What can you say? What am I to make of this image? Do you really need to comment on this picture? This is not a simple issue. It speaks louder than expensive US propaganda efforts in the Middle East. Here is the man (Bush) who does not stop talking about spreading "freedom" in the Middle East, holding the hand of the symbol of Arab oppression, the head of an archaic religious dictatorship which still stones people to death, still beheads poor people with a sword, still sentences people to lashes, still arrests people for worshiping "the wrong" religion. And you wonder why nobody in the Middle East takes Bush's claims about democracy seriously? Are you kidding me?
