Yes, when the truth is that Muslims are evil… right?
Er, no. But the fundies that are doing the fighting and want separation from all non-Muslims or the right to rule them are evil. Just as many of you distinguish Zionism and Jews as two seperate things, I distinguish Islam from Wahhabism.
** We have a saying here which isn’t always correct but in this case very much so: It’s not one persons fault when two people fight.
Depends on the conflict. In the case of Israel-Palestine, it has been two-sided. Same for Russia-Chechnya and Armenia-Aizerbaijan. In the case of the Sudanese Christians and animists, and Christians and Chinese in Malaysia and Indonesia, it’s pretty much all the Muslim extremists’ fault.
And in all those cases, even though both sides were responsible for the fighting, the non-Muslim side has done more to make an effort to stop it. Israel and the PLO signed an agreement which was broken before the ink dried by the Palestinians. India has been willing to offer a referendum on Kashmir. Meanwhile, Pakistan and Muslim militants try to drive out all non-Muslims to create new facts on the ground. They did the same thing in the West Bank from 1949-1967, making it a Jew-free zone. Russia and Chechnya made a peace agreement which was promptly broken by Chechnyan terrorists.
**Islamofascism isn’t a country, unlike Israel, USA and Iran. The question wasn’t which “movement” was threatening peace the most.
In some cases it is represented by a country, such as Saudi Arabia or Iran, or prior to 2001, Afghanistan. Can’t forget Sudan as well.
To re-iterate. The poll and the answers did not place a moral value on the countries. The people answering Israel can not be considered anti-semites based on their answers.
I would agree, although combining that with other things going on over there, it’s hard not to wonder. And putting Israel ahead of North Korea? That’s just perverse.
**Israel is smack in the middle of the most sensitive region of the world and what do they do ? Build Cold War style walls… fire missiles into civilian areas… demolish houses as retaliation… say they are sorry they didn’t kill Arafat before… and then menace to throw him out, then they bomb Syrian territory. Would you like a neighbor like this ?
If Israel was where Mexico is and Mexico was where Israel is, Mexico would be the greatest threat to world peace and Israel would be a good neighbor.
Their actions are in response to constant attack.
