Never Mind Previous Article

Well, apparently my newest intern fed me some incorrect information. It turns out that Bush did not deny American slavery (in public, at least), but in fact it was just an old news item about some Holocaust denial in a Saudi Government newspaper.

I say: Impossible! If the Saudi government would say such a thing, then I am sure that President Gore would not have been in Saudi Arabia this week speaking about “the channels of friendship and mutual understanding between Saudi Arabia and the United States.”

Similarly, there is no way that President Gore, as someone with a well-earned reputation for caring and compassion, would speak of friendship with a country that would permit a sheik to say, at their most holy mosque in Mecca:

"Read history and you will understand that the Jews of yesterday are the evil fathers of the Jews of today, who are evil offspring, infidels, distorters of [God's] words, calf-worshippers, prophet-murderers, prophecy-deniers... the scum of the human race whom Allah cursed and turned into apes and pigs… These are the Jews, an ongoing continuum of deceit, obstinacy, licentiousness, evil, and corruption..."

That is like saying Hillary Clinton would sit through a blood-libel speech given by the wife of a terrorist, and then hug her afterwards. They are just good friends with progressive causes.
