Not to defend Obama (those of you who know me know otherwise) but I thought he’d only been a Senator 8 years. Was he an Illinois Rep at the time?

Or has he been in the Senate that long?

Either way, good catch

Barak Obama is 50% Caucasian, 43.75% Arab, and only 6.25% Negro-African. He doesn't have the lawful 12.5% Negro-African to legally claim to be African-American. Barak Obama is ARAB-AMERICAN.

From someone who returned to this Country on Feb 11 this year after vacationing in Egypt and Israel. “We were asked everywhere about the Presidential race in America. There was great interest. The Jews came up to us and asked us many questions. They said they do not want the Clintons again. They warned us that Obama is a Muslim, not a Christian. In Egypt, the Arabs said the same thing to us; they said Obama is Muslim and they are amazed that Americans would consider electing a Muslim President of America!!”

I am so sick of people being afraid to confront Obama with the truth.

I'm surprised that nobody is checking Hussein's background in Indonesia. They're probably going a mile a minute over there right now about one of their 'sons' being a potential US president.

Somebody should get some interviews on record and ask some of his Islamic school administrators and teachers, neighbors, officials, Imams et al whether Hussein was a Muslim at any time while at madrassah.

And how about all of his Muslim relatives in Africa? Why are they being totally ignored? Why is nobody talking to them and getting their words on record?

If this is handled right, there's no way this wouldn't hurt Obama bigtime among voters in November. It's called 'opposition research'.

C'mon, people, think!

I want to add that if Republicans don't do a damned good job of this type of opposition research (on the assumption Hussein gets the 'Rat nod), the world at large will consider Republicans such hopeless naifs that even if the truth does become generally known eventually aboput his Islamic past and dishonesty, that people who voted for him will console themselves with the fact that Republicans have proved themselves just 'too out of it' to survive in today's world anyway because they failed to bring these things to light and properly exploit them in a timely manner.

We’re talking about a cult that doesn’t recognize minor status regarding religious affiliation. If Muslims worldwide beg to differ with this, then ask them why they worship somebody’s wildly self contradictory teachings as inviolable who married a child at seven and raped her at nine years of age.

Google Book Search:
In the Name of Elijah Muhammad: Louis Farrakhan and the Nation

Beginning with Master Farad Muhammad, believed to be God in Person, Gardell examines the origins of the Nation. His research on the period of Elijah Muhammad's long leadership draws on previously unreleased FBI files that reveal a clear picture of the bureau's attempts to neutralize the Nation of Islam. In addition, they shed new light on the circumstances surrounding the murder of Malcolm X. With the main part of the book focused on the fortunes of the Nation after Elijah Muhammad's death, Gardell then turns to the figure of Minister Farrakhan. From his emergence as the dominant voice of the radical black Islamic community to his leadership of the Million Man March, Farrakhan has often been portrayed as a demagogue, bigot, racist, and anti-Semite. Gardell balances the media's view of the Nation and Farrakhan with the Nation's own views and with the perspectives of the black community in which the organization actively works. His investigation, based on field research, taped lectures, and interviews, leads to the fullest account yet of the Nation of Islam's ideology and theology, and its complicated relations with mainstream Islam, the black church, the Jewish community, extremist white nationalists, and the urban culture of black American youth, particularly the hip-hop movement and gangs.

I’d like to see another Obama Muslim issue explored.

The northeast coast of Africa, home to Obama’s tribal Luo ancestors, was actively involved in slave use and slave trade at least until 1910.

Most northeast African slave traders were Muslim or Muslim converts.

Obama’s grandfather has been described as a “wealthy African landowner” in two sources I’ve read. To me, that means his business almost certainly required a large group of manual laborers to work the land.

I would love to know if Obama’s African family was involved in any way in the use or sale of slaves.

Perhaps someone here can clarify -- or verify -- what a Sean Hannity caller claimed today about Obama. Obama has a book, Dreams of (or from) My Father. Suposedly, on page 80, Obama says that the only way whites can make up for the wrongs they've done the blacks, is to all become one brethern under Islam.

That's not the exact wording, but I think I got the gist of it. Anyone else catch this?

Biracial heritage has caused identity crisis

As I imagined myself following Malcolm X’s call, one line in his book stayed me. He spoke of his wish that the white blood that ran through him, there by an act of violence, might somehow be expunged. I knew that, for Malcolm, that wish would never be incidental. I knew as well that traveling down the road to self-respect my own white blood would never recede into mere abstraction. I was left to wonder what else I would be severing if and when I left my mother at some uncharted border.
Source: Dreams from My Father, by Barack Obama, p. 80 Aug 1, 1996

There is some hope of eventual reconciliation between races

If Malcolm X’s discovery toward the end of his life, that some whites might live beside him as brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual reconciliation, that hope appeared in a distant future, in a far-off land. In the meantime, I looked to see where the people would come from who were willing to work toward this future and populate this new world.
