I was checking him out.

I was checking him out. Podcast too. Thanks.  He's no dummy. The damn FFC for not getting people interested in real communication  .... as to improving our one world and human race is all the problem. Who is in the way of basic progress ??? 

                                 .... well,    "EAT the mega RICH"  .....

 This might seem off topic , but I beg it's relevant to helpful healing communication ! ,

Laugh Out Loud

 I AM GOD AS YOU wrote ; yeah I was checking him out .               And YES I think he's real good ,I caught him on a cable access channel that was from Drexel U. about 10 years ago ,talking about his book "Jihad vs. McWorld :Terrorism's Challenge to Democracy " .This was one of the first books that came out and warned us about our consumerism and it relation to terrorist action's . That was 97' or 98' .

I find his observations on islam incredibly naive.

 

Just pick up a koran and check it out for yourself. Religious fascism, nothing more nor less.

Not that it really matters , but I am little curious about the "incredibly naive" stuff .... I am always looking for ammunition against separatism dogma.

   Need a link Abu  ... Koran and Bible, basically same shit ain't it, as I have checked them both out?   Embarrassing and revealing they are .... and so we evolve !  Go open communication .....

Ok, start here:

www.jihadwatch.org/ - A regular here

quod.lib.umich.edu/k/koran/ - There are many online versions, but having a koran handy is worth the effort.

Yeah, any holy tome is at best amusing, at worst mind-numbingly annoying. So far the koran and L Ron's bilge are closely tied for first place in my opinion.

 

As for my Online name: www.youngmuslims.ca/online_library/tafsir/syed_qutb/Surah_111.htm

He was the first to publicly doubt the child-molesting, psychotic, mentally ill prophet.

I think it important to point out that fascism as defined by fascists is religious in nature. It's the control of the many by a few for profit.

Or 'Prophet' even....Yes, just take a look at Saudi Arabia. Perfect example. All that money, all that poverty. Fascinating.....
