In which John Green examines the question of whether President Barack Obama is a Muslim in the wake of a recent opinion poll showing that more than one fifth of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim. Along the way, the five pillars of Islam are discussed: belief in the unity of God and the prophethood of Muhammad (shahada), prayer (salat), alms-giving (zakat), fasting (sawm), and pilgrimage (hajj). Thanks to Valerie, Ryan, Sierra, Esther, and Geri for research assistance is compiling this video.

Love this video. And agree with nico :B on how prejudicial people are. Just when you think the world has made progress suddenly something comes up and shows you how pathetically little we've grown as a species.

You either a Muslim or you're not- it's not up to anyone's opinion. People are so stupid. In all honesty, I wish the president was neither a Muslim nor anything else.

And while I'm at it, they should build the freaking mosque near ground zero. It boggles me how prejudicial people are in this day and age.

Thanks for sharing this one. I love the list of other things he's not you inserted near the end.

On a separate note, I wonder if Mr. President (a self-declared nerd) knows what his patronus is?

Henry's hair is as Puffy as ever. :)
Seriously, I doubt he's a muslim, because I've heard a lot about the CHRISTIAN, church he attended for years, and was married in.

Yes the puff is gone...no i don't think its bad at all. it looks like John may have gotten a new hair jail. The only thing "muslim" about Barak Obama is his name...but then again his name isnt really all that muslim either. try again Fox News....
