Reader comment on item: In Europe, Remorse Has Turned to Masochism

Submitted by Mark D. (United States), Apr 27, 2010 at 21:27

---- Muslims tend to have the most hostile attitudes toward the West ---

For one thing, they live in the 15th century and the West live in the 21st century....

And there is a difference between someone using force defending oneself from say, getting attacked by murderers, robbers, muggers, or rapists, as opposed to say attacking someone without provocation.

I have long been frustrated trying to knock some sense into Muslim posters in another board, trying to drive this point home to no success. Instead, you never hear the end of it - the end of odor of sanctity.

You twist Israel's arm, then you scream bloody murder?

You don't want the Israelis to move a muscle? Then don't terrorize them.

Instead, go chase yourself! Go climb a tree! Go fly a kite! Go jump in the lake!

Leave people alone.

Mark D.
