I guess his relatives don't watch the news

One easy way to get a person on the left to instantly go apesh** is to suggest that Barack Obama may have some Islamic influence in his background. His supporters have even created a website to fight this "smear."

Shoot, I don't know if Obama was ever a Muslim, but it is pretty interesting watching his cultish followers over here swear up and down that he has nothing to do with Islam, but his half-brother who lives in Kenya was recently quoted by the Jerusalem Post, and I guess Malik didn't get the memo:
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. (emphasis mine)
Apparently, Obama's relatives in Kenya just take it for granted that he was/is a Muslim. So which is it? Once again, you get the feeling that we are not being given the straight story by the Obama campaign.

By the way, I tried to link that article from the Jerusalem Post's website, but it has been removed from their website. A Google search will bring you to links in their results, but on the JP's site, the article has been removed. Luckily, a lot of other blogs posted the accompanying photograph that has Malik showing off a photo from the 1980s showing him and Barack in native garb.

Good Day to You, Sir

WOW..I just posted on the exact same topic at 7:55 this morning. We even used the same sentence to describe Malik releasing the information. Great minds think alike.

So, the half brother lives in Kenya, Obama never lived in Kenya.
Remind me again who would know best about Obama's religious beliefs?
