  1. Reminds me of the two Palestinian women who met and started talking to each other.One takes out pictures of her children to show her new friend. "This is Mohammed, he is a martyr." She flips to the next picture and says, "This is Ali, he is also a martyr." The other women states, "They blow up so quickly, don't they?"
  2. You've lost me. What point are you trying to make? We are talking about deliberate intention of murdering people, not as occurs in time of battle. Can you understand the difference or do you choose not to?
  3. What is meant by Jihad? I've asked Muslims and get different responses.
  4. True story? I've seen this joke several times before with many different locations for the lighthouse. Origins: The story of the self-important aircraft carrier captain getting his well-earned comeuppance at the hands of a plain-speaking lighthouse has been making the rounds on the Internet since early 1996. Most writeups purport to be transcripts of a 1995 conversation between a ship and a lighthouse as documented by Chief of Naval Operations. It ain't true. The anecdote shows up in a 1992 collection of jokes and tall tales. Worse, it appears in Stephen Covey's 1989 The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, and he got it from a 1987 issue of Proceedings, a publication of the U.S. Naval Institute. It's likely far older than that, because another reader mentioned he saw it passed around as a photocopied joke in the late 1960s while serving aboard either the USS Dixie or USS Truxtun. That certainly agrees with the opinion of Navy sources (as quoted in the news article later on this page); they place the story as being thirty or forty years old. Slightly different versions name different ships as the one which unwillingly gained a lesson in the unimportance of self importance. Having debunked this tale a few times themselves, the Navy has a web page about this legend, one that answers what three of the commonly cited ships were doing at the time this supposedly occurred.
  5. I don't know about the Quran, but the Bible does not say they are superior to any other. The Bible says we are all created equal. In those days man was becoming so pagan and worshipping all sorts of pagan gods and craven images. God chose a people, who He would lead out of this pagan way of life, to be His chosen people. A people who would follow Him and learn His ways. He had to train them to be totally obedient to Him and He dealt very harshly with them to bring them to that point or total surrender and obedience. He trusted them to write His Holy Bible and to teach people the ways of God. Christianity, as well as Islam, has it's roots based on the teachings of these people.
  6. I can't believe what I'm reading here. People who think they are better than others? I never read that God taught us this. I refer to the words of Jesus. When the Pharisees confronted Jesus complaining about this very thing of "clean" and "unclean" Jesus said:"You are holding on to the traditions of men." These Jewish leaders argued with him again and complained some more and this is what Jesus did:(Luke 7:14-15) Again Jesus called the crowd to Him and said, "Listen to me, everyone, and understand this, "Nothing outside a man can make him 'unclean' by going into him. Rather it is what comes out of a man that makes him 'unclean.' Then when the disciples came and asked Him to explain it further, He said (Luke 7:20-23)..."What comes out of a man is what makes him 'unclean.' For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man 'unclean.' Makes more sense to me.

  8. Other people who have defected from Iraq say she is speaking the truth.
