For some reason, my comment #29 below is still sitting in moderation at Michelle Malkin’s site, but my comment #33 was released from moderation. I’m creating this post on my blog to provide the content of both comments.

From one of the articles linked in this post:
CIA-led drone attack kills terror leader Anwar al-Awlaki and Al Qaeda magazine editor Samir Khan in Yemen, in a strike that used two Predator drones and Hellfire missiles.
Fact #1: These two, and many of the other Jihadists who have killed Americans both abroad and here on U.S. soil (think Nidal Malik Hasan), are Muslims.
Fact #2: Not all Muslims are Jihadists, but all Jihadists are Muslims.
Fact #3: A single honest recitation of the Shahada in Arabic is all that is required for a person to become a Muslim. A conversion to Islam is meant to be a one-way process, both for the individual and their descendants.
Fact #4: The TLC show discussed in this HotAir post shows an American Catholic male converting to Islam, by repeating the Shahada, so that he will be allowed to marry a Muslim female. All that is required for his proof of conversion is his recitation of the Shahada in Arabic.
Fact #5: The Muslim Call to Prayer (the Adhan) begins with repetition of the Shahada in Arabic.
Fact #6: As of the time of this comment, not a single one of the 200+ comments on that HotAir thread mentioned the fact that the current resident of the White House has publicly recited the Shahada in Arabic.
Yes, Barack Hussein Obama took Shahada

Fact #7: Regardless of whether he believes it or not, he said it.
And he knows what that means to the Muslim world. He grew up in the world’s most populous Muslim nation (Indonesia). He attended Koran study classes there. He knows what the Shahada means, and that the Muslim world interprets his recitation of the Shahada as an indication that he is a Muslim. They write off his English professions of “I am a Christian” as Taqiyya. They know that he would not have been elected 7 years after 9/11/2001 if he had openly confessed to being a Muslim.
His recitation of the Shahada in Arabic is all the Muslim world needs to know to believe that he is a Muslim.
And the fact that he now occupies the White House brings even more seriousness to the Indonesian title of his book:
An American Expat in Southeast Asia says:
The words “menerjang” (assault or attack) and “harapan” (hope or expectation) make sense when used separately, but used together, the term “menerjang harapan” makes no sense in Indonesian. But while the term makes no sense, it does however present a mental picture to the native Indonesian speaker, the imagery of a “hopeful assault” a “struggle for victory” or to put it more bluntly, a “jihad”, or as the Indonesians see it, Obama’s “jihad” for the Whitehouse. For the native Indonesian speaker, this figurative language creates a mental image whereas the translation of the book’s title can actually come to mean…
“Jihad: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse”.
