Separate But Equal Rises Again

I wrote recently about the Israeli De Facto Apartheid State. What's even more frightening is that there are now calls from the right wing of American politics to impose a similar system here:

There is more here.

If we continue on this path, the America that we think we are protecting won't be worth protecting anymore.

Let's go back to what radio blowhard Mike Gallagher says at the end of that clip:

"Yeah, and let's not make the Muslim world mad at us."

He says this sarcastically, as though that's the last thing we should worry about. But guess what? It's one of the first things we should be worrying about. There are a billion Muslims in the world. Why on earth would we want to piss all of them off? Does Gallagher think he's some sort of John Wayne? Does he realize that most Muslims don't hate the US-yet?

This guy sounds so tough, but, unsurprisingly, although being of prime military age during the first Gulf War, as well as during the last decade of the Cold War, he never bothered to join the military and serve his country. It sure is easy to brag, bluster and swagger on TV wearing makeup, when you're not the one who is going to get your legs blown off in some foreign country fighting the people you advocate pissing off.
