So you want to show yourself that Muslims are torturers huh! This story has nothing to do with Islam. How do you know they're Muslim? We treat the vulnerable with kindness because we fear God, unlike you. Prophet Mohammad PEACE BE UPON HIM said to a disobedient servant "If it were not for the fear of retaliation on the Day of Resurrection, I would have beaten you with this miswak (tooth-cleaning twig)"

Because she read the story?

from ninemsn:

"The report came as another Sri Lankan housemaid who had been working in Kuwait accused her employer of driving 14 wire nails into her body as punishment for failing in her work ...

"In August, another housemaid complained her Saudi employer drove 24 nails into her arms, legs and forehead as punishment. Most of them were removed by surgeons in Sri Lanka."

I've been in both countries and most, if not all, of the citizens of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia are muslims, and this wouldn't be the first time non-muslim foreign "employees" have complained abt abuse from their muslim employers.

They're not muslim and non-muslim and they weren't tortured because they were infidels. Islam asks Muslims to treat their housemaids with kindness.

You may roll in the mud. Our prophet peace be upon him once said to his disobedient servant "If it were not for the fear of retaliation on the Day of Resurrection, I would have beaten you with this miswak (tooth-cleaning twig)". We are not allowed to beat anyone.

Qur'an 9:5 "When the sacred forbidden months for fighting are past, fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."

If we want to judge Islam dont look at the people instead look at the authentic source i.e quran and the Hadith of prophet Muahmmed.

Very often the western media pickup the black sheeps in a muslim community and portrays them as exemplary muslims to maligned Islam.

If Islam degrades Women why is that 3/4th of the new converts to Islam since 9/11 are women?

These weird nail stories are just like the strange newsbits one sees in US newspapers.

I hope the perps of these things are prosecuted.

I don't think the rights of minorities or the low paid are well guarded in muslim places.

Indeed, what 3-step procedure does the qu'ran allow a muslim husband to do with a wife who has displeased him?

Why in the world wouldn't we judge Islam by what it produces?
When my TV won't produce good sound, I say I have a bad TV?
Why should Islam get a pass. I can't read Arabic and I'm told you have to read the Quran in it's original language to get the 'True Meaning'. Well I assume the OBL reads the Quran in Arabic and look what it has done to him.
And they you end your post with a totally baseless statement about women and you wonder why we judge Islam the way we do,

What does the religion of violence teach about:
http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/Quran/023-v...

The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, most of the verses of violence in the Quran are open-ended, meaning that the historical context is not embedded within the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.

Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. This proclivity toward violence - and Muhammad's own martial legacy - has left a trail of blood and tears across world history.

Sap headed duffer, why are you harping on the same sting? you must diversify your beliefs otherwise it will cause your mind to loose reality and manifest your own visions... they may appear as though they are from God.
