Obama Touts Middle Name to Muslims In Michigan?
Dearborn, Michigan has the largest Muslim population of any other US city. In May of this year, Hamtramck High School in Dearborn held a girl only prom so that Muslim girls could attend. Muslim girls and boys are not allowed to socialized and dance together at the same events, so catering to Islamic religious requests, the school held the prom and no one complained about separation of church and state.
On April 18, 2012, President Barack Obama made a point to stop and speak in Dearborn. When he greeted the crowd, he emphasized his middle name Hussein to the crowd who cheered when he did.It was obvious that he was playing his name to the largely Muslim crowd in Dearborn. He deliberately emphasized his name, common in Muslim circles, in such a way as to tell the crowd that he was one of them.
