The enlightened prince to show the US the error of its ways

The Prince of Wales will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam this week because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11.

The Prince, who leaves on Tuesday for an eight-day tour of the US, has voiced private concerns over America's "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths.

The Prince raised his concerns when he met senior Muslims in London in November 2001. The gathering took place just two months after the attacks on New York and Washington. "I find the language and rhetoric coming from America too confrontational," the Prince said, according to one leader at the meeting.


Wow, does this fool really expect us to listen to anything he has to say? What an incredible pompous ass. By what right does he think he deserves any hearing from us in the States? I find it incredible that anyone in their right mind can say that we've been too intolerant of Islam since 9/11. In fact, you can look to a lot of our policies and say we've been handcuffed by our own sense of fairness. We go overboard to protect the rights and feelings of just about every group you can imagine, sometimes to our own detriment.

Hearing this from him just makes me sick. Keep your nose on your side of the pond where someone might give a flip what you think!
