Photo of the Year: Live From the Laura Bush Islamist Breast Cancer Tour . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE, 10/25/07: Mrs. Bush dons the Islamic Headscarf (Hijab) for Saudi Women in Breast Cancer Tour. See Photos. ****
Trite But True: A Picture is, INDEED, Worth a Thousand Words.
I’ve written–twice (here and here)–about First Lady Laura Bush’s absurd Breast Cancer Awareness Tours of the Extremist Islamic World. Now comes this picture from AP that says it all. It’s a photo of Mrs. Bush posing with two United Arab Emirates (our “moderate” “ally”) alleged breast cancer survivors, Shareefa Sayed Al-Hashemi and Nabaweia Hussein Al Zaabi. I say “alleged breast cancer survivors” because–with those disguises–we have no clue who they are or even if they’re women (yes, I know that men get breast cancer, too). And, as we know, everything from the Muslim Mid-East is done for maximum propaganda effect, as if to say: “We’re just like you American women.” Riiiiight–Just. Like Us!
I’ve posted a few of my choice captions. Would love to read yours in the comments section. I’ve also posted USA Today’s caption, below, after my own.

Muslim Oreo???

When the first lady can’t even see the big picture, it becomes a sad cartoon…

spiffo on October 23, 2007 at 2:22 pm

Do you think she has any idea how much her husband is hated, and what a failure he is?

jeff on October 23, 2007 at 2:38 pm

At a press conference in Texas today, Laura Bush explained why she has not converted to Islam. “If you’ve ever had George’s Texas BBQ Beans, you’d understand.”

billyoblog on October 23, 2007 at 3:32 pm

How about an “islamic Motown sandwich”?

1shot1kill on October 23, 2007 at 4:14 pm

I used to think she was a pretty classy, intelligent lady, but stunts like this make me lose all respect for her. How can she be so blind? Early in the Bush administration, she seemed to really represent integrity and right thinking, but it looks like that is all gone now.

Dr. D on October 23, 2007 at 4:15 pm

This is the Bush administration’s idiotic attempt to improve America’s image in the Muslim world. Of course, the only thing which would truly improve our image is to die or revert.
Hard to believe that Laura Bush would so tarnish her reputation. That said, at least she’s not wearing a head scarf like Pelosi and Hughes.

sonomaca on October 23, 2007 at 5:52 pm

I wonder if Shirin Tahir-Kheli has anything to do with this. This “outreach” is part of her writ.
In the past, she’s been an ardent supporter of Pakistan in government and academic circles, as she believes or believed that the US “tilts” too far toward India. No surprise, since her father was booted out of India at the time of partition.
She has also been involved in the creation of the UN Human Rights Council after the UN Commission on Human Rights was axed. The HRC’s only objectives, it would seem, are to vilify Israel and deflect attention from some of the nastiest regimes on Earth.
She is a big proponent of the White House Iftar dinners (this year’s was in support of American Muslim women!), and she has helped to arrange Bush’s visit to the notoriously anti-Semitic and anti-Christian Islamic Center in Washington.
It would seem that ever since Grover Norquist (who many well-informed people suspect is a Muslim) lost carte blanch for terror supporters and Islamic supremacists to visit the White House, there has been a need for for Muslim “voices.”

sonomaca on October 23, 2007 at 6:18 pm

Grover Norquist is a muslim? Anyone have info on that? Source?

CarpeDiem on October 23, 2007 at 8:54 pm

Which party do I vote for, to end the muslim invasion? I guess I’ll write in Michael Savage, and ‘throw my vote away’, again.

steve ventry on October 23, 2007 at 9:45 pm

What will the First Lady do next?
Appear with two black men in chains?

feralcat9 on October 24, 2007 at 12:09 am

Laura Bush should be ashamed of herself. Making herself look like an idiot. Do those lumps of black polyester speak at all? Freaks. This picture should be widely circulated. Is THIS what we should be kowtowing to?

“Laura Bush Recently Diagnosed With Brain Cancer”

Jeremiah on October 24, 2007 at 4:06 am

Welcome to George Bush’s SAUDI AMERICA!

