Obama's Cairo Speech: The Money Quotes, Translated

Here's a few of Obama's key lines from his Cairo speech, which followed his kneepad tour of the Middle East (except where it involves Israel, of course, where Obama showed off his well-honed left-wing Jew-bashing skills). What he said, and what it really means:

No single nation should pick and choose which nations hold nuclear weapons."

Translates to: " We are perfectly comfortable allowing the mad mullahs of Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon"

Hamas has “
to play a role in fulfilling Palestinian aspirations, and to unify the Palestinian people.”

Translates to: "We are comfortable with a terrorist entity next to a democracy. They are equal"

"I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal. "

Translates to: "Kudos for keepin' the bitches in their place!"

"The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It is time for these settlements to stop"

Translates to: "Why won't you damed Jews just roll over and die already?"

"9/11 was an enormous trauma to our country. The fear and anger that it provoked was understandable, but in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our ideals."

Translates to: "We are no better than the poor misunderstood souls who flew planes into the World Trade Center. Heck, we're actually worse! We should have known better!"

"...any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail."

Translates as: "The United States is no better than - and morally equal to - Gaza, Somalia, Cuba, and Nazi Germany"

"... let me speak as clearly and plainly as I can about some specific issues that I believe we must finally confront together."

Translates to: "Let me warp the truth so that I may leave to your rapturous applause"

And finally:
"I am a Christian..."

Translates to: "I am a Muslim..."

Just offering this service, because, you know, his audience all around the world really only heard the translation. I'm providing it to you, because our media will not...
