I'm sorry but you are simply misguided and ignorant of the truth. First of all, the burial of Bin Laden in traditional Muslim fashion was NOT a nod
to Islam at all, rather it was a well thought out and strategic move. First of all the burial at sea was a preventative measure, as you cannot bury
such a person in a place that would allow pilgrimage, which would further serve the doctrine of those wishing to harm America. It would become a
shrine. And not giving him a Muslim burial simply would have created more terrorists, as it would have made the West seem insensitive to Islam in
general, when for the most part Islam and terrorism are two separate ideals. I'm not going to argue the tenets of Islam, but suffice it to say that
the purpose of burying him in this fashion serves the above purposes, as well as places America on the moral high ground. It shows that even after
what Bin Laden did to harm America, America still has values and respects the religion of others. Now we could argue that this is not true, some type
of publicity ploy or whatever, but that was part of the motive.
It had nothing to do with Obama being Muslim, and to say as much is just ridiculous. Obama's comments about Christianity should be evidence enough,
if you knew anything about Islam, to prove that he is not in fact Muslim. He would never say such things if he was a Muslim, period. It would be one
of the gravest transgressions a Muslim could perpetrate. And what if he was Muslim? What difference would it make? Oh, you think that means he is a
terrorist or supports terrorism? But of course you ignore the fact that he has bombed more Muslims than just about anyone else on the planet. But he
is Muslim, sure. It is laughable really. And the iconography comments you made are not even worthy of comment.
