Now you showed your intellect, i.e. only abusing Islam & Muslims and nothing else. Instead of replying my direct question you all ( Infidel, Simon, Pupil and Devasahayam etc.) fled from giving those answers, and caught another person to discuss as per your programmed thoughts.

You all ran away when faced with reality of Americana's Imperialst designs, exposed, in my my posts, and starting your work at other places as an employee, who is paid to do his job any how. But for you all I am giving some more quotations of emminent people, exposing American Imperialism ( are you reading Simon):

'How can the American and British governments claim they want to keep civilian deaths to a minimum when they use cluster bombs?

They call it military utility - I think it's more like carnage. Most cluster bombs contain around 200 bomb lets many of which fail to explode leaving a deadly legacy for decades to come. Once the war is over people forget the long term impact of war on civilians and meanwhile explosive remnants remain on the ground for decades to come.

In the two years after desert storm ended in 1991, unexploded cluster bomblets killed 1600 Iraqi civilians and injured 1000s more. The military put the failure rate of those cluster bombs at 5% or less but during the last gulf war it is estimated that in some cases up to 40% were left on the ground live!" (Ashin Addissa Wuntha, spirtual head of Teravada Buddhists in North America)

"George Bush and Tony Blair have talked about a road map for the Palestinian people. Let me tell you something about that roadmap. It has 3 phases.

The first phase talks about the end to terror and violence. We have an answer to that, there is a simple way to end the terror and violence - let the Israeli army withdraw from the West Bank and Gaza today!

There is a second phase to this so called roadmap where they talk about the "option" of an independent Palestinian state. Let us say to them clearly, there is no "option" for a Palestinian state - it is a right for the Palestinian people.

The third phase of this so called road map talks about effective Palestinian security performance. What does that mean? It means that Ariel Sharon will have a veto on any progress towards discussions for peace because the Israelis, as they have in the past, are quiet capable of creating provocation's and then turning around and blaming the Palestinians. There are no exceptions of an Israeli veto on the rights for the Palestinians for self-determination. (Dalai Lama, Spirtual head of Tibet Buddhists)

"You can bomb the world to pieces, but you can't bomb it into peace" (Ashin Uttama, the Thai Teravada Buddhist Monk)

"This war could have been avoided; the Americans know that, the British government knows that, the whole world knows that. It was never about finding weapons of mass destruction. This was a war of occupation! To develop a new colony to pump out the oil and the other materials for the benefit of the west. ...in reality the real looters are those that are preparing to loot the oil out of Iraq.

The Americans have made it very clear that whilst George Bush, Dick Cheny and Rumsfeld and all the others might well claim this is a war for the Iraqi people to decide their own future, they the Americans are going to choose the government of the future, they the Americans are going to make the Iraqi people pay an unpayable debt to the rest of the world, they the Americans are going to ensure with British support no doubt, that the Iraqi people remain subjugated and impoverished for decades to come.

There is tragically an ever wider agenda than this in the occupation of Iraq. We see the re-imposition of western colonial power in that region. You will see a pipeline open from Mosel through to Haifa, you will see the oil being pumped and you will see a deed ignorance of the continued killing of Palestinian people... " (Ashin Ananda, the high Teravada Buddhist Monk of Srilanka)

"We were told that Saddam is an evil person - but we already know it. It is because he was an evil person that is the reason he was brought to power in the first place by the Americans - because they wanted an insane person, an evil person to attack Iran to stop the revolution spreading and also kill his own people. We also know that when Saddam bombed Halabja with chemical weapons it was America which said we are not sure who has bombed the Kurdish people maybe the Iranians have done it. We have seen the hypocrisy all along.

Whenever Saddam is found - there is already a demand that he should be tried for war crimes. But I want to see if justice has any meaning - that other people who have aided and abetted him like Reagan, Thatcher, Bush senior and Rumsfeld, they should also be tried for war crimes..." (Master Nobu, Japanese Zen Buddhist Monk and head of Zen Meditation center in Chicago)'
