After Jerusalem - It Will Be Another Venue of Islamic Contention

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel

Submitted by RobW (Saudi Arabia), Jun 10, 2009 at 03:12

Gents: Even if Jerusalem were handed to the Palestinians on a silver platter and its Jewish inhabitants exiled to the four corners of the Earth, Muslims would soon discover another grievance requiring "justice". We'll soon be hearing about their grievances over "occupied" Andalusia (Spain) and eventually Australia as well.

A well known Imam once said that Muslims have more rights to Australia than native Aussies - since they were illegally sent there as a criminal colony, while Muslims emigrated there legally). Of course - you'll never see them sharing power with the Aboriginies. This grievance theater is being staged in some other rather comical venues as well.

Consider the curious sight a few years ago - of an anti-American rally in Havana Cuba. At the head of the 50,000 man march walking alongside Cuban figureheads ? An Islamic Imam in flowing robes. No doubt there represent the "long standing Muslim community that so richly contributed to the development of that nation". One favorite story circulating here in the Middle East is that Neal Armstrong actually heard the Muslim call to prayer when he first landed on the moon. I kid you not.
