OBAMA;S SPEECH IN CAIRO

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Cairo Speech

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Jun 4, 2009 at 12:51

How can we be so gullible in believing everything Obama says?

He is a politician and as every politician, he lies. Inflating such numbers to make him feel good vis a vis the new Arab entity that is to vote for him is just another ploy.

He claims he knows history but let me say he only knows the part he likes to use to satisfy his listeners. He reminds me so much what Harry Truman said, that The only thing new in this world is the history you don't know.

And he forgets that History is something that gets written in a hurry, as Niall Ferguson would say.

And he also forgot that as Sir Arthur Charles Clarke said:"The greatest tragedy in mankind's entire history may be the hijacking of morality by religion."

I rest my case
