Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"
in response to reader comment: You don't make sense

Kathy, I agree with you: Not all Muslims are bad, and certainly not all Christians are good. But I have a few questions regarding the rest:

"Educate yourself! Think about the hatred you direct towards muslims... is that helping matters... now think about what has been done to them.... and however wrong doing they have done... thing about whether or not is was provoked. You have so much venom in your words towards muslims and you have not experienced even 1% of what they have gone through because of the idiotic west... before they did ANYTHING! It's easy to point fingers now... right? ...."

Kathy, I am really curious what are those terrible things that have been done to these poor Muslims; what are those tribulations they "have gone through because of the idiotic west". Where and when did the West commit that critical provocation which can explain (certainly not justify) all the bestial, inhuman atrocities committed against innocent people, all in the name of the Islam? Please tell me what were (are?) those terrible sins committed by the West specifically against these poor Muslims, that were not committed also against the Chinese, the Indians, the Latin Americans… forgive me if I forgot somebody. Please help me too to educate myself.

I would like only to ask you, please do me a little favor: Please do not bring up again that beaten to death Palestinian argument. Anyway, everybody already knows very well by now that "there lay the real roots of all the Islamic grievances". But luckily the West has nothing to do with this one. It is those sly Jews who are to blame. The only thing the Europeans may feel guilty about is that they did not exterminate all their Jews thoroughly enough. That's really unforgivable!.....

On the same occasion I would like to suggest for your consideration a somewhat different approach: Perhaps a good explanation to the current Muslim nightmare we are all experiencing could be the Billions of Petrodollars amassed throughout the last century in the hands of a few Islamic bigots in the Arab peninsula and around the Persian Gulf?....Which unexpectedly made possible for them to revive their almost forgotten expansionist agenda? May this qualify for a "fateful provocation"?
