I want to see what those same people who discredit the reports of his ethnicity and defend Obama will do when a real Arab Muslim actually runs for higher office.

As much as I'd like to voice my opinion, I sincerely doubt that it counts as I am not American and therefor can't vote.

And then there's the fact that most American WASPS (white anglo-saxon protestants) as well as other groups who's votes count (and do bother to vote) tend to hate Arabs, Muslims and immigrants in general.

And lets not forget that the Fox network had nothing better to attack him with during their year long smear campaign.....

There's a long list of What Ifs and this is just one. I'm just glad to see positive reaction towards that comment on the media.

Ansam said...

May be they can learn a lesson or two from Indians .. no matter how divided India is Last President was a Muslim , current Prime Minister is a Sikh,

its a non issue actually..

Thanks for posting this video! It's still sad to see that no one really discussed the problem with the Muslim/Arab smearing campaign until the end. But that's the way the country works. If you open your mouth and defend those "terrorist" people, then guess what? You just joined them and revoked your citizenship ;)

Ansam said...

Grey-
It shouldnt be an issue!!

BraceletSeeds-
glad you liked the video :-)

Uh you guys - wait a minute. Guess what? We have Muslims in office in many places in the USA. They are mayors, they are in our congress - this isn't new.

Obama being black was far more divisive than Obama being Muslim.

Getting elected as a Muslim won't be any harder than Kennedy getting elected as a Catholic. People were foaming at the mouth, saying he would take orders from the Pope.

Politics can make fools of all of us. We get so irrational when our prejudices get involved.
