Getting arabs and muslims to be honest

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Cairo Speech
in response to reader comment: Muslim Innovations? What have they got to do with Muslims or Islam?

Obama surely has a speech-writer and the guy wanted to say something nice to the quislings of islam. Obama cannot have known all that he tried to cram into this speech (like Morocco having recognised USA firstmost etc.). On the other hand how does a president visting an arab-fanatic-islamic-overbred nation express himself if not to flatter the muslims and arabs?

I hope someone in the USA questions Obama about this arabs-and-muslims-flattering speech without destroying the possible chances of peace therein. Getting arabs and muslims to be honest is a long way off and I don't think any president of the USA can achieve it in 8 years. Islam means submission, submission under a 7th century arab-tribal narrow-minded god-concept. Hence islam and honesty are incompatible.

Instead of thrashing Obama let us forward constructive suggestions as to how we can move the arabs and muslims towards accepting honesty and non-violence as the real marks of real decency. Exhibitionism to show off their fanatic and unquestionable obedience to the arab-tribal god-concept is what the muslims practise today.
