Apparently there is no difference in names but one word. Nevertheless there is a hell of difference between these personalities. Osama is one end and Obama is another but are afraid for being Muslim, pity on you!

US people proud to be citizen of a secular-democratic country. Suppose if a governing Christian president converted to Islam, so he/she will be ousted? If a Muslim president come to echelon of Governance than he will be in good position to communicate with Muslim World, which currently supposed to be root of all evils. It will bring peace and harmony to world. But some dogmatic people don't want to remove the misconceptions, intentionally created between Islam and other religions.

Today I found that few US politicians are narrow minded, non secular and undemocratic. They just raised empty slogans of democracy and equity. If you think that Obama has good track record and have good character, so what if he Muslim? If he were a Muslim, are he found engaged in killing innocent people, involved in corruption, fraud, debauchery, led astray or he not a good son, nice friend, a humble husband, a loving father? If he is a good politician, so vote or otherwise reject him.

He is popular among his people and opposition leaders are afraid of his popularity, so they using unfair statements creating the religious and racial slogans and trying cheap dirty tactics to defeat him.

He is neither Black nor White, Neither Christian or Muslim but the honest representative of the people of USA.
