Reader comment on item: Why Corporations Fund Radical Islam

Submitted by Jane (United States), Sep 2, 2005 at 16:49


America has spent a whole generation trying so hard not to offend anyone or damage the psychy of any dysfunctional member of society that we have even rewritten much of our history, and apparently, run short of testosterone and self esteem along the way.

I was told by Arabs and Pakistanis that Arabian law forbids Americans to dress in their traditional robes. In our own country we cower before a small minority, so much so, that we won't even tell the truth if they don't want it revealed. Yet, Muslim men call us whores, bimbos, and cattle and jail our men for wearing a robe or turban in their land! We are allowed little of the freedom in their home that they demand as our guests. Some actually come here because our laws protect and allow them to hurt us even better than their own laws do.

American mothers threw out toy guns, keeping score at games, tough grading in school and encouraged little boys to be and feel more like little girls. It must have worked! New Orleans looks like the third world country Islamists want America to become. Martial Law and shoot on sight would have controlled things, but it takes testasterone and a confidence we don't even want our men to display. God forbid we sound offensive to a Jesse Jackson or Tony Mohammad - we'd rather grovel and pay them bribes to be silent. Paying blackmailers and gangs doesn't work - it only encourages more of the same and increases the threat.
