Barack Obama: Muslim Call to Prayer "One of the Prettiest Sounds on Earth"

A little something to go with the Clinton-leaked Obama photo to Drudge.

A year ago, Nicholas Kristoff, in the New York Times blogs, wrote, "“In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’”

Grand Old Partisan states that "Obama recited, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent," the opening lines of this prayer:"

"Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... "

We don't know what it all means--if anything.

It just seems to go with the above photo.

We just thought we'd present it and see if the readers have any thoughts.

* We just discovered that this story got tagged onto the end of an excellent and lengthy post at Atlas Shrugs, "Obama and Islam: The Third Rail in American Politics". There is a ton of meaty info in this post--information that readers likely won't be able to find in the MSM.

* We'll take this opportunity to mention DBKP's "Can a Good Muslim be a Good American?". File it under "Food for thought".
