And the point of all this is... what?

There's no denying that there were some peripheral references to Islam in Obama's childhood. Does that make him a muslim? Hmmm... why don't we ask the person who might know that best? How about Barrack Obama?

The idea that Obama is a Muslim wolf in Christian clothing waiting for the first moon of his presidency to begin howling the night away is more ridiculous and outlandish than anything Stephen King and Dan Brown could come up with together.