There is NO Santa Claus on October 24, 2007 at 7:07 am

You guys are missing something. We can see Laura is smiling. We can see her hair. The other two women are faceless, hairless ghosts. Nancy P. would have put on a head scarf in submission to Islamic sensibilities. No dhimmitude here, folks.

justsayno2islam on October 24, 2007 at 7:30 am

“First Lady Laura Bush meets with breast cancer survivors, Shareefa Sayed Al-Hashemi, left, and Nabaweia Hussein Al Zaabi, right…Um-m-m, or is it Shareefa Sayed Al-Hashemi, RIGHT, and Nabaweia Hussein Al Zaabi, LEFT??? Oh well, they all look the same…”

wholebrainer on October 24, 2007 at 8:30 am

I think the one on the right is sleeping.

TheOmegaMan on October 24, 2007 at 10:41 am

First the clit, then the breast, and if you could be so unlucky the head. And they say women are oppressed!

MadMom on October 24, 2007 at 12:30 pm

At least she isn’t wearing one of those silly Pelosi scarves of the dhimmi.
All in all, a pretty sad photo-op.

rougman on October 24, 2007 at 12:46 pm

Oh. There’s breasts under there?

Dan E Boye on October 24, 2007 at 3:44 pm

Ok here she is covered (or trying to cover up)..
…and yes it is dhimmi behavior.

greatcometof1577 on October 24, 2007 at 10:06 pm

One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn’t belong …

Kulhwch on October 24, 2007 at 10:53 pm

Oh – I just looked at this and it spoiled my day.
Goodbye sweet library lady – Hello anti-Semite.
Why do these women (?) pose for the camera at all in those outfits?
Maybe it is a bad Halloween joke?
And, I hate to be the fashion police but – while Laura may not be wearing a headscarf her outfit – looks like a middle eastern-esque compromise (as though her subservient head scarf had just been removed for the photo op).

crazycatkids on October 25, 2007 at 7:25 am

Hey, give the First Lady a break. At least, unlike Nancy Pelosi, she’s dressed like an American.

mcrider on October 25, 2007 at 11:42 am

Here’s a caption: “Laura in a B.M.O. sammich”
The term we used in Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia for women dressed like this was ìBMOsî; Black Moving Objects.
Iíll tell you this, when we were deployed there in Desert Storm to pull Kuwaitís ass out of the Iraqi fire, and ensure that Hussein didnít get any funny ideas about a side trip to Riyadh, we walked through the streets in uniform, full battle rattle, and M16s. We didnít take shit from anybody, and the U.S. Army made it clear to the goat-smelling King Abdullah that we were there to perform a mission and Hijabs and Burquas are not Army issue. Alot of the male locals shot us dirty looks, we promptly shot back. I still hate those fucking camel jockeysÖ.

SFCMAC on October 25, 2007 at 6:17 pm

Let’s not forget how financially connected to Saudi Arabia the Bush family is…. this why the binLadens were allowed to leave after 9/11 and this is why the hijackers were all Saudi, this is why all terrorist money is laundered by the Saudis, this is why no one is actually looking for Osama….
HOW are they our allies, again?

jeff on October 26, 2007 at 2:30 pm

Remove the tin foil hat and get back on your meds. There are plenty of legitimate reasons to hate the Saudis without succumbing to the fruitcake conspiracy theories which have been debunked over and over.

SFCMAC on October 26, 2007 at 2:55 pm

It’s hard to tell anything about the one on the right, but the one on the left seems to have nice eyes.

Joe B. on October 29, 2007 at 4:44 pm

I haven’t read every post to this image; but, every one that I have read shows me that you’ve missed the point. The middle-east is in need of such awareness. Women are often not seen as worthy of the medical attention that prevents or may cure terminal disease. Such a statement made by “our” first lady supporting the women who have survived is far more beneficial to the middle east than any comment I’ve read in protest on this page. And should the fact that “our” speaker of the house wore such Arab women’s adornments convince anyone of her level of support? Is she Muslim? Amusement and decentralized support for “our” country will hurt this country for generations to come. Think about that before you speak without first taking the time to learn a bit more about the situation.

SgtDbrt on October 30, 2007 at 4:34 pm

i think today she is smiling….they hate Obama now and Michelle has proven you can educate an idiot

Tim Ray on August 13, 2014 at 2:04 pm

u morons
how can u talk lyk dat laura bush is on a noble mission. and by the way u vil never admire a good thing
being covered reveals ur modesty unlike u ppl who are proud to walk nude on the roads …and critisising those who are far far better than u ….cheap idiot satanists…all of u vil go to hell
