No matter what I do or say, you won't be convinced

Reader comment on item: Replacing the U.S. Constitution with the Koran
in response to reader comment: Nabil- Sorry but your justification re Muslim silence does not cut it

Sara:

My people fought against Jihadists while your leaders armed them with guns and tanks and supported them at the UN. And now you expect me to take stabs to my back for being a Muslim even after I have been condemning their actions and beliefs as being contrary to my Islamic beliefs?

I owe no one any apologies here. I know how to fight against those people. I would make George Bush look like Mahatma Gandhi.

If you support me in my fight against these "Islamic" extremists, you've got an ally in me. But if any of you want to fight against ME on account of what you THINK are my religious beliefs in spite of my rationalizations to the contrary, I have nothing more to say to you. I will answer hostile words with more hostile words.

Personally, the beliefs of other people don't bother me, unless they try to impose them on me. Being distressed, angry, fearful, hateful or anxious is not a valid excuse for unprovoked aggression against me or any other person whose beliefs are similar to mine.
