in response to reader comment: No Point

Perhaps you might stop to consider the real weaknesses of most of the Islamic world. You have little in the way of agricultural resources and in many Muslim lands water is at a premium and difficult to come by. Your ability to feed yourselves is totally dependent upon the agricultural production of Europe and the United States. When there is no more food imported from the US you will starve. Do you really think that we would be so willing to feed those whos main objective is to kill us? We are not obligated to feed you even for humanitarian reasons. We do so out of the goodness of our own hearts.

We buy your oil and pay you good money for it. We do not need to do that, we could develop our own resources and leave you out in the cold. We do not need you or anything you have to offer, not your culture or your religion. Beyond oil, you have nothing of any value to offer us. You do not produce anything. You create no new medicines as do the Israelis. You make no new technological contributions as do the Israelis. In short you have done nothing to either enhance or improve our lives. All you have given us is headaches and we are sick of your ridiculous whining about injustice. The injustice is of your own making so clean up your own households before you come complaining to us.
