Reader comment on item: Muslims Respond to a President Obama
in response to reader comment: west asiatic faiths

Submitted by 2kmax (United States), Dec 11, 2008 at 10:00

All of you should keep your comments on the subject, which is how Muslims may (or are) reacting to a President Obama. The comment by "Jewish Internet Defense Force" ("We're doomed" because 78% of American Jews voted for Obama), while understandable, is a bit over the top. But the one saying "west asiatic faiths [i.e., Judaism, Christianity AND Islam]" are totalitarian and fascistic. That's a patently absurd statement, as distorted as it is bigoted and provocative.

It may look clever to write "west asiatic religions = WAR" but how do you explain the war in (Hindu) Sri Lanka, or the totalitarian, fascistic (Buddhist) regimes in Myanmar, or the brutal Communist (anti-western, atheistic) Chinese occupation of Tibet, or the historically awful Japanese (Buddhist/Shinto) occupations of China, Korea, and southeast Asia?

Now back to the topic: As a Jew (who did not vote for Obama), I am actually looking forward to seeing terrorist supporters and sympathizers driven by misguided religious zeal and hatred be exposed in this way. Maybe it will help open up the eyes of liberal multicultis who believe in the "basic goodness" or "humanity" of everyone indoctrinated to hate the west.
