Lest you think I'm merely decorative-- all fluff and no substance-- I have to share with you this bit I found on Tip Jar's very informative blog. Below his masthead is this excellent quote: "The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis." - Dante Alighieri. Anyway, Tip Jar offers a great deal of insight into Islam's culture of destroying other cultures."If, tomorrow, you read that the Louvre had been leveled by Muslim bombs -- would it surprise you? Of course not, because you now know not only about the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas, but about Muslim prohibitions on sculpture and painting. If you realize the tenets of Islam that pose a threat to art, science, and human freedom, then what do you think our leaders and others whose duty it is to instruct us should be doing?"
Somewhere on the internet last night (you know how the link-chase thing goes) I saw this video quoted here of Muslim adherents in Mecca chanting "Death to America, Death to Israel." Chilling.
