“God Instructed Me”

June 30th, 2003

There was an article in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz about the peace talks in the Middle East. Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas met with President Bush, and told Ha’aretz that, after speaking with Bush about Sharon, Bush told Abbas:

“God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East.”
Is that scary, or what? And so far, the U.S. press has not seemed to pick up on the story yet. Can you imagine any other president before saying that God instructed him to invade a foreign country and the press not having a field day about it?

One can only hope that the press is at least asking about the quote. Naturally, Bush’s people will claim it was a misquote, especially if it wasn’t, but if the press doesn’t at least partially cover it, this should be yet another proof that the press is covering and shilling for the Bush administration.

Thanks to Sako for the tip on the story.

    What if God did instruct President Bush to “strike at al Qaida and Saddam,?” What if he disobeyed God and did nothing? What if he didn’t hear God when God spoke to him?
    What if president Bush was walking in the forest talking to himself and no one but God heard him, does that mean he is still wrong? What if President Bush made up the whole God thing? Will God punish him, or will you pass judgement for GOD?
