yes i realise that you intend it as response to Nadine's stupid question but think about it, how does that advance the sum of human understanding

It's really not that complicated. Here it is again:

"Nadine's question would be wholeheartedly approved of by FL and the mainstream media. My question would rightly be scorned (and probably evoke instant permanent banning) by FL and the media."

One cannot even begin to analyze American politics until one understands the inherent biases of our political community. On the topic of the Middle East, this example speaks volumes.

Nadine's question is not significant. It is the reaction to her question that informs us.
