A couple of days ago I put up a post titled "George Bush: A President With Balls!" Well, I have decided to take that off because of the following comment over at IBLOGA by Michael Travis:
Avenging Apostate...I understand your position and respect your switch to
I am Israeli....and suffered greatly from GWB's actions. I watched as a neighbour girl was blown up a few meters from me. I was one of the first on the scene when the Dolphinarium disco was attacked and dozens of innocent kids were murdered..........Bush's initial response to those incidents was and angry "No, that is not terrorism"! HE spoke on camera and off the cuff. Of course after consultation he denounced the attacks...using the same words as Arafat. Very sincere.
I can also never forget the promises to the Arabs in Egypt, Morroco, and Spain made by Colin Powell...."All options are on the table" (With regard to "Military intervention" or bombing Israel to make us accept the unacceptable.)
I don't believe in being politically correct. Or changing something because somebody else might get offended. But I was unaware of these things that Michael Travis brough to my attention. I put up an Israeli flag as the image for my profile not just because Muslims hate Israel but because I support Israel with all my heart. And if Bush, or anyone for that matter, is in any way against Israel, well they can forget about my support.
So that post of mine will be taken down and I want to sincerely apologize to Michael Travis for putting up that post in the first place.
