Accepting for the moment that this continuing delusion that he's Muslim might actually have a basis in fact... (it doesn't, but let's pretend.)
Why does it matter?
Muslim? Jew? Catholic? Buddhist? Pagan? Hindu? Animist? None of the above? All of the above on alternating full moons?
Why does it matter so much to some of you?
This is just about the most idiotic clap trap I've ever heard about Obama in the eight years he's been in office. In case y'all missed it, he was a member in good standing of a rather Separatist Christian Church run by some idiot named Wright...not exactly Muslim. Hello?

...And, as has been said in innumerable posts in many threads since last months elections, the national totals mean absolutely
It's the totals within each state that matter. Only that, and nothing more.

It still wouldn't explain how they got those other 14 nations to vote for it. Looking at the list of nations who voted I would be impressed if someone could get them to agree the sky is blue. I'm wondering what was in it for them, Obama is on his way out and Israel has more influence and power than Palestine.
I don't buy they all did it for humanitarian reasons, so there has to be another powerful group pushing this. Oil rich Arab nations I guess but i still wouldn't think they would have that much influence to get countries to risk angering both Israel and the incoming US administration. Something doesn't add up, maybe they are all so used to passing it off and relying on the US veto they didn't know what to do when it didn't happen or didn't expect it to actually happen.

I voted for Obama 2012, and I voted for Trump. I don't have Islamophobia. However there is overwhelming evidence that Obama is a Muslim. And this latest incident proves it. Think about it
1. Ten U.S. sailors were kidnapped on January 12, 2016 after accidentally straying into Iranian waters
THAT WAS A ACT OF WAR.
I want to express my gratitude to Iranian authorities for their cooperation in swiftly resolving this matter,” Kerry said in a short statement.
He added that he was particularly attuned to the situation reminding the nation that he was “a former sailor myself” and understood the importance of Naval power.
Kerry signaled that the incident was not a sign of provocation, but rather a symbol of how the two countries could work together after Iranian nuclear deal.
“That this issue was resolved peacefully and efficiently is a testament to the critical role diplomacy plays in keeping our country safe, secure, and strong,” he said.
HMMM SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT BEING HELD AT GUNPOINT IS NOT A SIGN OF PROVOCATION? SEEMS MORE LIKE WEAKNESS TO ME NOT STRENGTH.
Obama, Aug. 20, 2012: I have, at this point, not ordered military engagement in the situation. But the point that you made about chemical and biological weapons is critical. That’s an issue that doesn’t just concern Syria; it concerns our close allies in the region, including Israel. It concerns us. We cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people. We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus. That would change my equation. … We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that’s a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons. That would change my calculations significantly.
They used Chemical Weapons. THAT WAS A ACT OF WAR.
In response to the 14-0 vote by the UN Security Council to condemn all Israeli building and activity in the West Bank as “illegal,” including building in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem and Israel’s sovereign access to the Western Wall, the Prime Minister’s Office in Israel has issued the following statement, strongly denouncing both the resolution and the Obama Administration, which broke decades of diplomatic precedent by abstaining, thus allowing the resolution to pass. Israel accuses the Obama Administration of having in fact “colluded” behind the scenes to produce both the vote and the resolution itself: “Israel rejects this shameful anti-Israel resolution at the UN and will not abide by its terms. At a time when the Security Council does nothing to stop the slaughter of half a million people in Syria, it disgracefully gangs up on the one true democracy in the Middle East, Israel, and calls the Western Wall “occupied territory.” The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes. Israel looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and with all our friends in Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, to negate the harmful effects of this absurd resolution.”
If Obama is not a Muslim why is he is so willing to make a deal with Iran but tells Israel to go uck itself?
BUT Trump accepting a call from Taiwan is bad and breaks years of the one china policy agreement.
