Apologies to Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, & Yemen
Posted On 02/02/2017 15:31:12 by TouchedPainter

To our treasured friends of the great & beautiful countries of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, & Yemen. I need to take this time to express my profound apology for the unwarranted, ignorant, immature, disgusting, intolerable, sociopathic, narcissistic, unconscionable thoughts, accusations, & threats to our precious friends in those (in my opinion) erroneously targeted nations. With tears running down my face, I am appalled & humiliated that a President (I did not vote for) could have the hubris to presume to speak for me (& most of my countrymen) in such a demeaning manner to your countries & people. Please realize we the people of the U. S. A. appreciate the valued contribution your citizens have made to help make the U. S. A. as great as it has become today. I am so sorry this deplorable excuse of a human being is attacking you & yours. Please realize his sick & twisted rants/attacks are the opposite of the vast majority of the people of the U. S. A. We will continue to advance/expound the peaceful resistance across our country. We may be stuck with this reprobate for four years, so we beg you to please understand, his acidic/nasty comments/threats are opposite of those of the citizens of the U. S. A.

God Bless You All,... we love you... & profoundly thank you,... and only wish you the very best health & prosperity. Thank you & Sorry again, L. E. P. aka TouchedPainter

I think I should be hating ALL Christians, because a Christian Pastor killed my neighbor's child in a hit-and-run.

Hi there, This is my first time on 'Over The Hill' and I'm not even sure how I got to this topic, however, I would like to take a few moments of your time & share a few things on the topic which veer from all the 'politically correct' messages on this blog & share what I have learned through research.

My families lives changed forever on 9/11.  My sister in law was trapped on the 71st floor of the WTC and was making her way out while on the phone with my brother downstairs.  He, trying to get to her ran into the building.  She made it to the 6th floor when the building collapsed.  They left behind 3 daughters ages 7 weeks, 18 months & 34 months.  They are now our daughters & have 4 very over protective brothers and parents who love them dearly but they DESERVED to be raised by their biological parents who were wonderful people.  I DID NOT WANT MY DAUGHTERS TO GROW TO BE HATERS.  I knew nothing of Islam at that time so I took the time to learn.  I wish more Americans would take the time to do so. My apologies if I am a little long winded. It's far easier to act as if critics of Islam have a problem with Muslims as people than it is to accept the uncomfortable truth that Islam is different. The truth lies in their Holy Books & the teachings of the false prophet Muhammad.

The Quran alone contains over 109 verses exhorting the believer to violence in the name of Allah & the service of Islam.
For Example:.
**Quran (2:216) "Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."
**Quran (2:244) "Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things."
**Quran (4:76) "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"
**Quran (9:123) "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."

It is correct to say Islam teaches love and kindness, but they fail to add that this applies ONLY to the treatment of those WITHIN THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY. Loyalty to one's own identity group is valued above all else and empathy for those outside the faith is optional at best - and even explicitly discouraged in places:

Quran (3:28) "Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah: except by way of precaution, that ye may Guard yourselves from them. But Allah cautions you (To remember) Himself; for the final goal is to Allah." The word 'friend' is Awliyaa which is inclusive of friends, protectors and helpers - the components of civil society.
There are many who say Muslims must assimilate with our culture however, they will not do this, EVER. It is, again, against the teachings of the Quran. The verse below instructs Muslims to follow Sharia law regardless of where in the world they live, PARTICULARLY in non-muslim countries:
**Quran (18:26) "[Allah] maketh none to share in his government."

Jamal Badawi (a favorite of CAIR) insists "Muslims should not melt in any pot except the Muslim brotherhood pot."
A 'CAIR' executive director (in the United States) recently said, "if we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land."
We must be aware that Muslims, as individuals, vary widely in their understanding of and allegiance to Islam. Simply being a Muslim is not sufficient grounds for denying employment to or making assumptions about any such individual, including their patriotism.
However, beneath the assurances from Muslims that Islam is about peace and tolerance lies a much darker reality that better explains the violence and deeply-rooted indifference. Quite simply, the Quran teaches supremacy, hatred and hostility. The Quran meets every criterion by which we define hate speech. Not only does the message inspire loathing and disregard for others, but the text mandates the superiority of Islam. There is simply no other religion on earth that draws such sharp distinction between its own members and others, or devotes as much of its holiest text toward condemning and dehumanizing those who merely choose not to follow its dogma. Sadly, and despite the best intentions of many decent people who are Muslim, the Quran qualifies as hate speech.

