Hello, propaganda?...two links to interesting reads.

Islam: Governing Under Sharia - Council on Foreign Relations
Quote:
A movement to allow sharia to govern personal status law, a set of regulations that pertain to marriage, divorce, inheritance, and custody, is even expanding into the West. "There are so many varying interpretations of what sharia actually means that in some places it can be incorporated into political systems relatively easily," says Steven A. Cook, CFR senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies.

CTC Report
Stealing Al-Qa'ida's Playbook
Feburary 2006

page 7

Based on his reading of these works and the experience of the jihadis in Afghanistan, Naji articulates a grand strategy for defeating the United States. First, he observes that after the rise of the two superpowers following World War II, nations allied themselves with the United States or the Soviet Union in return for financial and military support.10 The jihadi movement had been unsuccessful in the past because the superpowers propped up these proxy governments and convinced the masses through the media that they were invincible.11 The solution, Naji says, is to provoke a superpower into invading the Middle East directly. This will result in a great propaganda victory for the jihadis because the people will 1) be impressed that the jihadis are directly fighting a superpower, 2) be outraged over the invasion of a foreign power, 3) be disabused of the notion that the superpower is invincible the longer the war goes on, and, 4) be angry at the proxy governments allied with the invading superpower.12 Moreover, he argues, it will bleed the superpower’s economy and military.13 This will lead to social unrest at home and the ultimate defeat of the superpower.14

Naji does not suffer under the illusion that the jihadis can defeat the United States in a direct military confrontation; rather, the clash with the United States is more important for propaganda victories in the short term, and the political defeat of the United States in the long‐term, as its society fractures and its economy is further strained.
(my emphasis)
Every time I hear the word propaganda in reference to something we are falling for, I think of this report.

I do think about how the laws have changed in the United States. In 1962 by way of the United Supreme courts interpretation of the 1st Amendment we have declared it's meaning to be and have established a separation of church and state. You think about it.

I've posted a few questions that I would really like to learn some logical answers.

You did mention Iran and that is a whole other bit of information that, no...not yet. But I will give you a hint. That lil dude that is over Iran had a spiritual experience. Something to take back to---the people.

Tiger, you're learning something just now, that I have known about for 35 years. This, all of this, it's just get 'en started. (and I was hoping I'd be dead by now)

And at only 1% of the population they are already trying to force their cult down our throats at work,in public, sueing everthing and everywhere for their lazy azzes on fridays for special"prayer" places with unheld against them time off work. I've had to work with these nuts and they act like on friday they can't work. Then stay the hell home and stop making my job harder with their stinking foot in my way antics. ANd by the way, that washing their feet in the wash basin at work in the restrooms,(that is there to wash HANDS !!! NOT FEET!!!)then putting stinking socks on their wet feet, is GROSS!!! aND i AM SUPPOSED TO BE NICE TO THESE INPOLITE, EXTREMELY RUDE HUMAN BEINGS? Take the muslim cult and go to hell with it in my opinion. Don't like the way things are in the USA? FEEL free to move out and never come back with your cult.

Now, let's see . . those stinking jooze were allowed to practice their LAW while under Roman occupation.

They couldn't convict Christ under Roman Law (secular).

The Romans allowed the Jooze to convict under Jooey Law.

Well, Christ never became a Roman citizen, so what the hey?

The Romans washed their hands of the whole Jewish insanity.

The Romans were more moral and Libertarian.

When in Jew Rule Sylum do what da Jews do.
