Fear, Scare mongering. Is this the religion that professes peace yet mutualizes & subjugates their women into being less than nothing. It is worse when their Imans stand from a pulpit, preach this message & no one does anything about it. What also scares me the most is there is a terrorist council right under the nose of the Anti Terrorists branch of the FBI. Go figure!!
A few years ago I saw someone defend Hirsi Ali online. A Muslim on the forum who had been friendly to that time responded that she 'looked like a giraffe with the face of a baboon." Quite revealing as to attitude of a young, intellectual Muslim towards women & Africans.
Why is it that the Muslims are not happy where they are and move to the U.S. And are not happy here? At least here they have freedom of speech. Why do they try to restrict the freedoms of others who they disagree with?
Before Americans decide what is better – Islam or Judeo Christianity- they might look to the success of each and ask themselves what they want for the future of their children… if it is Islam than they might look at 1400 years of Islam in over 50 once non Islamic countries…
If it is Judeo Christianity they might choose to look at America’s 300 year history and related success …
Informed reason, according to Plato, is the faculty best suited to make all the right and necessary decisions in a person’s life. As a just and healthy person is governed by knowledge and reason, a just society must be under the control of society’s most cultivated and best informed minds, its “lovers of wisdom.”
It is doubtful that there has ever been a more miserable human refuse than Jewish survivors after World War II. Starving, emaciated, stateless—they were not welcomed back by countries where they had lived for generations as assimilated and educated citizens. Germany was no place to return to and in Kielce, Poland, 40 Jews who survived the Holocaust were killed in a pogrom one year after the war ended. The European Jew, circa 1945, quickly went from victim to international refugee disaster.
Yet within a very brief time, this epic calamity disappeared, so much so that few people today even remember the period. How did this happen in an era when Palestinian refugees have continued to be stateless for generations?
In 1945, there were hundreds of thousands of Jewish survivors living in DP Camps (displaced persons) across Europe. They were fed and clothed by Jewish and international relief organizations. Had the world’s Jewish population played this situation as the Arabs and Palestinians have, everything would look very different today.
To begin with, the Jews would all still be living in these DP camps, only now the camps would have become squalid ghettos throughout Europe. The refugees would continue to be fed and clothed by a committee similar to UNRWA—the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (paid for mostly by the United States since 1948). Blessed with one of the world’s highest birth rates, they would now number in the many millions. And 66 years later, new generations, fed on a mixture of hate and lies against the Europeans, would now seethe with anger.
There are a few things I believe about the Israel/Palestinian situation and people’s reaction to it:
1. The roots of the dispute are in the soil of religion, not territory or politics.
2. The above is evidenced by the historic and sworn statements of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and the profound and pervasive antisemitism of Arab countries—itself seen daily in their public media.
3. Western liberals are willing to overlook Arab anti Semitism to concentrate entirely on the faults of Israel (and I grant that there are some of those), faults which do not include state-endorsed anti-Islamic propaganda. This double standard reflects, I think, some anti Semitism itself.
