  1. People are more aware and awaken than before! The fake kings/rulers times R Up! Because people are tired of their lies, propaganda and excuses to stay in power and party with their foreign collaborators. The reason such morons are supported by some losers and some morons is, they have no choice, only choice they have is to admit that someone or some group from other group, sect, religion, tribe, ethnic is right and their corrupt king/ruler/president or religious leader is wrong.. it is hard for some people, really need courage to declare the bads of your own as bad and the good of your rival or opposition as good...and inshallah as time pases more ppl realize and understand the truth and side with the truth, Justice and reality. ---------------------------------------------------------------- "We want to have a free Lebanon just like my friend has a free Palestine, This terrorist Hezbullahies made life hell for us who freed the country with their own version of Freedom, and they are friends of Iran and Syria." Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora "The Sunnis should stay out of Hezbullah-Israel conflicts, And Hezbullah should be blamed for starting the war." Saudi King Abdullah "I am really afraid of the Shia rise & influence in the region, and of A Shia crescent in our neighborhood" Jordan's King Abdullah "The Shias are more loyal to Iran than to their own countries, and we'll definitely defend Sunnis" Egyptian President Husne Mobarak
  2. Yes, he made very good points... But, unfortunately we don't see Muslims noticing such points that really builds 1st. A Personality 2nd. family or moral and 3rd. Society Our societies, mostly the youths who are in need of fulfilling their desires (sexual ones) have no alternative, they are (locked) *Halal is not giving to them in the right way, in the right time, no guidance, no opportunity *They are in conflict of seeking Haram, or not seeking it, they will be the victims of not going for Haram and + having nothing, or giving up their moral or religious values for accepting Haram as Halal and distancing themselves from their beliefs, and ignoring the rulings; and then that is creating the conflict publicly within the society. And when it is too late, it is offered, to be taken care of the youth, and again that takes years to rebuild. That is what I seen, myself, in Islamic societies when I lived in the East, or in Islamic communities in the West.
  3. Secretary-General of the Islamist Egyptian Labor Party Magdi Hussein: Egyptian Regime Prevents Us from Joining the Jihad in South Lebanon Following are excerpts from an interview with the Magdi Hussein, the secretary-general of the Egyptian Labor Party, which aired on Al-Manar TV on February 20, 2008. Magdi Hussein: We must put an end to the myth that Sinora represents the Sunnis. This is an insult to the Sunnis and to Islam. Look at his ties with the Mossad and with America, and all the kisses he bestows on that muddy-black woman, Rice. He is not, and cannot possible be, a Lebanese. We support Israel... I mean, we are against Israel. We support Arabism, and we will crush the collaborators. Like I told you, we are ready to go to Maroun Al-Ras. There's no need to fight down to the last Lebanese. By Allah, millions of Egyptians are ready to go to South Lebanon in order to fight, to bear arms, and to liberate Palestine. The Egyptian regime prevents us from waging Jihad. We try to support the Jihad of Hamas, and if it were not for the Egyptian regime, we would bear arms. Interviewer: Take it easy. I'd like you to relax... Hussein: No, I'd like to say that this is not an internal Lebanese issue. That business with Sinora must come to an end. It is a lie that he represents the Sunnis. The Sunnis have nothing to do with him. Video Clip
  4. Well, it is really something huge to bring 100s of evidence of who did what to humanity... What the atheists or the atheist and nationalists using the religion mask caused can not even be compared to what the religious folks did to our world... Just reverse back and read some chapters on 18th, 19th, 20th and even now 21st century and see what these atheist morons offered the world, from the start of fascism to the end of communism... we lost 100s of millions of people and almost half of the world destroyed.. I recommend you to watch this video: it is not that long, about one hour! Will explain some points, and the need of religion; Davos Annual Meeting 2008

  6. Survey: Americans switching faiths, dropping out The survey found the Roman Catholic Church has lost more members than any faith tradition. (AP) -- The U.S. religious marketplace is extremely volatile, with nearly half of American adults leaving the faith tradition of their upbringing to either switch allegiances or abandon religious affiliation altogether, a new survey finds. The study released Monday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life is unusual for it sheer scope, relying on interviews with more than 35,000 adults to document a diverse and dynamic U.S. religious population. While much of the study confirms earlier findings -- mainline Protestant churches are in decline, non-denominational churches are gaining and the ranks of the unaffiliated are growing -- it also provides a deeper look behind those trends, and of smaller religious groups. "The American religious economy is like a marketplace -- very dynamic, very competitive," said Luis Lugo, director of the Pew Forum. "Everyone is losing, everyone is gaining. There are net winners and losers, but no one can stand still. Those groups that are losing