The President to receive a copy of the Koran.

CAIR to send Koran to Obama in gratitude for Cairo speech
Well done, good and faithful servant, say the Hamas-linked unindicted co-conspirators to Obama for his disastrous Cairo speech. Will he refuse their gift of this Koran, in light of their unindicted co-conspirator status, their refusal to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups, the jihad terror convictions of several of their former officials, and the Islamic supremacist statements made by some of their other officials? What do you think?

"A Thank You, and a Koran, for Obama," by Andrea Fuller for the New York Times, June 30 (thanks to Axel):

President Obama will soon receive a thank-you gift for his speech to the Muslim world in Cairo. Inspired by the address, in which Mr. Obama quoted the Koran, the Council on American-Islamic Relations plans to distribute 100,000 copies of the Koran to national, state and local leaders.
The council’s national executive director, Nihad Awad, said at a news conference in Washington today that the speech, in which Mr. Obama called for the end to mutual suspicion between Americans and Muslims, was “inspiring” and “historic.”

The council is soliciting donations to pay for the books; at the national convention of the Islamic Society of North America on July 5, the name of one donor will be chosen as sponsor of the Koran that will be sent to Mr. Obama.

In a public opinion survey done by the council, almost 60 percent of Americans said they were “not very knowledgeable” or “not at all knowledgeable” about Islam. Mr. Awad said that the organization hopes to educate Americans about Islam to combat prejudice.

I'm all for that, and hereby volunteer my services to help in this great effort. My book The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran will be out this fall, so Mr. Awad can't say I'm not doing my part!
