Despite what Obama said in his speech, America and Islam are mutually exclusive.
If you are born in America, you can renounce your citizenship without incurring the death penalty. If you are born a Muslim, you renounce your religion under the penalty of death. (Unless you are a woman, where you only get lashed)
In America women are free to be immodest. Under Islam, you must wear garments that make you appear modest.
In America you are free to say religion sucks. Under Islam you are only permitted to say some other religion sucks.
In America we are a nation of many religions. In the Islamic world there is only one religion spread over many nations. For example, there is the Organization of the Islamic Conference, but there is no equal organization of Catholic, or Buddhist, or Hindu countries.
In America you are free to call George Bush a dirty rotten fascist bastard. In Islamic countries you are forced to call George Bush a dirty rotten fascist bastard.
American women have a right to vaginal stimulation. Muslim women have a right to vaginal mutilation.
Americans fight wars to liberate. Muslims fight wars to enslave.
In America, women are allowed to marry whoever they love. Muslim women who marry those they love are usually killed because they disobeyed their parents.
In America, beating your wife is illegal. Under Islam it is encouraged (1).
In America we are governed under the laws of man. In Islam, Muslims and Dhimmis are governed under the laws of God.
In America the Earth revolves around the Sun. In Islam, the Sun revolves around the Earth (2).
In America there is a mosque in every major city that has Muslims. In Islamic countries there is a mosque in every major city that has Muslims.
In America there is no excuse for raping a woman. In Islam, unveiled women are asking for rape (3).
America encourages immigrants to become Americans. Islam discourages Muslim immigrants from assimilating into any culture (4).
America is a way of life. Islam is a way of death.
America: hundreds of years of unimpeded progress. Islam: 1400 years of impeding progress.
Planck's Constant, Beheadings, Honor Killings Over Muslim Divorce
Certainly in the United States and in Europe one can find many instances of women being abused by their husbands. The difference however is that western nations do not have in their constitutions any justification for the beating of wives while the Qur'an has detailed instructions on why, how and when they should be beaten

Planck's Constant, Muslim Cleric: Unveiled Women are like Juicy Steak
In a Ramadan sermon in a Sydney mosque, Sheik al-Hilali suggested that a group of Muslim men recently jailed for many years for gang rapes were not entirely to blame.
There were women, he said, who 'sway suggestively' and wore make-up and immodest dress "and then you get a judge without mercy and gives you 65 years. But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he said, referring to the women victims.
Addressing 500 worshippers on the topic of adultery, Sheik al-Hilali added: "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it..whose fault is it - the cats or the uncovered meat?
"The uncovered meat is the problem."
He went on: "If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab (veil), no problem would have occurred."
Islam in Europe, Oslo: Rapes are the fault of Norwegian girls
Norwegian girls complain that foreign boys do this and that, but the reason there are so many rapes is that Norwegian girls go around almost completely naked! That's like saying "come here and fuck me", you understand?

Consequently, among a generation of Muslims born in Europe, significant numbers have nothing but contempt and disdain for their native lands, and allegiance only to the Muslim umma and the lands of their parents’ birth. Those who continue to arrive in Europe from Muslim countries are encouraged by the isolation, self-imposed and other-abetted, of the Islamic communities in Europe to hold to the same attitudes. The Arab European League, a Muslim advocacy group operating in Belgium and the Netherlands, states as part of its “vision and philosophy” that “we believe in a multicultural society as a social and political model where different cultures coexist with equal rights under the law.” It strongly rejects for Muslims any idea of assimilation or integration into European societies: “We do not want to assimilate and we do not want to be stuck somewhere in the middle. We want to foster our own identity and culture while being law abiding and worthy citizens of the countries where we live. In order to achieve that it is imperative for us to teach our children the Arabic language and history and the Islamic faith.
