Why do you hate all Muslims so much?

Mr. President,
Why does America hate Muslims so much? This question is being asked around the world.. Why are they allowing innocent Lebanese men women and children to die at the hands of an overzealous Israeli military? The few deaths on the Israeli side are not getting nearly the press around the world except on Fox.

Every day the volume and intensity of the Arab voices around the world is increasing to a crescendo. The world has grown callous to the Israeli atrocities occurring throughout the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but the recent bombing and systematic destruction of Lebanese society, the wanton bombing of sewage plants, electrical and water systems are clear violations of the Geneva Convention. Israel's sophisticated weapons, which America provides allowed them to hit Lebanese untilities such as water sewage and electrical systeems have been purposely hit. Today I heard an Israeli general describe the up-coming occupation of Lebanon as a more of a "blitzkrieg" attack. Was this a freudian slip?

The Times just reported, "The decision to quickly ship the
weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the Bush administration, the officials said. Its disclosure threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign which is comparable to Iran’s arming and resupplying of Hezbollah."

You allowed Gonzalez and Rumsfield to set a wonderful example of how the so-called gold-standard of democracies in the world treat their prisoners. Abu Gharib Guantanimo Haditha and our extraordinary rendition policy are just a few examples of today's American-style democracy. The world has also seen less obvious aspects as well such as the jailing of reporters, the suspension of habeas corpus, the captivity of American citizens for years without access to legal representation, the racist culture, the corruption of our lawmakers, the lack of concern for the poor as shown with the Katrina disaster and unavailability of health insurance to cover even the basic health care needs.


Anti-American/anti-Israeli
demonstrations were held in Arab-speaking nations like Iran, Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Jordan Yemen and even Iraq. Scores of demonstrations around the world also happened in non-Arab nations such as Germany and France.


  • The diplomatic faux pas are adding up and they are cumulative.
22arabs600.1
  • You refused to ask for a cease fire.
  • Your refused to condemn Israel and did the opposite, you are even using the same talking points as Israel.
  • America was the only UN member to block resolution to halt military offensive in the Gaza Strip
  • The U.S. did not send anyone into the area to attempt to stop the violence. You are purposely dragging your feet by kidding yourself that Israel will kill off Hezbollah.
  • You actually said that Israel's bombing is necessary for peace! Sounds like you don't care if Israel bombs the whole country back to the 14th century.
  • The U.S professes to support the fledgling democracy in Lebanon on one hand but not enough to tell Israel to call off or pause the bombing.

Israel invaded two countries with democratically-elected governments and yet we do nothing to intervene. Hamas and Hezbollah's kidnapping of Israeli soldiers, both provoked some type of reaction from Israel, but they went way overboard, and it will haunt both America and Israel for many years to come.

All in all today's fire storm in the Mideast gives your line about democracies not attacking each other, just more bullshit.

What did you tell Putin recently at the G8
conference?
"I talked about my desire to promote institutional change in parts of the world, like Iraq where there's a free press and free religion, and I told him that many people in our country would hope that Russia would do the same," Bush said.
To which Putin responded: "We certainly would not want to have the same kind of democracy that they have in Iraq, quite honestly."

Your administration has given democracy such a bad name. It is the aids-black death, and anthrax of governments all rolled up into one package.

Instead of promoting democracy you have done just the opposite. And you have put those few Arab countries that still talk to us, in peril.


This is going to end badly for America and Israel. Americans can't keep ignoring the level of anger, your neo cons and the insane support for Israel have caused.

Sending Condi to the area is a useless gesture since she is only taking to one side. What is this high school? " We can't talk to Iran, Lebanon and Syria because they hate you." This is called statesmanship it is hard and it means dealing with all kinds of people not just the ones who agree with us. If we had this group around when Russia was sending missiles to Cuba, we would all have been radioactive dust.

On behalf of President Bush, thank you for your correspondence.
We appreciate hearing your views and welcome your suggestions.
Due to the large volume of e-mail received, the White House is
unable to respond to every message, and therefore this response
is an autoreply.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

You can divert attention but you can't stop the bad news.

Mr. President,
While you keep your conservative base entertained with images of New York Times editors aiming Al Quida RPG's at the backs of unsuspecting American soldiers, the real world goes on, and your failures are getting harder to hide.

North Korea had their own firework display this weekend, despite your warnings and angry ultimatums they said "screw you!" Your fiery rhetoric from last week became terribly timid this week.

But, you and North Korea are not the only sources of recent outrage, take the Catholic church for instance.

A spokesman for the Vatican, Cardinal Alfonso López Trujillo, said in an interview with the Catholic weekly Famiglia Cristiana published Thursday that stem cell researchers should be
punished in the same way as women who have abortions and doctors who perform them; excommunicate them from the church.

No wonder people have doubts about religion with bozos like this guy in the Vatican. Doctors and scientists have claimed that embryonic stem cell research holds a significant promise to cure many terrible diseases, but the church chooses to opposes the practice because human embryos are used to harvest cells for the work.

