Tidak akan ada seorang Islam pun yang akan mempercayai Presiden Amerika Syarikat.
Kebanyakan mereka anti-Islam. Sejarah mereka penuh dengan kezaliman terhadap Islam. Darah muslimin dan muslimat di Palestine, Syria, Lubnan, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan mengalir tanpa sebarang rasa belas kasihan.
Orang Islam disembelih dan dirogol di Bosnia Herzegovina dan Presiden Amerika Syarikat ketika itu hanya tengok dan lihat kekejaman orang-orang Kristian Serbia. Rakyat Palestine dibunuh oleh regim Zionis manakala rakyat Iraq dan Afghanistan dihukum sengsara kerana menyokong Saddam Hussien dan Taliban.
Tetapi hari ini di Kaherah, Barack Hussien Obama cuba untuk menyakinkan bahawa beliau bukan anti-Islam. Masa akan menentukan samada beliau berbeza dari presiden-presiden Amerika Syarikat yang lain yang selama ini bertanggungjawab membunuh umat Islam di seluruh dunia.
Berikut ialah antara kandungan ucapan Obama untuk renungan kita bersama:
# I'm grateful for your hospitality and the hospitality of the people of Egypt. And I'm also proud to carry with me the good will of the American people and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: Assalamu-alaikum.
## I've come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap and share common principles, principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
### As the Holy Quran tells us, Be conscious of God and speak always the truth.
* Now, part of this conviction is rooted in my own experience. I'm a Christian. But my father came from a Kenyan family that includes generations of Muslims. As a boy, I spent several years in Indonesia and heard the call of the azaan at the break of dawn and at the fall of dusk.
** As a young man, I worked in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith. As a student of history, I also know civilization's debt to Islam. It was Islam at places like Al-Azhar that carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe's renaissance and enlightenment. It was innovation in Muslim communities...
*** The Holy Quran teaches that whoever kills an innocent is as -- it is as it if has killed all mankind.
^ And the Holy Quran also says whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind.
^^ The enduring faith of over a billion people is so much bigger than the narrow hatred of a few. Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism; it is an important part of promoting peace.
^^^ But I also know that human progress cannot be denied. There need not be contradictions between development and tradition. Countries like Japan and South Korea grew their economies enormously while maintaining distinct cultures. The same is true for the astonishing progress within Muslim majority countries from Kuala Lumpur to Dubai.
@ This truth transcends nations and peoples, a belief that isn't new, that isn't black or white or brown, that isn't Christian or Muslim or Jew. It's a belief that pulsed in the cradle of civilization and that still beats in the hearts of billions around the world. It's a faith in other people. And it's what brought me here today.
@@ We have the power to make the world we seek, but only if we have the courage to make a new beginning, keeping in mind what has been written. The Holy Quran tells us, Mankind, we have created you male and a female. And we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.
@@@ The Talmud tells us, The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace.The Holy Bible tells us, Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
