in response to reader comment: I pity you

My people have been fighting for freedom and democracy before the Greeks named it around 490BCE. We know Muhammad and his Islaam rule. And we know that the very nature of democracy leaves it vulnerable to attack. Thus we have been standing on guard for more than two thousand years and have participated in every war of consequence since. If the mental geniuses who answer the call to jihad and those who squat in the dark praising OBL and donating their few pennies, ever woke up and began to question their so called leaders. Asked where do the rifles come from. Who makes them. Where does the dynamite and the semtex and the C4 come from and who makes it. Where do the rockets and grenades come from and who makes them. Where do the Toyotas come from and who makes them. Where does all the money come from. Asked why this fortune wasn't going to create jobs, to bring in industry, to health care and education.

If they hadn't submitted, if they hadn't so totally surrendered all thought of decentcy and what was right and just to their dictators. If Muslims put more value on their children than the few dollars they get for their dying in the name of jihad. If they truly cared about their childrens' lives, their education, their health, a good job, a good life. Well, I don't want to say too much. The arms dealers are getting richer and the muslim gene pool is being decimated .....so really? Is it me that has to worry about Islaam.

Submitting....
