I don’t mean to prophesy doom and gloom, folks…
…but I call it as I see it.
STOP! Before you start thinking that this is a “YEAH, OBAMA’S A MUSLIM!” post, allow me to tell you that it is not. This is not about his middle name, the fact that he has Islamic roots, or any of that nonsense. This is about future policy.
President Barack Obama on Tuesday chose an Arabic satellite TV network for his first formal television interview as president, delivering a message to the Muslim world that “Americans are not your enemy.
We aren’t? Then why is the Arabic world staying almost completely silent as a radical sect of their religion are beheading our citizens on videotape, attacking our troops, flying planes into our buildings, and generally spreading terror throughout the world?
Are they seemingly condoning these actions because we’re old college roommates, and this is their way of getting back in touch?
The interview underscored Obama’s commitment to repair relations with the Muslim world that have suffered under the previous administration.
The implication here is that President Bush is responsible for damaging relations with the Muslim world.
I seem to recall us minding our own business, getting along just great, and then two flying objects crashing into some kind of large structures in a major city…
But, hey…that’s such a vague memory. I don’t remember the details. Who remembers what happened more than 24 hours ago, right? All I know is that Bush started this whole thing. He must have!
…or liberal media outlets love to paint America as the bad guy whenever conservatives occupy the Oval Office. To point out the fact that we have now had over seven years without another terrorist attack on our soil would be counterproductive to the cause. Bush is the reason for the collapsing war in Iraq, the stock market crash of ’87, Hitler’s march through Europe, the American Civil War, the fall of Rome, and Eve biting in to the forbidden fruit.
“My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy,” Obama told the Saudi-owned, Dubai-based Al-Arabiya news channel.
IT’S NOT OUR JOB TO COMMUNICATE TO THE ARAB WORLD THAT THEY’RE NOT OUR ENEMIES.
It’s THEIR job to prove that we’re not enemies.
Stop promoting terrorism. Stop condoning suicide bombers walking into pizza parlors in Israel and blowing women and children to bits (actions which are forgotten when Israel retaliates in Gaza). Stop having riots in the street any time someone draws a cartoon portraying your religion in a way that doesn’t tickle your fancy. Stop living in the 6th century. Stop treating your women like crap. Stop, stop, stop!
But that’s not what will happen. It’s American Joe’s job to be more understanding. It’s American Susie’s job to see Islam the way they want us to see it. It’s American Carl’s job to allow the annihilation of Israel. It’s American Tina’s job to roll over and either convert to Islam or die.
Welcome to new policy. It’s gonna be a blast (hopefully not literally).
