Questionable legacy


This "gem", currently circulating around the world, can be found here. The sheer ignorance of the message needs little explanation. To many around the world, the Western legacy isn't quite so benign, instead often filled with exploitation, invasion and colonisation.

Not all Muslims are Islamists, and not all Jews are Zionists.

Ah, I love the Dissident Frogman even more now you've shaken a stick at him, Ant.

You're manifestly wrong, by the way. That needs little explanation.

I've only just noticed that the Danish flag is a sideways Christian cross on a blood-red background, subliminally suggesting that Denmark is still carrying on the crusades.

Do you actually believe that kind of conclusion, or are you trying to score some points with the feral-left?

Here's another one:

The Pakistani (?) flag with its cresent moon on a green background looks like a shaped blade backdropped with the colour of environmentalists, therefore Greens are murderous buggers.

Pffft.

If you'd been paying attention to the comments on the other threads, you would have noticed that your Zionist friend Daniel Pipes had made the same observation, only he thought that when the Danish flag was been trampled on, the Christian cross was being trampled on too, and that Christians should have been offended.

The question still remains: was the Danish flag consciously designed to incorporate the Christian cross?

One theory suggests that it was a banner sent by the pope to the Churchly legate in the North, more specifically to archbishop Andreas Sunesøn, which he - without the knowledge of the King – brought with him on the King's crusade in the Baltic countries, in an effort to make the army take on a Christian symbol (over the king's symbol) and thereby strengthen the power of the church.

Green is significant to Islam because it signifies life or nature, and is also probably associated with paradise (the Garden of Eden). The Koran says the people of Paradise "will wear green garments of fine silk." Also it is forbidden in Islam to cut down trees.

I am not surprised that those who hate Islam also hate environmentalists. That is typical of a life-hating or Fascist ideology.

I don't accept Islam, but I don't hate it as you do. As an atheist I just don't believe in any god. But I love life, and I recognize that Islam, properly understood, is life-affirming too.
