Yesterday it was widely reported that Turkey would be the Islamic country that President Hussein was going to make his loudly promised speech on Islam. That surprised me. Even though the secularists are losing ground rapidly in increasingly Islamic Turkey, I didn't think it was hardcore Islam enough for our wannabe Muslim president. I thought President Hussein would speechify from ...........Syria.
Well I might still be right. It seems President BO's speech in Turkey that Hillary announced yesterday is another speech to an Islamic country.
He wants to engage the Muslim world? The only engagement the ummah responds to is surrender, and Obama knows this. He was raised on it.
A Washington Post report on Sunday said that U.S. President Barack Obama was not expected to use the Turkey visit to deliver his anticipated address on Islam, a speech he promised during his campaign to give in a Muslim capital soon after taking office.
"Obama's stop in Turkey, announced yesterday (Saturday) in Ankara by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, partly fulfills Obama's pledge to engage the Muslim world in a substantive way within his first 100 days in office. But the president is not expected to use the Turkey visit to deliver his anticipated address on Islam, a speech he promised during his campaign to give in a Muslim capital soon after taking office," the newspaper said.
The two events are totally different from each other, a senior official told the newspaper on the condition of anonymity, adding that the place or the date for President Obama's address to the Muslim world was not set yet.
