Cheating has consequences

Reader comment on item: Strange Logic in the Lebanon War
in response to reader comment: Welcome To The 21st Century Islamic Warfare

Submitted by Don Meaker (United States), Aug 20, 2006 at 00:55

When Islam depends on Western forbearance to make progress, they will succeed in diminishing western forbearance. When Islamic fascist-heretics reject modern progress, and depend on religious fervor, they will not destroy progress, but rather, will deplete the wells of religious fervor. When Islamic terrorists use the remaining credibility normally granted to western press, to push their fictions, they further reduce the credibility of the compliant western press.

Cheaters never prosper. Hiding behind non-combatant women and children in a conflict is cheating. Targeting noncombatant women and children is cheating. Making up "holy books" like the Quran to justify Arab aggression is cheating. Islam has no future. It made progress once, based on tolerance and belief. Now all that is left is threats and lies. It will be soon all over.
