God speaks to the Burning Bush!

George Bush does have something about him, but has he been singled out by God for special missions? According to Palestinian peace negotiator Nabil Shaath, Bush said something along these lines.

"I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan. And I did, and then God would tell me, George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq... And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East. And by God I'm gonna do it."

All this would sound good to an Arab! My hunch is that Bush burbled about how he felt about peace and then Nabil Shaath translated it into Arabic. In Arabic everyone sounds magnificent, bountiful, strong, bright and beautiful! And then someone translated it back into English.

Wow! Suddenly the President is more in touch than the Pope! This all goes to show that the White House may not always understand the company of Arabs!



Sounds like an insanity plea to me.
