Obama To Address Muslim World

U.S president Barack Obama plans to ''reach out'' to the Muslim world through a speech to be delivered in Egypt next month, where he will speak about relations past and present between America and Muslims, aswell as ''common values'' shared by Americans and the islamic world (what those values there are beats me).

"(It will demonstrate) how we can work together to ensure the safety and security and the future wellbeing through hope and opportunity of the children of this country and of the Muslim world," Said a White House spokesman, before going on to say "(It will demonstrate) how we can work together to ensure the safety and security and the future wellbeing through hope and opportunity of the children of this country and of the Muslim world...".

Well that's nice of him isn't it? Yh right!. Here we go again, Obama, the biggest crap-talker of the 21st century so far, intent on spewing out another one of this deceptive Mr. Nice Guy speeches to thousands of naive on-lookers, and once he's finished showering his spectators with fancy, kind words, brainwashing the masses, he retreats back to base, and from behind the walls of the White House, he shows his true colours.

For arguements sake, lets take our minds back to Obama's speech in Turkey:

''I know there have been difficulties these last few years. I know that the trust that binds us has been strained, and I know that strain is shared in many places where the Muslim faith is practiced. Let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject.

But I also want to be clear that America’s relationship with the Muslim work cannot and will not be based on opposition to al Qaeda. Far from it. We seek broad engagement based upon mutual interests and mutual respect. We will listen carefully, bridge misunderstanding, and seek common ground. We will be respectful, even when we do not agree. And we will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better – including my own country. The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their family, or have lived in a Muslim-majority country – I know, because I am one of them.

Above all, we will demonstrate through actions our commitment to a better future. We want to help more children get the education that they need to succeed. We want to promote health care in places where people are vulnerable. We want to expand the trade and investment that can bring prosperity for all people. In the months ahead, I will present specific programs to advance these goals. Our focus will be on what we can do, in partnership with people across the Muslim world, to advance our common hopes, and our common dreams. And when people look back on this time, let it be said of America that we extended the hand of friendship.''

So, Mr.President, where was that ''respect'' when you launched an attack on pakistan that killed several civilians? An attack carried out when you didn't even have the permission of the Pakistani authorities, an attack that wasn't even a one off. Where was this ''respect'' during your presidential campaign, where you and your team delibaretly kept Muslim women in headscarves out of photographs at a Detroit event?

People, do not be fooled by Obama.

assalaamu alaykum, ya know, when the elections were going on and Obama was all about "change has come" and many ppl (many muslims) were chanting that with him. Well i too did think he will prolly be better and all but then i realized "Allah does not change the condition of people until they change it themselves".
