The Washington Times nailed it when they said it was ‘a shocking display of fealty to a foreign potentate’.
The White House denies it. Some people, mostly Dems, say ‘so what’? Well, here’s the ‘so what’:
The Islamofascists appreciate the gesture:
The Secret behind Obama’s Bow to the King
……Obama lived part of his childhood in Indonesia and in his meeting with the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques attempted to evoke this. For bowing is an expression of affection in Indonesian culture and in East Asia in general. And so Obama wished to demonstrate his respect and appreciation of the personality of King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, who has made one of the most important calls in the modern era, namely the call for inter-faith and inter-cultural dialogue to defuse the hatred, conflict and wars. And so the American right-wing –and the media which is sympathetic towards them- is reading too much into Obama’s bow.
Reading too much? I don’t think so. We understand all too well the lack of ‘inter-faith’ tolerance on the part of Arab culture toward Christians, Jews, and ‘non-believer infidels’. Last I checked, there aren’t any churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia or most of the Islamic Middle East. That’s because they’re not allowed. Saudi Arabia occupies a region of the world that produces Islamic terrorists like assemby-line parts and has contributed its fair share to conflict and wars.
On that note, Obama is contributing $900 million to Hamas as part of the ‘stimulus’ package.
The bow to Abdullah was just another sign of allegiance to hostile enemies of the United States.
As for media ‘sympathies’; the predominant leftwing media are still fawning. The luster on THE ONE’s aura hasn’t worn thin enough…yet.
