I hate these kind of lists...my comments from 1 to 9:
1)- A nun usually does this in a (church)
community focused on devotion to God. A muslim woman walks around in my street as if it were 'her
community' and I have to be carefull not to offend her or her husband in any which way.
2)- First of all...who says that the entire society respects a western woman when she stays home to take care of a kid? Second...most western woman
are with a man of their choice and most muslim woman are with a man from an arranged marriage. So the kids they have are in fact also 'arranged',
seems like a little oppression to me.
My opinion is that religion (in whatever form)
should stay out of classrooms. Girls that walk around like they are Lady GaGa in
school should also stay out. So both type of girls should act differently...but when it involves a religion suddenly this is something to talk about?
Also...when a western girl moves to/or is born in an arabic country and goes to school there...she has to wear a Hijab!
So the Hijab wearing
girl in this example should actually...get my picture?
4)- When a child at the age of 4 or 5 (like the kids in the picture?) starts reading a Koran...I would be more worried then when it starts messing
around with clay. But maybe that's me.
Also...the only reason a kid of this age is reading a Koran (or Bible for that matter)
must come from it's parents. Otherwise why would he be
so interested in specifically a Koran or Bible? Silly...just like little girls wearing a Hijab...they don't even know why they are wearing them...?!
So in short: dedicating yourself to a religion at the ages from this example should worry any parent! And in this example it even looks like it is bad
to 'not dedicate yourself to religion'...Please kids just play!
5)- What is happening to the Palestinians in general is terrible and cannot be ignored. But comparing 'every person that sacrifices him or herself' to
'the Palestinians'...Please. So...I better not sacrifice myself otherwise I am being a hypocrite, because I cannot save the palestinians? Or am I
reading this wrong?
6)- It seems to me that this is only the case in western countries...but who am I?
7)- In this example a little boy is holding a Koran and says he has the solution. I don't get it. First: what is the trouble at hand? Second: If the
solution is in the Koran (or Bible for that matter)
...why do we have this trouble in the first place? These books are so old. The Koran and the
Bible (to name just the 2 most known rulebooks)
, shouldn't we all be peacefull and loving by now? Without any trouble? But no, so let's try
again! Grab a old book for a solution!
I rather see people think about a solution instead of grabbing some old book and hope the solution is in there somewhere. Haven't we passed this
8)- Aarrgh...comparing a car to a book!? My guess is that a car cannot put as many crazy ideas in your head as a book (but I am not sure on
this)...and for a car at least you need a liscense. So in the end actually not the person who crashes the car is responsible, but the institute that
gave the liscense to this person (but that is my thought on this)
And in this example I do blame the car. It is 2011?! We should have cars that cannot crash! Like in 'Minority Report' or so...:wink:
9)- Why should I care about Islamic laws? Goddammit! I live in a western country!
And why should I care about what newspapers say? Really...
It's like:"My doctor is a healthy man so how can he possibly help me? He is healthy so he doesn't understand what I am going through".
My 9 responses to a little silly list of crap which made me a bit furious.
