In a poem-like post entitled, I am not an American, Scoble outlines many political positions and contrasts them with the words, “I am not American’. This is for dramatic effect — he has not actually changed his nationality. In the post he reveals that his mother is German and that he converted to Islam so that he could get married to Ghaemmaghami.
When I married I married a Muslim woman. I’m not an American.
Even worse, I converted to Islam so that we could be married in an Islamic ceremony. I’m not an American.
