I didn't know Findley was still around. He was a central Illinois Republican congressman who lost his seat to Dick Durbin. (There must be something in the water down there.)
While looking up info on him, I found this tidbit:
I wonder who's paying him?
Oh, BTW, Findley, CAIR, et. al. -- most Americans probably didn't think about Islam much at all until the last few years, roughly after 9/11/01. Given what we've seen--both the murderous savagery on the part of many Muslims and the deafening silence on that savagery on the part of most of the rest -- what other kind of opinion of Muslims do you think Americans would have? You call it Islamophobia, which I take you to mean an irrational fear. I say it is good, practical, common sense and completely rational.
Prove me wrong.
The old saying that first impressions are lasting certainly applies here. Most of us in this hemisphere, where there are pleasantly few mohammedans, neither knew nor cared about this cult until recent years when they started attacking our domain and culture. Then we began to examine Islam and formed a poor opinion of it based on not only its current bestiality and hostility, but also the historical experiences of those elsewhere. Then we noticed that many of the ancient civilizations which came under Islamic domination plummeted from state-of-the art civilizations to mere goat dung. Then we noticed that in the African countries into which the mohammedans have and are expanding become poorer and less liveable.
Whoever is putting up 50 million to improve our view of Islam is as ignorant as mohammedans themselves characteristically are because of their chauvanistic world view. The only way to turn around public disapprobation of Isam is to turn around Islam! Fat chance of that!
