Muslim symbolThough President Obama is accepting accolades for ordering the killing of Osama bin Laden, a bestselling author and critic of Islam doesn't think that dispels his perceived favor toward Islam.


Just days following the death of Osama bin Laden, President Barack Obama placed a wreath at the outdoor memorial where the World Trade Center once stood, before meeting privately with about 60 relatives of those killed on September 11, 2001.


On the way to ground zero, the president visited firefighters and police officers who responded to the terror attacks. And without mentioning bin Laden by name, Obama told the firefighters that he hopes the military's success brings them "some comfort." He also thanked them for their daily work and told them their president has "got your back."

But many critics think Obama is trying to use bin Laden's demise as a way to prop up his credibility in the foreign policy arena.

Robert Spencer"He's certainly going to try," notes Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer. "He's already taken credit for it, even though a series of revelations [has] come out now that indicates that he was quite reluctant to do it and that it was other people on his team, notably Leon Panetta, who were ultimately responsible for it. Nonetheless, he's been taking credit for it and [will] continue to do so."

And the critic of Islam says Obama's decision to take down bin Laden does not erase the perception that he favors Islam. "It doesn't change the fact that all his foreign policy has been oriented in the direction of Islamic supremacism, allowing for this kind of advance of Islamic law and Islamic prerogatives," Spencer contends.

However, he points out that though Obama may have Islamic leanings, that does not mean he favors terrorism, as he may oppose it as a matter of principle.
