Turkey to cut Iran oil imports, bows to U.S. pressure

Turkey said on Friday it will cut imports of oil from Iran by a tenth, ceding to U.S. pressure a week after Washington warned Tehran’s customers they could incur U.S. sanctions unless they significantly reduce purchases.

March & Q1 2012: CNN Loses Half its Audience

CNN bore the brunt of the downward trend the news networks experienced this month and for much of the first quarter, when compared to the busy first few months of 2011.

So much for that “Global March to Jerusalem”

Dumbass Jew-haters fail. The good news is, four mentally defective Neturei Karta lunatics were attacked in Jordan!

Closer to home, the Toronto march was lame.

No joke: Fatwa issued against April Fools’ Day

Brought to you by the World Fatwa Management and Research Institute:


As-salamu `alaykum.

What is your opinion concerning what we call April Fools’ Day? Is it permissible to propagate lies to accommodate customs? Is there a difference between a white lie and a black lie?

Jazakum Allah khayran.


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Dear questioner, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you place in us, and we implore Allah, the Almighty to help us serve His cause and render our work for His Sake alone.
According to the dictionary, April Fools’ Day is a day for practical jokes, but in many places those jokes take the form of lies.

Islam condemns lying. Good people in general consider it a vice. If lying is originally forbidden, then April Fools’ would consequently be forbidden because of the unwarranted dismay and chagrin it causes, even if it is for just one hour. It plays with people’s trust, and is a pure emulation of vice.

In this regard the eminent scholar Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi states:
Telling lies is bad conduct. It is not proper for righteous people and true believers; rather, it is a sign of hypocrisy, as the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The hypocrite has three characteristics: he tells lies, breaks his promise, and breaches the trust” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) warned against lying for the purpose of entertaining people. He said, “Woe on anyone who speaks to entertain the people by lying, woe on him, woe on him…” (Abu Dawud, At-Tirmidhi, and An-Nasa’i).

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) also said, “One is not considered a true believer till he abandons lying for fun and arguing even if he was telling the truth” (Ahmad and At-Tabarani). Several Prophetic hadiths warned the Muslims against frightening others seriously or jokingly. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “It is not permissible for anyone to frighten a Muslim” (Abu Dawud).

Consequently, lying is forbidden in any form, and on this occasion (April Fools’ Day) it is forbidden for four reasons:

1. The prohibition of lying which is confirmed by the Qur’an and the Sunnah,

2. The unwarranted grief or fear it may bring on a person or his entire family, even if only for one hour,

3. The betrayal of trust it entails,

4. The emulation of a silly custom that is not ours, that of lying.

Sometimes the idea of telling a lie on this day may be obnoxious to the whole society, not only to a person.

Moreover, Sheikh `Atiyyah Saqr, former head of Al-Azhar Fatwa Committee, adds:

It is agreed upon by all religions and sound minds that truthfulness is a virtue and lying is a vice. To tell the truth, your words should reflect reality; to tell a lie is to contradict what you are actually saying or doing. The worst kind of lying in sayings is perjury and in deeds it is hypocrisy.
Lying is forbidden unless it is for necessity.

In that case, the principle “necessity makes the unlawful permissible” applies. Necessity has to be evaluated and used when no other option is available. Some of these acceptable lies is what we call connotation, a word carrying a double meaning. The Muslim may use the positive not the negative interpretation of the word.

It was reported that lying was legitimatized to benefit (someone or something), not to impair (the same). The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “A person who reconciles between two people and says good things, even if it is not true, is not a liar” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

Umm Kulthum bint `Uqbah also said, in an addition to the hadith, “I never heard the Prophet permitting lying except in three cases: during war, to reconcile between two belligerent parties, the usual talk between the spouses.” What is meant by this talk is love talk to relieve the sufferings of life.

Anti-Adoption Traditions in the Muslim World

Two years ago, a 13-year-old Somali boy named Abdi was reportedly recruited to be a suicide bomber when he was an orphan. Last year, a Pakistani political leader, Jahanara Watto, penned a brutally honest piece in an English daily observing that most suicide bombers are orphans under age 17. Both stories followed a story in a London-based pan-Arab daily that quoted an Iraqi interior minister as saying al Qaeda was targeting orphans as future bombers.

