>Would it be of a suprise that President Bush says what he says because what he and all of us had seen happen to other well known non-Muslims, most recent Pope Benedict XVI having been>subjected to. witness how "offended" Muslims would get on issues involving Islam or Muhammed>have to be careful what he says? Even just using the word, "Islamofacist" would trigger a reponse of offense. As a public person, President Bush has to be careful what he says.

Gee, maybe our president doesn;t trash Muslims, not because he needs to be so careful with what he says (he's not), but could it possibly be that he is in fact grateful to Muslims who openly support him and his efforts? Much less those who support America and the freedoms we enjoy in general? Some even campaign for him and give him a heck opf a lot of money!!! http://www.muslimsforbush.com/ http://muslimsforamerica.us/

Maybe there is more to Islam than a bunch of violenty fundies? Maybe there are in fact some of our fellow Americans who are Muslims who support us and we deserve to support them? Daniel at least seems to think so. Why can't you? A touch of sectarian prejudice?

>On the other hand, private indivuals can be a little more honest and express viewpoints like the other>posts in this blog entry without fear of causing a dispute. This is called presenting different viewpoints. All that are being presented is that are differences between the God of the Bible and the God of the Koran. There should be nothing wrong with having different viewpoints.

Sure, there's nothing wrong with that, and as i've stated before, while we are at it, we should compare the god of the old testament workshipped by orthodox Jews. YHVH, and the god of the new testament./ Are they the same? Some of my Jewish friends certainly don't think they are one and the same, despite the attempts of Christians to make it appear as much.
