CNS Won't Concede Obama Is A Christian

An Oct. 6 article by Julie Stahl -- which seems to have disappeared from the CNS site; a copy is here -- refuses to state as fact that Barack Obama is a Christian.

In claiming that "many" Israelis "have apparently been dissuaded by various fears about Obama among the concerns "some analysts" cited "are the fact that Obama’s middle name is 'Hussein,' which some say indicate he is a Muslim, although he says he is a Christian." In fact, Obama doesn't just "say" he's a Christian; he is one, and Stahl offers no evidence to the contrary -- Obama's middle name is irrelevant to the question. Stahl also fails to name any of the "some" are who "say" this about Obama.

Stahl doesn't even bother to back up her base claim, that "many" Israelis "have apparently been dissuaded by various fears about Obama."

Stahl further listed among these alleged concerns Obama's "willingness to negotiate without preconditions with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad [sic], who openly calls for the destruction of Israel." In fact, Obama never said he would "negotiate" with Ahmadinejad; he said that he would meet with Iranian leaders and that such a meeting "could include" Ahmadinejad.
