  1. Osama Bin Laden Is Dead, Hurray!

    Not showing the body is GOOD, because it leaves some people believing he is still alive. The others who accept he is dead might seek revenge or view him as a martyr. If you think he's alive, well, that's not an issue.
  2. Egypt Is Free!

    The system which works is the preferred system. Instant democracy can get thousands of people killed. It takes time for a society to adapt and making that process happen is usually out of the hands of a single generation of men. I agree democracy is good in the West, but look at the cost to Iraq for a pseudo-democracy? Do you really care that you could vote when you watched your daughter die, had your home burned, and were forced to flee the country? The Bible and the Koran are very different animals. The Bible doesn't have an abundance of rules which actually make sense. You need to understand that the Koran is like a law book. The Bible isn't. But a Muslim will disagree with that statement. There is no need for a government of man when you have the Koran. Maybe you could find the leeway for your thinking in the hadiths or whatever (I really don't know much about Islam) but it's been shown again and again that states which adopt an Islamic system do not tend to be democratic, and do not respect Democratic traditions. An unelected Emir heads the Sharia law system, which can overrule any law from the democratic system that operates alongside it? The name of the country is Iran.
  3. Why Is Jesus White?

    There was a national geographic article a few years ago that supposedly figured out what color his skin would have been. They tracked population migrations or something. To me he looked Greek. So olive skin and curly black hair.
  4. Do You Muslims Really Believe This?

    Agnostic, you can have this argument a Christian, Muslim or Jew. Why not do it in person instead of going onto an Islamic forum to insult Islam. I'm not a Muslim, but I just want to say you will never change your mind, and the Muslims won't change their minds, and 400 other people have already come here and said the same things you are saying.
  5. Egypt Is Free!

    Tim, I am not a Muslim and I think a secular republic run by democracy is the best form of government. I am just explaining to you that your question doesn't make sense when you know a little more about Islam. Islam has it's own preset legal system which essentially can (and has in the past) be the laws for a society. In some ways the Koran is like a law book. You ask if a Muslim would want an Islamic democracy, but you fail to understand that Islam is it's own system--and Islam is not a democracy. That's no in the rule book. So, just by the fact that a country is a democracy, it is not truly Islamic. Add to that that many Muslims believe it is their religious duty to help create an Islamic state, you can see that Islam and any system which wasn't Islamic would come into conflict. And now your question: democracy vs. dictatorship. There are places where democracy won't work--where it will lead to bloodshed, corruption and chaos. In those situations a strong government seems like the only option.
  6. Egypt Is Free!

    Democracy cannot be Islamic. An Islamic state is not a democratic state. You're making the assumption that Egyptians won't elect people who eventually will take away their right to vote. Sharia law does not give you a choice to remove the law every four years--that isn't Sharia law. Your A or B question doesn't make sense.
  7. About Facebook - A Problem

    Non-muslim advice, which I think Muslims would give you: 1. Delete Facebook. It has caused you too many problems already and raised too many questions you don't want to be asked. 2. Dump your boyfriend. Islam is not about making your boyfriend happy. Islam is about you and Allah. If he would like to be there for the journey with you, he will wait and pursue you in a proper way--without being your "boyfriend."
  8. Egypt Is Free!

    Your making the assumption that a democracy won't be 'Islam friendly'. Turkey is a democracy and the military needs to keep forcing the (democratically elected) ruling party from turning Turkey into an Islamic state. Egypt is 95% Muslim, and their most established opposition group (The Muslim Brotherhood) is committed to making an Islamic state through democracy. I'm not sure if Egypt will swing in a religious direction, but the idea that democracy=secular is foolish.
  9. OK, so the protesters are justified. Is Dot still Admin here? Is he OK? What does he think? Or is this a taboo topic? Shouldn't you be happy Islamic parties will be able to openly operate in Egypt? Also... a story of what happens inside an Egyptian prison... where countless Muslims are taken to be tortured.: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetguardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/09/egypt-torture-machine-mubarak-security"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetguardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/0...ubarak-security[/url]
  10. Does a Muslim fight to protect his mother from a thief? To save his brother from torture? The corruption in Egypt is big that the government has become a thief. The police in Egypt can do anything, including torture By your thinking--a Muslim should never stand up for himself.
  11. The terror groups say that it is OK to kill any and all American citizens. What do you want every American in the world to do? Just kill themselves?
  12. You see, it is a very noble thing Muslims sacrifice in the pursuit of a more Islamic life. And that is exactly what the Afghanis will be doing under the Taliban: Sacrificing. America honestly doesn't care about making the life of the people of Afghanistan any better. America just doesn't want terrorist groups operating from Afghanistan. If there was some guarantee that the Taliban would never let terrorists groups operate from Afghanistan, the US troops would be out within a year. But there is no guarantee... so the US must install a system which WON'T allow terror groups to form. Well, that is the hope anyways. The Taliban know this also... that is why they announced that they were only interested in Afghanistan and not the rest of the world right before Obama announced a surge.
  13. Qur'an Burning Church Has Only 12 Members!

    Who cares. We are a two kuffar talking about Muslim business.
  14. Qur'an Burning Church Has Only 12 Members!

    White curtains, Looks like this Koran burning will get oodles of people to read the Koran. Including Christians. From a BBC article: Source: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetbbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-11241340"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetbbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-11241340[/url]
  15. Qur'an Burning Church Has Only 12 Members!

    These "church" people are crazy. They know it is insulting another religion, but they still do it. They know it will endanger American lives, but they still do it. They know that almost everyone condemns them, but they still do it. Why do they do it? They want the attention. They want us to pay attention to them.
