"... in many Muslim-dominated countries and clerics blasted observation of Valentine's Day as un-Islamic and warned people not to observe it.
In Pakistan, huge billboards decorated with a black heart were put up urging citizens to “SAY NO TO VALENTINE’S DAY”. There are reports of demonstrations denouncing the western festival and burning Valentine’s Day cards. Women wearing black robes held signs denouncing the tradition of Valentine's Day at many places."

LOL! Muslims are so screwed up it is almost laughable!

If muslims don't like our holidays, they don't have to observe them. But that's not good enough, they seem to think they can dictate how the rest of us live.

Fine. I don't like Eid or Ramadan. They should stop observing those immediately. I find them to be offensive.

Like Xmas and Easter, Valentine's Day is another Western capitalist excess.

So don't celebrate them. Why is this so hard for you?

Kind of like how ramadan is a big festival of prostitution, drugs and drinking. It's gotten so bad, they are now restricting women traveling there alone, without their masters leash and muzzle.

Where is the evidence for these lies if it is so widespread
and an isolated case is not evidence for "It's gotten so bad".

Introducing this Western crap into Muslim countries is similar to missionary work with Capitalism and modern day Christianity working hand in hand.

Makkah: Saudi authorities stop 1,000 Nigerian women without male relatives

http://www.asianews.it/news-en/Makkah:-Saudi-...

Makkah (AsiaNews/ Agencies)- Concerned about illegal immigration, Saudi authorities have stopped a thousand Nigerian women on their way to Makkah for Hajj.

Ostensibly, the women had violated an Islamic rule whereby each woman had to be accompanied by a male relative. However, the authorities waved through women 45 and over, stopping only those aged 20 to 35, who, for the past ten days, have been waiting to be repatriated at the airports in Jeddah and Madinah.

Nigeria's ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Abubakar Shehu Bunu, said he had made a formal protest to the foreign affairs office in the capital, Riyadh.

He complained about the discriminatory treatment given to Nigerian women pilgrims and the violation of an agreement between the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria and the Saudi authorities to allow visas to be issued to Nigerian women going to Makkah as long as they were accompanied by their local Hajj committee officials.

For their part, Saudis complain that the agreement has for years favoured illegal immigration. In fact, many Nigerian women come into the country for Hajj but end up looking for work, often falling into the prostitution racket.

"Kind of like how ramadan is a big festival of prostitution, drugs and drinking. It's gotten so bad,"

So this pitiful comment about the possibility of some Muslim women becoming prostitutes justifies your above remarks.
More Islamophobic B/S.

Still too lazy to look for yourself. Not a surprise.

In Ramadan, rule-breakers pushed underground

http://news.yahoo.com/ramadan-rule-breakers-p...

In Ramallah, where devout and secular live side-by-side, some cafes leave their doors coyly half open, a sign that it's business as usual. One restaurant offers free soup for Muslims wishing to break their fast after sundown. Other customers can order booze.

~~~~~~~~~~
I've personally seen muslims using alcohol and drugs during ramadan - and all year long. Right here in the US, Dearborn to be specific.

People who are addicted to drugs or alcohol wont be able to give it up for a month. Deny it all you want, it doesn't change the facts. Your namecalling proves that you know you are wrong, so you resort to lies and personal attacks.

LMAO

Typical of a muslime hypocrit to whine and gripe about namecalling, when it's all he does! Lame dude. Really lame. I know that you are trying to play the victim, but you have failed. Again.

You should try dealing with facts instead of the fantasy world you are dwelling in.

You bring up a valid point. But try to consider what Valentine's day is to a child.

I remember in grammar school as a small child getting valentine's cards from girls I was much to shy to approach. How delighted I was to know others cared about me!

It helped me to learn a lot about LOVE. And it helped me to feel LOVABLE!

Take away the greed of the capitalist system and That's all valentine's day is about, LOVE.

Great post GrandpaSmurf, but that animal is all for marrying off young girls to old men, because it "helps their family financially". Sounds just like prostitution. For sure there is no love involved.

Read his words for yourself.

It seems you had parental problems if you needed to be loved by others at such a young age.
