in response to reader comment: DEAR ILYAS, WHY DO ALL THE POSTS ARRIVE AT NUDITY & SEX????

Submitted by Ilyas (South Africa), May 27, 2008 at 03:27

Dear Indian

A couple centuries back my great grandfathers were hindu Brahmins who gave up Hinduism for the truth and light which is Islam.

Secondly how can your cousin be your sister?

Thirdly same law that applies to stoning a Women who commited adultery applies to the man and instead of 4 witnessess for you can have 2 anyways and that just tells you how hard it is to get a conviction .

Fourthly hius adopted sons wife well she got divorced before he married her and the reason for the divorce was that his adopted son and the wife he divorced were incompatible hence the reason for the divorce.

And we finally get to Sayida Ayesha (May Allah be pleased with her), well her marriage to the Prophet (Peace be Upon Him) was very well intended and if you know about history and Islam you will know that many traditions have been narrated by her one of the main reasons of that marriage was that she will be able to learn alot more and hence pass it on. All that story about forcing a lady to marry her father in law because he raped her that is not Islamic Law that is Hindu Culture dont mix the two up. Like many places in the world what is a certain nations culture or customs often gets mixed up with Islam if somewhere along the line some one became muslim.

And from all that we pointed out we only talk about the sex. Lets talk about corruption, monoplies big corporates like Goldman Sachs and like do to the world economy by creating unrealisitc demand and shoratage. The opec countries have said that they would be happy with $40 a barrel compared to Goldman saying the price would be clse to $200 by year end. I did not defend any Muslim country or their leaders because for me there is no country that is run by proper sharia Law.

The whole point Mr Pipes and Co. is to bring to light your and most of your readers narrowmindedness about Islam , its laws and its beauty. George Bernard Shaw once said Islam is the greatest religion in the world , unfortunately the muslims are some of the worst. Hate the sin love the sinner as the they say.

This is typical CNN and Yankee mentality. When Mr so n so in Austria raped his daughter and she bore him 5+ kids then it wasnt a Christian or Jewish or Western Fundamentalist but if a Muslim had to do the very same crime that point of him being a muslim would have been front page stuff. The inconsistency in western reporting is quite alrming.

Proud Indian even Gandhi and the like acknowledged the Great Prophet of Islam(PBUH) but in this world of today it is the ignorance that will be flaunted. How sad that afetr all is said about the democraticly Elected Hamas etc all we took out was about sex. Rape, crime, murder, corruption, robbery, fraud and suicide(dont get mistaken with suicide bombings) are usualy common in western countries. Sects like David Koresh etc would never have survived in proper Muslim Countries.

Anyways take what you like and use what you like as it is said " for those whom God and sealed Guidance due to there own pride and self indulgence, there ears will not hear, hearts will not feel and minds will not comprehend"and so is there faith and destiny in utter darkness.

Lastly on the point of Freedom and democracy there is no country in the world that can say that they have total freedom and from all these so called democratic states the most liberall is South Africa. and it is here where you will find complete integration of proper muslims into a western society owning multi natinal companies yet they are freee to practise there riligion and they live in complete harmony with its government, people and institutions. Even in South Africa like Pakistan and India we have madressahs but how come you donot find the same muslim n west trouble here liek you find in other parst of the world and that is because the problems in the world are due to foregn policies and Israel allowed to have over 150 nuclear weapons and has fought more wars than Iraq, Iran and Syria put together over the last 50 years yet still Islamic countries wiht the same weapons are a threat to interantional security. A joke.
