  1. Hello, Sorry to re-appear but I could not help myself. Once again an American liberal has fallen prey to fake news. While even one school shooting is too many, the info Notme posted is false. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/no-there-havent-been-18-school-shooting-in-2018-that-number-is-flat-wrong/2018/02/15/65b6cf72-1264-11e8-8ea1-c1d91fcec3fe_story.html?utm_term=.64921f4ffecd All the Best, David
  2. Hello, Not a single rebuke from fellow Shia Chat members or Edits from Shia Chat Moderators? But, to date, there are two likes? This post clearly violates Shia Chat rule number 4, No swear words, unmannered replies or racist comments, especially when directed at other members. A warning followed by a temporary ban shall be met. If a member repeats their offensive or racist language, a permanent ban will take place. No excuses. Overt slogans of "death" or "destruction" (or similar wording) of any specific government, nation, people, group, or religion is not permitted. Howeve
  3. Hello, But, you did not clearly show which were your words and which were mine. At this point, only you and I know for certain. Therefore, it is not a proper edit. As Gaius I. Caesar said above, "do I honestly need to spoonfeed this to you?" All the Best, David
  4. Hello, lol, that is the definition of edit. When editing, it is common etiquette to note what is edited, who did the editing and why. Oh? While I am not comparing the two, we can have multiple mutah post each week but the mention of Hugh Hefner passing is too "adult" in nature? All the Best, David
  5. Hello, Because it is a current event and this is the current event section of Shia Chat. For better or worse, Hugh Hefner was an iconic figure. I tragic figure in my opinion. Despite his wealth and fame and party lifestyle it seems he never found happiness. A lesson for us all I think. Also, if web site admin wants to delete the post then do so. But, unilateral editing of my post smacks of third world level censorship. All the Best, David
  6. Hello, Kind of an end to an era. https://www.yahoo.com/news/hugh-hefner-founder-playboy-dead-031914304.html All the Best, David
  7. Hello, This is interesting. "Earthquake In North Korea Sets Off Alarm And Speculation" (23 September, 2017, The Two Way) http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/09/23/553127805/earthquake-in-north-korea-sets-off-alarm-and-speculation Yet, both China and South Korea are saying it was not triggered by a nuclear detonation. I think something major has occurred inside North Korea's test facility. All the Best, David
  8. Hello, Do you think this is possible in the Middle East? All the Best, David
  9. Hello, How can one justify promoting a Palestinian State while advocating against a Kurdish State? The British and the French have been blamed for almost 100 years for dividing up the Middle East along somewhat arbitrary lines after World War I and the fall of the Ottoman Empire. But now, when an ethnic group whats to reverse this and regain control of their native land they are met with resistance by State's that have pointed their finger at Britain and France for years. All the Best, David
  10. ^ Hello, Thank you for the response. Please provide references for the following. All the Best, David
  11. Hello, I ask this not because I want to create a kerfuffle. But, because I am trying to better understand Muslims. What references can you site for the above views? And, Why would Allah care about such a thing? All the Best, David
  12. ^ Hello, Maybe Hillary. Since no Clintons are in office, they have shut down their "Pay for Play Foundations." http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jan/16/clinton-global-initiative-lays-off-22-as-donations/ And, Bill is not getting the $750,000 speaking fees he was used to when a lot of the World thought Hillary would be the next President of the USA. So, Hillary is know out peddling her "why I lost" book to pay the bills. All the Best, David
  13. Hello, Yes, Bernie is such a good guy, "Bernie Sanders slams billionaires, gets reminded he owns 3 houses" (Washington Examiner, 20 April 2017) http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/bernie-sanders-slams-billionaires-gets-reminded-he-owns-3-houses/article/2620865 All the Best, David
  14. ^ Hello, Too far fetched to blame it on President Trump. All the Best, David
  15. Hello, I am not justifying anything. However, the general news narrative is the Rohingya Muslims were a peaceful group minding their own business. And, they were pounced upon by evil bloodthirsty Hindus. When ever I see such "good versus evil" journalism I do a little investigating. I think Aang San Suu Kyi view is obvious. She does not believe Muslims and Hindus can live together in the Rakhine State. Therefore, she is ignoring the atrocities that are occurring during their removal. All the Best, David
  16. Hello, Is this sarcasm? All the Best, David
  17. Hello, Some interestng background to the this crisis, http://thefederalist.com/2017/09/13/west-nothing-rohingya-crisis-myanmar/ All the Best, David
  18. ^ Hello, You do not have a smart phone? How do you keep up with the latest conspiracy theories? All the Best, David
  19. ^ Hello, NATO sent 400 aircraft and sent 60,000 troops enforce the Dayton Peace Agreement. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Deliberate_Force All the Best, David
  20. Hello, Just trying to share a great experience I had. There is no need to turn everything into a confrontation or debate. All the Best, David
  21. Hello, Israel does not stamp passports. You receive a little piece of paper showing you have passed through customs. It is not hard for Muslims to go to Israel. But, it depends on what passport you hold. A Muslim with an American passport does not need a visa. They can go whenever they want. A Christian from Iran would need a visa and might not receive one. As mentioned, the area is historical to all three Abrahamic religions. But, at the moment, only Muslims have free access. I was somewhat lost in the Old City and was approaching a "Muslim Only" gate. I was stopped by
  22. Hello, Thanks to everyone for the responses, very informative. It seems Shia Muslims have a very progressive view regarding birth control. I see one Sunni responded and was against birth control. Do Shia Muslims practice this behavior? And, is the Sunni view versus Shia view accurate? All the Best, David
  23. Hello, Sorry to ruin your World view Faruk, Myanmar working with China, Russia, to avoid UN rebuke over persecution of Muslims (Business Insider, 09/06/17) http://www.businessinsider.com/myanmar-working-with-china-russia-to-avoid-un-rebuke-over-persecution-of-muslims-2017-9 "We are negotiating with some friendly countries not to take it to the Security Council," he said. "China is our friend and we have a similar friendly relationship with Russia so it will not be possible for that issue to go forward." All the Best, David
  24. Hello, I read articles such as this, "A disaster in the making, Pakistan's population surges to 207.7 million" (The Washington Post, 9 September 2017) https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/world/asia_pacific/a-disaster-in-the-making-pakistans-population-has-more-than-doubled-in-20-years/2017/09/08/4f434c58-926b-11e7-8482-8dc9a7af29f9_story.html And, we see mass migrations from Muslim countries to the West as they look for opportunities. Opportunities that, in many cases, do not exist in their native country due, in part, to overpopulation. So, I am curious, what is th