The holiest book of Islam (61% of which is about non-Muslims) draws the sharpest of distinctions between Muslims (the best of people, 3:110) and non-believers (the worst of creatures, 98:6). Praise is lavished on the former while the latter is condemned with scorching generalization. Far from teaching universal love, the Quran incessantly preaches the inferiority of non-Muslims, even comparing them to vile animals and gloating over Allah's hatred of them and his dark plans for their eternal torture. Muslims are told that they are destined to dominate non-believers, against whom harsh treatment is encouraged. Polished Muslim pundits in the West are fond of using the word 'bigot' to describe critics of Islam, but they are rarely challenged on their own view of the Quran. What does the book they claim to be the literal and eternal word of Allah really say about non-Muslims?
Not content with merely preventing unbelievers from knowing the truth (which is enough to condemn them to Hell) the Quran says that a hateful Allah also causes unbelievers to commit the very sin that he will later punish them for. Quran 16:93  Although Satan tempts Muslims, it is Allah himself who causes unbelievers to err.  Quran 4:143 - …and whomsoever Allah causes to err, you shall not find a way for him.  Allah even sends demons to inspire unbelievers to commit further bad deeds (that he can later hold against them):
Quran 19:83 - See thou not that We have set the Evil Ones on against the unbelievers, to incite them with fury?

This is but the tip of the iceberg when you look at the beliefs of Islam and the writings of the Quran, Hadith & Sura, the holiest books of Islam.  If we do not pull out heads our of the sand and stop with the political correct talk we are in for some of the same troubles which are rapidly getting out of control in Europe.  I grew-up in Ireland, and frequently went to Britain on holiday.  You would not know parts of London today.  A woman is not safe walking by herself is she is not wearing a burka.  Islam teaches a woman is responsible for her own rape if she doesn't dress according to what is described in the Quran.  It saddens me greatly to see what is happening however, the denial of the left as to what we are really dealing with is frightening.  Hence the reason I took the time to share this information.  Please, do not just take my word for it, pick-up the Quran and read the complete verses in context for yourself.  There is no question the real Muslims are the radical Islamist's those who are responsible for the terror in the USA & in Europe to say nothing of the Middle East.
The number of deadly terror attacks since 9/11: 30,172!  This is not the number of killings, injuries etc., this is the number of attacks!
I do not take what I say lightly and I do not expect not to be totally trashed here and maybe I should not have commented however, there is a danger here, it is spreading and the US is in a state of denial which Europe was in 2-3 years ago and it has taken this long for those with the 'politically correct' accept them because they are needy group to start to be drowned-out by those who have by those who have a problem with things like an 84 year-old grandmother who was beheaded by a man with a machette at 12 noon while she was in her garden tending her garden yelling 'Allah Akbar'.  I pray it is not too late for them.  The crime rate is out of control and they are having trouble getting rid of those who are committing the crimes because they hide amongst the other refugee's who will not give them up to the authorities.  You do not hear about these things here in the US thanks to our liberal media who spend more time on what stupid idiotic thing Trump said today rather than taking the time to report what is happening in the world.  Trump will be gone soon enough.  If it is not obvious it should be and his whole approach to Islam is following the approach Obama set down so I do not see why we are blaming him for all this when he is only following the recipe left by Obama.  Thank you for your ear and your patience.  I simply felt the need to share this information.

God Bless

Wait.....if CNN and the likes are "fake news", how could they possibly be reporting the same thing as FOX??? (aka unfake news) 

 And if Obama was so inept!  howcome Trump is relying  on his admin's info?

 And why isn't  Saudi Arabia on the ban list? Fifteen of the nineteen 9/11 terrorists were Saudis.

 Doesn't  Trump have a little money tied up there or no?

We need to be using some common sense. I don't  personally see much coming from the present administration.  Please don't  rely on one news source. Investigate everything yourself. Avoid the catch phrases and labeling. Knee jerk reactions are so hard to resist. I know that too well.

 Empathy, morals, the old Golden Rule are still wonderful things

 Divide and conquer?

