Lieberman uncertain of what Obama was saying to Muslim world

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

CNS News:

“America is a country of Muslims, Jews, Christians and non-believers,” Obama said on Al-Arabiya. “Regardless of your faith, people have common hopes and common dreams.”

“I think what (Obama) was doing is really something different,” Leiberman said when asked by CNSNews.com how Obama’s reference to non-believers might be perceived by Islamic extremists who espouse the belief that killing non-believers is justified. “It’s interesting he used that term. I hadn’t thought of it from that perspective.

“I think what the president was saying is we are a very religious nation,” said Lieberman, who spoke at the Brookings Institute in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. “We have Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and we have people who don’t believe in anything. They are part of us too.

“Maybe that’s what he was saying,” Lieberman said. “Not to the extremists, but to the people in the Muslim countries that may not be believers themselves, that we represent a totally inclusive form of government.”
