Prince Charles to plead Islam's cause to Bush
By Andrew Alderson, Chief Reporter
The Prince of Wales will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam this week because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11.
The Prince, who leaves on Tuesday for an eight-day tour of the US, has voiced private concerns over America's "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths.
Hmmmm so have we passed any new laws?
Have their been waves of protests at mosques?
anything that is really ya know different then how muslims have practiced the faith here in the states.
Also... lets see who these people who have called him to act in this ridiculous manner...
Mr Mahmood and other Muslims present stressed that Prince Charles did not go so far as to criticise the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. More recently, he has been careful not to express his views on Iraq.
Yep we can't invade a country that
A) Shelters the people who attack our citizens
B) Takes money from said people.
C) uses those people to help defend their country
Thats the mindset of the people who think folks in this country will really care what Chucky has to say.
I could go into more depth on what he said but the words of a wise englishman to me stick
"He's proof of what happens when cousin's marry"
BDP on ABP does add some material
Prince Charles made a speech, acclaimed throughout the Arab world, on relations between Islam and the West. He urged the West to overcome its "unthinkable prejudices" about Islam and its customs and laws.
He spoke warmly of the West's debt to the culture of Islam and distanced moderate Muslims from misguided militants. "Extremism is no more the monopoly of Islam than it is the monopoly of other religions, including Christianity," he said.
Um, excuse me your highness, but doesn't the West allow Muslims to vote in free elections - something Muslim leaders didn't even do (before we liberated Afghanistan and Iraq). Why can an Arab have citizenship in Israel, but the same Jew not be able to be a citizen in an Arab country.
He goes into more of the stupidity of Prince Charles then I feel Mr. Diana Spencer is worth
