And just because of dumb film. If anything, that makes you look dumber. This has nothing to do with neocolonialism, anti-Islam Western imperial power, being attacked daily, etc. That’s pure b.s.! No, it’s just pure DUMB. And let it be known the law of Cause and Effect is very strict no matter what religion you profess to follow.

Are you kidding me?? The United States, Great Britain, Russia and all corners of the Earth are among some of the nations targeted for attack and invasion by Universal Islam. It is infantile to believe that these Islamists have brought their 1,400 hundred years war to the West because of America’s support of Israel…or that a You Tube video was posted, of a French editorial cartoon of mohammad.

Universal Islamic Jihad PREDATES the birth of the United States and Israel by a 1,000 years, and already has conquered much the Middle East and parts of Europe…and this cancer is spreading.

America and the rest of Western Civilization is falling prey to the same overt and covert strategies and tactics. Terrorism has been only one of those tactics…and hence it is really stupid (yet politically correct) to call it a “War on Terror” when terror is simply a tactic. The “Who” are Muslims who practice “true” Islam and Sharia law and of course the “Why” is Islam as founded by their self proclaimed prophet muhammad!

Are Americans so “in the moment” as to forget all the civilian Muslim dead at the hands of its military all these long years? Get used to the violent reactions because this period is just the beginning of a long war to remove the neocolonialism of the latest anti-Islam Western imperial power. Have a nice day.

Such logic would justify the “necessity” of Nazis in pre-WWII Germany if the bubbling prejudice of that violent minority against any and all influence of Jews in their society were to find an effective and pubic outlet.

Just as every child, immature Islamist fundamentalists must learn and accept the fact that a civilized society must be able and willing to control mobs, whether or not spontaneous. If they do not learn this from wise leaders who love and understand them, they risk a much harsher lesson from nations able to turn sand into glass if and when their citizens and national interests are unreasonably threatened.

Self-restraint is an absolute necessity for responsible self-governance. No exceptions!

And if our chances expect to improve it’s gonna take a lot more than tryin’ to remove the other race or the other whatever from the face of the planet altogether
They call it “The Earth” which is a dumb kinda name but they named it right ’cause we behave the same
We are dumb all over
Dumb all over, yes we are, dumb all over, near and far, dumb all over, black ‘n white, people, we is not wrapped tight
And nerds on the left, nerds on the right
Religious fanatics on the air every night, sayin’ the bible tells the story and makes the details sound real gory about what to do if the geeks over there don’t believe in the book we got over here
You can’t run a race without no feet
And pretty soon there won’t be no street for dummies to jog on or doggies to dog on
Religious fanatics can make it be all gone
I mean it won’t blow up and disappear, it’ll just look ugly for a thousand years
You can’t run a country by a book of religion
Not by a heap or a lump or a smidgeon of foolish rules of ancient date, designed to make you all feel great while you fold, spindle and mutilate those unbelievers from a neighbouring state
To arms, to arms
Hooray! That’s great, two legs ain’t bad
Unless there’s a crate they ship the parts to mama in
For souvenirs: two ears (Get down)
Not his, not hers but what the hey
The good book says, “It’s gotta be that way”
But their book says, “Revenge the crusades”
With whips ‘n chains and hand grenades
Two arms, two arms
Have another and another
Our Cod says, “There ain’t no other”
Our Cod says, “It’s all ok”
Our god says “This is the way”
It says in the book, “Burn and destroy”
And repent and redeem and revenge and deploy and rumble thee forth to the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side
‘Cause they don’t go for what’s in the book and that makes ’em bad
So verily we must choppeth them up and stompeth them down
Or rent a nice French bomb to poof them out of existence while leaving their real estate just where we need it to use again for temples in which to praise our god, ’cause he can really take care of business
And when his humble TV servant with humble white hair and humble glasses and a nice brown suit and maybe a blonde wife who takes phone calls, tells us our god says it’s ok to do this stuff, then we gotta do it
‘Cause if we don’t do it we ain’t “Gwine up to hebbin”
Depending on which book you’re using at the time
Can’t use theirs, it don’t work, it’s all lies, gotta use mine
Ain’t that right?
That’s what they say
Every night, everyday
Hey, we can’t really be dumb if we’re just following god’s orders
Well let’s get serious, god knows what he’s doin’
He wrote this book here and the book says, “He made us all to be just like him”
So, if we’re dumb, then god is dumb and maybe even a little ugly on the side
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side

Human behaviour is often closely linked to the social conditions and moral values. The further down the social ladder people find themselves, the more they are exposed to, and receptive to, social movements based on a certain religions, sects or set of values. Conflicts, war, the gap between rich and poor, the lack of social mobility and personal empowerment are also breeding grounds for a variety of movements that can have a positive as well as a negative effect on social progress.

There is no shortage of examples for the statements above. Just before the civil war broke out in Syria I visited Damascus, Aleppo, Palmira and Homs. I had good many discussions with people in the traditional Souk commercial centres. It was a history lesson that took me back to the period of trading and expansion along Palmyra, the Silk Route to China and Central Asia, as well as the churches and mosques that accommodated Christians and Muslims at different times. Places that are today being emptied of people and destroyed, and where centuries of history are being levelled to the ground.

Instead of developing trade and tourism, the Syrian regime chose to trail the same violence Bashar al-Assad’s father used against its citizens. Perhaps I, like many Syrians I met, believed that the young dictator would prove to be smart and choose to go down into history as the one that opened the Syrian economy and promoted social reforms. I can still remember the smile of two of the Aleppo carpet merchants that removed dollar and euro bills from their pockets and proudly said that the young Assad now allowed them to trade in foreign currency. Around the souks, there was widespread trust that the government would give the long awaited freedom to the class that for centuries constituted the fabric of Syrian secular society: its merchants.
