Thank you had my wife and 14 year old son watch when they asked what this "whole middle east thing" was about. I find it odd that my son hasn't even heard about this in school.
Those of us who are emotionally or intellectually immature won't be willing to depart from a position we initially held to.
Many muslims denounce that as well, as I'm sure you're aware of.
The cartoon speaks for itself.
Ok, watched the video. No need to post it every time you want to engage in conversation with me.
I just want to know what you mean by extremist. Because to ignore this - to not see how dangerously extreme it is, begs the question, what are your principles? and why don't you honor them?
To restate your argument again and again and to vehemently repeate your opinion of what you believe are the reasons for the ongoing conflict and escalation of violence, seems to be a viable way for you to engage in conversation.
I'm well aware of the dangers of extremisim and i can find them in any shape or form in all ideologies based on fear, hate and a false sense of superiority, religion is not necessary and is definitely not the cause for extreme views.
You had to put a lot of effort into miscontrue what i said, because i clearly stated 'both sides'. Your attempt to school me on the dangers of Islamisim and your narrative "how the arabs can't be trusted" is a clear example for what i meant. You represent the other side.

A very simple propaganda piece aimed at an uninformed audience, which is an abundant one in the USA. Just like the conflict itself, its a time proven distortion of facts, points of view and history. It preys on the weak foundation of knowledge Americans have about the conflict to manipulate an unrealistic contemporary pt of view
