Our take: President Barack Obama has a lot on his shoulders with an upcoming election, recent unrest of the Muslim populated countries and his speech on Tuesday in front of the United Nations. Dave Boyer of the Washington Times details Obama's situation:
"A year after President Obama largely defused a diplomatic showdown at the United Nations over Palestinian statehood, his difficulties with the Muslim world are multiplying rapidly as he prepares to address the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday.
Across the Middle East and beyond, protesters have stormed U.S. diplomatic posts, killing four Americans in Libya in a terrorist attack on Sept. 11 and clashing with security forces elsewhere in a wave of violence against the U.S. A Pakistani government minister issued a fatwa Sunday against the U.S. producer of an anti-Islam movie blamed by some for the worldwide outburst against America, and the leader of Egypt's largest ultra-orthodox Islamist party called on Muslim leaders to demand that the U.N. criminalize contempt of religion."
