On a serious note! I served in Lybia in the 1950/60's as a Royal marine. As I recall the King at the time was King Idris, under the protection of the British Empire.

Religion is a social, cultural, lifestyle infrastructure which supports spirituality. Religion teaches us how to live in society, to respect our elders

Pal,

I am not a religious person. but calling oneself Atheist is the most stupid thing.

I cant say like religious people say ----->> God Exists -- Coz No one has proved it till now

At the same time I cant say like Atheists say ----->> God doesn't Exist.--- coz No one has proved it till now

I would just say------ I DON'T KNOW----

U.S. drones killed more Afghan civilians in 2012
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP)— The number of U.S. drone strikes in Afghanistan jumped 72 percent in 2012, killing at least 16 civilians in a sharp increase from the previous year, the U.N. said Tuesday in a sign of the changing mission as international forces prepare to withdraw combat forces in less than two years.

It is not possible to govern with perfectly clean hands. There are still terrorists out there, hiding in the shadows, plotting to kill Americans. So today’s leaders face the Machiavellian choice: Do I have to be brutal to protect the people I serve? Do I have to use drones, which sometimes kill innocent children, in order to thwart terror and save the lives of my own? We should do as much as we can to reduce both war and drone killings, but if forced to choose between the two, I'd go with the drones every time ...

RAW, Mossad, CIA responsible for Balochistan situation’
http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp...
KARACHI: Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP) says US CIA, Indian RAW and Israeli Mossad intelligence agencies were responsible for present grave situation in Balochistan created under a planned conspiracy. Senior Vice President JUP and Patron Central Jamaat Ahle Sunnat Shah Mohammad Owais Noorani Siddiqui while addressing press conference along with Jamaat Ahle Sunnat Ulema from Quetta, Khuzdar, Mastung, Kalat, Tuesday at Karachi Press Club, alleged that there was no government in Balochistan and those responsible for killing patriot Ahle Sunnat Ulema in the province in last two years have not yet been arrested. He demanded security for Ahle Sunnat Ulema and stop activities of banned sectarian organizations in the province. Noorani said:“Unless the issue of missing persons is resolved, general amnesty announced and those nominated in the murder of Nawab Akbar Bugti are put on trial before the court, the situation in Balochistan will not improve and remain cause of serious concern.” ppi

As it is common to do FGM on girls under 12, which is more likely? They chose to do it or they are forced to do it?
And why isn't Islam against it? Does every atrocity have to be mentioned directly in the quran before a muslim will recognize it as such.
But Islam does not promote it being done forcefully so that is the guardians problem not the the religions. Islam actually changed it whereas before the whole area would be cut, Islam gave guidelines to prevent to much pain, and why is it you carry on claiming it as a Muslim problem? As I have said it is a cultural not religious problem.

So, your saying that because it applies to just this one event in time it has no relevance to Muslims today? If not, what is a Muslim suppose to learn from this Sura?
Muslims are supposed to learn about the suffering and pain Muhammad and his companions had to go through for the revival of Islam, so they too can make little sacrifices such as taking time out during the day to complete their prayers and giving charity.

That isn't logical when addressing the word used in the English edition. Why wouldn't God give you a message that can carry across all languages and all nations and peoples? A God who can create the heavens and the earth shouldn't have a problem doing so.
I failed to understand what you think is not logical about this. Allah has clearly provided a message that can carry across all nations and people the proof of this is the Muslims all over the world, but the problem is the sects that have been created such as Shia's, slaafis, wahabis , check this video out this should explain more why there is difference of opinion, it is very long and a part of a series but this is the first thing I could find.
