Do you realize how insulting and repulsive the hypothesis that infecting terrorists with pig blood would somehow stop terrorists dead in their
First of all, insulting for the fact that it attacks them on a religious principle. That's so contrary to our American ideals that we may as well
just be as them. How do you think the moderate muslim world will receive this news? That their very religion is being mocked and belittled in such a
manner. Do you think that the average muslim will feel any sympathy toward the West when terrorists hit the next target? Hell no. They will
gravitate to the extreme view that America is part and parcel of the great Zionist conspiracy. Ridiculous.
How many terrorists will this "threat" stop? My god, all it will do is force them to more deadly and effective long range attacks, or stealthier.
I can say for certain, it would strengthen both their numbers,their hate and their resolve for America, and I would have to say I couldn't blame them
for the added fury.
Kill the terrorists. Force the extremist nations to comply with world civilized standards of human rights. But don't mess with their spiritual
beliefs. The belief that pigs blood will prevent their ascension to heaven, whether valid or not, has no value in the core beliefs that cause them
Its this very arrogant supremacist thought that resulted in the easily justified slaughter of native north and south americans for 300 years. That
somehow we are smuggly superior in our civilized religion and culture, and the heathen religions are worthless and can be decimated.
Keep in mind one more thing... Muslims generally have respect for Christianity. They consider Christ a prophet and his teachings accordingly so. If
Christians make a mockery of their spiritual beliefs with the lame pork blood scheme, who do you think will be the next targets? Christians. The
Vatican. The big churches in Jerusalem. Holy Cathedrals in major cities throughout the world where Islam shares the communities.
Tit-for-Tat. Look for Western monuments, icons, sanctified places and shrines to be their targets.
Just as we shouldn't tease a hungry scrapper pit bull by hiding a raw steak behind our backs, I wouldn't think the West should be taunting the
extremist's in this way.. bad bad idea.
