Skip to comments.Hillary's team has questions about Obama's Muslim background
Posted on 01/18/2007 2:42:00 PM PST by hope
Are the American people ready for an elected president who was educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage?
This is the question Sen. Hillary Rodham Clintons camp is asking about Sen. Barack Obama.
An investigation of Mr. Obama by political opponents within the Democratic Party has discovered that Mr. Obama was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia. Sources close to the background check, which has not yet been released, said Mr. Obama, 45, spent at least four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia.

IF Hilary gets into this it will be very interesting. I am beginning to think Hilary is going to lose.
I don't think this is new news, but it looks like Hitlery is starting to circle for the kill.
Txflake's team has questions about Hillary's Red Chinese Ancestry, Affiliation and Sympathies.
Cynical me is wondering if this is really hitlery or osamaObama's preemptive strike.
NOW we see the claws come out against Islam.
Where's Hillary's spirit of diversity gone to? /sarc
Oh my, Teddy was right, there is a relationship between Obama and Osama.
Hmmm. So Americans are ready to elect a madrassa-raised Muslim to the presidency, but not a Christian from Massachusetts just because he's a Mormon? Somehow, I don't think so.
I'm surprised Obama is 45. From his looks, I guessed he was in his early 30s.
If Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is elected President, he will convert (back) to Islam within his two years in office. America cannot take this chance. There is no greater theat to the Republic than this charlatan.
LOL. The fight has not even started and she is already playing the Muslim card, which will be adamantly denied, possibly in this fashion:
"No one on my team is questioning Mr. Obama's loyalty. The fact that he is a Muslim, raised in a Madrassa should not even be mentioned. I think it is deplorable that you would even ask that because he is a MUSLIM raised in MADRASSA, if he should even be elected.
I want to assure the American people that it is up to them to decide if they want a MUSLIM for President, one educated in a MADRASSA
I for one will not even mention this in my campaign.
Well...being educated in a madrassa in indonesia is probably not as bad as being educated in a madrassa in the U.S. But just the same, we don't need madrassa-trained people in government.
I forgot just how much damage is done to candidates during the primaries. ;)
Mrs. Clinton, who is Methodist, "has very fond childhood memories" of the second husband of her grandmother, Max Rosenberg, a Russian-born Jew, said Howard Wolfson, a spokesman for the first lady's Senate exploratory committee.So, can we turn this into a Jew vs. Muslim fight? < /sarc>
Wolfson said Thursday that he doesn't "expect it will have an electoral impact, and we don't see it in that context."
Mrs. Clinton's maternal grandmother, Della, married Rosenberg in 1933, seven years after she and Mrs. Clinton's grandfather, Edwin Howell, divorced, according to a weekly Jewish newspaper, The Forward.
They had filed a petition for Max to adopt Della's children, including Mrs. Clinton's mother, Dorothy, but the attempt failed. Max Rosenberg died in Los Angeles in 1984.
I honestly had no idea Obama had any muslim roots at all.
As far as I am concerned, that is LITERALLY worse than having Nazi roots.
