Daniel Pipes replies:

I have received quite a bit of mail along the lines of this note.

As in the case of Mitt Romney, the fact that a presidential candidate like Obama has an unusual religious background has inevitable political consequences.

I did not espouse pro- or anti-Obama sentiments in this article but strictly limited myself to looking at some of the implications of his connections to Islam. That, I believe, is a valid, interesting, and important subject.
