  1. Very good presentation by Sheikh Yusufali. Thanks SAHF.
  2. inshallah, may cooler heads prevail.. this seems so ridiculous. it smells more like the pretext-making of western warmongers or disloyal iranian expats. it is far-fetched to believe the Iranian leadership had anything to do with this. it is difficult to imagine any calculated benefit for the Islamic Republic. the track record of lies and pretexts spread by the imperial powers for starting illegal wars should be quite recent everyone's memory. i know who not to believe. the 1% and their media.
  3. I completely dissociate from ever having said anything nice about this guy. i was duped. my b s detector must've been off that month. http://mondoweiss.net/2011/09/bernard-henri-levy-philosopher-for-hire.html#comment-361715
  4. maybe an educated religious muslim woman doesn't appear as a guy would expect.
  5. wa alaikum salam, For Followers of the late Syed Fadlallah, Ramadan starts on Monday August 1st: "The Juristic Committee of the Institution of His Eminence, the Religious Authority, Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) announced that the scientific data and precise astronomical calculation it obtained indicate that the astronomical birth (central conjunction) of the crescent of the blessed month of Ramadan is on Saturday, July 30, 2011 at 18:40 p.m. (GMT); that is, at 21:40 a.m. Beirut summer time. Therefore, since the crescent can not be seen anywhere in the world on Saturday night, neither
  6. Salam alaikum, I thought Zareen or others might have something more to say about this subject. Is Democracy in Indonesia fact or fiction? The article below can be found here:
  7. 'Pay no attention ma'am to the men holding the guns, they have no function. Just walk right on by.'
  8. sure, it was passed along by someone else elsewhere. the comments seem particularly well-informed for both sides in the discussion.
  9. More of the article at the link: Friday, July 1, 2011 Galileo's Curse by Amir Taheri To deny facts of the past is more difficult than making outlandish claims in the present. The western press has as long as I can remember classified the Iranian economy as in a "destructive downhill spiral". Statements of deep recession, stagnation and utter self-implosion have also been written to describe this economy of 70 plus million. Much coverage and reference was devoted in the last year to bleak reports from the IMF and the WTO on Iran's economy. (Un)strangely enough, when two weeks ago a delegation
  10. Abu Dujana, can you fear monger a little more? http://www.leader.ir/langs/en/index.php?p=contentShow&id=7890 is that all medicinal plants except cannabis?
  11. how does Islamophobia in America compare to Irano-phobia in Saudi Arabia, or B'hai-phobia in Iran? How easily could I go around talking about the virtues of American society if I were in Qom? Racism together with rational and irrational phobias exist in all societies, the question is how responsive are those societies when it comes to recognizing and dealing with its own flaws. Every nation and state is a work in progress.
  12. is freedom of speech a guaranteed right in the Islamic Republic? is it a guaranteed right in the UK? is PressTV the only "news" outlet who could be considered a propaganda machine? it is the UK who is applying the double standards in this case.
  13. go sip some tea then. oh wait, that's a drug too.
  14. there is like a 16 page thread in the bros forum which discusses the subject in detail. shouldn't b e hard to find.
  15. all i have to say is it is a good thing muslims are not racist or discriminatory.
  16. God has told the Muslims that divorce is okay if necessary though it is discouraged. God has also told the Muslims that sex for pleasure within a marriage is okay, therefore non-permanent forms of contraception are permissible. FounderChurch, are you saying you know better than Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì?
  17. Is the Shaitan a conservative or a liberal? Is our nafs constrained by such trite categorizations? Our religion already tells us the origins of good and evil, your weltanschauung is useless. Muslims have it pretty good in the US, why would we want to revolt?
  18. You said that birth control (not abortion mind you, but birth control methods that prevent pregnancy in the first place) is akin to murder. So according to your logic that means the rapist who impregnates his victim has prevented a murder from happening. If that is the case, shouldn't the court overlook his rape? You also said liberals are evil. First, please answer Kadhim's criticisms of your usage of the words 'liberal' and 'conservative.' These are indeed relative terms and you have made no effort to give us your operational definitions. But let's just say liberal and conservative ar
  19. i was using your logic to show the absurdity of your logic. your basic assumptions on birth control are flawed. this was just one example.
  20. Will the rapist then who impregnates his victim not be held accountable for his crime since, by your logic, he has saved a life as a consequence of his actions, a life that would not have otherwise been had he not raped the girl? Using reason properly begins by first making the correct assumptions. From either the Islamic or the humanist point of view, your assumptions are flawed.
  21. Near the top of his opening post he says: "This topic is not well understood by either Muslims, Christians and/or other groups, yet it is the most defining fundamental affecting everyone's lives, in every nation and religion. The reason it is not well understood is that evil people (Liberals) in all groups want to suppress this sort of understanding. This delineation divides every group, even businesses, because it is endemic to the human nature placed in us by the Creator. In computer terms, it is the software installed in our brain at our inception." FounderChurch equates evil people with l
  22. Without question the onus of peace is on the Israelis. I am a Westerner but try not to aspire to such arrogance. Americans need a dose of libertarianism to coat our politics. We are not the World.
