Homophobia, Islamophobia and more nonsense

Shavuah Tov! Shabbat has just ended and it's time to blog.
Yours truely is honoured to be the subject of a post on another blog, however, this particular disertation is a ridiculous diatribe that accuses me of being a homophobe, islamophobe, an anti-semite (?) and a mean poopy head. Let's look at these claims one by one:
1) Anti-semite:
Bar Kochba wants the Jews in Israel to continue getting themselves killed under the retarded leadership of rich statesmen who send young men and women to die daily. Has the estimed Baron ever read my blog? Why would I, as a Jew, want other Jews to be killed? What I advocate is for Israel to harshly retaliate against its anti-semitic genocidal foes and wipe them out, thereby preventing more Jewish blood being spilled.
2) Homphobe:
What prompted this serious charge? A comment on a post about the "Pride" Parade parade. An abomination... So sad that people are perverting the holy gift of sexuality that G-d gave them. It's a Shame Parade is G-d's eyes. Hardly hateful... If saying that I oppose homosexual behaviour is hateful, the I guess that I must be a bigot. Homosexual behaviour is against the Torah, against Hashem and is absolutely immoral- pick up a Bible. I don't hate homosexuals though, because there is no such thing as a homosexual, just people who engage in homosexual activity. People are more than just their sexual preferences and gays are people, created in G-d's image, who unfortunately happen to pervert G-d's holy gift of sexuality. I stand by my comments. Homosexuality is wrong- the Torah is reason enough for me. Gays, though, are just people deserving compassion and guidance.
Here are some excellent sites:
- People Can Change
- Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality
- National Association for the Research and Treatment of Homosexuality
3) Islamophobe:
How many times do I have to repeat that not every single Muslim is a terrorist? Just like not every Jews keeps kosher, not every Muslim wages Jihad. If you claim that Jihad means 'internal spiritual struggly', fine, but the onus is on you to prove it. How did Osama bin Laden, Hamas, Ahmadinejad, get to be such Misunderstanders of Islam? What about Islam's violent past and violent Scriptures? Any Muslim who rejects Jihad and Islamic supremacism is fine by me and I welcome him in the fight against hatred and intolerance. These Muslims who feel that al-Qaeda is "hijacking" Islam need to stand up, denounce terror, and prove to other Muslims why al-Qaeda and Hamas are wrong theologically, using the Qur'an and the Ahadith. Denying that there is a problem will not solve anything and will not make jihadis go away.
I would love nothing better than for Israel to live in peace with its Muslims neighbours, for democracy and tolerance to flower throught the Dar-al-Islam. I believe that most Muslims women would like a life that does not begin with a clitorectomy and end with being stoned to death for being raped. The real Islamophobes are those who deny that there is any such basis for this in Islam, thereby allowing for the greatest of savageries to be perpetrated in Allah's name. Baron, you are the real Islamophobe as you would like for Muslims to continue to live in abject poverty, be raised in a culture that worships death and continue to be at the mercy of despots and dictators. There certainly is a flaw in the Islamic and Arabis cultures. It is no coincidence that the UN reported that more books are translated into Greek, which has 25 million speakers, each year than Arabic which has 400 million speakers. The UN also reported that more books are translated into Spanish each year that into Arabic in the past 1000 years. Clearly there is something deficient in this culture.
Baron, it is the easiest thing to call someone a bigot or a racist without listening to them. Please, listen and you might just learn something.

P.S. BHG, I'll respond to you tag later, I'm tired.

The Muslims won't stand for that. They're filled with hatred for everyone except Muslims--particularly for the Jews.

Don't worry yourself about that disgusting site. Not worth it.

You certainly have more friends than enemies here in the blogosphere!

Bar Kochba

You should take the criticism from the source. Your critic is a typical Union Square Park NYC freak. In Union Square one can find all kinds of idiots espousing Communism and whatever form of anarchism is fashonable at the moment.

These people are the dregs of NYC and our version of rednecks. Our Red rednecks are anti-semitic, self righteous and more ignorant than real rednecks.

Besides, it look like they're into some kind of Jewish counter-culture who get their kicks out of slamming their betters.
