The first time I came on this site, ATS, [I am a Muslim] I confronted a Muslim bigot in his own language. I got real nasty, as I usually do with
bigots because I believe in sometimes fighting fire with fire. Not always, but sometimes.
I of course got all those warnings from the ATS people. I told them that why do they allow blatant racism and bigotry on their site and not expect
people to often respond in kind.
They didn’t answer back.
This bigotry will continue as long as the Islamic problem remains in the mainstream.
America in particular has millions of ignorant bigots particularly people from certain parts of the country that still are fighting the civil war.
Islam, like any religion, has ethnocentric bigots, such as the Taliban and Wahhabis. It’s nothing new.
Years ago in my Islamic community before all this in the 70’s and 80’s we use to argue with the fundamentalist and tell them then they should come
up to the 20th century and stop living in the past. And not take scripture too literal. They wore those robes, ate with their hands, and their woman,
when seen, were all rapped up in those Burqas. In our Islamic community our woman dressed conservative, not hiding their faces. They would criticize
that but we always said that the spirit of the Islamic law says that the woman and men just should dress conservative not the extreme dress like a
Burqa. They didn’t understand that because they like in other religious exoteric circles are literalists. They think God literally created the world
in seven days and has hands and feet and lives on a throne with a beard—real primitive stuff.
After the CIA got a hold of them through the first Afghan war with the Russians, then they became, with the same juvenile mentality they always
had—violent. Brezinski had a lot to do with that.
Now the same types whose only crime was that they ate with their hands and their woman dressed in those ridiculous outfits, and believed in an eternal
hell, now became not only primitively ignorant, but thanks to the CIA, now dangerously violent as well.
The same Wahhabis and Taliban types all think the same though some are not anti-west and violent, such as Saudi Arabia. But the Saudis are just as
religiously backward as the violent “Al Qaeda” and Taliban.
What must be understood is that Islam has liberal Muslims, conservative Muslims, mystical Muslims such as the Sufis, atheistic Muslims and all kinds
and a few ignorant ones such as the Taliban and Wahhabis. But the vast majority of Muslims are decent ordinary people.
The lesson in all of this is that ALL primitive exoteric religions who take scripture literally can be dangerous, that includes Christians, Jews, and
IMO ATS wont likely do anything about the anti-Islamic bigotry
