Uncle Toms go around the world?

Karen Hughes: "I've reached out extensively to our Muslim-American community, because I believe they are a very important bridge. We send them around the world, they have a lot more credibility to debate issues of faith than I do as a Christian woman."

Karen Hughes: "The voices of Muslim Americans have more credibility in the Muslim world frankly than my voice as a government official."


So --- looks like we got some American Muslims going around the world --- speaking the gospel of Bush and Co. So, who are these Toms? And what exactly are they bridging?

Come on, lets have some full disclosure. Who exactly are these "bridge builders?" Who is on the pay roll? How much? Which organizations, seminars, conferences are being sponsored?

Maybe they say something like this: "trust Bush - he will bring liberation and democracy" (do they include the fine print? Democarcy = What Bush Wants ... Or Else, you outta luck, Bomb comin' your way!).

And then people wonder why Muslims elsewhere think so low about American Muslims.

With Hughes "American Muslim brigade", bridging the world --- may the Lord help us all!

as part of the duty of amr bil maruf wa nahy anil munkar (enjoining the good and forbidding the evil) Me thinks you need to name names and call these people out -- PUBLICLY. This is extremely necessary since so-called "american" Muslims are being used as a diplomatic cover to further western/U.S. occupation and imperialism in the Muslim world. We may not be able to go fight in Iraq but we have a duty to those in Abu Gharaib and Guantanimo to expose what is being done to them by uncle toms acting as accomplices in the enterprise.