significant numbers have to recoup them to stay vibrant." The U.S. Religious Landscape Survey estimates the United States is 78 percent Christian and about to lose its status as a majority Protestant nation, at 51 percent and slipping. More than one-quarter of American adults have left the faith of their childhood for another religion or no religion at all, the survey found. Factoring in moves from one stream or denomination of Protestantism to another, the number rises to 44 percent. One in four adults ages 18 to 29 claim no affiliation with a religious institution. "In the past, certain religions had a real holding power, where people from one generation to the next would stay," said Penn State University sociologist Roger Finke, who consulted in the survey planning. "Right now, there is a dropping confidence in organized religion, especially in the traditional religious forms." Lugo said the 44 percent figure is "a very conservative estimate," and more research is planned to determine the causes. "It does seem in keeping with the high tolerance among Americans for change," Lugo said. "People move a lot, people change jobs a lot. It's a very fluid society." The religious demographic benefiting the most from this religious churn is those who claim no religious affiliation. People moving into that category outnumber those moving out of it by a three-to-one margin. The majority of the unaffiliated -- 12 percent of the overall population -- describe their religion as "nothing in particular," and about half of those say faith is at least somewhat important to them. Atheists or agnostics account for 4 percent of the total population. The Roman Catholic Church has lost more members than any faith tradition because of affiliation swapping, the survey found. While nearly one in three Americans were raised Catholic, fewer than one in four say they're Catholic today. That means roughly 10 percent of all Americans are ex-Catholics. The share of the population that identifies as Catholic, however, has remained fairly stable in recent decades thanks to an influx of immigrant Catholics, mostly from Latin America. Nearly half of all Catholics under 30 are Hispanic, the survey found. On the Protestant side, changes in affiliation are swelling the ranks of nondenominational churches, while Baptist and Methodist traditions are showing net losses. Many Americans have vague denominational ties at best. People who call themselves "just a Protestant," in fact, account for nearly 10 percent of all Protestants. Although evangelical churches strive to win new Christian believers from the "unchurched," the survey found most converts to evangelical churches were raised Protestant. Hindus claimed the highest retention of childhood members, at 84 percent. The group with the worst retention is one of the fastest growing -- Jehovah's Witnesses. Only 37 percent of those raised in the sect known for door-to-door proselytizing said they remain members. Among other findings involving smaller religious groups, more than half of American Buddhists surveyed were white, and most Buddhists were converts. More people in the survey pool identified themselves as Buddhist than Muslim, although both populations were small -- less than 1 percent of the total population. By contrast, Jews accounted for 1.7 percent of the overall population. The self-identified Buddhists -- 0.7 percent of those surveyed -- illustrate a core challenge to estimating religious affiliation: What does affiliation mean? It's unclear whether people who called themselves Buddhists did so because they practice yoga or meditation, for instance, or claim affiliation with a Buddhist institution. The report does not project membership figures for religious groups, in part because the survey is not as authoritative as a census and didn't count children, Lugo said. The U.S. Census does not ask questions on religion.

  7. Norman Finkelstein American Professor, Ousted From DePaul University, Declares Support for Hezbollah in Lebanon CHICAGO — An ousted American political science professor who believes some Jews have exploited the legacy of the Holocaust recently expressed his support for the terrorist organization Hezbollah. Norman Finkelstein, who resigned from DePaul University last fall amid criticism of his opinions on the Holocaust, told Lebanese television that his view of Hezbollah is "rarely heard" in the United States. "I have no problem saying that I do want to express solidarity with them, and I'm not going to be a coward and a hypocrite about it," Finkelstein told Future TV. "I don't care about Hezbollah as a political organization. I don't know much about their politics and anyhow, it's irrelevant." The Jan. 20, 2008, interview was conducted in Arabic; Finkelstein replied in English. Hezbollah, funded by Iran and Syria, engages in terror operations worldwide. President Bush and other U.S. leaders view the organization as an opposing force to peace in the Middle East, and it is listed by the U.S. State Department as a foreign terrorist organization. Finkelstein, who is the son of Holocaust survivors, said in the televised interview that Jews had to resist the Communists in World War II and the Lebanese people will have to make the same kind of choice about accepting or resisting Hezbollah....more....FoxNews Watch The Video ---------------------------------------------- What if this guy was an American Muslim? He could be already detained, watched, followed, and could faced 100s of problems in his daily life by Mosad or American officials. Freedom of speech/opinion only for Jews? Christians?

