Why Jews Don't Want to Live Under Arab Rule

from today's New York Times:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A suicide bomber attacked a crowd of Iraqi Shi'ite pilgrims en route to a shrine on Wednesday, killing at least 25 and wounding 62 despite heavy security during a religious festival, a police source said.

The suicide bombing took place just short of a bridge where 1,000 Shi'ite pilgrims died in a stampede during the same rite in 2005 after hearing rumors of a bomb.

The attacker was wearing a belt full of explosives, the police source said. Suicide bombings are often a hallmark of Sunni Islamist groups like al Qaeda, which regard Shi'ite Muslims as apostates.

This is how they treat their fellow Muslims.

    What about Timothy McVeigh? He was a CHRISTIAN who killed his fellow Christians indiscriminately in the Oklahoma City bombing.

  2. I have permitted Christy his daily inanity because some of you may know someone as dumb as he is and hear this same stupid argument from them.

    The difference between Timothy McVeigh and the Muslims is that McVeigh was a great rarity. He represented a lunatic fringe of a tiny minority. By contrast, Muslim bombings have been commonplace ever since they got access to explosives.

    Consider the 1940's struggle for independence in India. The Hindus were led by Gandhi whose tactic was nonviolence and satyagraha (roughly "self-reliance").

    The Muslims were led by the father of Pakistan, Ali Jinnah. His tactic was bombing trains utterly packed with Hindus and Muslims because the trains belonged to British capitalists.

    The two tactics are the measure of the two societies and the two religions.

    Add to that Bali, London underground, Madrid subway, Berlin nightclub, Sbarra pizzeria, 9/11, Mumbai, synagogue in Paris, Karbala mosque, Achille Lauro, Moscow opera house, synagogue in Istanbul, and a thousand others so numerous as to merge to a haze of explosions and flying body parts.

    To Western people such attacks on civilians are abhorrent. To Muslims they are jihad.
