Clinton say US respects Islam

Is there anything more pathetic than seeing a US President groveling in front of Muslims? Would anyone believe that an American would ever demand that publishers be convicted for publishing cartoons?

Clinton urges EU to convict publishers of caricatures

pres clinton low-life appeaserISLAMABAD: Former US president Bill Clinton on Friday condemned the publication of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) caricatures by European newspapers and urged countries concerned to convict the publishers. ... Talking to reporters after meeting Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz in Islamabad, Clinton said he disagreed with the caricatures and that the publication was against religious and ethical norms. Clinton said he had no objection to peaceful demonstrations being held worldwide, but this was not the time for violence. He said it was the time to promote inter-faith harmony and stand together on the issue. ... He said the people’s religious convictions should be respected at all costs and the media should be disallowed to play with the religious sentiments of other faiths. He said the media could criticise any issue including governments and people, but nobody had the right to play with the sentiments of other faiths.

Clinton said people in the US had also condemned the publication and were deeply concerned over it. He said they respected Islam, as it was the fastest growing religion in the US.

That's a laugh, people in the US respect Islam? To quote Clinton in a different context: It all depends on your definition of "respect".

I also respect Islam but in the way Hitler's regime defined respect:

The best political weapon is the weapon of terror. Cruelty commands respect. Men may hate us. But, we don't ask for their love; only for their fear.

So in this regard I completely agree with Clinton.


This story is being picked up by many papers in the region, but UPI only reported "Clinton is touring Pakistan and India this week to promote his foundation's HIV efforts", leaving off any of his absurd remarks on the Mohammed Cartoons or mentioning anything of the riots in the Muslim world.
