Obama to beam message to Irish Muslim entrepreneurs

25 April 2010 By John Burke, Public Affairs Correspondent

US president Barack Obama will address Irish-Muslim businesspeople and community leaders during a two-day entrepreneurship event this week.

Obama’s message on the benefits and opportunities of enterprise will be broadcast over the internet from Washington to a gathering in Dublin of Irish Muslims from the worlds of trade, investments and markets.

During the presidential entrepreneurship summit, the president will speak about developing closer links between the Muslim community and providing the capability and funds to develop new business and co-operative networks.

Obama is not qualified to speak on business or free enterprise...or even WORK. Now, he may just know a few things about Islam....

I was unaware that there was a large group of Irish Muslims who had really good ideas and just didn’t know how to get the ball rolling.

Why a MUSLIM summit? Why not just a summit?

Unfortunately, Ireland, during it’s great economic expansion from the late 90’s to about 2008, allowed foreigners to emigrate to their fair island from Eastern Europe and.....muslim countries. Big mistake (the latter that is). Now their going to have to start dealing with this rot the way the rest of Britain (and Europe) is attempting (or not attempting) to deal with it. Bad news from all over the homeland of Europe. You’ve let the cancer in and now you don’t know what to do with the problem because you’re afraid to be labeled a bigot, racist, islamaphobe, etc. Well, what’s worse, being called a name or attempting to preserve your country and it’s culture from those that have no intention of assimilating, but rather taking over. It’s a war in its very early stages, but no one has the bullocks to call it that....wake up Europe, and America, the enemy is already here.

THE BRIEFING ROOM

THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary ___________________________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release October 23, 2009

White House Announces Global Technology and Innovation Fund

During his speech in Cairo on June 4, the President announced that the United States would “launch a new fund to support technological development in Muslim-majority countries.” As the latest step in delivering on this commitment, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation announced this week a call for proposals for a Global Technology and Innovation Fund. This fund will help catalyze and facilitate private sector investments that promote access to and growth of technology in OPIC-eligible countries throughout Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. OPIC will provide financing ranging between $25 million and $150 million in total capital for each selected fund.

The Global Technology and Innovation Fund is part of an on-going U.S. government effort to expand partnerships that advance economic opportunity and job creation - including in Muslim-majority countries. Specifically, the sectors of interest for prospective funds may address issues that can have a transformational impact in these regions such as technology, education, telecom, media, business services and financial technology and clean-tech.

NASA plans more outreach to Muslim countries
Orland Sentinel ^ | February 16, 2010 | Mark Matthews
Posted on March 12, 2010 7:19:00 PM PST by myknowledge

WASHINGTON — NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden said Tuesday that President Barack Obama has asked him to “find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries” as the White House pushes the space agency to become a tool of international diplomacy.

“In addition to the nations that most of you usually hear about when you think about the International Space Station, we now have expanded our efforts to reach out to non-traditional partners,” said Bolden, speaking to a lecture hall of young engineering students.

Apr 23 03:48 PM US/Eastern
By JULIE PACE
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -
SNIPPET: “During a June speech in Cairo, Obama said he wanted to forge a relationship between the U.S. and Muslims based on respect and parterships with the private sector and civil society. Among his goals, Obama said, was to “create a new corps of business volunteers to partner with counterparts in Muslim-majority countries.””

I didn’t know that Ireland was entitled to any representation in the U.S. but the blatant discrimination against Catholic and Protestant Irish sure sticks out like a sore thumb.

Don Morris writes at Doc’s Talk (thanks to Janet Levy): ...As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States — Muslim 1.0%

Australia — Muslim 1.5%

Canada — Muslim 1.9%

China — Muslim 1%-2%

Italy — Muslim 1.5%

Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark — Muslim 2%

Germany — Muslim 3.7%

United Kingdom — Muslim 2. 7%

Spain — Muslim 4%

Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

France — Muslim 8%

Philippines — Muslim 5%

Sweden — Muslim 5%

Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris — car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam — Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana — Muslim 10%

India — Muslim 13.4%

Israel — Muslim 16%

Kenya — Muslim 10%

Russia — Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%

Chad — Muslim 53.1%

Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania — Muslim 70%

Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

Egypt — Muslim 90%

Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

Iran — Muslim 98%

Iraq — Muslim 97%

Jordan — Muslim 92%

Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

Pakistan — Muslim 97%

Palestine — Muslim 99%

Syria — Muslim 90%

Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of “Dar-es-Salaam” — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

Somalia — Muslim 100%

Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

“Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world. And all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, “The Haj”...

Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat
