Obama's speech in Cairo: apparently it’s about pandering to Islam now.
“I am also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people, and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: assalaamu alaykum.” Here we go.
“Moreover, the sweeping change brought by modernity and globalisation led many Muslims to view the west as hostile to the traditions of Islam.” Because so many of their people are living amongst the rubble of war & in caves. They will not stop warring w/ each other long enough to make progress.
“Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” And they cut the heads off Jews & Christians. What about gender equality? Or do their women like wearing body-blankets in the dessert?
“when the first Muslim-American was recently elected to Congress, took the oath to defend our constitution using the same Holy Koran” He should have used the Bible, as is our historic tradition. Oh forgot, they want us to warm to Sharia Law under the banner of inclusion.
“Much has been made of the fact that an African-American with the name Barack Hussein Obama could be elected president.” Oops! Should he have said that? I thought nobody was allowed to even know his middle name.
“that includes nearly 7 million American Muslims in our country today…” Highly debatable.
“Iraq was a war of choice…” Dumb a$#. I'm sorry; apologizing for America's heroism --by OUR OWN PRESIDENT-- just makes me really angry.
“That is why I ordered the removal of our combat brigades by next August. That is why we will honour our agreement with Iraq's democratically elected government to remove combat troops from Iraqi cities by July, and to remove all our troops from Iraq by 2012.” Great. You wanna show 'em the battle plans, too?
“But we will support a secure and united Iraq as a partner, and never as a patron.” Why should we NOT seek some form of payment – we freed their country…
“For centuries, black people in America suffered the lash of the whip as slaves and the humiliation of segregation.” For CENTURIES? Really. Centuries? We haven’t even been a country but for 233 years.
“rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious obligation. That is why I am committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfil zakat.” So, let’s change tax laws to accommodate Muslim law – sounds like Sharia Law to me!!
“That is why the US government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab,” Again… The naive, duped Obama voter says, “Sharia Law? It’ll never happen here…” as she puts on her hijab.
Sublime to ridiculous?
