'Muslims have suffered the most at the

President Barack Obama delivered an extensive denunciation of a 'crude and disgusting' anti-Islam video made in California, telling the United Nations that 'it is time to heed the words of Gandhi' and declaring: 'The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.' Obama strongly condemned the protests that spread across the Middle East and the murder of Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, branding them 'an assault on America'. But he stated that the unrest and murderous attacks were the result of the low-budget video, which had 'sparked outrage throughout

Indeed, Muslims have suffered the most.

That's because Islam is so insufferably extreme.

Holy mackerel! Did he just say that the future doesn't belong to Christians? Or even Americans? How many Americans believe Mohammed was a prophet? No Christians believe mohammed was a prophet!

Thanks Obama voters, thanks a lot.

"Muslims have suffered the most at the hands of extremism."

Hmmm... would that be Catholic extremism? No...how about Baptist? Amish? Lutheran? Buddhist?.... no.. none of those....hmmm.

Muslim extremism! Seems to be an in-house problem that all those moderate Muslims can't seem to take care of.

So...everyone suffers.

O gets one right! Muslims HAVE suffered the most at the hands of extremism...unfortunately for them, it is MUSLIM extremism they have suffered the most from.

But, like a self-extinguishing flame, this problem seems capable of sorting itself out.

Oh, so the extremism of Muslims is a non-issue? How clueless can a person be?

There is NO excuse for their behavior. No other religion riots and kills people because they are mad about something, the Muslims need to learn to suck it up and shutup!

But if obama is reelected, I don't believe the United States, as we know it, will survive.
This is a defining moment in our history, and I just don't believe the voters will do the right thing.

Obama desperately needs history lessons. He talks as if he has never had one. I doubt there is any group of people in the history of man that has not been the brunt of intolerance at one time or another. Muslims are not unique,

Now that he has admitted it was a planned attack but is still willing to blame an unseen video, the only reason to listen to the transparently duplicitous fool - whether you're Islamist, Russian or Tea Party - is to see how low he will stoop. He has outdone even himself here.

Strawman alert. Was there any danger of the future belonging to Brice/Nakoula? Obama is describing a policy of supporting one and only one religion through the suppression of "slander" as defined by murderous religious supremacists in foreign countries.

Mohammed is not my prophet. Agreeing and promoting terms set by the most fanatical and murderous religion in the world should automatically disqualify any person from holding the office of President of the United States. Call me a starry-eyed idealist, but there have to be some votes and resolve in here somewhere. In the meantime, it's high time for Scorsese to remake his Last Temptation movie with the liberal prophet Mohammed as the subject.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning. And he protested to him his concerns about these comments,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday. The U.S., Psaki reaffirmed, maintains an “unshakable

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

First Lady Michelle Obama will be accompanied by her children and her mother on her trip to China, which begins today. But she won´t be accompanied by the press. "Michelle Obama’s trip to China starting on Wednesday will be nonpolitical, the White House says, a ´people-to-people exchange´ emphasizing the importance that both nations place on education. As if to underscore the point, no reporters are traveling with the first lady, and she does not plan to give interviews while there," reports the New York Times. The White House is defending the first lady bringing her family along for the ride by saying

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."

Michelle Obama arrived in China on Thursday for a weeklong visit that will steer clear of politics and instead focusing on education and community. [Snip] On Friday, she is to spend the day with Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, something which diplomats hope will build bridges between the two countries. ´I think this is a very good opportunity to improve the China-U.S. relations, as the first lady can represent the soft side of diplomacy,´ said Wang Dong, a political scientist at Peking University´s School of International Studies. ´Michelle Obama herself has been accomplished in areas such as

Warm temperatures, colorful wildflowers. What´s not to like, about early signs of spring? Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. He said that on average, the last frost of the year is happening about five days earlier than it did just five decades ago. Tucker said his conclusions are drawn from a fleet of Earth-observing satellites that have been monitoring our planet for more than 40 years. That satellite data combined with

First lady Michelle Obama will not take questions from reporters or give interviews during her tour of China that begins today, and members of the press corps who usually follows the first family everywhere have been banned from the trip. The resulting picture is one of an expensive, taxpayer-funded vacation for Mrs. Obama, her two daughters, and her mother – and not the official good-will journey the White House has promised. White House press officials won´t comment to MailOnline about whether the ban on media interviews applies equally to American journalists and Chinese reporters. ´How does this comport with the
