The exact definition of “Dhimmi”, a term which we talk about all the time on this blog, is:
Dhimmi was the name applied by the Arab-Muslim conquerors to indigenous non-Muslim populations who surrendered by a treaty (dhimma) to Muslim domination.

See Miss Manners on the protocol. Americans do not bow to foreign monarchs because that act signified the monarch’s power over his subjects.

Wow, just wow. Are there no handlers to tell him this isn’t done?
Where’s Rahm? Enjoying watching his befuddled puppet from afar?
How can people continue to ignore what is obvious, this Usurper is an Islamic murderer at heart.

I’m pretty sure that by bowing to a king, he’s just committed treason.
If things keep going this way we’ll have an impeachment in no time.
Whether it is ignorance, treason, part of the great plan of a New World Order, that Obama is a puppet, or that Obama is an Islamic Follower… at heart – take your pick – but his actions are inexcusable, scary and un-America, at least if we want to keep the American and World that we know!!!
And at the very least, if you are one of those who chooses not to see… he is embarrassing!

You Americans read WAY too much into this stuff. Holding hands and bowing to a king don’t mean much, it’s just a formality to appear friendly and comfortable. It’s all PR and politics.
And FYI, bowing to anyone is forbidden in Islam because Muslims must only bow to God. So yeah, Obama really shouldn’t have done that.

Actions speak louder than words. I believe Obama was born overseas, as he’s never produced a real American birth certificate; and he considers himself a "citizen of the world" like most Marxists. I believe Obama’s loyalty is not to the United States of America – not to our Constitution – but to the emerging Marxist-Islamist New World Order led by the United Nations. Traditional America; more specifically our Declaration and Constitution, stands in the way of the UN and the New World Order.

The leader of the most powerful nation on Earth showing signals of
DEFEAT to someone whose source of power comes not from his
people,but from a dirty and black stuff that oozes out from the ground
To show respect is one thing,but to look SUBDUED in front
of thousands of reporters and TV crews is quite another.Even
George W.Bush and his father,that are business partners of the
Saudi dynasty,didn’t show such behavior.
I guess that Obama was BEGGING for the Saudis to
purchase more U.S.Treasury Bonds…In 20 or 30 years
the Saudis and the Chinese will be in charge in Washington.
