Hilary Ready To Play
The Muslim Card
On Barack Obama

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! (I'm gonna get your Muslim ass, Barack.)

Barack Obama was born to a Muslim father, who left his mother and he high and dry when little Barack was only two. Obama's mother then married an Indonesian Muslim man, and Obama received his first formal schooling in a Muslim academy.

This makes him a Muslim in the eyes of Islam. And yet, Barack Obama proclaims he is a follower of Jesus Christ. And that makes him an apostate in the eyes of Islam. The punishment for apostasy according to the Koran, and according to Islamic scholars the world over, is death.

One does have to wonder if we will see a fatwa called down on Obama eventually.

All this being said, it is interesting that Hilary Clinton, apparently, is getting ready to play the Muslim card on 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.

“He was a Muslim, but he concealed it,” the source said. “His opponents within the Democrats hope this will become a major issue in the campaign.”…

“The background investigation will provide major ammunition to his opponents,” the source said. “The idea is to show Obama as deceptive.”

In Indonesia, the young Obama was enrolled in a Madrassa and was raised and educated as a Muslim. Although Indonesia is regarded as a moderate Muslim state, the U.S. intelligence community has determined that today most of these schools are financed by the Saudi Arabian government and they teach a Wahhabi doctrine that denies the rights of non-Muslims.

Although the background check has not confirmed that the specific Madrassa Mr. Obama attended was espousing Wahhabism, the sources said his Democratic opponents believe this to be the case—and are seeking to prove it. The sources said the opponents are searching for evidence that Mr. Obama is still a Muslim or has ties to Islam.

I have to wonder if this story is really true. Could Hilary believe she could get away with such creed-oriented mudslinging given our current climate of political correctness?

Well yes, I think she might think she'd be able to do so. After all, she has the liberal credentials which would make any charges of racism slide off her.

We shall see. It should be interesting.
