let me answer you mate
Democracy is a christine way of like not a muslim way of life if you christines wants to live and follow your way of life then what is your problem if muslims wants to live with their law and their way of life too
and if you think muslim took over the land and impose their law what christine are doing today
Attacking muslim lands and taking over killing innocent muslim in number of millions to impose decocracy a christine way of life "Fact"
I am Pakistani muslim and in Pakistan 5% of our population is non muslim including 3 to 4 % chistines and they have churches where they are free to go and worship
You really need to do some research mate and then open you mouth "Fact"
All over in middle east christine have chuches and they are free to do what ever they wants to do
WE MUSLIM NEVER BURN YOUR BIBLE but YOU CHRISTINE'S BUY OUR QURAN SO MANY TIMES Who have more tolerance Us muslims or you christines FACT us Muslims
Your fact 5 makes me laugh
If we could do propaganda then we ll first revert all christine living in middle east and for sure in pakistan by killing or by any other possible way but its not like that
matter of fact in 1947 we had less then 1 % NON Muslims and now they are more than 5%
now you tell me christine are growing or reducing fact growing
FAct is we muslim are not allowed to force any one to revert to true religious Islam all we can do is explain thats all
If we were allowed to kill or revert non muslim to muslim then they ll not a be single muslim living in Middle east Sub continent esp Pakistan

Criminal Support by criminal west

Prof. Rodney Shakespeare

There are indications that, on the first day of Eid al-Fitr after the fasting of Ramadan has ended, Al-Qaeda and associated Al-Nusra Front elements will declare an independent Islamic state in the north of Syria.

A black flag will be raised, checkpoints set up, and patrols will be everywhere. Anybody who by an item of dress or facial expression indicates disagreement with the regime will be whipped on the spot.

Even if merely thought to be disagreeing, a person, if lucky, will be whipped. If unlucky, the throat will be slit. In short, anybody who is not an out-and-out supporter of the new regime will receive condign punishment at best or, just as likely, be killed on the spot.

This is not an exaggeration. The proponents of the new Islamic state are Takfiri, a person who accuses other Muslims of apostasy which means they can be killed. But it’s much worse than that. The Takfiri now in control of part of northern Syria are so full of hatred that not only are all Shia Muslims deemed to be apostates but so are any Sunni Muslims who do not fit into the mental concepts of the Takfiri madmen.

Of course, anybody who is not a Muslim (such as a Christian) is automatically, in the Takfiri view, an apostate and so slated for death. It did not take long for the extreme bigots of the French Revolution (1789) to point a finger at anybody and send them to the guillotine. So it is with the Takfiri whose bloodlust is such that they long to be surrounded by the blood of the dead and dying.

The information about the pending declaration of an Islamic state was given by a high-ranking official of the Free Syrian Army. He said that Al-Qaeda will declare the new state while militarily defeating the FSA and taking over the border crossings with Turkey.

Already, the official noted, Al-Qaeda had beheaded FSA member Fadi al-Qash and his brother in the town of Al-Dana, and had then assassinated FSA Supreme Military Council member Kamal al-Hamami. More assassinations are to be expected.

Needless to say, the FSA is making its own dispositions to try to counter the Al-Qaeda plan and it is viewing the situation, very reasonably, as “tantamount to a declaration of war."

Apart from the establishment of what is likely to be the most intolerant state in history (and history is full of examples of intolerance), the situation has endless peril. Turkey, for example, will have bigotry on its border. And, apart from being destabilized by millions of refugees, Turkey will soon have its own Takfiri within its own borders.

But whose fault is that? Deliberately overthrowing a sensible previous policy of no trouble with neighbors, Turkish Prime minister Erdogan, no doubt bribed by Zionist NATO with the promise of becoming the new Caliph of the Middle East, has proclaimed, and is arming, a vicious sectarianism with consequences which may yet dismember Turkey itself.

Then there’s Saudi Arabia. Where vicious intolerance is concerned the Saudi Wahhabi are world leaders and Wahhabi doctrine and practice, endlessly financed and promoted, is at the heart of the Takfiri sense of a God-given right to kill anybody they like.

Yet, strange as it may seem, the Takfiri, who are financed and armed by the USA, UK, Qatar, Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia, have many enemies in their sights including, believe it or not, the USA, UK, Qatar, Turkey, Israel and, yes, Saudi Arabia itself. There’s really nothing new in this: Osama bin Laden’s first declared enemy was the Saudi regime: the USA was the second.

So how on earth does it happen that the West, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel and Turkey are financing and arming their very worst enemies? Surely people cannot be that stupid!

Oh yes they can, particularly if, at the heart of their major policy, there is immorality and large-scale contradiction. And supporting the Zionist entity as it expands into the lands of others and implements a creeping genocide of the brave Palestinian people, is that immorality and large-scale contradiction.

