Hey, and  just how many Israeli soldiers or US drone srtikes or Jews in general are there running around Chechnya, Nigeria, Yemen, Somalia, India, Ingushetia, (where?) preventing all those otherwise impeccably liberal, woman-respecting, other-embracing followers of The Religion Of Peace from getting on calmly generating new sources of wealth and settling peacefully amongst their neighbours (both old and new) in a spirit of traditional multicultural toleration, compassion and mercy?

And if you scroll on down to June I think you’ll find evil Canadian teenagers preventing Enlightenment liberalism reaching the four corners of the world’s youngest and edgiest Abrahamic faith.

But who can concentrate on such corrupt modern notions as equality before the law and the rights of the individual when 1 ship in 6 of a ‘peace convoy’ was searched?

It’s just not humanly possible or psychologically realistic to expect such abstract thinking from the faithful.
Don’t you just love the thought of the Royal Winnipeg Analysts trying to talk the misunderstood and troubled Taliban out of its immigrant trauma?

Picture from here.

I wonder about the minds of these people - what motivates them and what they're thinking at the time. How much of the brain is being utilized [as a percentage].
