[Responding to the question of rather or not The Anti-Christ must be of European origin, eliminating Obama from the pool of candidates.]
I don't think the A/C has to be of European origin. I'm not sure of the verse, but I believe in the Bible it says that he will be of the people who destroyed the Temple. Most people think Roman, and assume European origin.
But if you think about it, the Roman army often drafted soldiers from the local populations. So if the legion that destroyed the temple was made of locals, they probably would have been Arabic racially, because local Jews would not have ransacked their own Temple. Am I correct in thinking that?
And it's interesting to consider that Barack Obama is about 40% Arabic on his father's side. I'm not saying that he is the A/C, but I think its a little hasty and even irresponsible to say that he is definitely not.
We should just trust in God, and wait and keep our eyes peeled.
