Ideally a neighborhood is a small family, a community of people who are kind and sympathetic to one another, who share the common interests of their locality even if they differ in other ways. But just as the vision of the family in Islamic law is that of a community of a man and his slaves rather than a community of love between a man and a woman, so also the ideal neighborhood that Islamic supremacists envision is not exactly the kind of place where you might lean over the fence and have a friendly chat with your neighbor.

We have seen illustrated anew in Syria recently, as Robert Fisk (of all people!) reported last week in the Independent: “The Diab family,” Fisk wrote, “can never return to Maaloula. Not since the Christians of this beautiful and sacred town saw their Muslim neighbours leading the armed Nusrah Islamists to their homes.”

“We knew our Muslim neighbours all our lives,” says one Christian whose home was destroyed. “Yes, we knew the Diab family were quite radical, but we thought they would never betray us. We ate with them. We are one people.”

The Christians, he said, had even looked after the wives and children of local jihad fighters while they were away:

A few of the Diab family had left months ago and we guessed they were with the Nusra. But their wives and children were still here. We looked after them. Then, two days before the Nusra attacked, the families suddenly left the town. We didn’t know why. And then our neighbours led our enemies in among us.

This was an ugly shock, because previously “there was a kind of coexistence between us. We had excellent relations. It never occurred to us that Muslim neighbours would betray us. We all said ‘please let this town live in peace – we don’t have to kill each other’. But now there is bad blood. They brought in the Nusra to throw out the Christians and get rid of us forever. Some of the Muslims who lived with us are good people but I will never trust 90 percent of them again.”

"Some of the Muslims who lived with us are good people but I will never trust 90 percent of them again"

As the saying goes, 90 percent of Muslims give the rest a bad name.

But as for the peaceful 10 percent, would they ever be moved to militantly oppose evil done by Muslims? Or would they at most shake their heads, tsk tsk, and publicly "remind" us that not all Muslims are violent? /rhetorical question

You can be sure that there are many Muslims in this country - a country that has given them safe haven - who would if called upon to do so in the name of Allah do the same to their American non-Muslim neighbors.

Only a fool discounts the power of religious zealotry to bind people to a cause. The American Muslim is a Muslim, first and foremost, if the occasion arises, and Allah or the Imams call him to act.

Why would this be a surprise. It is the foundational core of Islam.

>>To speak about instances when Muslims betrayed their non-Muslim friends and neighbors in today’s environment is to commit the cardinal sin of “Islamophobia,” and to imply that all Muslims will someday turn on their non-Muslim friends and neighbors – just as Islamic spokesmen in the U.S. constantly level the false charge that anyone who opposes jihad terror is attacking all Muslims.<< Anybody faintly familiar with the history of Armenians knows about the countless Muslim 'massacres' perpetrated against the Christian Armenians; the murders, pillaging, plundering and raping of their Christian neighbours. This has all been independently documented by first and second hand eye witness accounts. Ditto for the American Missionary's reports and warnings about Moslems in Mesopotamia/Basra ; same stories different names and places. Those stories go back well over 100 years, but nothing - absolutely nothing - has changed in the mental attitude of those who adhere to that most hateful of all philosophies.

How's that "religion of peace" bull excrement working for everyone these days? To Muslims, "peace" has the same meaning as it did for leaders in the former Soviet Union: it means we have converted, conquered, or killed everyone else who was not like us.

In the words of a popular T-shirt 10 years ago: everything I needed to know about Islam I learned on 11 September 2001.

Litmus test for any neighbor, much less a Muslim one: "What do you think about Israelis or any Jew?" If the answer approaches anything close to disdain, there is a problem that cannot be dismissed at any level.

"... he padisha had sent word that we were to kill all the Christians in our village, and that we would have to kill our neighbours. I was very angry, and told him that I did not care who gave such orders, they were wrong. These neighbours had always been kind to us, and if he dared to kill them Allah would pay us out."

What the hells was she talking about? Killing Infidels is commanded in the Ko-Ran, which gains a man entry into Jannat (Moslem heaven), the eternal land of 11 yr old girls and boys and a perpetual erection.

I think the wife quoted here was just bitter that Moslem women can never be admitted to Jannat. Self-centered, she was.

The fact is that Muslims make bad neighbors. Something to remember.

