Measuring the Drapes: “If we leave they will follow us here . . .”

Many Americans are still undecided on the upcoming Congressional race. With that in mind, you might want to visit U. S. News and World Report’s Michael Barone Blog. Barone has an audio link to an hour-long conversation in the Oval Office between President Bush and several prominent conservative journalists. Well, maybe its more like a soliloquy. Nevertheless, technology has given us a tremendous chance to listen to this in-depth discussion of what the President is thinking about Iraq in light of the upcoming Congressional election. One of the notable quotes: “I don’t think religious people murder; I think people are misusing their religion to justify their murder.”

The record is clear: President Bush has consistently opposed terrorism and has never opposed Islam. With that in mind, it’s good to find out that some Muslims outside the United States have an interest in Muslim/Christian dialogue. For a very interesting recent post from Pakistan, just click here.

And speaking of Muslims, this week has seen the celebration of the Eid holiday (the date seems to vary based on the country), which marks the end of Ramadan. For a bit of diversity, you might enjoy reading some of the blogs on this list, (scroll down to see the list) which features blogs from Pakistan with holiday greetings to its readers.
