Wow, I thought his name was Onfire :laugh:

I can't believe I misread that for so long.

Someone like O'Reilly would never get on UK TV. We had an outspoken TV presenter called 'Kilroy'. He had a show that addressed current affairs and said something along the line of the rubbish O'Reilly spouts and bam!

Its getting even a sadder situation in UK-stan. One day, the likes of Brits will never be allowed on UK-stan TV.

Those countries you mention are also doing bad things to their people, and we should also try to change it - before focusing on the Ozone layer. But those countries, including the chinese mafia ruling a billion people, are not saying you are an infidel and must be killed. Its not what you say, but what you don't say which impacts here. The resume is still blank on the fulcrum issue - this is cowardly and false.

There was a war against terrorism, and Sadaam was a terror sponsor and promoter, responsible for 100s of 1000s of deaths inside and outside Iraq; the belated WMD is an excuse, and does not define the war on terror. The world owes a debt to America, now and in her past wars. Today, Europe is changing its past, cowardly and corrupt deeds by waking up to Iran - because they realise the target is not just Israel - else they would, as is their history - hide in their bunkers and shout VE VERE NOT AVARE.

I say, by all means allow Mosques to be greater in number than churches in Europe. But not so if churches, synagogues and temples are banned and desecrated in muslim states; likewise allow immigration - but not when this is not reciprocated. If one's resume is blank here, there is no credence in yelling against America.

The notion that America was bored and decided to INVADE Iraq one day is a paradigm dangling in fantasy land. The notion of justifying that fantasy by siting other bad regimes is a desperate deflection. You are saying let's not confront murderers because there are other murderers. I gave you clear examples that even the most generous nation of India, is facing this terrorism today. The reasons have nothing to do with INVASION - unless it is positied the other way around.

Edited by IamJoseph, : No reason given.

Islamophobe's Wet Dream

Wow, what in-depth political insights. What the bloody hell do you know about what's happening in the UK? UK-Stan? What piffle. For your information, Muslims account for a terrifying 2.8% of the UK population. They are hardly poised to take over.

This is just another of your apocalyptic wet dreams, with Muslims cast as the bogeyman, as usual. Not everyone is as pants-pissingly scared of Muslims as you IaJ. Scaremongering crap like this actually does the job of the tiny number of terrorists for them.

Keep it up, I'm sure that any ridiculous radical Islamist would be delighted to hear you talk like this.

Re: Islamophobe's Wet Dream
How many Brits have been allowed to immigrate to Islamic states? How many chruches in UK as opposed Iran and Mecca? The term UK-stan is hardly my innovation, but adapted from British authors, including books such as LONDONISTAN. 2.8% of terror can do worse than 80% of non-terror populations.

UK has bowed to allowing sharia to rule its institutions, and be assured the same will not be accorded to Brits in muslim states. Reciprocity must rule. False excuses and not facing truth does not turn a falsehood into truth.

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

OMG I'm a trekkie and I can't think of the episode when Data said that. Wanna give me a clue? Was he referring to Pulaski calling Mr. Worf "Mr. Woof"? I know that Deanna's mom (can't think of her name right now) persistently and annoyingly called Worf "woof".

Well done for spotting how tolerant and better the UK is than countries that are less tolerant.

And you say this is a bad thing? Is it a bad that that the UK lets people have the freedom to pray to their own gods?

I personnally believe all gods are bollocks but if you want the right to practice your own blend of faith come to the UK. The Red Neck Uneducated Neocon quotient here is low.

And we know that the surface of a sphere has no center!!!!!

The first episode of the second season, where Dr. Pulaski replaces Dr. Crusher. She mispronounces Data's name. His name is pronounced Day-duh, but she pronounced it Da-Duh. When he corrects her, she asks what the big deal is, since he's just a machine. He responds, "One is my name, the other is not."

As for "Mr. Woof" that was Q that always liked to rile our favorite Klingon.

Re: Islamophobe's Wet Dream
I say, UK should demand reciprocity, and not let democrasy and free speech be used as a weapon by those who are given citizenship. If you look at the situation in Kashmir, for example, muslims can immigrate and be Indian citizens, enjoying total freedom of religion. But Indians cannot immigrate to muslim Pakistan or have religious freedom in muslim states. Result: a one way traffic influx in kashmir, and thus, confidently, the muslim population is demanding a vote [suddenly, democrasy is not bad!], by the majority, as a means of stealing more land from the Indian sub-continent, while this scenario cannot effect muslim states.

This can destroy UK, and it is based in a total lack of reciprocity. Democrasy cannot prevail in the absence of reciprocity.

Re: Islamophobe's Wet Dream
How many Brits have been allowed to immigrate to Islamic states?

Irrelevant.

How many chruches in UK as opposed Iran and Mecca?

Oh more certainly. How else would we be able to turn them into luxury flats and nightclubs when no-one can be bothered to turn out to worship any more.

Just down the road from my home there is a synagogue. It is about fifty metres from a mosque, directly opposite a Catholic social club, about fifty metres from a Hindu temple, which is itself about fifty meters away from a protestant church.

I consider that such plurality is a good thing. Only you could interpret it as a sign of impending doom.

The term UK-stan is hardly my innovation, but adapted from British authors, including books such as LONDONISTAN.

Melanie Phillips, the author in question, is a bigoted racist moron. I'm sure the two of you would get along famously. None of this makes her ridiculous alarmist nonsense worth listening to.

2.8% of terror can do worse than 80% of non-terror populations.

If this sentence were written in English, I would be able to respond to it.

UK has bowed to allowing sharia to rule its institutions

Retarded bullshit. This is completely false. Why do you insist on being so incredibly wrong all the time?

Reciprocity must rule.

An eye for an eye eh? You've been listening to your sick monster of an Old Testament god for too long. We are a damn sight more civilised than that over here.

Re: Islamophobe's Wet Dream
For one thing, a person's political beliefs often have nothing to do with their government's position. Has it never occurred to you that a Muslim is leaving his country to go to Kashmir because they've a;ways preferred Democracy and know they can't get it at home?

You're operating under the premise that all Muslims are evil, terrorist, America/Democracy haters who only do anything if it will undermine the stability of whatever region of the world they're in. Most Muslims are pretty much the same as most Christians, Jews or anyone else. They want a good home, a chance to be prosperous and take care of their family, and not to be hassled by idiotic people with myopic views of the world.
