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):
