The goalposts move too f*c*ing often
...and I have had E-nough! of all the Muslims out there who keep talking about their peaceful religion. When they manage a tiny insincere condamnation of the barbarians that butcher innocent people, they always find a way of laying the blame anywhere but at the murderers' feet or at Islam's mosque door but always always always at the altar of US- or Jew-bashing.
Peace-loving Muslims (are there really more than a handful out there?), rise up, and tell these 'non-Muslims' (your qualification, not mine) that you will not accept their bloodlust any longer! Rise up and prove to the world that you are human beings with feelings and values and not just a bunch of US- and Jew-haters, that there is something out there more important than your so-called 'humiliation' at the hands of all of us 'infidels'! If you do it together, the Islam-addled barbarians won't be able to assassinate and behead you ALL. Can you stand up for something besides your Mohammed, your Koran? Can you forget the Jews for a few days? Can you? Can you? As long as your voice remains muted and barely audible, I will consider that you are WITH these butchers and certainly not against.
Contrary to you, dissent is something we encourage and cherish, even to the point of having to listen to some incredibly stupid people going on an on. There are days when I wish the professional dissenters would shut up but at least I know that I, too, have the right to speak out when and where I like. (These days, our professional dissenters believe that they have to try to take down their country with the person or policy they are criticizing, but they'll come to regret that one day. They've lost their way, as black sheep often do.)
I'm tired of you all and your refusal to see yourselves in the blood-colored mirror of Islam, sick of your Jew-hating and victim-playing, revolted by your misogyny. How can we expect you to condemn the beheading of an innocent person when so many of you have no feeling or respect for girls and women? When so many of you dream of eliminating the Jewish people (do you even know why?)? When you continue playing the victim rather than admitting that you are not always right and not always just, that your 'holy' 'men' (and I use both terms loosely here) are about as far from holy as you can possibly get?
I'm fed up and angry and soulsick and perhaps I will regret these words. One day. But not today, that's for sure. I'll let you know if it ever happens.Posted by Valerie at May 13, 2004 05:21 PM
