    US appoints envoy to Muslim world

    BBC NEWS | Americas | US appoints envoy to Muslim world

    The US State Department has appointed its first Special Representative to Muslim Communities.

    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.

    The Muslim world has a few more geopolitical problems than the Hindu World. And there is no Druid World, other than WoW.

    Well, there might be a few. But they're hardly a major geopolitical factor.

    Well, it depends on what you define a druid as.

    There are people who are members of a religion which worships nature(more than one?), but I don't know enough about it to know what they call themselves.
