Yeah, you know, strangely enough, Allah and Ed never delete based on whatever arbitrary standard you’ve just adopted, and believe me, they’ve taken far more abuse for their writings.

Ah well, now that is a separate matter for another time. Let us just say that if not for my nine lives, and planning ahead, I would still be in the corn field.

Trolling. After explicit warning. Removed. Please find your own site, post, or thread where that kind of commentary is welcome. There’s a big wide internet out there waiting for you.

Your intolerance of other views, particularly those you can not successfully respond to, is gaining on Islam's intolerance of other views. You have become a self-parody.

Allen West's brother, Geert Wilders:

Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.

Mohammed’s behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized. Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem. But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time. Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed. Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. If it is good for Islam, it is good. If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille, and Malmo in Sweden . In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim. Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.

Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils. In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims. Non-Muslim women routinely hear, ‘whore, whore.’ Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.

In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin . The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves. Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities. But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values. On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed. The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning. It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination. If they can get Israel , they can get everything.

It would say that we granted a victory, in America, to the un-American doctrine of collective guilt – a doctrine incompatible with the precepts of the American nation, according to which no one can be pre-judged on the basis of religion or other beliefs.

How about the belief in Nazism? Should we be tolerant of that? Should we not "pre-judge" at all on the basis of that belief? How about the belief in men having sex with 9 year old girls? Should we be tolerant of that too? Should we not "pre-judge" at all on the basis of that belief? How about the belief that homosexuality is a crime against Allah that should be punished by death? Should we be tolerant of that too? Should we not "pre-judge" at all on the basis of that belief? How about a "religion" that beleives that all who leave it should be put to death? Should we be tolerant of that too? Should we not "pre-judge" at all on the basis of that belief?

I believe it was Aristotle who said something like, “Tolerance is the last virtue of a dying society”.

It is one thing to tolerate, say, anther’s skin color or sexual preference with other consenting adults, and quite something else to tolerate spreading evil, which is exactly what Islam, which has no tolerance for you except as a useful dhimmi, is. To not know that is either blind ignorance or willful ignorance to the point of moral depravity.

CK MacLeod's misunderstanding and misapplication of basic American principles has reached truly epic proportions.

What would Charles Martel do?

During the depth of the Dark Age, Arab armies crossed over from Spain into France looting, pillaging, raping, murdering and imposing their “religion” on the Christian population.

Then rose up Charles Martel, not even known by most Americans today, but who is the most influential man in the history of what was to become Western Civilization.

If CK MacLeod had been in Charles Martel's place, Western Civilization and enlightenment and liberty and human rights and and technology would never have come about and any of us alive today would be living in a Lord of the Flies world.
