    It's disgusting in any event, but what else would you expect from zealots?
    "Their life for Aiur?" (starcraft humor)


    but srsly.



    Yeah, it seems that zealots give everyone a bad name these days. If I were the entirety of Islam, and I'm not, I'd get a leash on those dogs before one of em gets out and mauls the wrong person.

    I love metaphor.

    Small city, Very vulnerable to terrorist attacks. We are multi-racial with a sizable muslim population (20%) but there is racial harmony. We been badly affected by the US financial meltdown. Our economy is export driven - mainly to USA and Europe. The challenge is to re-engineer the economy so that when USA catches cold we don't sneeze.

    Could be worse. You could be Saudi Arabia and IMPORT everything.


    I am concerned though...20% Muslim population....I've heard that's minimum odds that any given radical fundamentalist Muslim likes

    The woes of being a decentralized faith. They're like Protestants, in that there's simply no central authority by which impose order, and every Imam is free to teach Islam as he pleases with little interference.

    What I wouldn't give to purge my own faith of the specter of Neo-Nazism. Unfortunately, the price of freedom includes having to sit back and watch as people abuse it in the most disgusting ways...
