From Reuters: SYRIA'S MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD MOVEMENT CALLS ON SYRIANS TO TAKE TO STREETS TO DEMAND FREEDOM - DECLARATION ISSUED AHEAD OF FRIDAY PRAYERS .

And so it just became religious.

Syria's banned Muslim Brotherhood called on Syrians to take to the streets to demand freedom, a declaration by the movement said on Thursday, ahead of Friday prayers.

"Do not let the regime besiege your compatriots. Chant with one voice for freedom and dignity. Do not allow the tyrant to enslave you. God is great," said the declaration, which was sent to Reuters.

It was the first time that the Brotherhood, whose leadership is in exile, had called directly for demonstrations in Syria since pro-democracy demonstrations against President

And now a reading from the holy book ( Snow Crash )

 

"When it gets down to it — talking trade balances here — once we've brain-drained all our technology into other countries, once things have evened out, they're making cars in Bolivia and microwave ovens in Tadzhikistan and selling them here — once our edge in natural resources has been made irrelevant by giant Hong Kong ships and dirigibles that can ship North Dakota all the way to New Zealand for a nickel — once the Invisible Hand has taken away all those historical inequities and smeared them out into a broad global layer of what a Pakistani brickmaker would consider to be prosperity — y'know what? There's only four things we do better than anyone else:
music
movies
microcode (software)
high-speed pizza delivery"

Yes, in protection of your statement, America inherited the resources and the isolation from Europe enabling her to develop a free enterprise economy under a Christian-principled government; while the followers of Mohammed, in spite of French and British colonial aggressiveness, populated the desert areas of North Africa and the Arabian peninsula and the Middle East where under the sands were vast petroleum resources. And, as it is true that the financial resources of much of the world are controlled by the Jews, and thanks to this Jewish financial control, much of the growth in manufacturing has been moved from U.S. shores to China's.

By the way, Tyler, the comment “It just became religious” is closer to cultural unrest, a current development in many nations. Islam, Christianity - as it formed the basis for America’s free enterprise development, and secular Judaism - as an ingredient now in American foreign policy under fire in the Middle East, are all part of the unrest scenario. At this point, a potential Syrian revolution would naturally involve Islam as it is fights against a secular tyranny in al-Assad’s government.

Case in point is a February feature in Vogue Magazine, published by Samuel Irvin Newhouse, Jr., that shows how American Jewish opposition to Islam becomes support for a bloody dictator’s “secular” government. The article, entitled  Asma al-Assad: A Rose in the Desert, begins: Asma al-Assad, Syria’s dynamic first lady, is on a mission to create a beacon of culture and secularism in a powder-keg region—and to put a modern face on her husband’s regime. “

This is how TPTB (through their footsoldiers in the CIA and MI-6, who finance/guide Al Qaida, MB, JI and the colour revolutions in Central Asia) are able to control who runs the resource rich countries. It's not just the ragheads, either ... Indonesia, Venezuela, Brazil and many African nations are on the list when their turn comes for a change of leadership or governing party.

Islam is a totalitarian political system masquarading as a religion. Western lefties have been actively helping the MB organize for the last two years. Pictures are all over the internet of them marching (with special protection) in sympatico with eg., Hamas (MB in Palestine).

They want to re-recreate the Ottoman Empire that stood for 400 years until broken up in WWI. That's precisely why the MB was created in 1928. The current country borders are artificial Western creations, like the nation of Israel. I'm not 100% with Israel, but I have more in common with their value system that allows coexistence.

This is all going to mean a big war in the ME when the current despots are dispatched. The PA and Hamas are making peace with each other with Egyptian MB's help. War with Israel will unify the region politically under the MB.

How the rabid right froths at the mouth for lost empire...Read history. Before the Arabs went rabid muslims and reactionary political nation and lost THEIR enlightenment in 1400, they were the progressive edge of ME civilization in 700-800. They brought math and philosophy and 'conviviencia' (tolerance) to Spain/Sicily. They translated Aristotle and understood him better than anyone. Then the slide down...imperial, decadent downing street...aided and abetted by the christian reactionary Crusades...The West reinvented humanist values during Renaissance...It was game over for Islam right there...All the Ottomans achieved was POWER play,  human progress in architectural and administrative terms that went 'statist bureaucracy' under its own weight. So goes the wheel of fortune amongst peoples and nations. Don't bitch about US regression as it was totally self inflicted, based on uber-alles hubris under Reagan/Bush. 

