Thoughts on Obambi's speech in CairoPosted by DarthDilbert at 6/04/2009 11:34:00 PM
I am grateful for your hospitality, and the hospitality of the people of Egypt. 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.Don't forget boys and girls, he isn't a Muslim .
I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect...and the dignity of all human beings.Daniel Pearl, Nicholas Berg, Jack Hensley, Kenneth Bigley, Eugene Armstrong, Jonathon Michael Cote, Mohammed Mutawalli, Maher Kemal, Georgi Lazov, Shosei Koda, Kim Sun-il, Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr., Seif Adnan Kanaan, Piotr Stanczak, and Aasiya Z. Hassan were unavailable for comment.
As the Holy Koran tells us, "[Blah blah blah]."The Koran when not used as a replacement for Charmin two-ply toilet tissue can be found to have numerous descriptions of Mohammed as a pedophile. The Koran also guides its groupies to be engaged in deceit, polygamy, wife-beating suicide bombings, and murder.
That is what I will try to do - to speak the truth as best I can.Have you visited all fifty-seven states yet?
My father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims.How many Christians did they kill?
And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.Once again, Daniel Pearl, Nicholas Berg, Jack Hensley, Kenneth Bigley, Eugene Armstrong, Jonathon Michael Cote, Mohammed Mutawalli, Maher Kemal, Georgi Lazov, Shosei Koda, Kim Sun-il, Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr., Seif Adnan Kanaan, Piotr Stanczak, and Aasiya Z. Hassan were unavailable for comment.
The United States has been one of the greatest sources of progress that the world has ever known."Has been"? Excellent leadership there Barry. Put the pipe down.
Much has been made of the fact that an African-American with the name Barack Hussein Obama could be elected President.Bill Cunningham is patiently awaiting an apology.
The first issue that we have to confront is violent extremism in all of its forms.I agree, let's start with overturning Roe v. Wade.
We reject the same thing that people of all faiths reject: the killing of innocent men, women, and children.And yet you are not only in favor of abortion but the even more barbaric practice of partial birth abortion.
I am aware that some question or justify the events of 9/11. But let us be clear: Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody. And yet Al Qaeda chose to ruthlessly murder these people, claimed credit for the attack, and even now states their determination to kill on a massive scale.Congrats, the truthers will be urinating themselves with delight now. Paging Alex Jones...
Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism - it is an important part of promoting peace.The families of those killed and wounded at the Pentagon, World Trade Center, and aboard Flight 93 would certainly disagree.
9/11 was an enormous trauma to our country. The fear and anger that it provoked was understandable, but in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our ideals.Wonderful, a written invitation for the next terrorist attack.
Six million Jews were killed - more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today. Denying that fact is baseless, ignorant, and hateful.And yet you want to be pals with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Interesting.
On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people - Muslims and Christians - have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation.History lesson for you Barry: the land was given to Israel around four thousand years ago. Get over it.
It's a story with a simple truth: that violence is a dead end.And yet you have an admitted terrorist as a friend.
No single nation should pick and choose which nations hold nuclear weapons. That is why I strongly reaffirmed America's commitment to seek a world in which no nations hold nuclear weapons.When Iran detonates a nuke over Jeruselem we will now where to cast the blame Barry. Good job.
Iran should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power.Sure, they don't have billions of barrels of oil at their disposal to supply more than enough energy. Oh wait, nevermind.
Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.When attempted to contact them for a third time - Daniel Pearl, Nicholas Berg, Jack Hensley, Kenneth Bigley, Eugene Armstrong, Jonathon Michael Cote, Mohammed Mutawalli, Maher Kemal, Georgi Lazov, Shosei Koda, Kim Sun-il, Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr., Seif Adnan Kanaan, Piotr Stanczak, and Aasiya Z. Hassan were unavailable for comment.
The Internet and television can bring knowledge and information, but also offensive sexuality and mindless violence.Sure, it's not like your daughters listen to anything like that.
Some are eager to stoke the flames of division, and to stand in the way of progress.Right like telling your groupies to confront Republicans and "get in their face".
Here are two interesting stats from the speech:
Times he referenced the "Holy Koran": 4
Times he referenced the "Holy Bible": 1
Oh yeah, he's a Christian.
Hey Barry, everything I needed to know about Islam I learned on 9/11.
