In the time which the world is burning with the furry and crimes committed by so called peace loving Muslims in the name of Allah the merciful, the following news from The United State should not be surprising to any one; after all US is the melting pot of the world. It should be a norm for any country when its leaders name is “Barak Hussein Obama.” There are many speculations and questions raised about Obamas religion, whether he is Christian or Muslim? It is a documented fact that Obamas Father was Muslim. These are the facts about any Muslim marrying a none Muslim.
1- Its forbidden to marry a none Muslim, unless He/ She Convert to Islam. (Therefore Obama’s Mother being a Christian is correct to the point that she married his father. From that moment she married him, she was Muslim. Consequently Barak Hussein Obama is Muslim. And this is not a theory it is a fact.

(CNSNews.com) – At a time of dramatic change in the Arab world, senior figures from more than 30 Arab and other Muslim-majority countries will be in Washington, D.C., this week for the annual U.S.-Islamic World Forum, the first to be held in the United States.
For the second consecutive year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will play a prominent role at the forum. On Tuesday evening, she will be the guest speaker at the highlight of the three-day event, an invitation-only gala dinner.
Earlier in the day, the forum will be opened by Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the Turk who heads the Saudi-based bloc of 56 Islamic states. An OIC statement said Ihsanoglu would use the occasion to review relations between the U.S. and the Islamic world.
Jointly organized by the Brookings Institutions Saban Center for Middle East Policy and Qatar’s foreign ministry, the event is the eighth U.S.-Islamic World Forum. All seven previous ones have been held in the Qatari capital, Doha.
“This year’s discussions will focus on the rapid, turbulent change in the Middle East and implications for Muslims around the world,” the organizers said in a statement.
The forums bring together scholars, business leaders, analysts, journalists, religious figures and officials from the U.S. and numerous Islamic countries, this year including Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indonesia and Sudan.
Clinton’s participation last year was the first time a senior member of a U.S. administration had taken part. It was at that Feb. 2010 event that President Obama, in a video message to the forum, named Rashad Hussain, a former White House deputy associate counsel, as special envoy to the OIC – an appointment marked by some controversy.
Earlier forums drew former administration members, including former secretary of state Madeline Albright, a regular.
President Clinton took part in the inaugural event, in 2004, as did Yusuf Qaradawi, an influential Egyptian Sunni scholar who is regarded as the spiritual guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, and has drawn criticism for having called Palestinian suicide bombings against Israelis justifiable “martyrdom operations.”
Other noteworthy past attendees include the then commander of U.S. Central Command commander, Admiral William Fallon; Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan, who was denied a visa to the U.S. for years until the Obama administration lifted the ban in early 2010; the late Ambassador Richard Holbrooke; and Feisal Abdul Rauf, the imam whose plan to build a mosque near Ground Zero triggered a storm last year.
A number of U.S. lawmakers including Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) have also taken part.
At the 2008 event, a straw poll on the 2008 presidential candidates handed an overwhelming victory to then Sen. Obama.
Tamara Cofman Wittes, a Brookings senior fellow participating in the forum (now deputy assistant secretary for Near Eastern affairs), observed at the time, “The symbolism of a major American presidential candidate with the middle name of Hussein, who went to elementary school in Indonesia, certainly speaks to Muslims abroad.”
