Your God Started It

I love this one! President Bush said in Green Bay on Thursday that the foiling of the latest terror attacks planned by Muslim terrorists was part of our "war with Islamic fascists."

Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR, wasn't as enthusiastic about the President's remarks and said, "We believe this is an ill-advised term and we believe that it is counter-productive to associate Islam or Muslims with fascism." He went on to say that, "We ought to take advantage of these incidents to make sure that we do not start a religious war against Islam and Muslims."

I have a little history lesson for Mr. Awad. Back in March of 2004, Dr. Abdel Aziz Rantisi addressed thousands of supporters in Gaza and said, "We knew that Bush is the enemy of God, the enemy of Islam and Muslims. America declared war against God. Sharon declared war against God and God declared war against America, Bush and Sharon. The war of God continues against them and I can see the victory coming up from the land of Palestine by the hand of Hamas."

In case anyone doesn't know who Rantisi was, he was the leader of Hamas for the very brief period of 23 March 2004 through 17 April 2004. His reign ended when he had automotive troubles caused by his car striking a missile.

But, more importantly, let's not forget that Rantisi's rantings are reflective of the words that have been coming from the Muslim world for years. We are not starting a religious war against Islam and Muslims, Mr. Awad; apparently Allah has already declared war on us.
