Bush and Islam

Bush Still Doesn’t Get It


This article describes some of the many reasons for the continued increase of suspicion of the US in the Muslim world. It also provides some specific, simple steps that the Bush administration could take to help change that perception. One of the major challenges to this possibility is simply that President Bush (still) doesn’t care enough to make understanding Islam a priority. It is much more than the religious foundation of the Middle East but also the prism through which many countries in the region and their populations view the world.

Bush should be able to relate to a theocentric perspective on the world, after all, Jesus is his favorite political philosopher.
