    Please take note. When the MB was running things, there were plenty of protests – all peaceful. Even with 30 million people protesting.

    Once the MB was out, there were plenty of protests – and the body count began.

    Need more be said?

    Anyone who can think Islam isn't behind the slaughtering going on is lying to himself. Killing is fundamental in Islam. It is required to kill infidels and "bad Muslims." It's done all the time, all over the globe, wherever there are Muslims. Their own holy books mandate this killing, and anyone who wants to do so can download and READ them, for free. The hard evidence is right there, for all to see for themselves.

    On what basis can anyone continue to think Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance? Who made that claim originally? A Muslim, of course, who didn't want people to know the truth. Do we add "the religion of" such and such to the names of Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, etc.? None are needed. Islam seems to think it DOES need self-serving compliments. That doesn't require US to accept them, when so much atrocity and slaughter is done by Muslims every single day. Nor do we see other Muslims getting on their ears about it and taking steps to STOP it.

    They still don't want us to know the truth. They are very adept at lying and keeping the truth from us. But the worst part of the problem is that so many of us are stupid enough to believe them.

    Islam is NOT "just another religion." It is an ideology of violent and global conquest, wrapped up like a burrito in religious mummery to make people think the Creator wants them to do all that slaughtering and will reward them for it.

    Once enough of us acknowledge the sick and sadistic truth about Islam, we will start trying to deal with it on a realistic basis.

    The first thing we should do is de-legitimize Islam by removing its label as a legitimate religion. It is not. People often fear going after Muslims' religious rights because their own might be next. This move would take that fear away.

    Unless you think it's A-OK for Muslims to slaughter people because they're "only exercising their religious rights," we have to do something about the horrors Islam brings to humanity.

    Until then, we will remain vulnerable to the fiendish things Muslims do in the world.

    We don't have to hate them or make war on them. Those are both stupid, and the very WORST things we can do. What we can do is to THWART them in their efforts to mobilize for global conquest.

    But how can we begin to do that until we acknowledge the reality of the threat Islam poses – and intends to pose – to all of humanity? Yeah, it's scary. But denial of it won't help one bit, and keeps us vulnerable, which is precisely what Muslims want. We'd be easier to conquer then. So face the reality, however sickening and scary. Then plans can be made to stop them cold in their efforts to conquer us.

    It is commonly done some form of description when CNN anchors put up news or showtimes on sites.
    Turbulent transition, again a boundlessness within the posts from Amanpour.
    The description replacement, could show a choise of freference, like examples from the dictionary, to replace the comment function, that can't cope with the heading, until or before someone gets Amanpour, within a description.
    The conclusion; Amanpour from todays U.S. dictionary
    1. being in a state of agitation or tumult; disturbed: turbulent feelings or emotions.
    2. characterized by, or showing disturbance, disorder, etc.: the turbulent years.
    3. given to acts of violence and aggression: the turbulent young soldiers.
    Which of the three sentence, is the choise of Amanpour, to the word the transition?
    A turbulent transition within a coutry sentence, is like a storm in a teacup towards the continent. I am afraid that the storm is gone before arriving to New York.

    It is no more turbulent or violent today then at any time in the past 25 years.

    Can't get excited about a nation of ignorant morons looking for a way off the planet via suicide. Let them blow themselves to bits, blow up their own homes & businesses.

    Let them behave like ignorant morons, they know nothing else.