These headlines underscore a troubling reality in our global Muslim community: we have abandoned our most vulnerable children—because of an antiquated, shortsighted, and regressive stricture that makes adoption illegal. There are a lot of excuses that are used to sanction a ban on adoption: that children shouldn’t lose their biological lineage and that, after hitting puberty, children would be taboo to their adopted parents. In Islam, there is a concept of maharam, or a relative with whom sexual intercourse would be considered incest. That includes parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, children; “in-law maharam” is an accepted concept to cover parents in-law, children in-law, and stepchildren. Alas, mainstream Islamic interpretation hasn’t included adopted children. Thus, the logic goes, it means a father could marry his adopted daughter.

Canada Slaps Sanctions on Assad Family

Canada tightened the sanctions Friday on Syria, targeting President Bashar al-Assad’s wife, mother, sister and sister-in-law a week after the European Union made a similar move.

Stepping up its sanctions as fighting raged after an embattled Assad said he had accepted a peace plan to put an end to a year of violence that has left over 9,000 dead, Canada said it sought a “Syria that respects the fundamental rights of all its people.”

“Canada’s position is clear: Assad must go,” Foreign Minister John Baird said in a statement.

McGill’s Institute of Islamic Studies receives $1.25 M gift from State of Qatar

McGill University and its Institute of Islamic Studies have received a generous $1.25 million gift from the State of Qatar. The gift, announced today during a visit to McGill by His Excellency Salem Al-Shafi, the first Ambassador from Qatar to Canada, coincides with the Institute’s 60th anniversary and will be used to fund a series of conferences to be held over the next year.

“We believe this contribution will further assist the Institute in carrying on the distinguished role it has played, since its establishment in 1952, in advancing research related to Islam and the history and civilization of the Islamic world,” said His Excellency Al-Shafi. “We also believe that the Institute shares our vision that knowledge and education are key to meet the challenges of our changing world and provide the tools to better understand the ever-evolving relationship between religion and mankind and how it has contributed to our well-being and the coexistence of peoples.”

“We are deeply appreciative of the State of Qatar’s generous gift, which  will help to further the vision of founder Prof. Wilfred Cantwell Smith, who 60 years ago conceived of our Institute of Islamic Studies, then the first of its kind in North America,” said Prof. Heather Munroe-Blum, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill. “The work of the Institute is even more relevant today, not only in advancing the understanding of Islamic history and Muslim societies, but also to ensure a plurality of voices in scholarly dialogue.”

McGill’s Institute of Islamic Studies was established in 1952 with the goal of attracting scholars and students from the Muslim world, North America and Europe. Its traditional strengths have ranged from pre-colonial Islamic history, philosophy, theology and law to Islam in South Asia, Ottoman and Turkish Studies, and Arabic and Persian literature. More recently, the Institute has also developed its expertise in the history of Arabic-Islamic science and in the modern-day history and politics of the Middle East, with the goal of relating Islamic antiquity to the contemporary Muslim world.

UK: 5 year old forced into marriage

She was one of 400 children to receive assistance from the government’s Forced Marriage Unit in the last year.

The figures have emerged as the public consultation into criminalising forced marriage in England, Wales and Northern Ireland comes to an end.

Amy Cumming, joint head of the Forced Marriage Unit, said 29% of the cases it dealt with last year involved minors.

“The youngest of these was actually five years old, so there are children involved in the practice across the school age range,” she said.

To protect the child, the authorities have not disclosed details of the case or where the marriage took place.

But the case comes as no surprise to the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO), which deals with more than 100 cases of forced marriage a year.

“We have had clients who are in their very early teens, 11-year-olds, 12-year-olds, the youngest case we had was nine years old,” said IKWRO campaigns officer Fionnuala Murphy.

Now the consultation on forced marriage has come to an end, IKWROs hope it will become a criminal offence.

“Our organisation is pro-criminalisation because we believe that it will empower victims to know that this is a crime, to stand up to their parents and to stand up for their own rights and it will enable them to come forward and seek help and say what’s happening to me is wrong.”

