Climate Change Another Excuse for Muslim Religious Violence

by Lewis Loflin

Summary: problems in the Middle arise from religious violence and overpopulation. The press ignores this in its reporting.

The Leftwing media attempts to claim the very real problems in the Muslim world and Muslims are things they happen to oppose in general or deflect the discussion to salvage multiculturalism.

They claim Muslims are victims of colonialism that ended by 1960. Or the deluge of Middle East migrants are "climate refugees" because of our sins of fossil fuels and cow farts - climate justice now!

They claim Muslims are endless victims of persecution (very rare here) - bacon left on a doorstep or seeing a Mohammed cartoon doesn't constitute persecution.

The question is why does the Left do this? How can they protect a religion that promotes social norms these atheist or earth-worshipping zealots clearly reject with believing Christians and Jews?

The answer comes from PEW: 66% U.S. Muslims identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party. 67% prefer a bigger government providing more services.

These claims of climate change and colonialism are rubbish. It's about votes. Climate has nothing to do with failed cultures and out of control birth rates in Muslim nations. Fundamentalist (not the nonsense term 'radical') Islam is NOT a religion of peace any more than the Old Testament was by modern American standards or Christianity was in the Middle Ages.

That has led to exploding Muslim persecution religious minorities in most Muslim nations even once-secular Turkey.

But most individual Muslims are peaceful people - the left only identifies by groups not individuals - easier to organize and radicalize for Leftist' causes.

Thus scrutiny of any problems within manufactured "protected classes" or their behavior is treated as a personal attack on all members. That too is irrational rubbish.

Many regions in the Middle East and Central Asia have been becoming more arid for thousands of years and has always suffered droughts. The region is covered with abandoned archeological sites dating back centuries where nobody could live today.

Irrigation projects in Turkey have cut water flow to the Tigris and Euphrates in Iraq, Syria, etc.

In one news story, I read about a farmer in Syria that lost his water supply (a well) and this forced him, his two wives, and 12 children to leave their land.

What am I missing here? That is the real problem - Islamic culture and massive population growth. His problems have nothing to do with French or British rule because neither he nor his family was alive before 1960.

Averaged over most Muslim nations listed population growth averaged 428% or as high as 800% in 58 years! Problems in these already poor, dysfunctional nations 60 years ago are far worse today. Most Muslims today were not even alive in 1960.

Never let facts get in the way of social justice or a Democrat Party vote.
