His personal commitment? Perhaps Obama will come clean. One thing is fosho, Obama exonerated me from every vile leftwing accusation during the run up to the election. He proved everything I said to be true.
Will Obama be the first Muslim leader in history to be kind to the Jews and infidels? Color me skeptical.
Obama speech to offer personal commitment to Muslims AFP (hat tip Susan)
President Barack Obama will offer a "personal commitment" to bridge US differences with Muslims in his long-awaited speech to the Islamic world next week in Egypt, aides said.
But White House advisors said Friday that Obama would not shy away from addressing "tough issues" in the speech on Thursday at the University of Cairo which will be co-hosted by Al-Azhar University, an ancient center of Islam and learning.
"The speech will outline his personal commitment to engagement, based upon mutual interests and mutual respect," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.
I don't respect persecution of Christians, honor killings, clitorectomies, shariah law, Jew hatred, 911...........................
"He will discuss how the United States and Muslim communities around the world can bridge some of the differences that have divided them.
UPDATE: Must we respect this too, Hussein Obama?
On May 10th, 2008, Egypt's Culture Minister, Faruq Hosni, a candidate to become UNESCO's director general, said following a question by an opposition deputy in parliament,
"I'd burn Israeli books myself if I found any in libraries in Egypt."
UPDATE: Airlift of 3,000 Secret Servicemen to Cairo to secure Obama speech to Muslims
DEBKAfile Special Report May 31, 2009, 8:51 AM (GMT+02:00)
US president Barack Obama has not yet decided whether his historic speech reaching out to the Muslim world will be delivered on June 4 from a lecture hall at Al Azhar University in Cairo or its main mosque, DEBKAfile's Middle East sources report. If the second, his address will take place in the presence of Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa, the Sunni Muslim world's greatest religious authority. In any event, Al Azhar is the most eminent school of Islamic learning in the world and the US president therefore expects its impact to far outweigh his first address to Muslims from Istanbul.
His arrival from a meeting with Saudi King Abdullah in Riyadh on June 3 is planned to add extra weight to Obama's dramatic outreach to Muslims, since the king officiates as Custodian of the Holy Places to Islam.
Radical Muslims will therefore have all the more reason for rejecting it.
Giant transports have been landing at Cairo airport, unloading a fleet of armored vehicles, White House helicopters, counter-terror weapons and the vanguard of the 3,000 Secret Service officers backed by CIA and FBI personnel who will secure the US president during his stay in Egypt. Cairo will soon be in turmoil as forces are deployed from a command center at the American Embassy to control sections of downtown Cairo, with guard posts on the Nile River's banks, the international airport, main railway terminals and approaches to the city.
Some 30,000 Egyptian security personnel including army units stationed in Cairo have been placed on special duty until the American president leaves. Their names and those of the welcoming party at Al Azhar University were submitted to the US presidential security center.
