One sided "goodwill" does not work!!!

Reader comment on item: Obama, "Respect" and Muslims
in response to reader comment: Goodwill on a collision course with hostility.

Peter, you write : "Obama probably sincerely wishes a rapprochement with the Islamic world, and sincerely wants to back away from a stance of confrontation."

Question is, do Muslims want any "rapproachment" with the non-Muslim world. The evidence gathered for last 1400 years says "NO"!!! In that case what's the point of appeasing Muslims??Everyone knows appeasement never works>

"Unfortunately, Dubya Bush also wanted peace with the Islamic world, and tried to take aim only at Al-Qaeda and those who expressed hostility towards the USA in those days after 09/11/01--and said quite plainly that we were not at war with Islam per se."

And Muslim world never believed him nor do they believe Obama.

Stay tuned for the surprises to Obama administration from the Muslim world!!!
