    Kitty is very fond of prattling on about Muslims not using the term ‘infidel’ to describe Westerners. Apparently it’s a construct I’ve created to support my rabid Islamophobia according to her. As usual she is either mistaken or confused.

    Quote:

    ”In a later statement, the group identified the seven suicide bombers by their noms de guerre, and specified which of them had gone to which target on what it called “the infidel holiday.”

      Corky get out a bit more, expand your mind, the right’s fixation with Muslims is unhealthy in fact its downright boring.I have a mosque 500 metres away no problem, except their traffic quiet polite people,no feral rightwing knuckledraggers there.

        Great advice, Lurchy. However, you need to apply it to yourself. I have a point. You don’t. Relying on Kiwi Blog, The Whaler and Righties for something to post about isn’t healthy.

        I have an acquaintance who lives next to a mosque. He’s never had a problem with them. They are nice and quiet. However, inside the mosque, there has been angst with Maori Muslims wanting to take over. That has been repelled so far by the majority of the congregation.

        I make two points:

        1-Looks can be deceiving.
        2- Where do you think many young Muslims become radicalised in the West? Especially in Europe. Do you know that radical Imams have preached in NZ mosques to young Muslims right under the noses of our Intelligence agencies?

      Corky is inventing things and putting words in my mouth again.Pathetic.

      You must think that I won’t know what I have said. Don’t lie when the person you’re lying about is reading the falsehoods.

      At no time have I claimed that you made that up; another lie. What I have said is that most Muslims don’t call all non-Muslims ‘infidels’, which is true. The radical ones do, the moderate ones don’t. To say that Muslims do this is an absurd generalisation, like claiming that ‘Christians’ call Jews Yids and Christ-killers because some bigots do.

      The number of times that you or someone you know just happens to have personal knowledge of whatever the topic happens to be (you even know the family of the man who was on the news for abusing the mosque-goers and kicking the flowers) are too numerous to be remotely credible. Who told your acquaintance all this ?

        Maori Muslims are a small % of NZ Muslims and about .2% of Maori.

        Trying to take over ? Yeah, right.

        Stop trying to vilify Muslims generally and NZ ones in particular. You seem to have forgotten the massacre a few weeks ago.

      Corky will no doubt prattle on as he accuses others of doing.

      If I had to choose between that lot, gang members (not just of those two races) would be automatically crossed off the list.

        Corky is sometimes half-Maori, at other times he abuses them and uses offensive racist language about them. His race seems to be changeable,

    Has this piece appeared in the NZ media?

    ‘The clash between the dominant and entrenched British diaspora in New Zealand and the upstart Chinese one is part of this very dangerous struggle. At this stage the indications are that the New Zealand elite will handle things badly.’

      How dare he call Chinese people upstarts in that insulting way ? Some will be by the law of averages, most won’t be by the same law.

      Reading it sounds like it’s a propaganda piece for the Chinese Communist media influence campaign
