Anatomy of a World Leader

Anatomy of a World Leader by Alex Grey

After hearing Barack Obama’s speech in BerIin, and noting the degree of excitement and hope that he generated throughout many countries besides the US, I started to see him as one of the first true “world leaders.” This may be partly because of his extraordinary childhood and political life that has bridged many cultures. Obama’s restraint and intelligence, exhibited as foes were bating him throughout the campaign, his heartful clarity coming through in his talks are all qualities of a highly evolved person.

We need to consider our planetary citizenship, because solving the world’s ecological and economic problems, and creating a culture of peace and reconciliation will require the co-operation of all nations.

Perhaps you can use this symbol of Barack Obama to send him a prayer of support, to send all the loving hopeful healing and creative energy that we can focus on him so that he can perform the task of leadership in the most effective and powerful way for the greatest good, for the greatest number.

Obama Graffiti

Obama graffiti

I saw this on U Street NW, Washington, DC between 16th & 15th Streets. It strikes me as Obama done in the style of a “Get Your War On” cartoon.

Update 1: This same piece of graffiti seen in Denver. Now I want to know the story behind this.

Update 2: The artist is Scot Lefavor from Denver. A similar Obama piece and other work can be purchased at his online store. Scot is also responsible for these neat “ads”.

Obama Nominated for Caliph of Muslims

The New Islam – Choosing a Christian for their Caliph of Muslims.

Just call him “Mullah Barack Hussain Obama” or “Allama Obama” or just plain old “Pope BO.” According to MSN News, a Pakistani minister wants US President Barack Obama to become the “Amir-ul-Momineen” or Caliph of All Muslims.

Minister of State for Industries Ayatullah Durrani, of the ruling Pakistan People”s Party, said the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr festival, expected to be observed on September 11, would be a “golden opportunity” for Obama to offer Eid prayers and declare himself the leader of all Muslims. “In this way, all the problems of the Muslim world would be solved,” Durrani told The Nation newspaper.

Durrani, a former member of the Pakistan Ideological Council, contended that the Muslim world is in “dire need” of a Caliph and occupying this distinguished slot would provide Obama “exemplary titles” like “Mullah Barack Hussain Obama” or “Allama Obama”.

He said: “The time is approaching fast. Barack Hussain Obama must act now. This is a golden opportunity, Muslims badly need it.” Obama”s elevation to the Islamic Caliphate would be the “key to success,” he claimed ….
