Oh please. I cannot believe that you would dare try to make excuses. Despite what the Quaran really says for women, there is a disparage in reality. Islamic states seek to only subjucate women to their rule. They treat them as property and as tools for birthing more Islamic males.

I absolutely am shocked that you would try to defend this behavior. But if that is what you want then fine. Enjoy. Be at peace while you are treated as a second class citizen. Far be it for me to fight for your rights as a human being when you are content to be treated as chattle.

I am thoroughly disgusted with these apologists and "excusionists" who try to make Islam out to be a beautiful faith of happiness and peace that has been hijacked by a few nut jobs. They want us to believe that Islamic government is wonderful. Tell that to the numerous people who have met their end because of a suicide bomber's agenda. Tell that to the countless girls in African-Muslim communities who've had to be subjected to clitorectomies. Tell that to the myriad of women who live in the middle-east are have no rights to be protected from their abusive husbands.

Now before anyone goes and states statistics to me about domestic violence in America, I will tell you to just stop right there. In the U.S. we have laws against it. They are applied with equal measure. Furthermore, we in the U.S. actually compile statistics. The women in the middle-eastern muslim countries who are abused are NEVER recorded as having suffered such. Therefore, before any of you muslim huggers state that muslim women are abused less according to statistics need to realize that the statistics for middle eastern women are skewed in the favor of the Islamic lie of peace.

I'm sure that many of you want to tell me that my problem is that I hate Muslims. Absolutely wrong. You cannot be more wrong than to say I hate Muslims. The fact is that I despise the Islamic faith and all it has caused . I despise how it wants to destroy Israel. I despise that it perpetuates the lie that the Judeo-Christian God and allah (I will no longer capitalize that name) are the same deity. Read to my other posts for information on that.

I despise that the middle east is the wealthiest region on earth because of petroleum but blame the west (along with Israel) for their poverty and oppression rather than their own despotic governments. I despise that followers of Islam seek special treatment in my country, the U.S.A., because they have special needs. One has to look only at Carver School in San Diego for a prime example of what I'm referring to.

I despise that if some cartoonists draw some pictures of mohamed, muslims riot and send death threats. While Christians and Jews deal with similar insults from media everyday. But you never catch a Baptist threatening to kill the creators of South Park. No. Only Muslims seem to be so possessed with their own righteousness that they would kill others for making a joke. That's what those cartoons were people, a joke. And guess what, in a free country, in a free society we have the right to make fun of, or even insult anything we want. Having to tolerate your beliefs being insulted is the price you must pay in order to live in a free society. But the Muslims don't want free. They want only their way. Otherwise it's death threats and finally death for all those who oppse.

I write this not for Muslims to read. I know Muslims are going to respond and try to sound polite and civil. They will tell me I'm misinformed. They will say that I should research more, my facts are all wrong. But to listen to what they say is the same as believing the scorpion when he says he's not poisonous. No, I write this for all those who are not Muslim and go about believing that Islam is our friend. Never fool yourself. Islam is the enmy. The U.S. has not officialy declared war on Islam, but Islam has declared war on us.

I'm not trying to encourage you to support President Bush (I don't support him). I'm not trying to say you should support America's involvement in Iraq, (I was against the Iraqi invasion). No I'm trying to encourage you to no longer be afraid of offending Muslims. Do not be fearful of speaking against their beliefs and doctrines. There is NO rule that says you have to support a political system disguised as a religious one. Oppose CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) any chance you have. Refuse to vote or contribute money to any elected politician who would deal or even meet with CAIR. Write them and tell them why you refuse to support their sel destructive behavior. CAIR only supports a pro-Muslim concept in the U.S.A. Research the influence they've had on numerous school boards across our country to see that they have an agenda of spreading their faith.

Protest (as I have done) against pro-Muslim rallies. Oppose groups that try to state that Muslims mean America no harm. These groups are either ignorant. Or are so open minded their brains have fallen to the floor. Informed and intelligent citizens is exactly what Islam can't abide by. So make yourself one and quit believing the peace hype. There will be no peace until we are dead or they are dead. Do not fool yoursel into thinking that by accepting Islamic poits of view you are somehow a better, more understanding, more tolerant person. In fact, you are endangering your life as well as the lives of others.

Before any of you state that I'm a bigot or I'm uneducated, let me tell you that I am no such thing. I am a U.S. History teacher. That makes me well informed and yes, favorable to my own country.
