To Hell With Muslim Terrorism

An interesting piece , for once actually written by a muslim on an issue i have already seen aproached hundreds of times by non-muslims , i would advise anyone who wishes to comment to read the whole piece first and not just my snippet....


Pope Benedict’s lecturing Muslims today to hold their “fanatics” for a peaceful world is in a way paving the way for brining back to the Muslim world the scenes, which Mark Twain described in these words: “In many countries we have chained the savage and starved him to death... in many countries we have burned the savage at the stake... we have hunted the savage and his little children and their mother with dogs and guns... in many countries we have taken the savage’s land from him, and made him our slave, and lashed him every day, and broken his pride and made death his only friend, and overworked him till he dropped in his tracks.” In fact, worse than this sort of inhuman treatment is meted out to Muslims today. A proof of which lies in the fact that the US government is not releasing new pictures from Abu Ghraib because before them Mark Twain’s description of man’s inhumanity to man would pale by comparison.

It is too sad that those who are lecturing Muslims do not see what Director of Research of the California-based Institute for Economic Democracy, Dr. J. W. Smith, has observed. According to Dr. Smith, through the devastating historical process, Western civilization has been “responsible for violently killing 12 to 15 million people since WW II and causing the death of 100s of millions more as their economies were destroyed or those countries were denied the right to restructure to care for their people. Unknown as it is, and recognizing that this has been standard practice throughout colonialism, that is the record of the Western imperial centers of capital from 1945 to 1990.” He adds that, “One hundred and fifty thousand to 300,000 of these were tortured and killed by death squads set up by Western intelligence agencies, primarily the CIA.”[10]

Those who are lecturing 1.2 billion Muslims would do better to dig the root causes of present turmoil and realize the Muslims are not responsible for the present unjust global order.

Yeah they love to present themselves as the victims in every single situation and there are always a few that get sucked into it, you are clearly one of the few.

no connection to the above comments at all ,i have decided to add some very basic rules to sending comments to this site.

most sites have them and i have had a very small number of silly comments sent in the past

i feel most sites have rules for people who wish to post and that is fair if the rules here are clear for all to see

if you feel the rules are unfair or open to abuse or whatever , then feel free to say so and we will look at adjusting them

but there has to be some order even for a nutter like me :-)
