You are shamelessly proud and frightfully delusional. Most Islamic countries are presently 3 or 4 decades behind the rest of civilization, with the highest poverty and illiteracy rates on the planet. It's fine to have pride, but apparently it is blinding you to the reality of severe gender oppression, restrictions in individual rights and freedom (Saudi Arabia, etc) and religious discrimination (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran) tribal hatred (Iraq, Afghanistan), sectarian violence (Syria, Pakistan), and the Arab colonialism in Africa which is causing death and destruction in Sudan, and Malawi for example.
Don't get me wrong, I know Muslims are in deep sh*t these days. But I like to give credit where it's due. Also, I'm not proud of being Arab or Muslim. I don't have that tribal mentality. That said, no one can discount Muslims' contribution to science throughout history. People like TRD and trolls like Uzi are always saying crap like "Muslims have been killing Muslims for thousands of year" which is not true at all. Believe or not, the Middle East was prosperous and safe at one point in history, until it was destroyed by Mongols from the east and crusaders from the west.

Again, Muslim misfits taking credit for things they never followed up on."we were doing"? You were looking at the doody pile in the dirt hole you dug because that's what you were taught to do. Look at you now. You have toilet paper and modern facilities to smell your progress. You should kiss the sanitized tiles you walked on. Do you wash your hands?

Uzi, maybe...not me. I've been saying that if they weren't killing Jews they'd be killing other Muslims. There's a subtle distinction.

Are you denying that sectarian tension has existed among Muslims for the last 1,600 or so years? You'd be splitting hairs on the definition of "thousands".

So, let me see if I have this straight...

Ancient Arabs were Ferrari's until Islam came along and threw the boot onto the front driver-side tire?

AT LEAST 1600 years? Where the f*ck do you people get your facts from?
Islam has been around for barely 1450 years, and the division, or "Fitna" as it's called by Muslims, happened about 30-40 years later (I think). It was between Hassan and Hussein(sons of the fifth man of Islam, Ali)and and the Umayyads (who later became the Moors of Spain). It didn't last long, and Hassan and Hussein were betrayed by their followers from Iraq, and were eventually killed by the Umayyads. The "traitors" later became the Shia of Ali, which literally means the party/group of Ali. The reason you see Shia followers beat the sh*t out of themselves on Ashura (the day Hassan and Hussein were killed) is that they see it as a form of punishment for betraying them. After that, all the conflicts were political and small. The Shia-Sunni sh*t started again after the invasion of Iraq.

Islam explained :

A Pakistani immigrant goes to a Doctor and says "I feel terrible". The Doctor says "You need to pee and crap in a bucket for a week, Throw in a dead fish and a rotting cabbage. Put a towel over your head and inhale the vapours' for 3 days". The man does this and goes back to the Doctor and says, "I feel wonderful!! What was wrong with me?" * "You were homesick".*

OK, I rounded up...so sue me.

And I guess I owe you (and all Muslims) an apology wrecking Iraq and getting the sectarian ball rolling. Clearly, this shit is all my fault.

Great, now I'm all turned around. You like them because they have wonderful food, you just hate them because they're violent dumb asses. Talk about conflicted...who believes anything coming out of the UN?

I am happy and excited for your misery although the coincidence of this storm and your day off have me scratching my head. This is what you do with your free time...ice fishing and changing the weather? It's a good thing we're buddies.

Hey Bud. Which would bother you most? Russia and Hezbollah condemning the attack on Syria's sovereign soil or the UN declaring that the settlements are a violation of the Geneva Convention and Palestinian rights or the Egyptians denouncing violence or Hamas and Fatah kissing up in Feb? Huh? Huh?

E. None of the above.

A. "Alleged" Israeli attack
B. UN...seriously?
C. Egyptians denouncing violence as their funerals are attacked. Hah.
D. As it should be. For good or bad they can't take the next step without unification.

Okay. Do think this Coke ad to be shown during the Superbowl is racist towards Arabs? The Arab Defamation League says it makes Arabs look dumb. I kid you not. Check it out.

Y'know, I saw this in my Al Jazeera scan this morning and decided not to bring it up on account of Ahmad's breakthrough yesterday. I didn't want to rub it in that the Arab guy doesn't have a chance but I never thought it made him look dumb...just Arab.

What happens if the spot airs, the people vote, and then it turns out to have been a tortoise and hare story all along? The Arab Anti Defamation League will look pretty silly getting all insulted then I bet.

You call it breakthrough, I call it his coming out. It's no fun when you can't hate the guy. 8>)
