Certainly Muslim countries are poor and they are the most numerous countries for US aid. Have you ever asked yourself why that is so? Is it the fault of Allah, or just an incredibly poor educational system?
Accusing me of 'bigot-rage' isn't going to win you any debating points. In fact it's probably you who is feeling any rage right now. I only have to point out the facts.
However after having raised these issues I'm prepared to hear anything positive you might have to say about Islam. But at this point it seems to be a bleak and joyless religion, a dead end detour from the road to spirituality and enlightenment..
Did I use the word 'stupid'? I have pointed to several areas where Muslims are rather backward, the evidence is overwhelming, and you are free to counter with some facts of your own. But I see you can't.Facts lol? Kiddo. You blurted out that you think Muslims are stupid and then haven't been able to come up with anything supporting that. It's just vicious, stupid, bigotry and you aren't even trying to hide it.
I should add that Muslims living in non-Muslim countries can do very well. Therefore it seems to me that it is Islam which creates ignorance, and has nothing to do with the race or sex of the individual.
This thread is about the First Amendment free speech issues raised by a series of ads a group of concerned Americans is trying to get displayed on buses in New York. I like them, especially the one that shows the Mufti of Jerusalem conversing with Hitler some time during his long stay in Germany. Maybe they were talking about the 20,000 or so Muslims, mostly Bosnians, that the Mufti helped raise for an SS group that murdered Jews for the Third Reich in Croatia and elsewhere.Heck, what did you think this thread was about?
The purpose of these ads is to alert the American people to the fact Islamic jihadists, whatever nice-sounding organization they may be hiding behind--CAIR is only one example--are intolerant supremacists who want to impose their way of life on the whole world. These Islamists hate Jews and unbelievers generally, and many of them, as the world is now witnessing in Syria and Iraq, are dedicated to unconscionable violence against anyone who resists their barbaric way of life.

I remember that the Islamists' helpmates in this country, who don't like it any better than they do, bent over backwards to protect that effort to spit on the graves of the many people who were murdered at the World Trade Center on 9/11. The Muslim Brotherhood, acting through some of the front groups it has established in the U.S., is behind the so-called "Cordoba Project." They cleverly chose as its public face a man who wears suits and seems Western and moderate, but is an Islamic extremist through and through. Two of these front groups, the ISNA and the IIIT, have supported his propaganda efforts, including the publication here of an English-language version of a book he has written about how to advance Islamist goals in the U.S.
A couple decades ago, some of these same unsavory people were the guiding force behind a similar large Islamic complex called Dar al Hijrah, near Washington, D.C. Although most of the people who attend it are good citizens, which enhances its public image, this complex has been associated with various jihadists. Just one example of these was Anwar al-Awlaki, who was hired as imam there in 2000. Awlaki was at the time mentoring two of the 9/11 hijackers, and when he moved to northern Virginia from San Diego, they moved with him. After 9/11, he went to Yemen to serve as a recruiter for Al Qaeda, which he did until the U.S. killed him with a drone a few years ago. Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood jihadist murderer, used to work at Walter Reed and knew Awlaki from Dar al Hijrah. It was Awlaki, in a series of emails, who assured Hasan that if he killed fellow members of the U.S. Army, Allah would approve of it.
No, I do not. And I have no plans to change that.Do you not know any Muslim people?

I'd say it's the presence of theocracy, abject poverty and piss-poor education systems that are most responsible for these people's lack of progress.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
