Great, Libyan, you keep killing the women and children and bombing non-military places if it makes you feel like a real (European) man. The last time there was a mass declaration of war from multiple countries in the Middle East it was against Israel. The result? The Israeli's GAINED territories and you're still complaining about it today - like an impotent man in a whorehouse.

As we can see, if Libyan didn't actually support 9/11 he wouldn't threaten another one would he?

If 'moderate' Muslims want to know why their 'moderate' statements requesting peace and understanding aren't taken seriously I don't think it unrepresentative of the rest of us to say that a failure to categorically denounce those who 'mis'-represent their religion has quite a great deal to do with it. Saying 'we're not all like that' doesn't really convince Therefore any genuinely 'moderate' Muslims out there will presumably have little reservation in denouncing the endless stream of semi-literate, factually inaccurate, statements that Libyan makes as self-appointed spokesman for his entire religion. Maybe then your words will be taken a little more seriously. We shall see.

Alternatively, they could start dealing with the serious questions that are put to them rather than the easy ones about the 'dress code' in Islam as posed by rednecks. Both sides of the debate recognise that such questions are stupid so why answer them? Why not answer the questions about the absence of any condemnation of faked information by certain Danish imams, your feelings about the Beslan school massacre, Kashmir, the Janjaweed, Osama Bin Laden, Syrian machinations in Lebanon, worldwide rioting, etc

Can anybody find ONE good point from Libyan that is backed up by evidence to support it?
