The nightmarish results of Muslim outreach

Islam’s miseries have never been America’s to solve

When President Obama entered office, he dreamed that his hope-and-change messaging and his references to his familial Islamic roots would win over the Muslim world. The soon-to-be Nobel Peace Prize laureate would make the United States liked in the Middle East. Then terrorism would decrease.

But, as with his approach to racial relations, Mr. Obama’s remedies proved worse than the original illness.

Mr. Obama gave his first presidential interview to Al Arabiya, noting that he has Muslims in his family. He implicitly blamed America’s strained relations with many Middle Eastern countries on his supposedly insensitive predecessor, George W. Bush.

The new message of the Obama administration was that the Islamic world was understandably hostile because of what America had done rather than what it represented.

Has America yet figured out that this 'progressive' utopian fantasy world does not (and never will) exist?
Will Americans ever grasp the fact that the heart of man is ultimately selfish and that this fact will prevent the utopian dream from ever being manifest?
All you have to do is look at history (even just a little bit of it) to see that it fails EVERY TIME.
Those who preside over the utopian society will prosper; the rest will be slaves.
