ask yourself

That cat-bombing bastard from Atlanta has a good post here. If you're a Muslim (or French), look at that picture and ask "Why?"

Never mind. You're probably so soaked in denial that you won't contemplate the truth. Americans walked on the moon because we had the imagination to do it, the courage to do it and the brains to do it. You people don't. That's one of the REAL reasons that you hate us so much. Pure envy.

The Muslims fucked up centuries ago when they finally succeeded in conquering Constantinople. That clever operation removed the last Christian obstacle in their way and solidified the Ottoman Empire, but it also cut the Spice Road from east to west and led to Age of Exploration. Talk about the law of Unintended Consequences.

Thanks to the fall of Constantinople, people started heading WEST in search of a new route to India and the Far East. That exploration eventually led to the founding of the United States. So I suppose, in a strange way, we have Islam to thank for that picture of a US flag on the moon.

We never could have done it without you.

Dude you should have a show on the History Channel.

Fucking brilliant. I hereby offer my thanks to Muslims everywhere for the opportunity to explore space. I recall vividly my dad setting up the old Brownie camera on a small stool in front of the TV to take pictures as Neil Armstrong took that famous first step onto our Moon. I guess I owe thanx to Allah for that memory too.

Hey, you think that's wild. Dig this. Mental Ward Churchill being sucked up to by Osama Bin Maher.
