Re Barak Obama for president

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by edith m. cord (United States), Dec 24, 2007 at 15:46

Dear Mr. Pipes,

What I would like to know about Mr. Obama is where do his sympathies lie? Could he be used as an entry point into the most powerful western nation? Isn't the goal of the Islamists to take us over, peacefully?

If he can be of use to the Islamists, they will not kill him. They will use him instead. We know from their own writings that all methods to achieve their goals are acceptable.

Somehow this is a subject that no one is broaching. What are your thoughts? or is it not politically correct to even ask this question?

I cannot reply to this question. But I take him at his word that he is now a Christian. I do not suspect him of being a surrepitious Muslim.
