    NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World

    This just illustrates more of the foolish directions coming out of the White House:

    NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said: "... and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering,"

    Baloney! NASA and the USA doesn't need to do anything to make Muslim's "feel good"! That's not the business of NASA If it is then it's yet another agency that needs to be shut down.

    If another friendly nation has something to contribute let them be considered solely on the merits of their contribution - not some politically motivated act to make them "feel good" about "historic contribution". Let the record be whatever it is!

    What would be said, by the way, if "Christian" was substituted for "Muslim" in this statement of policy?

    Well it's obvious that the Spirit of Antichrist is on the move to promote a false religion.

    I think there would be controversy if NASA was seeking friendly relations with Christians. And I think the same question should be asked.."why?"

    The article is clear that this directive came from Obama. I am not sure why. But yes, this seems to be the work of the spirit of antichrist.

    Humm, they announced 7-800 million was going to be invested in eastern investment funds of some sort by the USA to increase good relations with Muslims.

    Now, now, you did not get the whole story. CNN just released an old tape 1500 years old found by the Dome of the Rock. On it a voice says, "This is Mohammad, beam me up Allah."

    From the OP... NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said: "... and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering,"

    Feeling good about one's contribution comes from making an actual contribution.

    This puts me in mind of the "Black is Beautiful" campaign to improve the self esteem of Black kids.

    Just repeating a mantra didn't improve anyone's self esteem.

    Accomplishing something did.

    Well, if we are fortunate, this is the first Muslim we will see going to space, Barack waving goodbye as he boards a flight to Mars.

    Yes, and that's why they're so upset over this stupid direction!
