Obama speaking in Egypt: “assalaamu alaykum”

Complete transcript of Barack H. Obama’s speech.

“I am also proud to carry with me the goodwill of the American people, and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: assalaamu alaykum.”

Never in history has a president of the United States “addressed Islam.” Odd, he was not addressing another country, but Islam, saying at the beginning:

“I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world…..” (a country and a religion?). And he continues with a speech riddled with religious references and many quotes from the Koran, and I believe only one time quoting from the Bible, and once from the Talmud.

“The people of the world can live together in peace. We know that is God’s vision. Now, that must be our work here on Earth. Thank you. And may God’s peace be upon you.”

More mixing of “church and state” than I have ever heard, except you can’t say “church,” but what would you say? “Mosque and state?”

And he denies it, but I predict Israel will go under the Obama bus before it is over with.

    Have you read this yet?


    the last paragraph of the article, an excerpt from her thesis.

    “Fourth, she asserted that Muñoz Marín’s economic program, called Operation Bootstrap, failed primarily because Puerto Ricans continued to think of themselves as colonials. This, like the reference to the US Congress as the ‘North American’ Congress, was 1970s-trendy dependency theory rhetoric, but was wholly unsupported by the evidence that she presented in the thesis (and, indeed, by virtually any evidence that has appeared since that time).”

    Why does this remind me of Black Liberation Theology?

    Bella, can’t wait for the blow by blow tonight with the “analists” disecting what was said, how it wss rec’d & what it all means….in other words darn little Fact, just their opinions….

    I think it’s safe to go ahead and say Barack Hussein Obama now without getting your arms and legs broken. But to me there seems to be enough in this speech to make everybody mad. “why can’t we all just get along?” lol.

    But if IT is any measure of the way all sides can discuss things and not resort to personal attacks, we can just forget about that little pie in the sky dream. And we’re only talking about five or six people, not the whole entire world. lol.

    I hear ya! can’t wait for the crank to sing praises to Allah tonight…..


  5. Bella, MsM.

    Check out Cinie’s World.

    This is interesting Highly
    recommend this read because it isn’t being discussed anywhere I have
    been reading about the Cairo Speech. When Did Obama become Spokesman in
    Chief for Islam, where is that in the Job description of the United
    States of America President?

    When did it become his DUTY to knock down negative attacks on Islam? Somebody dust off the constitution the ACTING President needs to have it read to him…maybe someone could load the U.S. Constitution into TOTUS?

    Seperation of church and state anyone?

    MsM, Ree, Sara:

    Or “separation of mosque and state” is more like it.

    The first time you hear his speeches, they sound wonderful and inspiring, but on closer look, you can see what he is really saying and it ain’t good.

    I was just re-reading this post I made during the campaign in response to his “patriot” speech. One example in that speech: he was talking about a “band” of colonists and tribes and lineage. I now see where he got that – it’s directly from that quote he made from the Koran in this current speech.

    Here’s another quote from the “patriot” speech:

    “It is why, for me, patriotism is always more than just loyalty to a place on a map or a certain kind of people…..” Huh? Think about that one for a minute.

    O. M. G. = I did not catch this. Just picked it up from Cinie’s post.

    “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” (emphasis mine/actually Cinie’s)
