And barely a mention of Islam

A comment by President Obama appears in the Jerusalem Post on Sunday, September 11, the tenth anniversary of the Islamic terror attacks on the United States. Stunningly, the President rewrites history by claiming that mosques around the world offered prayers for the 9/11 victims, 'forgetting' (more likely ignoring) that many Muslims celebrated - openly or quietly - the 9/11 attacks.
We remember with gratitude how 10 years ago the world came together as one. Around the globe, entire cities came to a standstill for moments of silence. People offered their prayers in churches, mosques, synagogues and other places of worship. And those of us in the United States will never forget how people in every corner of the world stood with us in solidarity in candlelight vigils and among the seas of flowers placed at our embassies.
Let's go to the videotape.

The 'Palestinians' did not offer prayers for Americans - they celebrated. In fact, the famous photo of Yasser Arafat donating his AIDS-contaminated blood for 9/11 victims was staged.

Obama goes on to state the platitude that the United States is not and will not be at war with Islam. Unfortunately, Obama believes that the United States is at war with al-Qaeda and not with Islamic terrorists.
We remember that in the weeks after 9/11, we acted as an international community. As part of a broad coalition, we drove al-Qaida from its training camps in Afghanistan, toppled the Taliban and gave the Afghan people a chance to live free from terror.

However, the years that followed were difficult and the spirit of global partnership we felt after 9/11 frayed.

As president, I’ve worked to renew the global cooperation we need to meet the full breadth of global challenges that we face.

Through a new era of engagement, we’ve forged partnerships with nations and peoples based on mutual interest and mutual respect.

As an international community, we have shown that terrorists are no match for the strength and resilience of our citizens. I’ve made it clear that the United States is not – and never will be – at war with Islam. Rather, with allies and partners we are united against al-Qaida, which has attacked dozens of countries and killed tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children – the vast majority of them Muslims.

This week, we remember all the victims of al-Qaida and the courage and resilience with which their families and fellow citizens have persevered, from the Middle East to Europe, from Africa to Asia.
That's right - Obama is remembering 'all the victims of al-Qaeda' - which means he's remembering mostly Muslims. He's minimizing the American victims. They're just a few among many.
Meanwhile, people across the Middle East and North Africa are showing that the surest path to justice and dignity is the moral force of nonviolence, not mindless terrorism and violence. It is clear that violent extremists are being left behind and that the future belongs to those who want to build, not destroy.
Really? Let's go to the videotape.

Doesn't sound much like the good guys are winning, does it?

This President is a disgrace to the United States of America. It's long past time for him to go home.
