    It might but the Bangladesh Govn. keeps a very tight control over the Imans and what can be preached.

    Oh and for the record all the Countries listed also have it in the Constitution that affirms Islam as the States Religion.

    And this proves what? Do 19 people represent the Muslim world? Do 19 people represent Saudi Arabia? Does Saudi Arabia represent the Muslim world?
    If it's only a very small fraction of Muslims that hate and want to destroy America and the rest love us and want to be just like us, then why an envoy?

    There are anti American terrorists in every part of the Muslim Community. There are American Muslims that hate America. The Taliban aren't the only Muslims that hate us and want to kill us. Why don't all Muslims work together to destroy Islamic extemism, everywhere?

    Don't label it secular.
    I would hardly call Pakistan secular.

    Turkey may be the only one on the list.

    By going after the terrorists with the same firey zeal they went after cartoonists. Why do we see more outrage from the Muslim community over a few cartoons and none over a bunch of terrorists. One thing's for sure, lip service isn't going to defeat the Islamo-Facists.

    The Muslims speak the language, know the customs, can blend in and infiltrate. That's an advantage the West doesn't have. During the Indian Wars of the 19th Century, who were the best indian trackers and indian fighters? Other indians.

    So, the best Indian fighters are Indian?

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Farah Pandith would play a leading role in US efforts to "engage Muslims around the world".

    She said Ms Pandith, who was born in Indian-administered Kashmir, would bring years of experience to the role.

    The appointment is part of President Barack Obama's attempts to improve relations with the Muslim world.

    Mrs Clinton said Ms Pandith "sees her personal experience as an illustration of how Muslim immigrants to the US can successfully integrate themselves into American society".

    The State Department said Ms Pandith, who is a Muslim, would be responsible for helping US efforts to "engage with Muslims around the world on a people-to-people and organisational level".

    Great just what we need so I guess next we will have a special envoy to the Hindu World and then Druid World. Man this is a smack of Separation of Church and State and Racist by The Obama Admin. but hey it's Mr. Obama he can do anything he wants.
    "COMMUNITIES", what the hell??? Next they'll be getting welfare checks. Communities is a code word for liberal initiatives. Why call the position a special representative....community organizers would work better.
