There’s a story floating around the fringes of the blogosphere that Egypt’s foreign minister had a one-on-one meeting with President Obama. And during that meeting, Obama told the Egyptian some rather disturbing things:
Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, who told him that he was a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father and stepson of Muslim stepfather, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Muslims, and that he was sympathetic to the Muslim agenda. He asked the Arabs to show patience.
Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic American issues (like healthcare reform), he would show the Muslim world how he would deal with Israel.
The whole story reminds me of the tale from the Bush administration, when a Palestinian official said that Bush had told him that God ordered the invasion of Iraq.
I’m not buying either story. They simply don’t make any sense. And for the same reasons.
We are being asked to believe that a sitting President of the United States would make politically damaging statements and admissions that utterly fly in the face of their own previous comments and actions in front of people who they have absolutely no reason to trust to keep their confidence. And that those admissions would serve the agendas of their audience quite nicely.
Please. These stories are utter and complete BS. Neither man is both so sinister as to keep their “real agenda” so completely under wraps, yet so naive and trusting as to blab their deepest, darkest secrets to people who would gain tremendously from immediately sharing those secrets with the world.
No, the common element here is Muslims passing off their fantasies as truths. Hell, there’s even a term in the Koran for “lying to the infidels in order to advance Islam.” It’s not only permissible, but required.
In an entirely unrelated topic, I should tell you that in a private e-mail, Lee Ward has confessed that he’s secretly in the pay of Karl Rove and Halliburton, and his online activities are designed to make all liberals look like frothing loonies and borderline sociopaths. He’s thought about quitting many, many times, but the money’s just too good to pass up.
