It comes as no surprise, though it is revealing, that of all the religions in America, the one giving the president great approval is the one of which he speaks fondly. In the latest Gallup poll, taken July 31st, Islamic Americans say they approve of the job the president is doing by a 3-to-1 ratio. War rages (he’s keeping his “eye on the ball”) and Guantanamo remains open, but these issues, trumped by a narrative which “softens” Islam, don’t seem to pique the domestic Muslim populace.
From iftar events to Ramadan messages to Eric Holder’s stuttering refusal to say “radical Islam,” the narrative is appeasement. Feisal Abdul Rauf, the Ground Zero, pro-Sharia imam, is currently in the Middle East – “reaching out” – on our dime, and the president, making no distinction between a mosque at Ground Zero (landing gear tore through the edifice) and the right of Muslims to “religious freedom,” acts like we’re at peace.
No wonder he’s revered by Muslims. Free to infiltrate society, take advantage of freedom and gain a foothold in America, they could not ask for more.
Now if anyone can explain why 61% of Jews support the president, that will surely come as a surprise.
