I believe that also.
This is Act II of the tragedy that began on 9-11 (including the mysterious shorting of airline stocks that has never been explained).
In fact, the attack may include another economic warfare component, just as it did on 9-11.
Oh, thnx for posting that quote. Millions got to hear it. Ha!
“Obama bows in obeyance to King Saud but not the Queen of England”

You just know that this picture is being sent to Iran, Syria, etc. We just became the biggest joke of all, thanks to this ignorant, stupid man.
Look at the others standing there. Sarkozy has a wtf look and is laughing. The others standing beside the monkey eared Kenyan are watching him kiss the hand and they look stunned.
Reminded me of this old adam sandler skit from a while back. I think it was called “They’re all gonna laugh at you!!”
Seriously though, if all this chit Otard is doing wasn’t so damn scary, it would be hilarious. I like seeing him implode, I just pray he doesn’t take us all down with him
Michelle Malkin has been on top of this from the start:
Verrrrrry strange that Drudge and Hannity have not mentioned it.
Obeisance is not only deference. Besides, making salaam is itself Arabic, culturally speaking. However, obeisance implies homage and odedience. Subjects bow to their kings.
Also from freedictionary:
o·bei·sance (-bsns, -b-)
1. A gesture or movement of the body, such as a curtsy, that expresses deference or homage.
2. An attitude of deference or homage.
[Middle English obeisaunce, from Old French obeissance, from obeissant, present participle of obeir, to obey; see obey.
Did he also curtesy to the queen?
I hope he wipes his chin.....
This is embarrassing to say the least. We don’t bow to anyone. We offer a FIRM handshake and thats it. See tag.
Really good article and video and photo analysis of incident:
Rusty Humphries has been going on for more than an hour about the Kenyan bowing to the King
My point was that what is done in Japan is derived from historical context. The context that I put it in was the faux paux Obie did..... in relation to muslim culture.
Even our military salute is derived from a form of submission (showing you are unarmed). The junior or subordinate renders a salute.... the senior replies.
Is shaking hands considered submissive? No, because the connotations are such both parties are on equal terms. Is a (slight) bow of two parties in Japan (or Asia in general)submissive? No, because the parties are on equal terms.
Is bowing lower than an asian person (or removing your eyes) submissive? yes.
Is bowing to a muslim submissive? YES.
It has an entirely different connotation in modern Japanese culture. One doesn't bow to another, two people bow to each other
Your premise that there was "nothing submissive" is only partially correct. It depends on the context the bow was given. A military, or DOS, member bowing slightly to a Japanese person (that bows the same level as you) is a sign of acknowledgement.
Bowing deeper than the person acknowledges the receiver has a higher status than you.... the same as rendering a salute to a person of higher rank (similar to saluting allied nations, or hostile while in captivity).
Bowing to a muslim is nearly the same as worshiping or groveling as the Qu'ran indicates all are created equal. The mention of bowing is to allah.
Remember when everyone made the big fuss over the Australian PM giving President Bush the friendly "salute?" There bas a huge "ordeal" that the PM was Bush's lieutenant or second in command ("the next Tony Blair")
As for the rest, I did NOT make the claim that Barry was correct to do what he did, nor did I claim that it didn't have cultural significance. never accused you of such; however the demeanor of your post I responded to indicated as such.
Its Jed.....Uncle Jed....and he’s got a bigger cement pond than 0Bama
Good news...wish it would make the Post front cover tomorrow.
As they all are.
Lets hope the pilot of air force 1 does us all a favor and does the right thing over the Atlantic on the way home.
good for her and hopefully others will follow it up
Not a peep from the media thus far and yet when they met the Queen which was botched I might add that was shown in a positive light
You mean the man at the king's left? He looked like an interpreter. And he looked like he was blindsided by the gesture; like he expected to translate some pleasantries, and the bow was so weird to him he didn't know what to make of it for a moment.
Why? He may be your president but he is not mine.
You can still find the web page for the saudi site, with the photo of 0bama, by entering the url in google search and selecting “cached.”
