Is he still a Muslim?
Public opinion polls lately have pointed out that there is an increasing number of people expressing the opinion that Barack Obama is a Muslim, not so much a Christian and confused about either choice. The pundits simply pick one of the choices and ridicule it based on their original positions.
My opinion is with the Muslim choosers and we will soon understand why their numbers are increasing. More and more people are beginning to do the basic research. As a self proclaimed ignoramus, (we don’t know) I spend some time on the internet trying to understand how the other side thinks. It helps to know how to become a Muslim.
The easiest way to become a Muslim is to be born a Muslim. If your Father was a Muslim, you are automatically a Muslim. It is in your blood. If your Father becomes an atheist Marxist, you are still a Muslim, especially if your step father is a Muslim and enrolls you in a Wahabist school.
Another way to become a Muslim is to say, “Muhammad was the Messinger of Alla (God) and there is no other.” Muhammad was called the seal of the prophets, indicating there has not been one since and never will be one again. All the other requirements are secondary to this concept. There are other requirements which include daily prayers in a proscribed manner, fasting, payment of Zakat (tithting) and participation in the Haj (going to Mecca at least once in your lifetime).
Becoming a Muslim is like joining a labor union, easy to get in, hard to get out. The way you get out of being a Muslim to say, “Muhammad was not the last messenger of God”. There are two issues here. The belief that God had a messenger and that there has never been another messenger since that time. This leaves Mormon conversion to be problematic because of their belief in a modern day Prophet. Converting to any other religion is still problematic if it includes renouncing Muhammad.
Before we get into whether Obama
is a Muslim, let’s look at
what happens when you stop being a Muslim. If you are asked by a Muslim

on the circumstances of why you are asked you may have another option
dying on the spot. If you are an ex Muslim, you are allowed three days
reconsider before you die or you may be asked to pay Jizya (head tax on
infidels). This is the basic principle of piracy and is justified as a
legitimate religious act by Mulsims in many countries. The US won its
against Islam when it put a stop to piracy and secured the Tripoli
and the rest of the Christian world continued to pay tribute to Muslims
many years. For the record, George Bush was asked to convert in one of
appearances by Amadinajad. No one took it seriously. Sharia law has two
of crimes, one against Muslims and one against Infidels. This is

In my research I found the most
revealing statements of Obama to have been made during the apology tour
in his speach to Egyptian elites. His words below and my comments in
of this conviction is rooted in
my own experience. I am a Christian, but my father came from a Kenyan
that includes generations of Muslims. As a boy, I spent several years
Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and the
dusk. As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found
and peace in their Muslim faith."

speech in the White House He told of the constitutional right for
Muslims to build a Mosque anywhere they chose and the news went around

next morning, however he dropped the bomb that he would not take sides

Western Europe, you know that the Cordoba mosque was a Victory monument

tribute and prepare at once to outfit a naval squadron to visit the
Mediterranean in strength. Ultimately, he proposed, America should
arrange for an international concert of powers composed of all those
nations whose shipping and citizens were preyed upon. "Justice and
Honor favor this course," he wrote, adding that it would also save
money in the long run.
