Did Obama insinuate that he's Muslim to Turkish Parliament?

"Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country -- I know, because I am one of them."


What was Obama saying exactly during his speech to the Turkish Parliament? This sounded, to me, as an insinuation towards himself being of Muslim faith, rather than just members of his family? I could be wrong, but I don't remember hearing much of Obamas extensive experience around Muslims? His campaign for President seemed more about distancing himself from this possibility, while assuring people of his Christian faith. Why so pro Muslim all of a sudden? Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Peace.

Everyone on this site know he is. If he is trying to keep it a secret he fails with a capital PH. On the other hand, I don't care what he believes in, as long as he is faithful to the United States and he uses every tool in his power to help the country.

One: It doesn't flippin' matter if he's of the Islamic faith or not. Two: He attended/attends a church which is not of the Islamic faith for 20 plus years.

...and three...



... have lived in a Muslim-majority country..."


He lived in Indonesia for several years as a boy.

He is not saying, in any fashion whatsoever, he is Muslim. He is saying that many Americans have had contact with Islam either from their families, or from contact abroad, and that he's one of them.

Why would it matter if he is, anyway?

any reason huh?
people will use any reason to try and make people hate this man.

George W. Bush: "If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."

Amazing what skin colour can do to a persons point of view, eh?

Technically you are correct, as his father is an admitted Muslim.

I will say however, that for all of the rumors which he [President Obama] is purportedly attempting to quash, he is most certainly doing a fine job of reinforcing them instead.

Gee, my primary language happens to be ENGLISH. So taking his statement at face value, Obama claims he is 'ONE OF THEM', meaning Obama admits he is MUSLIM. Thank you.

Obama is "literally" saying that he is a person with Muslims in his family, i.e. his father's side of the family.

Why did Obama distance himself from Islam during the election? The reason is good politics!!! He knew that many Americans feel negatively towards Muslims and Islam, so he distanced himself from Islam to appeal to as many Americans as he could.

Why did Obama bring up the point of having family ties with Muslims while giving a speech in Turkey? The reason again is good politics!!! When you are trying to win over the trust, friendship, and hearts of a foreign people, you must bring up points that you have in common with those people.

Point blank, Obama is a genius at talking to different types of people is mass.

Obama has Muslims in his family and he's lived in Indonesia which is predominantly Muslim. For someone who appears to be making such an issue that their primary language is ENGLISH, I'm baffled as to why you interpret this as you do. I mean, other than desperation of course.

Yes, and I live in Texas, but that doesn't make me a southern Baptist. I think that ALL he meant is that he has muslim relatives. Nothing more.

Well I believe the tele-prompter may have been Muslim, and President Obama was meerly reading it.... Seriously guys, he was just saying he lived in a predominatly Muslim country, and has Muslim family members. What this likely means is he is far more sympathetic to the Muslim faith then any previous president. Don't forget, it is not the Muslims we are afraid of, it is the Muslim extremeists, or any extremeist for that matter.

Yep. That lovely racist cult in Chicago has enough dirty laundry to keep people busy yakking about it for a very long time.

Obama's Church Not Your Average Christian Church

As for if he 'insinuated that he's muslim' ... he was just talking himself up for his muslim audience. Obama's real religion is PANDER. He chatted himiself up for the muslims there and when he comes back to the USA he'll chat himself up as a Christian in front of a majority Christian audience, or he'll chat himself up as secular in front of a left coast secular audience (remember how he dis'd those who 'clung to guns and religion' while with them??)

He's whatever the audience at the time wants him to be.
He's a politician.

Most of the world believes that Obama was born in Kenya and that he is a Muslim practicing Taqqiyah when he claims to be a christian.

I think whatever is claimed by Obama or is asserted for Obama is of limited interest.

His ideas and his actions are what one should find important and should scrutinise. And it is what he is saying abroad with regard to the USA that is far more important than any statements about himself. His representation of the USA ought to offend every U.S. citizen I know, but I am mystified by the way Obama beguiles an audience with such studied psychological mannerisms of an Ericksonian variety, and U.S. citizens seem incapable of seeing through the hypnotic trance of this 'new pharoah in Egypt'.

I hope the USA will survive the radical political agenda that Obama holds with roots in the corrupt Chicago political machinery. At the moment, when Obama cannot even manage a comment on the Somali pirate situation, I think the outlookd is bleak and the situation dire.
