Mr. Orange, you can copy and paste as many articles as you want from neocon websites and it still doesn't change my life experiences living in the Middle East and in Islamic communities. All of that is just copy and pasted propaganda put forth by Al-Qaeda and Wahhabis. Pat yourself on the back good sir for helping to spread it some more. Is it based in traditional Islam. Some of it is. But most of it is extremely distorted.

As for those bloody pics of the Ashura festival, that practice which you portray as "Islamic" is a Shi'a practice that not even all Shi'as believe in. Sunni Muslims likewise look at such pictures in disgust and horror. There is no equivalent Sunni practice in any celebration.

However again, let me state again because you guys just are not listening... I am NOT here defending Islam. You keep insisting that. What I am trying to get through your heads is that there are very moderate interpretations of Islam that instead of promoting your guys are absolutely crushing into the ground by flooding the internet with copy and pasted Wahhabi/Al-Qaeda rhetoric about what the TRUE ISLAM is.

If you guys absolutely believe that all Muslims are the devil, then get busy and start organizing a massive grassroots movement to expel every Muslim, born here or not, citizen or not, from America. Hey we did a good job containing and eliminating those savage Native Americans. Why can't we do it with these hell-spawned Mohammadans that you guys believe are taking over the world?

Even better, how about circulting a petition for our government to nuke Mecca and Medina and wipe out every Major Muslim nation....because after-all we can't leave any to multiply like vermin and spread their filth can we? Put your money where you mouth is and come up with more realistic solutions then what I was purposing before we got sidetracked into this whole "The REAL ISLAM arguement". Do you guys even remember what I was advocating? Probably not.

At any rate... if you guys are not interested in alternative solutions to ending the war on terror, then I should quit wasting my time here. After this round of posts I'm probably going to cut it off as I need to get back to trying to convince the people that matter in our government and military.
