Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga
in response to reader comment: Dr. Pipes, I agree completely with your opinion regarding Obama's socialist and Muslem bias for the US

Submitted by James (United States), Jan 31, 2009 at 14:20

First, Wagner, You should smell the coffee and see the changing demographics in this country, just as we have an African American president. Yes, this country has evolved over the years and we now have all sorts of faiths which merit presidential mention even though they may not get lofty appointments. In fact, Obama hasn't done enough for the Muslims, just a talk he gave to al-Alrabiya. He hasn't appointed any of them to any position despite them being very part of this country. Secondly, Obama has been talking an-inclusive government on the campaign trail, where everyone gets a sit in the table--where have you been?

And you are right Wagner, the Bush adminstration had a envoy in the Mid-East, but what has he accomplished apart from driving the region into disastrous wars? You are very lmuch ike the establishment which cries wolf wolf when someone looks at the Muslims with a kind eye. The jews have gotten away with so much in the name of "security for the Israelis" as if the the same of the Palestinians doesn't count at all.
