    Celtic Twilight reacted to habib e najjaar in Women, what are some stereotypes/assumptions about you that you hate?   
    We are apparently bound by different rules people. 
    I personally have no problem with assumptions about women being more emotional and sensitive. I think it is a vital characteristic which comes with other roles that women exclusively carry in life, such as motherhood and the ability to be extremely sensitive and caring for the minutest needs of the most minute of creatures (e.g a barely formed unborn child within us).
    What I DO have a problem with, and what I think is often labelled as "emotional" is illogical. For people to assume women are illogical and unreasonable because they are emotional and sensitive is wrong. Being emotional and sensitive and of higher/sharper emotional intelligence does not equate to being an irrational, illogical person incapable of using their brain to make decisions, even if their heart will have some in put in what decisions they make.

    Worse, men acting crazy and emotional over a stinking video game are normal and women are mocked for getting upset over things that actually matter!

    Celtic Twilight got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in Is Rumi considered a heretic?   
    Rumi is greatly loved by moronically sentimental indigenous Westerners who otherwise have no time for Islam. That sets off alarm bells for me.
    The Muslims I find most interesting are Fatimah, Imam Ali, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, Yahya ibn Habash Suhrawardi and Ali Shariati- and the reason that I admire that them is each in their own way were problem solvers, they were not out to give people warm fuzzy feelings.

    Celtic Twilight reacted to Mohammed-Mehdi in Upcoming BBC documentary "Undercover with the clerics"   
    It is not Shia or Shia Islam or religious authorities who are responsible for evil crimes, that of course do happen in a nation of 40 million humanbeings.
    In fact it is the same authorities who saved Iraq multiple times together with the people, and UN thanked Sayyed al Sistani for some, etc. 
    These are attacked here by the vicious media, BBC, which is funded by United Kingdom (imperialist and evil) goverment or whatever you call em.

    Preferably by Shia academics. I have enjoyed reading his books however I have a strong intuition that he is deliberately exaggerating the importance of currents within Shia Islam and find some of the things he writes about rather scandalous. I also suspect that he has been allowing his scholarship to be influenced by political passions.

    Celtic Twilight got a reaction from The Green Knight in Jewish Christianity & Islam - Hans-Joachim Schoeps   
    Hans Joachim Schoeps was a brilliant scholar but also in general a very interesting character. When it came to research into early Christianity he was light years of the rest of academia. E.P. Sanders who is seen as the father of the "New Perspectives on Paul" basically took all his ideas in "Paul and Palestinian Judaism" from Hans Joachim Schoeps who was a real genius. The problem is that he has been put down the memory hole because he led a German-Jewish radical German nationalist organization during the Wiemar Republic and when Hitler came to power wrote a book addressed to Hitler basically arguing that it was Jews from Eastern Europe who were the problem not German Jews as such (it is controversial to say this but the point he was making was not devoid of rationality and justice- which obviously does not justify what Hitler was to do). He managed to leave Germany in time for neutral Sweden, this parents were not so lucky and both ended by dying in Hitler's concentration camps. As if all that was not enough after World War II ended he still remained very much the German nationalist and anti-Zionist, socializing with "National Conservatives" many of whom had been senior Officers in German Army during the war. When in the 1960s students at the University discovered his "dodgy" past and present they went mad and he ended up resigning from his academic post. In response to this he wrote another very controversial book advocating a military coup to put manners on the Ultra-Left, kick out the Americans and bring back classical German decency and culture.

    Celtic Twilight reacted to Mohammadi_follower in Why Ja'faari mathab must be propagated in Egypt   
    The Islamic Republic Of Iran is not equal Shia Islam and this is not what I was trying to say. However Iran is nowadays the only country in the world which have for official religion Shia Islam and pretends to rule according to these principles. So even if we don’t like it Iran represents Shia Islam nowadays and this is even more true when we know that most Shia communities in the world endorse the kind of governement we have in Iran (actually this is only among Shia iraqis that I saw many criticism). 
    About "expansionist" Iran I would say that depend what you mean by "expansionist". Actually Iran don’t want to annex Arab countries for recreate a persian empire contrary to what some idiots try to pretend. Such scenarios would never work and most iranians themselves would not even wanting that. However this is good to expand the motives and ideology of iranian revolution in other countries if people want it for struggling against oppressors. This is me here where I don’t understand why that would be wrong for Shias to be for it.
    I never said by the way that I am against borders and I want a borderless world. I just said I found weird to be proud of borders building by british and saying such frontiers must never be redrawing like they had always been here. For Arab countries I don’t know and I would say this is not my bussinesse but me for exemple I would love to see persian speaking territories joining Iran if possible (and if they want if of course !).
    By the way I think this is better for Iraq to move toward nationalism more than sectarianism. Because after all this country is 60% Shia and 40% Sunni. If never one of this religion say we must rule only according to his own understanding of religion that would be the chaos. However I would maybe prefer that Iraqi laws become more inspired by Islamic principles than secular laws.

    I am not a Muslim so I am not going to say that my answer is correct here however that was very powerful to me.
    To me what he meant was obvious- you hate death because rather than thinking in terms of the Final Judgement and working towards surviving that you have instead built your life around focusing on this life and building yourself up within it. He seems to saying that people destroy their souls by focusing on building themselves or things up in this world which will ultimately perish , that they wreck their Hereafters' by doing so, when they should rather prepare themselves to meet their Creator which would make them fearless in the face of death.
