Bush gives Ali medal

Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush

Submitted by Hilda (United States), Nov 29, 2005 at 16:58

I think Bush was pandering to Islam. Was it a coicidence that this year's list did not contain any Jewish names? I also doubt there were any Budhist or Hindu recipients. Maybe Ali's twirling of his fingers was more significant than we can imagine.

I do know that all of us Israel supporters who voted for him have been let down. He will never win his war on terrorism until he recognizes that the Palestinians who bomb Israelis are one and same as the terrorists who brought down the WTC and other terrorists throughout the world and should be treated the same way and not rewarded with a state of their own and hugh monetary grants.