Some of the left-over embryos after in vitro fertilization procedures are most often destroyed; but I guess that is better than using them to help combat some serious diseases. They sound a lot as though you do, but without the funny mispronunciations of 4th grade words.

Even the famous physicist Steven Hawkins was strongly discouraged and other scientists from trying to understand how the universe began. Pope Paul John Paul said, "It's OK to study the universe and where it began. But, we should not inquire into the beginning itself because that was the moment of creation and the work of God."

God must have a hell-of-a sense of humor when he supposedly tells both sides of a war like Iraq that he/she supports them equally.

Rummy has taken a page from your play book and has refused to respond to an information request back on March 7, on a soldier who says he suffered retaliation for reporting
abuses at Abu Ghraib prison, so a subpoena had to be issued.

Specialist Joseph Darby, the whistleblower, received a special John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award, an award that recognizes acts of political courage on May 18, 2005. His family is in protective custody due to your friends like Limbaugh and Fox TV. His wife says that despite the multiple
death threats he has received "she believed her husband made the right choice exposing the torture and abuse. "Joe is the type of person to take what is going on around him and be like, 'How would I feel if that was my wife?'... He just could not live with himself knowing that that was happening and he did not do anything about it," she said.

It takes real men to bully a soldier's family. No offense junior but what your "base" lacks in courage it makes up in stupidity and stupidity is no stranger in your cabinet.

Dummy Rummy's Pentagon recently refused to turn over documents on the abuse probe at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison; so a subpoena was issued by the House Government Reform Committee. They also requested all their information on cases where family members of detainees were used in interrogations. Allegedly, children of some detainees were tortured in front of the detainees to "break " the prisoners. Sounds like Rummy will have to keep a personal lawyer strapped to his side for a while.

Back in Iraq, the body's keep rolling in. Bagdad's central morgue in Baghdad said it received 1,595 bodies in June, 16 percent more than in May. Instead of slowing down, the pace of killing increased since the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Iraq's most wanted insurgent leader. I guess your recent claims of winning the battle in Iraq is just another load of crap or more delusions from your drug-addled brain.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's very first attempt to quell the violence in Basra,
fell flat on its face according to the residents of the city. The 30-day state of emergency he proclaimed did nothing to bring down the number of Iraqis killed by sectarian violence.

The list of kidnapped Iraqi ministers gets longer as well. Gunmen seized the deputy minister, Raad al-Harith, and his bodyguards Tuesday in a Shiite neighborhood in northern Baghdad. Sunni legislator Taiseer Najah al-Mashhadani and seven of her bodyguards were kidnapped near Sadr City. Tuesday, gunmen pulled the deputy electricity minister from his car in a busy Baghdad street, kidnapping him and 19 bodyguards. The minister managed to escape later on when his kidnappers untied him.

You will have to work Rove over-time to create a sufficient number of diversionary stories, because American's discontent with you and your poorly-run war of occupation is not going away anytime soon.

Can you say Plausible Deniability?

Mr President,
Tell your friend dummy Rummy to postpone any European trips to either old Europe or old Europe because the recent Supreme Court ruling not only stated that military tribunals were illegal, they also said the Geneva convention applies to the treatment of all prisoners no matter where you stuff them.

One would ask what does that mean for officers and others who approved the torture of prisoners? " On Sunday, Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the second-ranking GOP leader in the Senate, said the ruling means that American soldiers could potentially be accused of war crimes." McConnell may be fear-mongering; I don't know. So I looked up Article 3 of the Geneva Convention.

Article 3 of the Geneva Convention says:

1. Persons taking no active part in the hostilities, including members of armed forces who have laid down their arms and those placed hors de combat by sickness, wounds, detention, or any other cause, shall in all circumstances be treated humanely, without any adverse distinction founded on race, colour, religion or faith, sex, birth, or wealth, or any other similar criteria.
To this end, the following acts are and shall remain prohibited at any time and in any place whatsoever with respect to the above-mentioned persons:
(a) Violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture;
(b) Taking of hostages;
(c) Outrages upon personal dignity, in particular, humiliating and degrading treatment;
(d) The passing of sentences and the carrying out of executions without previous judgment pronounced by a regularly constituted court affording all the judicial guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by civilized peoples.
2. The wounded and sick shall be collected and cared for.
An impartial humanitarian body, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross, may offer its services to the Parties to the conflict.

Rummy had to cancel a planned visit to Germany after was afraid of going to Europe before because a US human rights organization asked German authorities to prosecute him for war crimes back in January 2005.
rumsfeld
The Centre for Constitutional Rights said four Iraqis were allegedly tortured in US custody. A complaint was filed with German authorities against Rumsfeld; former CIA director George Tenet and eight other senior military and civilian officials over abuses at Abu Ghraib.

I am not sure if the German courts did not prosecute the case because it did not have merit or because Rumsfeld said he would not attend the Munich conference unless Germany quashed the legal action.

Either way, it’s a new ball game now that our own court system has claimed in essence that we have been violating the Geneva Convention.

Are you sure you didn't know anything about the torture and the other Geneva violations our country has violated? Did Cheney and Rummy provide you with sufficient "plausible deniability?"