Isi Leibler in the Jerusalem Post: CIJA a cowardly cabal of “PR experts”

The Jewish establishment blackballs the small but effective Israel advocacy group CIJR.

Canadian Jews can take pride in the remarkable infrastructure of educational, religious and cultural institutions they have created. The fact that assimilation and intermarriage in Canada are far less advanced than in the United States is largely attributable to their magnificent network of Jewish day schools. Canadian Jews also have a splendid record of support for Israel and their donors are among the most generous contributors to projects in the Jewish state. Regrettably, in recent years the community’s public advocacy on behalf of Israel has dramatically declined. This paralleled a major upsurge in anti-Semitism and demonization of Israel as a consequence of Muslim immigration and intensified hostility from the Canadian left. The downturn had its genesis in 2004 when the principal communal fund-raisers, concerned about increased anti-Semitism and hostility to Israel, decided to supplant the traditional communal advocacy bodies – the Canadian Jewish Congress and the Canada Israel Committee – with a “more professional” organization. The new entity, the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CIJA), was commissioned to deal exclusively with “advocacy on Canada Israel relations while the Canadian Jewish Congress would handle issues of Jewish concern.” This effectively neutralized the central role of the Canadian Jewish Congress in determining policies on Israel and anti-Semitism and replaced it with an undemocratic body headed by professional public relations consultants. The federations, via the United Israel Appeal, allocate very substantial funds to the CIJA. The budget this year, including mega-salaries for the principal officers, amounts to more than $11 million. However, from the outset, the new team of PR professionals, headed by CEO Herschel Ezrin, was soon identified as archetypical practitioners of the discredited sha shtil approach, displaying passivity and determined to maintain a low profile. Their vast financial resources concentrated on campaigns emphasizing that Israelis “are just like the rest of us Canadians”. Their PR philosophy, depicted as a model that other communities would do well to emulate, was outlined in a surrealistic internal document circulated in 2004 titled “The 10 Commandments.” It was never formally repudiated and to this day appears to reflect CIJA policy. The document must be seen to be believed. Commandment 5 states: “Do not directly attack or assign blame to the Palestinians or their leadership. Canadians will not tolerate – or believe – that one side is more responsible for the violence than the other.” Commandment 6 says: “Do not ask Canadians to pick a side in the conflict or assign blame. Very few Canadians are prepared to assign blame for ongoing violence or attacks.” Commandment 7 states explicitly: “Do not ask the government of Canada to appear – or be – more favorable to Israel… There is no support for further government support of Israel.” Commandment 9 warns: “Do not attack the media for being biased against Israel… There is no constituency to support a public effort to attack the media.” That such a document was not immediately condemned and withdrawn demonstrates how a group of wealthy donors, dazzled by “PR expertise,” bypassed the will of the vast majority of Canadian Jews. The obsession to avoid “confrontation” was especially acute on the campuses where Hillel activists were explicitly directed to avoid debates, ignore Arab anti-Israeli tirades and never display examples of Islamic anti-Semitism to avoid offending Muslim groups. Three years ago, the PR mavens even managed to convince the Montreal federation to cancel the annual Israel Independence Day parade out of a fear of possible anti-Israeli counterdemonstrations. Fortunately, independent communal leaders, rabbis and school principals took it upon themselves to lead a grassroots revolt to retain the dignity of the community and Independence Day parades were reinstated. THE CIJA has a virtual monopoly on Israel advocacy in Canada. The exceptions are a plucky B’nai B’rith Organization which attempts to be more assertive and a small but highly effective body known as the Canadian Institute for Jewish Research (CIJR) headquartered in Montreal. It is headed by Prof. Fred Krantz, a distinguished academic who for 30 years headed an influential program titled “The Great Books in Western Civilization” at Concordia University and the Liberal Arts College. There he opposed administration kowtowing to Arab and radical students, which climaxed in 2002 when Binyamin Netanyahu was unable to address the university because of violent campus riots. CIJR, whose influence extends beyond Canada, operates on a shoestring budget of less than $200,000 and is staffed overwhelmingly by volunteers. Among other initiatives, it publishes a daily Internet newsletter viewed by more than 100,000 readers, which incorporates key data, original op-eds and reprints of articles relevant to activists. Its greatest success was to create an elite group of student activists willing to take up the cudgels on behalf of Israel on the campus. Since the creation of CIJA, the Jewish establishment has totally blackballed CIJR and denied it any funding. When I accepted an invitation from Krantz to participate in CIJR’s 20th anniversary dinner, I was cautioned by various parties that I would be associating myself with an “extremist” body. However, in Montreal I discovered that far from being extreme, CIJR was a beacon of light in the world of Israel advocacy in Canada. When introducing me to the audience, Irwin Cotler, the former Canadian minister of justice and global champion for human rights, an icon of Canadian Jewry recognized as one of the most outstanding Diaspora Jewish personalities of our time, lauded the outstanding work undertaken by the CIJR. Equally telling was the address by Alan Baker, the Israeli ambassador to Canada, who was retiring after a four-year term. Like Cotler, Baker a former legal adviser to the Foreign Ministry, could hardly be described as an extremist. He too cast lavish praise on the CIJR as the most effective Canadian body promoting the case for Israel and, in particular, praised it for its splendid achievements on the campus. He also castigated the Jewish communal leadership for failing “to have the good judgment to appreciate an organization that is working so well in the field… and should have wider community support.” Canadian Jewish leaders, who fear that protesting against this state of affairs will shatter the “unity” of the Canadian Jewish community, are misguided. The blind reliance of establishment machers on PR specialists who appear to dictate policy in these areas reflects a malaise in Canadian Jewish leadership and highlights a need for greater accountability and grassroots public involvement. More importantly, if youngsters are dissuaded from confronting the scourge of moral equivalency whereby Israel’s acts of self-defense are deemed comparable to actions of its enemies, or instructed that speaking up in defense of Israel is counterproductive, then the ground is being established for future generations to distance themselves from Israel. The time for reform is now while Canadian Jews are blessed with a prime minister who has emerged as one of Israel’s staunchest international allies. Unlike the cowardly cabal of “PR experts,” Stephen Harper is willing to publicly distinguish between Islamic fundamentalists seeking the destruction of the Jewish state and the right of Israel to defend itself. However, we cannot expect statesmen to be more pro-Israel than the self-appointed spokesmen of the Jewish community.


