  3. It is interesting that November 2012 as Islamophobic Awareness Month coincides with the month that Morsi declared himself Pharaoh of Egypt. Just sayin'.

  5. I concur with Odie and Silver.

    Spot-on Pat Condell!! He never fails to put things into perspective.

    I don't or will I ever acknowledge Islam as a religion but a cult bent on destroying people and their nations.

  6. That beautiful old gentleman speaks even better than he looks. Too bad the video stops about 30 sec into it and goes back to the start and repeats. I'd like to hear all of what he's saying. It's amusing, though, because everything he says abut Islamophobia could easily be said about anti-Semitism. The sacred cow treatment the chosen people have gotten since the second war was the start of the pc movement. We're not supposed to say that, but it's true.

  7. It should have been Islamic awareness month.
    Only when the majority of the Morons in society put down their i-phones and start educating themselves about the threat from Islam will we be able to defeat this scourge.

    Not gonna hold my breath though, people are more interested in their addiction to the Entertainment industry than they are in learning whats on going on in the world......Case in point....look at who got elected on Nov 6.

  8. Katharine,
    The video doesn't play properly for you? How odd! It's played all the way through for me at least three times. Technology!

    could easily be said about anti-Semitism. The sacred cow treatment the chosen people have gotten since the second war

    You may have an element of truth in the above. However, I don't share the same view in toto.

    I will say that the Holocaust was so awful and so unspeakably barbaric that people should have learned a lesson: that the world should not condemn individuals out of hand just because they belong to a certain ethnic or religious group.

    I do find at least one big difference between Islam and Judaism: followers of the former are taught from day one to hate all but Muslims; followers of the latter are not taught from day one to hate all but Jews.

    Are there Jews that I don't like? Certainly. There are all sorts of individuals that I don't like, and those individuals belong to every ethnic and tribal group on the planet.

    I don't like or dislike any person based on the group to which that person belongs. That said, it is somewhat the nature of human beings to stereotype "the other."

    In my own case, I even stereotype myself. I'm "a determined German." In my own experience, both within and outside my family, I find that Germans are "bull headed" (as my mother put it).

  9. Leticia,
    I don't or will I ever acknowledge Islam as a religion but a cult bent on destroying people and their nations.

    There is clearly no doubt about the fact that Islam has strong elements of cultism -- particularly fundamental Islam, which many Muslims claim is "the real Islam."

    It is the height of folly no ignore certain realities about Islam. Yet, on the West goes -- doing exactly that!
