Shoeless George Bush--Washington's continuing confusion with Islam
FrontPageMagazine.com ^ | July 4, 2007 | Daniel Pipes

Posted on 07/04/2007 9:09:03 AM PDT by SJackson

When Dwight D. Eisenhower dedicated the Islamic Center in Washington, D.C., in June 1957, his 500-word talk effused good will ("Civilization owes to the Islamic world some of its most important tools and achievements") even as the American president embarrassingly bumbled (Muslims in the United States, he declared, have the right to their "own church"). Conspicuously, he included nary a word about policy.

Exactly 50 years later, standing shoeless, George W. Bush rededicated the center last week. His 1,600-word speech also praised medieval Islamic culture ("We come to express our appreciation for a faith that has enriched civilization for centuries"), but he knew a mosque from a church – and he had more on the agenda than flattery.

Most arresting, surely, was his statement that "I have invested the heart of my presidency in helping Muslims fight terrorism, and claim their liberty, and find their own unique paths to prosperity and peace." This cri du coeur signaled how Mr. Bush understands to what extent actions by Muslims will define his legacy.

Should they heed his dream "and find their own unique paths to prosperity and peace," then his presidency, however ravaged it may look at the moment, will be vindicated. As with Harry S Truman, historians will acknowledge that he saw further than his contemporaries. Should Muslims, however, be "left behind in the global movement toward prosperity and freedom," historians will likely judge his two terms as harshly as his fellow Americans do today.

Of course, how Muslims fare depends in large part on the future course of radical Islam, which in turn depends in some part on its understanding by the American president. Over the years, Mr. Bush has generally shown an increased understanding of this topic. He started with platitudinous, apologetic references to Islam as the "religion of peace," using this phrase as late as 2006. He early on even lectured Muslims on the true nature of their religion, a presumptuous ambition that prompted me in 2001 to dub him "Imam Bush."

As his understanding grew, Mr. Bush spoke of the caliphate, "Islamic extremism" and "Islamofacism." What euphemistically he called the "war on terror" in 2001, by 2006 he referred to with the hard-hitting "war with Islamic fascists." Things were looking up. Perhaps official Washington did understand the threat, after all.

But such analyses roused Muslim opposition and, as he approaches his political twilight, Mr. Bush has retreated to safer ground, reverting last week to decayed tropes that tiptoe around any mention of Islam. Instead, he spoke inelegantly of "the great struggle against extremism that is now playing out across the broader Middle East" and vaguely of "a group of extremists who seek to use religion as a path to power and a means of domination."

Worse, the speech drum-rolled the appointment of a U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, directing this envoy to "listen to and learn from" his Muslim counterparts. But the OIC is a Saudi-sponsored organization promoting the Wahhabi agenda under the trappings of a Muslim-only United Nations. As counterterrorism specialist Steven Emerson has noted, Bush's dismal initiative stands in "complete ignorance of the rampant radicalism, pro-terrorist, and anti-American sentiments routinely found in statements by the OIC and its leaders."

Adding to the event's accommodationist tone, some of the president's top female aides, including Frances Townsend and Karen Hughes, wore makeshift hijabs as they listened to him in the audience.

Sitting in the front row at the Islamic Center on June 27, 2007, senior Bush administration staffers Frances Townsend (left) and Karen Hughes wore makeshift hijabs.

In brief, it feels like "déjà vu all over again." As columnist Diana West puts it, "Nearly six years after September 11 — nearly six years after first visiting the Islamic Center and proclaiming ‘Islam is peace' — Mr. Bush has learned nothing." But we now harbor fewer hopes than in 2001 that he still can learn, absorb, and reflect an understanding of the enemy's Islamist nature.

Concluding that he basically has failed to engage this central issue, we instead must look to Mr. Bush's potential successors and look for them to return to his occasional robustness, again taking up those difficult concepts of Islamic extremism, Shari'a, and the caliphate. Several Republicans – Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, and (above all) Fred Thompson – are doing just that. Democratic candidates, unfortunately, prefer to remain almost completely silent on this topic.

Almost 30 years after Islamists first attacked Americans, and on the eve of three major attempted terrorist attacks in Great Britain, the president's speech reveals how confused Washington remains.

I noticed that, they "caught up" quite well in the last election.

While I doubt that's his strategy, I suggest GWB would have been better off aggressivly promoting his agenda rather than allowing the left to "catch up".

Not to mention several areas, spending, no child left behind, immigration, catching up, protecting the border, wasn't necessary.

