Why I love Islam ...
« on: September 04, 2017, 07:42:11 AM »
even though I am not a Muslim.



1 of 3 episodes.  I can relate well to someone from the 14th century, someone (Ibn Battuta) who understands the mystery of human life.

I hope to be both tasty and nutritious ;-)  Like the advanced bovine at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

All that British Empire, before you were born, before you became English ... is what brung that on.  I am sure the BBC is pro Hindu and pro Chinese as well.  There were a lot of colonies, not just the Thirteen.

As a fellow American, what do you think of that old British Empire?  Empires are always multicultural ... and they let their colonial quislings move to England.

"Multicultural" and "cosmopolitan" are very different things.  The 1st is a forced mix of different cultures, the 2nd a blending.

The BBC is hard left. Supposedly unbiased. Not at all.

I stopped watching the TV years ago.
Still paying though £145.50 per year for the privilege.
(Is that what they mean by White Privilege?)

Empires aren't voluntary, ask the current victims ;-(

Yes, Britain is different that way.  You actually have actual Leftists.  We mostly lost ours in the 1980s.  Don't know why.  But wait ... forced subscription to false media is very much a thing ... but not yet in the US.  The Internet has messed up their plans for world stupefaction.  The BBC has wondeful documentaries.  And it is wonderful I can watch them on Youtube (even if that is a CIA tool).

More than one office.  Foreign Office and India Office.  They were independent and jealous.  The Foreign Office backed Lawrence, the India Office backed Ibn Saud.  Who won?

"Useful idiots".  They sent Benedict Arnold to India because they couldn't trust him.   Once a traitor, always a traitor,
