Muslim Background could be an asset to attaining peace in the Middle East

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Pamela (United States), Jun 13, 2008 at 00:38

I don't believe that Barack Obama is a secret Muslim. I do believe that his stepfather was a Muslim, and that is why I believe that Obama's background may actually help him to achieve peace in the Middle East.

If the Muslims like him, then they are more likely to respect him and listen to him. Obama wants to talk to our enemies and I think if anyone can get through to them, he can.
