The post we both responded to said simply: "Religious conservatives at work." To which you responded "EXCELLENT POST." And by your response to me here and your asinine 9/11 illustration you are seeking to point out that religion uniquely breeds, therefore placing religion BELOW other ideologies.

You mentioned Stalin. There was a fine example of a man who didn't need religion to be one of the most impressive mass murderers of all time. And do you count Hitler as a religious ideologue? His murders were racial, not religious.

Defiling women of another culture is a classic expression of dominance and revenge.


Xenophobia and sexism are also one of the hallmarks and most appealing (appalling?) features of Conservatism in both its religious and secular forms.

In retrograde and sick cultures like those of the Middle East, the juxtaposition of such a culture along with the most reactionary aspects of the prevalent religion is what makes the events of the OP possible.

Even the name National Socialism is just another Nazi lie. Socialism was promised by the Nazis but not delivered. Today's Nazis, as heirs to the deceitful legacy of the Third Reich continue to ASSert that Nazism is some kind of socialsm. THIS IS A FUCKING GOEBBELS LIE. The fact is that the backers of the Third Reich were the Krupp family and the Farbens. These folks are more like today's Koch Brothers than socialists. As for the radical Left, they developed the ideology of Communism which we see in places like Russia, Cuba, and North Korea as well as formerly in China*. This ideology is every bit as deadly as National "Socialism"**. Moderate social democracy is a center left ideology while American "capitalism" of the 1940s thru the 1970s was a center right ideology.

*China is morphing into a POWERFUL socialist state which will dominate the world if we don't build protectionist trade barriers IMMEDIATELY.

**During the Mao Tse Tung era, 60 million Chinese were killed for opposing Maoist policy and russia under Stalin killed tens of millions more. This body count equals or surpasses the total killed in WWII/Holocaust bt the Axis.

Your analysis is flawed. You are defining "conservative" and "liberal" to suit your POV. If a religious figure does things you like, he is a religious liberal; not like, a religious conservative. So you are trying to put the stamp of "liberal" on religion when it suits you to reinforce your arguments.

Mother Theresa liberal? If you quote her on taking care of the poor, she seems like a political liberal; but libs don't quote her on her views on abortion.

Ghandi? He was a religious fanatic. His non-violence was so extreme that he believed that the Jews should not have resisted Hitler; that, by dying, they would have held the moral high ground. Thanks a lot, Ghandi.

And Jesus? His driving out the money changers and opposition to the priesthood makes him look like a liberal by political standards, but that same opposition would mean a return to religious principles from corruption looks like conservatism to me.

Unlike your assertion, I am not going to equate political and religious terminology. People are what they do. But you have conceded an important point that religion is not inherently better or worse than other philosophies.

Egypt Revolts; Morsi reconvenes Islamist parliament

Egypt’s Morsi makes bid to reinstate Islamist parliament

By Steve Hendrix and Ernesto Loñdono, Sunday, July 8 2012, 12:23 PM
CAIRO — President Mohamed Morsi on Sunday ordered Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament back in session, boldly defying the military leaders who had disbanded the body just a month ago. The generals went into an emergency session within hours of the decree.

According to Egypt’s official news agency, Morsi reversed the June 15 annulment of parliament by the military council, which had been ruling the country until he took office late last month, and ordered lawmakers back to work. A majority of the legislators are members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party — to which Morsi belongs — or other Islamist groups.

Morsi also called for parliamentary elections to be held within 60 days of the approval of a new constitution, which is expected later this year.

The decree is considered pivotal by many observers, who have been waiting to see how the fledgling government would respond to the military council’s grab of executive powers on the eve of the presidential election.

Just a week after being sworn in, Morsi answered with a direct challenge to the generals, signaling that the unfolding power struggle between the armed forces and the once-banned Muslim Brotherhood would not be a one-sided fight.

“No one is going to dismiss Morsi as a figurehead now,” said Shadi Hamid, director of research at the Brookings Doha Center in Qatar. “They had to do something to fight back and gain the momentum. Assuming it wasn’t pre-negotiated [with the military], and it doesn’t look like it was, it’s certainly an aggressive first move.”

The decree further confuses Egypt’s tumultuous transition from dictatorship to democracy just one week before a planned visit to Cairo by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Morsi’s gambit could mark the start of a prolonged game of brinksmanship between an entrenched military and a government with popular support.

Morsi’s opponents were quick to accuse him of overreaching.

“The Egyptian Army now is responsible before god and history and the people to protect the law and the constitution,” wrote independent parliament member Muhammed Abu Hamed by Twitter.

But the president’s supporters among the Islamists hailed the decree. Mohamed Saad Katatny, head of the dissolved parliament, said in a statement that the legislative body would try to hold a session as soon as possible.

“Which is constitutionally stronger, a president elected by the people’s free will? Or a group who wants a military rule,” party Chairman Essam el-Erian said via Twitter. “The armed forces are not responsible for legitimacy, the people are.”

Few can predict where the standoff will head next. Given the profound disarray of Egypt’s governing institutions, few can even say who had the authority to arbitrate.

