"Egypt's Mubarak says Obama has new approach to Islam. Thursday, June 11, 2009.
"Obama understands this issue well," Mubarak said.
CAIRO (Reuters) - Barack Obama has presented a fresh understanding of Islam not shown by predecessors, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said in his first interview since the U.S. president addressed the Muslim world from Cairo.
Obama called for a "new beginning" in ties between the United States and Muslims, many of whom felt targeted by the "war against terror" launched by former President George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 attacks, and his wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Colonel Neville: That would be the one "launched" after 1300 years of asymmetrical Islamic Jihad oblique and overt...Nuance.
"Under the past administration, there was a feeling that the Islamic world was a group of terrorists.."
Colonel Neville: Ain't it the way? You blow up a few hundred thousand fucking cafes, cars and girls schools etc, etc and they call you a terrorist and mark you for life!
"...Islam was hated and Muslims should be watched, and that the previous administration was scared of any Muslim," Mubarak said.
Colonel Neville: Well, yes naturally..if you're sane and read and are not totally deaf, blind and utterly stupid, yes.
"But Obama came and said we will not fight Muslims and Islam. He is a sympathetic man, and says the United States will not fight Islam because Islam is a heavenly religion," he told state television in an interview broadcast late Wednesday.
Obama told Muslims in his June 4 speech that violent extremists had exploited tensions between Muslims and the West and that Islam was not part of the problem."
"Obama also said he would "personally pursue" a drive to set up a Palestinian state alongside Israel, a solution backed by Mubarak and other Arab states but not by Netanyahu.”
Colonel Neville: Yep, global jihad just flew out of an anonymous ass...
So remember folks: Barry Hussein Sotuero Barack Obama is NOT a Muslim. Au contraire no, no. Just cos his Father was a Muesli and that makes you a Muesliman, or B.O spent half a dozen years in Indonesia learning the Koran and jihadists Muslims have murdered 10,000 Christians between 2001 and 2002.
Or cos Barry can speak Arabic and he's not a Christian but a Marxist leftard activist socialist, who spent 20 years in a Marxist product black theology fake church, and millions of Muslims see him as a Muslim. Or because his fellow Luo tribesman on his Muslim Father's side is Kenya's Odinga, his faux cousin and a Muslim pro-Sharia despot whom Obama campaigned for personally and when Barry left, Odinga murdered 1200 opposition and...
Oh that's right: all unpleasant facts about Obama are "racist!"
Via lifenews Hussein Alinsky Obama's extra fudge judge Sotoholdthemayo never gave it a single moral thought. “What that little thing? Pish-posh!”
“..When I asked if an unborn child has any rights whatsoever, I was surprised that she said she had never thought about it," he said. "This is not just a question about abortion, but about respect due to human life at all stages.”
Still, it’s a laff...
“With the crisis, the ill-conceived government reactions, and the ensuing economic downturn, the unfunded liabilities of federal programs — such as Social Security, civil-service and military pensions, the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation, Medicare and Medicaid — are over the $100 trillion mark. With U.S. GDP and federal tax receipts at about $14 trillion and $2.4 trillion respectively, such a debt all but guarantees higher interest rates, massive tax increases, and partial default on government promises."
Colonel Neville: Ah, the Dull Lettuceman Show. Remember folks, on her New York trip Palin only took Willow who is 14 years old. And Letterman knew it. Letterman inducted into NOW hall of shame! No really.

“I had a few long moments of panic after publishing last night’s post when I considered that Entertainment Weekly might have taken him out of context. Surely he didn’t really defend himself by saying he only meant to call Bristol a whore, not Willow.
Except..he did, as you’re about to see. No apology, either; the closest we get is an admission that he “probably” regrets having told those jokes — which are duly repeated here in their entirety — but only after admitting that he “kind of likes” the one comparing Palin herself to a “slutty flight attendant.”
On some basic level he doesn’t understand what the problem is here (e.g., comparing Spitzer and Alex Rodriguez, each of whom sought fame, to Bristol, who didn’t), and no wonder: Much of the left’s derision towards Palin and her daughter stems from the perception that they’re white trash, a class-oriented smear which Dave naturally figured he could mine for a few safe slut/whore jokes at their expense. Imagine his mystification at suddenly finding out that he can’t. Evidently it’s not just cultured, well educated, progressive girls like the Obama sisters who are off-limits for cheap shots."
Miss Erbe the left faux feminist creep explains once again why some women are just asking for it..if they’re conservative..and named Palin.

“Try and fathom a mind that actually searches for ways to justify goofing on an 18-year-old single mother as a whore.
Mark Steyn: “It's very difficult to be a state ironist, which is the role America's establishment comedians have volunteered themselves for. If you're going to do jokes about statutory rape and the trash families of leading politicians, Jim Treacher points out that the president's brother, Samson Obama, has been banned from the United Kingdom because of attempted assault of a 13-year-old girl.
So now that the Tiffany network has opened up this promising new seam of comedy gold, wouldn't it be way cooler if Letterman had joked about Sarah Palin's daughter getting raped by Obama's brother? That'd be hilarious, right? Not just 'cause it's a bipartisan rape gag but because it would be — what's the word? — "edgy." You know, like they used to say about Dave three or four decades back...”
Lettuceman is a Boor and a Coward by Victor Davis Hanson.
"Smug, hip David Letterman offered a smirky non-apology about his ongoing class and sexist slurs against the Palins, his apparent social inferiors. "We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news and we made some jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter, the 18-year-old girl, who is — her name is Bristol, that's right, and so, then, now they're upset with me..."
"These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl. I mean, look at my record. It has never happened. I don't think it's funny. I would never think it was funny. I wouldn't put it in a joke..."
Examine the logic. First, Letterman makes a gutter joke about Palin and her unnamed 14-year-old daughter attending a NY Yankees game. Then when a bit of outrage follows, he apparently claims he really meant to slur the other 18-year-old daughter who, back in Alaska, of course did not attend the game but was not named by Letterman. That would be okay, you see.
Second, then he evokes the now common straw man "they" who are apparently "upset" with him, hoping to play the victim card. Then he dribbles out something about his "last show" as if we are to weep that some mob is out to silence him. (But the reason he picked the Palins, and not the Obamas, Gores, Bidens, or Kerrys, was precisely because he knew it would not equate to his "last show").
Third, he strangely amplifies his joke by confessing it really was about "raping" and "having sex of any description," but just not with a "14-year-old girl," suggesting it would have been okay had he just been more explicit and named Bristol, the 18-year-old. In Letterman's world, because Bristol is 18, she is a year past most statuary rape clauses and thus the joke would have only been about "raping or having sex of any description with a [18-year-old] girl."
Nothing offered about his slurs against airline attendants and Governor Palin herself, when he sneered that she had a "slutty flight-attendant look," or his remark that Palin "was keeping Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter."
The self-serving, creepy apology was as bad as the initial slur. Letterman is emblematic of an aging, baby-boomer culture, that dresses up street vulgarity with a tie and coat. The only thing that saves him is his care to do this with the Palins from Alaska who don't figure into the usual no-go race/class/gender paradigm..."
