Famed evangelist Franklin Graham issued a warning about the coming "storm of Islam" during a recent appearance on the Christian Broadcast Network's "700 Club," claiming that President Barack Obama is "very sympathetic to Islam" and that his policies will lead to the persecution of Christians in the United States.
"We’re going to see persecution, I believe, in this country, because our president is very sympathetic to Islam and the reason I say that ... is because his father was a Muslim, gave him a Muslim name, Barack Hussein Obama," said Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham. "His mother married another Muslim man, they moved to Indonesia, he went to Indonesian schools."
He continued, "So, growing up his frame of reference and his influence as a young man was Islam. It wasn’t Christianity, [it was] Islam."
Graham charged that U.S. foreign policy is being influenced by Muslim groups and that the White House has invited these organizations in — a development that he said began during the Bush administration in the years following the September 11 attacks.
"Our foreign policy has a lot of influence now from Muslims," he said. "We see the prime minister of Israel being snubbed by the president and by the White House and by the Democrats and it’s because of the influence of Islam. They hate Israel and they hate Christians, and so the storm is coming, I believe."
Graham warned that "radical Islamists" are "advising various levels of government" and that the situation will get worse.
"Nobody is saying anything about this and we as Christians are going to lose," he said.
