Holocaust Denial Being Indoctrinated In California Schools
(Click Each To Enlarge)
They are going to revise this disgusting assignment. I predict they will just replace "holocaust" with "9/11," "Nazis" with "freedom fighters," and "Jews" with "little Eichmanns."
The Rialto school district planned to revise an eighth-grade assignment that raised red flags by asking students to consider arguments about whether the Holocaust - the systematic killing by the Nazis of some 6 million Jews and millions of others - was not an "actual event" but instead a "propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain."
In a statement released Monday, a spokeswoman for the Rialto Unified School District said an academic team was meeting to revise the assignment.
I am so relieved that District Superintendent Mohammad Z. Islam had nothing nefarious in mind when his district approved this assignment. /s
This is chilling. To say there was nothing insidious about this assignment designed to plant seeds of doubt in the minds of children is ridiculous. I'm not suggesting Mr. Islam is solely responsible for this assignment. But after what we've seen happen in the UK, we should, at minimum, take a critical look at the possibility of it happening here.

Pro-Choicers Chant "Hail Satan"
This reminds me of something C.S. Lewis wrote in his final book from the Narnia series which I recently listened to on CD with my kids on the way back from California earlier this week.
In the book, the antagonists try to convince the beings of Narnia and their enemies from Kalormen that Narnnia's protector, Aslan, and Kalormen's god, Tash, is really one and the same thing -- Tashlan, they begin calling this new hybrid god. This despite the fact that Aslan gave his own life to save his people, while Tash requires the lives of his in the form of periodic human sacrifices.
But what this reminds me of from the book is that those making the argument that Aslan and Tash were really just different names for the same thing didn't believe in either of them. They were atheists, who were simply using a sophisticated argument about the unity of religious ideas in order to gain political power.
Are these people chanting "hail satan" really believers in Beelzebub? Of course not. They are trying to be ironical here.
In the book, the god Tash actually does appear and he begins to devour those who had invoked his name even though they did not believe in the being in who's name they were acting.
I very much doubt that this group of pro-choicers believes that unseen dark forces personified as the Prince of Darkness really exists any more than Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
But what if they're wrong?
Acting as if you worship Satan is not so far removed from actually worshiping him as you might think. Because in the end it is our actions that define us. If you act in an evil manner, they you have become the very thing which you deny exists: the personification of evil.
UPDATE By DMartyr: The Satanists are distancing themselves from these loony libs. Your ideology really has to be bad if Satan worshippers call you "diabolical"!

CAIR Attacks Professor For Stating Facts
Uncomfortable facts, very uncomfortable facts. The kind of facts that CAIR calls "hate" and bigotry"
I guess that when Matusitz states that in the Middle East that Osama bin-Laden is treated like a rock star from Mars that's some sort of insane misrepresentation based on Islamophobia and bigotry?
No, no it isn't. But don't ever expect to hear CAIR speak out against or even mention that.

