    If we were to travel and examine in detail several of the now Muslim countries, ALL of which were once centers of other cultures, we would indeed be very, very alarmed.

    Though there are examples aplenty of the Islamic expansionism and the resultant cultural respect and inclusion, Istanbul & environs … .AKA Constantinople, is a particularly good window into the potential future, in that Turkey is opposed to be a modern - secular state.

    Petergrt, I’ve traveled within the US and in the Dakotas, Montana, and Wyoming had to stop to do laundry. Three different times I needed to walk up to someone and say “Pardon me, do you have change for a dollar?”

    Three different times there was a pause and then “You a Yankee ain’t you boy?” -slightly different in each place.

    “Actually I’m from Boston and We* *Don’t Like Yankees. But we use the same money you do. The faster I get some quarters the faster I’ll leave.”

    Twice I got quarters and “You best leave now”.

    They weren’t Muslims. I think they were Evangelicals. Which I would call “…a religion, or a cult masquerading as such…” To say their “congregation hates the Western culture” could be applied since they were hating me and I’m Western culture. In no Way Shape or Form am I rising to defend them.

    The only reason that the Left rises to the defense of a religion, or a cult masquerading as such, is if that congregation hates the Western culture more than they do.

    Pete, Jesus lived, like where, exactly???? western??

    Um, if it’s got over a billion members, it’s pretty darned hard to call it a cult.

    disgustedtaxpayer -

    Try counting the number of nations Christians have taken over. Just think - there weren’t any 2010 years ago, look how many there are now!

    DrCanuck, those countries aren’t atheistic in fact Finland, Norway, and Denmark have a state religion, There advantage is a small population and a small military machine.

    It’s beyond ironic for Christians to point out how Islam has “taken over” in certain countries. As if Christianity hasn’t been doing the same thing for the past two millennia.

    But the ultimate irony is that, before Islam can “take over” America, they would need to toss out the First Amendment. The very same amendment the hysterical wingnuts are trying their best to dismantle over fears of Islamic expansionism.

    The leftists’ knee-jerk reaction is always against Judeo-Christianity.

    I said: “… . ALL of which were once centers of other cultures …”, as in other than Muslim or Judeo-Christian.

    Take Afghanistan, Pakistan, Indonesia, and on and on … .

    A year or so ago, a poll of British Muslims revealed that 100% of them believed that UK should be governed by Sharia. They did split however, 30% to 70%, as to the methodology of accomplishing it - politically or by Jihad …

    Kylop, if we were to take your story at face value, which I don’t, what’s your point? That you might have stumbled upon a couple of jerks, that you are assuming to be of some faith, and that supports your ‘moral equivalency’ argument?

    Can you possibly be anymore intellectually dishonest?

    Conversely however, I dare you visit a Muslim neighborhood in Paris, Brussels, or any other major city of Eurabia - now that would be entertaining!

    Liberals aren’t “anti- Judeo-Christian”, but we do have concerns about their lunatic fringe, just like the same fringe in Islam- or even atheism.

    One thing these fringes show is a lack of altruism.
