The profound thought of a fundamentalist pro-terrorist

This halfwit fanatic insists upon writing to my personal email. He won’t post a comment and engage in an open discussion, lacking the wit, brains, or integrity to engage in an open dialogue. I will therefore post this latest idiocy and allow anybody who can stomach his stupidity to judge for themselves how just flat-out stupid his attempt at dialogue is.
Like dealing with any other person without the intelligence to understand a counterargument, I won’t waste my time or yours addressing the obvious absurdities in his diatribe.

This is also the last bit of babbling of his that will be posted. Zaki is invited to comment through the channel made available for that purpose but I have no intention of engaging in a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent. This is posted merely for its entertainment value.

We must be vewy, vewy quiet when hunting infidels!

THE FOLLOWING IS A VERBATIM, UNEDITED POST OF HIS MOST RECENT EMAIL, ALTHOUGH I ADDED THE ILLUSTRATION AND COMMENT IN RED (PG):

>> What I find disturbing is your equating Islam with Islamic terrorism.
I really do hope you see the irony in this statement.

>> To be against the brutality of Islamic terrorism is not to promote anti-Islamic bigotry.

And who is going to define this “brutality” of “Islamic terrorism”? (You don’t have to be an Islamophobe to identify the Iinnocent victim in the above picture as one who has been subjected to brutality inflicted by your terrorist friends, Zaki. So, to answer your idiotic question…any human being with a soul and a brain will define that brutality, since you are devoid of both and incapable of doing so.PG) Islamophobes and hate-mongers like you? What you perceive to be “brutality” is certainly not shared by those who have a fundamental understanding of the faith they follow in creed and practise. Your cosmetic and superficial hodge-podge propaganda is way to shallow to even begin to raise a theological debate on the matter. Your premise is too general and too fluid.

Let me repeat again… Learn before you attempt to write about things which you are clueless about. Get off your lazy fat arse and do some proper research instead of relying upon a bankrupt and dwindling fringe liberals to give you a sense of purpose in your work.

  1. I have great trouble with the newly minted and mediated term Islamophobia as a phobia implies an irrational fear of something. My objections to monotheisms are entirely rational and sit firmly within the traditions of the long debate. Islamofascism as a term however hits far closer to the mark where the illogical (and in fact treasonous to the traditions of his own professed religion, which he himself seems to no nothing about) rantings of this character are coming from. Tolerate intolerance? Fuck that. Keep sluggin' Mr. G.

  2. Thanks, Simon…

    Incidentally, I have noticed that although "phobia" means fear, the linguistic trend has been to include hatred in its meaning. Hence "homophobia", and other such words.

    Personally, I would prefer something akin to misanthropy or misogyny to indicate antipathy as the primary emotion…misislamity ?
