Said Arab world believes women are property, is tolerant of slavery, and intolerant of homosexuals.
I guess that's fine, then, if that's the majority's belief.
AyaTrolLiar> [wups]The reality, much to the AyaTrolLiar's chagrin, is that the Arab world is changing.
Both the government, and the people.
AyaTrolLiar> the pressure for reform generally comes from below in the Arab world
AyaTrolLiar> the Arab Spring, the April 6 movement, the Kifaya movement
These are less than 10 years old, the outcome quite in doubt.
Of course, he opposed the Arab Spring in Syria and Libya.
When his favorite ruthless dictators were the target.
He's also lamented that these popular movements were taken over by others.U.S. Illegally In Syriahttp://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4296198
AyaTrolLiar> the Cedar Revolution
That finally ended 30 years of Syrian occupation of Lebanon.
Which the AyaTrolLiar was never interested in.
And he continues to support the Assad/Iran/Hizbullah axis that was opposed.Lebanon 101: Why Hezbollah hates the Hariri tribunal (UN STL)http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1331632
AyaTrolLiar> the Intifadas, BDS
Not in the Arab world and his terrorist Hamas heroes generally get only a 30% approval rate.
BDS is an external movement and not very popular at home, where the people aren't as interested as the haters in sacrificing themselves to punish Jews/Israel.BDS movement: My Palestinian pride is not measured by your hatred of Israelhttp://www.startribune.com/bds-movement-my-palestinian-pride-is-not-measured-by-your-hatred-of-israel/413774143/
|| As a proud Palestinian who grew up in the often difficult conditions of the occupied West Bank, I see no contradiction between dedicating my life to achieving a free and independent Palestine and strongly opposing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.Boycott Israel Movement Stunts The Palestinian Economyhttps://www.forbes.com/sites/carriesheffield/2015/02/22/boycott-israel-movement-stunts-the-palestinian-economy/#429f2c0a1648
Those who hate Israel more than they care for the Palestinian Arabs, of course, press on.
AyaTrolLiar> the Western Saharan struggle
Where Berbers (some of whom still speak Berber) are fighting off Arab colonialism in what the AyaTrolLiar nonetheless describes as part of the "Arab World".
But we know he's only against western empires and colonialism.
Never mind that the opposition is based next door in Algeria.
AyaTrolLiar> the Algerian independence struggle...
Wikipedia> most Algerians were in favor of a relative status-quo. While Messali Hadj had radicalized by forming the FLN, Ferhat Abbas maintained a more moderate, electoral strategy. Fewer than 500 fellaghas (pro-Independence fighters) could be counted at the beginning of the conflict
With examples as these, who needs enemies?!Never mind that, as I noted, we're seeing that reform from bloggers, who tell us they've been brainwashed to hate Israel and homosexuals, etc.
AyaTrolLiar> obscure blogger
ROTFL. He can do no better than attack the source... as usual missing the point this this is the type of person he should be supporting. A humanitarian atheist with critical thinking skills... you know, the very grass roots he just pretended to champion!
