Monash lecturer Waleed AlyÂ once moreÂ lavishly praisesÂ Barack Obama for doing what Aly ignored when done by George Bush: “Obama sheathes his sword and bows in respect to the Muslim world”
Obama said America’s relationship with the Muslim world was not just based on opposition to (Muslim) terrorism? Here’s Bush:Â
We respect the vibrant faith of Islam . . . ByÂ working together to advance mutual understanding, we point the way to a brighter future for all.
Obama praised Iran’s civilisation? Here’s Bush:Â
…the people of the United States respects the people of Iran; thatÂ we respect the traditions of Iran, the great history of Iran.
Muslims love suckers:
