Obama Bows To Saudi King Abdullah

Oh well, pictures speak louder than words.

What can I say? – I already wrote a blog on “Obama Surrenders to Jihadists” http://israel-shalom.com/blog/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=294 . But if you didn’t believe me then, you can view it now.

President Obama greeted the king of Saudi Arabia with a full bow from the waist, a move one commentator described as a violation of protocol and not worthy of the office he holds.
The situation developed as leaders of the world attending the G20 summit in London assembled for a photograph to mark the event.

In this first image, after the king extended his hand while Obama approached, Obama bends from the waist until his head is nearly at the monarch’s waist.

That is certainly what it looks like, and it’s a mistake not just because it violates protocol but because of the symbolism it sends. No US president is supposed to bow down to a foreign head of state because it indicates submission, and the American president does not submit to anyone. But here is Obama, bowing to King Abdullah.


Leading conservative blogger Michelle Malkin and Dakota Voice both wrote of their outrage at the President’s deference to a foreign monarch.

“The whole thing is embarrassing. It’s like the ‘American Hillbillies go to Europe’,” Malkin wrote.

Shalom – Lilo
