Scary stuff from Weasel Zippers, who thinks its quite “Sowjetish”- me thinks its worse…
Â it is quite astounding that the mainstream liberal media â€”Â NY Times,Â Washington Post, NPR, PBS,Â Time,Â Newsweek, etc. â€” has simply offered no substantive criticism of Obama’s flips on renditions, military tribunals, wiretaps, intercepts, Iraq, or â€” given their past fury over the Bush deficits â€” the Obama plan to run up more red ink in a year than Bush did in eight.

To Obama, “the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution”

Obama: “If I had a Muslim summit, I think that I can speak credibly to them about the fact that I respect their culture”
And in the topsy-turvy world in which we live, that is what the learned analysts believe must be done. One region of the world is rife with calls to conquer and subjugate another region, and with prayers that the supreme being rain death and destruction upon its foes. And so the threatened region, instead of calling upon the belligerents to drop their aggressive rhetoric and teach their people the virtues of living at peace with others rather than trying to destroy or enslave them, vows to show more “respect” to the belligerents.
Yeah. That’ll fix it.
“Obama ‘Distracted’ by Biden’s ‘Indiscipline,’ Book Asserts,” by Bill Sammon forÂ FOXNews.com, May 20 (thanks to JW):
Obama, who will travel to Egypt next month to give a major speech to the Muslim world, told Wolffe he wants to convene a “Muslim summit.””If I had a Muslim summit, I think that I can speak credibly to them about the fact that I respect their culture,” Obama said, “that I understand their religion, that I have lived in a Muslim country, and as a consequence I know it is possible to reconcile Islam with modernity and respect for human rights and a rejection of violence. And I think I can speak with added credibility.”
Living in a Muslim country produces, as a “consequence,” the certainty that Islam can be reconciled with “modernity and respect for human rights and a rejection of violence”? Then why do so many Muslims who have never lived anywhere except in Muslim countries believe so fervently that Islam rejects Western notions of human rights and sanctions violence?