France: Police nab 20 suspected terrorists

A day after terrorist Mohammed Merah was buried in the outskirts of Toulouse, where he murdered four Jews and three soldiers, French authorities are stepping up efforts to crack down on potential terrorist cells.

French police arrested some 20 suspected terrorists in dawn raids Friday, a source privy to the operations said. Most of the raids were carried out in the city of Toulouse, and police sources reported finding some arms, including at least one Kalashnikov machinegun.

Insurers Win $9.4 Billion Judgment Against Hizbullah in 9/11 Lawsuit

A U.S. district-court judge has awarded insurers $9.4 billion after entering a final judgment against Hizbullah in a lawsuit over the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks that left almost 3,000 people dead.

U.S. District Court Judge George Daniels in the Southern District of New York said Hizbullah must pay the damages to insurers that sought to recoup payments to business and property policyholders for losses from the attacks.

The group of insurers, which includes subsidiaries of Chubb Corp., AXA Group, OneBeacon, and Munich Reinsurance Co., won in 2006 default judgments against Hizbullah and al-Qaida when the two never contested the suit.

Al-Qaida militants hijacked four planes and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington and a Pennsylvania field on Sept. 11, 2001.

Al Qaeda’s Network in Iran

An al Qaeda cell slated to take part in one of the final plots ordered by Osama bin Laden made use of an Iran-based terror network that, according to the Obama administration, operates “under an agreement between al Qaeda and the Iranian government.” That revelation has emerged from legal proceedings in Germany, including the trial of Ahmad Wali Siddiqui, an al Qaeda recruit who took the stand for the first time last week in Koblenz.

Diplomats target Harper government’s ‘blind’ support of Israel

According to a trio of active and retired diplomats, the Harper government’s unequivocal support of Israel has exacerbated tensions in the region and created a negative impact on the peace process.

