President Bush meets with Iraqi President Jalal
Talabani during bilateral meetings related to the
United Nations General Assembly in New York
Bush:* U.S. not at
* Speech was last in series on war on
terrorism coordinated with Sept. 11
anniversary and midterm elections
UNITED NATIONS (AP) - President Bush tried
to quell anti-Americanism in the Middle East yester-
day by assuring Muslims that he is not waging war
against Islam, regardless of what "propaganda and
conspiracy theories" they hear.
Bush also pressed Iran to return at once to inter-
national talks on its nuclear program and threatened
consequences if the Iranians do not.
But his speech to the United Nations General
Assembly was less confrontational and aimed at
building bridges with people in the Middle East
angry with the United Staten.
"My country desires peace," Bush told world lead-
ers in the cavernous main hall at the U.N. "Extrem-
ists in your midst spread propaganda claiming that
the West is engaged in a war against Islam. This pro-
paganda is false and its purpose is to confuse you
and justify acts of terror. We respect Islam."
Bush's speech was the last in a series on the war
on terror, timed to surround last week's fifth anniver-
sary of the Sept. I1 attacks and to set the tone for the
final weeks of the U.S. midterm elections.
Bush's challenge is to build support among skep-
tical foreign leaders to confront multiple problems
in the region: the Iranian nuclear issue, a stalled
Israeli-Palestinian peace process, armed Hezbol-
lah militants in Lebanon and unabated violence in
Bush planned to meet later yesterday with Iraqi
President Jalal Talabani.
Addressing Iraqis specifically, Bush said, "We
will not abandon you in your struggle to build a free
He then appealed to other foreigners:
He told Afghans that the United States would
help defend democratic gains and fight extremists
who want to bring down their democratic govern-
He told the Lebanese that the world will help
them rebuild the country after it was battered in this
summer's fighting between Israel and Hezbollah.
NEWS IN BRIEF
Thailand's miltary ousts prime minister
Thailand's army commander staged a coup last night and ousted Prime Minister
Thaksin Shinawatra while he was in New York, circling his offices with tanks, declar-
ing martial law and revoking the constitution.
Gen. Sondhi Boonyaratkalin, who is known to be close to Thailand's revered
monarch and is a Muslim in this Buddhist-dominated nation, took power without
a shot being fired. He will serve as acting prime minister, said army spokesman
Col. Akara Chitroj.
"The armed forces commander and the national police commander have successful-
ly taken over Bangkok and the surrounding area in order to maintain peace and order.
There has been no struggle," the new leaders said in a statement on national television.
"We ask for the cooperation of the public and-ask your pardon for the inconvenience."
As soldiers and armored vehicles moved through drizzly Bangkok, the military
declared a provisional authority loyal to King Bhumibol Adulyadej, calling itself the
"Council of Administrative Reform."

Mystery object postpones shuttle landing
NASA postponed the return of space shuttle Atlantis for at least a day after a
small, mysterious object apparently fell off the ship in orbit yesterday and raised
fears that the spacecraft might not be able to make the journey home.
Space agency officials wanted extra time to establish whether the object was a
vital piece of the shuttle - such as the tiles that protect it from the blowtorch heat
of re-entry - and whether it damaged the spacecraft when it fell away.
"The question is: What is it? Is it something benign? ... Oris it something more
critical we should pay attention to?" said Wayne Hale, space shuttle program man-
ager. "We want to make sure we're safe to land before we commit to that rather
incredible journey through the Earth's atmosphere."
The shuttle has enough supplies to stay in space until Saturday while engineers
on the ground figure out whether the shuttle can safely make the journey home.
Protesters gather for third straight night
Hundreds of riot police streamed into the capital yesterday as protesters massed
again after a night of rioting over the prime minister's leaked admission that his
government repeatedly lied about the health of Hungary's economy.
By nightfall, some 10,000 people had gathered for a third night in Kossuth
Square, the vast plaza outside the neo-Gothic parliament building. Dozens waved
Hungarian flags, and some demonstrators set up tents, signaling they intended to
stay at least overnight.
Several said they would remain even longer - until the resignation of Prime
Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany - (Feh-RENZ DJUHR-chanj-ee) - whose taped
comments set off the country's worst violence since its failed anti-Soviet revolution
50 years ago.
Chiefjudge in Saddam Hussein trial replaced
The chief judge in Saddam Hussein's genocide trial was replaced yesterday amid
complaints from Shiite and Kurdish officials that he was easy on the deposed leader.
It was the second time that a chief judge was changed while Saddam was on trial; i4
each case there were accusations that Saddam was allowed too much leeway in court.
Abdullah al-Amiri was replaced on the five-member panel by his deputy in the trial,
Mohammed al-Uraibiy, a court official said. The new chief judge is a Shiite Arab, as
