Just in case this didn't post in response to one of your earlier posts.
You seem to have forgotten the Muslim invasions beginning in the 7th century to the 13th stretching from China, India, Northern Africa, Eastern Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
The massacre by Muslims in India was one of the bloodiest in history.
Atrocities against Christians had been taking place decades before the Crusades.
When Muslims conquered Jerusalem in the 7th century, the Crusades in 1066 were more of a counter-attack as Christians and Jews were denied access after having been occupants of the Holy Land for 400 years.
History is filled with bloody conquests. But you act like Muslims have always been the victims. Quite the opposite.
Oh. You mean like the Christian persecution of women as being witches?

An Egyptian official said that the army rigged the presidential elections in June 2012, fearing widespread riots should the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate, Mohamed Morsi, lose the race.

According to the source, who asked to remain anonymous, Ahmed Shafik, the former air force commander and former president Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister, actually won the race by a narrow margin. But the army generals — wanting to ensure that law and order would be upheld following the elections — feared that if Morsi was defeated, the Muslim Brotherhood would refuse to recognize the results and would end up conducting themselves just as they are now.

The official results, 51.73 percent for Morsi and 48.27% for Shafik, were almost the exact reversal of what actually happened at the polls. After the results were published, we barely heard any calls for protest or opposition among the secular-liberals, while on the religious side — loyal either to the Muslim Brotherhood or the Salafi parties — voters were happy with their achievement.

Considering that the election that Obama and McCain are using as their default argument was of dubious legality and was only achieved through another populist-military coup against Mubarak, they were just tampering with a highly tampered election.

*The irony then would be that the election that O'bama is using as the basis for Morsi’s legitimacy was no more legitimate than his removal from power. And that’s typical for the region. The former obviously dismantles Obama's case to uphold the results of the election and possibly return Morsi to power. That is dead on arrival, but if it can be proved that O'bama made such an agreement with Morsi and the Moslem Brotherhood (not Egypt), this would be something bigger than Benghazi.

<quoted text>Glenn Beck responded to the controversy on radio Monday, excoriating the national figures who unequivocally condemned the clown, saying the president is not God or Mohammed and that Americans are allowed to mock him.
“Stop treating [President Obama] like God,” Beck declared.“I apologize to those on the left, to assume that you would treat God with any respect…Stop treating him like he’s the prophet Mohammed.”
He suggested the lawmakers who can’t tolerate the mockery pick up a copy of the United States Constitution.
So, in addition to listening to 3 hours of Limbaugh, you listen to another 3 hours if Beck! What comes next?
Hannity and Savage, that takes up your whole day in addition to reporting what they say on here. Do you take notes too?
Hannity is getting sacked for more hours of Savage Nation, you must be totally orgasmic.

Republicans Trot Out a Parade of Losers to Sell Their Party’s Fail

The entire point Republicans were trying to make today on the Sunday shows is that the Politico story about the “Eve of Destruction” within their own party was all wrong. Everything is fine! See? The country loves us, we’re fine, and we can appeal to new voters! In order to prove this, they trotted out Carly Fiorina who stands for cheap, outsourced labor and lost her senate campaign, a stale John McCain who’s been on every single Sunday show since the dawn of time and still lost 2008, a screeching, strident and always annoying Bill Krystal and RNC Chair Reince Priebus, a person who manages to make Mitt Romney look connected while showing how clueless and scared he really is.

Someone needs to tell Republicans that lying about their party’s successful rebranding and great policies on the Sunday shows isn’t the best way to get the youth vote. David Plouffe tried to tell them that they need to find a product to sell to no avail.

Just sayin… The fail is strong with this party.

There was no violence nor "disrepect", to use your ghetto lingo.

The purpose of a rodeo clown is to attract the bull away from the fallen rider, so naturally the bull will chase him.

Besides, respect needs to be earned, something Obama has failed to accomplish.
