Obama Calls Leaders of Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines

By Scott Wilson
President Obama phoned the leaders of Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, and Indonesia Friday for conversations the White House said touched on climate change, regional security and diplomacy, and strengthening of the global economy.

In his call to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, the most populous Muslim nation, the leaders "discussed regional and international issues, including the President's commitment to a new and different kind of relationship with Islamic communities around the world," the White House said in a statement. Obama spent part of his early childhood in Indonesia.

His call to President Gloria Arroyo of the Philippines focused on "countering terrorism and modernizing the armed forces," the White House said. It also involved the "visiting forces agreement" that governs how U.S. forces based in the Philippines are allowed to operate.

Obama's call to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia concerned the "the need to coordinate international efforts to restore economic growth" in advance of the G20 summit in London next month, the White House said.

Dear Barrack Obama,
-
W / 13 vs.
1 Have you noticed in the national internet news today the fourteenth of March 2009AD, that it was reported that Hizbullah head Hassan Nasrallah mocked the united states, in that the Hizbullah people will never recognize Israel being a nation at all and forever?
-
2 That news, it is not surprising to me at all, why? Because wisdom tells me that just as some christians are devoted fully to god in all that is god forever, so are some people devoted for life in desiring and performing what is wrong and evil unto god and unto mankind-- forever.
-
3 In the middle east, peace shall never be obtained forever, until Israel is rightfully found forever in all her old ancient national borders as Israel.
-
4 And if you desire to see peace in the middle east, then you must read and understand old and new testament promises of god that are made of god unto Israel.
-
5 And if you want this nation back on track, and the economy in good shape, you must recognize Israel’s right to be found forever in all her old borders as god said that is to be forever.
-
6 Therefore, we can never change that fact that is given of god forever. And we must recognize god’s right to do these things in this earth-- forever. And he is the creator and he loves all the earth-- eternally forever.
-
7 And you do appear to want our country to be fixed concerning our national money problems and so forth, and if you will do things god’s way, he will show you how to do those things that you desire for our country.
-
8 I do hope, that you will see all of those things and consider them, but one more thing! Our god is watching this nation and he will in the great judgments of judgments,
-
9 “He will ask you what you did about all of these things” and he will even ask you about the issue of the unborn child in that great eternal just judgment, as to what you did to or for them”,
-
10 And no doubt, those unborn children, they will each one witness against all men, as to testify against whomsoever took part in taking their life from the earth. Therefore, as a christian brother to you,
-
11 I must say, to be careful in what you do in that regard of the unborn child in this world.

I surely hope that president Obama had the respective governments of the Philipines, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia call him collect during these successive phone conferences.
The world community should be sharing the cause for peace,and the cost of it!!
