Obama forsvarer Ground Zero-moské

I nat under sin årlige ramadanleflen forsvarede Hussein Obama ikke overraskende opførelsen af en stormoské ved Ground Zero. For de 2.995 ofres efterladte må tanken være uudholdelig.

Good evening. Welcome to the White House.

To you, to Muslim Americans across our country, and to more than one billion Muslims around the world, I extend my best wishes on this holy month. Ramadan Kareem. I want to welcome members of the diplomatic corps; members of my administration; and Members of Congress, including Rush Holt, John Conyers, and Andre Carson, who is one of two Muslim American Members of Congress, along with Keith Ellison.

Here at the White House, we have a tradition of hosting iftars that goes back several years, just as we host Christmas parties, seders, and Diwali celebrations. These events celebrate the role of faith in the lives of the American people. They remind us of the basic truth that we are all children of God, and we all draw strength and a sense of purpose from our beliefs.

These events are also an affirmation of who we are as Americans. Our Founders understood that the best way to honor the place of faith in the lives of our people was to protect their freedom to practice religion. In the Virginia Act for Establishing Religion Freedom, Thomas Jefferson wrote that “all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion.” The First Amendment of our Constitution established the freedom of religion as the law of the land. And that right has been upheld ever since.

Indeed, over the course of our history, religion has flourished within our borders precisely because Americans have had the right to worship as they choose – including the right to believe in no religion at all. And it is a testament to the wisdom of our Founders that America remains deeply religious – a nation where the ability of peoples of different faiths to coexist peacefully and with mutual respect for one another stands in contrast to the religious conflict that persists around the globe.

That is not to say that religion is without controversy. Recently, attention has been focused on the construction of mosques in certain communities – particularly in New York. Now, we must all recognize and respect the sensitivities surrounding the development of lower Manhattan. The 9/11 attacks were a deeply traumatic event for our country. The pain and suffering experienced by those who lost loved ones is unimaginable. So I understand the emotions that this issue engenders. Ground Zero is, indeed, hallowed ground.

But let me be clear: as a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country. That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable. The principle that people of all faiths are welcome in this country, and will not be treated differently by their government, is essential to who we are. The writ of our Founders must endure.

We must never forget those who we lost so tragically on 9/11, and we must always honor those who have led our response to that attack – from the firefighters who charged up smoke-filled staircases, to our troops who are serving in Afghanistan today. And let us always remember who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for. Our enemies respect no freedom of religion. Al Qaeda’s cause is not Islam – it is a gross distortion of Islam. These are not religious leaders – these are terrorists who murder innocent men, women and children. In fact, al Qaeda has killed more Muslims than people of any other religion – and that list of victims includes innocent Muslims who were killed on 9/11.

That is who we are fighting against. And the reason that we will win this fight is not simply the strength of our arms – it is the strength of our values. The democracy that we uphold. The freedoms that we cherish. The laws that we apply without regard to race or religion; wealth or status. Our capacity to show not merely tolerance, but respect to those who are different from us – a way of life that stands in stark contrast to the nihilism of those who attacked us on that September morning, and who continue to plot against us today.

In my inaugural address, I said that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus — and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth. That diversity can bring difficult debates. Indeed, past eras have seen controversies about the construction of synagogues or Catholic churches. But time and again, the American people have demonstrated that we can work through these issues, stay true to our core values, and emerge stronger for it. So it must be – and will be – today.

Tonight, we are reminded that Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity. And Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America. The first Muslim ambassador to the United States, from Tunisia, was hosted by President Jefferson, who arranged a sunset dinner for his guest because it was Ramadan—making it the first known iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.

Like so many other immigrants, generations of Muslims came here to forge their future. They became farmers and merchants, worked in mills and factories, and helped lay the railroads. They helped build America. They founded the first Islamic center in New York City in the 1890s. They built America’s first mosque on the prairie of North Dakota. And perhaps the oldest surviving mosque in America—still in use today—is in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Today, our nation is strengthened by millions of Muslim Americans. They excel in every walk of life. Muslim American communities—including mosques in all fifty states—also serve their neighbors. Muslim Americans protect our communities as police, firefighters and first responders. Muslim American clerics have spoken out against terror and extremism, reaffirming that Islam teaches that one must save human life, not take it. And Muslim Americans serve with honor in our military. At next week’s iftar at the Pentagon, tribute will be paid to three soldiers who gave their lives in Iraq and now rest among the heroes of Arlington National Cemetery.

These Muslim Americans died for the security that we depend upon, and the freedoms that we cherish. They are part of an unbroken line of Americans that stretches back to our Founding; Americans of all faiths who have served and sacrificed to extend the promise of America to new generations, and to ensure that what is exceptional about America is protected – our commitment to stay true to our core values, and our ability to perfect our union.

For in the end, we remain “one nation, under God, indivisible.” And we can only achieve “liberty and justice for all” if we live by that one rule at the heart of every religion, including Islam—that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us.

Thank you all for being here, and I wish you a blessed Ramadan. And with that, let’s eat!

