".......Theft and Robbery? Surely you couldn't be European making such claims. "

Why bring race into this issue now - this only serves to muddy the waters. Sure, you get to cast a bigger net - but it actually damages your point. 'Europeans' encompasses former empires as diverse as the English, Spanish, French, Swedish, German , Russian and even Ukrainian.

"........Without going into the history of theft and robbery, "

...which is what you are alluding to without actually giving specific instances. By not doing so you do not highlight the point that much of this theft and robbery was going on between European powers.

I will ask, what nation on EARTH has not been at one point of time or another colonized and brutalized by Europeans, Christian and "Jew"?

There you go again - mixing up race and religion to prove a spurious point. Seeing Shinto Buddhism is the state religion of Japan - should we therefore say that WW2 was started by Buddhists when they attacked Pearl Harbour???


You would be making a far less facile argument if you had just said :

"I will ask, what nation on EARTH has not been at one point of time or another colonized and brutalized by other people or nations,?"


But keeping to your original question - China for one - apart from small settlements in some coastal cities by the English and Portuguese, Japan is another. Switzerland, Sweden are a couple more which come readily to mind. And Russia itself - despite having a war with the Swedes and a few major skirmishes with Germany - has never really been invaded successfully.

Which territories have the 'Jew' been successful in 'colonizing and brutalizing' (of course you're going to say Israel, but apart from that?

".........Now compare that figure to "Moslems".
The whole of North Africa, many parts of sub-Sharan Africa including Nigeria, Spain, Turkey, Bosnia, Kosovo, Albania, Bulgaria, Greece,Persia, India (Pakistan & Bangladesh), parts of Ethiopia, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Chechnya, Armenia ... etc etc And today we find new areaqs of conflict in southern Thailand, western Cambodia, the Philipines. Yes, Muslims are squeaky clean

"Or perhaps when the entire Muslim world what being occupied by Spain, France, Britain, Italy, and Zionist during world war 1 and 2. There is a common denominator in all of these situations. INVASION AND OCCUPATION!!!!"

You left out Germany in that group - and either intentionally or because you did not know - did not mention the keen support given by Muslims to the Axis powers in all the Muslim countries that they sent troops to. The reason being, you guessed it - Nazi germany's clearly defined intwentions towards the Jews.

Little did those hapless Muslims realise that , if Germany has won WW2 - the Muslim populations wwere high on the list of the 'untermenschen'. needing eradication.
