Is He A Muslim?
This should get you fired up, Diogenes. But then, you have too much time on your hands since school is out. Now, you have something to occupy your time: refuting this accusation.
The latest gossip circulating the internet is that Obama told the Egyptian foreign minister that he is indeed a Muslim. That sure would explain a lot, for example: the bowing to the Saudi king and the mixup when he said something about "my Muslim faith". Now, we all say odd things from time to time. But, I, for one, have NEVER mistakenly mentioned anything about "my Muslim faith". That's just too weird.
Read from Israel Matzav:
Egyptian foreign minister: Obama told me he's a Muslim
"This one seems to have skipped under the radar. Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed About Gheit told an Egyptian television station a few months ago that US President Barack Hussein Obama is still a Muslim.
'"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim," said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV. That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term "Islamic extremism" no longer be used in official government documents and statements.
Furthermore, the US is now accusing Israel of harming American interests in the Middle East. General David Petraeus, the head of US Central Command, said Israel's intransigence on resolving the conflict with the Palestinians is endangering US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.'
Pamela Geller has more details.
'This was a statement by Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit on Nile-TV. It was made on the «Round table show».
This is the statement recorded:
Adul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that He was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the step son of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.
Adul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health care reform, he would show the Muslim World how to deal with Israel.'
