Obama’s Muslim Summit Brainstorm
Barack Obama has announced that one of his first acts if elected president will be to hold a summit meeting with leaders of Muslim countries, at which he will “listen to their concerns.”
Of course, those concerns will be: “Israel, Israel, Israel, Israel, and Israel.”
At Commentary Magazine’s Contentions blog, Abe Greenwald has some questions for Obama on his latest brilliant plan: Obama’s Muslim Summit.
Reuters reports that if Barack Obama becomes President, he’ll hold a summit with all leaders of Muslim countries:
“Once I’m elected, I want to organize a summit in the Muslim world, with all the heads of state, to have an honest discussion about ways to bridge the gap that grows every day between Muslims and the West.”
Is he planning on doing this before or after bombing Pakistan? Because that could have an effect on that gap he’s talking about. And in what phase of their nuclear program will Iran be when Obama has this sit-down with the mullahs? And will he require Tehran to rebuild the cobwebbed American embassy first or is he through with international law altogether? And when it’s the Iraqi prime minister’s turn to speak, what will Obama do when he requests the return of the 100,000 troops he just withdrew from that country?