B. Hussein Obama holder tale om hjælpen til Haiti:

“By evangelicals at World Relief. By the American Jewish World Service. By Hindu temples, and mainline Protestants, Catholic Relief Services, African American churches, the United Sikhs. By Americans of every faith, and no faith, uniting around a common purpose, a higher purpose.”

Flere Obamatørismer.

Den amerikanske præsident kan bruges som ekspert af DanMarx Radio.

mullah_obamaEd West i The Telegraph: I wonder if George Dubya would have got away with making a historical blunder of this kind:

Barack Obama’s speech in Cairo yesterday, whatever else one thinks of it, did produce something in abundance: Obamateurisms. We’ll start with one noticed by Barcepundit, and fittingly so, because it relates to Spain, Barcepundit’s country. In praising the history of Islamic tolerance, Obama told his audience that Islam even showed its tolerance … during the Inquisition?

“The fifth issue that we must address together is religious freedom.

Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition.”

Barcepundit couldn’t believe his ears:

[B]y the time the Spanish Inquisition was created in 1478, Cordoba has been reconquered from Islamic hands almost 150 years earlier, in 1236.

Andalusia didn’t last long in the Inquisition period, either. It fell to Ferdinand and Isabella, the Catholic monarchs of Spain, in 1492, which completed the reconquest of Spain by Christian forces. Andalusia as an Islamic outpost had declined steadily for most of the previous 150 years.

I’m all in favour of the leader of the free world building bridges with the Muslim world, even if “proud tradition of tolerance” is not the first phrase that immediately springs to mind when I think of Islam, even in this part of the world. As David T of Harry’s Place points out:

In 1011, there was a massacre of Jews in Cordoba: which was followed by other slaughters in other parts of Al Andalus, notably in Granada in 1066 The famous Jewish scholar, Maimonides originally lived in Cordoba in the early 12th century, until the Almohades dynasty took the city, and threatened to kill any Jews who did not leave or convert to Islam. Maimonides’ family relocated to the more tolerant university city of Fes, in Morocco.

Maybe now isn’t the time to bring all this up – Obama is on a mission to heal the world and good luck to him, but I wonder whether the media, American or British, would have been so forgiving to his predecessor?

Hvilken Nobelpris?

Kan vore oplyste og velorienterede læsere hjælpe med opklaringen?

muslim_nobel_prize_winners
I sin store tale i Cairo, hvor Hussein O-Bama lobhudler islam og dens tiljængere, sagde han – blandt meget andet vrøvl – følgende:

“And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States. They have fought in our wars, served in government, stood for civil rights, started businesses, taught at our Universities, excelled in our sports arenas, won Nobel Prizes, built our tallest building, and lit the Olympic Torch.”

Bortset fra de åbenlyse ordforvekslinger – taught=harassed, built=destroyed og lit=extinguished – så vile vi her på Hodjas Blog meget, meget gerne vide, hvilken amerikansk muslim der har vundet hvilken Nobelpris!

Vi kan f.eks. se efter HER og HER. Det får vi til ialt 9 (ni). Og heraf kun 2 (to) i egentlig videnskab. Og af disse to var den ene kristen.

Til sammenligning er der 184 jødiske nobelpristagere. Men hvor der er 1,4 milliarder muslimer, er der kun 12 millioner jøder.

Skulle muslimerne altså være lige så kvikke som jøderne, burde de have 24.920 nobelpristagere. Men de har altså 9 (ni)!  – Og hvem af dem er det så den gode Hussein tænker på? – Hjælp udbedes!

Tip: Politically Incorrect.

Er der nogen blandt vore læsere – eller i det hele taget – der kan fortælle os hvad Mr. 0 hentyder til?

obama-gaffeBro mellem Øst og Vest

Obama understregede at han værdsatte den islamiske tro. Islam har gennem århundreder gjort meget for at gøre verden bedre. Obama lovede at lytte opmærksomt og udrydde misforståelser.

Jamen, det sagde han! – Og derfor vil vi gerne vide hvad islam har gjort for at gøre verden bedre? – Bare en enkelt ting, tak!

Hopenchange i aktion: amerikansk diplomati fejrer ny triumf.

fransk_kys

Le Figaro: Først gav han den britiske premierminister en stak DVD-er, som ovenikøbet ikke kan afspilles i England p.g.a. regionskoderne. Så kaldte han Brasiliens præsident ved forkert navn. Nu har præsident Hussein så skrevet et ømt brev til Frankrigs præsident, der som bekendt hedder Jacques Chirac (!)

“Jeg ser frem til et godt samarbejde de næste fire år i en atmosfære af fred og venskab og for at skabe en mere sikker verden.” – Med ordet “fred” hentyder han implicit til at den tidligere præsident i Frankrig var modstander af krigen i Irak.


Her på Hodjas Blog er vi allerede spændte på, hvad han kan finde på at ydmyge Anders Fup med. – Måske kalde ham “Lille Rødhætte” ?
