>The only issue Muslims take with Obama is the fact that as he has repeatedly defended himself against accusations that he is a Muslim, this has reinforced the islamophobic notion that no Muslim should or can be President. As at one time in this country, the popular notion was that no Black person could or should do the same thing, there are striking parallels with the experience of Muslims with the experience of other minorities, so Muslims hope to see a balance of tolerance from Obama.

Excuse me what is really Islamophobia? OK let us have a deal: get rid of the anti-semitic, anti-Christian anti-pagan anti-human and anti-reason drivel in the Qur'an and then we will stop being Islamophobic whatever that is. Deal?
