Reader comment on item: Why Would Anyone Want to Blow Up Times Square?
in response to reader comment: A very dangerous doctrine is being preached

"This madness will not stop until Muslims around the world start assembling in city streets and squares for candle light vigils to oppose any violence done by Muslims in the name of Islam. No such protest is happening. There is no trace of a significant desire in the main stream Islamic societies to end this madness."

Pigs might fly. (Buraks certainly do not)

Put yourself in their shoes. As well as having to contend with your own lifetime's worth of imagination of the big,scary allah - and the social input of fellow victims of big, scary allah - you'd also realise you'd fallen far short of living a life anywhere near the example set by Mo.

You'd most likely have only one wife - and she was just 16 when you met her, not 6. You haven't got to see any angels yet, not even a Djinn. - though you live in hope. However, often you do feel like you are watched when using the john - possibly by the evil spirits the imams tell you are always in that location.

If you're living in the West, you're surrounded by Infidels who eat and drink and wear what they like. You're in a predicament financially - because you know you can't really support the half dozen screaming mini-muslims, monuments to your own narcissism, without social security.

So, in a rare moment of honesty with yourself (but only with yourself) - you begrudgingly admit that you should be feeling just a little bit grateful to your Infidel hosts in your new country. But these are the same Infidels you're told you are not to associate with, because you're also told that you 'are the best of people'. And many of these Infidels are quite happy being the way they are.

You can't quite handle that. They haven't been promised 72 virgins after leaving the world - and you know sure as anything they are not going to get them. Yet still they are relatively happy. How can it be so - without them knowing the enormous truth you know (or have been told you know)?. So, deep down but increasingly less deeply - you're frustrated.

Behind the mask you use when interacting with them (because, unfortunately, you still have to deal with them) , you build up a resentment towards them.

So when some of the brothers act on allah's behalf (after all, it's all allah's will, so you've been told) - you don't actually care that any of them are hurt maimed or killed really. You might catch a bit of the vibe of disgust and horror that the Infidels feel, and you may utter some words of condemnation when asked - surprising even yourself. But, acting on that? Pigs might fly. You're also aware that if you really spoke out - your loyalties would be questioned. And you know just what might happen.

In any case - underneath you know that only muslims are destined to rule the planet. So what's a little collateral damage along the way - if the end is so good?
