Comment on their being 'appalled'

Now, they are appalled at us??!! Well, what about their 'religious narcissism'? Their emphasis on 'religious jihad, intolerant treatment of non-muslims, the corruption, the slavery, the intimidation via their religion'? They are appalled at our football games? Gee, they are ok with people blowing up though - especially if it is an infidel! Dragging the bodies through the streets, burning them, and hanging them up even if children might see them!

In Egypt, they especially torment the Copts (a religious sect). I mention Egypt because they are mentioned in the article.

What we do is tolerate their intolerance and that is not freedom. That is just stupidity on our part. And as far as liking to make money! Gee - they take ours freely, and have the same money wants and needs as anyone. They would desecrate their tombs for a dollar and sell the articles to tourists.

The Middle East has more problems than we have. So, they kidnap the Jews and Christian children and keep them as slaves that they also have sex. So because they don't publish it on Al Jazeera - it doesn't happen? They rape their women and get away with it because she didn't have 4 witnesses willing to testify for her? They have 'honor killings' and still practice clitoral circumcision because it is ok per their religion. They treat non-muslims, if they live long enough, as dirt that they can abuse and over tax.

They need to clean up their own backyards.
