I hate to keep picking on our pour, inexperienced President, but he keeps offering up various and sundry moments of utter foolishness.
Read this from today's headlines. (More to say at the end.)
Obama addresses Muslims on Ramadan

In a video message to Muslims getting ready for the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which begins Saturday in most of the Islamic world, US President Barack Obama on Friday cast US military efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and
Washington's support in a two-state solution as part of his drive to forge a new relationship between America and the Muslim world.

Relations with the world's 1.5 billion Muslims soured after the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Obama said in the a video message that US efforts to end the war in Iraq and to isolate extremists in Afghanistan and Pakistan are in keeping with America's responsibility to build a more peaceful and secure world. He said that also includes US support for a two-state solution recognizing the rights of Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace and security.

"All of these efforts are part of America's commitment to engage Muslims and Muslim-majority nations on the basis of mutual interest and mutual respect," Obama said in the message posted on the
White House Web site. "And at this time of renewal, I want to reiterate my commitment to a new beginning between America and Muslims around the world." Ramadan, a month long period of prayer, reflection and sunrise-to-sunset fasts, begins Saturday in most of the Islamic world.

Obama said Ramadan's rituals are a reminder of the principles Muslims and Christians have in common, including advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
Obama has made a special effort since taking office to repair US relations with the world's Muslims, including visits to Turkey and
Obama's visit to the Egyptian capital in June fulfilled his promise to deliver a speech in a major Muslim city.
In that speech, as well as in one to another important Muslim audience, in Turkey, Obama said: "America is not - and never will be - at war with Islam.

Since when do Islam and Christianity have anything in common? Since when do we even place Islam and Christianity in the same sentence as having the same value?

One thing is clear to me...our President is clueless about Christianity if he believes the principles of Islam are similar. I suppose he was absent from church the day that Jeremiah Wright outlined the differences! And, in the end, who is left in the lurch by this Presidential diatribe? Of course, Israel. I'm releatively certain folks like Mahmoud Ahmadinijad and Ayatollah Ali Khameini really enjoy our President's speeches.
