By selecting bits of the Koran or Islamic history to 'prove' that there is something wrong with Islam, that Muslims are all wrong headed because their prophet was a violent deviant, and their religion is fundamentally violent, is propaganda used to allow western countries (not just the US...) to exploit Muslim countries and to bomb the crap out of them when they resist, and to not care about 'collateral damage', AKA civilian casualties, because they are all just followers of a deviant religion anyway...isn't that what this is about? its exactly what Hitler did to the jews to allow a civilised modern Christian nation to carry out the holocaust...and its exactly what's happening to the Palestinians who used to be the majority population in Pre-israel Palestine...
Yep. I do believe you've mined the essence of the problem and summarized it succinctly. War crimes can and do happen to "civilized" people and are committed by similarly "civilized" people - even people who go to church, synangogue or mosque on a regular basis.
Problem is we don't tend to call these people who are being raped, murdered, beaten, gunned down, bombed, disenfranchised, tormented , etc .... "people". We call them vermin, gooks, terrorists, etc. The propoganda spinners are skilled at making them somehow "other" - as in other than fully human and therefore less important.
Either rpdog will never understand or is just trying to burying his head deeper in the sand with the continued use of his oft-repeated mantras. It does seem a little strange that he is so on top of the game and in the know when it comes to AR propoganda, but cannot see this kind of hatred staring him in the face no matter how much evidence is provided for him. Go figure.
and its been going on since the beginning of time.
George Orwell demonstrates the technique in his '1984' quite nicely...
