Did B. Hussein Obama borrow the idea that ‘America is a Muslim Country’ from Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison?

It wouldn’t surprise me a bit. From Jihad Watch:
So where did Obama get this crazy idea?
Maybe from Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN). This morning Melanie Phillips sent me this: "Has America Become an Islamic Country?," by Saad El Deen Ibrahim, a translation by Asmaa Sharaf El Deen of an article from Egypt’s Al-Masry al-Youm for Watching America, May 9. It contains an account of a speech Ellison gave at the annual congress of the Center for the Study of Islam & Democracy (CSID) on May 5. It says that Ellison says this:
All this talk about America’s relationships with the Islamic world undeniably indicates how America will become a part of the Islamic world. This is especially evident now, when the number of American Muslims exceeds six million. This is more than the entire population of the 11 countries which are members of the organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), the same organization which must call America to join (and here, the hall was swept by thunderous applause).
