Malik Obama confirms his half-brother Barack grew up a Muslim

With apologies to FOX news, we report - you decide.
"Barack Obama's half brother Malik said Thursday that if elected his brother will be a good president for the Jewish people, despite his Muslim background. In an interview with Army Radio he expressed a special salutation from the Obamas of Kenya."

In a remarkable denial issued last November that still stands on the official campaign website, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs issued a statement explaining that "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."

Apparently Malik Obama, himself a Muslim, had not read the press release.
Do I know for absolute certainty that Barack Obama is a Muslim pretending not to be one for political expediency? No. However, that isn't the standard needed to be concerned about electing someone president of the United States. While Islamic extremists are at war with our country we can not seriously entertain the thought of electing this guy. This is not just a case of his brother assuming he is Muslim. There are several things that point to him being less than honest about this question.
Melanie Phillips is the most recent commentator to draw attention to the massive body of evidence that leaves no doubt that Barak Hussein Obama was born a Muslim (Islam is patrilineal) and raised a Muslim (so registered in school, acknowledging attending Islamic classes, reported accompanying his step-father to the mosque, and able to recite the Koran in the original Arabic).
With the United States having a population base of over 300 million, we should be able find a presidential candidate without being concerned over whether the candidate is potentially a member of a fanatical religion which is dedicated (according to the Koran) to forced conversion of all others.

I may have many disagreements with Sen. McCain over policy, but I have no concern as to his allegiance to our country. Right or wrong, I have serious concerns with Sen. Barack Hussein Obama being elected president.

Bill, The Muslim thing doesn't bother me Obama says he isn't a Muslim I'll take that at it's face value. The thing that bothers me is after walking away from what ever minimal Muslim background he chose the Rev. Wright's church. Trinity UCC may be worse than Islam,how can a congregation that grew up in the USA not realize how great they have it even as minorities.

Bob,

If it was a different religion or a less important position he was applying for I might be able to agree. This isn't a religion you can just quit. If you're a Baptist and decide you don't want to be a Baptist anymore it's no big deal. However, these goofs don't give up that easy. I do concur that choosing the racist Trinity UCC church in his adulthood is equally troubling.

Ben,

We still have freedom of speech despite McCain's best efforts of "campaign finance reform." We can talk about the latent racism in his autobiography, his big ears, his middle name, his bitter wife, his crazy racist preacher, and his domestic terrorist buddies. If we get bored talking about that then we can discuss his extremist positions on issues.
