    When hundreds of thousands of refugees are suffering and dieing no thanks to Western interventions you have people rescuing DOGS all the way in Turkey instead. Where are people's priorities!? Especially those who constantly boast of superior western secular liberalism humanism. Is this humanism?
    So because humans are fighting (as they have been doing for thousands of years) animals should be left helpless and hurt as a result of human conflict?
    Screw anyone who makes out that animals aren't worthy of protection or care, they're just as bloody worthy as we are.
    ALSO. There are loads of charities, appeals, rescue plans, immigration laws supporting refugees and aiding their recovery and often rehousing them in safer countries - which by the way, is creating loads more problems - look at the Cologne incident, but that's a whole different thread.

    Animals are amazing, dogs especially and ironically, the fact that we do pour so much money and energy into animal protection, care and rescue does actually demonstrate the ''superior'' (as you called it) modern attitudes of the UK and USA. I can tell a hell of a lot about a person by their attitudes towards animals.

    Hugs for everyone who loves dogs

    Sexually assaulting women is part of radical Islam
    (Original post by Arsenal96)
    You need to read again. I said radical Islamists participate in sexual abuse. Then she said she wanted evidence for that. It's not rocket science
    Ok, so I took your advice and read again. I've quoted what you did say because you've obviously forgotten. You said sexual assault was part of radical islam, not just that they participate in it. When she asked for evidence of this, she was asking for evidence of assault being apart of Islam. No one, I repeat, no one was saying radical islamists don't participate in sexual assault. I then said that radical islamists are not the only ones to participate in sexual assault. It's not rocket science.

    Dogs are much better than the migrants who come to Europe as benefit scroungers. All dogs ask for is food and love.


    So why not?


    And before anyone asks, I'd happily take in rescue dogs from the Middle East. Arab men who are too wimpish to fight for their country? Nah Benedict Cumberbatch can.
    Or Jude Law. Let him take a dozen or so into his mansion.

    How is it racist?

    Middle Eastern migrants did cause assaults in Cologne
    Muslims were involved in Rotherham
    The killers in the Charlie Hebdo attacks/Paris massacres were Muslims (radicalised)
    Because of the migrants the centre of Cologne has become a no go area for women at night

    All the celebrities who signed a letter to the PM can do the same. I find it so ironic they are all for bringing in the migrants because they've got money in their bank accounts and a private jet to go off if England gets screwed up by the migrants.

    Fantastic... what a wonderful charity and work they are doing.

    Maybe Turkey could stop embezzling ISIS oil and facilitating them whilst their leader is busy throwing journalists in jail and turning the country into a theocratic Islamic hellhole and could spend a little bit of their money on helping its dogs or at least neutering them so their suffering can end.

    Many of them are from Africa and Asia amigo. Sure, there may be a degree of cultural intolerance and xenophobia involved in the disquiet but that's a different proposition

    Intolerance and xenophobia is low key racism

    I'd agree they might have their priorities a bit mixed up, but since I'm not for importing large tides of people either I can't really knock someone spending their own time and money saving dogs that they'll have to keep and pay for, aside from the ethical criticism that really they technically could be helping thinking feeling human beings with aid.

    I know what you mean, but technically this is of course incorrect and it's important to get this right. Intolerance, fear/hatred, and arbitrary belief in blanket superiority, are somewhat interrelated, if certainly not synonymous, themes :beard:

    Of course it doesn't. But Arab cultures are normally sexist and misogynistic.

    True.

    But I can always look at the human rights record in Arab countries and they're pretty much always lowest in the world