Eleven Year Old Boy Suspended For Daydreaming of Saving His Class
I ask you, even you Democrats and heel-dug Obama defenders who are committed to the man because you invested your trust and franchise in him, either because you bought his bromides and bullshit, or because Rush Limbaugh’s talk about Obama phones reeked of racism, and you refused to be part of that (though evidently, the institutionalized racialism in the Civil Rights Division and at the Justice Department wasn’t a factor in your decision making): is this the country you imagined you lived in?Really what about the glue gun or maybe rivet or grease gun in shop class?The father of a middle schooler in Calvert County, Md. says his 11-year-old son was suspended for 10 days for merely talking about guns on the bus ride home.
Bruce Henkelman of Huntingtown says his son, a sixth grader at Northern Middle School in Owings, was talking with friends about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre when the bus driver hauled him back to school to be questioned by the principal, Darrel Prioleau.
“The principal told me that with what happened at Sandy Hook if you say the word ‘gun’ in my school you are going to get suspended for 10 days,” Henkelman said in an interview with WMAL.com.
So what did the boy say? According to his father, he neither threatened nor bullied anyone.
“He said, I wish I had a gun to protect everyone. He wanted to defeat the bad guys. That’s the context of what he said,” Henkelman said. “He wanted to be the hero.”
We've become a politically correct parody of a once great nation.
American Spring! The Vast Right Wing Republican Insurgency
We now know that the White House has used the Internal Revenue Service as a weapon against “enemy” political groups, in a naked example of tyranny so extreme that when the IRS Inspector investigated, he found it worse than even Richard Nixon’s attempted abuses of the system. He call the targeted political terror campaign, “unprecedented.” It is an abuse of power never before seen in our nation’s history.Read the rest.
News is confirmed that the Environmental Protection Agency was also used to target activist groups.
Attorney General Eric Holder personally authorized using the Espionage Act—which has been used to put spies to death—against members of the press, and then lied about it in Congressional testimony.
We have seen a perfect storm of abuses at the hand of the Obama Administration, and the government itself has been exposed as rotten to the core.
That changes scenario immensely.
When I wrote WYSIR, I could never predicted that the government would self-destruct in living color before a revolt against tyranny ever began. Incredibly, the federal leviathan became so bold in it’s overt corruption that it has self-destructed, without any external help, before the first shot has been fired in anger.

Boobies Against Islamists
BERLIN: Bare-breasted activists staged rallies in front of mosques and Tunisian embassies across Europe Thursday against what they called an Islamist crackdown on Arab women's rights.Probably NSFW in boobie fearing America.

"And we'll fight against them. And our boobs will be stronger than their stones."
The rallies targeted in particular the case of a Tunisian activist calling herself Amina Tyler who sparked a scandal last month when she posted pictures of herself online with the words "My body belongs to me" and "Fuck your morals" emblazoned across her naked breasts.

Not So Much Hate Post (Bumped & Updated)
UPDATE: Turns out, it may not have been any sort of "hate crime" at all. An anonymous caller (probably frightened of retaliation from the Religion of Peace™) said he left the spoiled bacon for stray animals.
As my dog would say, "IT'S BACON!"
According to the NYPD, this:
is a hate crime if left laying around on the ground.
Always playing the victim, Muslim leaders are equating this "hate crime" with placing burning crosses on a black person's lawn or painting swastikas on a Synagogue:
Police computer experts are trying to locate the identity of that person, whom Muslim organizers of the prayer service said was clearly trying to taunt Muslims through intimidation, like other symbols disturbing to African-Americans or Jews.
“Whether burning crosses or swastikas, a small minority are trying to threaten other people,” said Muneer Awad, executive director of the New York chapter of the Council on Islamic Relations.
Who knew the bacon in my fridge invoked imagery akin to lynchings and the holocaust?

Guns and Chick-fil-A a Matter of Trust
Peter Ingemi hit the nail on the head with this:
I have heard a lot of people on the left self righteously complain that conservatives are unwilling to agree to “common sense gun control” that we are unreasonable fanatics who would oppose restrictions on the ownership of Sherman Tanks.
Most of all; we are totally wrong to believe that the left is after our guns just because of the proposed assault weapon ban.
Why would we have such a belief, how can the folks on the right even think we on the left are after their guns, all their guns?
The answer: Chick-Fil-A
Twenty years ago there was nobody NOBODY nationally who was pushing the idea of gay marriage. If Bill Clinton had come out for Gay Marriage in 1992 he would have lost 49 states.

Islamic Terrorist Calls for Murder of German Anti Sharia Group Members for Insulting Islam
"Far right" in this story and other mainstream media stories means opposition to Islamization and Sharia. "Islamist calls for murder of German far-right party: media," from Expatica, May 20 (thanks to David):The terrorist in question is Abū Ibrāhīm al-’Almānī’. Here is a copy of the threat uploaded to Youtube here by Jundullah Studio.A German Islamist is calling for the murder of members of a far-right party that regularly provokes ultra-conservative Muslims using cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, a newspaper reported.
According to an article due to appear Monday in the Tageszeitung daily, an Islamist from Bonn in western Germany has appeared in a video on an Islamic forum in which he encouraged "the killing of all activists from the Pro NRW party".
Members of the small extreme-right political party held a campaign event using anti-Islamic caricatures ahead of an election in Germany's most populous state North Rhine-Westphalia on May 13.
In his appeal, the Islamist urged the collection of personal information on Pro NRW members, including their home addresses and work schedules, with the goal of attacking them.

