Obama Quote in Cairo Airport: 'We must educate our children to become like young Egyptian people.'
American Thinker ^ | 10/06/2012 | Andrew Bostom

Posted on 10/07/2012 6:37:05 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

A colleague sent me the image below from Egypt's Cairo Airport, which had been discussed in an e-mail posted September 22, 2012 at Godfather Politics:

My husband and I just came back from the Middle East. As we arrived in Cairo, going down the mechanical stairs to go to the baggage claim area, there's this big poster which reads: "We must educate our children to become like young Egyptian people." President of the USA, Barack Obama

Notwithstanding President Obama's quoted admonition (from 2011), a detailed 2004 study of Egyptian children's textbooks ("Jews, Christians, War and Peace in Egyptian School Textbooks"), revealed their unabashed inculcation of anti-infidel hatred.  For example, explicit sanctioning for jihad-related beheadings is provided in a seemingly pedestrian manner: 

Studies in Theology: Tradition and Morals, Grade 11, (2001) pp. 291-92 ... This noble [Qur'anic] Surah [Surat Muhammad]... deals with questions of which the most important are as follows: 'Encouraging the faithful to perform jihad in God's cause, to behead the infidels, take them prisoner, break their power, and make their souls humble - all that in a style which contains the highest examples of urging to fight. You see that in His words: 'When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly. Then grant them their freedom or take a ransom from them, until war shall lay down its burdens.'

He sure has the hots for all things that connect to the muzzie bro`hood, doesn`t he?

So what he`s saying is our children should attend madrassahs and learn the finer points of jihad.

F*** you, Obama, and all your muslim friends, too. You`re no more fit to lead this country than my dog is. F*** off and go back to hell.

Scary!

Exactly what admirable traits do the Egyptians have that anyone should emulate?

Well, he jumped the shark on this one. Hands off our kids Obama. They're not going to become compliant little members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Geez, November 6 can't come soon enough. . . Something every day. .

I wonder how the average Egyptian feels about their revolution now...the student, business owner, the young person hoping for a better more prosperous future...

Hope of a real democracy to a MB imposed Shari law.

Economy in ruins, food shortages, alienating the USA, possible war with Israel.

Arab spring...my ass...

Seems hard to believe something this blatant was just discovered at the Cairo Airport. If it had been part of the famous “Cairo Speech” it would’ve come out a lot earlier, and been suitably damaging . What was the context of this quote?

Don’t blame the young Muslim president for making that statement. He just looses control of himself and forgets which of the 57 States. he’s in.

That is Muslim States.

Sure it would've, just like what Zer0 said in his Philly "Race" speech four years ago. /s

I’m answering my own question-—I did a little research and think I know the context of this quote. On an EGYPTIAN website posted by the president of Alexandria University, there is a compilation of quotes , obviously all delivered in the heady first days of the “Arab Spring”-—
quotes included from President of Italy, other official in Europe,etc, and of course Obama. They were all in the vein
of “We are all Egyptians today”, and “Way to go EGYPT! You are making history AGAIN!” So this could well be something Obama could easily slither out of—other voices from the “respectable West” chimed in just as he did.Obama surrogates have to do nothing other than to put it in this context, and claim that what Obama meant was to extoll the virtues of free speech and expression shown by large numbers of Egyptian youth in those early days of the Arab Spring.

here is another reference to the the quote from April of last year
http://www.city-journal.org/comments/index.php?story=6905

I don’t know if he really said it..but it is showing up at the airport ...and this is gaining momentum.

Let’s see where it goes.

I find it hard to believe this quote is for real

Austrian President Heinz Fischer : “The people of Egypt are the greatest people on earth, and they deserve a Nobel Prize for Peace”.

There is no date on this page to know when it was posted.

I wonder is someone made up a bunch of stuff and then it has become “fact”.

That has been done already in the slums of New York, Chicago, L.A., and countless other minority neighborhoods in large and small cities. And i don’t want to hear about me sounding racist. It is simply a fact that in many minority dominated places the people behave like animals. They are too!

Ah, the innocence of Egyptian youth. Yes, our children should be like them.

You’re right: at first sight all those quotes (ironically, except the Obama one we are sadly accustomed to believing)
seem a bit “cut to fit”, tailored or “badly translated” to support the current “narrative” at the time. There would be
“reason” to believe “Europe” would be that feckless and fatuous (after all, weren’t they the ones who gave Obama the Nobel Prize before he did ANYTHING to ruin his prospects of getting it forever?)

I’d vote for your dog over him.
he’s right, his fans must pull their pants up over their brown eyes, turn their hats around and buy a t-shirt that fits.

We already have! Go to the zoos in Detroit and East St Lewis and see them yourself.
