From the mouth of a moron

There is an amusing comedic aspect to the brain adled John Brown comparing Israel to Soth Africa. The apartheid regime may have been odious but its record on human rights was superior to the regimes Brown praises. The aparthied regime did not plan starvations, or need to build walls to keep people in. There were no Killing Fields, Gulags or Boat People under aparthied. Any comparison of the former South African regime to Communist China, Cuba, Cambodia, the former USSR is unfair to a repugnant aparthied regime. As bad and repugnant as South Africa was people still migrated there for jobs. However the quickest way to get people to leave an area is for people like Brown to install their version of Utopia.

Good point. Folks from all over Africa were clamoring to get in to apartheid South Africa, and that was something the leftists never understood. The reason, however, was simple: the blacks in S.A. were much better off than they were in other parts of Africa. Being disciminated against was no big deal when you were in danger of being slaughtered by some enemy tribe. Y'see, S.A. was a country of laws, not tribal warfare. And the big companies who had offices there (like Coca-Cola) didn't run their companies in a racist manner.

My older brother was in Saudi Arabia awaiting transport to his aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf during Op: Desert Storm. He was sitting in a public area minding his own business, quietly reading his Bible, when some Arab thugs (probably mutaween) approached him and told him to stop what he was doing. "Doing what? Reading a book?" he replied. "No, reading that book."

Now, my brother is probably one of the most irreligious people in the world, but does have the Beamish culturally insensitive gene, so was probably doing what he did to start an international incident.

But such stories make me laugh at claims of "apartheid" in Israel.

Saudi is closer to an apartheid state than most are willing to admit.

TMW,

Irreligious people make the best Christians. :)

AOW,

The land of Suad and Wahabbism isn't CLOSE to apartheid, it IS apartheid. There is only one religion recognised. We all know which one. Bibles are confiscated and the bearers are arrested and investigated to see if they are trying to import seditious and sacreligious material.

Don't even think about worshiping anything but Allah in public unless you want to try out being beaten, arrested, and possibly EXECUTED.

Yup, the land of Saud is the definition of Apartheid, as are most other Muslim countries.

All Muslim countries practise actively discrimination againsts non-muslims.
Is it apartheid? - Technically speaking probably not as race doesn't appear to be the main issue there (apart from Somalia, Sudan, Mauretania etc).
But..it is as good as it gets.

missinglink,

From what I have read about how they treat those imported to work, I would still claim apartheid. If you aren't a Saudi you have a very difficult life there even if you are Muslim.

A few other Muslim countries aren't as bad as long as you are Muslim, BUT, they are all PREJUDICED AGAINST JEWS.

I say that qualifies them as apartheid.

Brooke said...

Let's see... Muslim countries hate Jews, Christians, non-Muslims, Ameriacans (the west in general), blacks, women especially, even Muslim women.

I'm sure I haven't even touched the tip of the iceberg.

Sounds apartheid to me.

There's a very strong case for Arab countries being Apartheid. Israel, on the other hand, has none of the qualities South Africa had during the apartheid era. In Israel, Arabs are first class citizens. There's affirmitive action in Israel which means Arab students get into the universities a lot easier than do Jewish students.

But let's be frank. "John Brown" is a pathetic excuse for a human. There are a lot more like him and he reflects a growing trend in America and other democratic countries to turn on oneself: self-hatred as it has been haled within Jewish-pride circles.

"John Brown" deserves an a##-whipping and much more to be sure. Let's not get carried away and give this character too much attention, though.

John Brown is more honest about who he is then his contemporaries.
I made your same point to Brown several times and he bables off about Israelis being White incoherently.

Do note that a clown named Mark Elf who runs the infamous Jews Sans Frontieres blog. He cried about being called a Communist here. However he runs the infamous Lenins Tomb blog and responded with a collective DOH when it was pointed out.

167 who we also point out is a Commie and cries about it has defended Communism on the Chemist's blog to a amazed Jason Papas and the good John Brown of Citzcom who kicked his behind. 167 also got creamed by Justin Morris and patriotic liberal Rob Bayn. Bayn is a patriotic liberal and a gay activist who can stand only so much idiocy. Bayn's exchange with 167 came when an outraged 167 condemmed the racist killing of Tookie Williams but praised the excecutions of Gays in Saudi Arabia and Iran as just.

Welcome to the blog and I am glad that you are reading. Mad Zionist is a friend but we are not the same person.
