I had a long think about perhaps what he was meaning. Sure he has probably lied often enough for us to be respectably calling him a liar; but I really believe that George Bush is not that much of an imbecile to be annoucing publically that he is with God in his own mind, as a Man whom has sat in the same room as a representatives of other nations whom are factually Moslem, without having some crediblity in what he is stating. So we really need consider what is his credibility in such rather than look to the obvious ease of flawing him. Perhaps he is tempting you to mistake his true meaning?
Now, I am neither one to want to call the man a lunatic; but I happen to believe that George Bush is one of those persons whom occasionally is wandering about and maybe he just got a look at the neighbouring persons computer screen in a moment in which he was afraid of the fact of being President of the United States, and in that moment he Prayed "God help me to get out of this", and God helped him by reminding him that there is no way out, by giving him one of those experiences of the whole adult life of another man experienced in a moment. Maybe in Allah when he wishes to not have to endure the full account of his presidency, his mind is whisked off to the Middle East to exist for a time as a soldier, just so as that he knows there is truly no way out. Perhaps he is only tempting us to believe that his experiences of such are insanity when he knows full well that some Muslims have such experiences as well; in fact any person whom has ever Dreamed is experiencing such a phenomenon.
So let us not Judge him, but only regard that his professed belief in One God and Jesus is that ground within which all Muslims will hold him amply to account. After all, we need to allocate some crediblity to that large population whom voted for him in preference to a person who was party to supporting known incidents of adultery.
I was walking down the street just the other day, and I suddenly noticed (probably right at prayer time, but I was not looking at a clock) that there was a feeling as though a large part of George Bush's awareness had suddenly centred upon my self. But what can any person equitably regard of such an incident as learning that perhaps George Bush was having a Dream of their own life. Perhaps he Dreams with Muslims precisely because Muslims are failing to digest the fact that he sure has a lot of Americans holding him accountable for having professed certainty in Jesus. After all, Jesus taught us that we must following him in death to follow him in life. I will take Mr Bush as a Christian if nobody else will; but most likely Satan has him.
Surely then no need for our accusations since he will only suppose that we relieve him a bit of his burdens.
Sadly it is that most folk who get the idea that God told them to do something, are actually mistaking a person whom has commited black magic for being God: better that they find they are confused by shaytan than confused in Allah, since that way that are at least accountible.
To answer George Bush; I would say "of course" at every turn; and expect that his Peace in the Middle East will come when there are no Muslims accusing him, and we can all trust in Allah that he also is accounted. wasalam
I should add to that here in an edit: I am in deed a Christian as well as being a Moslem, but hold no regard for the doctrine of any person whom follows a Rosicrucian influenced dogma, or imagery. wasalam
