# 51 through # 57

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Cairo Speech
in response to reader comment: 7 Million Muslim Americans

This is the first time I recall I hear this perspective.

Indeed it makes sense. I have heard many Islamists screaming that Israel is so arrogant as if Israel thinks she is the # 51 state- but now that you said that- it all makes sense.

As seen in psychology, when ones wants so much to hide his/her own very dirt, he /she tries to accuse the oposite part, in order to dillute the vision and divert attention- so while Israel has no right to think she is # 51, Islamist work behind to be from # 51 through # 57.

It is a metaphor...Obama spoke metaphorally....

Thanks McGovern
