The level of absurdity on this one just went to 110 (out of 10).
Here’s the backstory (a bit of it anyway). And here’s the ad from a political group that invaded and destroyed a country because it had the same religion as “them”. You really can see “their” thought process on Iraq in this video. The hatred just seeeps…
I guarantee you the Tea Party nutjobs (with their own “class” displayed here) probably got a stiffy and a nice herp, derp, guffaw out of “the audacity of jihad.”
The amount of hate and death spread by a group of whom 90% allegedly follow a guy who said to love your neighbor and turn your other cheek when attacked (and wasn’t so high on the rich) is astounding. It’s almost like they are a bunch of hypocrites (yet another religio-politico contradiction). Scratch that, it’s not almost, it’s exactly like that. I guess it’s easier to shoot people when sitting on a high horse.
I mean, can you find a better real-world example of hypocrisy?
At one point, a portion of the crowd menacingly surrounded two Egyptian men who were speaking Arabic and were thought to be Muslims.
“Go home,” several shouted from the crowd.
“Get out,” others shouted.
In fact, the two men – Joseph Nassralla and Karam El Masry — were not Muslims at all. They turned out to be Egyptian Coptic Christians who work for a California-based Christian satellite TV station called “The Way.” Both said they had come to protest the mosque.
“I’m a Christian,” Nassralla shouted to the crowd, his eyes bulging and beads of sweat rolling down his face.
But it was no use. The protesters had become so angry at what they thought were Muslims that New York City police officers had to rush in and pull Nassralla and El Masry to safety.
“I flew nine hours in an airplane to come here,” a frustrated Nassralla said afterward.
