For all his poise, Barack Obama comes across as a 14-year-old proponent of world government when he discusses foreign policy. Now, Sen. Obama has announced--again--that as president he would convene a meeting of the Muslim minds to "bridge the gap" between West and Islam.
He doesn't have to wait to become president to attend such a meeting. Iran's ambassador to the Netherlands has just announced he is inviting all of the Muslim ambassadors to The Netherlands to come together to "discuss" Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders' (newest member of my anti-jihad pantheon) upcoming 10-minute film on the Koran.
According to a Dutch newspaper, the Iranian ambassador "warned the Netherlands that the lives of its troops in Afghanistan may be endangered by Wilders. The newspaper yesterday quoted him as saying that the Afghans would `regard the Dutch troops as representatives of people who besmirch the Koran.' "
Now, there's a Muslim leader with something to teach. If our Democratic -candidate compatriot could only wangle an invite to this Muslim convocation he just might get a better feel for the West-Islam "gap"--before he falls in.
