Barry to tell the Muslims that the U.S.A. is a "Muslim" country ("one of the largest in the world")Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Jeff Zeleny, writing for the New York Times Caucus Blog, June 2 (via Jihad Watch): "Obama Says U.S. Could Be Seen as a Muslim Country, Too,":
HAHN, Germany -- As President Obama prepared to leave Washington to fly to the Middle East, he conducted several television and radio interviews at the White House to frame the goals for a five-day trip, including the highly-anticipated speech Thursday at Cairo University in Egypt.
In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."...
As Spencer notes at Jihad Watch, was that an observation or a wish? It has to be a wish since an observation would divulge the truth that we're not even anything close to being a Muslim country.
"What I want to do is to create a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States, but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what's happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians," Mr. Obama said.
The president said the United States and other parts of the Western world "have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam."
And why should the U.S. and other parts of the Western world "have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam'? Shouldn't it be the other way around? Last time I checked we are a Christian nation and a predominantly Christian Western civilization and it is we who are the most civilized and have the most advanced governments (at least before Barry came along)
"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."...
Obama must be back on drugs; here's the facts that he chooses to ignore (HT - Jihad Watch):
Is his staff totally incompetent or is this just another case of Obama saying whatever fits his agenda, regardless of the truth. Keep in mind that the U.S. population is 304 million. In other words, Muslims constitute less than 1% of the U.S. population, so both in number and percent we are a "Judeo-Christian" country, NOT a Muslim country - much less "one of the largest" Muslim countries. Where does Team Obama get this idea from, certainly not from the facts!
Indonesia: 200 million Muslims. India: 156 million Muslims. Pakistan: 150 million Muslims.
United States: 2.3 million Muslims (according to the Pew Research Center).
"I think the most important thing I want to tell young people is that, regardless of your faith, those who build as opposed to those who destroy I think leave a lasting legacy, not only for themselves but also for their nations," Mr. Obama said. "And the impulse towards destruction as opposed to how can we study science and mathematics and restore the incredible scientific and knowledge -- the output that came about during centuries of Islamic culture."...Barack Hussein Obama has returned to his Muslim roots and is not only demeaning his country and belittling the genuine contributions of our Judeo-Christian nation to the world, Barry is essentially proselytizing for Islam and pushing it on America.
