Americans who don't know their leader!

Maybe then Obama is a Muslim, after all. Or even correctly, Americans do not know as much about the man they elected to end a war in Afghanistan, Iraq and continue the 'war on terrorism'.

Sample this. A new opinion poll published today in the USA has shown that many Americans are increasingly getting convinced that Obama is a Muslim, while another rapidly growing number are thoroughly confused about his religion.

According to the poll by the non-partisan Pew Research Centre and its affiliated Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, 18 percent, said they think Obama is Muslim.

The largest share of people, 43 percent, said they don't know his religion, an increase from the 34 percent who said that in early 2009, the poll said.

And by the way, the poll was conducted before the controversy over whether Muslims should be permitted to construct a mosque near Ground Zero. That may then mean the number of those who believe he is a Muslim may have risen.

Maybe his background is not helping matters. Barack Hussein Obama is the son of a Kenyan Muslim father and a Kansas mother. The young Obama grew up in predominantly Muslim Indonesia.

So you think he is Muslim?
