Muslim-Americans asked Bush to defend Islam
WASHINGTON, 20 November 2002 — President Bush’s recent show of support of Islam and Muslims has been praised for his rebuff of right-wing evangelical leaders who made a series of offensive, ignorant and racist statements against Islam and Prophet Mohamed.

It now appears the president’s statement came after a series of serious nudgings by the Muslim-American community, who felt Islam was being deliberately slandered.

“Basically we have been seeing this rising tide of anti-Muslim rhetoric in the US — from right-wing commentators and evangelical Christian leaders – and there has been a barrage of anti-Muslim hate speech.

“There was a resounding silence from the president and other elected officials — and we felt that their silence equaled acceptance. On several occasions, we asked the president to speak out on this issue, and he, and Secretary of State Colin Powell, finally did,” said Ibrahim ...

Some people think that if you've read the Bible and live in a Christian country then you can say you're a Christian.
James says "For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was." (1: 23-24)
Maybe he can't remember. It's a political disease caused by too many election promises.

“There was a resounding silence from the president and other elected officials — and we felt that their silence equaled acceptance.
Just two questions: Who will stand up for Christians being killed in muslim countries ? Would Mr Ibrahim Hooper care to comment or speak out against this "discrimination" ?

First of all, kudos to Renee & Adam for their posts.

Second of all, what slanders are going towards Islam? If one reads their Koran, one will quickly find that it commands Muslims to make war on infidels, and it was founded by a guy who had child wives and treated treaties like toilet paper.

I remember one of Bush's speeches just after 9/11, in which he talked about the diversity and unity of Americans. I don't remember his exact words, but it was something to the effect of: "We are Christians, Buddhists, Muslims, Jews, and other religions; but ABOVE ALL, we are Americans" (emphasis mine).

I agree with Adam--President Bush has to decide where his ultimate allegiance lies. He can't have it both ways.

President Bush has to decide if he is a politician or a Christian. If he truly is a Christian then he has a theological problem. Muslims deny the divinity of Jesus Christ and that he died and was resurrected. Bush, the politician, does a lot of talking. Maybe Bush, the Christian, will speak out one day. But don't count on it.
