Pat Buchanan Is Wrong About Islam by Fred Reed

One of my favorite writers. He always gets it right!

http://www.lewrockwell.com/reed/reed185.html

"...At this writing, the government’s war for oil and AIPAC has more or less solidly metamorphosed, among the rubes at least, into a war against Islam. Men of thunder and portent peddle the notion like starving encyclopedia salesmen. No less a political howitzer than Pat Buchanan says that the mosque should not be built, because of the religious motivation of the Saudis who attacked the towers. His view has been eagerly received by the populace. Now it seems that yahoos at some fourth-grade church in Florida plan to burn a Koran to commemorate 9/11.

Splendid, this. We are telling 1.3 billion Moslems that America is not fighting Al Qaeda, or the Taliban, or Terror. No. It is Islam itself we hate. How very wise. This will make it so much easier to win hearts and minds in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Those security forces that GIs are supposed to be training – the ones with the AKs – they will know that their trainers are their enemies. Curiously, this is just what bin Laden tells them...."

An excellent read.

Question ...

Was is mispelling of Muslims intentional? Am I missing out on an inside joke?

I found this on Wikipedia....

I thought it was interesting....

The ordinary word in English is "Muslim", pronounced /ˈmʊslɪm/ or /ˈmʌzləm/. The word is pronounced [ˈmʊslɪm] in Arabic. It is sometimes transliterated "Moslem", an older, possibly Persian-based spelling. This can be felt to be an abuse of the word.[13] “Submitter” is the English equivalent of the Arabic word “Muslim”.[14]

One preacher and one Church

does not equate into AMERICA nor does it equate into Christianity.

WE all have our misguided individuals .

But the response he's getting does.

With our government and our national media doing the guiding, is it any wonder HUGE numbers of people are misguided? Hopefully few of us here on DP share that Islamophobic mindset, but don't doubt how common it's become today. A lot of people listen to Buchannan and Limbaugh (another opponent of the new mosque) and take their word as gospel.

Another sign of the times: increasing numbers of Americans believe that Obama is a Muslim -- not because of any overt action or expression of belief on his part, but simply because he does not join in the common Islam-bashing of our day.

Sweet little Israel has not only become a carbon copy of Nazi Germany, they're infecting us with their genocidal agenda. I find this particularly ironic, in light of my belief that Israel's Mossad -- not any ragtag band of Arab hijackers -- carried out the 9-11 attack. See: http://how911wasdone.blogspot.com/

Nor does it equate

into Muslim, nor does it equate into Mexican, nor does it equate into ___________________ (fill in the blank).

Exactly the point

Well then

WE agree. Really ! You are so intelligent.

VIVA

Wouldn't you say it's all up to the Muslims to get it right. PERCEPTION .
You all seem to want to speak for the Mulim.
Did they tell you to speak?
You talk like Muslims don't have a brain or something.
You're beginning to talk like a "think tank" that doesn't know which end is UP.

This is an editorial by a writer I like

He is arguing against judging an entire group of people by the actions of a few radicals.... and arguing that going over and KILLING innocent individuals, who happen to be of a certain religion, because a few radicals were in a bastardized version of that religion is not right.

Perhaps I need more coffee today. I don't know who "you all" is to you, or really what you are talking about.

You all is

to whom my statement applies. Those who would answer as you have.
If you preach this man's writings, then it would follow that you agree with my original comment . Howerver, then you or (the writer) injects, that Mulims will retaliate, which is contrary to a thinking mind. The supposed mindset of Muslims, who are predicted by the article, to want to retaliate.

The two do not go together.
Explanation= Muslims vs. Retaliating Mulims.
OR is there no difference?
Therefore the article states, that Mulims are all the same.
Bent on retaliation because of a small group of Americans.

Therefore the article lets me with the image that , Muslims are portrayed as non thinkers and are all bent to retaliation. Now do you see?

It's the SAME game the MSM is playing on the public.They speak and say what Mulims will do and say.

Muslims NEVER appointed MSM nor anyother self proclaimed leader, or "think tank", to speak for them. They can speak for themselves.

Ok....NOW I get it.

But I still love Fred Reed :=).

Have a GREAT weekend!
