During an interview on French TV, our own President, Barak Hussein Obama, insisted that the United States of America should be considered a “Muslim country.”
Obama claimed that because our large, populous country has millions of citizens who identify as Muslim, then that makes the USA “one of the biggest Muslim nations” in the world.
What the heck is this man talking about? There is nothing about the USA that is even remotely like Islam. We are about freedom. Islam is about oppression.
JerusealemOnine does a fair job poking holes in Obama’s loose, absurd claim that the US is a “Muslim nation.”
In reality the US has one of the smallest percentages of Muslims of any Western country. The number of Muslims in the US is approximately 4.5 million, 1.5% of the population, one of the smallest minorities in the US. Since there are approximately 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, the number of Muslims in the US is approximately 0.3% of the world Muslim population. By comparison there are between approximately 6 million Jews in the US, who account for approximately a third of the world’s Jewish population. Whereas many Americans regard it as a society based on “Judeo-Christian values”, it is doubtful if there is one sane American who would define it as a Jewish country.
By President Obama’s yardstick, France, Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy and Holland should all be regarded as “Muslim nations”. In France, which has the biggest Muslim population in Europe, its 4.5 – 5 million Muslims account for 7.5% of the population. In most other Western European countries, Muslims account for approximately 3%-5% of the population.
Besides, I thought leftists like Obama wanted separation of church and state? What happened to that whole thing?
