Michael Husayn Young: A “Liberal” for Bush
Posted by Jack Stephens on May 6, 2007
As’ad, of the blog Angry Arab News Service/وكالة أنباء العربي الغاضب, writes about Michael Husayn Young being interviewed Najat Sharaf Ad-Din and his support for the Iraq War and his claim that he represents “Arab liberals:”
She asked him whether he believes Bush’s promises of democracy: he dodged that question, once, twice, and thrice. He just did not want to answer it. It was clear that he was embarrassed to say the he indeed believes Bush and his promises. He indicated that he supported the war and occupation of Iraq because it was good for “Arab liberals.” That was the hilarious part of the program: Young’s constant reference to himself as an unofficial spokesperson of Arab liberals. You would think that Arab liberals would at least select a spokesperson who can write and speak in classical Arabic.
