I could not relate what you were saying to the facts of the world. I am quite sure I do not have
a bias against Islamic human rights myself. I wonder sometimes why they let themselves be treated the way they are treated in their own countries. It is kind of like a Marxist dictatorship with some added style and logic, but not enough to convince me it's better than our
modern approach which has a way for rich folks to sue. Clearly, Osama Bin Laden had enough money to sue someone. You apparently don't mind that he did not try that first. If you mean that Islam's tenets are worth fighting for, we have at least identified a coherent topic. But is that what you're saying? Or, if you're saying the oil-rich Arabian countries are threatened and were just fighting back with the war on terror, then I would appreciate a coherent description of that.
I don't know whether you can make a good legal case in the court of fairness. I do know that
propaganda is usually circulated by all wealthy spheres of influence..."propaganda" meaning "their own honestly-held version of things" and sometimes a little fluff too.
