Part of the Obama administration's national security strategy for almost four years has included avoiding the possibility of offending Muslims. Despite the administration's claims that the anti-Muslim online video should not be an excuse for anyone to violently attack the United States, President Barack Obama will address the General Assembly at the United Nations on Tuesday and denounce the film trailer. In the meantime, leaders of Islamic nations will be at the UN and demand that anti-blasphemy laws be established.
President Obama's remarks will happen as Americans continue to wonder why the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya remained unprotected during a deadly terrorist attack. Americans are also disappointed over the numerous apologies the administration has offered Muslim countries since the beginning of President Obama's term. Many witnessed Mr. Obama apologizing for the United States to Islamic countries for "stereotyping" Muslim culture. President Obama stressed in his 2009 speech in Cairo: (VIDEO)
"So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn't. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."
