From Barry Farber
My new Islamic friend then asked to what religion [Barry Farber] belonged.
"I'm Jewish," [Barry] said.
He leaned in and said, "Your ancient rabbis deleted the prophecy about the coming of Mohammed from the Torah."
"Beg pardon?" I said.
"It's well known, " he said. "Your Torah clearly told of the arrival of 'Achmed.' Achmed is the same name as Mohammed."
"How do you know all this?" I asked.
"Why, it's all there. It's all there," he replied, implying it was all fully documented in places where only the most venal religious villain could deny it. Yet he never quite specified where those corrobatory documents resided.
What about 9-11?
He answered with an annoyed confidence that suggested one of the crescents he was fated to bear was putting up with illiterate infidels who still don't know who staged 9-11.
"It was all arranged by the United States government," he said. "Your government needed 9-11 as an excuse to take Afghanistan," he said.
"How do you know?"
"It's all there. It's all there, my friend. All you have to do is read." Again he failed to say what it was that had to be read.
"Are you saying we Americans ourselves staged that attack?" I asked.
"Of course," he replied. "Cheney and Enron had tried to negotiate deals with the Taliban prior to 9-11. This administration decided it needed a pretext to take over Afghanistan when the Taliban refused to roll over to your demands. 9-11 had to precede an American conquest of Afghanistan."
He took advantage of my bewildered silence to "corroborate" his claim. "It's all there," he said. "You just have to read it. It's all there."
How can stupidity this flagrant and dangerous go unheeded? Does this country need another reminder that Islam is not a religion of peace much as Communism in not the system for equality? Islam's goal is to brainwash the stupid into believing things that don't exist, then their leaders can oppress women and all others who dare to make them look stupid by questioning their religion. Do these "geniuses" realize that without oil they would be third world countries? Also, without countries that actually create a product that can sustain populations their whole cultures would starve? Amazing...
