Harrak strikes....

Reader comment on item: Civil War in Iraq?

Submitted by PCMadness (New Zealand), Mar 3, 2006 at 23:29

I don't quite understand why people on these boards rise to the bait when HARRAK comes calling.

He hasn't actually added any value to any of the discussions I have read so far. Actually, he hasn't really discussed anything openly full stop. When his point if view is challenged, or he is presented with clear facts that contradict his beliefs he employs the strategy of diversion and basically tries to bamboozle people with inane ramblings and proverbs that mean absolutely nothing, either that or quoting from a predefined list of Old Testament passages. If pushed too far or the truth is too close for comfort he stops commenting. I've seen this here and on several other blogs and it appears to be a classic muslim response. Are all muslims coached in this method of debate, i.e. Never admit or even consider you may be mistaken, or worse still, totally wrong?

Can HARRAK give a straight answer to a straight question or enter into a debate giving clear, rational arguments and quoting his sources? I think not. Is it the muslim way, casting aspersions on all and sundry whilst refusing to acknowledge the unshaking subversive activity of Islamists across the globe....apparently.


PS. I would even hasten to add that he is much younger than he wishes to be perceived. I wouldn't be suprised if he's still at school.

Stick to the topic of the thread please
