"America..One Of the World's Largest Muslim Countries"

Barack Hussein Obama is already gearing up for his apologia to the Muslim world tomorrow in Cairo, and he decided to let us know in advance what to expect.

In an interview with France's Canal Plus that was just released on Tuesday evening, he said, "Now, the flip side is I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam.

And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. And so there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples."

Just a little while ago, Obama was telling the world in front of his friends in the Islamist government of Turkey that the US wasn't a Christian nation.

After this, it's pretty obvious what kind of nation he perceives us to be, even if it reveals the Prevaricator-in-chief as severely math challenged.

The numbers for American Muslims vary wildly, because Islamist pressure groups groups like CAIR and ISNA have a vested interest in bumping the numbers, because the US census doesn't account for religion and because some surveys count the Nation of Islam as Muslims and some don't. But the non-partisan Pew Trust in its 2008 Pew Center survey estimates that there are only about 1.8 million Muslims in America, around .6%, most reliable estimates put it at around 2 million and I'd be surprised if the actual total was anything over 3 million even counting the Nation of Islam...less than 1%. Compare that with the Pew Survey's figures on self-identified Christians at 78.4% of the US population, around 245 million.

Obviously, as Melanie Phillips says, this isn't so much a statement of fact by the president so much as an aspiration and a goal.

It was taboo during the campaign, but as he gets more secure and sure of himself, President Obama is less and less afraid of letting his inner Muslim blossom, as ABC's Jake Tapper reveals:

The other day we heard a comment from a White House aide that never would have been uttered during the primaries or general election campaign.

During a conference call in preparation for President Obama's trip to Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said "the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he was able to -- or before he's been able to visit, really, the heart of the Islamic world -- you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father -- obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago."

Just like valuable connections to the Saudis, American Islamists and the Nation of Islam are a key part of Obama's past.

Barack Hussein Obama is also getting increasingly comfortable with America's Islamist enemies.

For instance, our president now insists that members of the Egyptian Parliament representing the Muslim Brotherhood be at his Cairo speech.

The Muslim Brotherhood, also known as the Ikhwan is the parent group of the Iranian proxy Hamas in Gaza, and like Hamas, they are Islamist and endorse the killing of all Jews not just in Israel but worldwide. They're a radical element not only in Egypt but in Jordan, and I'm sure President Mubarak, not to mention the Israelis are just delighted that Obama is de facto endorsing them as legitimate players.

Obama is also apparently anxious to chum up with one of Iran's other proxies in the Arab world, Hezbollah

What's left of Lebanon's democracy is scheduled for apparent termination on June 7th, when an `election' is being held that will likely toss what's left of the March 14th anti-Syria movement out of office. As you can imagine, the actual election is a sham with the Syrians, their collaborators in government and Hezbollah using the usual tactics to make sure the vote comes out right.

And Obama's response to that? He sent Slo-Joe Biden to Lebanon to assure Syrian ally Michel Suleiman that the massive US military aid we've been giving Lebanon will continue even if Hezbollah is in charge.

In a final clue to let you know where things are going, the current occupant of the White House let the world know that as far as he's concerned, the Mullahs in Iran have the right to nuclear power.

Since there's absolutely no difference between the technology used to produce peaceful energy and the technology used to produce nuclear weapons except how it's applied , Barack Hussein Obama just officially signed on to the concept of a nuclear armed Iran.

This is an amazing display of appeasement that would put even Neville Chamberlain to shame, and it proves that everything Obama ever said about trying to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons was an out and out lie. Obama's Cairo speech ought to be interesting, and I can only hope people are beginning to pay attention to this charlatan as time goes on.

You voted for change, America? Just wait.

you buy the ticket, you take the ride.

and I can only hope people are beginning to pay attention to this charlatan as time goes on.

good luck with that.
the only people paying attention to al-Potus are the people who saw him for what he is long ago. the rest either don't care what is happening, domestically/internationally, or it is the change they longed for. both are as dumb as a sack of hair.
as rednecked as some of us are in okieland, we have it within our capacity to hope that we are wrong when we see certain things. several months ago i sent ff an e-mail painting a very gloomy picture. oh how i wished i was wrong. but the more i see, the more horrified i am that i was correct. or as the baron often asks, what will become of the country formerly known as the united states of america?
no capital letters any more.
al-Potus would want it that way.
