To Shlomo

Reader comment on item: Sheikh Obama and His Two Wars
in response to reader comment: He is a Muslim, not a Christian

Submitted by Peter Herz (United States), Dec 18, 2009 at 21:44

Obama probably doesn't know beans about Imam Ali and his sons Hassan and Hossein, so I doubt he is Sunni, Shi'ah, or whatever. Dr. Pipes has pointed out his ignorance of most points of Islamic theology and history many times.

Obama takes on the coloration of his audience to try to win them to his side, whether they are African-American Christians in Chicago or the delegates of various Muslim states gathered at Cairo. He speaks of Jesus as Messiah to one audience; and adds "PBUH" after mentioning Jesus (as if Jesus Christ is just another dead guy awaiting the last judgment) when he speaks to the latter. It's politics. Nothing more.
