    Well, since I'm not a voter in West Virginia (which may be the reddest state in America), nor are most of the rest of the Democrats in this country, I'm not sure how we 'let that old son of a bitch sit in the US Senate for 40 years. Perhaps you can explain that one to me.

    Of course you Republicans let Strom Thurmond sit in the Senate for just as long, didn't you? At least Byrd apologized for his actions. Thurmond, good Republican that he was, was just as big a racist the day he died as he was when he was campaigning for President as a Dixiecrat against integrating the armed forces and a Federal Lynch law. One of your heroes?

    You a stupid nigga.

    Islam is a religion. There are some people who take it into the political/social realm just like there are people in the US who take their religion deeply into the political/social realm. It doesn't change the fact that Islam is a religion.

    For some perspective: There are roughly two billion Muslims worldwide. Those 10 million extremists (I don't know if that is a valid number, but I'll assume it is for now) are .5% of all Muslims.

    The reddest state in America that kept electing old democrat and KKKer Robert Byrd, for make that 52 years.

    Entry Into Politics

    His allegiance to the KKK, however, did help push Byrd into the political arena. Encouraged by the grand dragon of his KKK branch, Byrd ran on the Democratic ticket for West Virginia's House of Delegates in 1946. During his campaign, Byrd carried his fiddle in his briefcase and played at each stop on his speaking tour. His skill with the instrument helped to get people's attention on the stump, and had a hand in helping him win the election. From that point forward, Byrd would never lose an election. After his re-election to the House of Delegates in 1948, Byrd campaigned, and won, a spot on the State Senate. Two years later, he would win a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Self-educated and well read, Byrd became known for his encyclopedic knowledge of parliamentary procedure, which allowed him to outmaneuvering Republicans with his mastery of the Senate's arcane rules. But he still didn't have a college degree. After winning his seat in the House of Representatives for a second time in 1952, the politician managed to enroll in night courses for law school, despite lacking a bachelor's degree. He was still attending school in 1958, when he defeated the Republican incumbent, W. Chapman Rivercomb, for a spot in the U.S. Senate.


    Strom Thurmond....the DEMOCRAT who had a black daughter by his father's 16 year old family maid. Who later joined the Republican Party, the party of Abe Lincoln and the drivers of the Civil Rights act of 1956....totally opposed by the DEMOCRATS until Lyndon Johnson discovered a way to BUY their VOTES in 1964.

    Strom Thurmond

    The key words in my post being 10,000,000 OR MORE. Who the hell can tell? It's a damn sight more than current KKK people who no longer lynch black people.

    Good luck selling Reagan as a racist. Selling Byrd as a racist is easy as pie.

    Actually he's right on this. Mohammed didn't just found a faith, he founded an Empire and the Government that ruled it.

    Well, then, to bring it back to the OP:

    Sex Slavery in Islam

    ... Sadly, I think the reason the West remains content to stay mum is, as I’ve argued before, that this practice of sexual slavery is undeniably rooted in Islamic scripture; it thus refutes the smiley-face version of Islam peddled by Western governments and commentators.

    At the very beginning of the clip translated by Jenan Moussa, one of the jihadists observes,

    Today is the slave market day where this verse … “Except with their wives and the (captives) who their right hands possess . . . . Today is distribution day, Allah willing.” [Emphasis added.]

    Patently, the jihadist is referring to a “verse” in the Koran. In fact, it could be one of at least two verses, sura 4:24 or sura 33:50.

    I use the widely distributed, copiously annotated version of the Koran – in the original Arabic with English translations – published by the Saudi government. In sura 4:23, the verse just before 4:24, Allah outlines the various categories of women (mothers, daughters, sisters, etc.) with whom Muslim men are forbidden to have sexual relations. Sura 4:24 then states: “Also (prohibited are) women already married except those whom your right hands possess” (emphasis added). There is a footnote at that point, which helpfully explains “Whom your right hands possess: i.e., captives” (italics in original.)

    Sura 4:24 extends to all Muslim men the license given to jihad warriors in sura 33:50:

    Lmao, they didn't live up to them perfectly? Ummmm American, you do realize that when they wrote "We the people", they didn't include women, black people, homeless people or pretty much anyone who wasn't white, male and a land owner yes?
    The reason he doesn't realize that may be because it lacks what Kissinger used to call "the added value of being true." It's one of those easy things we teach schoolchildren that happens to be wrong.
