WASHINGTON (AFP) – The White House on Friday announced a "summit on entrepreneurship" to build economic ties with the Islamic world, part of President Barack Obama's outreach to Muslims.

headline:

“Obama calls ‘entrepreneurship summit’ with Muslims”

http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=CNG.c429eac8e6bddb6d430d2b4d28386dd9.551&show_article=1

(be sure to listen to video in link at the bottom of this post)

In addition, a letter from Hillary:

Hillary Clinton
Remarks at the U.S.-Islamic World Forum
Doha, Qatar
February 14, 2010

President Obama and I believe that education and innovation are the currency of this century. That's why he announced a new era of engagement with Muslim communities to expand educational opportunities, support entrepreneurs, and promote advances in science and technology.

Our goal is to identify excellent ideas and successful projects in Muslim communities and then invest in them, help to scale them up, and to connect innovators and entrepreneurs, so that they can support and enhance each other’s work.

We are creating a Global Technology and Innovation Fund, which we will launch this spring, that will provide hundreds of millions of dollars in capital to small and medium-sized businesses throughout the Middle East, Asia, and Africa . . .

We have to continue to expand and strengthen outreach to students. And that is why we have increased funding for educational exchange programs for Muslim students. NASA, our space program, has partnered with the Arab Youth Venture Foundation in Dubai to give Arab and American engineering students the chance to work together on NASA missions.

****************************

These are illegal acts - NOT the prerogative of the Executive Office under our Separation of Powers - indeed, NASA and the Space Program are legally under the auspices of CONGRESS. The WH has no legal right to by-pass Congress on NASA.

and so the redistribution of money out of OUR pockets kicks into high gear. (and the redistribution of jobs - tens of thousands of Americans will loose their jobs - as the money and jobs are given to Muslims around the world...not to mention the technology to create several more Irans. And then the Caliphate?)

Obama stated his goal of redistribution before he was elected...it's the prime tenet of the Black Liberationists churches, one of which he sat in for 20 years.

We are dealing with America-hating, One World Gov’t driven ‘enemies within’, the likes of which we have never seen or imagined in the history of this country.

Listen to the perfect pronunciations in the video below and his bragging about his Muslim family background, his Muslim upbringing and his admiration of all things Muslim.

Why isn’t he focusing on entrepreneurship IN THE US, at home? He can start by listening to the small business community, cut regulations, taxes, instead of burdening them with his health care monster and cap and trade, which are both job and business killers.

“He said that the meeting would “identify how we can deepen ties between business leaders, foundations and social entrepreneurs in the United States and Muslim communities around the world.”

Let’s become the leaders of the free world again, that would be a start...

Where he’s headed with this:
“Under ‘Sharia’ law non-Muslims must pay tax called Jizya if they want to live safely in Muslim states, otherwise the state refuses to protect them, even though it protects the Muslim citizens.”

“There are many differences of Sharia banks from orthodox banking. In Sharia banking, interest (deemed “usury” regardless of rate or amount) cannot be charged, and investments must not be associated in any way with gambling, drinking alcohol, eating pork, etc. Very importantly, it calls for alms giving, referred to in Islamic parlance as “zakat.”

Zakat demands a tithe of 2.5 percent of revenue be donated to Islamic charity. If western banks follow this rule, it is certain that a portion of this money will end up in the hands of radical Muslims who are sworn to destroy the United States and replace our government with Sharia law.”

1. This cannot end well. The narcissist is a disaster because he has the story wrong, gets along with people who have the story wrong, invest all infrastructures down the toilet in the most wrong of stories, and yet wants to be the story... Bubye world.

2. The narcissist is foreign controled because of the above.

Patience. People wondered where was the justice for Mary Jo. After all, The Swimmer didn't disappear into the annals of history shamed and humiliated, he rose to the position of "Lion of the Senate", riding the wave of Camelot.

Tick tock, 40 years on, the interest accrued on the debt. After 40 years, not only did Ted expire, but his death appears to have marked the beginning of the end for the entire House of Demoncrat-RINO and all manner of Congress' deception. He campaigned for "Change" and Obamacare was to be his legacy. Looks like he scored, becoming the first casualty in the Death Panel of the One True Judge.

Not a Muslim. Rather Obama is a godless socialist. He’s probably friendly with the Muslims because he thinks that if he’s Neville Chamberlain, they’ll start liking us.

Actually, I think that Obama meant to say “my alleged Muslim faith”. I doubt that Obama is a Muslim, at least now. He hung around with Communists and other Radical Leftists (like Frank Marshall Davis) and they tend to be atheists or at least non-religous. In fact, Obama admitted sharing his mother’s skepticism of religion.

Isn't it interesting how most people never imagined he was referring to redistribution outside America?

We are dealing with America-hating, One World Gov’t driven ‘enemies within’, the likes of which we have never seen or imagined in the history of this country.

100% agreement. One year ago, people thought this idea was absurd. As the plan of the infiltrators unfolds, more and more Americans are waking up to find this a very sad and frightening reality.

They have nothing to sell but the oil the West found and drilled for them. But while Barack placates the greenies by prohibiting (along with his Congress and his Energy Czar) new drilling here, that prohibition maintains the Arab Cartel price. In return, the campaign contributions will come in to BHO for 2012...and the world goes round and round.
