I can sense you're a proud Muslim, Syed. Let me ask you something: What are you proud of? Are you proud of Muslim accomplishments? There's been many, haven't there? (I just can't think of any off hand.) Muslims use everything the West has produced and take advantage of our culture where it fits them.

We create flying machines and use them to transport people to places in the world they'd never see otherwise, and almost every Western country has contibuted in some way to air travel, yet what have Islamic countries used our creativity for? Hijacking and flying them into buildings - using them for mass murder and getting concessions from Western states. We invent the computer and internet to help us communicate with each other and get tons of information at our fingertips, and the Muslims use it to recruit terrorists, plan their evil deeds, and show beheadings to the death cult Islamic world.

It was an American geologist that discovered oil in Saudi Arabia when the Saudi King commissioned him to find aquafurs of underground water, and it was American and British engineers that made and built the means to extract that oil; the Saudis did and have done nothing for it except collect the money...what an accomplishment. Take away the oil exports and all 22 Arab and Islamic countries put together can't even export more than little Finland does by itself. Great. Art? Nothing from the Islamic world. Technology? Nothing. Medical discoveries. Nothing. Israel - that little sliver of land and people sandwiched in between 22 countries populated by people who hate it - produces and contributes more than all of its neighbors put together, and its people have won Nobel Prizes in all human endeavors across the board contributing to the advancement oif human-kind.

There's one thing all of you have in common that keep you from accomplishment and advancement: Islam. It's a stifling religion that discourages inquiry, advancement, curiosity, or questioning. It's a religion that does not allow for investigation and thinking outside the box. It's a religion that freezes the mind in one place and never allows for the wamrth of sunlight to thaw the freeze. It's dark and cold in Islam. It's really too bad that that so many people are born into this retarding school of thought - shall I say Death Cult - that limits their lives so much and makes the world a more dangerous place when its followers commit themselves to the dogma and tenents of it. Those people who follow Judaism and Chrsitianity have been warned by God of a false prophet, and for hundreds of millions of people on this planet Mohammed is that. Look at what that man has wrought. Look at what he has done to you. Wake up, Syed.
