June 4, 2009, in Egypt:
Islamic law treats women as property, like cattle; under Islamic law, pedophilia, rape and slavery are acceptable; wars of conquest are encouraged; a state religion, Islam, is mandated, and other religions are either banned or forcibly destroyed through discrimination and taxation. And so on. Islam and the ideals upon which America was founded are mutually exclusive; America will not be safe as long as Islam seeks absolute submission in this world and in the hereafter, and Islam will not be safe as long as people subjugated by it see America alive and free, a beacon of hope to the whole world. As a so-called Constitutional scholar, President Obama of all people should know this. His words here are exactly the kind of al-taqqiya lies that Islam encourages when the telling of such lies will further the goals of Islam.