The military dissolved parliament after a June 14 ruling by the Supreme Constitutional Court that one-third of the members of the lower house had been elected unlawfully.

The ruling was a significant setback for Morsi’s Freedom and Justice Party, which had just under half of the seats in parliament. The judges are appointees of the Hosni Mubarak era and are widely assumed to have acted with the blessing, if not the prodding, of the generals.

The next day, in addition to dissolving the parliament, the military council took sole control of its own budget and a range of national security prerogatives.

Morsi’s decree coincided with a visit to Cairo by Deputy Secretary of Defense William Burns, who said Washington would help jump-start Egypt’s ailing economy.

“Egyptians know far better than we do that their aspirations are not yet fully realized,” Burns told reporters after meeting with Morsi. “But they can count on America’s partnership on the complicated road ahead.”

According to Hamid, Morsi may have created an opening for a solution that would serve both parties. Reseating the old parliament would give Morsi an invaluable legislative boost as he struggles to form his government. At the same time, ensuring relatively quick elections would give the military the new parliament it craves for the longer term.

The two sides could be dancing toward some kind of settlement, Hamid said. “The Brotherhood makes an aggressive move, the military reacts, and then they sit down and negotiate something,” he said. “I think it was a good first move. At least something is going to happen now.”

Egypt Revolts; Imams call for destruction of pyramids

Calls to Destroy Egypt's Great Pyramids Begin

By Raymond Ibrahim
Posted GMT 7-10-2012 14:44:23
According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt's Great Pyramids — or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi'i, those "symbols of paganism," which Egypt's Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain's "Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs" and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt's new president, Muhammad Morsi, to "destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not."

This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad's companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself — deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran — was destroyed under bin al-As's reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar's command.

However, while book-burning was an easy activity in the 7th century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was not — even if Egypt's Medieval Mamluk rulers "de-nosed" the latter during target practice (though popular legend still attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).

Now, however, as Bahrain's "Sheikh of Sheikhs" observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramids can be destroyed. The only question left is whether the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt is "pious" enough — if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt's first Islamic conqueror.

Nor is such a course of action implausible. History is laden with examples of Muslims destroying their own pre-Islamic heritage — starting with Islam's prophet Muhammad himself, who destroyed Arabia's Ka'ba temple, transforming it into a mosque.

Asking "What is it about Islam that so often turns its adherents against their own patrimony?", Daniel Pipes provides several examples, from Medieval Muslims in India destroying their forefathers' temples, to contemporary Muslims destroying their non-Islamic heritage in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Malaysia, and Tunisia.

Currently, in what the International Criminal Court is describing as a possible "war crime," Islamic fanatics are destroying the ancient heritage of the city of Timbuktu in Mali — all to Islam's triumphant war cry, "Allahu Akbar!"

Much of this hate for their own pre-Islamic heritage is tied to the fact that, traditionally, Muslims do not identify with this or that nation, culture, heritage, or language, but only with the Islamic nation — the Umma.

Accordingly, while many Egyptians — Muslims and non-Muslims alike — see themselves as Egyptians, Islamists have no national identity, identifying only with Islam's "culture," based on the "sunna" of the prophet and Islam's language, Arabic. This sentiment was clearly reflected when the former Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Akef, declared "the hell with Egypt," indicating that the interests of his country are secondary to Islam's.

It is further telling that such calls are being made now — immediately after a Muslim Brotherhood member became Egypt's president. In fact, the same reports discussing the call to demolish the last of the Seven Wonders of the Word, also note that Egyptian Salafis are calling on Morsi to banish all Shias and Baha'is from Egypt.

In other words, Morsi's call to release the Blind Sheikh, a terrorist mastermind, may be the tip of the iceberg in coming audacity. From calls to legalize Islamic sex-slave marriage to calls to institute "morality police" to calls to destroy Egypt's mountain-like monuments, under Muslim Brotherhood tutelage, the bottle has been uncorked, and the genie unleashed in Egypt.

Will all those international institutions, which make it a point to look the other way whenever human rights abuses are committed by Muslims, lest they appear "Islamophobic," at least take note now that the Great Pyramids appear to be next on Islam's hit list, or will the fact that Muslims are involved silence them once again — even as those most ancient symbols of human civilization are pummeled to the ground?

I think destruction of the pyramids would cause about 100 times the reaction that destruction of the Buddhas caused.

Also, destruction of the Pyramids would assume an Egyptian government that doesn't care about employment for its citizens.

Reaction? What do the Islamists care about reaction?

Frankly, I thought they wanted to destroy the pyramids because, as some believe, the ancient Israelites built them while slaves in Egypt.

The Islamists can destroy the pyramids and nobody will do a thing about it. Hillary Clinton will sit there, wringing her hands and tell us that its an internal Egyptian affair. What are we going to do, send in fighter jets to stop them? Think that might be an unpopular war?

Moral of the story: THIS is what happens when you bring democracy to Arabs.

Yes, unfortunately.

Hey, it is a democratically elected Muslim government, though. Democracy isn't all of what it's cracked up to be.
