Obama: Thou shall not lie

By Khalid Amayreh

".....I strongly believe that America's ugly crimes in the Muslim world, which are often justified in the name of Christianity, give a bad name for Christianity just as the ugly crimes committed by some nominally Muslim terrorists give a bad name for Islam. Which effectively puts the US government on a morally equal footing with the terrorists? The only difference is that in the terrorists' case, the crime is called "terror," while in America's case, the same crime is called "war."

But there is another difference: America's crimes are probably supported by a majority of hopelessly ignorant and/ or misinformed Americans, while al-Qaeda's crimes are rejected by the vast majority of Muslims. I know what I am saying because I am a Muslim who happens to be living in the heart of the Muslim world.

So, Mr. Obama, I suggest you stop this mendacious propaganda, this "holier-than-thou-attitude" about the US being "the" representative of light while its enemies being the embodiment of darkness....."
