Saudi Clerics Protest Women Driving, Blaming U.S. For Anti-Ban Campaign

Saudi Clerics Protest Women Driving, Blaming U.S. For Anti-Ban Campaign

“"However backward we might think they are, it should not be done with contempt, we have no grounds. Just look how dysfunctional the west is." libnitmare

Complete nonsense.

- In Saudi Arabia, non-Muslims are not allowed to hold even private religious services because that would be insulting to their benighted religion. Where in the US do you do this?

- In Saudi Arabia, women cannot drive or leave the country without the written permission of a male guardian (father/husband/son). Where in the US do you do this?

- In Saudi Arabia, rape victims have to have 4 Muslim male witnesses to prove rape. Where in the US do you do this?

You have to be really confused to believe that there is no moral difference between Sowdi Barbaria and the West.”

“"Real Muslims did not attack us on 911" RAR

Osama bin Laden and Ayman Zawahiri, who plotted the attacks, certainly thought they were real Muslims. Both of them apparently spent a lot of time studying the Koran, hadith, sira etc. Zawahiri's forehead has a bruise from his hitting his head on the floor so often while praying - it is called a "zabiba" in Arabic and is considered to be a mark of a devout Muslim. All their edicts and pronouncements are laden with quotes from the Koran or citations from the hadith about why their actions are justified.

What authority do you have to tell them or us that they are not "real Muslims"? Why are you qualified to make this pronouncement?”

“Yes, I've read about the Crusades. Here's what I read:

AD 635 -- Christian Damascus fell to invading Muslims.
AD 638 -- Christian Jerusalem,and later Alexandria,fell to invading Muslims.
AD 668 -- Muslim armies laid siege to Constantinople. They were repulsed.
AD 711 -- Muslim armies invaded Spain. By AD 715 they had conquered most of Spain.
AD 717 -- Muslim armies again laid siege to Constantinople. Again repulsed.
AD 732 -- Muslim armies invaded France. Charles Martel stopped them at Tours.
AD 792 -- The Muslim ruler of Spain, Hisham, called for a new invasion of France, and was repulsed by the French.
AD 846 -- Muslim armies reached Rome, where they forced the Pope to pay them tribute.
AD 848 -- France was again invaded by Muslims. And again repulsed.
AD 1059 -- Pope Urban II launched the FIRST Crusade.

In short, it was after roughly 450 years of relentless Muslim aggression and conquest of Christian kingdoms that the first crusade was launched.
**************
Catholic Inquisition: http://www.bede.org.uk/inquisition.htm

"..the records of the Spanish Inquisition are spectacularly good ...the Inquisition, ..executed about 700 people between 1540 and 1700. It is also reckoned that they probably killed about two thousand during the first fifty years of operation when persecution against Jews and Moslems was at its most severe. This would give a total figure of around 5,000 for the entire three hundred year period of its operation."

“"When a man stops believing in God, the problem is not that he believes nothing, it is that he believes anything." usually attributed to Chesterton.

Europe no longer believes in anything so now they follow anyone who has beliefs, no matter how mistaken.”

Robert Cat on Aug 20, 2013 at 20:04:13

“Europeans are not following Islam. Islam has taken over because Euros tend to be liberals and, therefore, not practical. They see Islam as a harmless religion instead of the radical political ideology that it is. And they allowed Muslims to invade their countries and build their mosques, and now they are being taking over. We will be next here in the U.S.”

“"Egyptians suffering from meek US response to violence"

The main suffering in Egypt is US reporters suffering from a lack of sense.

One of the constant refrains one hears from Islamic countries is that their "plight" is entirely due to interference from evil Western countries, and that if Western countries just left them alone, all would be well. Non-Muslim countries should do exactly that. Leave them alone for a couple of centuries, let them fight it out, and insulate our countries from the side-effects of the conflict - no refugees, immigrants, or aid to any side. When the only choices are between dictators and cannibals as we saw in Syria, discretion is the best part of valour.”

“No, we deranged Islamophobes do not consider peace and literature to be junk - we do consider the Nobel Prizes in peace and literature to be junk categories compared to the sciences.

Here is a simple test. Pick 5 random Nobel laureates in Physics and ask a contemporary physicist what the contributions of those 5 people are. My guess is that any physicist worth his salt will know about the work of at least 4 out of 5 of them.

Now pick 5 random Nobel laureates in Literature and ask a contemporary writer to name a book or even the influence that those 5 writers have had. My guess is that most writers or even Literature professors will be unable to say anything about even one of them.

As for the peace category, what more does one have to say other than it has been given to Yasser Arafat, Henry Kissinger, Le Duc Tho, Teddy Roosevelt (!) and Obama?”

Parker95 on Aug 13, 2013 at 06:02:17

“Your "test" is simply weird. Of course contemporary writers would be able to name a book written by a Noble Laureate in Literature and discuss the influence it is had. As for the Peace Prize I agree that it sometimes goes to people who really don't deserve it like Kissinger or Teddy Roosvelt but it also goes to people who richly deserve it like , Aung San Suu Kyi, The Red Cross, Medecin Sans Frontieres,  Fridtjof Nansen ( a personal hero of mine), Albert Schweitzer,  Muhammad Yunus,  Nelson Mandela......to name but a few of the Laureates who deserved the prize. ”

“The long quote you gave from Macaulay about how wonderful India was before the British got there is an Internet fabrication that is very popular in subcontinent circles. We have a complete record of Macaulay's speeches and no one has found this quote or anything similar to it in the record. As best as we can tell, it was fabricated by an RSS writer (ironic that you would use it). Here is a blog post with links to many other people who have examined and rejected the authenticity of this quote.

Second, the number of 800 million Hindus in India (there are almost none left in Pakistan after decades of genocide and forced conversions) that you give is probably from the 2001 census (827 million). At that time, the population of India was a billion. Now it is 1.2 billion, and estimating 80% are Hindu (which was the proportion in 2001), you get about 960 million. It is likely to be a bit less than that since the Muslim birth rate is higher than the Hindu birth rate but it does not seem unreasonable to round this number to a billion.”
