On March 25, during an interview on Hiwar TV, broadcasting from London, Syrian writer Muhydin Lazikani said that "all the childhood memories of the man who rules the White House are Shiite memories" and that "that is why he is so anxious for Iran to emerge victorious." On April 10, London-based Iranian opposition activist Abu Muntasir Al-Baloushi said: "Barack Hussein Obama is the son of a Shiite father... Some people call him the Iranian lobby in America." He was speaking on the Saudi 4Shbab TV channel.


Following are excerpts:


Hiwar TV March 25, 2015


Syrian Writer Muhydin Lazikani: There is one thing we must not forget. I am not peddling some theory, and I am not being racist, but Barack Hussein Obama is the son of a Shiite Kenyan father. He spent much of his childhood in Mombasa, south Kenya. I visited this very area, and I can tell you that it is mostly Shiite.

All the childhood memories of the man who rules the White House are Shiite memories. This is why the Iranian issue is so important to him, and why he is so anxious for Iran to emerge victorious, and for Syria and all the countries of the Arab Gulf to be shattered.

Abu Muntasir Al-Baloushi: Barack Hussein Obama is the son of a Shiite father. Barrack Hussein Obama is the son of a Shiite father. There is no doubt that he is Iran's lifesaver. Some people call him the Iranian lobby in America. He suffers from a peculiar complex. He believes that "Wherever we go, the Sunnis are fighting us." So what is the historical solution? Shiite expansion is ready. So he imposed this Shiite expansion on Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Iran, and Afghanistan. Any wise enemy of Islam realizes that Shiite expansion is the best method to destroy Islam from within. Even America did not do what the Shiites have done in Iraq. Even the Zionist Jews did not do such things to the Palestinians. The [Americans] believe that they can fight the Sunnis – they call it terrorism, but this is not what they care about. They want to destroy the entire ideology. Shiite expansion is the best method to achieve this, and the Shiites are ready, because they have an ideology to that effect, they have the scholars, they have got it all… So America has used them. If I were in America's place, I would used them too.