  8. May she rest in peace! I didn't know her, but seems that 'She dedicated part of her life to serve the online community and help people'... that will not go waste and inshallah jannah will be granted.... Ya Allah accept our prayers!!!!!
  9. I am confused, He was living in Syria for last 20 years and was a secret operative from Syria's capital? how could he manage this and trained, or instructed his fighters? Or he just went to Syria and then he was assassinated? Could the Syrians and Russia be behind this? Since the ex-communist are warming up for new Cold War and making things to happen? And can't wait to use the Islamist the same way US did against them in 1st phase of the Cold War? I mean iff he was hidden for last 20 years, and couldn't been seen why now?
  10. Biased! They have no knowledge of Islamic or Eastern World, but spending days and money to write nonsense articles! New Generation and Old generation (his main point) and the "clergy" From his experience of human nature, he is right, new generation to be replaced with the old generation, BUT, How do you know that you may face more "clerics" and more "clergy" ? Clergy, Insurgency, Independence is not a matter of one generation. Till the day Shiism and Islam is alive in Iran both clerics and clergy will be there. And they never know, in the future they may face more anti Western sectors that they may forget the ones they had during Khomaini or current regimes. One Example: Communist Afghanistan was replaced with Young Generation! and guess what? The young generation was not what one expected more atheist or more communist than the old generation, but THE TALIBAAN! They only hope that the regime should cllopse and a regime should be replaced with the intention of only listening to Western powers and have more loyalty to them and to their business rather to serve their nations. If not, What about the most backward government of Saudi and their Muftis and laws and clergies? No one is bothered there to have some sympathy for the new generation! The point: even the new generation goes on and kick out the religious figures, it may take religious and clergies to come back in few years, but if Khomaini or clergy kick the atheist personals out of power and country in an Islamic country, it may take them centuries with the help of outsider powers to return back, or maybe not!
  11. exactly! that is what I am saying! Hijjab is obligatory for all Muslim women (Sunni/Shia) In Islam there is dress-code for both men & women. For women covering their hairs is one of them.
  12. Who moved this topic from General/Politics to this section? I guess that was the right category, nothing to do with Iran War Strategy!
  13. Bro, the benefits these 2 countries may get from abolishing visas is way greater than few $$ fees that they may get from the travelers! Look at Europe!
  14. Iran, Azerbaijan to abolish visas Sat, 09 Feb 2008 12:47:25 Iran's ambassador to Azerbaijan says that travel visas for citizens traveling between the two countries may be a thing of the past. “The Islamic Republic is ready to eliminate the need for a visa to Azerbaijan to facilitate traveling and develop trade ties,” Naser Hamidi Zare explained. “Around 600 thousand people travel between the two countries every year,” he added. The official pointed out that the investments made by several Iranian companies in various economic, trade and energy fields in Azerbaijan is ample proof of the fact that the two countries have the potential to expand bilateral ties much further. “Iran and Azerbaijan agree on most regional and international issues,” Hamidi Zare concluded. PressTv It is really interesting and a good move! A new start for the so called Muslim countries to improve relations+++, trades, and political ties.
  15. What a shame! It is really embarrassing for a Muslim country which is a free country (I mean not under other the countries rules, like before Russian-communists or British empires, ...etc..) to ask its citizens not to wear the Hijab and ban the Hijab! Turkey did every possible evil act to be accepted in EU but failed. They were thinking the more they go against Islamic ideologies the better, and they'll be accepted by the European countries, but never worked. If you are secular, anti religion or anything, but how come you ask your own Muslim nation, a majority Muslim country to ban the "Hijab"? It is good to see they are slapping themselves back for the mistakes they committed in the past, and unbanned it..
  16. Well, I am not really sure of your 'insisting' to prove them sunnis while you have no backup or any source or reference. Wikipedia, sure, you can edit things there, but that really doesn't mean that people go there and edit and paste faulty information. In each article and source from Wikipedia: there are 10s of sources, books, online libraries and websites where the presented information taken from. It is as clear as the sun that both Zardari and Bhutto families are from Shia families and backgrounds. And even one Shia Kurdish link to Bhutto's family. I seen many of people who were Shias and when they lived in a majority Sunni areas, they use to do their Islamic rituals and activities using Sunnis sources. I seen many-many politicians even the low ranking people who never express that they are Shia and running their office. But, if you keep denying the facts, then I can not help. Most people claim that Jennah was sunni too, because he never expressed himself as being a Shia or Ismailia. But, do you think a Shia who goes to Imam Bargah and mosques and follow Shiism in public could ever become a president or prime minister of Pakistan? Where most ppl live the Jehaliya ages and are ignorant. I provide you 2 sources, I don't find such a necessary and important topic to bring quotes from my local library or travel to their villages and proof the facts, or sit 24/hrs behind the PC to do google search.