By the way, I think highly of Frances Townsend. Here's someone with a resume that would actually qualify her for high political office, unlike one prominent personage. When I've seen her on CNN, she makes excellent points and stands up to journalistic idiocy. I don't think I've ever seen her on Fox, however -- seems strange.

Its obvious from the woman in the rear, that retard veils were not mandatory. And you’re right they don’t look like they want to be there, they certainly didn’t even make the effort to get a real scarf or learn how to tie it properly. So why did they even bother? Bush’s message seems to be “we’ll just do whatever you imams want.”

I guess that GWB should have taken the stick to the Muslims in his speech, right! That would have been really helpfull in a world full of America bashers and liberals. If fact, the Donks would have gone ballistic over the new club for beating him that he had handed them. The lesson here is that public figures don’t throw rocks in greenhouses; that is if they want to remain a viable public official.

You like George Bush. Isn't that sweet. What a ringing endorsement.

Maybe instead of worrying about others catching up to the obvious, you might try casting the beam out of thine own eye. Because what is obvious is that you have not a clue. You probably think Colonel Mustard did Miss Scarlet in the den.

Maybe he does know what he is doing. That is the scariest conjecture of all. If he was just stupid, you could say, "Poor George, he's doing his best to destroy America because he's clueless." But it is truly frightening to consider that he just may know what he is doing.

There was a story in the news recently about a small boy who had his face half torn off by a pit bull. I believe the owner was quoted as saying she liked that dog. As if that was relevant.

And, yes, that is too little for me. By the time the liberals, and you, catch up, most Americans will be speaking Spanish, praying to the east nine times a day and pledging allegiance to the United Nations every morning.

No Muslim in good standing has any intention of abiding by the First Amendment once Islamists are in power. To allow them to enjoy its protection is therefore an act of sedition. They should be expelled.

What a twisted analysis!!

If your fighting a World War against Islam fanatics; you just DON’T GO to one of their events. The symbolism of this is downright scumballistic. You send brave men and women who are all volunteers to fight and die and you go sucking up to the very demonic institution that is the root cause of their deaths and maiming? Would Truman have whored himself to be speak at a shinto shrine during the War in the Pacific? Hell FREEKin NO! On the 4th of July to even hear this treachery makes me sick to my stomach!!

Yes, he probably knows what he is doing, BUT that does not make what he is doing right for America or American interests; nor for Conservative interests.

NEVER forget that “Clinton knew what [who] he was doing”, too.

Knowing what you are doing, and doing the right things are not necessarily mutually exclusive, but neither are they necessarily the same.

I don’t see Reagan, or his friend John Wayne for that matter, holding hands with the enemy. This photo does not show any strength for a world leader. Wait a minute, maybe GWB does not want to be seen as a leader. He does bow to the throne of the global GDP, while throwing the US and it’s rich heritage and giving citizens to the lions.

Now it makes sense.

If he was throwing babies into the street and running over them with a truck, then maybe he would be making Muslims look good by comparison.

Well, actually, no. Muslims have done worse than that many times over but it would be a closer comparison.

"You shall know them by their fruits" is one of the wisest things ever said. If we looked at the fruits of men, instead of their rhetoric and appearance, we would see more clearly and would not be deceived so easily.

These Muslims look good to you? Did you look at the photos of the doctors in London recently, the ones who were planning to burn, maim and kill as many people, mostly women, as they could? The nice doctors doing good for people. Did they look good to you?

Yes, we should be nicer and more polite else we will be thought of poorly when compared to Muslims.

First, they stole zero from the Hindus; they didn't invent it. It would, like a better mouse trap, have eventually made its way West.

Second, I refuse to believe that, just because they didn't have a separate symbol for it, that Greeks and Romans never got around to asking, "If I have 5 olives and give Alexander 3, and give Titus two, how many do I have left?"

What is significant is decimal notation, and different fish entirely.

Bush simply has decided to act like his father, James Baker, and all the country club Republicans who think diplomacy, soothing feelings and making PC statements will actually defeat murderers. He could have urged the so called moderates to stand up and stand with the West against Islamofascism. He could have urged the moderates to help in educational efforts and foreswear the maddrasses even here in the USA via Detroit, NYC, Balt.,Philly, Denver. But, he did not. Hopefully, Rudy, Mitt or Fred will. No Dem will since they don’t think Islamofascism is an evil. Of course, they don’t think anything is evil except Pubs, Christians, conservs or Global Warming.
