Just saying, you rarely see a good looking Muslim or more specific, Middle eastern person.

Of course there are some good looking ones, but the ratio is just way off.


ITS ALL ABOUT THE FUCKIN RATIO!!!!!

That's true.

But you can't expect people to like you if you say they're fucking ugly.

If you actually care what do they think, that is...

I never said I wanted Muslims to like me.

I just wanted you all to know I think most of them are ugly. (on the outside)

Thanks for reading. :D

Still, no rednecks killed a Libyan or whichever ambassador because of this video. Which is equally offensive, imo...

ALL 'fanatics' of any variety and over anything are easily offended.


From a quick google -


'Fanaticism is a belief or behavior involving uncritical zeal, particularly for an extreme religious or political cause or in some cases sports, or with an obsessive enthusiasm for a pastime or hobby. Philosopher George Santayana defines fanaticism as "redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim";[2] according to Winston Churchill, "A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject". By either description the fanatic displays very strict standards and little tolerance for contrary ideas or opinions.'


The real question should be... 'why do people become fanatical about anything?'

Why are people so caught up in their cause that they forget the fundemental aim of their cause?

Religious people start off with good intention, then something happens that triggers resentment and intolerance for any oposing view. What we need to do is determine what the trigger is that makes a person go against the original intentian of the belief.

I am generalising here because I do not see it as a 'muslim' issue, I see it as an issue that spans all religions, political spheres and permeates through many other (less noticeable) parts of our society.

I do not support the contention that the fanatical behaviour in Muslim countries is triggered by the wests' involvement in their affairs, in most if not all cases western involvement has been requested by the governments of these countries, the what's and the hows etc are irrelevant. It seems to me that there are powers at work behind the scenes and in the underground that are using the fanatics amongst the populace to incite the violence, the people are being manipulated either by the west (on one side) or by those who do not like the changes that are occuring in their countries and who also lack the majority support to seize the power they require to affect their changes. They then resort to the lowest common denominator.

Don't shhot me down, these are just my thoughts. I just do not believe that one can pinpoint with precise accuracy the causes of the events that are leading to the unrest. The fanatics will always be around, and in many cases they do not pose any threat or otherwise to the general populace, now, put in the mix someone who can manipulate the fanatical views to the point where people feel they can legitimately express their frustrations without retribution or indeed with the blessings of their belief/god, and there you have the makings of a disaster. A person with conviction in these matters is to be feared.
