Obama Gives {Islamist} Erdogan the 'Hug Treatment'
weeklystandard.com ^ | 11/3/11 | staff-blog

Posted on 11/03/2011 1:03:35 PM PDT by drpix

An interesting bit from White House reporter Tangi Quéméner's latest pool report from the G-20 in Cannes, France:

[President Obama] entered the room at 1:15 and took to his left, heading to Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy. They chatted for a few seconds before British Prime minister David Cameron joined them. Hard to understand what they were saying amid the cameras noise. POTUS then took a stroll to Australian Premier Julia Gillard who got a hug as European president Herman van Rompuy, European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso and Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan were watching. Eventually the Europeans got a handshake but Erdogan got the hug treatment.

To appreciate why Obama gave him a hug rather than a handshake, here are some quotes from Mr. Erdogan:

"Mosques are our barracks, minarets our bayonets, domes our helmets, the believers our soldiers."

"There is no moderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s that”

"{Democracy is like a tram/bus:} You ride it until you arrive at your destination, then you step off."

"Assimilation is a crime against humanity..."

“{Democracy is like a tram/bus:} You ride it until you arrive at your destination, then you step off.”

They’re playin’ the US for all it’s worth, then they will step off because Islam is Islam.

Can’t we all see that we are in deep trouble?

“O” reverting to type! Or...maybe there wasn’t room to bow.

honestly, people not putting the dots together here is due to 1) our media not giving them any info to do so and 2) some small% of folks will be willfully blind no matter what this guy does.

The big problem, though, is the media.

“Birds of a feather clump together!!!!”

As for commentator Stephen Schwartz, he is himself a muslim (islamic name, Suleyman Ahmad al-Kosovi) and a gold-plated Serbophobe:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Suleyman_Schwartz

What he says about Erdogan is pretty much true, except he leaves out that Erdogan is a Serbophobe, too. (Don’t let Erdogan’s feigned friendship with Serbia’s current quisling government fool you.)

We should have taken the Serbophobes and quislings (that includes the quisling obama) out with the trash years ago!!!!

It looks like Obama is whispering into his ear, “Was it good for you?”

Maybe someone needs to file a sexual harassment suit against the RAT bastard commie pig 0dumb0, for inappropriate touching.

Or better yet, just a solid roundhouse hard right to the jaw of that smug arrogant kenyan bastard!

There is a rumour that the stories about Iran are a smokescreen, and that Turkey is set to strike against Syria.

A rumour every minute in the Middle East, of course. But I mention it FWIW.

Is Obama going to bring the “Arab Spring” to Turkey? Ergogan can be replaced by someone more like Obama’s Muslim/Marxist roots. Sic ‘em, Barry.

Ergogan and Obama are partners in forming the new caliphate, IMO.

You may be right, but . . . with Zer0, he says one thing and does the other. Gaddafi thought he was friends with Barry. We saw what Barry did to Gaddafi. If I was any kind of leader, I'd trust Barry as far as I could throw the Queen Mary's anchor (and I can't even lift one of the anchor chain links).

Also, Erdogan is a Turk and they're really not too enthused about Ahmadinejad and the Iranians (Persians). I don't know if it's an ethnic thing or a Sunni vs. Shiite thing. For now it might be an alliance of convenience, but neither the Turks or Iranians trust one another, IMHO.