See Post #645 -
Front Page of Saudi Gazette shows Obama bowing to Saudi King... No text or caption, but the picture speaks for itself... Especially in the Muslim world...
I grabbed a screen shot of the Front Page of the Saudi Gazette before they renewed their content for Friday...
You can bet this picture will be shown all OVER the Middle East... I had to take a break, but I’ll be scanning some of the other major papers and such in the Middle East — nothing really showing on Google, or Yahoo News Searches...
Kind of a slip when I said that, I’m in shock.
I’ve not acknowledged him as my president either. In fact, I truly believe him to be a usurper.
Kissing the ring is how you show respect to the POPE, not some raghead despot.
GWB holding hands with the Saudi king on the White House grounds is one thing, as it showed alliance and solidarity. Bowing is admitting subservience.
God save the USA.
Right. The Saudi king isn’t even a member of the Muslim clergy.
Thanks! I hadn’t thought of that!
[I do have the entire screen shot saved on my computer, as well as a “complete web page”, I saved it all before I cropped it. :) ]
Frankly not too surprised either; I’ve prepared for the worst after witnessing his demeaning and disrespecting the White House and office by strolling on Leno, running his mouth, slouching around the Oval Office without a proper dress code, or his ghetto rat wife sleaveless at his State of The Screwed Union speech. This is a joke, this is the beginning.
He’s in his element now, he’ll be abroad as a “citizen of the world” which he’s been all along who holds no qualms about selling out U.S. sovereignty or our Constitution.
He purposely was kissing the Saudi’s ass. He doesn’t care what people in the U.S. think. He’s offering his friendship and “understanding” to at least the Sunni Muslim world. Although how all Muslims view this is less clear, as Bin Laden is not a fan of the Saudi kingdom, either is Iran.
Oh but “he’s black” so say the media conformist fools with their packaged ethnocentric viewpoint for America. He’s an international raised in the largest Muslim country in the world and traveled abroad with foreign roots. That’s why his natural-born citizenship was such a big deal and a foreign father and foreign allegiences and the founding father’s intentions on the Constitution blah blah blah. Nobody cares, not important, move along.
Journalism’s dead, the law’s dead, in fact; let’s get Biblical, shall we??
This country has been blanketed by demonic forces in the form of a dark cloud of confusion that has led to an immature, irresponsible, incompetent, ignorant, uninformed and unaware populace. Real leaders with character are getting harder to find. Nobody’s at the helm, nobody’s running things, leadership has been broken, corruption and treachery everywhere.
The key word here is WISDOM. It’s fallen by the wayside.
Zero’s going to keep moving fast, he knows he doesn’t have much time. Leaders are going to be needed to reign this clown in via the Constitution and the military will be forced to intervene. Won’t surprise me when they run against the modern day Hessian soldiers and mercenaries from foreign lands Zero will pit us against.
We have witnessed Husseins first display of humility, and it was before a muslim dictator.
“None of the MSM have bothered to report on this”
Can you IMAGINE the wrath that would befall ANYONE in the Major US Media that dars to be the first to report this to the Sheeple???
The Newsroom heads are probably afraid that the American Military would go in to open revolt.
Post of the.........(day, month, year.....).... Thought I knew what I was going to say.........JD. Ping...waterhill,mylife,all
Post of the.........(day, month, year.....).... Thought I knew what I was going to say.........Just D%mn!.
Well you noticed the subjection too.
I am glad I am not alone
And everyday I hate that socialist-fascist-commie pig usurper piece of trash more so than the previous day.
Oboooomba & his butt ass ugly wife Michelle are nothing but lowlife f__kin POS's. There is no other way to describe them other than profuse swearing & vulgarity!!!
Interesting times,........you are not alone. There are many of us......
“I’m actually sick to my stomach.”
I don’t know how to make this any plainer.
This is an insult, an arrogant slap in the face, to every single American that has ever served, fought for, or been buried under, the flag of this nation.
AMERICANS DO NOT BOW DOWN BEFORE KINGS. PERIOD.
