I really think Trump is extremely dangerous.
So I am terrified to admit that I do agree with him (omg) on one point at least. He is quoted saying “Islam hates us” talking to CNN in NY. Then argues his thesis by saying that Islam is characterized, in part, because of “the great contempt ” towards the Western world, and this inevitably makes it “very difficult to separate” the religion from radical Islam.
As much as I personally despise him, I must agree.
It is owed to – here it comes again – political correctness that it is frowned upon to consider it at least possible that in their mosques the muslims do actually not like the west just like many of us don’t like them. Cmon, be honest. They are strange to us as we are to them and it takes education, broadmindedness and self control to keep this primal fear of the strange at bay. It is an intellectual feat and not everyone is good at this.
That is a problem.
By the way, ever been to China? They don’t really “like” us either. They envy some liberties and wealth (money and power are very important in China) but our culture, the “who we are” does not impress them.
