"Throughout the course of history many civilizations have been violent"

Well thats the thing isnt it.. its not that violence exists, the question is WHO has the most blood on their hands... DO THE BODY COUNT....

Its about degrees is it not. We dont say its a black and white issue... why have the body counts for the last 200 years and we are talking:

Aboriginal peoples of the Americas 100 million killed (80% of the population)

The Slave Trade 20 million killed

Aboriginal peoples of Australia 4 million killed (over 90% of the population)

The Scramble for Africa 50 – 100 million killed

World War I – 20 million killed

World War 2 – 50 million killed

Mao's regime in China – 30 – 50 million killed

Yes, there have been many genocidal, maniac, barabarian hoardes over the last few hundred years but regardless of how you portray modern propagandised history of the last 10 years, you cant refute the truth... their is blood on your hands.

Did you say "shooting a dead body in the head"... well there isnt really anything i need say to you if you consider the needless... let me say again NEEDLESS attacking and killing of civilians in Korea, the Phillipines, Vietnam and Iraq. Thats just a small snippit of the last 60 years... we havent begun to count the CIA covert fun and games in Central and Southern America. Its only brainwashed Americans and deluded war mongerers that see the wars as efforts to liberate peoples... it was never about them, it was about supremacy, it was never about democracy it was about totalitarianism... "our way or the highway"

You see, that's the point. You are not the good guys... you never were... and you are not now.

"the bulk of the Muslim population you speak of are living in Mud Huts" mmm... where to start. Singapore and Malaysia have for some time now been the most "wired" populations in the world; unless im much mistaken these are wealthy countries, Muslim countries

  • 27 million in Malaysia
  • 5 million in Singapore (fast becoming the fund management and banking capital of the world)
  • 235 million in Indonesia
  • 1 billion people in India (15% of which is Muslim) rapidly becoming the globes resource as a new silicon valley

Mud huts... mmm... anyone been to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Bahrain or in fact anywhere other than their local Wal-Mart recently? I'm not going to argue that centuries of European and Western raping and pillagin of resources hasnt taken its toll... but seriously.... mud huts... you can do better than that cant you? You might as well say all Muslims live in the desert... (there again there are 400,000 in Texas alone!!!!)

SS....you can fool some of the people some of the time....