We fought a Revolutionary War, and another war in 1812 over that, remember?
It was one of the first things that was taught to me in elementary school history classes. Have we really forgotten what it means to be an American now?
WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE??!!!! (other than MINE)
I was going back over my pings, and ran across my post to you. I realized I forgot to put in the link! I hope you found it on the thread, but if not, here is the link;
[The bow happens about 45-50 seconds into the video]
Sorry about that...
Hopefully it will help you to know there are at least 793 posts of outrage on this thread, thereby showing you that you are definitely NOT alone. Google it, you will find more.
The man bowed before and humbled himself with what appears to be a religious brother...while no one else in the video did.
The outrage is all over the postings here at Free Republic and other conservative sites. Of course the deranged, left-wing, Obooooomba-shilling media is doing all they can to ignore any reports that would embarrass their lying POS usurper commie pig Oboooomba.
AMERICANS DO NOT BOW DOWN BEFORE KINGS. PERIOD.
We fought a Revolutionary War, and another war in 1812 over that, remember?
I think it is fast approaching the time that a 2nd American Revolution will be needed to throw out this socialist-fascist-commie usurper along with the rest of the anti-American demoRAT socialists and most of Congress & the corrupted liberal/left-wing judiciary as well.
Roses said, “We have witnessed Husseins first display of humility, and it was before a muslim dictator.”
I hadn’t thought of it in exactly that way... And it’s all I’ve been thinking about today to tell you the honest truth...
You’re absolutely right though... The way you phrased it puts it into the best context. Short and sweet. It’s actually the perfect “soundbite” to go with this.
If only the GOP would actually USE the ammunition sitting in front of them... Get on the news shows and call him on this... The GOP can get the MSM to cover this — if they wanted to. The picture speaks for itself and no matter what kind of spin they try to put on this I think the majority of people will see it for exactly what it is...
The liberals wouldn’t even give it a second thought to use this against a Conservative Leader — they did it with Bush and all he did was show EQUAL respect for the PRINCE (whom he has probably known since childhood, BTW)...
I think this is probably one of the most egregious cases of MSM bias I have ever seen, personally... Drudge should have his siren up, and the picture should be at the very top. This should’ve been on ALL the national news broadcasts tonight, and it should’ve been on Leno, and Kimmel, it should be “above the fold” on every morning front page, all the Morning Shows, etc... etc... AND, if there was no bias in the media it would probably stay in the news for DAYS - at least...
The way people are viewing this it could possibly be a rallying point — kind of like Sarah’s selection... If the “elite leaders” in Washington & the GOP are too scared to talk about this, there are things we can do... Letters to the Editor, Hard Copy Letters or some kind of a flyer to friends, family, neighbors, columnists, etc... ???
I’m just throwing out ideas here. As I said, if the leaders of the GOP, or other Conservative Leaders won’t do something, WE THE PEOPLE, need to step up and do it ourselves...
“Verrrrrry strange that Drudge and Hannity have not mentioned it.”
1)- This started rolling late in the day, after show prep for these people was already done, or well under way.
2)- NO ONE wants to be the first in America to break this, without someone else doing it FIRST. THEY don’t want to get the hate-filled wrath of the left on this, and they have seen what has happened to Kramer and Santelli.
This will rightly OUTRAGE anyone who has ever served in the Uniform of the United States.
The muslim world will eat this up, they are totally into such nuance — especially the way the most perverted British Royal Family ever allowed the Obama to diss them.
You are DEFINITELY NOT ALONE! As Kim said, there are at least hundreds of thousands of folks all over the “Conservative” web outraged as well. This is not some stupid little mistake...
See my post at #796.
The “left” at least those at DU (the only pure liberal site I’ve looked at today) are actually trying to tell their people that this is a PHOTOSHOP! It could even expose the “leaders” of their little grassroots communities as complete and total liars if we can somehow get the video out on National TV.
People need to see the video, frankly... We need a TV ad or something (if we could even get it accepted by the networks).
