Obama campaign hires a new liaison

An interesting read at Ben Smith's Blog.
Obama's campaign has created a Muslim liaison, according to two sources familiar with the move.

The sources said the job was likely to be filled by Haim Nawas, a Jordanian-American who filled a similar role for the campaign of General Wesley Clark in 2004.

The job is complicated by the fact that Obama has been forced repeatedly to deny that he is Muslim, a situation that grates on some Muslim-Americans.

I marvel that Muslims need special treatment, special representation. When will the Roman Catholic, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Uniting, Adventist, Mormon, etcetera liaisons be hired?

Aren't the rules if you are born a Muslim you can not un-become one, if you do the penalty is death?
