Obama intends to renew his Muslim outreach to the ummah. Renew? Uh, when did he stop?
You mean Osama bin Laden's elaborate Islamic burial wasn't enough?
Wasn't Obama's last submission tour to the Muslim world enough?
I contend that the American people are sick of this submission. The President of the United States should not be prostrating himself for a supremacist ideology whose objective is to destroy and dominate us.
The Muslim world should be doing the outreach to Coptic Christians in Egypt, to Jews in Israel and across the world, to Christians in Indonesia, Nigeria, Timor, Thailand, Bangladesh, Kenya, Chechnya, etc., Hindus in India, non-Muslims in Pakistan, women, children ........ their idea of outreach is "dawah" (proselytizing).
President to Renew Muslim Outreach Wall Street Journal (hat tip Van)
WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama is preparing a fresh outreach to the Muslim world in coming days, senior U.S. officials say, one that will ask those in the Middle East and beyond to reject Islamic militancy in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death and embrace a new era of relations with the U.S.
Mr. Obama is preparing to deliver that message in a wide-ranging speech, perhaps as early as next week, these officials say. The president intends to argue that bin Laden's death, paired with popular uprisings sweeping North Africa and the Middle East, signal that the time has come to an end when al Qaeda could claim to speak for Muslim aspirations.
Mr. Obama, who has made outreach to the Muslim world a cornerstone of his presidency, plans to describe the Islamic world as at a crossroads, said U.S. officials, making the case that bin Laden represented a failed approach of the past while populist movements brewing in the Middle East and North Africa represent the future.
