Of course: US Muslims support Obama

Well, this was completely predictable. A large majority of American Muslims supports Barack Hussein Obama.
A majority of US Muslims are content with the nation's direction in contrast to many Americans and few Muslims believe there is support for Islamic extremism here, a survey released on Tuesday found.

With the 10th anniversary of the al-Qaida attacks on New York and the Pentagon approaching, the Pew Research Center found that most Muslims felt ordinary Americans were friendly or neutral toward them.

In contrast to the majority of the general public dissatisfied with the nation's direction, 56 percent of the estimated 2.75 million American Muslims said they are satisfied, the survey showed. Seven out of 10 view President Barack Obama's tenure favorably.

"On a variety of measures, Muslims in America are very content with their own lives and with the communities where they live," Pew researcher Greg Smith said in an interview.

Four out of five Muslim Americans surveyed were satisfied with the way things are going in their lives and rated their communities very positively as places to live.

"We've seen Muslims move in a different direction than the rest of the country (with more) believing America is going in the right direction," Smith said.
'Islamophobia,' you ask? Even most Muslims admit there's no such thing.
Since 2007, there has been little change in how Muslim Americans see how they are viewed by the rest of America, with 28 percent saying other Americans viewed them suspiciously and 22 percent saying they had been called offensive names. Only 6 percent said they had been threatened or attacked, while 38 percent were bothered by their sense that they were singled out for increased government surveillance.

In response to questions about being a Muslim in the United States since the September 11 attacks, 55 percent said it is more difficult while 37 percent saw no change.

Two-thirds of those survey said the quality of life for Muslims in the United States is better than in most Muslim countries.

In 2007 only one-quarter of Muslim Americans believed the US-led war on terrorism was sincere, while 43 percent surveyed this year believed the effort was sincere.
And a couple of other things that might be of interest:
The general level of satisfaction among American Muslims was reflected in the 76 percent who approved of Obama's performance as president - nine out of 10 said they voted for the Democrat in 2008. Muslim support for Obama contrasts with unfavorable views of his Republican predecessor, George W. Bush.

There are an estimated 1.8 million Muslim adults in the United States, including US-born converts, a 300,000 increase since 2007. Two-thirds were born in other countries.
Hmmm. Obama's even lost support among Muslims, and you can bet he's never going to pass any immigration reform.

Read the whole thing.

This is all one article? If yes, then which is it? Maybe kids make the difference? If that's it, then it's 1 mil kids? About 2 kids per pair?

"...the estimated 2.75 million American Muslims..."

or

"There are an estimated 1.8 million Muslim adults in the United States, including US-born converts, a 300,000 increase since 2007. Two-thirds were born in other countries."

I always wondered, once I looked it up. Why did he say Barack was swahili? His first two names, not just the second, are Arabic, and his surname is that of a muslim clan in Kenya. Why did he bother to deny it? Why didn't anyone else notice? Or was he just that flippant, that he didn't even know?

The numbers of American Muslims is higher than mentioned. Conversions are high too, more than any other religion.

Well, this was completely predictable. A large majority of American Muslims supports Barack Hussein Obama.

So do American Jews. The implication here that they support him because of his "Hussein" name is riduculous. It's insulting their intelligence.

Job Cohen had the support of Dutch Muslims, and his middle name isn't "Hussein".

'Islamophobia,' you ask? Even most Muslims admit there's no such thing.

That is not true. American Muslims did NOT say that Islamophobia doesn't exist. The poll said that they are happy with their lot and that their COLLEAGUES AND PEOPLE THEY COME INTO CONTACT with regard them favourably.

Don't take two and two and make five. The two issues are unrelated.

Since most American Muslims are wealthier than the average American, all this means is they don't come into contact with the underclass of American socieity, where all the bigotry, and Islamophobia is. The Robert Spencer and Pamella Geller fans, are from the Bible belt areas. The Tea party, crowd, who are the Bible Belt, and comprise the Evangelical underclass are the most ignorant and low income people in the USA.

Islamophobia exists! Just ask CAIR and the OIC. Look at the CAP report on the Islamophobia industry. There is a concerted effort by the Isamophobia industry in the USA, with it's alliances to dubious agenda's that want American Muslims not to have political power.
