Reader comment on item: Shoeless George Bush
in response to reader comment: Self-critism of everything but Islam or intellectual janissaries

Well...I could give up with all the media all the time showing all these crazy Muslims, but I would hardly call the Balkans a hotbed of seething crazy terrorists. Chechnya? Maybe. But Bosnia and Kosovo are quite different. There are most definitely disturbing signs of Wahhabi influence growing in these regions, but part of that is because WE ARE NOT COUNTERING IT but rather just continuing to justify that Wahhabis are indeed the rightful standard bearers of Islam.

All I ask is that conservatives try to keep an open mind at experimenting with alternatives. Otherwise what is the logical answer if in fact you are right and that you can not trust a SINGLE Muslim and that their religion is inherently evil???

How do you get hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide to abandon their religion that remains a core part of their culture, their history, and their day to day life....more importantly the part that defines in their minds and hearts who they are as human beings? How do you force them reject Islam?

If you have an answer to that, I would be super excited. But I have yet to hear anyone answer that except with one solution: Genocide.
Are you prepared to nuke and slaughter hundreds of millions of people? Is this part of God's plan?

If so I want no part of it and if God says I am evil for not supporting the slaughter of millions of people, then I will gladly accept his punishment and walk with open arms to the gateways of hell if hell exists. And if not... and there is nothing after death, then that will be good to have an end to such a horrible nightmare. When you have lived amongst Muslims, played with their children, had them treat you with most incredible humility and hospitality, listened to their hopes and dreams, their anger, their joy,... and you realize that they are human beings perhaps you and others here might be a little less reluctant to see them as sub-human demon like creatures.

At any rate, my hope is that I do not end up just piddling around on moderate forums (or even extremist forums) but that rather I get funding for truly large scale internet counter-propaganda production aimed at a massive audience of Muslims rather then just individuals on web forums... I'm also working on programs involved in deprogramming captured militants in order to turn them and get useful intelligence out of them based upon successful programs in Indonesia and Yemen (although more successful in Indonesia).

Anyways.... my main point of even posting here was not to defend Islam, or CAIR, or any of that. It was to show that it is possible to refute Wahhabist brands of Islam that you guys continue to defend as the true Islam. But nobody here seems very interested so I'm probably just spinning my wheels and wasting everyone's time.

Fortunately I have some good contacts in the U.S. Army and in intelligence that hopefully will hook me up with the funding. (I haven't mentioned everything I am doing research on by the way.) If what I propose doesn't work ah well, at least I gave it my best shot and it won't waste much of the taxpayer's dollars. However if what I propose works.... you will see the shape of counter-terrorism and the war on terror shift dramatically into something never seen before in modern history.
