Question of the Day:

Quotations by Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi in June of 2008:

"There are elections in America now. Along came a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia. His name is Obama.
"All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man," continued Gadhafi. "They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency.
"We are hoping that this black man will take pride in his African and Islamic identity, and in his faith, and that [he will know] that he has rights in America, and that he will change America from evil to good, and that America will establish relations that will serve it well with other peoples, especially the Arabs," Gadhafi said.

My Question is this: "If leaving the Muslim faith is looked on as being so bad that the penalty is death, why are Middle Eastern leaders such as Gadhafi praising and praying for this EX-muslim? Do they believe he WAS a muslim? Do they believe he still IS a muslim? And, most importantly, WHY do they believe this?"
