Denial ain't a river in Egypt, Jose

European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso Thursday stressed that there is no connection between acts of terrorism and Islamic countries.Barroso: No linkage between Muslim countries and terrorism - Irna

He told a press conference in Brussels Thursday afternoon that the upcoming Euro-Mediterranean summit will be an opportunity for Arab leaders "to distance themselves from the idea that there is a linkage between Islamic countries and terrorism."

"I know it is not true. We don't want to make that linkage but it would be helpful if the Islamic countries take this opportunity to clearly denounce terrorism," he said.


The real story, of course was in the basic no-show by Muslim leaders to the conference.The Courier-Mail: Summit undermined by Muslim no-show [28nov05]

I guess even Barrosso and his European pals couldn't grovel quite enough.
