I feel a lot better now. For awhile there I was getting worried that we wouldn’t be able to make friends with all those jihadis who want to kill us, subjugate us, or convert us to Islam. Rashad Hussain is America’s new Muslim Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Conference in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia. Hussain is a Koranic scholar. His new job is to bridge the gap between the United States and the World of Islam. We’re all going to be friends. Hoo-Wah.
That Obama is right on the job, folks, and he hand-picked just the guy to help us all get along – especially in Saudi Arabia, where there’s so much more corporate partnership work to be accomplished. Maybe we’ll be allowed to carry Bibles in public there someday, or even celebrate Christmas and Valentine’s Day in Mecca. Hope and Change are working, now. Just think – back in early 1942 if President Roosevelt had found the right “Mein Kampf”- reading Deutsche-speaking diplomat, and sent him to Berlin as America’s special Nazi Envoy to work it out, all that WWII messiness could have been avoided. Gosh.
Rashad Hussain, President Obama’s new special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, was an avid high school debater in Plano, Tex., where he grew up.
His debate partner and best friend was a classmate named Josh Goldberg, meaning that at the end of many tournaments, the judge would announce “Goldberg-Hussain” as the cultural odd couple who had won the argument. “People got a kick out of it,” Hussain said in a recent interview. “We joked that one day we would have the solution to the peace process.” The two remain close friends…”
This is so great. It’s brilliant. Don’t you see? Hussain and his high school debate partner have proven to the World of Islam that Jews and Muslims can really be friends. Maybe Hamas, Hizbullah, the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaida, the Taliban, Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Iran, Iraq and all the rest will reconsider their final instructions from Muhammad, call a beer summit to re-write the Koran and Hadithe, maybe change their minds about annihilating Israel and killing all of the Jews, not to mention the rest of us Infidels. I’m telling you, this Obama is one special guy. Gimme a cigar.
“…Since taking office, Obama has adopted an approach to broaden the ways in which the United States engages the Islamic world, moving from a policy focused mostly on counterterrorism to one that includes partnerships with Muslim countries and communities in education, health, science and commerce.
Hussain, 31, will be the face of that policy in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, where the Islamic Conference has it headquarters, and in the other capitals of its 56 member countries. His is an appropriately young face for an American representative to the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, the majority of whom are younger than he is…”
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why FDR did not think of something like this in the 1930s. Everything would have been so much easier. But then, you gotta admit, there’s only one Barack Hussein Obama. We can all sleep well tonight.
