Obama’s bizarre behavior in bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia is all the more interesting considering King Abdullah had this to say to Baba Wawa back in 2005:
One of the more visible gestures he ((King Abdullah) has made is departing from the traditional royal protocol of having his subjects kiss his hand. “I have tremendous distaste for such matters because I believe that one only bows before God, not another human being,” he said.
So hard to tell from day-to-day whether Obama is as stupid as his policies and actions or whether he knows, understands, and has planned his stupid policies and actions!
Is he that stupid or that calculatingly sly?
UPDATE: More info on the disgusting display from The Obama File:
This disgraceful. An American should stand erect and polite, and shake hands like a free man. No American should ever show ANY deference to ANY monarch. No monarch, including Elizabeth, have 1% of the legitimacy of of an American president. They don’ t even come close.
Remember, King Abdullah’s Saudi regime spends billions of dollars each year promoting Wahhabism, one of fundamentalist Islam’s most extreme movements. Fifteen of the 9-11 terrorists were Saudi Wahabbis……
…….”Kissing hands is alien to our values and morals, and is not accepted by free and noble souls,” Abdullah told a delegation from Baha, in southwest Saudi Arabia, which came to the royal palace to offer congratulations on his accession. “It also leads to bowing, which is a violation of God’s law. The faithful bow to no one but God.”
You got that Obama, not only did you offend all real Americans, you offended Allah, too.
This will certainly make Obama the laughingstock of the G20, if not all of the Western Hemisphere.
