San Antonio – Protests about Libyan civil by Muslims at Federal Building downtown

Has anyone considered that the people that are NOT over there are over here because they didn’t LIKE it over there to start with?

What gives these people voices. It’s certainly not their numbers.

I’m not saying that Qaddafi is a good guy, but this is not our fight.

OUR, the WESTs, understanding of freedom comes from the faith that either we share or is similar enough that the values translate well.  The basis of Christianity comes from Judaism.  Islam doesn’t share the same CORE values.

Islam is, at it’s core, Conquest and Submission.  It’s a house of horrors to all non believers.

SAN ANTONIO — Holding signs and shouting “down with Qaddafi,” dozens of demonstrators rallied around the Federal building downtown, in an effort to show solidarity with the Libyan people.

Local Muslims said they support the protesters in Libya, and their efforts to oust long-time President Muammar Qaddafi, who has been in power more than 40 years.

“People, if they don’t like a president, they should be able to be able to change and to choose and elect. Not fake elections,” said Said Motawea, who is originally from Egypt.

Howaida Werfelli, whose family is originally from Libya, said the wave of protests across the Middle East are a reflection of the frustration people there feel after years of political oppression.

“People have decided it’s done. It’s too long that they’ve lived under an oppressive regime,” said Werfelli. “They’ve lived without basic human rights, they’ve lived without jobs, they’ve lived without food.”

Werfelli said it was important for her to show solidarity with the Libyan people, even though she lives in the United States.

    This is people of conscious fight, if you love justice, I love democracy and if you love freedom then it’s your duty to support the people of Libya in their struggle against the Gaddafi regime who is in power for 42 years.

      Said:
      To support something just for the sake of “change” is not smart. Change without forethought will throw you from the heat directly in to the fire. The tyranny that Libyan’s suffer is true, but to have the change happen now is only going to bring in ISLAM. Islam is a repressive Theocratic form of Government that is potentially even more brutal than what they have now. Libya will become the ghetto of Iran. Think about that. Is that better? Change? Change can be for the worse. FREEDOM is not being able to do what you want. Freedom is what is naturally given to us by virtue of being HUMAN. But what does that mean? Freedom is letting people LIVE according to their own conscience, but ensuring that people RESPECT that in one another. Did Muhammad teach that with the example of his own life? No. Do people in the middle east know this is what freedom is? No. I believe that, since they have been living in a tyranny that they could not possibly understand that FREEDOM is NOT the juvenile concept of being able to do whatever one wants. But in the end, how will they learn? I’m just not sure that THIS is the right time. I’m also NOT convinced that this was not staged. The Muslim Brotherhood has had many of their supporter go on FACEBOOK and sights like that. They scour the blogs and look for weak spots. People that they can easily manipulate. From that point it becomes easy to understand how this “movement” may not be so PURE. I hope that you understand what I am typing, because if I thought for a minute that this might not be nefarious, then I would be inclined to agree with you. However, Islam is Taqiyya. It’s is the snake in the garden. Evil and vile.

    Do you know anything at all about history? & I am not talking history spoon fed by you from some religious zealot – actual history.. During y’know Muslim rule, non Muslims lived fine with Muslims – yes they paid a tax – but that was because actual Muslims also paid a tax (Zakat & normally the Zakat was more than the Jiziya) Also freedom, well I guess your definition – comes from “Christianity” which is laughable as I guess you have forgotten:
    1 Timothy 6:1, Ephesians 6:5, Ephesians 6:6, Titus 2:9 -2:10,1 Peter 2:18, 1 Corinthians 7:21,7:24 – this is from the New Testament? Really..

    Also this is from a Orthodox Jewish website & the moderator is a Rabbi:
    http://www.frumteens.com/topic.php?topic_id=239&forum_id=14&topic_title=Arabs&forum_title=Jews+and+the+Other+Nations&M=0&S=1 (Frum is Orthodox) As you can see the “Christians” were not exactly peaceful”freedom” lovers, so I suggest you re-evaluate your sources and maybe open your mind a little more. The truth will set you free..

    • txlady706 says:

      My “understanding” of both Islam and history, and no – not the spoon fed type that you refer to, comes from the HISTORY that Muhammad created. Why don’t you READ about his life and escapades. Freedom? What freedom. Do you have any concept of what that is? Your so wrapped up defending the INDEFEASIBLE slime, Muhammad, and his way of like that you miss the point. ISLAM see Mo’s life as the most holy. Compare and contrast his life with ANY other religions (real religion doesn’t rely on having to have POLICIES and POLITICS to support it, rather morals taught by real religion give moral guidance to politics, but not necessarily)holy people and their lives. Most are known for the beauty that they create and wonders in the world. ISLAM creates DUST.

      • ignorancebreedshate says:

        Have you not read the Torah in it’s entirety or the Bible? Did you miss a lot of the stories about the prophets? You claim you are Jewish, but yet you say there is no policies and politics to support “real religion”.. Have you ever once spoke to an Orthodox Rabbi? You say freedom aka:

        “OUR, the WESTs, understanding of freedom comes from the faith that either we share or is similar enough that the values translate well. The basis of Christianity comes from Judaism”

        & yet I quoted actual bible verses condoning slavery even.. & yet you ask me “Do you have any concept of what that is?” When you yourself are quite misguided as it is obvious with your comparisons.

        I can see this will not get me anywhere. Like I said re-evaluate your sources & open your mind a little more. Your “understanding” as you call it, is no excuse for an actual education.

          ignorance:
          the name suites you.

          The stories in the bible point to a DEVELOPING story. The Stories in the Bible are there to allow one to SEE the outcomes of policies. The idea is to take away the entire concept and not the literal word at every turn. If you did that, without context, then you would become —well — YOU — angry and despondent. The confusion would make anyone angry. You have no moral compass and no one cares enough for you or about you to show you what a moral compass could do for you. You must be a depressed individual. Have you tried drugs yet? Your anger, confusion, and self centered deprivation are classic.
          No one tells anyone to do any ONE thing that ISRAEL does in the Bible. Israel is rebuked many a time by g-d and punished quite often. There are only 10 very specific directions in the bible for ALL Humans. Leviticus gives 613 MITVOT. They are different for direct commands. Please, open your heart. Stop your hate. You know, even if your a Muslim, your a human being, you don’t need to be Jewish or Christian, but open your eyes, ears and mouth to the beauty, music and sweetness of LIFE. Try to understand what will create it and what will destroy it.
          Shalom
