I saw a Nat.Geographic special entitled "The Haj" a few years ago. It followed several converts up to and during the pilgimage to Mecca.

One of the pilgrims was a Black man from Africa who was so touched by the words encouraging charity which he was hearing that he wanted to do something about it. As it happened there was a nearby town whose residents were all very poor. This wonderful African with a heart of gold went and bought food and clothing, took it to them and distributed it.

The villagers were naturally very happy and, as the NatGeo announcer related, they were also amazed. Why? Again, in the words of the NatGeo announcer, who told us that they said "NO ONE HAD EVER DONE THAT FOR THEM BEFORE."

Think about it. Poor people, many just barely surviving, and next to them every year millions of fellow Muslims, many very wealthy, who NEVER LIFTED A FINGER TO HELP THEM.

That is when I realized that either Islam is the religion of Sodom, or Muslims have hearts of such stone that nothing can soften them - or both.

G-D has blessed them with oil, the wealth of which could have helped them build a society we can only dream about. But what have they done with the wealth? They have squandered it. Rather than build themselves up, they destroy themselves, blame others for their failures and in a vengeful rage seek to tear everyone else down.

And they preach to us about "caring," in which they really do not themselves believe, as they run about in a rampant "inshallah-fatalistic" frenzy to destroy the world.
