I guess the thought of the the "Obama" statue less than a month after it was erected was too much to take for our narcissist in chief. So off to retrace his childhood steps in Indonesia, children in tow.
I mean, really. They ridiculous statue down, and off he runs. Sick.
Perhaps he'll address the relentless Muslim persecution of the Christians in Indonesia. The Muslim burning of churches. Methinks not. Will he address the spike in jihad-related violence against non-believers? No. He is going to talk about the biggest threat facing mankind today — the weather. Climate change and man's responsibility for it. What hubris. But jihad? What jihad?
Oh, and he is taking his children to the school in Jakarta where he studied koran and Islam. Perhaps he'll come out.
Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) —will bring his wife and children
on a trip next month to , where he spent part of his childhood, as the
U.S. seeks closer ties with the nation that has the world’s largest Muslim
“This visit has a sentimental aspect and that’s why he’s bringing along his
two daughters,” Indonesian presidential spokesman Dino Patti Djalal told
reporters today. “The children will see where their father went to school,” he
said, referring to Obama’s time in
Jakarta where he studied at Catholic and state-run elementary schools
from 1967 to 1971.[Media deception alert – he studied Islam].
“I was a little Jakarta street kid,” he said in a wide-ranging interview in his office (excerpts are on my blog, www.nytimes.com/ontheground).
He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in
his elementary school, but a president is less likely to stereotype
Muslims as fanatics — and more likely to be aware of their nationalism
— if he once studied the Koran with them.
Mr. Obama recalled the
opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a
first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated
(it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call
to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
Mr. Obama’s own grandfather in Kenya was a Muslim. Mr. Obama never met
his grandfather and says he isn’t sure if his grandfather’s two wives
were simultaneous or consecutive, or even if he was Sunni or Shiite.
(O.K., maybe Mr. Obama should just give up on Alabama.)
Now back to the Indonesia Trip article:
Obama plans to formally announce a U.S. partnership with Indonesia during the
trip, which will take place in the second half of March, the U.S. embassy in
Jakarta said in a statement.
The pact, discussed in a November meeting between Obama and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono, will include ways to enhance bilateral investment, Djalal
Talks on climate change may also come up, Djalal said. Indonesia trails only the
U.S. and China as the biggest carbon dioxide emitting nations when greenhouse
gases from deforestation and land-use changes are included, according to the
World Wildlife Fund. The U.S. and Indonesia signed up to the , which contains
numerical goals for all major greenhouse-gas emitters.
What a scam."Climate Change," just a leftist ruse to redistribute America's wealth to Muslim countries.
Obama lived in Jakarta after his mother married an Indonesian, leaving the
Asian [Muslim] country in 1971 to pursue a U.S. education.
Obama’s intention to visit his boyhood haunts represents “the highest token
of trust” in Indonesia’s security, Djalal said. Terrorists have killed almost
300 people since 2002 in bombing attacks against Western-linked targets in the
country. Indonesia has executed three Islamic militants and jailed hundreds of
their accomplices in response.
