Thread Name: BS: Caliphate
Subject: RE: BS: Caliphate
Oh come on, you guys. I started the thread because the CALIPHATE was claiming jurisdiction over all moslems, not because anybody here thinks anything at all about "all" anybody. Y'all are getting sidelined into pettiness about how people are phrasing things. Not that I blame Eliza for getting upset at the casual suggestion that they be treated as they would like to treat others, which is a bad idea whether your spouse is moslem, atheist, or a moon-howling heathen. Or you are. The upset should be civilized versus barbarian, not Don't say that about me and mine. Sorry, Eliza.
But that has nothing to do with the question, which still is, can they, the Caliphate, just *do* that? Apparently the answer is Yes, if they are allowed to?   Kind of like all Jews can consider themselves Israeli if they want to, which I believe they can?
Note that I personally do not consider that Israel or any nation on the planet has a right to exist because some ancient myth says they should... however I do accept the reality that Israel DOES exist. Am I going to have to so the same for the Caliphate?