Via Citizen Journalist, Rebel Pundit, at BigG: At May Day Chicago, Mainstream Left No Longer Distanced from Radicals[Read it all]
Not too many people remember May Day last year. Of course, a few videos and images made their way onto the cables before the evening news that Sunday. But as I was going through footage of the Haymarket Riot Reenactment in Chicago that I covered earlier that day, news broke of a big announcement coming from the White House and nobody knew what it was. About 15 minutes later, hundreds of college kids were chanting “USA, USA,” outside the White House, celebrating the death of Osama Bin Laden.
Subsequently, there was zero coverage of May Day[Continue reading to understand the video below]

Rabbi Boteach Blasts Savages Anti-Christian Rant: Westboro Of The Left..
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a popular Orthodox rabbi famous for his writings on sex and popular culture, has blasted White House-endorsed sex columnist Dan Savage for his attack on the Bible and Christianity in front of an audience of high school students, comparing Savage's remarks to the hateful bigotry of the Westboro Baptist Church.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Rabbi Boteach said:As an orthodox Rabbi with a gay orthodox Jewish brother, I have endeavored mightily to reconcile the dictates of my faith with the most human, loving, and respectful approach to homosexuality. I have counseled hundreds of gay men and women of faith who seek to find their place in G-d's love amid a gay lifestyle. Such efforts at reconciliation are undone by the gratuitous hate-filled bigotry of people like Dan Savage whose response to prejudice against gays is to offer insulting and degrading prejudices against religion.[More..[

Dan Savage Bullies Christian HS Students Curses Bible Talks About his Parter's Package
As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy asses.”More here and here.
The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”
Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.
Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing.
Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California, was among several thousand people in the audience. He said they thought the speech was one thing – but it turned into something else.
“I thought this would be about anti-bullying,” Tuttle told Fox news. “It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”
I find it odd that he's asked to speak about bullying issues. His advocacy for gay issues and his open hostility towards conservatives, republicans and people of all faiths is well known and easily available on his Wiki page.
Carl Romanelli should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there's nothing left but the ropeAnd...
I wish the Republicans were all fucking dead..But that's how the leftist education clique works. They will excuse hatred and bullying so long as its against "the other".
Claims of ignorance about Dan Savages past by these educators are almost laughable. He's even been invited into Obama's white house and praised by the administration for his "work". But they didn't know he was an asshole? Right.

Possible Motive in Shaima Alawadi Murder
I read this on Huffington Post yesterday. Shaima Alawadi's daughter Fatima was involved in an incident where she jumped out of her mom's car after being caught with a boy. Its also known that Fatima wanted to marry this boy who turns out to be an Iraqi Chaldean Christian against the wishes of her family who had arranged for her to marry someone else.
The person who witnessed the incident and called police also wrote an online posting about it on a website before Shaima Alawadi was murdered.
Huffpo: When college student Enrique Cervantes wrote an essay about seeing two people having sex in a car in front of his house, he never expected that it might shed light on a murder investigation.This sheds a whole new light on possible motive and highlights the folly of allowing Shaima's husband to leave the country for Iraq. Kassim Alhimidi took his son and his daughter Fatima with him to Iraq. He told CAIR he would return within two weeks of his wife's funeral. Its already been more than two weeks and no Kassim.
However, that story -- submitted as part of an oral history of El Cajon, a city just east of San Diego -- may help explain the murder of Iraqi refugee Shaima Alawadi, and offer a possible motive for her family members.
A few months after the vehicle incident and two months prior to Alawadi's death, Cervantes wrote about seeing Alhimidi in the car for SoSayWeAll.com, a San Diego-based nonprofit that is currently collecting "a people's history of East San Diego County."
Cervantes said he saw two people having sex in front of his house in the middle of the day and called the police.
Before police arrived, Cervantes went to the car to warn them and saw a teenage girl in a hijab with a man who looked to be in his early 20s. His piece describes the encounter:The guy saw me coming and adjusted his pants. The girl pulled a blanket over her legs and smiled, her cheeks blossoming into red. What the f***, I almost said out loud. She was wearing one of those things on her head that Muslims wear. It was light purple; it looked nice on her skin. Her skin was brown as mine. It looked nice with that shade of purple, like an Egyptian princess.
I for one doubt he will return of his own free will and its likely that his story will play sympathetically to the Iraqis should he be indicted. Getting extradition will be a challenge.
Also Fatima Alawadi is in danger. ts likely that Kassim will stand to benefit financially from the arranged marriage of 17 year old Fatima, who is quickly approaching the age of consent, wants to marry the Chaldean Christian, Yacub.
Besides forced marriage against her will its also possible that Fatima's virginity or lack thereof could become an issue. We already know there may have already been one honor killing in the family, no?
The previous story of a hate crime against Muslims because of a note at the crime scene that was parroted by CAIR and many media outlets gave cover for Hassim to leave the country.
Where is CAIR and all those media outlets now? They are suddenly silent.

