I Am Offended

On CNN.com, you can find some video commentary on Barack Obama's inauguration speech entitled "'Double Message' to Muslims". In it, Wolf Blitzer quotes two sections of Obama's speech:

...and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.

and

To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.

and describes them as being a double message especially to the Muslim world.

Gee. In what part of the first section did Obama address "the Muslim world"? This sort of religious, cultural and racial stereotyping is so grossly offensive. As if all Muslims were terrorists (or all terrorists Muslims). This is nothing short of hate-speech and is just plain not appropriate on any network anywhere.

I've already made my feelings known to CNN.
