Trade In The Oil-Wars For Windmills

Reader comment on item: Islamic Economics: What Does It Mean?

Submitted by Linda (United Kingdom), Oct 1, 2007 at 09:07

A large portion on today's rise in Islamization has to do with oil wealth. All we wanted was the oil, but these Arabs have seen it as a way to catapult their religion over onto the rest of the world. Conveniently placing the Saudi's in the US's position - as a world superpower - by way of religious control.

We could talk on and on about Allah's three daughter goddesses and the real origins of Islam - later.

But for now we need to get ourselves off this oil.

How much would it cost to fit most houses with solar panels or to erect windmills in appropriate areas or to develop solar arrays such as in Southern Spain to fuel a place - such as Vegas and for future developments into totally new and viable forms of power generation and propulsion – in comparison to the cost of constantly going into these stagnating battles with the Middle East.

A lot of jobs will be created – with significantly less money going to people who dream and pray for our / the West's destruction.

The Islamic world - in truth should be able to develop all they want – but with this established hatred towards us / the free world – should we be asked to continue funding it?
