'In a radio interview today, Mike Huckabee claimed that President Obama "has a different worldview and I think it is, in part, molded out of a very different experience. Most of us grew up going to Boy Scout meetings and, you know, our communities were filled with Rotary Clubs, not madrassas. And I just do think that there is - again, I am not saying he's not a citizen, I've never said that, I've said the opposite. I've never said he's a Muslim." '
A reminder: the Arabic word "madrasa" means school. I know that Huckabee is referring to the religious madrasas that have been funded by US ally Saudi Arabia, and unfortunately the word "madrasa" has become synonymous with those Wahhabi-influenced schools. But it's interesting that Huckabee himself graduated from a religious school, a Christian "madrasa" in Arkansas: "He graduated magna cum laude from Ouachita Baptist University, completing his bachelor's degree in Religion in 2½ years before attending Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas."
