"In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as 'one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.' He sought to downplay the expectations of the speech, but he said he hoped the address would raise awareness about Muslims."
As usual, Barack H. Obama is wrong.
The more we become aware of Muslims, the scarier -- and more barbaric -- they become.In terms of the number of Muslims, the USA ranks 38th on the list -- Indonesia is the largest (and a democracy) and Pakistan (marginally democratic) is the 2d largest.
Apparently, we are not a Christian nation (Obama's words) but we are now a Muslim nation? This is another sign of nitwittery on Obama's part. The man is always described as very bright, but where is the evidence for that???!!!
He says one idiotic thing after another (e.g., the U.S. has "57 states," his uncle "liberated Auschwitz," 10,000 people died in tornadoes in which only 12 were killed, FDR spoke on TV, etc.), but he is held to no standards of accuracy or intellectual coherence. Frankly, possessing a baritone voice is not synonymous with intelligence.
We can be sure of one thing in his Egypt speech. He will not emphasize -- perhaps not even mention -- that Islamo-fascists around the world have been responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths, including the murders on 9/11 in the US and 7/07 in Great Britain.
He cannot speak honestly -- truthfully -- to Muslims because to do so would "offend" them. Yes, he will deliver his speech in Egypt, but it might as well be on Fantasy Island.
Comment on above by Jill, an activist in Hawaii:
Steve - I've been saying (to anyone who will listen to me) since day one that we have no proof of Obama's so-called "brilliance." His syncophants & the MSM paint him that way, but based on what? We have no evidence from his school records (because they are sealed) or his work in law. Maybe because he was a brilliant community organizer????? I've said all along that O is a media prop who is being fed information - TOTUS is running our country. I want to know who the man behind the screen is!!!
