Obama's NASA Muslim Strategy Echoes His Nutty Cairo Speech

Student of history, Barack Obama, spoke to the Muslim World in Cairo last year.
During his speech Obama congratulated the Muslim World for their many accomplishments.
Obama’s Cairo Speech – The Transcript:

As a student of history, I also know civilisation’s debt to Islam. It was Islam – at places like Al-Azhar University – that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities that developed the order of algebra; our magnetic compass and tools of navigation; our mastery of pens and printing; our understanding of how disease spreads and how it can be healed. Islamic culture has given us majestic arches and soaring spires; timeless poetry and cherished music; elegant calligraphy and places of peaceful contemplation. And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

Unfortunately, Dear Leader was once again repeating Far Left talking points and not facts.
Here is what he forgot to mention:

** The compass- The use of a magnetic compass as a direction finder occurred sometime before 1044, but incontestable evidence for the use of the compass as a navigational device did not appear until 1119 in China. The earliest reference to an iron fish-like compass in the Islamic world occurs in a Persian talebook from 1232- Wikipedia.

** The pen- Ancient Egyptians developed writing on papyrus scrolls when scribes used thin reed brushes or reed pens. The quill pen was used in Qumran, Judea to write some of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and then introduced into Europe by around 700 AD before the founding of Islam. Ma’ād al-Mu’izz, the Fatimid Caliph of Egypt, was provided a fountain pen 250 years later- Wikipedia.

** Printing- Woodblock printing is a technique for printing text, images or patterns used widely throughout East Asia and originating in China in antiquity as a method of printing on textiles and later paper- Wikipedia.

** Spread of disease and how it is healed- It’s not clear how Islam contributed to the understanding of disease but today Muslim Sharia Councils in Nigeria and Pakistan have opposed vaccinations in their districts.

** Arches- Arches appeared as early as the 2nd millennium BC in Mesopotamian brick architecture, but their systematic use started with the Ancient Romans who were the first to apply the technique to a wide range of structures- Wikipedia.

** Religious Tolerance- No churches or synagogues have been destroyed in Saudi Arabia since it was established in 1932 —because none are allowed. There is no declared Muslim state, which offers full civil rights to members of other religions. – Front Page.

** Racial Equality- Muhammad and many of his companions bought, sold, freed, and captured slaves. At the end of the 19th century, a shift in Muslim thought and interpretation of the Qur’an occurred, and slavery became seen as opposed to Islamic principles of justice and equality. This interpretation has not been accepted by the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia. Slavery claiming the sanction of Islam is documented presently in the African republics of Chad, Mauritania, Niger, Mali and Sudan.- Wikipedia.

A year later after this speech in Cairo we find out Obama’s NASA starategy includes making Muslims feel good about their non-accomplishments and non-contributions to science. Except that now the Obama Administration claims that is not their strategy… Even though it’s been confirmed.

    Did the Hagarines and Ishmaelites also give Oilbama a method of removing an extremely large pool of oil from an extremely large body of water?

  • I think we should find a way to make Muslims feel good about burying women up to their breasts and throwing stones at them until they are dead.


  • Chisum

    Oh, come on people. Muslims are first in some things.

    Case in point:

    Hey, look, Pakistan isn’t just the leader in suicide bombings, they’re the #1 country in the world for porn searches. And not just any old porn either!


  • Islam paved the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment as much as they landed on the moon!

    Clearly, the political manipulations that got the poor man into the Whitehouse aren’t going to get him through that time. History will be unkind to Obama because he has no ability to learn or process negative feedback. The man has been crippled by affirmative action just as so many others have suffered a similar fate. And it goes on.

  • Pat the First

    The B.O. administration is forcing us to realize our worse fears.

  • StandUpChuck

    Hey, he has to do something to make himself feel good about his chosen religion. Praying to a child molester three times a day can wear you down.

    Opus #6 –

    They already feel fine about stoning women. Done and dusted!

    I hear that the first female Muslim astronaut will be wearing a Burka over her space suit.

    If it floats off of her during her space walk, the Muslim men will pray for an asteroid to hit her.

  • Militant Conservative

    I am reminded of the Muppets skit, “Pigs in Space”.
    LOL gimme a break. powder is dry.

  • Neo

    Victor Davis Hanson channels Charles Bolden (and Obama) …

    We are not killing “terrorists” or “Islamists” in Waziristan; instead our “overseas contingency operations” are aimed at reminding Muslims that their own past contributions to science have led to breakthroughs like Hellfire missiles.

    Chuck #6: That would be five times a day.

    Mass murdering, terrorist sympathizers calling themselves the Cordova Initiative (that would be meant to conquer Spain for the Umma) are trying to build (where did they get the $$$$?) a mosque across from Ground Zero – basically to rub our noses in it.

    If we let it happen, we have to hair on our arses.

    Effing PC lies! They’re everywhere.

    The facts: the mass murderers destroyed everywhere and everything they brutally conquered.

    Their contributions to culture and learning were to have seized the famed libraries and universities in Alexandria, Ephesus, etc., enslaved and/or murdered the scribes and librarians, and then said they wrote all the books and made all the discoveries.

    Obama is Katrina. No, he’s worse! He is destroying the entire economy with his hype and fundamental change.

  • “Islam paved the way for Europe’s Renaissance and Enlightenment” by driving out all the Greek scholars from Constantinople and forcing them to relocate in the West.

  • gus

    He forgot to mention Kenya putting a man on the moon.
    And Indonesia creating penicilin.

  • Sandy

    New CBS poll — just 13% of Americans believe Obama’s policies have helped them. I guess those 13% must be Illegals.

