Obama bows down to Saudi King

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by misterno, Apr 4, 2009.

  1. Obama's seems naive when it comes to these matters but it's really that he doesn't take them seriously. He's more interested in results than in gestures and ceremony.

    Note that he got his way at the G-20 contrary to the predictions of his critics.

    A BTW, you should check out 'Honest' Abe's record on slavery; you might be shocked.
     
  2. JDL

    JDL

    Abe's record not as good as people think :eek:
     
  3. The King salutes Obama as "selamun alyekum"

    Obama responds "Aleykum selam"

    Only muslims say this to each other, I know it because I am muslim too

    So why is Obama behave like a muslim in Middle East and like christian in the US.

    And what is up with that bowing all the way?
     
  4. Well he knows the customs and there is nothing wrong with that.

    At least there is no evidence that he, unlike bush was caught holding hands.

  6. I wonder if you are a Saudi King do you get a blowjob with that.:D
     
  7. Did you guys realize that Obama's bowing is not mentioned in any major US media?

    All international media has it.
     
  8. He didn't get shit at the summit. No troops for the Mid East. All they did was pledge another Trillion dollars.

    Obama is only interested in gestures and ceremony since he believes that is all that matters.
     
  9. Nonsense.

    I am Canadian, born in Europe and was raised as a Christian although I don't believe in a deity. In the early to mid-90s, I worked in Saudi Arabia for 3 years as a corporate banker in Jeddah. The exchange you refer to is simply common courtesy. A greeting. I engaged in such pleasantries with a number of my clients when we met. The Saudis are very big on outward displays of courtesy and respect. It was a sign of courtesy and respect that Obama returned the volley and greeted the king in the manner that he did.

    I'm surprised that you, a supposed Muslim, would write such a post.
