"I believe that, as I told the Crown Prince, the Almighty God has endowed each individual on the face of the earth with -- that expects each person to be treated with dignity. 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.

Mr. President, thank you for convening this meeting. Tomorrow we've got important meetings, as well. This is the beginning of a process where all of us must not allow the few to destroy the hopes of the many. "

Which few do you mean, Mr Bush? As a US citizen my hopes are being downtrodden on a daily basis by your administration, and you're just a few people.....

I might also add that what the president says here,

atlhough it is clearly ( i think ) not what he meant,

that each individual has an expectation of being treated with dignity.

and that religion tries to address the issue,

but without stating that he believes that each person has that dignity.

And to hear him say that, even though it is a slip of the tongue,

It is still one of the most true things that has passed his lips.