    We are ready for a Divorce — Obama and the American people have irreconciliable differences.

    listen closely @ the 4:07 mark..

    i’m still waiting for someone to please inform me as to whether
    or not Muslims fulfill Zakat is any business of a US President??

    how about Constitutional?? /sarc/


  • Corporal Vere

    Here’s the TRUTH.

    The mass murdering moslem Omar was caliph. In 640 Anno Domine, he conquered Alexandria. The pure genius learned of “a great library containing all the knowledge of the world” from his chief murderer who asked the boss for instructions. Il duce said (about the books), “they will either contradict the Koran, in which case they are heresy, or they will agree with it, so they are superfluous.” So, all the texts were burned as tinder for the bathhouses (they preferred hot water when buggering little boys) of the city. It took six months to burn all the books.

  • whit seven

    IF all these claims were true it would actually be rather embarrassing for the muslim world: basically, you had all this stuff and now you don’t. What did you do? And why did allah cause you to deteriorate?

    just a sample:

    Obama Administration pushing Sharia Law in Kenya

    [“Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.”

    “Within one year facilitate the establishment of a
    Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters.”

    “Popularize Islam, the only true religion, in the Coast and North Eastern Regions by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes.”]


    ipso facto: it’s not the only country being Islamized.. and unless you want your great grandchildren or theirs living in the Ummah States of Allah, you had better believe we are under attack from within by Radical Islam, and whether he’s doing it intentionally or not matters not, they are most certainly being aided & abetted by the President of the US, Barack Hussein Obama..

    [Abdul-Malik also makes no bones about discussing how the election of President Obama is a step forward in the project of Islamization and the long term goal of Islamist domination which falls right in lock-step with
    that of the Muslim Brotherhood as revealed in their manifesto.


    “…even under the pressures that you and I know about, the deen of Islam is growing because people see even within all of this struggle it is better to be a Muslim under these conditions than to be a kaffir under any conditions… before Allah closes our eyes for the last time you will see Islam move from being the second largest religion in America-that’s where we are now- to being the first religion in America.”]

    Harold Koh Confirmed

    [have no idea how much lomger some of this info will be available as more & more videos & article’s are being sucked up by Obama’s black hole machine..]

    Obowma, sent to try and destroy America.

    Restore Constitutional rule.

  • MVH

    Hmmm… The godling may be a student of history, but he’s no historical scholar.

    The “student of history” proved his lack of knowledge when he said, “And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality….” He forgot to add that tolerance, when it comes to Islam, is a one-way street. Convert now, or in a couple of years. But, convert or die.

    “Except that now the Obama Administration claims that is not their strategy….”

    Obama rethought his NASA strategy after he watched this:

    I hope BO keeps talking and talking and talking. It’s doing wonders for his poll numbers.

    He’s (-18) at Rasmussen today.

    How low can he go?


  • wanumba

    “Student of history.”

    Is this the speech old Zuckerdude wrote for Obama?
    There’s no verifiable record of Obama being a student of ANYTHING. No transcripts, no attendance records, ZIPPO.

    We’ve got a record of his Senate votes: “present.” but can’t confirm he was even THAT for all his supposed years of “school.”

  • Badger

    Algebra comes from India. It was just “islamified” and received an arabic name.

  • Badger

    As for religious tolerance and racial equality…

    Other religions were tolerated, as long as they paid extra taxes. They were not give the same rights, however, and non-muslims (aka infidels) don’t have the same rights as muslims under sharia law.

    Same with women, btw. A muslim woman’s voice counts only half of a muslim man’s in a sharia court.

    there’s this:

    Breaking The War Mentality by Barack Obama

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to restore a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar Republic. In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless, the Western World did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet dictators today, as someone who leaves the established order in place.]

    Young Obama Wrote Article Blaming
    America For ‘Growing Threat of War’

    [If Obama still has this sensibility, he could be poised to take American foreign policy sharply to the left, notwithstanding the centrist foreign policy team he has assembled. Moreover, since Obama didn’t recognize the Soviet menace during the Cold War and blamed the possibility of war entirely on the United States, there’s good reason to think that today he could lack the moral clarity needed to fight radical Islam.]

    also lest not forget the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who not only
    worked with, but is still as much of an influence as Hitler is today..


  • Corporal Vere

    As a student of History:

    “For more than 1,050 years until the Siege of Vienna (1683), Mohammedans incessantly murdered hundreds of thousands of Christians, made slaves and eunuchs of Christians for the pleasure of their caliphs; burned down or sacked the holiest churches in Christendom; robbed and killed thousands of Christians on holy pilgrimage; brutally sacked Jerusalem and all the cities of the Middle East; and pillaged Israel, North Africa and Central and Western Europe. Beginning with Mohammed around 630 and continuing with Abu Bakr and many caliphs, Mohammedan hordes conquered, destroyed and subjugated vast areas through unjust invasions, massacres, and bloody war.”

    They started it again in 2001! we’re going to finish them this time.

    oh, they didn’t start again they just took a respite, and don’t forget
    all the attacks over the previous decades ie: the 1993 WTC attack..

    Here are some Bible verses that Pres. Obama avoids:
    Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): “It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury – how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!”
    Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under “a servant who becomes king.”
    And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: “let thy words be few…a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.”
    Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he’s destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
    Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!
    For the brain-dead, pro-murder politicians in Washington DeCeased who fix Social Security by voting to abort millions who otherwise could be paying into SS (!), I have two pro-life slogans I thought up:
    “Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms – and legs and ears and eyes etc.!” and “Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!”
    For more insights, Google “Obama Supports Public Depravity” and “Mayor ‘Napoleon’ Bloomberg.”

    [Foregoing item seen on the internet!]

  • Well.. it’s a big deal. The US is a christian country. Islam comes not on its on but on the expenses of others.
    Supporting Islam in the name of multi-calturalizm is supporting all values.. which basically suggest you have no values.
