Peaceful violent people

Here's an excellent quote from today's NYT's from an article entitled "Growth of Islam in Russia Brings Soviet Response."

"Mr. Golayev, 36 said the Islam he observes is opposed to violence, but he warned that the mistreatment of believers was driving men like him to desperation.

'They will pressure me enough,' he said, 'and then I will blow somebody's head off.'"

Hmm, so much for opposing violence.

There seems to be some sort of alternate world out there where what you say matters more than what you do, and what you do doesn't change the truth of what you say.

That's a great point AFW. The old adage, "Actions speak louder than words" has been inverted these days.

The worst is when we ignore what they say and do-- like with the Palestinian Authority. They simultaneously preach hate and rejection in their controlled media and make vitrolic speeches. At the same time they allow or cooperate with terrorists while barely giving verbal scraps in favor of peace with Israel--and the world gobbles it up!
