Ron Paul : none of Arab nations wanted Saddam Hussein in Kuwait: Ron you either ignorant or demagogue or both . Palestinians , presented by PLO “Palestine Liberation Organization” and personally by Arafat endorsed Saddam’s invasion in Kuwait
CNN Presents God’s Warriors . Despite the all spin that CNN did put into the program the idea to compare Jewish, Christian and Muslim religious radicals is very productive. If we will go beyond what CNN is omitting in its program and we will compare side by side the Jewish, Christian and Muslims “ God warriors” few things will be obvious from that comparison :
So the whole idea to equalize Jewish, Christian and Muslims is disingenuous .
It does not matter what you think about Newt Gingrich but he definitely can make a point. He made few appearances recently and did few keen remarks. But most interesting ones were on the FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace” , July 29, 2007 he formulated what I think absolute and only true : neither republicans nor democrats have a vision of enormous problems we are faced with: “the Republicans don’t recognize the scale of the performance failure of government as a system, and the Democrats are living in a fantasy land in terms of their policy proposals.”(fox news)
Why I am choosing republicans today? Because I do not want to be associated with those democrats who, as Gingrich said, are “deeply opposed to American victory and deeply committed to American defeat.” (fox news)
I always was thinking that there is not anti war movement today only anti-victory . it looks like democrats are rushing to quit before we really can win, just ” punish” republicans for starting the war. You cannot say better than Gingrich: “We are faced with evil opponents. Those opponents need to be defeated. And if General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker come back in September and say, “We actually can win this thing,” I want to understand the rationale that says, “No, we don’t want to let America win. Let’s legislate defeat for the United States.” (fox news)
It is not between doves and hawks anymore . People who want to end the war by withdrawal are not doves because the are not for piece. They are for defeat. By surrendering or by “legislating defeat” as Gingrich named it they are not going to save any lives by quitting. As Gingrich said
“What I would say to any Democrat who wants America to leave is quite simple. Millions of Iraqis have sided with the United States. They are known in their neighborhoods. They are known in their cities. If we abandon them, they are going to be massacred.” (fox news)
Another Cambodia is coming to mind. So those “doves” who by pro-peace (meaning anti-victory) demagoguery are imposing on us unavoidable casualties are really vultures, not doves .
I do not read Newsweek . I but thanks do DR Bulldog and his article I paid attention of this piece . Please read my note blow understanding that my notes addressed not against Muslims but against Newsweek and its interpretation of problems of Muslims in America.
“After the attacks “our responsibilities changed,” says Mohiuddin, who emigrated from India when he was 17. “It forced people to say, ‘Where do I stand? Either I walk away from the faith or I become more involved in defending the faith, which [is] under assault’.”
defending the faith, which [is] under assault?????
Wait a second, it was us who were attacked. And, correct me if I am wrong, all those who attacked us were Muslims!! I am not saying that Muslims attacked us, but I am stating the simple fact that those who attacked us were Muslims.
“The Council on American Islamic Relations, an advocacy group, counted nearly 2,500 civil-rights complaints by Muslim Americans in 2006, a dramatic increase over the previous year.“
It may mean that there is more of violations but it may be mean that there are more complains ( including these which were inspired by propaganda of Newsweek)
“These are the kinds of stories that make news—women who sue for the right to wear the hijab in their driver’s license photo”
Wait a second: what kind of civil rights violations we are talking about??? The right to have a driver license without showing a face on the license ??? Why Muslim have to have more rights than me? Nobody would allow me to have a license without my face on it .
Are Muslims, according to author, better than me. More special??
“The six imams who were pulled off a US Airways flight last fall after praying openly at a Minneapolis airport gate have sued the airline and the airport commission for civil-rights violations.”
Nobody argues that Muslims have no right to pray. It does not mean however that have special right to pray anywhere, anytime with disregard of others. If I would start praying for example on sidewalk of a highway a trooper would be interested in me in the very same moment. You want to pray? Go to mosque! End of story
“I think the poll miscaptures what’s being said,” he says. “There is such a thing as legitimate resistance to oppression, and there is terrorism on both sides. It’s wrong, but there’s also the right to resist.”
Who said that ? Operative of Hamas ? Leader of Hezbollah? None of the above. Those are words of executive director of the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services in Detroit.
