It is a probablity

Reader comment on item: Bushfire Jihad

Submitted by Mary Connor (Australia), May 22, 2009 at 02:02

The article by Josh Gordon states that U.S. intelligence channels had in fact identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the U.S. and Europe and Russia to "start forest fires" claiming "scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels' forests when they do the sameto our lands." Given that it is the aim of true Muslims to destroy Western civilization i.e House of War .then burning forests, especially in an arid countrry like Australia where only 5% of the continent is forested would seem a quite logical thing to do. Firstly it is cheap - a packet of matches is far cheaper than, for example a bomb. Secondly it doesn't need elaborate planning. It gives maximum damage for a modest outlay, effecting both the economy and morale of the victims (all of us) and it is very hard to find the culprit. I believe that it would be better for Muslims to migrate to Muslim countries where their culture is understood. It would also be better for us as it appears they are very high maintenance. However, to this date ther is no proof that Muslims have been responsible for the fires.
