"My knowledge of America is vastly superior to anything you can muster up, and you certainly don't know all Muslims from the inside out, though you have a right to your opinions. "

and now are you going to tell me that your car is bigger than mine? your dad is stronger than mine?

You were the one discussing europe matters without having a clue about it. PAY attention.

"you have just apologized for genocide and mass murder (committed against Bosnian Christians and Muslims alike by the Milosevich government"

there aren't many christians in bosnia, you are mistaking it with the christians of croatia.

And yes, I have apologised, because history teaches us that you have to take the lesser of 2 evils, milosevich was better than the muslims.

"Where is your compassion and sensitivity for the Bosnian victims? "

read my lips: IT WENT OUT OF THE WINDOW ON 9-11.

"I don't care whether the victims are Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Zoroastrians, Bahais, atheists, or Unitarians. "

I care if the victim is of any faith except muslims, satanists and scientology members.

"For goodness sake, don't tell me that you think the Anfal campaign of 1986-88 should have been ignored just because the Kurds (who really are moderates for the most part) happen to be NOMINALLY Muslim (though some are Zoroastrian). Would you consider Saddam's bombardment of the Kurds to be a "benevolent" genocide or a "defensive" genocide? Tell me which one."

the term "moderate" while totally unappropriate on muslims is off the hook when it comes to kurds. They might be better than shia/sunni but they are the most backward part of turkey.

Regardless, I don't split the hair, muslims are muslims everywhere. I don't care when they kill each other exactly as civilized people don't care when mafia families murder each other, actually doing a service to the society eliminating themselves.

This is realpolitik at its finest.

"The majority of my family was killed off in the Holocaust, and hence I refuse to take or accept apologies for the killing of innocents. How can I not sympathize with the Bosnians?"

...The bosnians wouldn't think twice about wiping outisrael and jews.

"And are you saying that what Milosevich did was justified (or "funny"). Was Pol Pot's genocidal Khamer Rouge regime of "Democratic Kampuchea" "justified" in its actions? Were the victims "sub-human?" If so, then you truly have a warped view of this world, no matter how dangerous you deem Islam to be."

I am not interested in debating apples and oranges, I don't sympathize with muslims suffering. Muslims will be the cause of our deaths. If you are Ok with it award yourself for your moral higher ground.

You keep the higher moral ground, I'd rather keep my life.
