Why muslim countries are falling apart

Reader comment on item: Assessing the American-Led Effort in Iraq

I wrote this in another blog - "I think that to leave any muslim country will just mean they digress. There is no incentive for the muslims to do what they must. Even in Saudi Arabia they do not have an infrastructure to carry on when the petrol dollars dry out.

Muslims depend on dhimmi to do work that they do not want to do. They also depend on the dhimmi for their tax base. And we have seen that muslims prefer to mistreat those dhimmi and they are either tortured/killed, or driven out.

At one point the saudis tried to bribe their youth to do the jobs that would otherwise be done by dhimmi - no one wanted to take the jobs even if they were given money to do them - extra money. What saudi has is a tremendous number of people, who instead, will take islamic studies and then when they graduate - do nothing or join the forces of jihad.

Iran has a problem too with a poor economy. Pakistan has a problem. The Palestinians have a problem. Egypt depends on tourist dollars, but they still have a lot of dependence on dhimmi to do the jobs that they feel muslims should not have to do. And we have seen an increase in their violence against their dhimmi too.

Right now, many of these countries are depending on OUR taxes, and the European's taxes to be sent to them - basically, it is dhimmi payments to them. We do not understand the muslims - none of them. And personally, I find their whole thing rather repugnant.

This might be an over simplistic viewpoint, but it is true. There is no incentive for muslims to do anything for themselves. Right now I believe they are just biding their time until the troops are out of Iraq and they will go back to their usual killings. Why? Because that was told for them to do too. If the enemy is greater than they are and outgunned, then it is ok to retreat and wait until another day. It is actually a good tactic - one that our military/politicians do not know. Our guys need to crack open not only the koran as Thomas Jefferson did, but also Sun Tzu's 'Art of War' and instead of just mouthing the words - read them, take them in and digest them, and learn from them.

If people do not think that this is true haven't looked more closely at muslim societies. Look at what they are insisting that children read, day in and day out, in the more newly occupied muslim countries in Southeast Asia - the koran and only the koran. They also haven't read up anything on what their prophet did and told them to do.
