Obama can turn War into PeaceRobert Spencer finds another small howler in THE SPEECH.
Obama picked out of this one sentence that made it appear as if the Qur'an was simply counseling one to speak the truth, mindful of the divine presence. In reality, the passage is about the necessity to wage jihad warfare against unbelievers, and not to fail to perform this duty. He took a passage about warfare and division and passed it off as part of a call for us all to come together and sing kumbaya.
Yet neither Honest Ibe Hooper of CAIR nor any other Muslim spokesman is complaining today that Obama quoted the Qur'an out of context. How strange!
In the end of course it was never the point of the speech to be accurate. And probably there is no point in Robert Spencer actually doing a careful reading of a speech written with such a careless disregard for accuracy.
