Peaceful-sunni's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)



  1. "I used to teach sex ed when I was a middle school teacher. I found that a lot of students were unaware of the reproductive process. I think it's a good thing" I was very aware of it by this age accept i thought Muslim had to have sex with their clothes on other wise it was dirty.
  2. You wanna know here some links http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/specials...youngarabworld/ This is the biggest dease And, controversially, not in the house. The decision of the MBC television programme to withdraw the programme being broadcast from Amwaj Island came after protests against the Arabian version of the popular reality television show. Demonstrators in the kingdom numbered between 200 and 1,000 people, depending on which side you talk to. Twenty years on from 1984 and the state steps in. But what is all the fuss about? Did Big Brother really offend Arab cultural and religious sensitivities, or was it more a question of a small minority flexing its traditionalist muscles and playing on cultural fears? Cultural personalities The programme had all been pretty tame. The fear of the sexually charged antics and nudity that created such a loyal following for other programmes is a potent source of alarm and dread for many in the region In the house, the talk has been of how different Arab nationalities view one another and about learning each other's dialects for better understanding. The Egyptian housemate, Amal, is a beautician. She had been sharing hair and make-up tips with the other women. After around 10 days, some of the personalities were beginning to shine through. The Omani woman, Ala'a, who was the only one wearing traditional Arabic clothing and a head dress, came across as likeable, clever and perceptive. Bashara, the man from Lebanon, was a bit of a fashion victim - with his 20 pairs of trousers and host of bright shirts - but he was helpful and enjoyed pitching in with the cooking. 'Sticking point' Nevertheless, the cracks were starting to show through, too. Africa's Big Brother programme was praised for bridging cultural differences The Bahraini actress, Shatha, was upset because the other women in the bedroom were chatting and laughing late into the night and she could not sleep. Some of the women did not co-operate in the joint task set for the group, which meant plenty of negative gossip. Ala'a was disgruntled with the Iraqi-Egyptian woman, Ashagan, poking fun at the Saudi-Somali, Abdullah. Ashagan's defence was that she was fond of him. And that is the sticking point. Where does friendly fondness end and something more begin? After all, these are 12 young people living in close quarters for 24 hours a day for up to three months. MBC, the company behind the programme, has stressed how it adapted the house to reflect cultural mores. There were separate sleeping quarters for men and women, a prayer room and the call to prayer or "azan" was made in the house. 'Antics' fear But that was not enough for the critics. They saw trouble ahead. BIG BROTHER'S GLOBAL REACH Europe: Netherlands, UK, Belgium, Spain, Denmark, Norway, France, Germany, Hungary Americas: US, Brazil and Argentina Asia-Pacific: Australia Africa: South Africa Middle East: Bahrain There had only been faint innuendo, but the body language of "interest" had started. The female housemates were bolder than the males; many of the men seemed a little overwhelmed by their situation and more than a little shy. Nothing controversial had happened so far, but "so far" is key. Many of the other Big Brother programmes around the world have only become interesting after the first few weeks and this is what the critics of the Arabic version were anticipating. It is the perception of the Big Brother brand around the world that was worrying them, rather than anything that actually happened in the Bahrain house. The fear of the sexually charged antics and nudity that created such a loyal following for other programmes is a potent source of alarm and dread for many in the region. Disappointment There was a positive response among the programme's audience. When Bashara, Shatha, Ashagan and Najwa (from Syria) were nominated for eviction, MBC received around 17,000 calls in the first 12 hours alone. Advertisers were keen to take advantage of the show's following, seeing the potential as it neared its climax. MBC certainly has not ruled out continuing the programme with the same housemates and is considering moving it to another existing Big Brother house outside the Middle East. Among many ordinary Arabs, there is a feeling of disappointment and in some cases, despair. They feel upset that, in the current international climate, a programme which had the potential to show that young Arabs are just like young people from anywhere else in the world was shelved under political and religious pressure. Others say that at least one more taboo has been broken in the traditional - and at times stifling - atmosphere of the Arab world. Their hope is that the next time reality television comes to the region, the result will be a little less real.
