Framing the Dialogue

Obama In His Own Words – The Middle East

This is a new series prompted by the recent attacks against America by radical Muslims.  One must consider that our embassies are American soil and rather than react strongly, Obama has sent out his advisers to continue his apology tour further projecting weakness that is his not ours.  Here are his own words from November 2008 (You can listen to the audio at the end if you wish;

“I truly believe that the day I’m inaugurated, not only the country looks at itself differently, but the world looks at America differently…If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country and I may be a Christian, but I also understand their point of view…My sister is half-Indonesian. I traveled there all the way through my college years. And so I’m intimately concerned with what happens in these countries and the cultures and perspective these folks have. And those are powerful tools for us to be able to reach out to the world…then I think the world will have confidence that I am listening to them and that our future and our security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world that will ultimately makes us safer.”
