ANKARA, Turkey — President Obama formally began his outreach to the Muslim world on Monday when he spoke before Turkey’s Parliament, telling legislators that the United States “is not and never will be at war with Islam.”
How does he know?
“The United States has been enriched by Muslim-Americans,” he said. “Many other Americans have Muslims in their family, or have lived in a Muslim-majority country.
Can someone name one?
“I know,” he said, “because I am one of them.”
Introduced as “Barack Hussein Obama,”
Was McCain there to demand an apology?
“It is also clear that the greatest monument to Ataturk’s life is not something that can be cast in stone and marble,” Mr. Obama said during his speech, “His greatest legacy is Turkey’s strong and secular democracy, and that is the work that this assembly carries on today.”
Has anyone told Obamie that Turkey's PM just demanded NATO reject a Dane as NATO leader becauuse of the cartoon of Mohammed that the Muslim world used as an excuse to be insulted and riot?
During the Parliament speech, Mr. Obama did speak of the Armenia issue, saying that “history unresolved can be a heavy weight.”
“Our country,” he said, “still struggles with the legacy of our past treatment of Native Americans.”
Atta boy Obamie. Your country wrong and wrong.
