First ladyĺs handshake with conservative Muslim raises Indonesian eyebrows
YahooNews ^ | 11/09/10 | Brett Michael Dykes

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.

This is like a bad movie. I can’t believe these stories really are an issue. This should be filed under “So What?”

The solution is obvious, he needs to cut it off.

The minister claimed it was an “accident”. I believe him. He probably didn’t realize the First Lady wasn’t a dude.

Probably one of the few positives things about having someone like Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. That is forcing high visibility confrontations like this between western culture and Islam.

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.

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.

I think its funny that Mooch being snubbed is on video and I also like that it makes the muzz look bad.
Mooch is too “in everyone’s face”—she needs to just get her wide load out of the lime light. BHO is enough of a shame for America without tossing her mug-ugly butt into the press every 5 minutes.
Most Americans are sick of these two.
