Dubai lawyer offers job to Obama

Dubai, May 17 (IANS) An Emirati lawyer from Dubai has offered a job in his law firm to outgoing US President Barack Obama, so that he can become “closely acquainted” with the “meaning of tolerance of Islam” once he leaves the White House.

Eisa Bin Haidar made his proposal on Twitter, also promising to pay for the president’s air fare to the Gulf state.

Explaining his move, Haidar said to understand that Islam was a religion of tolerance, one should travel to the region and socialise with the locals.

“A faction of the American and Western media has constantly profiled Islam as a religion of terror and categorized Muslims as terrorists,” bin Haidar told Gulf News.

“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.”

In another tweet in Arabic, Haidar said he knew his offer was “a bit weird”, but Obama has to “live with Muslims to know them closely and away from political theatrics which are being spearheaded by the US”.

“Once he leaves his office at the White House, I offer President Obama work in my law firm and then he would come and live amongst Arabs and Muslims and learn the exact meaning of tolerance,” Haidar said.

Obama has some 250 days remaining in office.

  1. ” A faction of the America and Western media has constantly profiled Islam as a religion of terror and categorized Muslims as Terrorist” bin Haidar told Gulf news… and he continued that once Obama leaves office he should come to live with amongst Arabs and Muslims he will and learn the exact meaning of tolerance.

    This whole report does not make any sense.
    1. Though our Press is free, I do not know of anyone in the media/press that has categorized Muslims as terrorist and Islam as a religion of terror. There could have been guests on the show who have made some disparaging comments but that does not reflect the position of the media.

    2. President Obama ever since coming to office has constantly praised Islam, he has never ever said a single bad word about Islam and Muslims. At every opportunity he gets he praises Islam, even to the extent that he has never condemned ISIS and their operative, and on the contrary he says these people distort the peaceful teachings of this religion of tolerance, love and universal brotherhood.

    Hence, if he should invite and offer jobs in the Emirates, it should be to the “US and Western Media”, he could house them all in the Burj Khalifa and encourage they move their HQ to Emirates. But I have a few questions:

    1. Why are his fellow religionist blowing themselves up, gunning people down, stabbing people while all the time, every time screaming “Allahu Akhbar”?
    2. Are there any schools that could teach these violent Muslims, peaceful Islam?
    3. There are people of ALL faiths, Atheist, Agnostics, et, etc. there has never been a time when their belief systems had to defend themselves from accusations of being “terrorist”.
    4. We are watching live T.V on Qatar based Al Jazira while the terror attacks are actually taking place seeing the killing and hearing gun fire.

    Perhaps, the only solution is he could bring ALL the media from ALL over the world to the Emirates and censor live T.V, and leave Obama that useful idiot in his home state of Michigan.