“In the eyes of the Arab world, Canada has changed. There is no denying this reality. The facts are there for all to see,” Wael Aboulmagd, Egypt’s ambassador to Canada said at Carleton University on Monday evening.

“Blind, unquestionable support to either side cannot help bring peace to our region. In fact, a strong argument can be made that such unqualified support complicates matters, and in effect, strengthens the forces within each side who are opposed to compromise.”

Aboulmagd was joined at Carleton by Paul Heinbecker, former Canadian ambassador to the United Nations, and Dr. Abdulla Nasher, the former Yemeni ambassador to Canada. The three diplomats were invited to weigh in on the state of Canadian-Arab relations at an event hosted by the university’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.

While the goal for the panel discussion was a more ecumenical overview, the Palestinian territories quickly dominated the discussion — and support for Canada’s foreign policy was hard to find.

“It remains an open sore in the Middle East, the idea that we should — that the Palestinians should get statehood only through negotiating directly with the Israelis, when the Israelis are showing little taste for negotiations,” said Heinbecker.

“It’s a bit like asking the lion and lamb to negotiate over dinner.”

Notable political attendees included the Liberals’ Stéphane Dion and the NDP’s Robert Chisholm, both of whom had to get a modicum of pleasure from the criticism they were hearing of the Conservatives.

That pleasure couldn’t have lasted long, though, as Heinbecker then said he believed the Israel-Palestine conflict isn’t a burning issue in the minds of most Canadians — and definitely not at the ballot box.

“You’re going to have this government until people get tired of it for some other reason. And in the meantime, I think it will be very difficult to move them off the position they’ve taken,” Heinbecker said. “Opportunities will be missed.”

Aboulmagd said the Canadian government’s change of positions on issues such as Israeli settlements, the status of Jerusalem, and the applicability of the Geneva conventions to the occupied territories has confused the Arab world.

All they really expect of Canada, he said, is impartiality.

“Canada, today, makes no secret of its overwhelming, unqualified, and unconditional support of the Israeli position in this conflict. … I can assure you that this unqualified support does very little too move the process forward or to convince Israel of the need to return to the negotiating table.”

Nasher, who initially spoke of Canada’s good standing in the Arab world, changed his tune slightly by the end: “I hope that the Canadian government will shift … to be more balanced and more fair and more just.”

This left it to Fen Hampson, the director of the Paterson School, to conclude on a more positive note. “I guess,” he said, “I’m a little bit more optimistic about some of the things we’ve heard about the Harper government’s foreign policy towards the region.”


Morons to “profile” CSIS

“Spies, experts in interrogation, and profilers  We are seeking your talents for the surveillance of shady individuals who are threatening the security of our communities.

Following a detailed study of the declaration launched by 70 community organizations endorsing a campaign of non-collaboration with the Canadian Security  Intelligence Service (CSIS), the Peoples Commission Network (PCN) has identified a real threat to our community: CSIS agents themselves. Thanks to the testimonies of their victims, the PCN has been able to document the menacing tactics used by CSIS agents and we are now ready to give  them a taste of their own medicine: surprise visits at work, harassment, and intimidating interrogations. On March 29th, we will greet these secret agents at the doors of their bunker with our cameras, our questions, and our own inquisitive actions.

We invite you to join us at this gathering to subject CSIS to what these agents have done to our communities.

Jew hatin’ douch goblin is an “advisor” for the Global March to Jerusalem

Times of Israel:

“These days it seems that it takes Tutu to tango. The Arch, once famous for his campaign to end apartheid in South Africa, has done one of those classic tango dance pivots and charged off in the opposite direction, straight into the arms (pun intended) of despots and lunatics like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The man whose name is synonymous with civil rights in South Africa and the man who’s most identifiable with the hatred he shows for Israel have become dance partners.

Iranian-funded activists plan to march on Jerusalem on the 30th of March in commemoration of Palestinian Land Day. Of course, no protest/rally/excuse to drum up condemnation of Israel would be complete without The Arch, who will act as adviser. The usual suspects will all be there: British MP George Galloway, he of the rabid Hezbollah flag-waving and anti-Israel invective; leaders of the BDS (Boycott Divestment and Sanctions) movement; and a healthy dose of convicted terrorists.

