Obama's Cairo speech did not go down well with al-Qaeda

Was this American who criticized President Barack Obama's (D) Cairo speech a racist? A bigot?   

When Obama stated in Cairo     

he was seeking a relationship with the Muslim world "based on mutual interest and mutual respect."


"I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear," he said at Cairo University. "But that same principle must apply to Muslim perceptions of America. Just as Muslims do not fit a crude stereotype, America is not the crude stereotype of a self-interested empire."

the American critic countered   

Obama's speechwriters made "one major miscalculation.  A Muslim doesn't look to peace, security, education, work, or the love of any other number of things as his ultimate goals,"    

Even Obama's "magic of charisma" can't change this the Obama critic asserted.   

Well yes, the critic should be considered a racist, a bigot, a terrorist even.  But many won't label him that because the critic, who goes by the name of Abu Mansour al-Amriki (the American), is an American citizen who has been living in Somalia for several years where he is linked to al Qaeda according to  MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) which transcribed and posted the recording, and Fox News' reporters Mike Levine and Catherine Herridge who explain it.      

As to Obama's offer of an open hand, al-Amriki answered that when Obama 

at least pretend(s) to extend your hand in peace to the Muslims, we cannot and shall not extend our hands. Rather, we shall extend to you our swords, until you leave our lands.  

That's very clear.  And we should take him--and his many colleagues-- at their word.
