Sure looks like it. Of course, his allegence could be with the Muslums.

Keep on truckling, Obama.

:(

I agree that only a relative few Muslims are radical -- but could the ones dancing in the street tone it down a bit next time?

I don’t believe that. I think his allegiance is to himself and his psycho wife... power and money... power and money.

Dude is just another politician, but the question is.. how weak is he?

That will help a lot. Also, I thought we weren’t supposed to mention his Muslim background.

Yes. Exactly what does he mean, the U.S. isn’t their enemies? He’s giving them money? Supporting their wars? What?

Whatever it is you can be sure MSN/CBS/NYT will report it as it in a way that the libs will support him.

I have heard that of the over one billion muslems, 10% are radical. That’s a lot.

President Obama tells Muslims that U.S. 'is not your enemy'

So sayeth the Apostate Muslim, or so many of them must thinking?

Besides, the U.S. not being their enemy has little to do with them seeing themselves as our enemy.

His first TV interview, and it's with Al-Arabiya. Figures.

Did he give the interview in English, or Arabic?

Here it comes...the whole flippin’ reason why the brain trusts wanted O upfront. Won’t work. Islamic extremists kill each other in a heartbeat and they eat leftists for a mid-afternoon snack.They think they will reach the moderates through Obama...hahaha. The only reason why we have gained any of their trust is because we have kicked butt. Once that stops...the trust is over.

Remember, GWB also stated publically that the US was not the enemy of the Muslim community, but the terrorists that subvert Islam were our enemies.

Now that Obama says it, it will be true, warm, loving and accepted, whereas when GWB said it, it was obviously a statement made for political purposes.

My 15 year old child wants us to move to New Zealand...does anybody know if it is any better there? I’m starting to look at flight schedules...

Mr. 0 is right. America isn’t the enemy of Muslims, but Islam is the enemy of America, regardless of what Mr. 0bama thinks or doesn’t think. Our enemies can smell his weakness.

"that the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago, there's no reason why we can't restore that

November 1979. Fifty-two American citizens were taken hostage when militant students of radical Islam stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.

July 1982 The first American hostage, American University of Beirut President David Dodge, kidnapped in July 1982. Many other kidnappings of Americans followed

April 1983. US Embassy in Lebanon hit by suicide bomber.

Sept. 20, 1984 Bombing of U.S. Embassy annex northeast of Beirut 24 people, two of whom were U.S. military personnel were killed.

June 14, 1985 Hijacking of TWA Flight 847. Robert Dean Stethem, a U.S. Navy diver, was shot and his body dumped on the airport tarmac. (IIRC he was a reservist)

October 1985.Sixty-three people were killed, including 17 Americans

Dec. 12, 1983 Bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Kuwait. Six people were killed, including a suicide truck bomber, and more than 80 others were injured

October 198 Achille Lauro Hijacking Mediterranean Sea, where 69 year old American Leon Klinghoffer October was shot, while in his wheelchair and then pushed overboard. Leader of the muslims, Abu Abbas was given sanctuary in Iraq, where he died under mysterous cercumstances just before Operation Iraqi Freedom began.

Yep, 25-30 years ago things were just peachy..for the Muslim terrorist crowd.

The number is quite larger than that, their covert support system reaches deep into the Muslim world's population also their whole premise is world dominance Via any means possible Lies,Intimidation,Murder.

Key supports no nukes law.

By IAN LLEWELLYN
National Party leader John Key says there will be no nuclear powered ships entering New Zealand’s harbours as long as he leads the party and he accepts the ANZUS treaty is dead. Speaking to journalists after a closed seminar on defence and foreign affairs policy, Mr Key tried to put to bed the nuclear issue, which has troubled National in the past. Some in National believe New Zealand should try and revive the ANZUS treaty which cemented New Zealand defence ties with both Australia and the United States. It has been on the shelf for 20 years since Labour passed the anti-nuclear legislation and some in National have argued to scrap the law in order to rebuild the alliance.

Bush: All religions pray to 'same God'

President George Bush has repeated his belief all religions, "whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God" – an assertion that caused outrage among evangelical leaders when he said it in November 2003. Bush made the statement Friday in an interview with Al Arabiya reporter Elie Nakouzi.

I don't see any reason to believe one word that proceeds out of that man's mouth. Until he produces his birth certificate or otherwise satisfies the place of birth question (truthfully!) his Credibility is in doubt.

Just my opinion...

I love it here. Originally from Vancouver Canada, never going back (I’m a Kiwi now).

Recommend you come here on a visit first, see if you like it — the pace is alot more laid-back than the US. It is midsummer now. Weather is much like LA in that it never snows in Auckland. It gets hotter as you go north, and colder as you go south (appreciable temperature changes every 100 km or so.)

Drop me a FReepmail with any questions you have.

*DieHard*
