Obamas Message to Muslims Called Pathetic
In his interview with a Saudi-owned TV channel on Tuesday, President Barack Obama referred to an illusionary past in the Muslim world that was in fact plagued by turmoil, a leading Middle Eastern expert declared.
Amir Taheri, in a New York Post column headlined Pathetic Message, said Obama looked to the past rather than the future when he told an Al-Arabiya interviewer he wanted a return to the same respect and partnership that America had with the Muslim world as recently as 20 or 30 years ago.
But 30 years ago, Taheri noted, American diplomats were being held hostage in Iran, Soviet troops were seeking to annex Afghanistan, Saddam Hussein was preparing to invade Iran, Saudi Arabia was under siege by Muslim militants, and Syrian troops were preparing to invade Lebanon.
Iranian-born Taheri, whose books include Holy Terror: Inside the World of Islamic Terrorism, wrote in the Post that other features of this golden age were the seizure of power by mullahs in Tehran, the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, the coming to power of communists in the Horn of Africa, the military coup in Turkey, the first Islamist terror attacks in Algeria, unprecedented waves of repression in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and the imposition of military rule in Pakistan.
Twenty years ago saw the U.S. arming the mujahedin in Afghanistan, Iraq gassing thousands of Kurds and preparing to invade Kuwait, Iranian mullahs arming Hezbollah units in Lebanon, Turkey launching all-out attacks on Kurdish secessionists, and the Libyan terror network killing American soldiers in Europe and blowing up U.S. jets.
Nor was there any nod toward reformers in Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Obama sought to portray himself as a bridge between the U.S. and the Muslim world...

Obomber obviously recalling his Muslim youth through rose colored glasses, humming Kumbaya and convinced he will talk to the world and calm the waters...what a dope...
Think happy thoughts.
I don’t understand the liberal mindset that thinks we are so powerful that we have control to change the minds of people who have stated, categorically, that they hate us and want us dead. To me, that is the ultimate racism. It’s like saying, you’re not smart enough to understand how magnanamous we can be...Frankly, it’s disprespectful. They say they hate us, they show us they hate us, but liberals think they’re lying or something, it’s incredible.
I think 0 was actually singing "Kumbaallah" while living in Indonesia.
Wonder if the terrorists use the liberals as useful idiots or if they kill them outright? Hypothetically consider they choose the second ideas and kill the liberals. What do the liberals do then as they never can admit they were wrong about the harmless and misunderstood terrorists? Will they finally acknowledge that George W Bush was right?
Is it just me, or does Bamby sound like the old Coca Cola commercial in the early 70’s:
I’d like to buy the world a home and furnish it with love, Grow apple trees and honey bees, and snow white turtle doves. I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, I’d like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company. [Repeat the last two lines, and in the background:] It’s the real thing, Coke is what the world wants today. Or, like the president Jack Nicholson in “Mars Attacks the Earth” stated to the Martian, “can’t we all just get along?” What an absolute idiot obama is.
That poster is awesome!
Weird thing is I remember the Barry Manilow song but not the Coke commercial with the same song... Were you making that up
Finally a Muzzie gets something right> Obama and friends are truly pathetic.
“What an absolute idiot obama is.”
He’s a schmuck.
But the people who voted for him are bigger idiots, and the MSM jerks who manipulated the information going out to the sheeple should be shot.
They (libs) think that ‘he ‘can change their minds. A logical absurdity they afford to the messiah of the moment.
“Obomber obviously recalling his Muslim youth through rose colored glasses, humming Kumbaya ...”
Hahahahaha...I sit corrected...
One might imagine Comrade Zero intends to turn this around and do the foreign agent trick himself, maybe by working directly for the Iranians. In the meantime the Steelers ignored all that and went ahead and won the Supe Bowl anyway (today).
“Is it just me, or does Bamby sound like the old Coca Cola commercial in the early 70s:”
Obomber is definitely familiar with Coke...
“One might imagine Comrade Zero intends to turn this around and do the foreign agent trick himself, maybe by working directly for the Iranians. In the meantime the Steelers ignored all that and went ahead and won the Supe Bowl anyway (today).”
Let’s hope Obomber doesn’t drop the ball...but I am pretty sure that if he doesn’t, it will be knocked out of his hands...he is strictly a busher...
I remember that commercial. They were lined up, on a hill with the sun shining brightly behind them.