Advocating Murder of Every Single Jew on Earth Not Anti-Israel Enough For Media Matters' Eric Boehlert
Senior Fellow Eric Boehlert, one of the faces of the organization, has a dicey record when it comes to Israel and the Jews. On September 11, 2001, he wrote a piece for Salon.com defending American Muslims from the supposed anti-Muslim hysteria brewing. In that piece, he recounted a Muslim rally in Paterson, New Jersey:Hey the Koran says that every single Jew must die,. If you're not cool with that you're just a bigoted genocide-o-phobe."We won't rest until all the Jews are dead," said a burly young man. "Shame on America," said another bitter-faced youth. "For helping Israel to kill Palestinians," said a third.In the wake of the WTC attacks, however, those brash sentiments were muted.
“We won’t rest until all the Jews are dead” is not a “brash sentiment.” It is open genocidal anti-Semitism. But not to Eric Boehlert, apparently.

Low Hanging Fruit
Progressives know that the most fertile fields for subversion lie within the malleable minds of children:
With his blonde pigtails and purple tutu, Zach Avery, now five, has been living as a girl for more than a year - after he first refused to live as a boy when he turned three.
Little Zach was just three when he began refusing to live as a boy, instead choosing to wear pink dresses and ribbons in his long, blonde hair - because he has Gender Identity Disorder (GID).
And the primary school he attends in Essex has even changed the kids' toilets to gender-neutral Unisex in support of Zach since his official diagnosis last year, aged four...
...[when] He became obsessed with the girly kids' TV character Dora the Explorer and started dressing in girls clothing.
Take a pair of chuckle-headed, permissive parents, mix them with the sort of nutbags who are often attracted to careers in psychology, shake in some angst and cultural guilt, and three is now the age of consent in the UK. And Bob's your uncle. Or aunt, as the case may be.
Of course the comments section of this story is chock full of free love homosexuals desperately proclaiming the normality of this situation, and, by extension, their own.
I blame Dora the Explorer. The rotten little bi-atch.

Kos Kid Has Epiphany About Islam and Terrorism
Jawa Report officially welcomes former DailyKos blogger Eric Allen Bell to the Zionist Internet Cabal:
(Jihad Watch)I watched the documentary, "Islam: What the West Needs to Know" and wanted so badly to prove wrong what I had seen and heard - but I could not. This was not only humbling but it has caused me to really rethink and rethink the possibility that perhaps the truth is not politically correct.After Bell posted in this issue at DailyKos he was banned, fired for Islamophobia.
... as I watch with great disappointment the developments that have followed the so-called "Arab Spring" I am very, very concerned. Islamism is clearly on the rise, they have weapons, they are not rational and I am concerned.

