Do As I Say Not As I Do

I always wondered if my mom really believed in that when she used to scream it. Now I realize thats something said when you have no true defense.  If you cant abide by your own standards and uphold what you deem most important, how then can you expect an onlooker to practice what you preach.

“We will respect your great religious traditions, whose principles of equality and compassion are essential to Iraq’s future. We will help you build a peaceful and representative government that protects the rights of all citizens. And then our military forces will leave.” – George Bush 4/10/2003

We were told we were invading to give their people what has now become threatened in our own land. Who will invade and save us?

This man, an Egyptian native, states he defected from his home nation to enjoy freedom. In the same sentence he explains that, he attempts to justify taking that freedom from someone else.

(00:40 – 01:02) “I’m from Egypt, we’re not allowed to build churches, were not allowed uh to have our voice heard. We have no freedom at all, that’s why we came to the United States, we came to United States to enjoy the freedom. But in the mean time, you come in here to America, to slave us back to Islam. To take our freedom away and we say enough is enough” – Citizen Opposed to Mosque near WTC

(00:33-00:41) “Islam did not attack our country on 9/11, but rather a mutant, militant and perverse strand of Islam is responsible…” – Rabbi in support of Mosque

A voice of reason? ;