As for "losing the ME...and the Oil patch...in coming years...it is as sterile pipe dream as the 1949 trauma that hotted the cold war in far east : "We've lost China" rant.

I told my sociology professor I viewed it as another form of mental masturbation, who gives a shit what the other side thinks.  Might makes right, always has, always will.

That said, however, doesn't preclude that we should not be involved militarily all over the god damned world.  Our original precepts were to stay out of world affairs.  We should withdraw all forces and let the rest of the world blow themselves out.

For future readers who lack reading comprehension -  I support our full closure of all foreign military bases.

Continuining on my original point, which seems to have completely and effectively dodged your grasp, comparing Baptists and Muslims is tantamount to comparing apples and wombats.  Please get back to me when Baptists mount a successful suicide bombing campaign that compels Mr. Durden to erase all offensive anti-Baptist information and epithets from this site.  Actually, just get back to me when ONE (1) evil Baptist actually beheads another human being simply for having a different skin color.

Until then, please go Eat A Bag Of Dicks And Die In A Fire before you do any more damage, you evil fuck.  Same goes for JW of DP Island.

read history! The christians killed a mega ton more than anybody else in the name of their god on all continents of the world than any other religion. As for genocide in history : in the ME it occurred four times : First christian crusade in Jerusalem, Mongol Halagu play in Baghdad, Turkomen Tamerlane play in Baghdad, Ottoman Armenian play in 1915. These were overt genocidal plays. There have been numerous military massacres in ME and Asia as in Europe over history. But that is just zero sum empire play; not ethnic cleansing...like the massacre of Cathars in Provencal France during the Inquisitional papal crusade against heretics; the inside terrorists/commies of that age. As Hitler the 'good aryan' did with the jews.

You're not very good at this.

At this point, you flailing idiots can just give up.  There is no reason to compare pig-ignorant Muslim fucks who want to rule the world to...Baptists.  Hell, I don't even like or agree with Baptist doctrine but I'll be damned if I'll let you or whoever that other moron was or JW Fuckstick make demonstrably false comparisons unchallenged.  For crying out loud just look at how the Muslim world reacted when a simpleton burned their precious Koran!  They fucking rioted and killed people!  By your moronic standards, Baptists should have a comparable reaction to your burning of a Bible.  I could use an easy buck if you're taking wagers...

No, his point was to compare the beliefs and actions of Baptists and Muslims. 

JW n Kindeegawden said:

 

the Muslim Right.. like the Baptists here want the end to come! so that the second coming will come!

The two are incomparable.  The fact that you have to go back 4 centuries to find even a remotely plausible comparison only serves to highlight how vapid your argument is.  When are these goat fuckers going to socially evolve with the rest of us?

Likely never; they'd rather bring us all back to the 6th century.  And while they're actively trying to bring that result about, you're arguing that they're comparable to Baptists.  There are not words to describe the depth and breadth of your pig-ignorance.

Last post on this until someone burns a Bible and gets beheaded by a Baptist.

They're the same God. Islam just had a sequel to the New Testement - which changed a lot. Just imagine watching The Empire Strikes back for the first time and finding out that Darth Vader is Luke's father. It rocked my world, anyway.

Incidentally, you can find a whole lot of rapture freaks in the West.

I'll leave you with some philosophy (for the sake of balance):

"It is a subtlety that God learned Greek when he wanted to become a writer, and also that he did not learn it well."

