It won't work.

It is rather meaningless in the Middle East, where even so called Black Moslems are not considered to be "real" muslim, never mind the remark about his muslim family made by a man considered to be an apostate, moslem when a kid , and christian today.

What islamic leaders are expecting from Obama is "simply" to agree to ALL their demands.

They won't accept anything less .

Already , caricatures of Obama with a yamulka and a Star of David were circulated on jihadist websites BEFORE Obama's victory, now, followed by saudi blackmail, what a good start !

Americans should not be surprised that Obama's Muslim background - untouchable before the election - is now being utilized by the great pretender to make himself appear to be an authority on all things Muslim and/or Middle Eastern. It's a facade, of course. But nothing about Obama is authentic, save his dishonesty.
