Reader comment on item: Obama Would Fail Security Clearance
in response to reader comment: Mr. Pipes: All of Barak's family names are MUSLIMS. We don't need to be persuaded, we already know he is Muslim?

My intention Joe, is not to go against your statement but conterpoint some of it to establish a dynamic.

Michelle is/can be the female of Michael which is a Jewish name.

Sasha is a very common name in Russia and adjacent former soviet areas. It is also a nickname in those areas- much for Jewish boys. In South America there are Sasha (s) who are women, very catholic.

Maya is a very common name in South America related to the indigenous of that area.

Sara, needless to say is a Jewish name.

Obvioussly, Omar. Qasim, Hussain and (maliha-this one I do not discuss), are related to Arab Muslims.

My point is that 50 % of your cited names do not prove that he is a muslim. So the names are not proof enough.

I stand by Dr. Pipes research.

BTW: I detest Hussain Obama.....I"m not for him at all. I"m still in a hope that a miracle happens and even if elected, he will be expurged shamefully for being the kind that he is. His full legacy is pathetic. And, I'm not amazed that that Opra, that I deeply deplore, support him.

Submitting....
