Lefties, aka Progressives, are always attacking America and Christianity. My country wrong or wrong and the Crusades are the fault of America and the reason why the radical Muslims attack us.
Given that, in too many places, stoning females, hanging gays and honor killings are happening, you would think anyone who wears "tolerance" and "religious rights" like a cloak would find time to condemn such actions.
But they don't.
At first I decided that the reason was that Progressives hate Amereica's culture. Thus "an enemy of my enemy is my friend" explanation covers it. But it goes deeper than religion and culture.
An Islamic conference in the Spanish city of Granada has called on Muslims around the world to help bring about the end of the capitalist system.
The call came at a conference titled 'Islam in Europe' attended by about 2,000 Muslims.
Earlier this week Granada saw the first official opening of a mosque in Spain for more than 500 years.
The keynote speaker at the conference was Umar Ibrahim Vadillo, leader of the worldwide Muslim group known as Murabitun.
The group is strongly opposed to capitalism.
Mr Vadillo said America's economic interests had become the religion of the world and that people slavishly adjusted their lifestyles to suit the capitalist model.
But he said capitalism cannot sustain itself and is bound to collapse.

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
