Really, anything will set these idiots off...
Reader comment on: Why They Hate Us

A few years back, Mark Steyn wrote something that bears on the subject:
> A few decades back, a young middle-class Egyptian spending some time in the U.S. had the misfortune to be invited to a dance one weekend and was horrified at what he witnessed:
> "The room convulsed with the feverish music from the gramophone. Dancing naked legs filled the hall, arms draped around the waists, chests met chests, lips met lips . . ."
> Where was this den of debauchery? Studio 54 in the 1970s? Haight-Ashbury in the summer of love? No, the throbbing pulsating sewer of sin was Greeley, Colo., in 1949. As it happens, Greeley, Colo., in 1949 was a dry town. The dance was a church social. And the feverish music was "Baby, It's Cold Outside," written by Frank Loesser and sung by Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban in the film "Neptune's Daughter." Revolted by the experience, Sayyid Qutb decided that America (and modernity in general) was an abomination, returned to Egypt, became the leading intellectual muscle in the Muslim Brotherhood, and set off a chain that led from Qutb to Zawahiri to bin Laden to the Hindu Kush to the Balkans to 9/11.
really, more or less, just about anything will set these idiots off.
that being said, the appeasement appeals are always very selective, so that appeasement means doing things liberals want us to do, and conservatives at the very least are cool to the idea. The most blatant example of this was when that twit said that bin Laden was beloved because he was building day care centers over there. you know, because bin Laden wants to support the mother who wants to have children and a career. *rolls eyes*
recently I laid out a list of things we would have to do to really appease the terrorists. The list includes:
1) kill every gay person we can find.
2) force women back into the home and to cover their bodies.
3) force everyone to convert to islam.
4) pass laws outlawing blasphemy against Islam, preferably with the death penalty available.
5) allow Hamas to murder every man, woman and child in israel; indeed we would probably have to help in that to get full credit.
Please note, several of these require the repeal or modification of certain contradictory constitutional amendments, including the 1st, 14th, 19th amendments and probably the 13th amendment just for good measure in case women complain that being forced into the home amounts to slavery.
