Muslims in a dreamworld

Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think

Submitted by rick (United States), Jun 27, 2006 at 13:30

Not responsible for 9/11? Even those living in Europe? I guess only Muslims and Michael Moore. This should be a bit of a wake up. But it's actually in confromity with Muslim refusal to accept responsibility for their behavior. Maybe that's why mirrors are objects to be avoided in Muslim societies. They cannot look themselves in the face. Finger pointing is a much better way.

Hating Jews is a given. The anti-Semitism, especially in Arab countries, is beyond that of the German population during the 1930s and probably even the 1940s. Your average German was indoctrinated to dislike Jews but probably wouldn't personally throw one into an oven. . ...The only thing separating a Nazi Holocaust from an Arab one is the ability to do it. The Iranians are now working on that for their Arab brothers.

The bottom line is that such strong hate for others is based in the ultimate and real object of their hate.

Themselves.

They are failures. Their countries are failures. Their religion is a failure. They have been left behind by the 20th and now the 21st centuries. The non-Muslim world is moving ahead. The Muslim world is sinking in sand. They cannot build anything of value. The richest nations - those with fossil fuels - are the ultimate consumer societies- not making anything and only consuming foreign goods. The poorer Arab nations- most of the rest - are too poor to consume and are only consumed themselves by their hate. Hate for Israel and for Jews. Hate for the Great Satan. Hate for Lesser Satans. Hate for the long list of Infidels. Jews, Christians, Hindus, Bhuddists. Basically for Humanity and Mankind other than themselves. Even their lexicon is medieval. The Middle Ages were the "good old days" when Muslim ruled and infidels knew their place.

Well, they still have such successes. The genocide in Darfur. The continuation of the Islamic Slave Trade. 9/11. Some Spaniards and Brits blown up. And from time to time a murdered Jew or American...
