Obama embraces Turkey and Libya, sees blue skies ahead

Here are two examples which illustrate why Obama is a Muslim in behavior and attitude.

Turkey, Trying to Isolate Israel, Gets Cordial Treatment From Obama Administration

( – As Turkey’s leaders intensify efforts to isolate Israel internationally, the cordial treatment they are receiving from the Obama administration this week will add to concerns some Americans have about the strength of its support for Israel.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described as “excellent” her talks in New York City on Monday with her Turkish counterpart, Ahmet Davutoglu. President Obama is scheduled to meet with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan there on Tuesday. All are in the city for this week’s U.N. General Assembly sessions.
The Clinton-Davutoglu meeting came a day after the Turkish foreign minister announced that his government had blocked an Israeli attempt to open a liaison office at NATO headquarters in Brussels – the latest in a string of moves aimed at punishing Israel over a deadly commando raid on a Turkish ship carrying pro-Palestinian activists to the Gaza Strip in May 2010.
Erdogan’s Islamist-leaning government earlier this month angrily rejected a U.N. report on the incident that called the Israeli raid “excessive and unreasonable” but also described the attempt to breach Israel’s blockade of the Hamas-ruled territory as “reckless” and concluded that the blockade was a “legitimate security measure.”
While Israeli leaders have expressed a desire to heal the rift between the one-time allies, Turkey imposed sanctions on Jerusalem and declared its intention to use all international forums to make its views on Israel known.
Erdogan used a high-profile tour of Egypt, Tunisia and Libya last week to repeatedly condemn Israel and throw his weight behind the Palestinian U.N. recognition bid. And Turkish media reported that a government minister, Egemen Bagis, staged a symbolic walkout of an international conference in Ukraine on Friday when Israeli President Shimon Peres was about to deliver a speech.
In a fresh development, Davutoglu told CNN’s Turkish channel on Sunday that Turkey had threatened to veto an Israeli application this month to open an office at NATO headquarters.
“We said we would veto this attempt and the issue was not even put on the agenda,” Turkey’s Hurriyet newspaper quoted him as telling the news channel. It said Davutoglu also denied that Israel would benefit in any way from a recent decision to house a NATO missile defense radar on Turkish soil.
Early this month, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland was asked about Turkey’s claim that it made non-intelligence sharing cooperation with Israel a condition of its decision to accommodate the radar.
“This is a NATO system, and it is designed to protect NATO,” she replied. Israel is not a member of NATO.
The 28-member transatlantic alliance takes decisions by consensus, and the blocking of an Israeli office in Brussels is not the first time in recent months Turkey has wielded its clout on issues of importance to Washington.
Last November it insisted that a key NATO document on missile defensenot name Iran as a potential missile threat, and Erdogan also opposed NATO intervention in Libya last spring, before shifting stance as the crisis deepened.
In the CNN Turk interview, Davutoglu said it was too late for U.S. mediation between Turkey and Israel, and that Turkey would not relent on its insistence for an Israeli apology over the flotilla incident.
And regarding Libya, it seems we are embracing another so-called "moderate" Muslim who speaks all the right words, but who's past actions belie those soothing words of peace.  Mustafa Abdul Jalil said this a while ago "...Islamic sharia law would be the 'main source' of legislation in the new Libya"(The Telegraph) yet Obama shakes hands with him during the "squeeze and shoot" part of the meeting and tells the world that Libya should keep on track towards their new democratic and just society.
The difference between stupidity and ignorance is that ignorance can be solved with knowledge.. Obama is neither ignorant or stupid, he is calculating and dangerous and that makes him the most unstable factor in Washington DC today.

President Obama Praises Libya's Political Transition

President Obama met Libya's interim leader Tuesday on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly and held up the country as a model of what the U.N. can do to protect civilians from atrocities.
Out of the frying pan...
Obama also pledged continued support and encouraged Libya's new leaders to keep their promises to forge a just, democratic society.
Libyan rebels have yet to find ousted leader Moammar Gadhafi and fighting continues in the country. Still, Obama went to the meeting with a hopeful message.
"Today, the Libyan people are writing a new chapter in the life of their nation. After four decades of darkness, they can walk the streets, free from a tyrant," Obama said.
He said the U.S. ambassador was heading back to Tripoli to reopen the U.S. Embassy, abandoned earlier this year. The United Nations has a new team led by a British diplomat to help Libya work on a new constitution and prepare for elections.
So far, this seems to be a good news story for the U.N., at least the way Obama described it.
"This is how the international community should work in the 21st century — more nations bearing the responsibility and the costs of meeting global challenges. In fact, this is the very purpose of this United Nations," he said.
Libya Seeking Frozen Assets
Obama met with the chairman of Libya's Transitional National Council, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, who is again asking for access to billions of dollars in frozen Libyan assets. Abdul-Jalil also reassured the countries gathered at the U.N. that he's given Libyans clear orders not to seek retribution against Gadhafi's supporters.
"The Libyan authorities will bring to justice all accused of the Gadhafi regime before a just trial, and we will work for the spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation over the coming period," he said.
Excuse my while I go empty my stomach of its contents.
Read the rest of both articles, it is important we know what Obama is doing and how he is undermining this country through a personal vendetta/agenda.
