in response to reader comment: Muslims are not the main problem

"I have no idea what the statistics are, but my guess is that dirty old muslim men wouldnt even rate in comparison with the dirty old western and asian men who keep the brothels and girly bars of the philippines, thailand, vietnam, cambodia, india etc etc. in business."

"Rate in comparison?" What are you using as a reference? And how are Arabs who do this better than whites and Asians?

"I do not justify their actions, but I would still rate their activities low on the scale of pedophilia enacted in the countries and by men of all nationalities."

You might not justify them, but you very clearly apologize for them and excuse them. I wonder why?

"I dont think the battle against pedophilia is helped by waging it at an enemy that will only accuse you of religious persecution and divert your resources."

So there's no point going after people who rape little girls and can claim discrimination. Great. And "divert your resources?" From what? Catching "real" pedophiles?

"By all means lets drive these dirty old men, these arab pedophiles, into the ground. But at the same time lets redouble our efforts in all other areas."

Why do Arab pedophiles deserve less attention than the others?

You obviously aren't serious when you say, "Let's drive these dirty old men...into the ground." I know this because you've already said that they're not so bad, these Arab child rapists, at least not as bad as Western child rapists.

So why should they be driven into the ground if they don't "rate in comparison" to the latter?
