Barack Obama's "Madrassa" Education

A widely circulated e-mail suggests that U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) attended a fundamentalist Muslim religious school, known as a "madrassa," as a child living in Indonesia, and that his childhood education was steeped in radical Islam.

In fact, from ages 6 through 10, he attended a public school in Indonesia with both Muslim and non-Muslim students.

Sen. Obama is not a Muslim; he is a Christian who attends the United Church of Christ.
