It’s not just this stumble:
Obama: Man of the World
The New York Times | March 06, 2007
”I was a little Jakarta street kid,” he said in a wide-ranging interview in his office (excerpts are on my blog, http://www.nytimes.com/ontheground). He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism — if he once studied the Koran with them.
Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ”one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
Moreover, Mr. Obama’s own grandfather in Kenya was a Muslim. Mr. Obama never met his grandfather and says he isn’t sure if his grandfather’s two wives were simultaneous or consecutive, or even if he was Sunni or Shiite. (O.K., maybe Mr. Obama should just give up on Alabama.)
See also Obama’s 57 States: A Muslim Freudian Slip? for more on how various Muslims consider him one of them.
See also Buraq Hussein Obama for some intuitive insight into BHO’s first name that replaced the all-American ‘Barry’.
And once again, I don’t really think Obama is still a secret hidden taqqiya Muslim. But please Obamaphiles, feel free to, bring on your hate mail.
