"The God of the Qur'an is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.

Sounds horrible. I'm surprised you support suicide bombers after that incident.
Here's an interesting thing, at least it is to me: I've no idea of my family history beyond 4 or 5 generations of parents. I think this may be true of most English people, at least the ones I have met. My family name certainly doesn't connect me to a single city, town or village.

Do you actually believe that Musab al Zarqawi would really be interested to Blow up a Selawis Wedding ?!!! Abu Musab had a plan to blow up the head office of the Jordanian intelligence Department, it was published on our local media years before Amman Bombings.

isn't it weird that Amman bombings happened directly after America's declaration to the war against terrorism?? Do you know that in Jordan and specially in the Jordanian intelligence department there are American officers ?

Jordanians should hand over terrorists to the CIA yearly, I believe they couldn't find any, so they started to build up some terrorists cells and sometimes Just hand over innocent Muslims with bad records and Finally they came up with their Biggest plan (AMMAN BOMBINGS), they have to' at least if they wanted the funds to keep flowing.

Arabs take their family names seriously, the whole Arabic community is based on families and where they came from, not to mention that we are originally Palestinians so we were raised to love Palestine and to memorize every city and Village in it even if we've never been there, maybe our ancestors didn't want us to forget our History and our lands which were occupied by Israel.

This tribalism is all really alien to me. I'm very protective of my immediate family but I don't think I'm part of a clan. OK, so I wouldn't like to have the family name Cuntybollocks but I'm not really interested in the history of my name. It's just a means for the post to get to the right house. If you're given a problem name, it doesn't cost much money to change your name officially.

It wasn't always this way. When I was growing up, the horse racing was on BBC TV on Saturday lunchtime. For some reason, this man's name engaged my interest:

You prompted me to check on his current state: http://www.dementiablog.org/terry-pratchett-o...

I don't follow horse racing but I remember the commentator saying "Horse X, Jockey Y, trainer Malcolm Bastard". I was about six and I couldn't work out why a trainer had a name I wasn't meant to use. Giggles all round.

He's since changed his name to Kevin. That joke is so old, it knew Barry Cryer when he was a lad.

Yes I regularly check on his progress. He has a wonderful sense of humour. I have read most of his books, only one I did not really like was The Long Earth and so not bothered with The Long War. Other than that, everything.

Childish “dirty word” humour can be so exasperating. Adi, my boy Is at the stage where he is testing the boundaries of what he can get away, fart and willy(?) are the current favourites. He slips them into conversation than falls around in hysterics when he does get away with it. It does kind of spoil the “adult” talk he’s trying to understand

If I wanted to stay up and watch The Professionals or The Sweeney, which, aged six, was a massive treat, I had reel in such behaviour. Of course, now that TV is on demand, viewing is much more segregated.

I bought Children of the Stones on DVD a couple of years ago. It's still really unsettling.

Do you remember this little gem? I used to see it when I got home from school. Proper TV!

“come and sit on my knee you sweet little child ” has a whole new meaning

I used to like Donald Pleasence, they don’t seem to have any character actor any more. I have (or had) his autograph somewhere.

Never like Jimmy Savill though, he always struck me as creepy – that’s precognition for ya!!!

My dad told me a story of a girl he used to know in Salford. She lived in the same apartment block as Seville while he was doing TotP. He was forever tryimg to pick her up but she also thought he was a dirty old creep and too old for her, she was 16/17 at the time he must have been in his 50s

Jim'll Fix It required children to submit letters with their age on it, FFS!

Not surprised. Nor by Stuart Hall, Dave Lee Travis or Jimmy Tarbuck (was sworn at by the latter when I was 12 at a Golf Open, must have been too old for him)... but Rolfaroo. I didn't suspect Rolf. I'd love to swap out Noel Edmonds for Rolf, but if Rolf has abused the truth needs to come out.

Actually I was surprised at DLT. My father knew him in the late 60’s/early 70’s in Manchester. He was just one of the boys, acted as you’d expect a “celeb” to act and gave not the slightest hint that he was (possibly) a perve. They kept in touch for a while and as a kid I met him a couple of times, I remember him as overbearing, perhaps because of the hairy face but nothing else.

Don’t know about Hall, JT, Star or Rolf. I never really considered any of them entertainers. In the case of Hall, Star and JT I saw it on the news and it took a while to even register who they were.

I only knew the name Rolf Harris because although I’d seen him on TV a few times he had been on the breakfast show a few months earlier where his name register.

Just shows how much attention I pay to the cult of celebrity.

There is not twisting of Islam. Islam is a satanic religion. It is not exactly for peace. Recently spoke to an Islamist and he quoted a passage from the Quran that stated that any means justifies the end, and if that meant murdering innocent people so be it, in the name and spread of Islam. Westernised Muslims do not reflect the essence of Islam, but if called upon to rise up they would immediately bare arms to attack every infidel they could lay their hands on. There is a false peace within the west concerning Islamists.
With all due respect, before you accept some one's words about a great religion, ask for references, every letter in Quran is referenced; there is only One Quran and many translations and a huge number of interpretations, thx

The text of Islam distinguishes itself from texts of other religions by encouraging violence and aggression against people with other beliefs. This has long been a taboo in the research into Islam but it has to be dealt with. There are open calls for armed struggle in the Koran. Mohammad himself led a series of campaigns against polytheists and people the book. He became the model for emulation as stated in the Koran, and the rulers after him fought violently not only against non-believers but against each other as well. He set the ball of Jihad in motion.

Within two centuries of Muhammad's death, jihad wars had expanded the Muslim empire from Portugal to the Indian subcontinent. Only if the Koran had told us that fighting is permitted only in self-defense, then I would agree that Islam is a religion of peace - but it is not. It's a religion of peace only on its own terms,

I think these people are not looking for answers, references or the truth as is. They are just here to lament, shout out, insult, demean and troll some unknown forces even though their target is to give Islam a bad image, which is a complete waste of time to engage with them in that term.

There are no "great" religions, and Islam is by far the worst of a very bad lot. As for the Koran is concerned, it isn't even practical for use as toilet paper.

Islam gives itself a bad image, illustrated by the actions of Muslims.

How can anyone give islam a worse image than it already gives itself?

Religion stinks,but islam stinks most of all. It dehumanizes women,it has no tolerance for non-believers,and that is demonstrated clearly by those countries who have the death penalty for being an Atheist.It is no coincident that they are all muslim countries.
Call me selfish,but I don't want to live under an ideology that would have me murdered for my non-belief. It is in my interest to appose it with every fiber of my being,My life may depend on it. It is also in the interest of anyone who isn't a muslim. The radical muslim cretins rule the roost,so much so,that the more "moderate"muslims are scared shit-less to appose them because they know all too well that they,too,are of danger of losing their own lives.
Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining. It is blatantly obvious for anyone with eyes to see that islam is causing the death of tens of thousands of muslims by the hands of other muslims.
