During the reign of George Bush Jnr I posed the following question to a group of Muslims, if George Bush was a Muslim what would be our reaction to his adventures in Iraq, Afghanistan and his War of Terror in general? The room fell silent. I broke the silence and stated we would probably be celebrating and claim that he was doing the work of Allah.
However, I am confident that the ‘left’ of Islam namely the Sufi’s would voice their opposition, demand justice for all regardless of faith and challenge religious jingoism and extremism.
And if the medieval Muslim Andalucian miracle is anything to go by then a ‘Muslim Bush’ would be more enlightened...Inshallah / God Willing!
Salaam / Peace
