    According to Obama, the United States is one of the biggest Muslim countries.

    "And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."

    "The average claim for the US Muslim population is about six million. The precise figure is difficult to get because it's not included in US census data and many put the figure at much, much less.

    But even if we assume there are six million Muslims in the US, that makes it only the 34th biggest Muslim country in the world - behind Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Nigeria, China, Ethiopia, Algeria, Morocco, Afghanistan, Sudan, Iraq, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Tanzania, Syria, Malaysia, Niger, Senegal, Ghana, Tunisia, Somalia, Guinea, Kenya, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Burkina Faso and Tajikistan."

    I did my own research and came up with the US having the 37th largest Muslim population.

    I don't know what Obama thinks is a one of the largest Muslim populations but being in the mid 30s is hardly one of the biggest.

    It's pretty simple. He's a muslim, and leader of the free world. That makes him the biggest muslim. And since he lives in the US, that makes the US the biggest muslim country. All 57 states. ;)

    "...if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans..."

    WTF is that supposed to mean?

    No matter I guess, by the time King Hussein gets through with us we probably will be a Muslim nation.

    Albeit a financially broke one.
  6. Just like all the rest of the muslim nations - financially, mentally and morally broke.
  7. Good point. Nation of Obama Zombies.

    Just as Obama <b>leaves</b> the country for the second time to continue his world apology tour and express his sincere regret and apologies to anyone who will listen for the <b>American</b> policies he <b>does not love</b>, you write something like this. :D And it's not even the first time today.:D

    I think I know why you spend so much time posting and not trading. Your timing is just , ahem, <i>a little bit off</i>.

    :D :D :D
  10. Aren't we getting a little ahead of ourselves?
