What's most intriguing about this is Bush's claim that we are at war...
with "Islamic fascists." Before he's used "terrorists" etc. But now he's specifying Islam. Given his ardent support of Israel, has Bush's true intentions for all of his foreign policy actions now fully coming to light?

1. "Islamofacism" has been the WH buzzword for months.

4. What does that even mean?
Islam and fascism is not a viable mix.

Granted, true Christianity (not this fundie nonsense that seems to have taken it over) and fascism isn't a good mix either but that hasn't stopped the Freepers.

5. "Ardent support of Israel"?????
He abandoned Israel immediately on taking office. He allowed the situation to fester into irretrievable war. Lotta support there. War is always so good for a nation.

This is the grandson of one of Hitler's bankers. This is the product of a family that believes in eugenics. Bush has never supported Israel a day in his life.

6. I think the recent unrest in the Middle East shows this...
He supports Israel's invasion of Lebanon whole-heartedly.

11. By doing nothing. Israelis are being killed. Doesn't matter to George.
Doesn't matter to him that Lebanese are dying either. Support?

With friends like that, who needs enemies.

10. They've started using the term "fascists" ...
... in order to diminish its effect when used in regards to them.
