What "point" of mine are you even responding to? How am I "tailing the
mullahs" by pointing out that the Defense Department issued a report
saying Muslims abroad resent America because of its imperialist
policies, and not its values? Are you on crack or something?
Seems like your tangent didn't need much of a pretext, anyway, given
As to your point about Muslims; I've always considered Islam a particularly
noxious form of supernatural-worship, no worse in its effects than the
superstitions professed by Christians, Hindus or Jews, but lamentably anti-modern in
That's nice to know. Maybe you need to read up on some history - and yes, there is actually a history,
pre 1980, of Islam; it is not inherently more "anti-modern" than other
religions. I'd say it has historically been way more progressive than Judaism or Christianity.
I am not aware of any mainstream Muslim intellectuals "greeting
barbarities" in Afghanistan or anywhere else. But it is telling that in
a post having nothing to do with the barbarities of Islamic
fundamentalism - just a post about Arab attitudes toward the US - you
feel compelled to pontificate on the subject anyway. This "pox on both
your houses" approach vis. imperialism vs. fundamentalism has all the
trappings of puerile moral equivalency at any rate.
The idiocy of your reply and crap about "tailing mullahs" - for 90% of
Muslims, Sunni Muslims, there are no "mullahs" in Islam - reveals only
your own ignorance on the subject.
