Robert Spencer at Frontpage observes and comments upon this from Mr. Obama:
"We will convey," said Barack Obama to the Turkish Parliament Monday, "our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world -- including my own country." (emphasis added)
Would Mr. Obama kindly explain just how Islam shaped the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution?
While we're at it, perhaps a reporter from the one or two remaining pro-statist hardcopy newspapers can ask Mr. Obama something like this: Sir, what is the evidence for your proposition?
Think of it, Mr. Reporter, as your good deed for the day. The Turks, among others, may be confused.