Gill_r & Callisto62'

That has already been reported false, even the Republicans have said
so. These 7 nations were reported to be to dangerous to travel to (not
from) from the State Dept & Homeland Security not President Obama, because of the wars
waging there. The other mostly Muslim countries where the terrorists who have waged terror across the planet, "45" can't put a ban on those countries, because he has billion dollar business interests (government controlled bank loans) there. So he has to treat them kindly or his loans will be forclosed. The refugees from the 7 countries listed here, were already being vetted (which takes 2 years by the time all the research is completed) to come to the
other countries of the world to seek asylum. There have been
0...0...0... terrorists from these 7 countries. Absolutelly NO citizens
of these 7 nations have ever...NEVER... waged attacks on any country in the
entire planet. If you have proof to the contrary please put me in
contact with the website/webpage, I would most appreciate that favor. Thank you T

So GO after the BAD apples.  Throw THEM away.  But DON'T be so prejudiced that you throw the entire barrel away.

 Hatred, prejudice and discrimination float in the same barrel.

02/07/2017 00:01:44

That is correct, Gill.  I heard the same exact thing on the Fox News Network.  President Trump chose those 7 countries because Obama originally singled them out as being "countries of concern" for terroristic networks.  It has nothing at all to do with it being a Muslim ban, as "fake news" reports..

02/06/2017 16:50:24

The seven Muslim-majority countries targeted in President Trump's executive order on immigration were initially identified as "countries of concern" under the Obama administration.- source CNN news (among others who say the same thing.)

02/06/2017 14:30:38

you for your reply Altera. Respect requires earning, it is not an
automatic given. Every male in my family (& more than a few females)
have offered their lives to honor the respect for the U S Presidency
the rest of the U S A. Until earned any individual persons doesn't
deserve nor will receive my respect. The best indicator of future
behavior is past behavior. A person who has shown, beyond the shadow of a

doubt, who he is for 71 years, and is proud of it & has stated in
no uncertain terms on camera, he in no way will ever change, &
proves it every hour of every day,
will never have my respect until he shows total & authentic contrition for the abdominal manner he
treated way too many individuals & groups of people. President
Obama has set that bar very solidly high. All honorable people deserve
respect, that absolutely goes without being
said. A 71 year old lying/petulant 6 year old unequivocally does not. I want President Obama back.

02/06/2017 01:44:45

Callisto62, the citizens of those 7 countries have done no harm to any American (nor our allies) citizens. The people who have done harm come from the other mostly Muslim countries not included in the ban. Those countries are not included in the ban because those are the Muslim countries "45" has (billion dollar business debts) business ties with, so if he put them in the ban he would be not only hurting his business intrests, but could have his billion dollar loans forclosed on. You can easily Google & assertain the info. on the origins of the people who have done harm here & our military abroad, came from the mostly Muslim countries NOT in the ban, none, not a single one, from the 7 countries included in the ban. My apology was & is not to the government, but to the visa & green-card holders & just plain good people trying to escape the tyrany, whom have only contributed to U S A society through their good deeds in science, medicine, the arts, volunteering & just plain good citizenship; not to forget the citizens of those countries who have worked, at their (& their families also promised sanction in the U S A in repayment for their brave aid to the U S A military) peril to aid our military service men through translation & navagation, keeping our military safe from death & harm while they performed their military duties in a hostile foreign land. Shame on "45" to harm the people of foreign countries, whom none of them have ever harmed us, and excuse the countries with whom he has billion dollar business ties with, & who have come to the U S &/or our foreign military bases & blown up & cause death damage. The outrage should not be with the countries whom have not caused problems, but with the countries who have caused devistating harm. But, "45" can not because of his billion dollar business ties, and some of those business ties were transacted after his election. Anyone can Google that, or go to factcheck.com (non partican organization) to learn of what has really been going on in the backrooms & in the shadows of secrecy.

So, because you find one bad apple, you hate ALL apples for ever more?      Because one person from another country or of another faith does wrong, you hate all people of that country or that faith?         That's Not how I was raised in a mainline Christian faith!

02/05/2017 12:04:05

The people who hate Americans probably aren't trying to immigrate.

02/05/2017 11:28:46

If all those people in the countries hate Americans why is even an immigration policy necessary and people are busting their butts to get there. Not logical is it. 

02/05/2017 02:30:28

It is ILLOGICAL to hate an entire country of people, or to hate all people of a certain religion, just because of what a few have done.  I cringe when I think of people, whom I'll never know, hating me, just because I'm Christian and an American.  

02/05/2017 00:27:10

Darlene, I wanted to stop by to say that I agree with you! 100%

02/04/2017 19:49:14

it's a pity  your new presidentdoneld has no idea who the us  allies are

02/04/2017 12:30:34

My people WERE "brutally murdered" by anglo soldiers taking land that was (and is) rightfully ours!   Do I HATE all anglos because  of the atrocities a few committed?  Of course NOT! THAT would be SILLY!
