Speaking to an audience in Doha, Qatar, the ol’ lip biter shows that he can still empathize with the best of them:
Former US president Bill Clinton warned of rising anti-Islamic prejudice, comparing it to historic anti-Semitism as he condemned the publishing of cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper.
“So now what are we going to do? … Replace the anti-Semitic prejudice with anti-Islamic prejudice?” he said at an economic conference in the Qatari capital of Doha.
In unrelated news, Danish cartoonists and, well, pretty much everyone Danish are advised to avoid the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Al Jazeera released a chilling tape of a weeping Jill Carroll, taken hostage by what were undoubtedly secular Iraqi freedom fighters. Al Queda’s number two guy proves that he survived a Predator strike by going on TV (al Jazeera again, I’m beginning to spot a trend) to say, “Neener-neener,” promise that we ain’t seen nothing yet, and call on Bush to convert to Islam. Elsewhere, the newly elected Palestinian leadership demonstrated their mature willingness to negotiate by demanding that Israel first change its flag, while insisting that the foreign aid funding pipelines stay open. In response, the EU hurriedly
threatened to double promised to keep funding Palestinian aid.
Film at eleven.
