Roadracer, there is approximately 0% chance that a child born to a Muslim father is not considered Muslim by birth in the Islamic world. This may be why we’ve never seen his real birth certificate. There is also approximately 0% chance that a child being raised by a Muslim Stepfather is not going to be raised as a Muslim. This may be why his life in Indonesia is a blank slate with not much more known than he lived there. ‘Bams may have gotten some nominal Christian exposure when he went to live with his grandparents in Hawaii, and then smart enough to keep the Muslim part of him underground being he wanted a political career, but even if he doesn’t believe he is a full fledged Muslim his roots have blinded him to the threat that Islam represents to the world. Maybe his Muslim relatives were peaceful people far removed from jihadi beliefs, and that’s all he can see.
