I didn't mean that you should learn Arabic. I meant that the only 100% accurate way to understand what these people ay is to learn their language.
Well, it kinda sounded like you did mean that..
Actually, I won't blame you if you did. I wish I did have the time, patience and discipline to learn a language so foreign and literally backward to
my trained way of thinking and communicating. The writing format alone would have my mind in pretzels and I really have respect for people who are
multi-lingual well outside their own cultural areas. For what it matters, I've been a bit embarrassed about the technically challenged here for
language since learning that being multi-lingual is by no means unusual outside my nation. Heck..they pay people very good money for it here.
Your input and take is always appreciated though. You're among a few Muslims who will speak up and let that side be heard..however it comes on any
This is really a non issue. You can spend your whole day looking up sick quotes from nutjobs all over the world, dude is just talking a whole
lotta nothing. I cant help but laugh at the fact hes getting a platform to express on here.
Well, obviously by having made the thread, I don't agree. Specifically though, I'd disagree in how the world has seen suggestion, rumor and the
appearance of something be enough for physical and real world action, in that area of the world in particular. Once statements like this have been
made by someone anyone else looks to for guidance...and those statements make it to the wider world audience? They seem to take on a life of their
own. Hence, it seems a reasonable thing to discuss in context .... Which is where I was careful in the OP to distinguish this man from the TOP leaders
in that area of the world.
I certainly hope you didn't post that Rabbi expecting me to get hypocritical and say he's somehow different or it shouldn't be as bad in his case?
In any event, knowing nothing more in context or about that man? I'd say he's every bit as bad ..and perhaps worse in some ways (Given setting,
context and location for his statements) than the Ayatollah this thread was done about.
Personally, I can't stand religious bigotry in any form FROM any side. It's vile, wrong and ugly no matter who it comes from or is directed TO. I
don't mean sharing it in the first place...as your post to share is as valid as mine in that way. I mean the man's statements are repugnant and for
those who might only hear a couple Jews speak anywhere in a given year? Hearing THAT guy as one of them would sure set people's impressions off in
bad directions, wouldn't it?
