CAIRO – After the release of a White House video that President Barack Obama was looking for a job after the end of his presidency next January, a Dubai lawyer has offered the American President a job at his law firm to familiarize him with the tolerance of Islam.
“To get closely acquainted with the meaning of tolerance of Islam,” tweeted Emirati lawyer Eisa Bin Haidar on Sunday as he offered to hire Obama in his firm and to live in Dubai once his presidential tenure expires soon, Gulf News reported on Monday, May 16.
As of Monday, Obama has 248 days left in office. A newly-elected US president starts official duties on January 20, 2017.
In another tweet addressing Obama, advocate Haidar tweeted “President Obama, I offer you a job in my office, salary, housing, tickets and travel to Arab countries”.
According to Bin Haidar, he aimed at offering Obama a better understanding of Islam, by dealing with Muslims directly.
“A faction of the American and western media has constantly profiled Islam as a religion of terror and categorised Muslims as terrorists. Well that is absolutely not true. Islam is a religion of tolerance, understanding, forgiveness and acceptance … it is not a religion of terror and Muslims are not terrorist,” he told Gulf News.
“The only way for westerners to accept and understand Islam and Muslims is to come and live with us and amongst us. Once he [Obama] leaves his office at the White House, I offer President Obama to work in my law firm and then he would come and live amongst Arabs and Muslims and learn the exact meaning of tolerance.”
“I know my offer is a little bit weird, but you [Obama] have to live with Muslims to know them closely and away from political theatrics which are being spearheaded by the US,” he added in another tweet in Arabic.
