"Susan you think we 3rd worlders were scrabbling for roots to survive. "
not true at all, I always believed chinese people had the greatest past civilization. Somehow china is nowdays a third world, I also always believed the the ancient egyptians (pre-islam) were far more evoluted than the rest so again your assumption is wrong (assumption n. 123876864867)
"It was you (Thomas Macaulay) who claimed that "a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India and Arabia". Do you subscribe to that view Susan? If not why not?"
I am not thomas macaulay, sorry.
"You have the nerve to say that after shipping hundreds of thousands as slaves to slave markets "
you are talking about muslims right? because slavery still exists nowadays in muslim countries, but you third worlders are too busy than doing something about it, after all, a slave trader is wrong only when he's white, correct? if he's one of your brownish muslim friend, that's ok, especially if the slave is a non-muslim.
"Just as now you believe that the West has the right to the oil under their lands as you gave them the technology to pump it. Yes the West has the divine right to the world's natural resources."
Would you give a match to nero? Some idiot did it and look what happened
" If they refuse to sell it, it is an act of war."
On the contrary, if they refuse to sell it 2 good things
1) the west finally will wake up and find another resource that doesn't involve illiterate mohameddan supremacists
2) they don't sell, they don't earn, they starve, OK in my book
"When British rule is being talked divert attention to Muslim rule and bleat like sheep. bla bla bla. That is a very good attention grabber."
You say british rule was bad, I ask, compared to what?, that's the typical muslim reasoning, dhimmitude was fair, compared to what? compared to pure slavery or murder. Fine.
"Muslim is as Muslim does. When Muslim atrocities are pointed out bring in the crusades, Hitler, American Indians. You see any difference in what you have done here?"
all I know is that i am wasting my time with a third worders from india, that should move to a muslim country if he's so ashamed of the british colonialism.
"The Protestant church did not indulge in the inquisition, or persecute Galileo. They would not like to be bracketed with THE CHURCH on those issues. You are trying to dilute THE CHURCH's guilt in not taking the lead in fighting slavery by bringing in the protestants."
Let me think about why the british church separated from the roman one... mhmhmh, a lustful king who wanted divorce? how noble, how spiritual.
Oh yeah, but in this case it's better for you to put down the church compared to your hated british protestants. There's a greater evil.
"You are trying to dilute THE CHURCH's guilt in not taking the lead in fighting slavery by bringing in the protestants"
LOL, as a matter of fact it's where there is a catholic majority that there is still slavery, it's well known, saudi arabia, mali, mauritania, sudan...
"This is what you wrote:"I don't talk to muslims, other than to offend them. There is no contact with me and those people."This what I wrote: "I see the beginnings of a new caste system.""
That's like saying, I don't talk to rapists and women beaters, is that making a caste?
"You will offend Muslims, you will not deign to talk to them. Susan read about the caste system, that is the typical casteist attitude. Offend the lower castes, avoid contact with them."
I avoid contact with criminals too, is that making a caste?
"What did you expect the Iraqis to do? Lick your boots for shocking and awing them with your weapons of mass destruction?"
well let me think... italians had a dictator, removed by USA, italy suffered post war, but worked hard to re-establish itself. Finally it worked. The germans had a dictator, they suffered post war, but worked hard to re-establish themselves, now they are the motor of europe, Japan had a dictator, they suffered post war, but worked hard to re-establish itself, they are a bright economic empire. 3 success out of 3. A normal person would think that the superior iraqui culture could do the same. Well not, it must be because they are so morally superior, thanks to islamic supremacism?
So let me understand, in iraq, sunni are murdering shites inside their mosques, bombing them every day because of USA?
If I remember well, under saddam it was the other way around, a certain chemical ali, gassing kurds and shites, a certain doctor death (a woman expert on poisons) was thinking about how to murder as many shites as possible. After all, why saddam launched the iran-iraq war, killing his brother shites? Because of USA?
Could it be that the murderous, revengful muslims have now found another good excuse to murder each other? Why sunni are murdering shites thinking they are hurting USA? is USA shite?
"In full agreement there. Also you will be surprised (?) to know that the blockade that killed millions in Iraq were not by the Muslim people."
yes, it was mohammedan people
"Dictionary.com says a supremacist is a person who believes in or advocates the supremacy of a particular group, esp. a racial group: a white supremacist. "
what would be my group? I advocate the suprematism of chinese people, which are not my people at all. Assumption n. 26588954545444 wrong again for you.
"I can come with many other such claims. Let the experts accept it."
one one thing the experts agree, inventions of writing has nothing to do with iraq or islam, since that land was inhabitated by assyrians and babilonians. The descendants of those people are modern assyrians, all of christian religion. Now spread all over the world since xenophobic, racist and suprematist muslims cannot cope with that.
