And the Lying Continues
The Prince of Wales will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam this week because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11. The Prince, who leaves on Tuesday for an eight-day tour of the US, has voiced private concerns over America's "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths.Of course, President Bush has nothing but praise for Islam. Clearly Charles has been hallucinating or falling for anti-American bigotry. In actuality, this line of attack is meant to be pre-emptive. Before Mr. Bush, or more likely another leader, identifies the threat of Islam, the apologists are yelling “anti-Islam” to solidify our current blindness. This is an attempt to close people’s mind and inculcate a positive prejudice before they critically examine Islam.
Might I suggest that Price Charles take a tour of Continental Europe to confront the hate and bigotry against America?
