Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by Yaakov Watkins (United States), Dec 24, 2007 at 15:17

He's not a Moslem. As a kid, his parents or someone registered him in Indonesia as a Moslem. It obviously wasn't very important to him or them. His religion is apparently liberal Democratic powerseeking politics.

Strategically, as a Jew, I can tell you that if some Moslem idiot assassinates him or tries and fails, Israel is set forever. It would be the worst possible thing the Moslem extremists could do for themselves and for Arabs in general.

But I don't think that they are that stupid. They would try to curry favor and he would have to prove that he wasn't being prejudiced. It would be Leiberman in reverse.
