OBAMA as President would surely mean MUCH TROUBLE WITH THE MUSLIM and ARAB WORLD

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by JERRY BORIS (United States), Aug 2, 2008 at 15:04

DANIEL PIPES,

The argument rages over whether Barack Hussein Obama is, or was a Muslim.

What is MORE important for decisions on whether he would make a good President or not, is that HIS PRESIDENCY would, without doubt, involve the Muslim and Arab worlds, in significant and UNENDING controversies harmful to American interests. The debate would inevitably HEIGHTEN the disputes in those Eastern worlds, amplifying the debate over whether American policy is hostile to, or favorable to Mideastern interests.

Further, the debate would additionally AMPLIFY the role of Israel in American politics. This topic would surely increase the ALREADY bubbling controversy over the role of Israel in American Foreign policy.

The Israel-American relationship would be bound to suffer, with considerable negative effects.

JERRY BORIS , PHILA PA.
