Skip to comments.My Muslim President Obama: Why members of the Islamic faith see him as one of the flock.

I know President Obama is not Muslim, but I am tempted nevertheless to think that he is, as are most Muslims I know. In a very unscientific oral poll, ranging from family members to Muslim acquaintances, many of us feel, just as African-Americans did for the non-black but culturally leaning African-American President Bill Clinton, that we have our first American Muslim president in Barack Hussein Obama.
I know it's odd to say this. At first, I thought I was the only Muslim engaging in this folly, and I am reluctant to express it lest right-wing zealots try to use "Muslim" as a smear and cite my theory as proof of an Islamic traitor in the White House or some such nonsense. But, since Election Day, I have been part of more and more conversations with Muslims in which it was either offhandedly agreed that Obama is Muslim or enthusiastically blurted out. In commenting on our new president, "I have to support my fellow Muslim brother," would slip out of my mouth before I had a chance to think twice.
"Well, I know he's not really Muslim," I would quickly add. But if the person I was talking to was Muslim, they would say, "yes he is." They would cite his open nature and habit of reaching out to critics, reminiscent of the Prophet Muhammad's own approach, and also Obama's middle name, Hussein. Most of the Muslims I know (me included) can't seem to accept that Obama is not Muslim.
Of the few Muslims I polled who said that Obama is not Muslim, even they conceded that he had ties to Islam. These realists said that, although not an avowed and practicing Muslim, Obama's exposure to Islam at a young age (both through his father and his stint in Indonesia)

STOP THE MOSQUE
The Obama File consists of all that is known about Obama and backed up by links to his books, speeches, videos.
Best on the net.
Thanks for info. Had not seen it before. Great thanks for posting.
Obama went to Rev. Wright Church because the congregation was 10,000.
If the local Hindu Temple had 11,000 members, he’d have become a Hindu.
It was just a stepping stone to power.
I found the blog with the picture but no photo credits. Must find credits.
Obama at Islamic Prayer Meeting Just Before Christmas
The president is telling any who will listen that America is not a Christian Nation. He didnt attend the Christian Day of Prayer and has only been to a Christian church one time since he was elected. However, right before Christmas he had time for a Muslim Prayer Service. In the above photo he is getting ready to pray to Allah.
Lol! Them damn liberals take one bit of misinformation and run with it till they die like a horse that has been galloped to death. I guess when they got nothing real to say that is all they can do.
Ha! I heard that one night while listening. Terrorists are such a sorry lot. I say we get a bunch of gamers together and work ‘em out and teach them martial arts, send them over there to kill terrorists for sport. I’m up for it.
That nails it for me. It should for anyone who has read his first book and paid any attention at all to his campaign for the Presidency and he actions in office.
That said, it doesn't resemble a Christian church except in name.
The Muslim Brotherhood “Project”
By Patrick Poole
The full article says the 0bamas nominally joined a Unitarist assembly after the (staged?) break with Rev. Wright.
The article also says Rev. Wright reminds the Muslims of their firebrand mullahs more than of a Christian preacher. What a coincidence!
