The 'Rat's Ass' Syndrome - An Indictment Of The Arab StreetTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
A suicide bomber struck a crowd of mostly poor Shiites in Baghdad on Tuesday, killing at least 63 people and wounding more than 200 after luring construction workers onto a pickup truck by offering them jobs as they were eating breakfast.And the Arab street yawns - Al Jazeera, and next Friday's mosque clerics, and the Arab street just don't give a rat's ass - because the killer is a Muslim.
On the other hand, if the killer had been a non-Muslim .....
On a related topic, I hope this view is wrong:
Democracies will not win the war because Islam is a force that does not mesh with personal freedoms. There is no Islamic democracy in existence.However, I fear that there are many points here that are more credible than any of us are willing to believe - and that includes Muslims and non-Muslims alike. At the very least, there is a rather large cohort of Muslims to which much of this view applies.
Islamic countries are ruled politically by the Koran, not a parliament-type politic.
Islam's Koran encourages its devotees to slaughter one another in attempts to slaughter non-Muslims; therefore, daily slaughter will continue in Iraq until the last Muslim is dead. That means that non-Muslim democracy troops will never win the war for there will never come the time when there are no extremist Muslims in Iraq.
Islam is regarded by many as a religion; however, because its basic tenets decree the slaughter of non-devotees many non-Muslim theologians conclude Islam is more a cult than a religion among world religions. No other world religion demands that those not devotees be slain; Islam demands that via the Koran.
There is no guarantee in Iraq that the citizenry will abide by parliament's laws, even if they were democracy-based. However, there is a strong contingent even in parliament demanding that laws conform to the Islamic sharia "legal and justice system," not the time-honored, traditional democracy-base. Street gangs rule Iraq more than elected officials. Street gangs align with the Koran's paragraphs demanding slaying non-Muslims, also killing Muslims who may be in the way of slaying non-Muslims.
As to Islamic extremists reaching out to destroy democracies if multinational troops leave Iraq too quickly, Muslim sleeper cells are already housed in democracies worldwide. Sleeper cells don't exist for peace; they exist for Islamic global rule.
