Well, well, well, it's not just us conservatives who have wondered if President Obama is a Muslim. They are questioning his faith in the Muslim world as well.
Read from Atlas Shrugs:
Arab Media: Is President Obama a Muslim or an Apostate?
"This question was first discussed at Atlas in January of 2007. Of course I was smeared and denigrated for it at the time. It was ........extreme. lol. But the fact that it is being discussed in Arab media is a whole other thing.

... '[Obama] was born in Hawaii to a Kenyan father and a white American mother from the state of Kansas. His parents separated when he was in his twelfth year, when his father left his mother and returned to Kenya, thus leaving his mother responsible for raising him. Young Obama went to Jakarta after his mother married an Indonesian student, from which his mother bore Obama's half-sister Maya. The author Scott Toro, one of Obama's friends at the time, remembers that Obama was enrolled in an Islamic madrasa for two years, then later joined a Catholic school.
Obama converted to Christianity in the United Christian Church. ... Within this introduction, certain aspects of President Obama's introduction to his autobiography beg the following question: What is the position of Islamic law concerning this biography?
Islamic law stipulates that if a child is born with either one or both of his parents being Muslim, then the child's religion will also be Muslim. This applies if the father is Muslim and the mother is non-Muslim, such as in President Obama's case. Al-Hassan, Shurayh, Ibrahim, and Qatada said: "If one of (the parents) has submitted (to Islam), then the child is with the Muslim," for Islam dominates, but is not (itself) dominated (comment: This is a famous phrase from either the Qur'an or the hadith, but I'm not sure exactly how it's worded in English; it basically means Islam is superior to everything, and submits to nothing). And also according to the word of the prophet of God (PBUH): "No child is born except on nature (i.e. Islam), and then his parents make him Jewish, Christian, or Magian (Zoroastrian), as an animal produces a perfect young animal: do you see any part of its body amputated?" (Sahih al-Bukhari, V 2, Bk 23, No 441). Although Islamic law does not oblige those who have not reached puberty to practice Islam, the father of such a child is required to pay zakat and pray the funeral prayer if the child dies before reaching puberty. This shows that the child is Muslim from birth. Through these Islamic judgments, in comparison with the autobiography of President Barack Hussein Obama, we find that this president is either a Muslim or an apostate from Islam according to the strongest viewpoints of Islamic jurisprudence.'"
Wow! Does that mean our president's life is in jeopardy? Someone tell the Secret Service about what Islamic law says about apostates. Or better yet, ask Rifqa Bary.
If Obama is not a Muslim, then why does the new missile defense logo resemble the Islamic crescent and star?
