Clinton Vows to Reach Out to Islamic World
By Glenn Kessler Washington Post Staff Writer Tuesday, February 17, 2009; 10:02 AM
TOKYO, Feb. 17 -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday the Obama administration will make "a concerted effort" to restore the image of the United States in the Islamic world and will seek to "enlist the help of Muslims around the world against the extremists."
Clinton, who on Wednesday will travel to Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, told students at Tokyo University that "this is one of the central security challenges we face -- as to how to better communicate in a way that gets through the rhetoric and through the demagogy and is heard by people who can make judgments about what we stand for and who we truly are."
Clinton's remarks came in response to a question about the "prejudice" in the United States against Muslims because of terrorism, a term she rejected forcefully, pointing to the history of Christians. "I am a Christian," she said. "Through the centuries we have had many people who have done terrible things in the name of Christianity. They have perverted the religion."

So, does this mean the world can put up their hands for part of this free money we are about to give away
Like her husband carrying around a big prop bible and then getting a blow job on Easter Sunday from a teenaged college intern?
Go ahead. Reach out! When you pull back a bloody stub don’t come crying to us.
“I am a Christian,” she said. “Through the centuries we have had many people who have done terrible things in the name of Christianity. They have perverted the religion.”
Visions of Bill and Hill carrying the massive family Bible to Foundry Methodist every Sunday (during election cycles) come to mind
great minds sink to the same depths...
Define: concerted effort
I hope there's an audio of this somewhere? Did she happen to mention the terrible things done in the name of Islam, and how terrorists perverted that "religion?" Because that's the usual bs line, and this new comment is a quantum jump in the pc rhetoric. We don't usually hear such blatant crap from establishment types like Clinton.
WHY, oh, why can’t we get rid of the Clintons!!!??
One of the biggest sinners becomes the biggest apologist.
give the palestinians a us based homeland
I think it's called Detroit.
Did this woman convert to Islam?
The usual response when you apologize to Muslims for defending yourself is that they spit in your face, as here.
We’re so sorry we liberated you in Kuwait and Iraq. We know you miss Saddam. The US wasn’t around during the Crusades, but we’re sorry for that too.
How many people in poverty have been fed and clothed because of the work of Christians?
How many children in poverty have been educated because of the work of Christians?
How many slaves were freed because of the works of Christians?
How many orphans found homes because of the works of Christians?
I'm really tired of this constant mea culpa about Christianity. This world is a far better place because of Christians.
Where can I get one of those signs? Hitlery isn’t welcome here either!
