Subject: RE: BS: Bush's *Big Stick* Foriegn Policy...
LH, please explain to me how the attitude of the french speakers of Quebec reflect multi-culturalism when many of them insist that visitors must speak french and pretend to understand not one word of english.

I have experienced this and so have a lot of other people. Yjere are many Canadians who winter in Fla. and I have heard this from them as well including from a friend who is French-Canadian from Cape Breton but who now lives here in Gainesville.

I find your knowledge of the history of radical Islam - or the instance on ignoring it - to be abysmal. The Marine barracks in Lebanon, the USS Cole, just to name two, took place well before GW Bush came on the national scene. Your use of the works stupid and facist and pure ad hominem.

I hate and fear them because they are a very real threat to both me and my family. My wife and son are both Jewish. Just how long do you think they would survive if the Islamofascists took over.

The Jews, incidentally, do not try to convert others. The peoples that they killed in the old testament were enemy tribes, not simply people who refused to convert. In this respect they are unlike both Muslims and Christians.

You may continue to live in your safe and cozy little world of denial if you wish . You may continue to make prejorative statments about how I'm just like them and it's all the fault of the US and Bush and whoever else you can find to blame. That's what really matters to you, isn't it. Who can I blame so I can feel superior.

And it won't change the facts one bit. The radical Islamists are a real danger to anyone who isn't just like them in every respect. If they are willing to kill their co-religionists who are more moderate, what makes you think that you would be spared? Of course they won't bother you because they'll know that you understand how much they were provoked by the horrible American Government.

At this point, what does it matter who is to blame. If it makes you feel any better, blame me. I don't mind. I'm used to it.

BTW, some of you - Ebbie, Don, Little Hawk - really need to look up the concept of satirical comment and sarcasm.

Ebbie, the first recorded genocide that I have read about was the destruction of the city of Jericho by Joshua. The first recorded ATTEMPTED genocide ways of the Egyptians against the Jews. I'm sure that there are other cases that pre-date those. While you are looking up satire and sarcasm, learn some history as well. Read about the Fulani Jihad in sub-Saharan Africa. Then read ALL of my post and see what I said about Christian Fundamentalists.
