I agree with Phil, it bothers me that there are so many confirmed articles on Obamas heritage, and he won't come out and say he was born to a Muslim father.... Honesty is one of the qualities Americans admire in a President, It is hard to find, and I believe a person's background, their childhood, their associations, their views are equally important to investigate. Many Americans do not understand that if Barack Obama were to stand with the muslims, should the political winds shift, as he states in his book, for the worst, he would stand with the Muslims. To me that says, if he agrees with Islamic nations on policy, he may abandon his promise to Israel, to be fair to them, or he could allow Ahmadinejad to continue in his enrichment of Uranium leading to nuclear weapons. Ahmadinejad and Hizbollah, Hamas are all radicals. This would be a tragedy for Israel, or the United States, and would be a total change in Obama's policies. Can we trust his words, If he reverts back to being a Muslim?
