    Tsunami Aid Changed Some Muslims’ Attitudes Towards US

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 10:46 am

    The “stingy” U.S. is changing hearts and minds. No wonder the U.N. didn’t want the United States receiving credit for their massive disaster relief effort in response to the tsunami in Southeast Asia. Compare and contrast the U.N. relief efforts in Sudan and elsewhere with U.S. tsunami relief efforts.

    America’s humanitarian response to Southeast Asia’s devastating tsunami is changing the views Muslims in the affected areas have of the United States, President Bush said Tuesday.

    “I think the world is beginning to see a different impression of America,” he said after receiving a report from former presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton on their efforts to raise private contributions to the humanitarian campaign.

    In a recent poll of attitudes in Indonesia, 65 percent of respondents said they viewed the U.S. in a more favorable light as a result of the U.S. tsunami relief effort. The group which commissioned the poll said the results reflected “the first substantial shift of public opinion in the Muslim world” since 9/11.

    Bush said his two predecessors had on a recent visit to the stricken areas experienced “an outpouring of great kindness everywhere they went.”

    “I’m heartened that the good folks of Indonesia, for example, see a different America now when they think about our country,” he said.

    “They see a country which of course will defend our security, but a country which also cares deeply about suffering people, regardless of their religion, that when we find a Muslim child suffering we weep just as equally as when we find another child that suffers.” . . . .
