More gems from our dear Jon the atheist (sic)

>Regarding your use of the word "Paki" - yes, this is an ethnic slur against South Asians. I know this because: a) I am not ignorant,

You are not ignorant! Really?

>b) I lived in the UK for a while, and c) any online or print dictionary can tell you the same.

Did I ask you if you lived in England or not? And do you think that I care if it is an ehtnic slur or not? OK let us have a deal: you can get your Allah to stop calling Jews: khanzeer wa Quruud and your Hindu ancestors: Kuffar and I will not use the word Pakistani. Deal?

>Pakistani is an abbreviation for Pakistani (which comes from an acronym, but also means someone from the "Land of the Pure" in Urdu). But the word is pejoratively charged because of its use by racists - like the "n-word" in the US (which I also find vulgar).

More isalmic nonsense. If there is indeed racism and hate then you will find it in the Qur'an. You see our dear Jon we mortals can love and hate but if the so called God of the universe hates like your Allah does in the Qur'an then we have a problem!

>What the Arabs call Pakistanis does not justify your use of the word "Paki" - which was clearly meant in an offensive way (and for no discernible reason). What was even your point in writing that? I still don't get it.

Well let me repeat it again: The arabs call your likes: Maskeen min al-bakistan (Thank you Khaled for such gem) You think you need to go after the Arabs first before you come here and lecture us and now you realize that such word has no meaning here in the US

>Your example of Jainism as an example of a peaceful religion is valid - there are unlikely to be very many violent Jains.

May be we all need to become Jains you included our dear Jon

> However, this is a pretty small religion and basically every other religion has examples of violence by its members against other groups - including for religious reasons. Christianity had a pretty bloody phase in the Middle Ages (remember the Spanish Inquisition or the Crusades?)

Hello: And islam also has a bloody history. Remember the Islamic crusades starting in 633CE? You tell us why did the Arabs invade the Middle East and beyond starting in 633CE? Let me guess: so Allah can get 1/5 of the loot! and did your Allah get his 1/5 of the loot collected from infidels as per Q8:41?

Oh and your ancestors the Hindus were brutalized by Islam. Remember the genocidal maniac Mahmud of Ghazni?

Oh the crusades: You will never find in Christian teachings any evidence that will support the crusades. Islam? That is a different story as your Allah tells you to fight in his cause and tells you that the lands of the infidels belongs to you and that your Allah will have to get 1/5 of the loot collected from infidels. Shame

> and a lot of atrocities by Christians during Colonialism (though usually out of non-religious motives).

Hello: And the same happened during Islamic imperialism/colonialism and in the case of Egypt that you visited "out of interest" or is it for a masters thesis and only Allahu a3lam. You need to read about the Coptic uprisings against islam and Muslims in the 830's CE and the brutality of your beloved Arabs and this is only one example

>Hindus have some pretty spectacular recent examples of violent riots, purges, etc. Even the Buddhists aren't immune from religious violence - Buddhists in Sri Lanka have killed other Buddhists (President Bandaranaike - killed by a monk) and Hindus (Tamils) in organized or spontaneous attacks (and also been attacked - as have Muslims - by Hindu Tamil extremists). Pol Pot even used Buddhist ideas of reincarnation to justify his mass killings. Religiously motivated violence is not exclusive territory of Muslims.

You will never find anything in the teachings of Buddhism or Christianity that will tell their followers to fight in the cause of their God. Islam? that is a different story. Your claim is bogus

I urge you to abondon islam and Arabian imperialism and be whole again
