Obama Muslim?

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Shlomo ben Avraham Pinheiro (United States), Dec 24, 2007 at 14:12

It is apparent on the surface Islamic and Christian beliefs parallel each other, it is only a matter of which person is considered the true prophet / messiah, Mohammed or Jesus? Being indoctrinated at a very young age is highly influential to a young mind. Whether Mr. Obama is a Muslim or converted Christian does not sway the persons conviction with such force as to enter metamorphosis.

Mr. Obama met secretly with Mr. Amenedijad [aka "the monkey" in Iran] during his visit to the University, why was was this? What was the apparent motivation? You can assume that it is for political support believing Obama will be the winner and become the President of the United States, but we will not readily know what the meeting was about, but 2+2 does not equal 5.

The problem lies in that both of these people are opportunists and still considered Muslim. When it is said that Mr. Obama has an inside knowledge of Islam, true, it is an advantage, but for who, Islam? or Democracy? A person can only have one master, not two [Janus], so Mr. Obama is either a Muslim waiting to become the first Caliphah or the first African American President of the United States or both.
