Tsunamis and Politics

I find it amazing that in the face of one of the worst disasters in modern history, people will take the opportunity to play politics.

The UN is just going nuts. One guy says the US is stingy, another says we are messing things up with our own coalition. WAPO says Bush is both insensitive and freaky and all the left wing blogs are saying even worse.

My previous post caused a little confusion, so I'll try to explain my point.

In America, there are American Muslims. People that were born and raised here. People that go to Mosque faithfully, believe in God and believe in charitable works. These are not ordinary Muslims. They are far outside the mainstream. They have been "Westernized." They are part of the American fabric and fit in very well.

The majority of Muslims are not so nice. They hate America. They view us as unclean infidels. No matter what we do, we cannot change that opinioin. The Koran and tolerance of any non-Muslim religion does not mix. They are commanded by Mohammed (a truly viscious warrior) to convert non-Muslims. Those that cannot be converted must be destroyed and/or subjugated.

Many people don't truly understand the difference. The Muslims they know are westernized. They are nice people - friends, neighbors. They can't comprehend the unbridled hatred that the majority of Muslims feel for Christians and Jews. They really do have a cartoonish, evil desire for world domination.

I've tried to explain this to others. Muslims come in all shapes and sizes. Some are very religious, like "Born Again" Christians. Others take religion with a grain of salt. Sure, they believe in God, but don't really take the Koran/Bible all that seriously. They concentrate on the positive aspects of living a good life, help others when you can, etc. But, for all those Muslims that truly believe...we need to be worried.

Regarding the "Everybody Send a Dollar" post, maybe Steve Gardner is full of shit. His employer responds.

Keep that dollar for now. At least until this plays out a little more.
