I have been staying away from politics for the past year after I came to the realization that you have to fix yourself first before you can fix the world.

But this video deserves some attention, because it’s something new. It’s a propaganda piece, meaning that it’s making an one-sided argument, but with sophisticated techniques borrowed from the West.

The closing line was – “as soon as you promise to get out of ours”.

So you can be left alone to treat women as cattle, behead anyone who makes jokes about Muhammad and indoctrinate your children that no greater glory exists than dying for Allah?

I know we in the West are no saints. I’m so sick and tired of hearing about the horrible things the U.S. Government do domestically and aboard that I’ve stopped following news of any sort.

But honestly ask yourself – which society would you and your family rather live in? What human values are we willing to sacrifice in the name of religion? Do you think it would’ve been possible to make the same clip with a Muslim woman?

The jihadists are right about one thing tho – some things are worth dying for. For me, it’s fundamental human rights and freedom of my loved ones.

What do you think theirs are?
