At the summit of the G-20 nations in April, Obama bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia—then denied it—and despite the video and the still photos, the media told us “are you going to believe Obama or your lying eyes?” Obama obviously bowed, only weeks before Obama went to the Middle East and touted his Muslim heritage. His speech in Cairo was like a coming out announcement by a Muslim debutante. He said about himself all the things no one else was allowed to say about him before the election when some Americans may have had reservations about a president so steeped in Islamic culture. Some have said that this was Obama relating to the peoples of the world so he can bring them together and declare an end to all wars. The terrorists who bombed a hotel in Pakistan less than a week following his speech didn’t get Obama’s memo that they are members of a peaceful religion. Perhaps he doesn’t understand that, to some in his audience, “world peace” means a global Islamist government subjugating everyone to a caliphate. This trip to the Middle East had an awkward stop in Saudi Arabia, perhaps so that Obama could have the king greet him in broad daylight to show Americans back home that he didn’t bow. He didn’t bow this time, at least not literally. But just days before his trip he genuflected to the Saudi royals and subordinated American victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks as though they were subjects as well.
