The Obamas And Diplomatic Etiquette
Tifatul Sembiring shook Michelle Obama's hand. A "pious" Moslem shook the hand of a woman not his wife. Huge no-no!
She forced herself on him! Yeah, right.
The Obamas are hardly strangers to breaches of diplomatic etiquette:
Don't the Obamas listen to their coaches in diplomatic etiquette?
I'm no defender of Islam and its weirdo traditions and legalisms. That said, I see a bigger problem with the Obamas and their flaunting of protocol.
Furthermore, if a Republican First Family were making these mistakes, the mainstream media would excoriate the entire GOP.
Note: Michelle Obama did manage to conform to the dress code so as to visit Istiqlal Mosque (Click directly on the image to enlarge it):
