[Emirati lawyer Eisa Bin Haidar] has offered the US President Barack Obama a job in his law firm in Dubai in an attempt to familiarise him with the tolerance of Islam.
“A faction of the American and western media has constantly profiled Islam as a religion of terror and categorised Muslims as terrorists. Well that is absolutely not true. Islam is a religion of tolerance, understanding, forgiveness and acceptance … it is not a religion of terror and Muslims are not terrorists.
“The only way for westerners to accept and understand Islam and Muslims is to come and live with us and amongst us. Once he [Obama] leaves his office at the White House, I offer President Obama to work in my law firm and then he would come and live amongst Arabs and Muslims and learn the exact meaning of tolerance.”
Robert Spencer comments:
He doesn’t explain why so many Muslims keep screaming “Allahu akbar” while killing people and blowing things up. …
[I]f he really wants all this noxious profiling and categorizing to stop, he should go to the Muslims who believe that they should commit acts of violence against unbelievers in order to please Allah, and explain to them why they’re wrong. But he almost certainly will not do that.
