Prince Obama’s Egypt Speech
Obama sought a “new beginning” between the United States and the Muslim world on Thursday but offered no new initiative to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
• Lots and lots of quotes from the Quran — no word on whether he quoted these lines from heart, or whether TOTUS fed him those lines.
• What didn’t he say? — Obama never mentioned the absence of human rights, women’s rights, and religious rights in the Muslim world. – The Obama File [FOR QUICK DAILY UPDATES ON OBAMA]
“Pretty Words and Ugly Thoughts
by murphy“ a look at Obama’s Egypt speech:
“…what do you think of obama’s words if we change the context just a little bit?
“April 5, 1861: In a speech this morning in Atlanta intended to lower the war-like rhetoric of the past months and avoid what many have been calling an imminent war between the North and the South, President Obama addressed members of the the Southern Plantation Owners Association. He said,
“I have come here to seek a new beginning between the Abolitionists and Slave Owners; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that Abolitionism and Slavery are not exclusive, and need not be in competition,” he said. “Instead, they overlap, and share common principles — principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
On the subject of equal rights for slaves he said:
“I reject the view of some in the North that a man who works peacefully and is well taken care of by his Master is somehow less equal.” and added, “but I do believe that a man who is denied an education is denied equality. And it is no coincidence that states where negro children are well-educated are far more likely to be prosperous.”
