This is a WaPo report on the Sharm el-Sheikh meeting. Very interesting, and makes clear that Bush, in what appears on first reading to be a private meeting--yet some of his words were caught by a TV microphone, not intended for public hearing--was quite forceful.
"The Almighty God has endowed each individual on the face of the earth with, expecting each person to be treated with dignity," Bush told the leaders. "This is a universal call. It’s the call of all religions -- that each person must be free and treated with respect. And it is with that call that I feel passionate about the need to move forward so that the world can be more peaceful, more free and more hopeful."
After Bush said "God bless our work," his listeners applauded.
