I’ve had a big problem in this recent election of the ‘whisper’ campaign to paint Barack Obama as a Muslim. Of course, he is not a Muslim, but the fact that trying to paint him as such is seen by some as reducing his appeal as a potential president is what bothers me.
There is nothing wrong with being a Muslim.
There is nothing wrong with being an Arab.
There is no direct link that indicates that every Muslim or every Arab is a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer. Drawing that link is misguided.
And yet, that is the implication that has been made by those trying to destroy the Obama candidacy and support John McCain.
