Obama tells Turks that US is not at war with Islam

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) – Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday the United States “is not and will never be at war with Islam.”

Urging a greater partnership with the Islamic world in an address to the Turkish parliament, Obama called the country an important ally in many areas, including the fight against terrorism. He devoted much of his speech to urging a greater bond between Americans and Muslims, portraying terrorist groups such as al-Qaida as extremists who do not represent the vast majority of Muslims.

“Let me say this as clearly as I can,” Obama said. “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical … in rolling back the violent ideologies that people of all faiths reject.”

The U.S. president is trying to mend fences with a Muslim world that felt it had been blamed by America for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Obama tells Turks that US is not at war with Islam

Let your imagination take over for just a minute, it’s the afternoon of Dec. 7, 1941 and Obama is the President. Pearl Harbor has been attacked, the Pacific Fleet has be decimated. Several thousand American military personnel lay dead, dying or forever missing.

President Barack Hussein Obama goes on the radio and tells the American people, “We are not, um, at war with the Japanese, uh, people, this was a, ah, terrible mistake. They felt that we had, um, done them an injustice and, uh, this was their way of acting, uh, out on it. We can’t blame the Japanese, um, people, and I am going to speak with the, uh, Japanese ambassador in the morning. I am sure that, uh, we can work this out with, um, sincere negotiations and we will, uh, work to build the trust of, um, our Japanese brothers.” That’s pretty much what he has said to Islam.

“America’s relationship with the Muslim community,” he said, “cannot and will not just be based upon opposition to terrorism. We seek broader engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”

“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,” he said.

Does anyone have any doubt that Obama is NOT what many of us have wondered about? What many of us have questioned? A Muslim in his heart and a kindred spirit with the Islamic hordes that have vowed to destroy America? The real life version of The Manchurian Candidate?

I have used this analogy before, but it’s worth repeating I believe. Not ALL rattlesnakes are bad guys, there might actually be a few that want to be your buddy, just hang out, eat pizza and watch some football, and would NEVER bite you, but how do we know which one that may be?

We don’t, and that is how it works with Islam. Muslims refuse to stand against those in their ranks that are violent insurgents and terrorists. Until such time as all DECENT Muslims take a bold and obvious stance against those evildoers, I pretty much lump them ALL in the same basket.

And unlike our POTUS, I have no problem with calling a war by it’s real and proper name, WAR

    Well, the Butt Orifice can be buds with those rattlesnakes….but I have NO problem using a hoe to whack of their heads!

    He may not be at war with islam, but islam is at war with America, period. This has been going on for years, and I see nothing at all that makes me think differently. Have I known a Muslim or two that appeared to be decent people? Sure and those are the ones that prove the rule. What’s one million or so that fall into that category when there are 100 million that want us dead?

    Screw obama and the camel he rode in on…

    So – who should we be at war with, Mr. Obama? After all, it was MEMBERS of the muslim faith who hijacked the airplanes and crashed them into various targets; it certainly wasn’t just random “acting out” – it was an intentional attack on the United States as a country.

    Islamic Buddies? More like his Islamic(Terrorist) Brothers…talk about giving aid and comfort to our enemies, this guy is as bad as the Dixie Chicks, and you can give those twats a pass, they were born stupid…Obama, just born evil.

    The Geneva Convention. Islamists freely and willingly abrogate the Geneva Convention.

    Until Islamist militants gladly don uniforms distinct from civilian classes, until they ride, drive, utilize, fly or sail weapons carrying distinct markings, then any mistaken civilian casualties will simply have to go down into the “oh fucking well, shit just happens” categories. GTFOI.

    I am so sick of BO going around apologizing for me. I don’t have anything to apologize for.

    I’m with you Fred. Until, they separate themselves they are all guilty and deserve punishment. You want us to think a single positive thought about Islam you best start taking care of your own bad apples before we find them. Oh, and if you happen to be there when one of our munitions visit, too bad, so sad.

    Read Obama Conflicted Over Islam? What’s the truth? at the ARRA News. A long read but worth chewing on!

    We may not be at war with Islam, but Islam is very definitely at war with us.

    What the heck is this? Didn’t the madrassah that Obama the Kenyan attended in Indonesia tell him that Islam had always been at war with the infidel West? Surely he learned how to cut off the heads of infidels. Hmmm?

    He’s going us better: he’s disarming us and dissing the USA and apologizing for our primacy. Primacy means first rate—the best. He apologizes for that. Sez we’re not a Christain nation. Well, that’s the way a stinking muslim would talk, anyway. Hmmm?

    Shucks! I really want that jerk to stay in Ankara, or maybe Bagdad.
