Original message Maybe the mistake was in telling people 9/11 had anything to do with Islam period.


It could have been framed as an attack by Saudi Nationals who wanted us out of Saudi Arabia but instead they told us that radical Islamists want to murder us. Then they told us that there are schools all over the world where they create warriors who want to Jihad against us. And then they finish with the idea that most American Muslims aren't like the ones who want to Jihad.

But we go to war with two Countries with Muslim residents, one who is actually known to be secular.

Isn't that just full of contradictions?

The fact is the Muslim religion HAS been portrayed very unfavorably by the American media. Do we ever see any stories of how Muslims take care of their poor or anything good coming out of the religion? Even when the Taliban provides a safe environment it's seen as a negative because that is just the hook in an otherwise objectionably oppressive regime.

George Bush used to talk about how Islam is a loving religion but what did he provide beyond that? Not much. It seems more like the pander to A community to me.

So what is this loving Muslim religion all about? Is this particular Cordoba Imam supposed to be different from the normal American Imam or an example of one? Do we mostly like Sufi Muslims because they preach cooperation with other communities but the rest are not as great?

America has no idea what Muslims are all about. We have been fed mostly negative things with just the assurance that American Muslims don't subscribe to these points of view. That doesn't do much for Muslim PR.


Stunning. Fucking stunning.

Nice to see Moonbats are still not on speaking terms with reality.

These are the type of goofs who thought that rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic would keep the ship from sinking.

Well, it's kinda both. The "problem" with dictators in the middle east is they tend to be less oppressive (and less dangerous) than democratically elected governments... because left to their own devices, people elect radical theocracies. Which is why we have a habit of backing dictators. Egypt is a great example.
