Islam is a wonderful religion and I hope it spreads all over the world so we can all get a sample of this peaceful, enlightened, and prosperous culture that has lead the middle east to a thousand years of peace and a liberal utopia of human rights and education.

Dr Dreidel: Joe Blowme: Dr Dreidel: Joe Blowme: well, since everyone has done it sometime in the past it it must be ok for the death cult to keep doing it in the present? Wow, i expected more from you.

Less an "everyone's doing it" and more a "stop the dick-measuring about who's a better steward of culture; everyone's done it".

I think we can all agree that destroying cultural artifacts is bad.

Yes, and we can agree those who continue to do it should be ridiculed, named, and shamed for the retarded savages they are

So ordered - on this 28th day of Janustime, in the year of Our Lord Jesus Twenty and Thirteen - that the world may know of our strength.

// a round of steaks and blowjobs* for the bar!

Any particular reason you feel the need to bring up Catholics on a story about muslims torching a Library?

Get all the historic manuscripts and crap OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST. They have proven time and time again that they cannot have nice things.

I don't think your ironic sarcasm worked. Your statement implies opposites so when you say "liberal" you are actually implying "conservative" which I don't think was your intent. Of course you can not use the word conservative in your statement since by its very nature Islamic fundamentalism like all fundamentalist is conservative and of course implying the opposite of that would not work.

I really think you need to refine your troll statement a bit more or maybe to back to some gun/abortion thread where you may feel more comfortable.


Actually it was my intent, it is ultra conservatism in its full glory. The jab at liberals, is that the irresponsible twats (like yourself) think our culture should be an open door because brown people are incapable of doing any harm, when in truth islam is a plague we should ban and halt the spread of for the good of all humanity.

sno man: Diogenes: FlashHarry: farking religion poisons torches everything it touches.

I might point out that the gatherers and caretakers of these documents over the last 500 years or so are Muslims, and that the torchers also destroyed over 300 Sufi Muslim shrines in Timbuktu.  Extremists are extreme.


I was just joining the dog pile.  Not helpful, I know.