I am not going into whole Israeli -Arab question for right now but the message of Mr. director of the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services in Detroit is until Israeli issue will be not resolved ( and we all know what that means) USA cannot rely on its own Muslims. Is that a message? Give us Israel to pacify us?
“The poll numbers, in his view, don’t point to a threat of homegrown suicide bombers, but to a passionate defense of a resistance movement—the way, 30 years ago, an Irish-American teenager would have supported the IRA.”
IRA did not present the global religion which is in state of holy war with my country.
Did I miss something or we still talking about religion which is under flag of Jihad calling to kill Americans everywhere? You want a fair comparison ? <b>The fair comparison with IRA would be adequate if IRA would declare a holy war on all non Catholics and start killing them around the world for that being non Catholics, That would be case . But it is not.
“For him, the bombing of Afghanistan that followed was much more tragic and painful.”
Just one question was similarly painful to him bombing of Belgrade? When Americas were bombing Serbs protecting Muslims in Yugoslavia?? Or this particular bombing was OK?
If indeed “the Lackawanna Six were vulnerable boys seduced by a charismatic radical.”
First of all the executive director of the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services in Detroit who is saying that violence against Israel is “There is such a thing as legitimate resistance to oppression” is excellent inspiration for them as well.
Second of all: if charismatic radical is to be blamed , then why instead of condemning “charismatic radical” ( sounds like a honorable title in this context) they are running stories about alleged anti-Arab racism like an excuse for terrorism? If you so understanding to your “vulnerable boys” have some understanding to other “vulnerable boys” who may be “ frustrated” with 9/11 and with Jihad declared against t their country , anti-cartoon paranoia and beheading of infidels.
May our “vulnerable boys “ are as “vulnerable boys” as yours ?/ Did you ever had this thought??
Article ended with a statement which in this context sounds like a chilling threat :
“Losing Jamil Ahmed and Autri Sajedeen would be the worst thing in the world—not just for them, but for all of us.”
Meaning if Muslims in USA will not be happy we all pay the price
I think the questions we have to ask ourselves are
1. why Islam is only religion today which impose violence globally ?
Balkans. Middle east, Chechnya, Indonesia , Cashmere , Sudan, : wherever Islam has border with not Islamic world it is a trouble. Entire world cannot be wrong meaning Islam is doing something to inflame the world.
2. why Islam is the only religion today which imposes violence within its own community:
Palestinians versus Lebanon; Hamas versus Fattah; Shiites versus Sunnis in Iraq; and now within Pakistan it is the only religious community which has a permanent violent problems inside itself ( catholic versus protestants in Ireland is rather an exception than the rule, besides it is largely contained lately)
Islam was for decades trying to inflict violence on not Islamic world, as a result, it has created the new breed of hatemongering generation, created violent structures which went out of control and now inflicting pain on Islamic world itself : is it not a price to pay for hating the world?
there are brilliant free tips on the blogs for Muslims how to deal with that situation
“Here is a tip for my Pakistani brothers-when you know it is a radical mosque close the damn thing and donate the property to Israel. How many Imams are going to act up then? Here is another tip-don’t let anyone build a fortress like mosque. You are an Islamic country are you not? Why do they need a fortress? Do you really think anyone is going to attack it except you? BTW, I am available at reasonable rates to explain to you how to crush these islamonazis.” doctorbulldog
If it is not a metaphor of intellectual impotence of Muslim terrorism then what it is?
It is not enough to these morons from Hamas to recruit Mickey Mouse to reinforce their weakening power ( obviously they were incapable to invent anything, so they just doomed to destroy other peoples’ inventions) so, they … killed the poor creature !!!
“In the final skit, “Farfour” was killed by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour’s land. At one point, the mouse called the Israeli a “terrorist” read this shit if you want to
If it is not no a total intellectual degradation ,then what is that ??
“”Farfour was martyred while defending his land,” said Sara, the teen presenter. He was killed “by the killers of children,” she added.”
I do not know about Israelis being killers of children but what I know now is that Hamas is definitely is a killer of the stolen Mickey Mouse.
What is the most amusing in all this surrealistic story is that in the same time “Khaled Meshaal, the political head of the Islamic resistance movement Hamas, has said that dialogue is the only solution to the current Palestinian crisis.” read this shit
Hey , come on ,,,,, you just killed the Mickey Mouse and you want a peace? Negotiate your peace with Tom and Jerry!!!