Sydney Spies Yearbook Photo Controversy
18-year-old Sydney Spies wants a future in modeling, and she figured she would make that clear with her senior picture in her high school yearbook.
But the Durango, Colo., prospective graduate found herself embroiled in controversy when her school’s yearbook editors put the kibosh on running a photo of Sydney posing provocatively in a black shawl and short yellow skirt that exposed plenty of skin.
It seems the efforts to ban this girl's slutty pics have backfired on the yearbook staff, making Sydney famous overnight. I bet that really burns their asses.

This is the way Christians get things done, and probably the reason so many radicals on the left feel justified in attacking Christians.
On December 13th, Rabbi Joshua Hammerman wrote an article for The Jewish Week. In the article, Hammerman wrote that if Tim Tebow led his team to winning the Super Bowl, Tebow's faithful would be embolden and start "burning mosques" and "bashing gays."
Here is the entire paragraph:
If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.
But pressure continued to mount. Now the whole article has been completely scrubbed. You can still read the cache version HERE.
In a way, it is unfortunate the article has disappeared, though not entirely, thanks to Google cache. It was a good illustration of religious intolerance and the double standard Christians face in today's society. Imagine, for a second, had someone suggested that, say (just off the top of my head), Muslim faithful would start burning churches and bashing non-Muslims, "emboldened" by some sort of event... like Friday prayers, or some Infidel threatening to burn a Quran or... wait... Okay, not a good comparison. Burning churches and bashing Christians is a recreational sport in some parts of the world.
But you get the idea: Christian bashing is fine, because Christians - even the most radical - won't respond with violence. But never, NEVER criticize a certain other religion of violence, even truthfully and factually. To do so, would be racist and a hate crime, not to mention, extremely provocative.

Cheesehead U. Admin All Wee-wee'd Up Over Sci-Fi Poster
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 26, 2011—A professor has been censored twice, reported to the "threat assessment team," and threatened with criminal charges because of satirical postings on his office door. Campus police at the University of Wisconsin–Stout (UWS) censored theater professor James Miller's poster depicting a quotation from actor Nathan Fillion's character in the television series Firefly, and the police chief threatened Miller with criminal charges for disorderly conduct. After UWS censored his second poster, which stated, "Warning: Fascism," Miller came to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for help.One suspects that the virulent reaction from UWS is based more upon the underlying pro-capitalist, anti-big government theme of the excellent but, alas, short-lived, series Firefly.

Congressional Black Caucus' Dangerous Violent Rhetoric: Declares 'War' on Racist Tea Party
Black Democrats want blacks to stay on the 21st century plantation
Allen West told substitute host Laura Ingraham, “you have this 21st century plantation that has been out there, when the democrat party has forever taken the black vote for granted.”Needless to say, West isn't a favorite member of the caucus.
Black Democrats are merely plantation overseers, West said.
“You have established certain black leaders who are nothing more than the overseers of that plantation, and now the people on that plantation are upset, because they have been disregarded, disrespected and their concerns are not cared about,” West said

