When Muslims are strictly kept out of our societies, their worldview and whatever propaganda they have succumbed to becomes effectively academic, from our perspective.

Our “values” should not compel us to harbor such people and accept the inherent risk.

A “month long study” on the insidious affects of ISIS on the local populations.
I think ANY person who was unfortunate enough to life under the Assad, Hussein, Ghaddaffi, dictatorships would be able to “survive” under just about any type of “ruler”.

The key word here being “survive”. Food, shelter, then a job(money). Those are most people’s priorities in a 3rd world country ( and a lot of 1st world countries as well).
“Democracy”, “womens rights”, “debate”, “post secondary education”, all take a distant second place when one doesnt know where the next meal is coming from for themselves or their screaming children.
ISIS taxes, garbage collection, electricity, potable water, are merely to stop the grumbling from an already crushed, demoralized, subservient populace.
Give them 25 years of living under trade embargo’s, bank account seizures, travel bans……All they have spare time for is making babies.
Then wait for the young kids start demanding more…….kinda like Iran. Only without the nukes.

They don’t experience physical abuse because of what they do or do not do. They experience physical abuse because someone decides that they will physically abuse them. Period.

You can’t see your victim blaming, can you?

Until men stand up and take personal responsibility for THEIR actions and STOP doing the WRONG thing – no matter the justification- there will be no peace in the home. It is better to be alone.

This is sad, because I generally favor equal rights. But you can’t give equal rights to some groups, because once they are equal they automatically become dominant. A woman who is equal partners in a marriage is actually the dominant member of the marriage, with the male needing her more than she needs him. That is why the US is filled today with poor single independent women and fatherless children. This is the liberal paradigm. Because left to their own devices women would rather be single and alone than married. When women do get married they often experience physical abuse because they don’t respect their husbands, they act like immature spoiled children, and suffer OCPD. Much more than males, women are control freaks. When men are in charge, they take care of women. When women are in charge, they take care of women. No one cares about men, neither women nor men.
