What is my own motivation for these articles
This morning I had a look at this my own blog. When you read it, you might get a bit more strong impression than intended. I am not anti Muslim per se and I do not sympathize with the extreme right. I am a conservative democrat with many liberal viewpoints and an open mind. Mostly I am an advocate for personal freedom and rational thought. I am an agnostic but respect other people's religious beliefs as long they are rational to a certain point, where rationality of course is replaced by belief. Ie. rational to a point where they do not read the Bible or the Quaran literally. Some of the most decent people I ever met were religious. I am a great believer in old terms and concepts such as decency, honesty, morals, ethics, integrity and honor.
I am very much in favor of emigration and the mixture of cultures. We can all learn something from each other. In today's world we are all becoming neighbours. Scientifically speaking there is no such thing as different human races.
But I detest stupidity in people who have the capacity not to be stupid. I even more abhor lack of politeness and respect for the fellow human.
But I am not naive nor a saint. When threatened I will not turn my face as some Christians might. I believe in proactive stand up guys. You must defend and stand up for you rights, values, family, friends and your fellow humans.
And I feel provoked and threatened by the fanatics of this world. At the moment many of the worst call themselves Muslims and live in bigot dictatorships. This is a fact.
That is why these last days I have given so much attention to the matter of the 12 cartoons. This is also why I have been so forceful and somewhat exaggerated in my expressions. I do stand by the main view points though.
Here is part of a small "dialogue" on another blog, The Brussel Journal, I had with what I assume is a Muslim. I will let the dialogue stand by itself, but remind the reader I was a bit "hot" at the time.
