Here is the whole transcript of Barack Hussein's interview with French television:
The Muslim world does not care about the way we think. They want us to be Muslims.
Educating ourselves more effectively on Islam? If Americans would do that, one of two things will happen. They will start blogs like mine or write books like those of Bat Ye'or, Spencer, Bostom, etc., or they will convert to Islam. That is the truth.
Indonesia: 200 million Muslims. India: 156 million Muslims. Pakistan: 150 million Muslims. United States: 2.3 million Muslims.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, you know, I think the most important thing I want to tell young people is that, regardless of your faith, those who build as opposed to those who destroy I think leave a lasting legacy, not only for themselves but also for their nations. And the impulse towards destruction as opposed to how can we study science and mathematics and restore the incredible scientific and knowledge -- the output that came about during centuries of Islamic culture --
What output? Obama is revising history yet again.
The Pope quoted a 14th century Byzantine Christian Emperor as saying: "Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."
THE PRESIDENT: -- I think that has to -- I think that has to be lifted up. And you're seeing some countries I think that are making more investments in education. I think the importance of educating women has to be something that's emphasized. If you look at indicators of human development across the board, those where girls are getting a chance for an education end up being more economically productive. How to reconcile this with some of the traditional values and norms of Islam, that's not for me to dictate, but certainly I think it's something that can be accomplished, and I want to encourage that.
America built those schools for girls, pious Muslims are bombing them. That's what Obama calls "reconciling the traditional values and norms of Islam"? Burkas and bombings? How vile. He goes on to say it's not for him to dictate (submission), but he thinks he can dictate the expulsion of Jews from Jewish homeland?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, you know, this is a start of what I think will be a long-term process. We'll have a speech, we'll have a roundtable discussion. It will give an opportunity I think for people around the world to engage in this discussion. It will be telecast in a wide variety of languages on our White House Web site, whitehouse.gov. And my hope is, is that as a consequence you start seeing discussions not just at the presidential level, but at every level of life. And I hope I can spark some dialogue and debate within the Muslim world, because I think there's a real struggle right now between those who believe that Islam is irreconcilable to modern life and those who believe that actually Islam has always been able to move side by side with progress.
Show me in history with whom Islam moved side by side.
