    Can of worms opened. I think almost all religious leaders have selfish interests...financial ones top the list.

    Ah. So it is the chronological proximity that is the problem? Had this occurred over, say, a monthlog period it would be no big deal?

    No, you aren't coming up with anything specific to discuss. You are just babbling about random kidnappings in the US. THIS thread isn't about that. Go start one about random kidnappings in the US. THIS thread is about a specific incident that I wanted to talk about, which YOU keep trying to derail.

    Literally you were the one that brought up the subject of kidnappings in the US.

    No, I kept it to the topic. You are insisting that that aspect of the topic cannot be discussed because somehow to point out that this is a media-driven phenomena rather than an actual response that we consistently have messes up the zeitgeist.

    No I wasn't. That was Muhammed. No you haven't. I've asked you to address the topic several times, and you keep talking about kidnappings in the US.

    We just need to stay out of the Dark Continent..........let them rape and kill themselves into extinction instead of giving them endless aid in the hopes that they will improve their lives........

    They survived millenniums without any foreign aid or involvement whatsoever.

    You are correct on that - you merely responded in kind, and then later insisted that no one else do so.

    No you haven't.
    Yes I have. Specifically I have been pointing out that our response to this situation is driven by first social and then common media rather than any kind of desire to oppose or end such occurrences themselves, and demonstrating the truth of that claim by showing how we do not do so even in situations that call for action even more strongly.

    It's still apples to oranges. Sure both are fruits, but one has a peel whereas the other does not. I'll let you guess which is the apple and who is the orange. That was a clue
