Josh Friedeman, the Millennial Perspective

In a recent interview, President Obama said, 'I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam. And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. And so there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.'

However, Don Surber tells us that the U.S. is not, in fact, 'one of the largest countries in the world' as President Obama says. Here is what he writes:
While President Obama is busy embracing his Muslim identity... (H)e is telling outrageous whoppers about the United States and its Muslim roots.

With an estimated 5 million to 8 million Muslims, obviously he does not mean by percentage; Muslims are less than 3% of the U.S. population.

By sheer number, the United States is far behind Indonesia (213 million), Pakistan (156 million), Bangladesh (127 million) and so on. At least 23 nations have more Muslims.

The USA in fact has less than 1% of the world’s Muslim population of an estimated 1 billion people.
So why would a president make such an outrageous lie?

Because no one will fact check him.
That last line is perhaps the single most scary reality of the Barack Obama Presidency.

In case you are interested, here is a look at the top 50 Muslim countries by percentage"
