I ain't peddling anything to the Muslims. not democracy, not soap-suds, not

Americans are foolish to have supported such a hostile, bunch of trolls, like
the Wahabbis. They could have helped out your Palistinian buddies, for
example, with their oil billions, and trillions, 53 years ago; but refuse.
They do this largely because of Wahabbi greed, but the Middle Eastern concept
of Muslim "pride", and how "shameful" it was/is to lose a holy struggle
against Kaffirs (non-Muslims). It is also a "pressure" to win all the land
"back" and atone for their losing warsin the first place. You see, I am quite
convinced that the Middle East is messed-up, in the regard. It sucks.
<<Understanding, not condoning, is required if you actually want
to skillfully change a situation. Not understanding is truly
non-extropian if we need to cast labels about. I do not care so
much for others opinions as for doing that which I believe is
required to improve the situation.
But you have just advocated in your post, that it is not "my business" to
change the situation. I believe I do understand what happens over there, and
how much image and pride are what plays to the Muslim street. Secondly, what
you seem to have suggested, in the past 2 months, serves the political
interests of Osama Bin Landin, the Islamists, Saddam and the Wahabbis.
Because of this, it is no suprise that that the most informed Americans are
often the angriest on this issue, Jon Clark included.
And yes, it will encourage the encapsulation and isolation of Extropians to a
"kook level", were your views to be adopted.
