Read your post again. You addressed the OP directly and then tossed all those allegations out.
What is worse here is your defense. So you are not blaming the OP, you are blaming all Muslims.
How is that better?
Can you tell me exactly what percentage of Muslims fit into any of the categories you are discussing? If you cannot give me a sourced answer, I am
forced to believe you just lump all Muslims together as you pretty much just said. That is a tough road to go down if we find out what that other
religions also have extremists and terrorist. Look at what the Amish force their women to wear, between the rapings and beatings. Does it not bother
you how they oppress their women?
How about the Mormons who treat women as property? Surely they represent all Mormons and therefor also all Christians?
How about how Atheists in trailer parks that drink too much and like to beat their women? They must represent all Atheists? All trailer park
residents? All men?
i have seen way too much "you can't do this, say this etc" while at the same time denying basic freedoms for everyone they rule
Seeing it from whom and where? There are over a billion Muslims. How many have told you what you can and cannot do?
i was pointing out a lot of things that keep people from respecting Islam, which of course just fuels things like the so called preview that
is being blamed for all the unrest recently. the cartoons, signs in NY subway system etc. how can anyone DEMAND respect while at the same time showing
a lack of respect for everyone else? that is what Islam seems to do. until that changes i can't see why anyone should be expected to show such an
intolerant group any respect.
That is what Islam seems to do if you are an American, sans passport, sans interest in world cultures and religions, and a steady stream of what the
government and MSM want you to believe. Outside that world, I see a tiny proportion of Muslims doing some really bad things. I cannot find one thing
they have done that Christians have not done though. I also look at my Muslim friends who are just as puzzled at the extremists and we wonder why it
is so easy for so many Americans specifically to attribute to 100% what less than 1% have ever done or tried to do? Then we remember how Americans do
not like to leave their country or trust foreign news and it all makes sense.
Read your post again. You are as bad as he or she. That person never claimed to be associated with any of the bad extreme examples of ME culture or
Islam that you specifically told the OP they need to be worried about and focus on.
Which is odd because I said the same thing, only without addressing him as if he is responsible for any of those things in any way.
According to you, just being Muslims means you must make Islam look better than the tiny percent of idiots make it look.
I want a number.
What percentage of Muslims in the world can take any kind of credit for any of the stuff you claimed? My Muslim friends certainly do not tell their
wives what they can and cannot wear. Most of them would be on the curb with suitcases if they even tried. WESTERN MUSLIM WOMEN are very strong
I know your type. You see a women dressed from head to toe in a black robe and immediately you want to free her for her own good. I would love to see
you try that with any of the Muslim women I know who wish they could "free" all the 12 year old girls in America walking around dressed like sluts.
But they only worry about themselves and their family following the rules of the religion they adhere to.
I will be waiting for that percentage and the corresponding source before I respond to you again. Thanks.
