A new BBC documentary claims that President Bush has told other world leaders that he's on a mission from God. God apparently speaks to W, telling him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq as well as to establish a Palestinian state. I wonder what God's whispering in his ear about the gay community or the poor?
Bush made the claim when he met Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas and then foreign minister Nabil Shaath in June 2003, the ministers told the documentary series to be broadcast in Britain later this month.

The US leader also told them he had been ordered by God to create a Palestinian state, the ministers said.

Shaath, now the Palestinian information minister, said: " President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God.

'God would tell me, 'George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan'.'

"And I did, and then God would tell me, 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq...' And I did.

"'And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, 'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East.' And by God I'm gonna do it'," said Shaath.

He's trying to deny that he said this now, but you can just tell by the language, even though it's a quote from someone else, that those words came out of his mouth.