You Worry Me.
This is an email circulating, supposedly by an American Airlines pilot. However, the name attributed, Captain John Maniscalco, cannot be confirmed. It seems to have origins that pre-date the email. It was published earlier by Gazette.net, under the author Kevin Daly.
Regardless of the origin, it is still worth a read.
(Hat Tip: IQ al Rassooli)
An open letter to my Arab-Muslim neighbors:
You worry me. I wish you didn't.
I wish when I walked down the streets of this country that I love, that your color and culture still blended with the beautiful human landscape we enjoy in this country. But you don't blend anymore. I notice you, and it worries me.
I notice you because I can't help it anymore. People from your homelands, and professing to be Muslims, have been attacking and killing my fellow citizens and our friends for more than 20 years now. I don't fully understand their grievances and hate but I know nothing can justify the inhumanity of their attacks.
On Sept. 11 , 19 Arab-Muslims hijacked four jetliners in my country. They cut the throats of women in front of children and brutally stabbed to death others. They took control of those planes and crashed them into buildings killing thousands of proud fathers, loving sons, wise grandparents, elegant daughters, best friends, favorite coaches, fearless public servants and children's mothers.
So I notice you now.
I don't want to be worried. I don't want to be consumed by the same rage and hate and prejudice that has destroyed the soul of these terrorists. But I need your help.
As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to differentiate between you. How do I differentiate between the true Arab-Muslim-Americans and the Arab-Muslims in our communities who are attending our schools, shopping in our stores, enjoying our parks, accepting fresh baked cookies from a thoughtful neighbor, and sending their children out to play with ours while they plot the next attack that will slaughter those very same good neighbors and children?
The answer to my own question is that it is past the time for me to try to determine this. The events of Sept. 11th changed the answer. It is time for every Arab-Muslim in this country to determine it for me.
I want to know, I demand to know, if you love America. Do you pledge allegiance to its flag? Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation, that He will protect and prosper it? Are you thankful for the freedom that only this country affords? A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots? Are you willing to preserve this freedom with the spilling of your own blood? Do you love America? And if this is your commitment, then I need you to start letting me know about it.
Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions you are taking as a community and religion to protect the United States of America. Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the "innocent" (I worry who you regard as "innocent") and condemnation of "unprovoked" attacks (I worry what is "unprovoked" to you). I am not interested in anymore sympathy, I am interested only in action. What will you do for America-- the country-- at this time of crisis, at this time of war?
I want to see Arab-Muslims waiving the flag in the streets. I want to hear you chanting "Allah Bless America." I want to see Arab-Muslim young men enlisting in the military. I want to see a commitment of money and time and emotion to the victims of this butchering and to this nation as a whole.
The FBI has a list of over 400 people they want to talk to regarding the WTC attack. Many of these people live and socialize in Muslim communities. You know them. You know where they are. Deliver them up, now.
But I have seen little even approaching this sort of action.
Instead I have seen an already closed and secretive community close tighter. You have disappeared from the streets. You have posted armed security guards at your facilities. You have threatened lawsuits. You have screamed for protection from reprisal.
The few Arab-Muslim representatives that have appeared on the media are defensive and equivocating. They seem more concerned with making sure the U.S. prove who is responsible before they act, and protecting their people from any violence directed toward them, here in the U.S. and abroad.
If the true teachings of Islam proclaim tolerance and peace and love of all people, then I want chapter and verse from the Koran and statements from popular Muslim leaders to back it up.
Because even if the teachings in the Koran are good and pure and true, it matters little if large numbers of current Islamic practitioners interpret the teachings of Mohammed incorrectly and adhere to a degenerative form of the religion.
I want to know where every Arab-Muslim in this country stands and I think it is within my right and the right of every true citizen of this country to demand it. A right paid for by the blood of thousands of my brothers and sisters.
I am pleading with you to let me know. I want you here; as my brother, my neighbor, my friend, as a fellow American. But there can be no "gray" areas or ambivalence regarding your allegiance and it is up to you to show me where you stand.
Until then...you worry me.

Geert Wilders' Warning To America
On May 12, 2011, Geert Wilders addressed the Cornerstone Church in Nashville, Tennessee.
Dear friends from Tennessee. I am very happy to be in your midst today. I am happy and proud to be in this impressive church.
My friends, I am here to speak words of truth and freedom.
Do you know why America is in a better state than Europe? Because you enjoy more freedom than Europeans.
And do you know why Americans enjoy more freedom than Europeans? Because you are still allowed to tell the truth.

Bill Maher Finally 'Gets' It
I don't know who the bald-headed idiot is, but he goes through great lengths to distinguish between 'Muslims in the west' and 'Muslims in a place like Afghanistan' as though that in some way exonerates Islam to a certain degree.
Let me ask the Jawa readers - which Muslims do you think more accurately represent true Islam as Muhammad taught it - Muslims in the west who have always lived in a free society and learned about Islam through nefarious clerics and ignorant converts OR Middle Eastern (the birthplace of Islam) Muslims, who have known Islam all their lives and have grown up with families who have always been Muslim, going back generation after generation?
So, when Western Muslims react reasonably and Middle Eastern Muslims react violently, which do you think is more accurately representing Islamic values?
