in response to reader comment: IS the problem Arabs or Islamists?

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Jun 30, 2012 at 07:02

Our dear ... Schills whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by islam and who is here to do his little taqiyya not realizing that he has been exposed as not trustworthy

Why not simply draw the conclusion that Arabs are not fit to govern themselves? This was the conclusion which was drawn by the western foreign policy establishment in the past.

Really? can you provide us with references to support this claim?

And you know what? The islamic historical tradition that you cannot read in Arabic tells us that Allah sent the invading Arabs because these great civiliaztions of the late antique period could not govern themselves and they needed the help of the Arabian imperialists (see Ibn Abd al-Hakam and the Arab invasion of Egypt's tarikh)

It was a conclusion that left violence as the only mode of political expression.

gobbledygook

But I will give you a chance: Could you give us ... one example?

I do not believe returning to this pre-9/11 mindset,

What on earth are you talking about? and who cares about what you believe or not? you tell us

updated only by editing out Arab for Islamist is a path to successfully confronting terrorist violence. Other forms of political expression are preferable to me, even if they are imperfect.

More drivel

Hint; stop these headlines and explain what you are saying

And I specifically separated Jihadists from Islamists

Back to sqare one so who is a jihadist and who is an islamist O paragon of wisdom?

precisely because there is no point in approaching Jihadists.

I thought that you told us that you plan to go on jihadi web sites and tell them that their way is the wrong way and I told you that you need to know Arabic first which you do not and that I can assure you that a fatwa will follow and it would serve you right!

Now you tell me why the twists and turns and why the delusions?