Friday’s event has the official stamp of approval from Abd al-Aziz Amru, a senior Hamas member who has been convicted for his part in the bombing of Cafe Hillel in Jerusalem, fresh back from a visit to South Africa, where he appealed to radical Muslim organizations to join in. Although it sounds like a plot for a bad B movie, in reality it is a very serious event.

The idea (not to mention the visuals and press coverage) of thousands of Palestinians and their supporters converging on Israel’s borders is unprecedented, and, coupled with the UNHRC’s intended probe into Israeli settlements, is nightmare fodder. An event like the Global March on Jerusalem that occurs under the guise of a peaceful human-rights protest is misleading, to say the least.

You can be sure that when an event like this has the endorsement of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and the funding of Ahmadinejad, human rights and peace is not so much a priority as it is a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing.

I would like to pose the following questions to the Arch and his merry band of terror supporters: Where was your march to Sudan to protest genocide? Why are you not marching on Syria’s Assad? Where are your calls for the freedom of Tibet? Archbishop Tutu, are you not concerned that your friend Mahmoud hangs 17-year-old homosexuals in the town square? Where is your march of indignation when a Moroccon woman is forced to marry her rapist and suicide is her only escape?

I would have assumed that, as someone who is considered a supporter of human rights and equality, you would take umbrage at your dance partner’s calls for the elimination of the state of Israel. You are aware, I hope, that elimination includes people.

Archbishop Tutu, where are your lamentations over the slaughter of a rabbi and three children, killed because they were Jewish, singled out and murdered in the name of religion?

Your silence is deafening.

But gather your cronies and march on Jerusalem, the Holy City that guarantees religious rights and freedom for all. We know it isn’t really about land. No, it’s far more pernicious than that — a dance with the devil.”

Arab spring leads to wave of Middle East state executions

Middle Eastern countries have stepped up their use of capital punishment, executing hundreds of people as rulers across the region seek to deter the wave of uprisings sweeping the Arab countries.

Despite a significant reduction in the number of countries that used the death penalty worldwide last year, there was a sharp rise in executions in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yemen, according to Amnesty International’s annual capital punishment survey, released on Tuesday.

China remained at the top of the list of the countries with the worst record of executions last year. Authorities in China maintained their policy of refusing to release precise figures on the death penalty in the country, which they consider a state secret.

Amnesty said it had stopped publishing figures on China, available from public sources, because they were likely to “grossly underestimate” the true number, but reported that the country had executed thousands of people, more than the rest of the world put together. According to Amnesty, at least 676 judicial executions are known to have been carried out in 2011 globally, excluding China, up from 527 in 2010. More than half took place in Iran, which executed at least 360 people. But reports about the regime’s campaign of secret and mass hangings of prisoners have made it impossible for Amnesty to publish the true figures there too.

“Amnesty has also received credible reports that a large number of unacknowledged executions took place in Iran, executions that would almost double the number of ‘official’ ones there,” it said. In December, Amnesty warned of a “new wave of drug offence executions” in Iran, which it described as a “killing spree of staggering proportions” in an effort to contain drug-related crimes.

Saudi Arabia executed at least 82 people, which was 55 more than the minimum known figure for the previous year. Iraq, which had acknowledged only one execution in 2010, used the death penalty at least 68 times in 2011. Yemen executed at least 41, North Korea 30, Somalia 10, Sudan seven and Bangladesh five. Egypt and the United Arab Emirates are known to have executed at least one person, but exact numbers were unknown for Malaysia and especially for Syria, which has been rocked by violence in the past year.

The escalating use of the death penalty in the Middle East is seen as a tactic by the authorities to spread fear among dissidents in order to prevent them from participating in pro-democracy movements.

Why Obama Isn’t Backing Gay Marriage

For those wanting to understand why the political deliberation over gay marriage is such a sensitive subject for this White House, look no further than the fact that it splits the two core constituencies that make up President Obama’s base: college-aged voters and African-Americans.

Young voters are the driving force behind making gay marriage politically acceptable. But black voters, despite their overwhelming support for the president, are among the leading opponents of gay marriage.
