Obama praises Islam-supporting comic series

Comic book publisher praised for reflecting 'tolerance of Islam'

Washington (CNN) -- Kuwaiti publisher Naif al-Mutawa is having a week even his comic book superheroes might envy.

On Monday, President Obama singled him out for special praise for promoting international understanding with his "The 99" comics.

"His comic books have captured the imagination of so many young people with superheroes who embody the teachings and tolerance of Islam," Obama said.

And on Tuesday, Mutawa was treated like a rock star at the president's Summit on Entrepreneurship, with people lining up to get his flashy, superhero-embossed business cards and polite words of encouragement.

The summit, a couple of blocks from the White House, is a follow-up to a speech in Egypt in June 2009 in which Obama sought to reach out to the Muslim world and offer specific help, mentoring and investment -- and try to polish the U.S. image. Scores of business experts and wannabe entrepreneurs traveled to Washington from the Middle East, Indonesia and other Muslim-majority regions.

Obama is one of two things:

1) A muslim

2) A dhimmi

Neither one is a good thing for this country...

I’m sick to death of this idiot praising Islam and muslims and then he refuses to hand over documents pertaining to the foot hood shooting, black racist panthers let go.
won’t say islamic terrorists.
first phone call to Abbas
first major address not to this nation but to the muslim world

postponement of charges against the USScole mastermind

the list is endless and yet NOTHING from the MSM and of course their supporters are just too thick to see this as per usual

Yes, islam is so tolerant that apostasy is a capital crime.

"The animation series will be announced next week. We will be in your living room. We'll be in your living room, and you're going to want to watch it," Mutawa said

We'll make you want to watch it. Or else....

I wonder if they have any reference to “JOOS” in those comic books?

Seriously though, imagine if you will, Roosevelt praising comic books that depict Nazi Fascist propaganda to our children during WWII.

The "tolerance of Islam". One of us is living in an alternate universe. Just this little excerpt shows what a danger Obama is to our country.
