Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch updates the “Muslim country” situation. The White House has released the transcript of the interview. The pertinent section is this:
Now, the flip side is 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 [sic] 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.
That’s still not accurate. Spencer thinks Obama may have gotten this idea from Congressman Keith Ellison, himself a Muslim.
