Obama cancels election-season meeting with Egyptian Islamist Morsi
Daily Caller ^ | September 24, 2012 | Neil Munro

Posted on 09/24/2012 8:58:45 AM PDT by opentalk

President Barack Obama has quietly cancelled a politically risky plan to meet this week with Egypt’s new Islamist president. The plan was cancelled amid a wave of riots and attacks in Arab countries that have damaged Obama’s campaign-trail claim to foreign policy competence.

The cancelled visit was mentioned in a Sept. 23 New York Times article about Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, an Islamist who now governs the Arab region’s most important country.

Despite critical 2011 support from Obama for the revolt that removed Hosni Mubarak, Morsi is now demanding restrictions on U.S. free speech that is critical of Islam..

Yep, I think instead of quietly cancelling the meeting, it will be that the meeting quietly takes place without public scrutiny.

Also...Obama Campaign Quietly Ditches Faux Flag

...The image was tasteless at best. It is hard to imagine any other politician arrogant enough to remake the flag in his own image: Barack Obama, however, has never been one to be deterred by bad taste.

The larger problem was that, as many pointed out, the flag bore an uncanny resemblance to this grisly photograph taken at the American consulate in Benghazi: So the Obama campaign has quietly ditched the flag poster...

How will Barry get his “Gold Sword Muslim Brotherhood” merit badge for all the good work he has done for the cause lately?

Shame be upon Egypt’s new Islamist president.. he recently said that the U.S. must change. To be more like the scum Islamism represents? No thanks!

From Internet sources:". . . close to ninety percent [of suicide bombers] were suffering from severe illness such as blindness, cancer, missing limbs or leprosy . . . being physically handicapped or mentally retarded often leads to exclusion . . . and becoming a martyr might be the only chance of achieving social recognition and honour — if not just a way to end the pain of being socially isolated (which is especially traumatizing in collectivist cultures like Islam). . .People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam."

Shame be upon the Islamists and the Obama Administration for sanctioning the abuse of these poor, defenseless souls.. where is the "sensitivity" for these victims of hundreds of years of Islamism's practice of inbreeding and Islamism's horrible abuse of these poor souls including killing them?

e-mail:

*Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?*
*Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?*
*Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?*
*Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?*
*Have you ever shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?*
*Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?*
*Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life ???? *

*The answer is no, you did not. Just ask yourself WHY?*

Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said:
“I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America ‘s history.”

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN’S RESPONSE
Dear Mr. Obama:
Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed?
Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.
Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day?
Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.
Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn’t think so.
Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England?
No.
Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ?
No, they did not.
In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery.
Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.”
Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? - Not present.
There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with
Martin Luther King, Jr.or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? - Again, not present.
In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the
Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the
‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband.
Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?

Where were Muslims during World War II?
They were aligned with Adolf Hitler.
The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops
and accepted support from the Nazi’s in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were the Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.
No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day.
Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims whose asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.
To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America...
Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims. And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was
supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America.

Was it really such a tough call for him?

Then again, he can't decide if Egypt is an ally or not. LOL

I don’t believe this for a minute. They will meet in private or other ways. After all Obama needs the address of where to drop off the blind sheik after the elections.

Obama is dangerous enough to let it happen.

Obama needs to be more considerate of Morsi. Someday one of Morsi’s children born while Morsi was ‘professing’ in the USA might return to the USA and run for POTUSA. Some people do/will argue that all that person has to do to become eligible is to spend a few years here having been born here.
