Who Is a Muslim?By HUSSEIN IBISH
...Who and what is a “Muslim”?
...Would the definition of a Muslim be based on family heritage, personal beliefs or both? How would that be codified in practice?
...My own case is instructive. I am a citizen of the United States but born in a Muslim-majority country (Lebanon), and, on my father’s side, into a clearly Muslim family. Moreover, my first name, Hussein, is one of a few in Arabic that is practically exclusive to Muslims (Arab Christians and Jews are not given this name).
Barack Hussein Obama then is a Muslim, a la Ibish?
