Does Herman Cain Have Middle Eastern Ties?
Godfather's Pizza Former CEO: Herman Cain
So it is October 9, 2011 and I watched the morning news shows and there was not much to report with the exception of Herman Cain being all over them. Most notably was is 999 tax reform plan which is a flat regressive tax on the poor and elderly. Then of interesting note was the fact that Herman Cain didn't want radical Islam serving in the White House? Is there any evidence radical Islam is serving in the White House or the executive branch now? Then Herman Cain took it a step further and said he was okay with Muslims just not radical ones. How can you tell the difference? Do radical Muslims pray five times a day while none radical Muslims only pray three times a day? I thought the whole point of radical Islam is they are very good at hiding the fact they are radical? If they are so easy to spot then let's unfund intelligence all together. I highly doubt radical Islam is easily detected so I found this statement a little incredulous. I guess Cain was insinuating President Obama is a radical Islamist but I just don't buy that either.
And then I wondered how does Herman Cain former CEO of Godfather's Pizza knows anything about Islam? And is the mention of Islam another crooked straight talk moment to get support from Middle Eastern Oil interests. Now to be clear I think Herman Cain is trying to run for president while he is selling books and he may not be in the race for the long haul. But I would not impugn his integrity as a candidate. I am just curious since I haven't know a lot of Islam to live in Georgia let alone radical Islam. I have never even seena Mosque in Georgia. But I am a Peach Tree kind of gal.
And then I wondered if Herman Cain had former business interests in the Middle East wouldn't that be a conflict of interest for him to be president as he would have difficulty ending a war in the Middle East? So I did a little research and I looked into the activities of Godfather's Pizza. And while it doesn't qulaify Herman Cain on Foreign Policy it would seem Godfather's has been doing business with just about the entire Middle East.
But the following are Midle Eastern Countries in which Godfather's operates:
United Arabic Emeritis
Good to know if you ever need a pizza you can get one in the Middle East, especialy during the Arab Spring.

Herman Cain Anti Israel?
Now it is quite clear to me that Herman Cain has more experience with Islam then he is willing to let on with all those Godfather's restaurants in the Middle East. What is amazing to me is that there is not one Godfather's Restaurant in Israel. And as a matter of fact I don't believe I have heard Herman Cain mention Israel. Which again makes in rather incredulous he won Florida give the vast numbers of Jewish people living in Florida.
So are we prepared as a nation to elect a president that is anti-Israel? It is not as if those relations aren't tense enough now. But to Cain's credit there are nor Godfather's in Iran, Iraq or Syria, Afghanistan or Pakistan. So he is close enough to the Middle East through business dealings to be influenced buy Middle Eastern countries with the exception of Israel.
Why did Herman Cain leave this part off his resume'?
