oppressed people desire to be free..... most of the time. ...April 2010

Reader comment on item: Additional Thoughts on "Winning the Propaganda War"

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Apr 11, 2010 at 23:18

The good people of the world who are held down by repressive governments wish to be free. They wish that the bad people who control and abuse them would stop.

Often we in the West have helped these people by various means.

The reason I said " most of the time " because the people under the iron boot of islam have been brainwashed so effectively to believe that anything other than islam is horribly wrong.

It is extremely difficult if not impossible to change the minds of islamic people who for decades have been fed a diet of nothing but hard core islamic beliefs.

This is one of the scary aspects of islam, total mind control.
