from the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/12/opinion/12luttwak.html
"As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant. "
That is not from a fringe conspiracy theorist, that is the New York Times talking.
Check out this amazing article from the Israel Today newspaper which says that Obama told the Egyptian foreign minister that Obama is in fact a Muslim. http://www.israeltoday.co.il/default.aspx?tabid=128&view=item&idx=2041
Could the Obama Muslim rumor be a smear campaign if the New York Times and Israel Today says it?
