in response to reader comment: The world is getting tired

Spanky,

True what you are saying. yes the west are probably getting tired of fanatical Muslims. but Spanky, as some of the messages on this site are written by what seems to be good people who follow the religion of Islam, Muslims who feel they have to defend themselves because of what is being said.

Maybe they are good Muslims, and these people shouldn't have to defend themselves, they should maybe be agreeing with what has been said, and sadly these good people are in a minority group. when you do a head count concerning how many Muslims there are in the world, about 1.2billion, second biggest religion, Christianity number one. Thank god, we aren't the minority group imagine if we become the minority group, they will probably try to do to us what the Nazis did to the Jews.

The bigger picture looks like they are always looking for a reason to attack commit violent acts against innocent people who are trying to co exist in a peaceful way, because when anyone speaks out against them, they are threatened with death, for example salmon Rushdie, wrote a book about Islam, and then he had to hide away from the Muslim world, because there was a death wish put on him, On February 14, 1989 by one of there holy men, yer right holy, the Ayatollah Khomeni declared a fatwa on Rushdie. What you may not have known was that there was a cash bounty also offered for his assassination, murder in excess of $5 million at one point, all because he spoke out and used his right to freedom of speech. I would call that cold-blooded murder, if he were killed for speaking out, about the hypocrisy of his own religion.

Because it seems that whenever anyone speaks their mind, all they ever do is respond with violence and terrible threats of murder and mayhem. Maybe its because they are ruled by Dictators who rule them by chastising them, by telling them how it is and they are afraid of their leaders, who they call holy men. The problem with people who live in countries that are dictated to by people who weren't voted into power by the people, are they are very jealous of us, and our way of life, and sadly that breeds there hatred causing them to commit violence and threats against us.

Whenever you watch the news about an Arab country where Muslims are attacking American and British interests, look at the perpetrators, they hide behind cloth masks, because they are cowards, and take a good look at them, cant you see the hatred in them against what we call freedom. Maybe they are jealous of what we hold dear to us, i.e. freedom to be free people. They are all too afraid to say or do anything about it because they know the consequences.
