McCain's spiritual guide wants Islam destroyed

On 14/4/2008 a poll found McCain to be the best commander in chief amongst the three US candidates vying for presidency. So if McCain were to become the next US President what views would shape his attitudes to the Islamic world. Perhaps the answer lies with Reverend Rod Parsley who was conferred the title of "spiritual guide" by none other than McCain himself at a campaign rally in Cincinnati. Reverend Parsley regularly spews venom against Islam and in one of his books, in a chapter titled Islam: The Deception of Allah, he writes: "I cannot tell you how important it is that we understand the true nature of Islam, that we see it for what it really is. The fact is that America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed, and I believe September 11, 2001, was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore." Bush’s spiritual guide Pat Robertson espoused similar views. Then again! After seven years of fighting Islam, do Muslims really require proof that US governments are avid enemies of Islam.
