I'm sorry. What the hell is it about the islamic world that thinks it's a-okay to blow up in anger and in violence at the slightest provocation?
First, we had the whole tortured story about those cartoons.
I won't even get into the fact that Shias and Sunnis are busy torturing each other to death.
There are those stories about thinking that jews caused 9-11 and believing the protocols of the elders of zion.
But this sort of takes the cake. Israel is repairing the bridge that leads to the Dome of the Rock. And they're rioting! I don't get it. If Israel left the damn bridge or ramp in disrepair, I'm sure there would be riots about how they were doing bad things to stop muslims from praying. Someone would get into a fervour and fall and die and then we'd have riots.
But what's is up with the conspiracy!? They think Israel's going to damage the mosque? Do they think Israel is fucking STUPID? Yes, in plain daylight, they're going to bulldoze the damn thing down. Israel can't even sneeze without muslims rioting and Tehran threatening to blow it up; you think they'd even chip the paint on a tile of the damn Dome of the Rock?
Honestly, though I think the tar sands are really a bad idea, it would be great to be independent of oil from the middle east. That way, we can build a nice big wall around it (leaving out Israel), and say, look, when you fucking grow up and start behaving like adults and not fly off the handle and blow each other and other people up whenever someone "insults" you, you can come out. Until then, keep on chanting that God is Great or Moktada! Moktada! Moktada! while you slit each other's throats and riot and torture each other to death, all while saying Islam is a religion of peace.
