Good morning, Grant
Please read your own questiont. First you talked about 'the people,' now
you merely give instances of [some] people, and attribute to these the
larger proposition. Talk about stereotyped generalization!
By your own redefinition of your question, you would have to include the US,
UK, France, Mexico, Japan, Argentina, Brazil, El Salvador, Serbia, etc. etc.
as countryies lacking a "contented and peaceful people." So what is your
point, then? Other than to express anti-semiticism and bash Muslims?
Yes, I do imagine we live in different worlds, and read different things. I
read books, I actually study issues before shooting my mouth off.
Grant, have you ever travelled to the Muslim world? If so, for how long?
Ever lived in a Muslim country? Have you ever read a book about the Muslim
world (and I don't mean one of those flashy trash books that were hurried to
the book stands post Sept. 11)? If so, please tell us. If so, a quiz will
