Default US appoints envoy to Muslim world

Quote:
The US State Department on Friday announced the nomination of Indian-born Farah Pandith as a new envoy to deal with the Muslim world.
Quote:
Pandith will "be responsible for executing the administration's efforts to engage with Muslims around the world on a people-to-people and organizational level," the department said in a statement.
Quote:
Pandith immigrated to the United States as a child from Indian Kashmir's summer capital, Srinagar. Previously she worked in the European bureau as a special adviser for outreach to Muslim communities in Europe.
Quote:
In his inauguration speech on January 20, President Barack Obama vowed to seek a "new way forward" with the Muslim world "based on mutual interest and respect,"
Gee I thought The Muslim countries didn't respect women.

They don't - Obama sent a woman because it would insult the Muslim world... no, wait, Obama is a Muslim (its a fact, I've read the emails from the religious right that prove it) who is going to hand over the keys to the Kingdom (the U.S.) to the muslim world, and doom us all...

it is US that would never suspect that a woman was capable of carrying out his dastardly plan... after all, it was Pakistan that elected a female president before the U.S., which still hasn't.

Obama may be on the right track here since dealing with Muslim countries is very tedious at best when it is on a one to one basis. It might just be that you have to deal with them on a religious basis in order to win their hearts and minds.

And it might make them see women in a different light in time. Obama has a lot of hope for change remember...

I don't want 72 virgins... I want 72 dirty, naughty, slutty college girls that stripped to pay for school and slept with their teachers for grades. 72 far-sighted, sex-crazed, bisexual nymphomaniacs with low self-esteem and even lower tolerance to alcohol, who know more about sex than the authors of the Kama Sutra.



because it was too late to edit my other post...

not to be too critical of this choice but a large part of the muslim worlddoes not have much reguard for the Indians. To make matters worse, a compliant muslim woman is not equal to a man of simular stature. I would have been better use someone like Hillary. Not onyl will they respect her more but it would show a little more respect for the Islamic tradition. (unless the intent is to force a change in that tradition from the start.)
