i think we should let Phaeton and Pooot sponsor that fella to fly over
and give his Refreshing speech to the 'minority'...
So he could clarify for us how ridiculous it is to assert
that the minority has gained power over the majority..

In a razor sharp demonstration of the influence of "Moderate Islam"
He would be killed within a week.

Guaranteed.

And the list of places in WHICH he would BE killed is rather telling, too...
Countries of his OWN political and religious Alliances..

He could take his pick where to end his life journey being all 'refreshing and moderate'...

Lahore, Islamabad, Thahrir Square Cairo, Jakarta, hell, any city in Afghanistan or Pakistan, really.
Indonesia, Pakistan, Yemen, Tunisia and Beirut Lebanon.. then he can continue his tour
through Algeria Mali, Ethiopia, Liberia, Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia,
and Malaysia, with stops in Alleppo, Daraa, Bengazhi..
Mecca, Medina, Kabul...Karachi,
Islamabad, Jalalabad..

And he can explain to the 2% what he says... the BOOK actually says.

Since Sock was being ridiculous to claim that what those books SAY
is irrelevant these days in the face of the momentum of radicalism..

And to further illustrate the stark contrasts between a primitive and progressive culture..if one of THOSE radical imams who is stirring the pot to inspire the protests and embassy burnings decided to tour america..
simply to give his view, as we propose with Mr. moderate up there, he would be given
a taxpayer-funded ARMED FUCKING ESCORT..and his rights would be protected.

And thats a fact that you cant deny no matter how self loathing you are as a westerner...

I once offended a couple of Muslim colleagues. Unintentionally, of course, but also very easily...

It happened in Mostar, a town in Bosnia which was pretty much famous for its religious tolerance, throughout the ages. Muslims, Catholics, Orthodox, Jews, everyone was living in peace and harmony. Until the Bosnian war, that is.
The town was famous for its 16th century Ottoman bridge called Old Bridge (Stari Most). It stood there for more than 400 years, until a certain Croatian general (a terribly untalented ex movie director, and a criminal...) ordered artillery to smash it down.

After the war, the EU sponsored (along with the famous opera singer Pavarotti and Brian Eno) a rebuild of an old building (now called Pavarotti Center) in which i attended a summer conference about some shit. The place was packed with Brits, Americans, Italians, you name it...all people with degrees.

After the speecehes and dinner and a lot of drinking, i went to my room to sleep, only to find it packed with 5-6 my colleagues from around the world, none of which i've ever seen in my life before. I rushed down to the organisator and start making their life a pure hell, but the poor woman said that unfortunately i'd have to manage myself somehow, because they have no space left to accomodate so many people. :) And that my room was the biggest, so they put the people there. So i said what the fuck, took a pillow and a blanket and went to the balcony to sleep.

Anyways, i slept terribly, but the worst thing happened in the early morning. I'm sound asleep and hear a terrible and loud sound, like an air-raid siren. I was like, what the fuck!! :shock: So i woke up and almost start running to the shelter, before i realised that was only a Muezzin calling people (through the loudspeakers) for the prayer in a mosque.
I'm allergic to the sound of air-raid sirens. I've heard that sound too many times not to be allergic, Iraq, Croatia, Bosnia, Africa, almost like i'm Christiane Amanpour's lover...

So i got myself together and went to the breakfast and saw three my friends, professors from
Sarajevo, Muslim guys, sitting on the table. We say hello, hug each other and shit. And i (stupidly) found appropriate to tell them my anectode about the Muezzin from early morning, but in the funniest and most innocent possible way.
The next second, they gave me the look, got up from the table and left. Never seen them again.

And i never even mentioned Allah or Mohammad...

In general, these are emotional people, combine that with a (still) very strong ideology and a total different culture compared to 'ours' and a lot can be explained.

What happens now is imo proof that 'American' foreign policy in this region is a total failure.
Bringing democracy (as 'we' see it) will bring extremist groups to the top, so the groups that were financed will turn against the 'donators' in the vacuum that exists after another leader / dictator is removed from the throne, backfire.

In 'our' culture religion is dying (only a matter of time), there is no 'mystery' anymore, we are ruled by technocrats / sociocrats / psychopaths, the result of the Darwinian revolution (survival of the fittest).
This is totaly opposed to 'these' moon cultures.

I apologize. When I leave work the last thing I want to do is go home and sit back down in front of a computer. My lack of response thus far has nothing to do with the subject matter and everything to do with my personal life and family.

Now, let me jump back in by saying this: My very first comments were based on everyone's racist, white-privileged response to "Muslims being so easily offended." For people to throw out things like that they are stupid or less evolved is offensive, even to me, and I am a little ol' white girl.

I do not, nor will I ever, condone violence. But what you are seeing in these people is passion. They feel a real passion for their Prophet Muhammad. The same passion Christians feel for Jesus Christ. (I am using Christianity as an example for the obvious reasons.)

Do I think they are wrong in resorting to violence? Abso-fucking-lutely. There is no excuse for abhorrent behavior like that... But to insult them based upon their religion and beliefs is pathetic and shows a person's true colors.

But like I said in the very first line of my original comment:

Oh shit, I missed the rally call!

I must get my middle-income, 40 aged Dave Ramsey Financial Peace Class Church Group to demolish the nearest falafel stand! Once they hear of the outrage, the women will tear themselves away from baking cookies and the men from crowing over their John Deer's and we can really strike fear into those middle eastern nations with our samuelthemule ROARS!!!!

Just hope we don't scruff our khakis.
