do those people have more that 2 words in their vocabulary (Allah Akbar) ?

And that, in 12 or so words, Az, is the reason the US can never a heart or a mind.

It (Arabic) is one of the oldest, richest cultures in the world, in every sphere you can name/imagine.

And even if you were being glib, that is the attitude in most of the US.

Allah u Akbar indeed.

You must admit that right before they try to kill us, shouting Allah Akbar causes an unpleasant association with that phrase.

Some people buy the Kool-Aid our government sells.

It's what keeps the ponzi going.

In the meantime, if things get really bad, Obama knows 'decisive use of military force' helps poll numbers.

Obama is a true believer of far left orthodoxy.  He won't use military force.  His base would melt away.  (Iraq and Afghanistan, you ask... he can blame those on the last guy so has plausible deniability)

I refer to "us" as non-muslim westerners. I realize they shout that when they kill each other as well. But whether it is Ft. Hood, Frankfurt, or Iraq... Allah Akbar is usually followed by bullets.

I am not positive, but I think the expression is far more common and used more widely than that.

I've seen international press coverage of political rallies where that phrase was the literal centerpiece of any sloganeering.

Maybe someone from the region and religion can let us know.

All it means is "There is none greater than Allah", Like saying "My god is the Greatest". It is said all the time, every day, from every minaret in every mosque in the world, 5 times a day.

It's the equivalent of yelling "Fuuuuuuck Yoooou" in heated circumstances. I don't think they flip the bird over there but maybe I'm wrong.

There is none greater than god


Thats the traditional translation.  However, the modern translation is " My turbin is dirty" or "I have sand in my man-dress"

Even if some one is not Muslim can use this expression. God in Islam is the name of a power capable of doing more than human can imagine. if you go to yellow stone and see sequoia far standing a 1000 feet for more than 3600  yeas, you might wanna say Alla oakbar. nothing wrong with that. or Earth revolving around sun for a billions of years, why not say alla oakabar.

If you're talking to me, no I am not a fan of profiling. As done, it's inefficient and counter-productive.

And I have never gotten profiled in my life. Ah, to be of fair complexion and blue eyes.

Don't worry my fair headed friend, even you will soon be declared an enemy of the state. Equal opportunity profiling is here to stay.

Soon it will work backwards. Everyone starts out as an enemy. It makes it easier finding the good guys that way. They stand out like sore bribed thumbs.

I wasn't talking to you, but you'll do.  Explain to me how Israel is able to not have one act of terrorism at their largest airport (admittedly - their only real airport..) using nothing but profiling, observing, etc.  No fancy biometrics, numerically random pat downs, body scanners, and no retarded TSA agents acting liking the warden on patrol - whatever.  Profiling works - its how a cop does his or her job.  Is it wrong for a cop to act on those same trusted skills?  No, its not.

God forbid a jake responded to a 911 call instead of picking the guilty thru profiling and finding a charge.

Israel has been successful, but that has to be a function of the diversity of the population (lack there of). Additionally, you could argue the US has been hugely successful since 9/11 as there have been no more attacks. If only they locked people in cages on planes there would never be another incident.......

So, whats your point exactly?  I don't get it - Israel's ability to glean the bad guys out of a crowd that all look the same is even more impressive - ever try to pick fly shit out of peppper?  Meanwhile, we're doing pat downs of 8 & 80 year olds while the "here on a an educational visa" saudi/arab/egypt...whatever, gets a pass.  As for 9/11, do some homework sister, 19 bad guys - all from where again.......

funny thing, the criminal justice system, including the prison population, puts pedophiliacs at the bottom of their list and consider it a problem. Suicide bombers, invading armies, false flag operators, having a hard time sorting that out. Does a bomb need to have "suicide" written on it to do evil?

that is very disingenuous of you.  Everyone on here has a bias, including you and me.

Correct me if I'm wrong and believe me I will apologize if so, but I've never seen you come to the defense of Jews when all the jew bashing goes on in the ZH threads.  I've gone back and looked at Michael's post(one of the Jew bashers) and Market Truth and I don't see you once come to the defense of the Jews.


Are you showing your bias?

Paz, jews are a people. judaism is a religion. Speaking of religions here.

Plus, I'm an equal opportunity basher, in truth. Israel sucks, the US sucks, India sucks..all nation states suck. All their people don't. Most, unfortunately, do. Most of their religions do.

To my point to silverrhino though, again, on religion.... they've all fallen. Badly. really really badly. I'm an equal opportunity religious basher also.

NO We weren't speaking of religions, we were talking about the Arabic culture, but if you want to parse words semantics.  I have not seen you defend Judaism or the Jews when they are being bashed as you seem to be defending the Arabic culture and Islam here.


Am I wrong?

Paz, I have no desire to get into an argument here. I was bemoaning the lack of sensitivity of the US at large to the rest of the world, as Az's comment typified.

And Arabic/Islamic culture is ancient. And rich. In architecture, language, poetry, spiritualism, music, astronomy, astrology, alchemy..... name it.

So, if stating the truth about a culture is defending it, i was indeed.

As for the Jewish question, I no longer get involved. I see the hand of Israel in India, every day, everywhere. And it's all bad. All of it. Arms, drugs, prostitution, land mafia... nothign going for it in my book unfortunately. What si said about Israel is all true.

So, by the way, is India's RAW's meddling and participation in world skull-duggery and general nastiness. All the same shit.

Thanks for admitting your bias.  As I said we all have them, whether American Indian Jew or Arab.

I also am not looking to argue I just struggle with people who make disingenuous statments such as yours.
