Two thoughts....

Alistair Campbell is right...they shouldn't "do God".

The demonstrations and riots are fading away, the world is moving on, Al Qaeda think it's fitting to stir up more religious hatred...

It's like asking should a politician adhere to a moral code...the answer is an obvious "yes", and if the name that western leaders give to their concept of judgement and here-after is God, is it any different to the inflaming winds of Allah.

I think as long as the concept of a supreme being resides on the premise of faith, there will be those who use the concept for their own ends, and those who recognise they will be judged by the same force on some day of reckoning.

If believing in a judgement and a God makes people more moral, more ethical, and nicer people all round then why should we "storm" over a man's personal faith.

It looks as though Tony Blair has seen fit to ignore this advice and is saying that the decision to invade Iraq should only be judged by God.

Looks like Cherie has a hell of a decision to make!

I don't have an issue with people's religious beliefs - if good is done in the name of religion all the better, I just feel that particularly on the subject of Iraq, Bush and Blair are between them making it sound like a holy crusade when in their version of reality they were trying to make it sound as if they were saving the Iraqis, and in the real world it was as much a war to secure oil supplies as anything else.

The Middle East has seen enough holy crusades in its time...leading to horrific bloodshed between Muslims and Christians....I stronly believe it doesn't need any more...Hence, "we don't do good" is excellent advice.

I think the only thing 'holy' in their crusade is their story as to why it was brought about. So many holes in it that it could serve as a makeshift collinder
