Funny you should call someone else a Nazi, since your extremist agenda is as close to Nazi philosophy as a goat is to his beard.

Ethnic minorities? LOL

Your jihadi cohorts' first order of business is to force every ethnic minority in sight to convert to their brand of intolerance and if they object, then behead them in the nearest public square.

Just like all the other war technologies US have used it has come back to bite them Drone strikes will be one of them dont u worry. Ur racist rants about Arabs just shows that u r here not have a intellectual discussion but to show in someway that ur a superior unemployed inbred who lives in a small town and has too much time on his hand.

My extremist agenda is as close to Nazi philosophy? And wot exactly do u think my agenda is again? Or ur just thinking from Uranus. Jihadi cohorts order every ethnic minority to their brand? And where was that from ur alcoholic friend? There r minorities fighting alongside the Jihadis if they were forced to a brand the I am pretty sure they wudnt fight with the Jihadis for starters ur head needs to be analyzed I think ur still stuck in panzee mode. Public beheadings is a part of capital punishment to warn people not commit a major crime like rape, pedophilia, murder. Wot happens in ur democratic brand. Justice for the criminals? spend 2 yrs in jail and no worries ur free to go.

Its not an insult, I'm calling you out for what you really are... Your the one with a shrunken intellectual capacity, you say democracy can't work in the middle east. Yes maby in its raw form, but their are principals that need to be carried through for the sake of the well being of every person... Everyone should have the right to practice their beliefs and customs to the full without any fear of attack or punishment... Religions should have the opportunity to promote their beliefs to the masses and have freedom of speech without government interference, but rather have protection provided if any volatile situation were to arise.. This should be a basic prerequisite for a society to flourish under God's fundamental option given to us, namely free will... We should only let punishment be reserved by God in the afterlife...

Now there are millions of arabs and muslims who reside in the west and practice their religion, in fact they have spectacular mosques where you can hear the prayers echoing throughout the cities and towns... I'm not against this. What sickens me are these filth bags that turn on these governments that have given them all these freedoms, such as education, religion, free speech, military enrollment, business, sports, all aspects of society and even welfare... These people who have had their lives uplifted are still hell bent on naming us the infidel and imposing sharial law. Its ironic that there are so many of them that want to turn the west into the same hell hole they've so desperately run away from or wouldn't be caught dead there.

Now you know that the average westerner is not interested in war and only wants to make a living. Why is it they can't migrate to Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, libya, Lebanon ect, ect, ect and carry bible in hand or build a church. They can't promote their beliefs or introduce customs without a significant threat sometime down the road.. The sunni or shiat can't even get along and have been fighting amongst themselves for centuries despite coming under the same race and religion... The west should ban together and threaten to banish the muslims back to the middle east hell hole, so they can see how good they've had it...

I mean do you see france bombing buildings in england or germany lynching austria. Has america and canada been at war, have you seen australia suppressing new zealand or portugal and spain in conflict for centuries... No, westerners have evolved and don't let petty differences lead to major confrontations, yet wealthy arab countries sell their souls and wreck their fellow weaker countries for gain... Islam is a disgrace where revenge, suppression and fighting is common place and even encouraged. There are even sub sects that are tribal, intolerable and waring.. Unless sunni and shiat muslims accept each other firstly and then accept other religions and cultures to practice freely and unchallenged, they will never flourish and always be taken advantage by outside powers... You reap what you sow...

Sorry I cudnt quote u Falcon to allow words for myself. Ur calling me out for who I am and what is that? A lot of wot u said in ur 1st paragraph I agree with most of it and this is how east was like when proper Islam was practiced and PROPER sharia law was in place and history is a testament look how muslims ruled spain look at how they ruled other parts of europe in History look at how proper Sharia Law was established and treated everybody equally Chistians were allowed to do wot they plz so were the Jews so were other religions. We all know how the west massacred jews but these same jews were living with us for 1000s of years with no fear. I DISAGREE with wot u say about punishment being in the afterlife yes there is punishment in the afterlife but how will a society function at a normal pace if there is no punishment in this world? There wud be chaos and that ideology we can see in the west it has caused the crime rate to spiral see link: http://www.mapsofworld.com/world-top-ten/coun... . I have traveled to almost all the middle eastern countries and u can see for own eyes that women and children have no fear u can hang 500 pound bills from ur neck and walk the streets freely because any1 who tries to rob u will have his hand cutoff wud u risk it? U will think twice whereas in the west there is CLOSE to NOTHING these days for stealing and robberies and hence people r encouraged to do so. There is so much speculation by you regarding the east I BEG u again I BEG u to travel it will cause ur mind to open to the situations in the east.

