Listening to the Muslim world

Here is a transcript of Obama's interview with Al-Arabyia, in which he says:

... I told him .. start by listening, because all too often the United States starts by dictating -- in the past on some of these issues -- and we don't always know all the factors that are involved. So let's listen. He's going to be speaking to all the major parties involved. And he will then report back to me. From there we will formulate a specific response.

A very good idea, listen to what Muslims are actually saying when they say things like this:

These are bodies, these are dead people, these are skulls. These are the bodies of the Jews being loaded like animals. Watch this tractor clearing away the corpses of the Jews, and these are the refugees awaiting their turn to be killed. A German soldier will come now, and you will see a Jewish woman kissing his hand. Notice what humiliation, fear, and terror have struck her. See how much she is kissing his hand. Watch her humiliation.

This is what we hope will happen, but, Allah willing, at the hand of the Muslims.


These are the bodies of the Jews. These are oppressors. Not so long before, they were fighting these soldiers, who are now standing and looking at their corpses.

I appreciate your pointing things like this out.

But you can't make a good argument if you leave important details hanging.

The question you don't answer is: how prevalent is this kind of stupidity?

You can check reports about what the Arab world is watching, what Arab children are being taught.

Among the sources available are:

http://www.memri.org/

You can also read this:

Kuntzel has written extensively about the Arab world's affection for Hitler.

That is, if you are really interested in knowing.

"...how prevalent is this kind of stupidity..."

Opinion polls show that a significant (30%) percentage of Arab university graduates in Israel (!) believe the Holocaust did not occur.

Figures in Arab countries are higher.

Many Israelis suspect that the majority in the Arab world approve of the Holocaust, and would like to repeat it. It would be interesting to find out if this is the case.
