    I find Larry Pratt's reasoning very biased and flawed. He is citing isolated incidents of violence attributed to the Islamic faith and claiming that these violent tendencies infect at least 1% of the Muslim population in the US. This kind of writing breeds racism and bigotry. Although I am very much a proponent of an armed society, I believe we are just a s likely to be stabbed for our cellphone as be blown up for our faith.

    I believe in equal opportunity. My bullets are blind to race, creed, or religion!

    What the? I thought LEOs are suppose to watch out for each other. What kind of district director would do that to LEOs? Ibig sabihin pag election, halt lahat ng undercover operations? Gun ban na nga, hinto pa ang mga operations ng pulis! Paboritong panahon talaga ng kriminal at sindikato ang election period!! :brickwall:

    Amen. Larry Pratt's reasoning is yet another example of tolerated racism after 9/11. Before the attacks, the people the majority targeted and blamed for violence and crime were the Hispanics and the Blacks, but now the bullsye is painted on Muslims.

    He should also do a report on the attacks done by people like Timothy McVeigh and other Rightist (who is credited as being Roman Catholic - Source: http://www.nndb.com/people/936/000031843/) militia men on their own government to make it a balanced report!

    Gents, Larry maybe biased with his views against that religion.

    Ayaw ko talaga sana patulan itong issue na ito, pero PUNTA kayo rito kung nasaan kami nina Mikol at Toxic. Para ma-feel niyo gaano sila ka-warm at ka-pleaseant sa ating mga Pilipino at Christiano.

    Subukan niyo lang at kayo na ang magsabi or magkwento rito sa boards. SUBOK LANG.

    I might not have worked overseas in the Middle East as you and other members of the board have sir, but I have been around them and their families both here in the Philippines and the US.

    All I'm expressing is my opinion that to counter xenophobia with even more xenophobia/racism is a recipe for disaster.

    I'm more than familiar with the 'tender affections' with which
    many Muslims regard me and mine, just for my Christian faith.
    I'm STILL sure there are many more Muslims out there who are fine Filipinos,
    and that I just haven't had the chance to meet a single one of them
    in the past 40-plus years.

    Anyway, like Pratt's bias(es), it's all irrelevant in the crunch.
    When anyone's trying to harm me and mine, I can't give a rat's
    left testicle WHY they're doing it:

    "Becase I'm Catholic"; "because I have a nice cellphone"; ad absurdum.
    All that negative politics and socio-religious prejudice goes
    right out the window when you try to launch lead effectively.

    Maybe the same should apply to our posts here, 'di ba?
    :)

    The link above written by Larry Pratt lists about 15 incidences of "murders" committed by Muslims from l994 to 2007...Less than 2 people killed in a span of 14 years...After 9/11 US of A morphs into ala RSA but this time object of hate and despise is no longer the Afro-Americans thanks to MLK Jr. but the faithful of Allah...Pratt concludes that with these 15 incidences he identified, Muslims are going to run "amok" sooner or later...Does he(Pratt)bother to count how many more people of different faiths who ran also "amok" and killed scores, too.

    With what's happening around the globe; killings everyday...I'm beginning to think that what really evolved was the "Planet of the Apes"; only that we think we are "Humans"...Mass Delusion?

    Our world is getting crazier and crazier..."Whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first drive crazy"

    Well your right, naalala ko nga yung isang famous quote:

    "An eye for an eye, makes the world blind" Gandhi.

    My friend just got into a horrible and disastrous situation here with the religious police (Mutawa) who is the LAW of the LAND, and he had to give up his fat paycheck, invested things in his house (appliances) and gave up his financial backbone because the religious police here does not listen to arguments and his company is a rat's a%$^&. Kaya siguro easily irritated ako kaagad sa issue na ito.

    I did not mean to get into an argument with you Kaiser, pardon my heat.

    Fake Al Qaeda

    "Ana raicha Al Qaeda" is colloquial for "I'm going to the toilet". A very common and widespread use of the word “Al-Qaeda” in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb “Qa'ada” which mean “to sit”, pertinently, on the “Toilet Bowl”. In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: “Al-Qaeda” also called the "Hamam Franji" or foreign toilet, and "Hamam Arabi" or “Arab toilet” which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called "Ma Qa'adia" or "Little Qaeda".
    So, if you were forming a terrorist group, would you call yourself, "The Toilet"?

    No problem Sir Charlie! I'm sorry to hear about what happened to your friend. Maybe you can share more when you come back and pass by the shop.

    I don't know about ME but I worked in Northern Nigeria where Muslim faith is dominant. People are friendly whether you're Catholic, Buddhist or Muslim. It could be a race thing and not religion in the ME.

    back to topic - IIRC, pacheco's aim is to get guns out of the streets. keeping one within residence is ok for him, uhhh, i think.

    bakit nga ba sa TV arresting officers wear civilian clothes lang? iba naka tsinelas lang. is this really acceptable or may standard rule?

    Nyaaarrrrkkkk...Danton Remoto is actually running for the Senate? Or a party list lang?

    He was a professor of mine at Ateneo, brilliant guy, but his alternative lifestyle and inate kakulitan made his classes a bit disconcerting for some of us.

    IS he also anti-gun like Nandy Pacheco?

    Baka undercover - you know, he was already under the covers when the other cops told him to come with them to do the arrest. Kaya naka-pambahay!:rofl:

    Binoy is right though, LEO's like Saki and Punisher should be able to clarify this to us...
