People are Really, Really Nice
People are Really, Really Nice

By Arlene Peck

I am going change my attitude and adopt a kinder, gentler one. I have
concluded that it will take less stress and hostility to view the world in
the same way as the benevolent media and all those good kind people who really, really do not like being politically incorrect. Thinking that most of the world just 'didn't get it' and were too stupid or corrupt beyond belief was taking its toll on me. I do not handle stress well. I'm a
giver.

Why do I say this? Well, for instance, I remember a time not so long ago, when old people could count on getting their Social Security, and the Constitution wasn't under siege by the ACLU and their ilk against anyone with the audacity to mention the name of a higher power. Hell, I even remember when people were not afraid to leave their houses and not lock their doors. You'd send your kids out to play and the rule was, "Be home before dark!"

So, when I thumb through the newspaper and see every page filled with the daily horrors ,world-wide ,of daily bombings, beheadings or whatever this 'peaceful Muslim culture' has done to destroy our world as we know it, I ponder. I shake my head in absolute wonderment that there are still people "out there" who from now on, I am going to think, are very, very nice and not morons because they can really negotiate with these cretins and make them behave. Yeah, right.

I watched ex-president Jimmy Carter , who never met a terrorist that he did not bond with or an Israeli who he did not think needed his destructive guidance. I reminisce how nice it was during Carter's inauguration when he had the audacity to walk down the main drag in Washington holding his wife's hand while waving to the crowd. Nobody even thought of blowing up the in-coming President of the United State as he strolled down the street. In fact, I do not even recall the word 'terrorism' being a mainstay in our vocabulary at that time.

Has that ever changed! When George W. was being inaugurated, there was more security surrounding him and the entire city of Washington, D.C. than probably the combined forces we now have stationed in Iraq. Does that provoke unfavorable world opinion? Naw, it is just another fact of life that we have all learned to live with since that fateful day on September 11. Folks, that was our wake-up call! Yet, there are too many who have already forgotten the message.

Much of Europe is no more. Paris? Forget it. The same can be said for
Holland, Austria, and Spain, - they are all well on their way to being
obsolete as viable nations. Even here, the Arab culture leaves no doubt
about the fact that the goal of the Islam is not to live in harmony and
join the melting pot of the world or United States. Instead, it has to
multiply and terrorize the citizens into submission. The entire Muslim
culture is based on submission. Starting with their women who are not
treated even as well as their farm animals.

But, hey, with my new attitude, such mundane things like how every waking hour of every day in our culture is being consumed with fighting the hate the Arab world has brought into our lives isn't going to concern me. I am going to be sweet,and instead of thinking evil thoughts about savage barbarians who live to die and drag everyone in their wake along with them, I am going to change my un-PC attitude.

In days past, I did not think that terrorists who shoot babies in their beds
and chase them around the schools with rifles deserved nice treatment. Now? I might just go down and rally about how terrorists should be given the protections of the Geneva conventions and other niceties,despite their preponderance for targeting civilians and beheading captives. When my President gives speeches that we are going to open our purses and hearts, I think I felt as the many other taxpayers who are more concerned about 'No child left behind in American schools: I didn't give a diddly-squat whether these cretins were thinking kindly about us. However now, that is all over. From now on, I am going to be happy for the Iraqis who now have such a democratic society even when they blow up the schools that we are building for their children.

Not that they would notice, but illiteracy in the Arab world is at an all
time high and rising rapidly, with the out- of-control rise in population.
It's possible when your allowed four wives with an average of ten children each. Since they keep their women pregnant, barefoot and out of schools, over half of them are not even able to read or write. At the pace, they're going in the Arab world, now, it will take roughly 30 years to wipe out basic illiteracy.

And, when we sent over another $350 million dollars to Mohamed Abbas aka whatever, I didn't even reflect on how maybe President Bush ought to consider insisting that Ms. Suha Arafat might be asked to open the secret vaults and removing such a paltry sum out of her eight to eleven billions that she's already stashed away previously. I will forget I ever mentioned that it is time we invested in America's future.

Why should I read headlines that speak of the "New demands on Israel for peace"? In addition, why should I feel alarm over my belief that Abbus 'what's his name' is really Arafat in a suit? Why would it matter that this new 'peace-keeper' replacement of the father of terrorism, Arafat, earned his doctorate for a thesis on Holocaust denial?

I also won't let it bother me that he was the financial muscle behind the
murders at the Olympics in Munich. Sure, if Israel caves in just one more
time, opens the jails to let out another thousand terrorist to join the
Israeli work force, this time, it will be different. Especially if the
people of Israel give in to just a "few more" conditional demands for
peace. Maybe moving out a few hundred thousand Jews and turning over more Israeli real estate to these "peaceful Palestinians " isn't such a bad idea, huh? What is wrong with the mentality of the men who are leading Israel?
Gawd!

I worry about our elections, not how many Palestinians and Iraqis are
disappointed or lacking the necessities. I worry about many things, but
savage, barbaric people who want to kill us do not worry me in the same
manner.I worry that the countries of good people such as the Dutch, and a dozen other countries that are on their way out will not wake up in time. They will fail to realize that the Islamic culture, all 1.3 billion of them, are so dysfunctional and dangerous that life, as we know it, is very much in danger.

Columnist Ann Coulter wrote, "When there is a 100 percent chance of being hijacked by an Arab Muslim Extremist, it ceased to be a profile. It's called a description of the suspect". Yet, not all those 'nice people' in
those transitional countries want to tell it like it is. Maybe, from now on
I ought to refer to the savages who we are watching on our daily news, in a kinder, gentler, manner. Insurgents.. now that's a 'nice' word.


A recent article in the Sunday Los Angeles Times, written by an unbiased journalist, I am sure, by the name of Ashraf Khalil, wrote "The Power of Anger! Displaced from dominance, minority scorns vote but is still courted." It was how the role of outsider is a strange one for most of the Sunni Arabs in Iraq and how we need to be kinder and gentler to these disenfranchised people. I am going to be like Ann Frank and think that people are really, really nice.


So, maybe from now on, I ought to tone down my insistence that the media, and everybody within their earshot ought to get honest and fair, and take notice that Israel isn't the problem. According to the doctrine of these savage sub-humans who are swarming into our lives at an alarming rate and destroying everything in their wake, they want everyone who is not them, dead.dead...dead! However, it is not a nice thing to say for a nice person such as I am. Shame on me for thinking 'that' way.
