Muslim Bush appointee blasts president
Professor Khaled Abou El Fadl, originally of Egypt, was appointed by President George W. Bush to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, an independent panel established by Congress that makes policy recommendations to the president and secretary of state.
In an interview with an Arab weekly, Professor Khaled Abou El Fadl, appointed by George W. Bush to a religious freedom panel charged the president’s policies are driven by a Christian, religious fundamentalism from the colonial era and urged that Bush not be re-elected.
Interview excerpts were published by the Washington, D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Insitute.
We invite you to read the rest of El Fadl’s comments, which reek of arrogance and superiority. Here’s hoping that this will teach Bush a lesson to not appease one’s enemies, or you’ll end up with a knife in your back.
