Recently it was reported by a number of news sources that President Obama recently admitted in private, to Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, that he is a Muslim. It immediately brought back to the forefront of my mind memories of him telling ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in a 2008 interview that then-presidential candidate John McCain hadn’t talked about his “Muslim faith”, seconds after which Stephanopoulos reminded Obama that he was a Christian and Obama attempted a recovery that fell flat from my perspective. Why? Because, no matter how many times I watched the video, I couldn’t get past how easily the words “my Muslim faith” rolled out of then-Senator Obama’s lips coupled with the fact it wasn’t the first time Obama had given indications that he might be a Muslim.

His threatening statement, which represents a major departure from previous U.S. foreign policy, was designed to coerce Israel into Obama’s vision for Middle East peace.
