    Obama and his first class Arabic accent disagree.

    "Here is Obama reciting the Shahada in public on the record.

    Barack Hussein Obama said the Muslim call to prayer is "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth."

    In an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in The New York Times, Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent."

    The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:

    "Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
    Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
    I witness that there is no god but Allah
    I witness that there is no god but Allah
    I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... "

    According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim's complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam."

    So because he thinks a prayer is pleasing in an auditory way, this makes him a muslim.

    Yeah, um, no.

    It's doubtful he would recite a prayer which Muslims consider a statement of faith, given his intimate understanding of Islam, if he didn't mean it as a statement of faith.

    Unless you think he's retarded?

    It is doubtful he would *poof* be a muslim just because he said some words.

    Religion is a bit more than performing the equivalent of saying "candyman" three times while looking into a mirror.

    I didn't say he'd become a Muslim by reciting the words. I said it's unlikely he'd recite a statement of faith if he wasn't, given his understanding of the faith.

    Two things about Obama you obviously don't understand...#1, he's a liar, you can't believe anything he says about anything, so everything he says is up for debate.
    #2, he assumes everyone else is too stupid to figure it out.

    And that is just as retarded.

    I just recited it. Does that mean I was really a muslim and the prayer has brought it out of me?

    No, you idiot. I DIDN'T SAY IT MAKES YOU MUSLIM. I said the Muslims view the recitation as a STATEMENT OF FAITH. It's unlikely that anyone with a Muslim background would forget that, or fail to understand what it means to Muslims who hear him recite it.

    I didn't say that it made me a muslim. I said that it brought out my inner muslim.

    Learn to read for comprehension before you start calling someone an idiot.

    I just said it again. My inner muslim must be in some serious turmoil.

    Comprehension is my strong suit.
    "It is doubtful he would *poof* be a muslim just because he said some words."

    I re-iterate, I never said anyone would become muslim by saying the words.

    Nice diversion though.

    So do you think Obama is so stupid he somehow forgot that Muslims view the recitation as a statement of faith?

    Or do you think he deliberately lied to the Muslim world?
