This video has been floating around for a while but it is so powerful I thought I should take the opportunity to share it. The reason it is so powerful is because it does not rely on persuasion or rhetoric to make a point, but only the President's own public admissions and actions. If you wonder if these pronouncements are truly indicative of his personal views or whether they merely display the open minded ethos so valued in Democratic societies, the answer depends upon who's viewing them. To the Western Judeo/Christian individual these statements and gestures could be easily interpreted as the appropriately inclusive attitude reflected in our multicultural society. But, to the Muslim, they signal his obedience and allegiance to Allah. And, to me, that’s what is frightening.
