Palestinians torch YMCA
I find it so funny that far leftists support the Palestinians in their 'cause,' saying how oppressed they are, when they ignore the oppression that the Palestinian Muslims wreck upon the Bedouins, Druse, and Christian Palestinians. This recent news story is just one example of this double standard. Palestinians torched a Qalqilya YMCA in the West Bank, and warned Christian Palestinians to LEAVE or face the repurcussions. Imagine if the torching was done by a Jewish group. Imagine the worldwide condemnation and outcry. Imagine the flags being waved and the slogans being chanted. Double standard? Nooooo!!! Of course not! //sarcasm over On this anniversay of 9/11, let us take a moment to reflect upon the prejudices seen across the world, and the hate being spread in the name of religion and/or nationalism. There will be more 9/11's until the hate fires die down. There will be more 9/11's as long as we coddle and reward those who hate. It's time to stand up and be counted. It's time to proclaim, as Howard Beale proclaimed, I'm mad as hell, and not gonna take it anymore! I am sick of mourning. I am sick of reacting. It's time to act definitively and take back this country in the name of truth, justice, reason, and progress. Spread the word, engage your friends. Get them thinking. Spread that seed of rationality, and maybe it can grow into more. It can happen. Though maybe I am just a silly optimist.
