In a speech addressed to the United Nations,
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support
Only a few will read the full text of this first black American President. Yet his speech is in effect telling fanatics, who will not read Obama's full text around the world, that it is ALL RIGHT to kill American Ambassadors, tourists or visitors since they represent a few extremist among the American people who slander the founder of Islam! Of course, his speech, does not say the future DOES NOT belong to CHRISTIANS or JEWS. But offhand by the first line, he may be saying the future belong only to the MUSLIMS!
A stupid speech, if not read in full, but then he is President of the United States. I am now concerned about the repercussions.
Obama believes that people around the world are sane as Americans back home. Do you frankly believe that countries which approve or turn aside the following:
- forced women circumcisions!!
- honor killings
- kidnappings and beheadings of victims
- attack embassies and murdering foreign ambassadors?
- putting to death those who converted to Christianity
- making humans and children carry bombs to detonate them
will READ his COMPLETE speech on TOLERANCE?
This illustrates the danger of Power Point type of analysis. By extracting only the "relevant part" the import of the whole message is LOST!
I have reposted also the complete speech of Obama, in a new posting. Here is the source: whitehouse.gov