  17. It is a well known fact that both "Bhuttos" and "Zardaris" are Shias. If they deny it or Jenaza led by Sunni Mawlavi that really doesn't change the fact. POLITICS, that is why they lost their religion and faith. They are not able to campaign publicly and lead Pakistan by stating publicly that they are 'Shia' and even care. If you go deeply and read their families background, they were all Shias, especially "Zardaris" they are known for most of the people in their neighborhoods. Bhuttos always tried to stay away of this issue of Shia-Sunni to not lose any supporter from any of these sects. Unless you bring me the proof that Both Zardari and Bhutto families went to the Sunni mosques and converted to 'Sunnism' then that is something different. let me start from wikipedia: faroutliers.wordpress.com: We are not discussing here about who practices what and who confesses how; But, just to clarify if they were from the Shia families and background or not. And no, I never said Zardari is an invisible "Ayatullah" or Zolfiqar Bhutto was a cool "Ujatul-Islam".

  20. Iraq settles flag dispute Iraq's parliament has voted to adopt a new, temporary, national flag after the country's Kurdish minority said the Saddam Hussein-era banner is a reminder of his rule. In a rare act of unity, members of parliament agreed on Tuesday on the emotive issue, representing a symbolic break with the past. Without any serious opposition from Shia, Sunni Arab or Kurdish blocs, 110 out of 165 members supported the new flag, which is still red, white and black. However, three green stars in the centre, which represented Saddam's Baath party motto of unity, freedom and socialism, have been removed. The phrase Allahu Akbar (God is great) in green Arabic script remains on the new flag. The script was originally in Saddam's handwriting but was changed unofficially in 2004 to Kufic, an early form of Arabic calligraphy that originated in Iraq. The new flag will only last for one year, during which time discussions will continue on what the final flag should look like. Colour debate The Kurds had wanted the colour of the script changed to yellow to symbolise the Kurdish nation, but......more aljazeera
  21. Iran Warns Netherlands Not to Air Controversial 'Anti-Muslim' Film A senior Iranian lawmaker warned the Netherlands on Monday not to allow the screening of what it called an anti-Islamic film produced by Dutch politician, claiming it "reflects insulting views about the Holy Koran." Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, promised widespread protests and a review of Iran's relationship with the Netherlands if Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders' work is shown. "If Holland will allow the broadcast of this movie, the Iranian parliament will request to reconsider our relationship with it," Boroujerdi said, according to IRNA, the official Iranian news agency. "In Iran, insulting Islam is a very sensitive matter and if the movie is broadcasted it will arouse a wave of popular hate that will be directed towards any government that insults Islam. Wilders calls his 10-minute film "a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamicization, " and said it could air as early as this week on Dutch television. "People who watch the movie will see that the Koran is very much alive today, leading to the destruction of everything we in the Western world stand for, which is respect and tolerance," Wilders, the 41-year-old leader of the right-wing Party for Freedom, said last month in a telephone interview with FOXNews.com. "The tsunami of Islamicization is coming to Europe. We should come to be far stronger." Like other European countries, the Netherlands is struggling to cope with an influx of Muslim immigrants, and the newcomers are often relegated to working at low-paying jobs and living in high-crime ghettos. Though the Dutch boast of their culture of tolerance, tensions have been high, with some blaming rising unemployment and crime on newcomers from Muslim countries like Turkey, Morocco and Somalia. "I believe our culture is much better than the retarded Islamic cultures," he told FOXNews.com. "Ninety-nine percent of the intolerance in the world comes back to the Islamic religion and the Koran." FoxNews ------------------------------------ I wonder what the other Islamic countries, especially the West allies thinking when they confront such accusations and propagandas directed towards Islam. Shame @ 360`
  22. The Butho families always been secular and Unislamic. The same with most Pakistani politicians since its creation. It was by Shia Benazir Butho who sided with ISI and helped all anti-shia political parties to create a chaos in the country and benefit from high sectarian conflicts in the country, (1990s). How could someone who cares for religion or for her sect and Islam do such? No more sympathy for the ones who follow the path of their beloved hypocrite brothers of "Kufa". They are Shia. The only reason they didn't want to press more on this issue is that they want to have the support of different ppl in Pakistan.
  23. shabib, I agree! The independence of Bahrain and ruling the country by the majority is a 'must'.
