Many Americans are just too narrow minded to look beyond the fact that his Mıddle name is Hussein. Instead of focusing on his policies which will lift america out of recession, a weak dollar, being #1 despised laughing stock of a country --they focus on his bloody name!

I respect Europe a lot more --where Muslims participate much more in politics and there is no witch hunt or smearing campaigns against them, unlike the immature and unrefined Americans

Main reason why I live back and forth between Europe and Turkey (for work). Still keeping it real to my Egyptian Pakistani roots. Thank God I have a culture, Americans came from europe. Lol
