Most of us aren't terribly worried about "who speaks for the muslims".

When they start treating their children and women something more like a human rather than property, maybe we'll give a crap.

The muzzies are stuck in the 6th century. Thats why they should stay OUT of Western parts of the world. They are incompatible.

these muzzie apologist's are akin to "Tokyo Rose" and "Axis Annie".

Spread propaganda and rot the minds of the youth...IF they are stupid enough to listen.

Shes all great about Gallup. Great.

Note that he mentions democracy. He was about information mining imho. We are NOT a democracy and were NEVER intended to be one.

for the THOUSANDTH TIME...

all together...

WE ARE A REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC. We are not mob rule.

In Dallas last year, a local station did "_____ in Dallas". Black, Women, Mexican/Latino, Gay, Catholic, and (you guessed it) MUSLIM in Dallas.

In varying degrees, they showed up for some interesting shows. The Catholics were a bit lack luster but plenty of Catholic folks called in and made it a fairly good show.

Mussies?

They were actively recruited where no one else had been. "Dignitaries" were sent to local mosques. Hell, I thing the POS's at CAIR were even contacted.

nothing.

Muzzies have been called on to march against muslim sponsored terrorism with groups in dallas.

No one comes.

The muzzies do not want to be accepted. They want to be in control.

I get along with most any other religion (asides from groups like Church of Satan ect.). Hindu's, Jews, Shinto, Pagan, Christian (except the weird ones), Buddhists, whatever. They don't push their crap at the point of a sword.

Mussies I have no tolerance for. I wouldn't mind if aliens abducted their butts over night.

I figure the best bet is for them to go to their little sand box's and leave us alone. They wont do this so we have issues.

I'll stop right here before I get really rolling.

My sound doesn't work. But I thought this is interesting.


Counterintuitive Discoveries in Who Speaks for Islam?

Who speaks for the West?
Muslims around the world do not see the West as monolithic. They criticize or celebrate countries based on their politics, not based on their culture or religion.

Dream jobs
When asked to describe their dreams for the future, Muslims don't mention fighting in a jihad, but rather getting a better job.

Radical rejection
Muslims and Americans are equally likely to reject attacks on civilians as morally unjustified.

Religious mainstream
Those who condone acts of terrorism are a minority and are no more likely to be religious than the rest of the population.

Admiration of the West
What Muslims around the world say they most admire about the West is its technology and its democracy -- the same two top responses given by Americans when asked the same question.

Critique of the West
What Muslims around the world say they least admire about the West is its perceived moral decay and breakdown of traditional values -- the same responses given by Americans when posed the same question.

Gender justice
Muslim women want equal rights and religion in their societies.

You are not mob rule, yet you want people to band together and kick Muslims out. Interesting.

Well, that was interesting. Except for the first video which is just an explanation of methodology.

I think one thing Muslims need to understand about America is that our democracy is as phony as the one we are trying to force them into having. So we really aren't singling them out. Its just that Americans are immersed in the illusion of freedom, and the illusion of democracy. So we cant see for ourselves the phoniness of what we are imposing on other nations.

Which Group of muslims are you talking about? The Radical , non-radical?

I think the victims of 911 speak for the radical ones.

I think Mr. Obama Speaks for the non-radical.

Any questions?

watch the videos. some of the best put together videos that i've seen in terms of research. they're really not that long and it would be helpful. it is the common people that are being referred to. i.e. the majority... from around the world.

Good luck pushing an educational thread.


They really are good videos though, although you can skip the first one without missing anything if you are short on time. It bascially just goes over methodology.
