How I see Obama

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Fajri Al Kautsar (Indonesia), Sep 10, 2008 at 16:20

Assalamualaikum All,

I'm a muslim from Indonesia. One of the most important trait for a muslim if not for anyone is honesty. Let's face it Obama is a politician and politicians lies. I learn not to trust them. If he lied to get his seat at the oval office then he's not much of a good muslim, you can keep him for all I know...

I lived in Indonesia with many friends both muslim and non-muslims. There are some people which ended up as muslim-extremists. But in the end how do you expect some from 220million people not to deviate from their common sense if our government officials are filled with corrupted people who have no regards to our peoples education and well being....

Most extremists are basically not that well educated and not really having a good life. In Indonesia people have lived in harmony for hundreds of years even when the netherlands are still occupying. Normally some clash happens when the peoples stomach are not filled and everyting was very difficult, they're easily provocated by some people who have certain interest and not wanting peace....

Why do you have to stand up for anybody who lied to get to the oval office. Anyway only him and God knows the truth....

Wassalamualaikum..

Submitting....
