You may ask why does John keep picking on Sarkozy? He made me! Everything I had hoped about Sarkozy - somewhat understood Islam, viewed EU as a threat, viewed Turkey as a threat. Boy was I wrong. There he is shoving the Eurabia Treaty down the Frenchies throat - no vote for you! - and toning down his 'no Turkey in the EU' rhetoric, and then this week in Saudi Arabia,
From Brussels Journal - President Sarkozy said:
Fourteen centuries ago, from this place, went forth the great élan of piety, fervor, and faith that would carry off everything it met, that would convert so many peoples and bring about the birth of one of the greatest, most beautiful civilizations that the world has ever known. Here in Saudi Arabia are the holiest sites of Islam, towards which every Muslim in the world turns to pray. […] The West received the Greek heritage thanks to the Muslim civilization. […]
No doubt, Muslims, Jews and Christians do not believe in God in the same manner. No doubt, they do no have the same way of venerating God, of praying, of serving him; but, at bottom, who could deny that it is the same God to whom they address their prayers?
Mo is the Elan of piety birthing the greatest civization? Same God? Even though it is terrible and described as 'stupefying' by Bernard Anthony, it is good to know that Sarkozy is just as stupid as Bush. Knowledge of Islam makes you a very good citizen - you can spot a doofus when he opens his mouth and talks about Islam. So now we know. Real disappointing but the confusion whether Sarkozy knew what he was doing is over. He doesn't.
