U.S.: GWB's move away from the RoP old blague

The violence we are seeing in Iraq is familiar. The terrorists who take hostages or plants a roadside bomb near Baghdad is serving the same ideology of murder that kills innocent people on trains in Madrid, and murders children on buses in Jerusalem, and blows up a nightclub in Bali and cuts the throat of a young reporter for being a Jew.

We've seen the same ideology of murder in the killing of 241 Marines in Beirut, the first attack on the World Trade Center, in the destruction of two embassies in Africa, in the attack on the USS Cole, and in the merciless horror inflicted upon thousands of innocent men and women and children on September the 11th, 2001.

None of these acts is the work of a religion. All are the work of a fanatical political ideology. The servants of this ideology seek tyranny in the Middle East and beyond. They seek to oppress and persecute women. They seek the death of Jews and Christians and every Muslim who desires peace over theocratic terror.
Supposedly, GWB is discussing terrorism. Actually, he is talking about Islam; for, it is Islam that oppresses and persecutes women, and it is Islam that teaches the death of Jews and Christians is a desirable thing. This is actually the first time that GWB has eliminated the gap between his depiction of Islam and Islam's presentation of itself.
