>Is that the best you can do? Again, I am getting tired of your same old hate buzz words. Haven't you come up with any new ones yet??? But on the real tip. You need to stop being an Islamaphobe and Racist.

And you need to stop being a victim of Arabian imperialism and oh I forgot that your Arab masters call your likes maskeen min el-bakistan

>Let me correct you there. You see, only 25% of Muslims are Arabs. 75% are not Arab so there goes your conspiracy theory of Islam is Arab imperialism. That is rubbish. Stop being so scared about nothing to do.

But the Qur'an a book that you cannot read in Arabic because you ain't no Arab says that islam is really the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only (Q14:4) now how can we tell those 75% and the other non HIjazi Arabs (sic) in places like Egypt and Syria and Palestine etc...that they joined the wrong religion?

>Islam is very good for me my friend. It is a blessing and I am blessed to be a Muslim. I say Democracy and Islam will eventually prevail. Islam is good for America and America is good for Islam. Islam will save America and America will save Islam God willing. Islam can be a blessing for you as well if you submit, God willing. There is good and bad in both cultures and if we take the good from both and leave the bad from both it would be awesome.

>For example, if we obeyed the Islamic prohibition of no drugs,

Where would I find in the Qur'an a book that you cannot read in Arabic because you ain't no Arab that al-islam yuharim al-adwiya you will not find it

> alcohols,

Most people have no problems with alcohol and alcoholism is a disease and if any one is to be blamed here then it must be your Allah and there is a saying in Arabic al-mamnuu3 marghuub and do you think for a minute that people do not consume scotch in Saudi Arabia? they even call their favorite scotch Yuhanna mashi and if you have it on the rocks it is called yuhana mashi bil talj oh you can ask one of your Arab masters to tell you what this means and so much for the hypocricy of Muslims

>and gambling then a think crime would go down in murders, rapes,

You mean to tell me that there are no murders or rapes in Pakiland? Really?

>suicides,

Suicide in the ultimate complication of depression and if we are to put the blame on some one then it is your Allah that should be blamed

>car accidents,

So you tell me: are there no car accidents in Pakiland with Islam and all? What do you think?

>liver cancers, etc...

So you mean that if we all stop drinking alcohol then there will be no more liver cancer? Are you for real?

>It would save many lives and the spiritual awakening from just submitting to God's will is the most peaceful and tranquil.

Oh he is also the same God (sic) that demands to get 1/5 of the loot collected from infidles and tells you to chop the this and fight the that and kill and be killed (Q9:111) so much for the god of peace

> And if we avoid Riba (Usury) then we would not have the economic melt down that we are seeing today. Just a couple of good things that could benefit America.

Oh voodoo economics. Her is your Economics 101 lesson for today: What is really money and interest?

1. It is a medium of exchange and a value of a commodity is what the seller and the buyer would agree that it is

2. It is a measure of value. So let us say that you buy a house today and you pay $100,000 and then you decide to sell it in a year and let us say you get $110,000 you made $10,000. Right? Well you made 10% is this riba? Well it is. So next time when you sell your store front Mosque and you make a few bucks then do not take them

3. Money is a store of value so do not accept more interest made on your accounts but your are the loser as if I did not know already

4. Money is a standard of deferred payment so if you decide to sell your house and finance it you will be the loser if you do not get it that the value of money today is not the same as even tomorrow

So much for riba and for Allah's voodoo economics

peace
