DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - In U.S.-funded ads running on Pakistani TV, subtitled clips show President Barack Obama extolling America's traditions of religious freedom. For many watching, though, the message misses the mark in efforts to calm the Islamic outrage over a film denigrating the Prophet Muhammad.
America's free speech laws and values of openness are not in question, but rather there is confusion and anger over how they are applied.

My FREEDOM is not contingent on other countries acceptance of it. They are confused about how my rights are "applied"?! It's either freedom or it's conditional which is NOT freedom. The AP is SO good at double speak. They can kiss my FREE American.......values. lol
I'm also sick to death of the excuses that the press comes up with to LIMIT my freedom. They can all go suck eggs!
If the Muzzies don’t like what is going on in America, I suggest they pay a little more attention to the country THEY live in and stop worrying about ours. We’re Americans, they’re Muzzies. There is a big difference. A huge difference. We believe in freedom.
That article really made me angry. It boils down to BRIAN MURPHY saying that Muslims have no self-control and OUR freedom is at fault. They really DO hate us for our freedom and so does the press.
Perhaps if the US invaded and obliterarated THEIR SOVERIGN SOIL, as they did to ours - they would come to understand what “tolerance” means.
When you blow stuff up, you may get me to look - but when you blow MY stuff up; you get my attention.
So, these countries can STONE WOMEN and do other brutal acts, but we are the bad guys again.
Many things they do offend Christians. Muslims should apologize.
Then they should eat a slab of bacon.
America is always the “bad guy”. Just ask Obama. He was raised and is supported by those who hate American exceptionalism.
Their Borg cube is on my short list.
I’ll say whatever the hell I want to say about Islam. I don’t give a damn what some liberal “journalist” says..
I just had a bacon sandwich. It was excellent! ;-)
Pakistanis didn't know about any "insults" anyway until 0blablah and Hillbilly broadcast this...
Which immediately resulted in this...
The Marxist and his rabble are trying to “cut America down to size”. They believe all the ills in the world are our fault.
The "Cube" (Kabaa) is much older than Islam, they stole it from the inhabitants of Mecca.
They don’t have anything that they didn’t steal.
0blahblah is a neo-anti-Colonialist who thinks the whole western world is the cause of all the world's troubles and the U.S.A. is the worst of all. He is trying to fundamentally change the world not just the U.S..
I believe that. It explains a lot including Obama campaigning in foreign countries. He sees himself as recreating the whole world the way HE thinks it should be.
"The questing before [you] is one of awful moment to this country . . . in proportion to the magnitude of the subject [there must] be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that [you] can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should [you] keep back [your] opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, [you] should consider [your]self as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which [is] above all earthly kings . . . Are [you] disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? . . . whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, [you must be] willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it."
You heard from one of the Founders.. if anyone denies free speech -- even "through fear of giving offense" -- they are committing treason.
Or in the case of the Islamists here in the U.S.of A. who demand that we must not criticize Islam -- they are committing treason and they should be arrested, tried, convicted, and interned for the duration. Period.
And the press along with them.
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 Islamists abuse of these poor 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?
His manipulations can only result in increased tension, strife and war. We can see those fruits already starting to ripen. People will not be pushed into playing out one man's fantasies even for promises of wealth and happiness. People cannot be pushed like that. They couldn't fit into his fairytale dream world if they wanted to and live like dolls in a child's playhouse. That defies reality.
