Oh dear! an inflammatory post by an "islamist"---Baneeshkahn.

I don't believe Baneeshkahn to be an "Islamist". If nothing else the mere fact that such a simpleton's post would be allowed to appear on this website is proof that he is not "bona fides". I have no doubt-NONE-that I have spent more time among islamic people than has Baneeshkahn.

As in a game of chess you will find that even the most simple muslims think deeply and express themselves eloquently.

The most opinionated are the problem; not only here, in this little venue, but in reality. There is no more of a shred of justification, either divine or human, for the carnage and chaos in the middle east than there is in the desperation of any other person than there can be in any injustice, small or large.

Fairness is, or rather should be, the goal. The goal in the middle east, the goal in any venue life has to offer. There is a tang of greed at work in the attitude of Baneeshkahn that smacks of self-revelation...
