Obama is going to Qatar to get back to his roots, I suspect, and "boost ties" with the Muslim world again. Why don't the Muslims boost ties with us? Boost as in apology for centuries of jihadi wars, enslavements, exterminations, Jew-hatred not boost as in blast.
Why doesn't the Muslim world take stock, and stop their relentless imperialism campaigns, their violence and murder of non-Muslims and live side-by-side with non-Muslims? Because they can't. It is forbidden in their religion. EXPUNGE THOSE VILE TEXTS FROM THE KORAN.
Obama is going on the charm offensive to Muslim states at a forum in Qatar. What's he going to do, bring a couple of sacrificial dead Jews to the banquet? That'll score huge ululululululululs.
WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama’s charm offensive on Muslim states comes to a weekend forum in Qatar, where he will send a video message and his chief diplomat will give a speech, organizers said Thursday.
Obama will deliver his message to the seventh annual US-Islamic World Forum in the Qatari capital, which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will attend Sunday with other senior US officials, The Brookings Institution said.
The gathering organized by the think-tank’s Saban Center for Middle East Policy and Qatar’s foreign affairs ministry brings “leaders from across the Muslim world for an intensive three-day dialogue with key US officials, societal leaders and policy experts,” Brookings said.
“With President Obama determined to turn the page in America’s relations with Muslim communities around the globe, this year’s Forum will examine how to craft more robust partnerships that can help repair the deep divisions our societies,” Brookings President Strobe Talbott said in a statement.
Talbott, who was a key diplomat in president Bill Clinton’s administration, is also due at the forum, along with Richard Holbrooke, the US envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan and Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kerry.
Brookings said Clinton will join Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem al-Thani, the prime minister of Qatar who doubles as foreign minister, in delivering a speech, but no further details were immediately available.[...]
A year into his administration, Obama has yet to achieve any significant momentum on stalled peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis, and Muslim audiences are now less receptive to his promise of a “new beginning” with the Muslim world.
Ah, the sacrificial Jews.............. we knew that was coming. Islamic Jew-hatred must be slaked.
The visit to Qatar would complement the Obama administration’s efforts to improve ties with the Muslim world.
In his inauguration speech last year, Obama vowed to seek a “new way forward” with the Muslim world “based on mutual interest and mutual respect,” after eight rocky years under his predecessor George W. Bush.
