One big difference is that Jesus did not curtsy to world dictators like Obama curtsied to the Saudi king. Maybe a little curtsy to Herod may have even saved him a whole lot of pain.

I believe that most of the world's dictators today do perceive Obama as weak though. Putin understands fully that America will not be opposing them in their sphere of interest and Russian satellite countries are now adjusting their interest accordingly. Ahmadinejad and the Iranian revolutionary guard fully understand that they could do what they please as far as America will stop them from doing so, and Israel knows too that if anyone is going to stop Iran, it will have to be under Israeli leadership.
similarly, Saudi Arabia is talking to Russia abotu nukes, and in Latin America, it is now Chavez who is the force to be reckoned with. For sure an Obama regime will do nothing to stop him, and will even enable his allies in the area, such as in Honduras.

I see unilateral disarmament and appology tours as being signs of weakness. More importantly, America's enemies and allies too have come to pretty much the same conclusion.

I don't want to hijack the thread, but there is some stuff that is just not right, Islam wise.

Hey Fantine, did you know that the admin for the website you posted is a former Catholic from Ireland? I found another site that he runs and looks like it may be a bit less than genuine. Are you familiar with the concept of abrogation in Islamic theology? If you want to know the final word on a subject you must consult the latest revelation on that subject. To do that you need to consult your chart showing order of revelation then check to see what that book said on the topic. One must remember the Koran in arranged by size of the book not by chronology.

If you truly want learn about Islam, look for sites for Muslims that are in English, unless you can read classical Arabic. Also if you have one in your town, go to Muslim bookstore and walk to the back and look for stuff for Muslims. One book that might be of benefit is my Syyid Qutb called 'Milestones'. A member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Qutb gets into how the implementation of Islamic prinicles should take place and how to know when you have reached a milestone.

Post Saturday Night Live on Nobel Peace Prize Award

Fairly gentle satire of the Nobel Peace Prize award to President Obama, although they do get to the only reason for the award: Obama is not George Bush. With the satire of a done-nothing presidency last week, Saturday Night Live is helping to inaugurate a new phase in the Obama saga, one in which he can no longer assume that comics will treat him as off-limits simply because of their usually leftist political sympathies.

The SNL satire basically had Obama say he received the award because he wasn't GWB.

Well, even if that is the case (as Obama-haters say it is) it shows how desperate the world was to have an American President who could exert leadership, who could inspire other countries, who could bring them together to work for peace.

It might show that they were even as desperate as we were for a new administration.

I think the SNL Nobel Peace Prize satire and the other satire that charts the fact that he hasn't made good on his campaign promises (hasn't done anything so far) were meant to be light hearted and funny. And they were.

Prize fools -Times Online

When Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, the satirist Tom Lehrer remarked that he saw no further need to perform as the award had made satire obsolete. By offering the world’s most prestigious political accolade to Barack Obama, a man who has held office for barely nine months, the Norwegian Nobel Committee is in danger of putting the entire comedy industry out of business.
The committee has put hope above results, promise above achievement. The prize undermines the selfless triumphs of earlier winners. Indeed, the award’s obvious political intent looks partisan, a signal of European relief at the end of the Bush presidency.

In many countries, hard-line interpretations of the Islamic law allow people to be stoned to death, beheaded or have their limbs amputated.
