Most violence against Muslims is committed by other Muslims in the name of Islam

Most of the violence (but by far not all of it) occurring against Muslims worldwide from Syria to Iraq to Afghanistan to Pakistan to Somalia is being committed by other Muslims and in the name of Islam. Muslims are not unique among religions in doing things like this. It is just that at this time in history they are the most prolific among religions at killing and being killed. The massacre in Rwanda was not merely about ethnicity. It was also Christians killing Christians for religious reasons, as was the massacre in Burundi. Most Tutsi are Catholic and most Hutu … Continue reading Most violence against Muslims is committed by other Muslims in the name of Islam

Religious “morality” strikes again in “liberated” Iraq and innocent little girls will pay the price

There is a new law coming into being in “liberated” Islamist ruled Iraq to legalize the practice of marrying girls as young as 9 years old. This is justified by the Hadiths and the historical record of the actions of Mohammed in marrying Aisha at the age of 6 and consummating the marriage (raping her) at the age of 9. While some scholars debate whether she was 6, 7, 8, 9, 10; this is the justification used for allowing such sexual crimes against children. What do many Muslim men do when issues such as this are brought up? They act … Continue reading Religious “morality” strikes again in “liberated” Iraq and innocent little girls will pay the price

The US should have “imposed” a secular constitution on Iraq (and Afghanistan too)

The USA did the right thing by removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, but we did the wrong thing when we helped create the new constitution and new government and we didn’t even try to “impose” human rights or women’s equality or child protection or LGBT rights or environmental protections or labor laws or secular government on Iraq but we did impose democracy and capitalism. The USA helped draft the new constitution for Iraq (and snuck in a few provisions beneficial to US corporations). It is IMPOSSIBLE to have individual human rights be respected and protected without separation of … Continue reading The US should have “imposed” a secular constitution on Iraq (and Afghanistan too)

The cowardly political correctness of the so-called “postmodernist left” enables the facsism of the religious right worldwide

The religious right wings of Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Mormonism et cetera are enabled by the cowardice and political correctness of the “postmodernist left” which regularly betrays the very causes it claims to support in the pursuit of not offending the religious and cultural beliefs of proud bigots. Continue reading The cowardly political correctness of the so-called “postmodernist left” enables the facsism of the religious right worldwide

Hydrocarbon profiteers and their deadly gamble

Perhaps the deadliest game being played in world power circles today is taking place in the hydrocarbon energy industry worldwide and among hydrocarbon investors and asleep at the wheel supposed government regulators. Anthropomorphic climate change is a done deal, it is already too late to prevent disaster but we can mitigate the damage and help to reduce the amount of time future generation will have to wait for the climate to begin to repair itself. Peak oil is already here, natural gas is close behind, and while there is still plenty of coal to last long enough to destroy the … Continue reading Hydrocarbon profiteers and their deadly gamble

Al Qaeda, the G8 Summit in Genoa, the August 6th PDB, 9/11, and the Benghazi “scandal”

Al Qaeda was caught by several foreign intelligence services (including the Russians) discussing crashing a plane into the hotel that President GW Bush was staying at in Genoa, Italy in July 2001 in order to assassinate him. It was due to this threat, which was taken so seriously by Secret Service that they moved Bush from the hotel to an offshore boat surrounded by anti-aircraft guns, that the Bush Administration requested that the August 6th, 2001 PDB (Presidential Daily Briefing) from the US Intelligence Community be on the subject of Al Qaeda’s plans for attacks within the United States. So … Continue reading Al Qaeda, the G8 Summit in Genoa, the August 6th PDB, 9/11, and the Benghazi “scandal”
