Beyond pandering: this guy is a sucker. The Turks saw him coming:
The United States of America is a Judeo-Christian nation. That is an incontrovertible FACT. A historic FACT. A REAL fact.
So we are not at war with Islam? But here is the response Jefferson and Adams received in their day:Â Â Â Â
“Several muslim countries along the North African coast had established the tradition of plundering the ships of European and American merchants in the western Mediterranean and eastern Atlantic, capturing the crews and then demanding ransom from the respective governments for their release. In a joint message to their superiors in Congress, Adams and Jefferson described the audacity of these terrorist attacks, pirates leaping onto defenseless ships with daggers clenched in their teeth. They had asked the ambassador from Tripoli, Adams and Jefferson explained, on what grounds these outrageous acts of unbridled savagery could be justified: “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of the prophet, that it was written in their koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their [islams] authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners….”
The only thing that has changed is Islam has killed even more Americans, I guess hope&change did not notice those killed from the first WTC bombing, to Adam Klinghoffer, to the bombing of the Cole or the blowing up of our Marines in Beirut, to 911 or Iran making sophisticated IED’s to blow up our kids in Iraq, and now Afghanistan. Sure we are not at war with Islam…but they are at war with us. And do you know what happens when you are in a war that one side acknowledges, but the other side does not? You have already lost, but then no wonder you bowed like a little bitch to the King of Saudi Arabia.
