Skip to comments.Muslims Should Stop Digging at Obama

President Barack Obama who conesses to have Muslims relatives and who comes from a Muslim father has numerous times; both verbally and in writing painted Muslims with a kind and appreciative brush. He has described Muslims as nice, talented, civil and agreeable people. His resolve and decision to utter his full name with the middle name Hussein during the oath taking ceremony as president speaks for his conviction and strength of character. Perhaps he has a laudable fondness for the Muslims whom he thinks were as peace living, law abiding and hardworking people within the United States as other were. How far can he go? He is doing what he can possibly do for the Muslims. He cannot declare Islam as the religion of the US. Indeed Muslimsexpectation are unrealistic and imprudent. The Muslim detractors of Barack Obama cannot visualize that he has brought about a marked change in United States policy and postures towards the Muslims? Not long ago, it was almost a treasonable act to have any kind or contacts with Iran unless that country would succumb to untenable pre drawn conditions. America remained on the war path with Iran labeling it an evil country that was making nuclear weapons to be used against Israel.
The relations between Iran and the United States were at their lowest during President Bush presidency. It was quite conceivable that if United Stated had succeeded in Iraq and has stabilized her occupation there, the next target would have been Iran. Such was the nature of the one sided American animosity against Iran. Now compare that with Obamas strategy. Obama has never punitively mentioned Irans progressing nuclear technology.
On the contrary he has chosen parleys to prevail upon Iran to sort out the vexatious issues between the two countries. Iran is getting the American favorable attention to the extent that her cooperation might be sought for obtaining the desired goals in Afghanistan. It is possible that the supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan might be rerouted through Iran. Iran is now much closer to America and the west Europe than what it was ever since the clerical regime came into power.
Obamas outreach to the Muslim bloc in pivoted on building of what he says a relationship of mutual respect and sovereign equality In case of Pakistan, the arm twisting policy has been replaced by a process of negotiations and appeasement. With Pakistan, his administration is trying to build up a new understanding largely based on giving a free hand and enhanced yet unfettered economic and military aid to Pakistan. Pakistan might be and is fighting a proxy war for America in the past.
But, of late, in the wake of Swat events, this war on relgious militancy has become Pakistans own war. So even if America leaves this region or gives no aid, Pakistan would still have to counter this threat of surging fundamentalism. The new American administration unlike the former is well aware of Pakistans limitations and therefore has stopped forcing her to do more. American emissaries have been visiting Pakistan during the past several months and their attitude and approach has been rather conciliatory, mild, persuasive and friendly.
With regard to the Isarel-Palestinain conflict, America under the previous administrations has been stubbornly partial and unabashedly partisan in favor of Israel. Obamas first priority after taking office was to sent an emissary to the Middle East for initiating serious deliberations to address this most intractable issue of the present times. He has steadfastly held on to his elections commitment of recalling American troops from Iraq. He has been a consistent and resolute opponent of Iraq war. Hamas or Palestinians are no more outrightly dubbed as terrorists.
As a matter of fact this blame game of holding others responsible for the ills and predicaments of the Islamic world should now end.The Muslim regimes are either autocracies or monarchies. Despite having enormous riches and resources, Muslims polities are backward and least enlightened.
Not yet, anyway.
Ponder this....Muslim Demographics video on YouTube...
Hah!! This coward would not even allow his middle name to be used throughout the entire campaign! Even McQueeg was backing him up.
Then, after he's already elected,...he suddenly shows the resolve and character to use his middle name.
This kenyan charlatan makes me want to puke and to beat the sh*t out of those who were stupid enough to vote for him.
Damn right he cannot. Our is not a theocracy, despite what those on the Left and those in the Middle East have said.
He forgot supremacist, unconstitutional, and intolerant.
So what is Iran's new purpose for pursuing nuclear weapons?
I thought they were worse in the latter years of the Carter administration.
The writer must have meant President Carter.
It's ALWAYS been Pakistan's war. But you fools were too busy coddling guys like Osama Bin Laden.
You are with us or you are with the terrorists. The line was drawn in the sand by the enemies of mankind long ago.
Right. What's happening in Pak is the direct result of this administrations failure to take a strong stance and force the Pak govt to do the same. Idiots!
“Due to modern technology, those numbers are subject to change without prior notice.”
and to beat the sh*t out of those who were stupid enough to vote for him.
Please don’t! There is no sewer anywhere that is capable of handling that.
Why should they stop? They have him on the run.
