To Lactantius Jr. With due respects to your integrity & honesty, I beg to differ. There are over one million links on the internet to disprove that Obama was ever a Muslim. I could give you enough links if you so wish. Even if you read the link you gave me by Dr. Pipes, it does not say conclusively that Obama was or is a Muslim. The mere fact that he may have accompanied his step father (who was not a practicing muslim) a few times to a Mosque in Indonesia as a child proves nothing. Children sometime do go with their elders to places of worship, that does not necessarily prove they of that particular faith. So it is incorrect to jump to conclusions with no proof of conversion at all. See these links:

As far as the quotes by Ahmed of CAIR, that is nothing new. Every Muslim, I repeat Every Muslim would like to establish a world wide Umma (fellowship) and would want Islam to reign supreme, that is far fetched imagination of the Muslims. That would NEVER happen in the West. They have not been able to even do that in Muslim majority countries, so what makes anyone think and believe it could happen in the Christian/Secular countries of the West? Its the same with Christian Fundamentalists, no difference they are both two sides of the same coin. Go to any third world nation and see the activities of the Christian Fundamentalists and how they operate, they are no different to members of CAIR or other Islamic organizations operating in the West.