The first sentence of Bucky fuller's 'Cosmography' is "The Dark Ages Still Reign !" So in case the Dark Ager douchebags who may have missed the grossly underreported findings that all the primal gods of our species were celestial bodies in a very differently arranged solar system of several thousand years ago... Perhaps a way to calm down these schizohumanoids would be to spread the info that El and the Arabic wannabe Allah was a fucking planet...Saturn to be precise. Same for the rest of the primal gods too including Brahma, the Golden Emperor, Ra and those of the Amer-Indians also..Hahahhahha funny to think about, a fucking planet.  If you are not up to speed on your pre-history (whose fire and brimstone memories are verily written into our bones and  DNA) try Cardona's 'God Star' as a starter. Seems like La Realite depasse la fiction n'est pas?

Bucky knew alot more than most.  Few know that many of the ancient 'gods' were actually celestial bodies, or that there was at least one "war in heaven" and the remains of some of the losers  comprise most of the asteroid belt.

Not all of these celestial bodies were natural though.  One survives as a moon of Saturn and appears to be a "buckyball" construct.

Actually "Allah" was a moon god worshipped by the Quresh tribe to which Mohammed belonged.  They worshipped many gods including Allah and his daughters, viz., Al Lanat and Al Manat.  Mohammed just picked "Allah" as the only true god and declared that all other gods were false.

Allah (Arabic: ????All?h, IPA: [?al????h]  ( listen)) is the standard Arabic word for God.[1] The term is best known in the West for its use by Muslims as a reference to God in the context of Islam. It is also used by Arabic speakers of all Abrahamic faiths, including Mizrahi Jews, Bahá'ís, Eastern Orthodox Christians and Eastern Catholic Christians, in reference to God. – Wikipedia

“God heard the boy (Ishmael – son of Abraham and Hagar) crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, ‘What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.  Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.’” (Genesis 21:17, 18

The Biblical account of Ishmael is the prelude to the founding of Islam.  Arab Muslims trace their lineage back to Abraham through Ishmael.

Later, when Rebekah learned that her husband Isaac, son of Abraham and Sarah, was preparing to bless Esau, his favorite and first born son, she devised a plan to trick him into blessing Esau's twin and her favorite, Jacob. And thus, Esau was tricked into trading his firstborn inheritance for a bowl of pottage, i.e., stew.  Esau, after marrying two foreign girls, then married into Ishmael’s family, hoping to please his parents, Isaac and Rebekah

Yemem contributes 400kbpd, a quarter of Libya's oil ouput, and at least fractionally worthy of interest in this matter. Syria? Won't matter.

The more significant subtle tidbit is Medvedev's announcement that Russia will export no gasoline.  Keeping it all internal amid shortages they are seeing.

If there are shortages to be filled, that is by definition increased consumption coming, so whoever was burning that gasoline Russia used to export will have to find another refinery source, pressuring that supplier to find more crude.

Oh, and did folks notice that summer is arriving?  The more or less entirety of the Middle East uses oil fueled electricity generators.  That's where their air conditioning comes from.  Oil.  No, not hydroelectric.  Oil.

Crude, unlike gold and silver, is the lifeblood of civilization and its primary determinant is not geopolitics or monetarism.

It is geology.  There is absolutely desperate running around in circles screaming that it's all from printing or from geopolitics, or Ben says it's from increased demand from emerging markets.

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EXCESS DEMAND AND INADEQUATE SUPPLY.

They are the same thing.  The crushing reality is that only the demand side can increase.

A priest and an Irishman board a plane and end up sitting next to each other. Unfortunately there was a delay, so the stewardess came around offering free drinks.  When asked, the Irishman replies "I'll have a wee bit of Irish whiskey, lassie".  She gives him a glass full of whiskey and he begins to sip. She turns to the priest, asks him if he wants a drink and the priest replies "I'd rather be tied to a tree naked and whipped by seven measly virgins than have Irish whiskey touch my lips".  Immediately, the Irishman hands the glass of whiskey back to the stewardess and says "I didn't know we had a choice".

I couldn't resist, but I did say seven measly virgins.

After the usual flight delay, the demure air hostess offers them french champagne. The frenchman accepts and the priest scoffs..."I'd rather be tied to a tree naked and whipped by seven avid, lusting virgins than have French champagne touch my lips".

Immediately the Frenchman finishes his glass of bubbly and says to the stewardess..."Now can I have my other option please!"
