"the Jews didnt stand up with banners and spew race hate at our soldiers,"
"the Jews didnt attempt to inflict its laws rules or religion us"
8 years of GW Bush, "intelligent design" being taught in schools, religious displays on public property, and numerous fundies trying to write religion into law
"the Jews help economy flourish and prosper, not burden it"
Cash incentives under the banner of "faith-based initiatives" and starting an expensive war which ruined the economy
"the Jews live along side us, they may not integrate but they do communicate"
Just like Christians who live next door but don't want to have anything to do with those heathen atheists.
I know you're in Britain talking about Britain, but Christians here in the US do everything you state you wouldn't harbor a Muslim for. Would I shelter a Christian? Maybe. But I'd try to talk them out of their delusion.

The fact that the Jews tend to play nice with modern society has nothing to do with a difference between belief in Yahweh and Allah, and everything to do with differences in economic prosperity and the value of education.
Back during the Dark Ages, it was the Muslims who were the educated ones, and they lived among Europeans in peace. Well, until a bunch of dudes with crosses decided it'd be fun to go conquer Jerusalem, because some dude died there a long time ago or something, and started stabbing Muslims along the way.

What is wrong with Scotland?

If you don't shelter Muslims when they're persecuted, they have no reason to help you when you're being persecuted. You're only perpetuating their belief that the White Christian Western people are totally immoral heathen scum, you stupid dumbass.

I grant this fundie that there's a big difference between European Jews in the 1930s and 40s and Muslims and even between Muslim fundies and Christian fundies (fewer bombs). I hope I would shelter Muslims in the event of a second holocaust anyway. Boy, I bet the German people didn't come up with long lists of rationalisations of anti-semitism!/sarcasm
What is this about Scotland? I don't think the Scots would appreciate being the colony of Zionist settlers any more than the Palestinians would.

Man, just when I thought that sentence was cornered, it found some back alley non-sequitur to wriggle through and out of my grasp. Fuck!
1/26/2010 11:48:39 AM
All these deficiencies muslims have? You have them too.
1/26/2010 11:50:49 AM
I think the Jews would accept Scotland, but they might balk at wearing kilts.

I don't know...I've met a couple of English people who don't give a damn about British culture and prefer to emulate American culture...Should you guys deport them since they don't want to integrate, or do they get a free pass for being coincidentally born in the Britain?
And yeah, I'd be raising a stink if I was being persecuted, too.

This is easy to settle.
Fuck the muslims.
Fuck the christians.
Fuck the jews.
Fuck all religion. It leads to nothing but brutality and ignorance.

You know whats funny? During World War II Albania, the Muslim majority country in Europe back then, saved all of its own Jews and numerous Jewish refugees from Christian countries after telling the Nazis to go fuck themselves when they demanded they hand over the Jews. Ofcourse, that is something ppl like Korky wont ever acknowledge because then he'd automatically acknowledge those darn moooslimbs were superior to him. Go back to watching yer footie and then rampaging through city streets, dipshit

Living in Scotland I have to say, we'd rather be the Israelis' new holy land (wait, what, Israel is a religion now?) than be associated with sloped-forehead knuckle-dragging titwits like you.

When we had our Dark Age here in the West, the Muslim countries were at their peak of scientific knowledge. Sadly, they followed us down into an abyss of religious fundamentalism, persecution and subsequent Dark Age. Their's was just a few hundred years after ours.
1/26/2010 1:12:53 PM
Not that it matters, because no group of people deserve death camps... but History Fail. In every group there are those that do not play nice with the rest of society or keep as separate from it as possible.
I had a Muslim art teacher. She was a wonderful person and I would give her shelter in a heartbeat.

and fuck atheists who speak in stupid generalizations.

@entropius: Does "Manzikert" ring any bells? The Palestinian Crusades began as a response to the fresh invasion of Byzantine lands by the Seljuk Turks, who were not content with the lands that has been surrendered to them after their crushing victory following a previous invasion. Retaking Jerusalem, which had also recently been conquered by the Seljuks from the Fatimids was a secondary goal that gradually came to dominate the endeavor.
Shorter version: While this does not excuse atrocities committed at times by the crusaders, the Palestinian Crusades were a justified act of collective self-defense against Muslim invasions that were occurring at that very time.

Plenty of Muslims integrate. Most of the ones I went to school with had no problem with western customs. Yes I would shelter them.
Though sadly, this guy does have a point that lots of European Muslims do not want to integrate at all into western culture, and yes, that IS a bad thing.

I bet a fiver that this kid votes for BNP.
1/26/2010 1:58:53 PM
Yeah, maybe because you brutally oppressed the Jews for generations, took advantage of their money when it suited you, and stood by while millions were killed...
1/26/2010 2:12:41 PM
"I think the Jews would accept Scotland, but they might balk at wearing kilts."
Mebbe, but at least we both appreciate the value of a wee bit o' pence!
1/26/2010 2:29:42 PM
It's like he's never actually met a muslim. I am aware that there are twunts in that sector of the community, as in all religions and indeed among atheists (I suspect I may sometimes cross the line myself with my evangelical approach to atheism); but every muslim I actually know (about 20 or so in all) not only wants to be British, but actually is British, culturally and morally.

"I Would rather give the Israelis Scotland..."
And what gives you the idea that it's yours to give? Try fuckin takin it, fannybaws, and see how far you get. We run your country, remember - your education system being so piss-poor - and without us you'd be up shit creek.
"...not that Israel would want Scotland"
They'd like it a damn sight more than that shit hole next door!
1/26/2010 4:19:07 PM
"...I Would rather give the Israelis Scotland as their new holy-land, in exchange for the deportation of every single Muslim in our country, not that Israel would want Scotland..."
Er, let me see... You're English?
It's amazing. When Scotland wins it's ' Great scoring by Britain'. When it's a loser, it's 'Scotland loses again'. So you feel free to offer a Christian nation to non-Christians? Curious.
