And Allah(swt) would punish you. You non-believers are all the same you rant and repeat what someone else has stated. Come up with original thoughts, or are you all operating on the same hive mind.
Who are you calling a 'non-believer'- in Christian countries YOU are the infidel and non-believer. And a Muslim berating others for not coming up with 'original thoughts' is the ultimate in irony. What 'original thoughts' have Muslims come up with over the past 1400 years?

Additional to this....I know lots of Muslims who have dogs and it makes no difference, and others who follow more orthodox Koranic interpretation and go through an additional cleansing of the hands (seven times, I think) before prayer. But it doesn't stop hem keeping a dog as a pet, and I'm sure they love them just the same as you.

What's a "little wit"? Will it hurt? Is it like a "nit wit" or a "dim wit"?

Yes, we do treasure our freedoms above nearly everything else. That freedom allows Muslims in the west to practice their religion and build their mosques.
The western forces don't kill women and children deliberatly and if your people would stop using them as shields there would be a lot less of them killed. Of course there are those stakes and piles of rocks in the village square.....
The cartoons are just that...drawings. If they upset you that's too bad. Grow up and stop acting like a 4 year old having a tantrum. Your hipocracy knows no bounds.
The detainees in Abu Graib were stripped and photographed in compromising positions to embarass them. I'd rather have my picture taken than my head or hands or feet cut off. No-one is buying your sob story over here.
The PLO was formed shortly after the formation of Israel and for its' stated purpose it was to drive all Jews into the sea. Just because a billion Arabs keep getting their asses kicked by Israel doesn't really make me feel sorry for you. If you people would stop attacking the Jews they would have no reason to defend themselves. Your insane hatred is what drives the troubles.
You want the western troops to leave your area because you don't want our freedom. Of course you want them out.....right up until the next time another arab country comes knocking on your door and then the cries for help will start again. You don't want our freedom? Of course not!! Our form of freedom includes everyone, not just the friends and family of the power structure. If there was freedom in the middle east and the fear of a bullet in the head for everyone who disagrees with anything you say was removed...the ruling class wouldn't be alive long.
I've noticed that your english seems to get better and worse depending on the subject. Could that be because there are more than one person sitting in on that computer to spread the hate and ignorance?
In one of your posts you cited an article from a 5 or 6 year old magazine. Who does that? Who keeps magazines that long? Mostly people whose argument is hanging by a thread and will reach for anything to bolster their argument.
You don't want debate Hammad, you want to convert or destroy. I'm not in the market for either.

You are in side and the fact of world today on other side .

You said : Yes, we do treasure our freedoms above nearly everything else. That freedom allows Muslims in the west to practice their religion and build their mosques
I am saying : you are repeating what your media says . the facts on the ground are the opposite of what media and bush government tell their people. U.S. military are losing in Iraq . In BBC News you can find for The top US military commander in Iraq : There were tactical successes but the surge was a strategic failure, he said, adding it was time for troops to leave.
Another Democrat Congresswoman, Lynn Woolsey said "We need to get out of Iraq, for that country's sake and for our own. It is time to go."

Yes Mr. KBT it is time leave. Your army are losing in Iraq .
When Bush said “we will turn Iraq into a secular and free country” we knew that It is only a dream. In Fact he leads the country into sectarian wars and takes the whole country into the dark ages.
The main Reason to what happen in Iraq and the third world is America. America today is nothing in Humanity, Mercy and peace. America is leader of Defaulting.

I agree with you Islamic world in third world and powerless but don’t look only to your foot .Rise your head to sky you will see “ Allah created everything “ that is enough to understand the fact of life .

You said “The western forces don't kill women and children “
You don’t know because you are watching your media. As you know the media is effective power in minds.

You said “The cartoons are just that...drawings”
Do you agree when I draw you or your father like a dog ?
If you say No that is mean you agree with Muslims .
If you say Yes that is mean you are dog.
Muslims don’t agree to be like a dog. They love Mohammad more than their self.
I waiting your answer no more than YES OR NO.
You said “The detainees in Abu Graib were stripped and photographed”
As I said before. You are repeat what your media says.
You said “it was to drive all Jews into the sea”
Yes. They came to Palestine in 1948 by britches help . Tomorrow new country will come to occupy Saudi Arabia then you say “you want to drive it to Sea!!!!!!!!!!

About my English .

Yes I am not professional. It isn’t basic language I am her to learn.

I will come back to discuss others points .

Accept my regards.

Come on squid! If anyone judged Canada by the posts of yours and your coherts, they would want to turn over your outhouse with you in it. Granted, there are some idiots who post from the USA. Many are living in the USA from Eastern Europe, or are moslems who can't hide their hatred for Jews. Now, you know this, but by not being honest with yourself, you are showing your bigotry. When did you become a moslem?
So no one from the states posts hate on this site . Glad to hear that but the fact remains that the KLAN and other hate groups ,including the MIMUTEMEN are planning a rally in Manassas Virginia against immigrants . And YOUR BIGOTRY is showing when you ask when I became a "moslem" . Is being a Muslim a bad thing in your warped little world ? I think so !! And learn to spell or at least use a spell check .

The American general who is stating that they are losing is either being mis-quoted or he'll be replaced. The American forces are trying to hurt as few people as possible and the struggle is slow. With their firepower they can't lose unless politicians like Lynn Woolsey keep undermining them to curry favour with the left wingers in America.

The song of American being the fault of all the troubles in the world is getting old. Your part of the world has been at eachothers throats since the dawn of man. Every leader knows that they have to have a common, identifiable enemy to blame for everything. It's not a new idea, and I doubt Muslims invented it.

Mis-quoting seems to be a repeating theme here. I didn't say that American troops haven't killed women or children, I said they didn't kill women or children DELIBERATLY, and that if your heroic warriors would stop using them as shields there would be a lot less of them killed.

The media is a powerful tool and encapsulates the minds of the ones with no capacity for original thought and fear of self expression. If all you're told is one side of a story, and you're afraid to ask any questions you will become extremists who are being led by the nose by their so-called leaders for their own personal agendas.

I don't care how you draw my father. Trying being a little less sensitive. Dogs aren't the spit of satan that has been described here. They are mammals - that's all. We breed, raise, train and show dogs and I'll tell you this, I'd rather have them for my friends than many people I've known over my lifetime.

Were you personally in Abu Graib? If you weren't then you have no idea of what went on in there for sure either. Do you think embarassment is worse than beheading, maiming, disfiguring and torture? What are the chances that the prisoners themselves lied about how bad things were in order to score points. It's war and bad things happen. My guess is that the prisoners taken by the Muslims have been embarassed a time or two.

I'm not interested in what MIGHT happen to Saudi Arabia at some point in the future, I was talking about what is going on with Israel today. You don't have to worry about anyone coming to take over Saudi Arabia as long as your royal family plays both ends against the middle and stays friends with the U.S. You hate the U.S. so much yet your country made a deal with the U.S. for 20 billion dollars worth of arms. Don't get too excited though, none of them will reach the continental U.S. from the middle east. Oh yes, I just remembered, Israel is getting 30 billion dollars worth of arms from the U.S.

Your english is just fine, it's far better than my Arabic, which is zero.
