White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the speech at Cairo University “will outline [Obama's] personal commitment to engagement, based upon mutual interests and mutual respect.”
Engagement?Barack is already married; does he plan to marry us off to Arab Sheikhs? The only way Islam will engage with us is their attempt to subvert, conquer and dominate or destroy us. Constructive dialog with Islam is impossible. Islam makes demands, it does not compromise.
Mutual Interests?Predator and prey have no mutual interests. They share nothing beyond a common desire to eat without being eaten.
Mutual Respect?Islam demands respect, it does not grant it. Respect, like credit, must be earned. An auto repair shop in a nearby city had an old toilet seat hanging above the office door. These words were painted on it.
"Credit is given where credit is due. We pay cash and so will you!"Islam denies equality to women, assigning them the role of chattel property as breeding stock. Islam attacks, captivates and enslaves women & children after mass murdering their husbands, fathers & brothers. Islam permits sexual exploitation of captive women. Islam denies social & legal equality to minoritys. Islam is worthy of respect; President Barack Hussein Obama is not.
In the runup to the big speech, President Barack Hussein Obama made one accurate statement, quoted by a fellow blogger.
The president said the United States and other parts of the Western world “have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam.”That is true, if taken literally. I don't believe that the President means it literally; I believe that his intent is propaganda & indoctrination, not education.
Another quotation, from an interview with Laura Haim, of Canal Plus, exemplifies deception and irrationality.
“And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world,” Mr. Obama said. “And so there’s got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.”While there are some wild claims floating about, the Islamic population of the U.S.A. is probably less than 5 million. The following quote is from the CIA Factbook.
Protestant 51.3%, Roman Catholic 23.9%, Mormon 1.7%, other Christian 1.6%, Jewish 1.7%, Buddhist 0.7%, Muslim 0.6%, other or unspecified 2.5%, unaffiliated 12.1%, none 4% (2007 est.)307,212,123 * .006 = 1,843,273. For purpose of debate, lets stipulate a Muslim population of 5 million. Compare that to 206 million in Indonesia and 74.8 million in Egypt. Of course, America is one of the largest Muslim countries. Yeah, right. Because slightly more than half of a percent of our population is Muslim, we need a dialogue and understanding of Muslims. It seems that B.H.O. has a problem with statistics & logic.
In another interview, Michele Norris and Steve Inskeep of NPR played the devil's advocate role.
The President would negotiate with Hamas if they would simply whisper sweet nothings in his ear-- tell him the lies he wants to hear, with a wink and a not to the devil, not God. Genocidal & policidal intentions are clear on the face of the Charter of Hamas. Only a fool expects a leopard to change its spots or a skunk to change its stripes. A skunk without stripes would smell as rank. Lucy will always snatch the ball from Charlie Brown at the last moment.Q You've mentioned many times the importance of reaching out to Iran with an open hand, trying to engage that country. Are you also willing to try to engage with Hezbollah or Hamas, entities that have now had significant gains in recent elections?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, let's just underscore a point here. Iran is a huge, significant nation state that has, I think, across the international community been recognized as such. Hezbollah and Hamas are not. And I don't think that we have to approach those entities in the same way. In the --
Q -- does that change with their electoral gains?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, look, if at some point -- Lebanon is a member of the United Nations -- if at some point they are elected as a head of state -- or a head of state is elected in Lebanon that is a member of that organization, then that would raise these issues. That hasn’t happened yet.
With respect to Hamas, I do think that if they recognize the Quartet principles that have been laid out -- and these are fairly modest conditions here -- that you recognize the state of Israel without prejudging what various grievances or claims are appropriate, that you abide by previous agreements, that you renounce violence as a means of achieving your goals -- then I think discussions with Hamas could potentially proceed.
And so the problem has been that there's been a preference oftentimes on the part of these organizations to use violence and not take responsibility for governance as a means of winning propaganda wars or advancing their organizational aims. At some point, though, they may make a transition -- there are examples of -- in the past, of organizations that have successfully transitioned from violent organizations to ones that recognize that they can achieve their aims more effectively through political means, and I hope that occurs.But I am somebody who is very anxious to have the Afghan government and the Pakistani government have the capacity to ensure that those safe havens don't exist. And so it's -- I think will be an important reminder that we have no territorial ambitions in Afghanistan. We don't have an interest in exploiting the resources of Afghanistan. What we want is simply that people aren’t hanging out in Afghanistan who are plotting to bomb the United States. And I think that's a fairly modest goal that other Muslim countries should be able to understand.
Who gives a damn what methods Islam uses to achieve its aims? Islam's strategic objective is total world conquest. Its tactical objective is reconquest of Israel. Those objectives are not acceptable no matter what methods are used to pursue and achieve them.
Our objective of removing Afghanistan & Iraq from membership in the set of terror sponsoring states is unattainable unless Islam is eliminated from those nations. World conquest, genocide & terrorism are intrinsic sacraments of Islam. Those sacraments can not be removed from its texts or practices; Islam can not be rendered anodyne.
NPR broadcast the opening sentences of the speech. It is clear from those sentences that the President is spewing feces; there is no truth in what he said. .