You cannot claim to uphold democracy and human rights when, at the same time, you are ending them. You cannot uphold democracy and human rights when you support the most gruesome torturers and killers in Saudi Arabia. You cannot claim tolerance and fair play when you are promoting sectarianism. You cannot implement the Zionist desire to smash apart all Islamic nations without experiencing the consequences of smashing up the nations.

Of course, the FSA, in a weak position, is prepared to say anything to get Western intervention. Yet a wider war could result and Russia will resist such intervention.
Western policy, Saudi policy and Turkish policy is a mass of contradictions and inevitably resulting in ‘blowback’ i.e., nasty consequences which you do not want but which you have created. May they suffer the consequences more than the millions of innocents who are already suffering.

"You see, when a nation threatens another nation the people of the latter forget
their factionalism, their local antagonisms, their political differences, their
suspicions of each other, their religious hostilities, and band together as one
unit. Leaders know that, and that is why so many of them whip up wars during periods
of national crisis, or when the people become discontented and angry.

The leaders stigmatize the enemy with every vice they can think of, every evil
and human depravity. They stimulate their people's natural fear of all other men
by channeling it into a defined fear of just certain men, or nations. Attacking
another nation, then, acts as a sort of catharsis, temporarily, on men's fear
of their immediate neighbors.

This is the explanation of all wars, all racial and religious hatreds, all massacres,
and all attempts at genocide." - Taylor Caldwell -, "The Devil?s Advocate" (1952)

WASHINGTON: The United States cannot defeat Al Qaeda without Pakistan’s support, the US military chief tells a powerful Senate panel during his reconfirmation hearing.

In a written statement to the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday afternoon, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen Martin Dempsey also emphasised the need to help Pakistan stabilise as instability in this key South Asian state would hurt the entire region.

“Our strategic and national security goals remain to disrupt, dismantle and defeat Al Qaeda and to prevent the return of safe havens in Afghanistan and Pakistan,” he wrote.“This would not be possible without Pakistani support.”

Explaining the need for continued US engagement with the country, Gen Dempsey said:“We also have an interest in a stable Pakistan and the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology.”

The general also said that the two countries were now moving towards a more focused and issue-related relationship instead of a more generalised friendship they had in the recent past.

“On the security front, we have a more limited relationship than in the past, but I believe it is a pragmatic and constructive approach,” he said.

Gen Dempsey, who has been re-nominated by President Barack Obama for the same post, was responding to a series of questions from both Republican and Democratic lawmakers on US-Pakistan relations.

In his written response, the general acknowledged that Pakistan’s cooperation on counter-terrorism had not always met US expectations. Although since 2009 Pakistan has undertaken counter-insurgency operations against extremist organisations in the northwest, including Swat, North and South Waziristan, Mohmand and Bajaur, those operations had produced “mixed results”, he said. The United States, however, had helped Pakistan carry out those operations by providing funds and other resources, he added.

“Security assistance, Coalition Support Fund reimbursements and cross-border coordination with Isaf and Afghan forces have helped enable these operations,” he said.“It is in our interest that Pakistan continues this campaign as effectively and comprehensively as possible.”

Gen Dempsey told the lawmakers that while recent elections had further strengthened democracy in Pakistan, the US defence establishment must maintain its ties with the Pakistani military.

“Our engagements, and especially our security assistance programmes, are essential for effective military cooperation between our two countries,” he said. The US military chief informed the panel that he had engaged productively with Pakistan Army chief Gen Ashfaq Kayani, many times in the past, and the Office of the Defence Representative in Islamabad played an important role in building and sustaining military-military ties at lower levels.

“These relationships allow us to engage Pakistan in clearly defined areas of shared concern such as maintaining regional stability, curbing violent extremism, and countering the threat of improvised explosive devices,” he said.

Gen Dempsey told the lawmakers that if reconfirmed he would continue “a frank and respectful dialogue” with Pakistan about “our shared interests” in countering extremism and promoting regional stability.

“Security cooperation cannot succeed without the buy-in of Pakistani leadership and continued support of the US Congress,” he said.

The US general warned that there would be no American troops in Afghanistan post-2014 without a signed Bilateral Security Agreement but he also said he was confident it would be signed in time.

Please go to the thread "War is not over" where a scientific discussion on fall of WTC is going on.

That is a better place where it is already on.

I just give here some hints of it from time to time.

Is it not strange that even after 12 years, people in west have "no courage" to face the truth of 9/11?

The belief in "official version" has become a sort of Dogma with one.

"9/11 was planned, executed and completed by Al Qaeda with no ground support, with no help from any one on ground and WTC-1, WTC-2 and WTC-7 collapsed like nine pins by a single jetliner strike".

I think they should make it as a part of US Constitution, if you want to be a US citizen, you must believe in it and raise no objection whatsoever!!
