So I'm watching the news and They show the leaders gathering outside for a photo op prior to the G20...then the POTUS greets the lady in pink to his right by shaking her hand and kissing not one cheek but both..right side then left...is it me or do only muslims do this cause I don't remember Christians geeting each other this way... Ive looked around for the vid but each time that part gets cut out....

probably nothin...

Same thing in Brazil. Not exclusive of the Muslim world.

You need to get out of Texas some time.

Open your eyes so to speak.

As far as I know, touching women you are not married or otherwise related to is frowned upon in Islam. I recall watching a British documentary about life in Iran, and the male journalist was unable to even shake hands with a woman he was interviewing, because apparently that's illegal in Iran.

Have you ever noticed the way Muslim men tend to greet each other?

And Ahmadinejad said there are no gays in Iran.

But I don't recall many Christian men greeting each other like this.

Muslim moments for Bush?

One of my PhD students is from Pakistan (married girl). She has been in my lab for ~3 months. I met her at the airport when she first joined my group and shaked hands with her without knowing her. I just came back from a meeting in Oaxaca, Mexico last week, and I got a big hug from her when we saw each other in the lab.
My other Pakistani student has been working with her in Pakistan for 5 years, and they do not touch each other despite the fact they are really good friends.
These two guys adapted pretty well actually. Well, all my students from the Muslim world have been great (Turkey, India, Tunisia, etc.).
Disclosure. I am Chistian (and not particularly fan of Obama)

Didn't the Saudi's contribute over 1 billion to the Bush family fortune ?

You would kiss the man too.
