John- amen to that. We must remember that we have knowledge and rational thought

Reader comment on item: Will Europe Resist Islamization?
in response to reader comment: Be careful of the white people

John,

Reading through these comments only reaffirms the limited ability of muslim cultures to deal rationally with facts and reality. This impediment gives them a severe disadvantage in dealing with the west. See for example Saddam's claims that he was going to destroy our troops, turned out to be a lot of hot air, as his deputy shrieked about too, while we were entering Bagdad. Even his empty threats about WMD's turned out to be hot air and posturing (or they are in Syria)...

I just read a comment by Samer claiming that there are actually many more US casualties than reported. this is the brainwashed disinformation that they are fed daily, lies and more lies, to feed their fanatacism and furor, but giving them a false sense of security in the end. See Mansoor and his dire warnings to the west, 'better get ready' etc. he is pumped up full of hot air like the rest of these jokers.

We are not bound by totalitarian obsessive religious doctrines that confine us to a single train of thought. Let us hope that knowledge , freedom and reason win out over ignorance, confinement and lack of rational thought.

After all, how capable can one be of rational thinking when one spends half of the day with one's head in a carpet, repeating mindless chants, ritual washing- as someone said, it is the perfect religion for Obsessive Compulsives.

Submitting....