  3. Why is there so much on here about free masons why don't we ask the freemasons what they think. here http://www.ugle.org.uk/ http://freemasonry.org/ http://www.thefreemason.com/default.asp?cookiecheck=yes&
  4. Well the good thing is that Islam in making a comeback in the Arab world meaning that there should be less discrimination.
  5. I don't trust these Iranian film maker there to anti-regimist and anti-Islam to Anti-islamist but anti-islam.
  6. i demand compelte obedance in my house hold. LOL No i don't mind most people should not express the same view as me because other wise it would be a boaring realtionship. Although i would draw the line at being a neo-nazi or a Muslim hater. " My parents are from Iran and I was born and raised in America...but married to an Iranian from Iran. My husband disagrees with the Islamic regime in Iran...and I was always pretty negative towards it but very indifferent when it came to expressing my view. But we both talk about the regime and since I can see his point, I now accept the fact that the Islamic regime in Iran isn't really Islamic at all. I just think that couples need to repect each other's view point and accept them if they make sense." Would he rather an American puppet regime where in charge instead because if this regime falls a Democratic all american puppet would replace it and there will be no hope for the world.
  7. Horoscope don't really perdict the future most of there advice is more common sense than forseeing the future for example they will say someone might come to you with a problem don't shove them off listen to them and provide a caring heart. that not predicting the future.
  8. I would like to point out that there are more Sufi Muslim in the world then there are radical whabbai extermists.
  9. George Galloway ex-wife Is a Muslim his daughter is a Muslim it a little more than poltics to him.
  10. I see and are these group Sunni or Shia
  11. "Rather, God created the first Adamic man 6000 years ago. So much for Islam being Abrahamic." Man has existed before Abraham we may be an abrhamic faith but we know that man older because in the Qu'ran it makes clear suggestion that man in older that 6000 years. "The 6 days are 6 twenty-four literal days which summarize the restoration after God made the earth desolate and waste in Gen. 1.2 because of earth's earliest ages of sin from fallen Lucifer, fallen angels and demons." Rigth lucifer lives on pleasent earth right! Beacause the earth is center of the universe right like there no other planets with other life forms. So you believe god needed 6 days to create one usless planet how do you answer people who believe in the Big bang. Like my self for example. You see we believe our God is almighty he doesn't need to take 6 days to do something to create one planest instead he take seconds to create whole universes. And he need no one. Plus my God is superior because he the only one that exist he is free from Human error. He is one and nobody least of all one carperter is even in the same light as him. It the arogance of man thinking him like God. So Church why are you here on these board? And i am gonna leave you with a quto from Marlyin Manson "The way i see it you need to be saved to go to heaven (according to Christian docturine) you need to be yourself to go to hell"
  12. "Seriously, I would be embarrased to celebrate anything this former lapdog of Saddam said, even if he was supporting my position. One of George's endearing shennanigans Are you still sure you need more idiots like George speaking for your cause?" Firstly Saddam biggest lap dog was Donald Rumfeild and Ronald Reagean. Galloway was the only Politicans to condem the Gassing of the Kurds in 1987 by Saddam not etheir the British or US goverment did that at the time. He condem the war against Iran the Iraqis where fighting. P.s. it was hailrous becasue that women was trying to out samrt him and he laid it into her.
  13. "I suppose we're supposed to swallow with a straight face the canard that Muslims are not guilty of the same? That Muslims are absolute paragons of virtue when it comes to accepting and encouraging critical examination of their faith, be it by themselves or by anyone else?" Yes we Muslim are good and examing our faith why do you think there is a Sunni sect of Islam a Shia Sec of Islam and many other. In fact what did you think Sufism was all about?
  14. Ok let the Christians reject rational thought. I mean the world is 6,000 years old what where you thinking and the world created in 6 days laugable. Christ was a Jew not a Christian in his world he couldn't go to hell nor could his Jewish people but the Chrisitan who where not Jews can. Weird....
