Comment Re:Trump is Empowering Despots and Dictators (Score 1) 289

ignoring the significance of the world's 3 billion Muslims (which outnumber Christians btw)

Your post is one that I agree with in broad terms, but this is incorrect. In 2012 there were 1.6 billion Muslims to Christianity's 2.2 billion.

It's better to be right, even if it doesn't help your argument.

Part of that article:

There is no dispute that Holocaust denial has been on the rise in Arab countries during the last two decades. This has been illustrated in a disgraceful way by the hero-like reception that Roger Garaudy, the French former communist turned Catholic, turned Muslim, turned Holocaust denier, received in several Arab countries in the late 1990s, after his sentencing by a French court for a Holocaust-denying book.

You should have had a read through it, because it's an apology in no way, shape or form. Now you just look like an idiot. Sorry, I mean you obviously are an idiot, it's just now you've outed yourself.

Still, at least you didn't log in.

Agreed. What the "alt-right" and other associated dickheads fail to realise is that going after moderate muslims is precisely what the likes of IS want to see happen. They like to see things like the veil ban in France. Anything that adds to their propaganda.

The best thing to do is to ignore them in terms of public attention, and quietly go after them with law enforcement. Being politicised and seen as a boogey man is again precisely what they are after.

This is basically another way of saying that the shrill, panicky anti-muslim sentiment is actually just... dumb. Stupid as fuck.

Then you have the likes of Trump, Sarkozy etc - bigging them up and talking endlessly about how scary they are. They are bigger allies of IS than they realise.