I will take an example of Syria and Egypt if u go to these countries the rulers r not Islamic rulers for starters some of them have the same mentality as the democratic west cos they r puppets to them THEY R NOT PRACTICING ISLAM IN ITS ENTIRETY and the west uses them to exploit resources in Arab and other countries on top of that the rulers they r greedy as hell cos they r not following ISLAM but their desires same as the western rulers there is SO MUCH in the west in terms of resources but more then HALF of it is taken by the politicians and they give only a small % to the people. The welfare benefits can be so much more living conditions for the disable can be made HEAPS better including infrastructure, roads transport etc but NO all we hear is some politician who has pissed the taxes on the wall by taking vip flights and going to stripper clubs. And let me tell u something about me I DO NOT support any war against the west but its a little bit hard not have some hatred when u guys just rock up in Afghanistan,Iraq etc and just start killing innocent people for their resources and god knows wot else that is on their lands look at how the west treats Africa just sucks their resources and gives nothing in return look at how the west uses child labors overseas to make their products and sell for 10x the price but the guy who made it just gets a bowl of rice. I DO NOT support suicide bombings even if it was done by extremists because ISLAM DOESN'T ALLOW EXTREMISM IN ANY SHAPE OF FORM. A study was which showed that the by 2050 half the population of Europe wud be Muslim and they will be amongst the major decision makers but the extremist jews wont allow that so they have made sure that Westerners get a bad picture of Islam.

I do understand that u guys r more united then us but there r differences amongst uz come to Australia and Australians will tell u themselves how the US has pushed them out of world trade that is 1 example out of many we used to be united as 1 when we practiced proper Islam but when we stopped practicing it in its entirety it was the end of us but now it is starting to come back and we want to be united. Islam has never spread suppression tribalism etc its the greed of the rulers and the some people in power that is causing all this that is why Islamic preachers r working tirelessly to promote proper Islam.

Just one small thing I wanted to point out which was that u mentioned that an average westerner is not interested in war but we have no problems with an average westerner or some1 who practices Islam properly has no problem with average westerners its ur decision makers that we have problems with ur decision makers have waged war against us for centuries starting from the Romans all the way up to the British and french colonization. U may call us whatever but ur decision makers want to come to our land and use for 1 purpose or the others true u dont see western governments bombing all the places in the east because it is a different type of war they r waging these day.

You miss my point about leaving punishment for God.. Of course laws need to exists for order and justice, but I'm referring to people or religions who take it into their own hands to punish or attack other groups for practicing something contrary to them... God must be the judge for the spiritual life one has lead on earth.. Its unfortunate that in the middle east religion is used a tool to deny freedom and create excuses to launch an attack or take revenge. It is true that the old testament proved to have much war and bloodshed, but this all changed with the fulfillment of God's promise of the final sacrifice to provide the last death ever necessary and absolute freedom amongst people...

Yes I agree that the west has allowed the type of freedom where immorality reigns unfettered, and thus created a very lax and ineffective desire to implement law, all these permissible degraded life styles have a reverse affect on the populace as they too have no interests in making their governments accountable for their out of control actions, everybody is too busy patting each other on the back for pushing the boundaries... This is now catching up with the west and will bring it to its knees... History has proven its people in power that create division or whatever unsavory environment for their own agenda.. I hope for the middle east's sake the people unite and go to the original teachings of peace, and are prepared to openly debate with and accept other religions. This is paramount in order to prevent themselves from being lynched from external powers even their own governments...

Sure, I'll meet you half way on your apology, I also apologize for my degrading insults and rants... But don't let me catch you on the streets..:) you can stop tallying my boasts too, you'll never stop cause my greatness is infinite....

Thanks for the clarification and it is exactly what happens in a proper Sharia Law state u can look this up urself if u have doubts but SHARIA LAW doesnt allow citizens to judge or take control of a situations EVEN if its obvious whos done it. The way is that whoever commits a crime be it robbery, pedophilia, homosexual acts are to be taken to the court where the proceedings will take place and the JUDGES WILL APPOINT certain people who will carry out the punishment if NEED be. But if the robbery for instance is done out of necessity cos the person was very hungry then no Punishment is given and that is the true form of Sharia Law which was practiced for 900 years till corruption seeped in and things went really bad for the Muslims. But the is trouble we have with Muslims today even though it is clear wot is in the Quran and the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH) some Muslims attempt and try justifying things using the Quran and the teachings of the prophet out of context. Only recently in Pakistan two young boys were bashed to death at a marketplace cos people "THOUGHT" they had stolen things. Now for an outsider this wud be like its cos of Islam and Sharia and wot not however ISLAM doesn't PERMIT such barbaric approaches to the matter its the culture and some people who have lost touch to Islam spoil things for the rest.

As for unity it will come soon when Muslims lands unite under 1 true leader who will follow PROPER islam not the moderate kind of Islam u c today. And Christians will unite with the Muslims to fight the Anti-Christ till Christ comes back and unites us all under one banner and kills the Anti-Christ.

Thanks for accepting the apology I think we can both agree that I wudnt wanna c u on the streets either :D. Oh and SELF PRAISE COUNTER nevermind!:).
