“I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
Not Catholicism. Not Judaism. Only Islam.
Instead, they overlap, and share common principles — principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.
More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims…
Anti-colonialism, you say?
The Obama administration’s Department of Justice official Edward Perez, who is the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, refuses to say that his department won’t attempt to criminalize blasphemy in the future.
Where is this headed? To this:
What an American President should be doing is to be telling the Islamic world that the US honors free speech and it is guaranteed by our Constitution and we have no intention of ending that freedom nor matter who is offended by it. We should NOT be kowtowing to Islam, which is what is happening right now. Islam needs to make accommodations to democracy, not the other way around.
I have little use for a religion which condones and encourages the murder of those who have nothing to do with the perceived offense, even you’re really gullible enough to believe this is all about a movie (It’s not).
Rising anger provoked by an anti-Islam film has seen protestors storm U.S. embassies in Muslim countries from Egypt to Yemen, where four people have been killed and dozens others injured.
Chanting ‘death to America’, hundreds of protestors marched on the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen’s capital today, where they burned the American flag, used stones to smash windows, and set fire to cars, before breaking through the main gate of the heavily fortified compound in eastern Sana’a.
I have little use for a religion which is perpetually offended by pretty much anything and everything.
I have absolutely no use for a President who holds Islam in higher regard than the Constitution he swore to defend.