More than forty years ago, my father was introduced to a very old Yugoslav, who had lived under the Ottoman Empire, experienced the Austrians and Germans in WWI and the nazis and Italians in WWII. He was asked which regime was the worst (obviously, naming Tito's Yugoslavia was not an option for him). He went straight for the Ottomans. Despite the cartloads of evidence about atrocities committed by Austria in WWI and Germany in WWII, the Turks, for him, were easily the most terrible regime.

It should never be allowed by backwards people to be considered “illegal” to accuse these criminals (moslems) of their crimes, allegedly because the painful truth might offend them or hurt their feelings, & so “make” them commit even more crimes!

No problem was ever solved by ignoring it, & nobody is doing even these moslems any favours, by indulging their historic lies that islam is a “religion” (at all, much less one “of peace”) or a “race” (much less one of poor oppressed People Of Colour”)!

ALL moslems are criminals: by their own rules, they must endorse in public every word in the Qur’an, which tells them that they are so “superior” to all non-moslems, that it’s not only their right, but also their holy duty to their god, to extort, enslave, and murder all the non-moslems in the world, simply for the “crime” of not being moslems. So the Qur'an is a clearly-written, us-versus-them hate-crime book, endorsing a permanent might-makes-right death-threat.

ALL muslims are criminals, as being members of the ancient, ongoing global extortion racket called islam. In sharia law texts, muslims are SUPPOSED to be regarded as threats (as "objects of fear") by all the unbelievers, whether or not the individual muslim has itself actually committed any crimes. That's why we have laws against simply being a MEMBER of a crime-gang or 'criminal enterprise' because the threat is inherent.

ALL muslims are criminals, members of an extortion gang. We have laws against membership in a crime gang, even if one doesn’t specifically engage in any crimes beyond one’s own membership therein endorsing the general threat. Threats are crimes in themselves: they are psychological attacks, also known as intimidation, bullying, coercion, duress, harrassment, activist agitation, extortion, and “terrorism.” And even any “only” attempted crimes are still considered by civilized people to be crimes.

Here’s islam’s “holy Message from god” as exemplified by the collective words and deeds of it’s Founder:

“I will save humanity by lying to, extorting, torturing, robbing, burning out of their homes, kidnapping and ransoming, enslaving, raping and murdering everyone who even only verbally disagrees with me – and you can, too!”

-Muhammad-

Muhammad was really only a con-man and bandit-king, an arch-criminal who always blamed “god” for his own penchant for committing crimes. If Moe got away with committing a crime (and he tried them all, enthusiastically, more than once, but instead of ever showing contrition, bragged about how much fun it was to commit them, and advised everyone else to join in the fun, too), then it was held to be “obvious” that “god” wanted him to get away with having committed those crimes!

ALL moslems are criminals: by their own rules, they must endorse in public every word in the Qur’an, which tells them that they are so “superior” to all non-moslems, that it’s not only their right, but also their holy duty to their god, to extort, enslave, and murder all the non-moslems in the world, simply for the “crime” of not being moslems. So the Qur'an is a clearly-written, us-versus-them hate-crime book, endorsing a permanent might-makes-right death-threat.

And they've acted on it, too: according to their own Eastern histories, islam has an official 1,400 year history of "holy" lies, extortions, robberies, tortures, arsons, kindappings, slaveries, rapes and 270 million murders (that's OVER A QUARTER-BILLION INNOCENTS SACRIFICED TO ALLAH, so far - it's a larger death-tally than that of EVERYONE ELSE, both secular and religious, COMBINED, and with an historical average of less than 1% of the global population to have committed it with, too)!

So, simply and precisely because of their "THOU SHALT KILL!" cultural indoctrination, moslems are still from between four and several hundred times more likely to engage in murder and all other crimes, than everyone else in the world!

So, islam is not a “religion” (at all, much less one “of peace”) nor is it a “race” (at all, much less one of “Poor, Oppressed, People Of Colour”)!

Obviously, islam is ONLY an ancient, ongoing extortion-racket CRIME-syndicate, and the only “religious” part in it, is where they say:

“God told us to commit these crimes!”

(Capisce?)!

;-)

We should simply BAN ISLAM – because everything moslems pretend to consider “holy” is already a crime!
