Good Read: 'The Enemy We Face'




Interesting. Col. West is a couragous man.

But we still can't think of all muslims that way because so many of them have moderated their beliefs.

Tea Party Politician, former Lt. Col in the US Army, you guys will love this guy

That said, he's wrong on Islam. Listen to this TED from about 5:45 on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7yaDlZfqrc&feature=player_embedded or read this summary: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/At-Tawba_5 or read the verse starting from 9:1 instead of 9:5 http://www.usc.edu/schools/college/crcc/engagement/resources/texts/muslim/quran/009.qmt.html the verse is not a carte blanche kill all the unbelievers

She is being very disingenuous about what happened to the Meccans. The pagans of Mecca allowed mohammad and his followers to peacefully live in their city. The pagans also allowed mohammad and his followers to pray inside to Kaaba where they worshipped the largest idol, that the pagans called Allah.

The Meccans were nice to mohammad and his followers who repaid them by robbing and killing them. This lady is trying to present mohammad and his followers as nice guys because they showed a little mercy in an assault which they initiated against people who weren't doing anything to them.


Sounds like some monks not to long ago.
