Ooh-Aah2 Obit: More Muslim intolerance? (589* d) RE: Obit: More Muslim intolerence? 21 Nov 04


Do you know what happened to Pauline Hanson? She narrowly missed out on a prison term (damn) and was utterly crushed at the last federal election. I can't answer for America, which seems to be going down the right-wing tube with a vengeance, but it certainly won't happen in Australia or Britain. May I remind you just how atrocious the actions of the Nazis were? People who use windy hyperbole to compare modern right-wingers (I don't mean the extreme fringe) to the deaths of...   um ... what was it, around 40 million people I believe, are venturing in the absurd. To compare people like myself, a liberal defending liberal values against the intolerance of extreme Islam, is to be not only ridiculous but to miss the point entirely.

Carol, I'm sick to death of your absurd hysteria, particularly by your use of the word bigot, which has become a parrot-cry to replace your arguments, which are almost as repeditive. I am confident that a person who reads through this thread will see that I have addressed the main points of your latest howl not once but several times. A final bit of food for thought for you: on the news today I heard that there is a Sikh festival on today in Pakistan. One thousand two hundred police will be deployed to prevent the pilgrims from being physically attacked by mobs. Perhaps the Sikhs should try making a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia or some other Middle-Eastern country where they would no doubt be greeted with kind smiles!
I suppose you realise that as a woman you would not be allowed to have this kind of argument in a strict Islamic country? You don't just need to do some reasearch, you need to have the scales removed from your eyes.
