Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

On the front lines of some of today's worst human rights abuses are the three white settler colonial states; the United States, Australia and Israel - three nation states that were not only built by foreign immigrants, but also on racism and genocide.

Actually the worst human rights abuses today are happening in predominantly Muslim countries. Simple example, practically every woman (~50% of the population) is denigrated in Saudi Arabia and Iran to point to just two (or about 50m women in both countries). Then you can add more countries to the list, then you can start adding gay people, Christians, Jews, Hindus, etc and you're soon well over 100m people abused DAILY.

The Trafford Centre, Manchester, on the last Saturday before Christmas is my vision of hell, to the point that I've never set foot in the place. IKEA is my casual, every day vision of hell.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

US, Israel, & Australia are:

-violating laws designed to protect refugees.
-abusing asylum seekers.
-arming Myanmar's military while it ethnically cleanses the Rohingya.
-block UN resolutions to protect Palestinian civilans.

Red Cross says more than 13,000 Palestinians have been wounded by Israeli snipers and airstrikes in past two months, many with multiple gun shot wounds, causing an "unprecedented crisis" for Gaza's hospitals.

One of the worst posts I've seen on this forum, nevermind this thread, and a totally inappropriate use of the word 'facts'.

That would explain it then. I was wondering why Langstrasse had got so noisy of late.

After just getting back from Tel Aviv and having seen first hand how Indians & Bangladeshis were treated elsewhere in the middle east I can say with a little more certitude then heretofore that your views are in urgent need of serious revision.

Of all the terrible things Jews in general and Istaelis in particulat have been accused of over these last 2000 years or so, this one is new.

And Italy! Their soldiers were really mean to people all over Europe and especially to the dusky ones in northern Africa!

Oh, and Mongolia, what about Mongolia?! Talk about colonists!
