I work every day to keep my ego in check; avoid publicity like the plague except when there is no other option left to me. A survivial mechanism if you will. You mistake a quiet confidence w/ego. Two different things entirely.

>Genocide? do you really know what is really a Genocide? I think that you have no clue right? (Dummy no more)

Unlike dummies like u, I've seen the effects of genocide in action up close and personal, to include my own qaum at the hands of the Russians/Soviets in the 80s. Out of a population of 15 million Afghans, FIVE million were killed or intentionally maimed (especially the children). I live with the images, especially of the dead children and those missing 2 or more limbs, or missing sections of their faces. Five million fled to Iran and Pakistan and beyond. And, if our govt hadn't had the courage to supply the appropriate military hardware by the end of '86 the 5 million left inside might not have made it either. That is GENOCIDE: the deliberate targeting of a specific populace based on shared characteristics like ethnicity, religion, language, culture etc. I see "genocide" on a broad spectrum with overt, extermination as the most extreme manifestation of this evil tendency.

Yup, dealt w/all that up close and personal. That is why I know the evil "tendency" that lurks within our species and it isn't specific to one race or religion and can be triggered by just one evil "charismatic" person (Hitler, Stalin). I hope, despite your bigoted rantings, that you and your kin never face the horrors of genocide.

So before you cast aspersions, THINK! Think and use your G-D given reason and commonsense to be a better human being. Guessing here, but if you're a Christian, doesn't your church emphasize "turning the cheek and showing compassion"? Sapere Aude!
