Qui s'excuse.....!

Reader comment on item: On New York's "Khalil Gibran International Academy"

Submitted by Nick4693 (Japan), Mar 16, 2007 at 19:08

Given the propensity of Muslims for taking advantage of any liberal situation (such as the unbridled scope of building mosques in the US and the UK), I am immediately suspicious whenever I hear of an Arabic school being established. They ALWAYS start up in the most innocuous manner, but ALWAYS end up 95% Islamic teachings, 5% secular, and Islamic teachings mean one thing -- jihad and all kinds of other mischief, all to the detriment of their host nations.

Typical of Arabs, they first explain their intentions in the most innocent way, hoping to allay any possible fears that might arise, which immediately raises a lot of red flags in my mind. Gone are the days when we might have been taken in by their "innocuous" schemes. Muslims, all devious to the nth degree, no longer fool me, even for one minute

Qui s'excuse, s'accuse! ("He who excuses himself, accuses himself.")

I'm in complete agreement with Dr. Pipes on this one. Close it before it opens!

While on this subject, I would also like to point out the complete lack of reciprocity with regard to "religious" exchanges between the West and Islamic countries. Can anyone tell me why the US and the UK have allowed over 1,600 and 1,200 mosques respectively to be built in their countries, yet NOT ONE church, chapel, temple or synagogue is permitted to be erected in an Islamic country? In fact, Saudi Arabia, America's so-called friend in the Middle East, forbids the building of any structure dedicated to a religion other than Islam, yet the Saudis have been allowed to finance the building of these mosques in both America and England. Their funds, of course, have been generated at the pump, thus US and UK citizens are unwittingly paying for their own demise, for that is the aim of Islam, make no mistake about it!

Such an imbalance in trade would normally engender economic sanctions in today's business world, yet not one complaint seems to have been raised by the authorities in either country. Worse is the fact that all these mosques are spouting "Death to infidels," and we have not only allowed this treacherous people in, we have welcomed them with open arms.

Though religion is of no consequence to me, a rationalist, my contention is: No churches, no mosques, and certainly no schools!

When will people come to their senses?!
