    This man is a idiot no Presdient has ever done this during our 2 1/3 centuries as a country.

    Also some of you Obama supporters explain this to me and let me know how our history books could have possibly missed this.

    Obama Says Islam Has Shaped The U.S.A.


    Robert Spencer, writing at Front Page Magazine comments on Obama's statement to the Turkish Parliament, "We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world -- including in my own country."

    Undeniably the Islamic faith has done a great deal to shape the world -- a statement that makes no value judgment about exactly how it has shaped the world. It has formed the dominant culture in what is known as the Islamic world for centuries. But what on earth could Obama mean when he says that Islam has also "done so much" to shape his own country?

    Unless he considers himself an Indonesian, Obama’s statement was extraordinarily strange. After all, how has the Islamic faith shaped the United States? Were there Muslims along Paul Revere’s ride, or standing next to Patrick Henry when he proclaimed, "Give me liberty or give me death"? Were there Muslims among the framers or signers of the Declaration of Independence, which states that all men -- not just Muslims, as Islamic law would have it -- are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Were there Muslims among those who drafted the Constitution and vigorously debated its provisions, or among those who enumerated the Bill of Rights, which guarantees -- again in contradiction to the tenets of Islamic law -- that there should be no established national religion, and that the freedom of speech should not be infringed?

    There were not.

    Did Muslims play a role in the great struggle over slavery that defined so much of our contemporary understandings of the nature of this republic and of the rights of the individual within it? They did not. Did the Islamic faith shape the way the United States responded to the titanic challenges of the two World Wars, the Great Depression, or the Cold War? It did not. Did the Islamic faith, with its legal apparatus that institutionalizes discrimination against non-Muslims, shape the civil rights movement in the United States? The Civil Rights Act of 1964 mandated equality of access to public facilities -- a hard-won victory that came at a great cost, and one that Muslim groups have tried to roll back in the United States recently. One notable example of such attempts was the alcohol-in-cabs controversy at the Minneapolis-St. Paul international airport, when Muslim cabdrivers began to refuse service to customers who were carrying alcohol, on Islamic religious grounds. The core assumption underlying this initiative -- that discrimination on the basis of religion is justified -- cut right to the heart of the core principle of the American polity, that "all men are created equal," that is, that they have a right to equal treatment in law and society.

    Surveying the whole tapestry of American history, one would be hard-pressed to find any significant way in which the Islamic faith has shaped the United States in terms of its governing principles and the nature of American society. Meanwhile, there are numerous ways in which, if there had been a significant Muslim presence in the country at the time, some of the most cherished and important principles of American society and law may have met fierce resistance, and may never have seen the light of day.

    So in what way has the Islamic faith shaped Obama’s country? The most significant event connected to the Islamic faith that has shaped the character of the United States was the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Those attacks have shaped the nation in numerous ways: they’ve led to numerous innovations in airline security, which in generations to come -- if today’s politically correct climate continues to befog minds -- may be added to future versions of the fanciful "1001 Muslim Inventions" exhibition. The Islamic faith has shaped the U.S. since 9/11 in leading to the spending of billions on anti-terror measures, and to the ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to Guantanamo, and to so many features of the modern political and social landscape that they cannot be enumerated within the space of a single article.

    Of course, it is certain that Obama had none of that in mind. But what could he possibly have had in mind? His statement was either careless or ignorant, or both -- not qualities we need in a Commander-in-Chief even in the best of times.

    Perhaps he was referring to the country he really considers as "his country" where he was educated in a Madrassa.

    All the ass sucking he has done on this trip will only embolden the America haters.

    Get ready for another 9/11 or worse.

    Lest you forget............many of the slave traders, at least on the African end of the business, were Arab/Muslims. Perhaps that is the "impact" to which he refers.

    I posted this in another thread but, it fits better here.

    Obammy is an appeaser and a coward. You know what happens to an appeaser don't you? The Muslims will say "Sure, I'll be your friend." "I'll kill you last."

    Well, if that happens, we won't have to worry about the court ruling in Iowa that allows homos to marry will we?

    Gentlemen:

    In the interest of accuracy and full disclosure....

    I hate to be the one tossing a t@rd in the punch bowl but during Hannity last night, former Speaker of the House, Neutron Newt Gingrich, stated that as a sitting president, Dubya also bowed to this clown.

    Newt said he didn't like it much when either president did so.

    Bush didn't bow. The video is one of bush acepting a medal from the King and he had to bend down to have it put over his head. Newt can be a real ass sometimes. Follow the link.

    On the other hand the Obama administration just flat out lies. The video clearly shows Obama bowing:

    "The White House is denying that the president bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia at a G-20 meeting in London, a scene that drew criticism on the right and praise from some Arab outlets.
    “It wasn’t a bow. He grasped his hand with two hands, and he’s taller than King Abdullah,” said an Obama aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
    The Washington Times called it the alleged bow a “shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate,” and said it violated centuries of American tradition of not deferring to royalty. The Weekly Standard, meanwhile, noted, that American protocol apparently rules out bowing, or at least it reportedly did on the occasion of a Clinton “near bow” to the Emperor of Japan.
    Interestingly, a columnist in the Saudi-backed Arabic paper Asharq Alawsat also took the gesture as a bow, and appreciated the move.
