CAIR is a terrorist organization, however Obama is nothing like a promoter of Islam.

It is not wise to push sensible liberals into the camp of CAIR apologists by falsely accusing Obama of promotion of Islam. The fact is that most people make their most important decisions based on whether they like somebody, not the merits of the matter. When people on the fence hear such stuff, it makes it difficult for them to evaluate information objectively.
Obama, during his early campaign, stated that he would ignore Pakistan's sovereignty and send troops in when GW Bush was kowtowing to Musharraf. He has said other things in unguarded moments that show that as a Christian, Obama is definitely not pro-Islam. Obama's so-called ties to Islam are purely from childhood necessity. He is, under Islam, a Murtadd, (apostate) since he was born from a muslim father. That means he is eligible for execution by muslims, although some in Islam would say that since it was childhood only that Obama should be imprisoned and given the choice to renounce Christianity or die. Obama having a death sentence on his head for being a Christian is not exactly going to make him more friendly.
But, just like GW Bush, (who protected the top imam of radical terrorist islam from the FBI right after 9-11) politics forces certain language on presidents. You will find similar public statements soft on Islam from Generals MacChrystal, Petraeus, and others.
The way to fight this is to get hard, objective evidence in front of the public. This is what the Gaubatzes have done. Support that, and be very careful about tying the fight against Islam with political slanders that only narrow our base of support. We need everyone that can be brought into this fight. We do not need to make enemies by being stupid.
