NASA Administrator Charles Bolden revealed his plans to improve relations between America's space exploration agency and the Muslim world to Al Jazeera before Congress, the Washington Examiner reported.
Bolden called a couple of lawmakers with the news on June 28, after his interview with the Middle East news organization but before it aired, the newspaper reported. "He ran down some of the things from the president's new space policy, and mentioned outreach to Muslims," Rep. Pete Olson, the top Republican on the House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics recalled to the newspaper. "That stunned me. I didn't believe it."
"NASA ... represents the best of America. Its purpose is not to inspire Muslims or any other cultural entity. These moon rocks will bring us closer to the Muslim community. We should not judge their culture." he said.
What’s funny is that I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if this were actually true.
I’ve learned that there is no such thing as “now I’ve heard everything” when it comes to this administration.
You’ve NEVER heard everything.
LOL...that’s about the only thing NASA and Iran have in common: Moon rocks and moonbats.
I’m surprised that Semmens got beat to the punch on this one......
Sometimes ‘humor’ isn’t funny, as in this case. In My Old School Humble Opinion (IMOSHO)
One of the first Moon rocks to come onto the commercial market was in fact the one that President Nixon had presented to the Shah of Iran. The latter fled without it in 1979 and the mullahs put it up for sale.
You almost can’t parody this administration anymore...
Oh for CRYIN OUT LOUD. We should be condemning these stonings, not giving them rocks from the moon to PERPETRATE them. Don’t they know that this makes us culpable in a CriMe AgainT HUmaNitY>>>?
Was your old school a Madrasah?
Does being sensitive to the destruction of human life make me a ‘Stoner”?
You and I are in to different worlds of awareness IMOSHO!
LOL post of the day!
They would probably consider the Moon rocks to be the Seven Daughters of Allah (from Allah’s days as part of a polytheistic religion) and want to destroy the rocks because they offend their delicate musllim sensitivities.
I tried to bring both atrocities to the front and tried to make people aware of the absurdities of Islam and the NASA directive.
Just as the Jews make fun of Hitler.
Some people are rather thick. Muslims hate cartoons and characterization of their religion.
Remember the cartoonist they killed? They hate humor. Probably at risk for posting this.
BTW. The British embassy (in Iran) said that Iran was not going to stone that woman.
Think Bambi would try and make an issue out of this. NAHH. He would want everyone silent.
Liberal American women think that Islam isnt really so bad for Muslim women, because they get stoned and commit adultery (wait....or was that the other way around????)
Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World ,, decent movie ..
[insert photoshop of "man in the moon with Islamic beard" here]
LOL! How many get it?
I think it’s ironic that the guy who thinks he is Spock is dismantling our space program.
More proof of him born on the planet Vulcan then Hawaii.
Shatner looks more presidential.
BTW. Spock should never be Captain.
That is correct, they have decided not to stone her, but are deciding between cutting her head off or burning at the stake.
BTW, best use of irony in a long while.
As long as they don’t feel bad about themselves. That is what’s important.
I guess there will be some NASA scientists there at the time for support?
As the first measure of this new initiative, it has been agreed that the name of the brightest star in the heavens (currently Sirius, otherwise known as the "Dog Star") will be changed immediately to "Barack Hussein Obama", since this would seem to be the most appropriate (sic). When a perplexed science reporter was prompted to ask him- "Sirius?", Golden quickly responded, "Indeed we are!"
In an adjunct policy, an Executive Order was to be issued within a few days, barring the well-known "International Star Registry" from issuing any more star names to the public, as this would conflict with the previous initiative and be insensitive to the Muslim outreach program."
