UPDATE June 18, 10:30 AM PDT: ABC is reporting that Obama’s half brother didn’t say Obama had a Muslim background — and they have the transcript of the interview with Malik Obama to prove it. So the Jerusalem Post story linked below appears to be false.
Barack Obama’s Fight the Smears website says flatly: “Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian.”
Barack Obama’s half brother says that the candidate has a “Muslim background.”
Which one is lying?
This is not a Manchurian candidate issue. This is an honesty issue.
“Malik Obama says his brother will be good president for the Jews,” from the Jerusalem Post, June 12 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Barack Obama’s half brother Malik said Thursday that if elected his brother will be a good president for the Jewish people, despite his Muslim background.
In an interview with Army Radio he expressed a special salutation from the Obamas of Kenya.
