Next will come 20 questions from someone who pretends he can't understand it.
A message about the past?
You agreed what happened in the past....that's all she talked about...and a bunch of figures.
No matter her motive or background
So you agree she does have a motive.
In another thread you posted today...Russia has "changed from the past"
Change IS possible, but only when YOU say.
Who would know better what was going on there anyway? Someone living through it, or Debbie Schlussel in her air conditioned office thousands of miles away?
You think Gabriel is sweating in a tent in the desert?
She moved to Israel before immigrating in 1989 to the United States.
I doubt she has had to dodge gunfire in weeks.
How do you fight an Ideological Battle?
Then the panelist went on a rant, that involved lots of killing.
An ideological war America must watch, not fight
Washington is getting enthusiastic about an ideological war these days: not between Democrats and Republicans — that’s old news — but rather between Americans and radical Islam. Many of those who spent the past several weeks insisting that we label jihadi terrorists “Islamic” now urge that we fight them on the ideological front. It’s the right arena, but such a struggle would be different from past wars of ideas and could lead to some surprising recommendations for action.
Our image of an ideological war comes from the Cold War, another titanic struggle between opposing worldviews. But the Cold War was so pervasive and intense because each side’s ideas were potentially attractive to anyone, anywhere in the world. Communism and capitalism were both secular ideologies, each trying to seduce the world’s “undecideds” into its camp.
Radical Islam, by contrast, is severely limited in its global appeal. Almost by definition, it is deeply unattractive to all non-Muslims. What Christian would want the forced imposition of sharia law? Even within the Muslim world, radical Islam does not resonate.
"Radical Islam, by contrast, is severely limited in its global appeal"......300 MILLION radicals doesn't sound limited to me (with more being recruited daily).
And, yes, it DOES resonate..... "Even within the Muslim world, radical Islam does not resonate." It resonates loudly into fleeing but not fighting it. THAT chore is left to others willing to do what THEY should have been doing all along before it got out of control......and it doesn't help to have an entire liberal world so politically correct that they are welcomed into their countries without screening. That's what 'open borders' gets you when you are more interested in having more 'workers' enter in order to have more tax money to spend or more eventual voters rather than be concerned with your country's safety and security.
That's a lot.
http://www.muslimpopulation.com/ says there are 2.1 billion muslims. So you (or your untold source) think that 14% of them are "radical muslim"?
http://www.religiouspopulation.com/World/ says the same, and also says that there are slightly less (2.0 billion) christians. How many of them would you call "radical christian"? Or is that an impossible term?
a minimum of 1/4 Muslims in the world are now radicalized so actually my numbers are way less than could be considered to be fact.
Are radical Christians killing, beheading, kidnapping, raping, and destroying historical sites? If so, tell me where they are since you seem to believe that it's 'possible'......
committing terrorists acts simultaneously doesn't mean they aren't radicalized, Kees.... radical Islam Muslims distort the Koran and many just lay in wait for 'their time' to shine in the limelight to do as much damage as possible. Lone wolves or in a pack, it doesn't matter. It only took 19 on 9-11 to physically do it, while thousands cheered them on and encouraged them. It only took two in Boston,...it only took one in Ft. Hood......etc.
There are far more than you wish to believe and they're coming to a town near you if they aren't already there just biding their time. Europe has been accepting them for many years, and I recall an interview in London right after the 9-11 with a few Muslims who are living there as citizens now...some were women being interviewed....and they were happy with what happened here and believe it is 'justified'. Shortly after that London's underground subway was hit....and then a group of Chechnia (sp) radicals killed those school kids inside the school.
I happen to believe that because of ISIS now and how far spread they have become in other areas, you will see more and more of the beheadings and killings than what we've seen recently....especially now that AQ is competing for the attention and wants to be on record as being the 'worst of the worst' again.
