Pathetic barbarians!

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by Thomas Justin Kaze (Australia), Sep 28, 2006 at 03:14

I hate repeating myself, particularly when what I have to say has been public knowledge for years; but since it concerns those bullies – well, I will always find ample time to drop a line or two. "If you can't annoy someone," Kingsley Amis said, "there is little point in writing." Good man. And I am on the right site.

So, what is it that has become so annoying, if not directly threatening, to us and our lifestyle, and does not want to go away? Why are we all participating in this exchange of ideas, if not to face the obvious, discomforting truth? Sure; we will be accused of scare-mongering, intolerance and what-not, but lines must be drawn and certain points made.

Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists or atheists have never had outrageous plans to dominate the world, change its order and eliminate all opposition and critics – Muslims do. None of the mentioned above claim to be on such a "divine" mission.

Immigrants representing the above groups assimilate very well in their host countries and lead relatively successful lives, never expect any special treatment or extort any concessions by making threats of violence. They do not hold or display any alleged grudges, even though, historically speaking, they could: Jews do not bomb or terrorize Germans, Hindus do not repay England likewise for her earlier conquest of India and Buddhists do not rush to avenge old injustices inflicted upon them in China or Vietnam, Only M are never happy; they refuse to assimilate, invade rather than immigrate, lay constant claims and seem to hold grudges – most of them fictitious and not supported by shreds of evidence. Jews, Buddhists and those I have mentioned do not bomb cities, behead people, rape women who do not cover themselves in tribal costumes belonging on another planet, do not cause riots or murder their critics, later blaming the victims and accusing them of intolerance and racism – guess who does all that?

Jews, Buddhists or atheists do not burn embassies of Islamic countries in protest over the treatment of their people under the theocratic regimes, nor do they tell the venomous Islamic clerics to stop preaching hatred of non-Muslims; it is Muslims who do all the above, and, when having a finger unmistakably pointed at them, react with yet another fury – what pathetic barbarians!

Muslims' accusations of "Christian terrorism" (when they mean the ETA or IRA) are lame; neither ETA nor IRA bomb civilians in M lands or fly airplanes into the cube of Meccah, the Kuala Lumpur towers or some other holy-shmoly places in some holy-shmoly lands. See the difference? Sure, they claim that all they need is for us to leave their holy (of course!) lands – very well, here is the deal: we will leave your countries, and you will leave ours – would you guys like that?

No other religious minority enjoys so many undeserved privileges in the civilized countries or seats in parliaments – how many Jews, Hindus, Sikhs or Buddhists occupy seats in European parliaments, or do their representatives tell us what books we should read or what movies or plays we should watch? None, ever – apparently, because they have too much pride to sink down to the level where they would display their inferiority or superiority complexes – if they have any; also, no other minority demands that their religion or culture is so incredibly important that it should become a compulsory subject taught at public schools – Muslims do. They call us ignorant – but wrongly; we know much more than what they would want us to know. Actually, many of us know much more about Islam than do most Muslims; we do, because we engage our brains in studying and trying to understanding it – while they are not allowed to think about it logically, or in any way, critically.

As a result, their brains have shrunk to the point where there is no room for any logic or common sense, only for blind obedience, fear, jealousy and pure hatred. That, for the most part, explains Allah's hatred of Jews: Muhammad, may blood of all the innocents be upon him, envied and hated Jews (for being progressive, enterprizing and inventive – something that Arabs have never been), so it should not come as a surprize that the deity invented by him had to mimick and reflect his stance; Arabs – and all the other nations islamized by them – now do realize that they cannot even compare to Jews; their envy grows, and so does their impotent fury.

Muslims are desperately trying to either convert us or to subdue us, in the name of something that has no place in our way of life. Should we convert or die, because that is what their crazy g-d demands? Sorry, Muslims – your deity and his self-appointed prophet are of no authority to us; instead, why do you not take a good, long look at yourselves, re-examine and reconsider your vocabulary that you apply to us infidels, particularly Jews (who else!) – dogs, pigs and monkeys.

When we refuse to covert – they call us hypocrites. (A hypocrite is someone who uses double standards; someone who tells us one thing in the face and then does another behind our backs – I think I know who the real hypocrites are!) When we refuse to give in to their demands, and they are powerless to extort them – they call us intolerant. When we prosecute their murderers, extremists and rapists – they call us racists; I had no idea that very pious Muslim boys who rape Christian women for Allah, are a race. When it turns out that we understand the bottom line of their teachings only too well – they call us ignorant and accuse us of taking words out of context. And when we retaliate against terrorists and mobilize in order to prevent their allegedly "misguided" brethren from committing acts of terror against us, they accuse us of trampling their religious freedoms and claim that they are afraid. That, unfortunately, cannot be helped. If you do not want to be afraid, then stay down, lie low and do not make waves. I remember when, being a kid, I was always afraid of belting that awaited me at home, after I had done something unacceptable.

We are not telling Muslims what to do and how to live, in their own countries, so as to stay on the level. And yet they, the most primitive, brutal, superstitious and illiterate people on the planet, are demanding our surrender – what a joke!

I am not sure how many more warnings are there yet to be issued, but this one is from me: Leave us alone, Muslims, or you'll be sorry – the clock of our patience is ticking.
