Indonesia's pious information minister, Tifatul Sembiring, is in hot water for touching the hand of First Lady Michelle Obama, in what he describes as forced contact. The politician flaunts his conservatism as a Muslim and claims to avoid touching women who aren't family members, the Associated Press reports. Indonesia -- which has the world's largest Islamic population, the vast majority moderate -- had been debating how to handle encounters between the first lady and observant Muslim officials far in advance of the Obamas' arrival in the country Monday.

Geez!If he wouldn’t shake her hand she should have slapped him. I’m sick of this crap.
Hahahhahaa!!! Good for you. Thanks for the laugh..
This is like a bad movie. I can’t believe these stories really are an issue. This should be filed under “So What?”
Youtube link ?
Let the _______ Shake your hand, because _____ don’t rip your arms out of their sockets when they lose....
The solution is obvious, he needs to cut it off.
question : if the muzzie didn’t want to shake the hand of Mrs Obama why did he stand in the handshake line ?
These people are stupid beyond belief .
Off with her head!
The minister claimed it was an “accident”. I believe him. He probably didn’t realize the First Lady wasn’t a dude.
A female friend of mine worked with a Muslim computer consutant in the 90’s who wouldn’t shake her hand. He was eventually fired (free in America) for his unfriendly demeanor towards all women.
Hate to think of where he is and what he’s doing now. My friend learned not to offer her hand and he learned that we will not change our infidel customs for him.
I wouldn’t shake her hand. I wouldn’t give her the time of day.
Actually, I’m kinda with her on this. If I knew it would be a shameful embarrasment for him to shake my hand, I’d go out of my WAY to put him on the spot, LOL!
This is one reason I am not First Lady.
Maybe they should just all get over themselves?
For the first time, in my adult life, I am proud of Michelle Obama.
Honest. Good for her. Whether planned or accidental, it points out the LUNACY of the blind deference to all things Muzzie, and the ALLOWED and CELEBRATED misogyny of same.
Good on Shelli.
The moose limb probably thought the wookie was a guy...
