Editor's Note: In this fourth of a five-part series, Middle East and Islam specialist Daniel Pipes focuses on perceptions that Barack Obama is a Muslim, first by those close to him, then by Muslims and finally by the American public.
A new biography that traces Barack Obama's path from birth _ yes, in Hawaii _ to Harvard Law School, sketches the pragmatism and politics of the future president's early choices, including his first connections to Jeremiah Wright, the inflammatory preacher whom Obama severed ties with during the 2008 presidential campaign.
Every candidate for the presidency in 2012 claims to be a follower of Jesus Christ. As an evangelical, I give people the benefit of the doubt whenever they so self-describe. However, as a voter, I'm obliged to scrutinize such claims more carefully. This isn't because I will only vote for a fellow Christian.
