Those of you who think his religion is a moot point... In Islam, the father's religion is the religion of the family... He was educated in Indonesia and was listed as a muslim and Indonesian citizen... Hamas is hoping he becomes president then retracted the statement when they realized it was hurting him...

The bottom line is... you can color your hair blonde and call yourself blonde but your roots are still dark. The way a child is brought up is what they will lean on in adulthood.

AND let me remind you that of ALL the religions in the world, the folks who have brought more than 11 thousand terrorist attacks against unarmed cilivilians since 9/11/01 has been predominantly one religion - and it AIN'T BUDDHIST!

Oh I hear all you apologists crying but what about the people who bomb abortion clinics and McVeigh and blah blah blah...

First of all, I could probably count those attacks on my fingers and possible toes (and yes, I have all of them and no extras)

Secondly, the LEADERS of this "peaceful" religion have come right out and stated their goals are to put all of North America under one caliphate. Don't know what that is?... Then do you're research before you start spouting off about Islam. If you don't know what that is, you don't know diddly about Islam.

How about "taqqiya"... so how can we trust what they say when they say one thing in English and another OPPOSITE thing in Arabic? 3 out of 4 AMERICAN Mosques preach jihad and taking down America. Do you know how many mosques and Middle Eastern Studies departments are funded by Saudi Arabia? Do you know that the current Qu'ran is an interpretation out of Saudi Arabia which is much different than the EARLIER texts that were found in a Yemen Mosque?

Probably not, but you, who wrap yourselves in the religious article of the 1st amendment have NO idea about Islam because you are looking at it with a western viewpoint. If this guy were ANY other religion, I wouldn't care two hoots but this extremist point of view, which is held by a large portion of the Muslim community, threatens democracy and is incompatible with it

So do your research about what you purport to know about but OBVIOUSLY DO NOT!
