Pavlov's dog? Very funny. Pavlov could not have hoped for a better example of conditioning than people bowing down to Mecca five times a day.

"....and you dont know anything about islam and you are talking doltishly doltishly.."

perhaps they know the bits about Islam that you are afraid to see or acknowledge

"...you are talking to us according to your deity,s propagandist text.."

but if he/she may well be an atheist - so how do people with such diverse backgrounds come up with the same common? Don't blame the media -most are too gutless at the moment to call a spade a spade.

"i am a muslim.. and i know myself very well than you.."

You'd be surprised how little you actually know - even of yourself. see this article on the 'Johari window' and take it in.

johari window four regions

  1. what is known by the person about him/herself and is also known by others - open area, open self, free area, free self, or 'the arena'
  2. what is unknown by the person about him/herself but which others know - blind area, blind self, or 'blindspot'
  3. what the person knows about him/herself that others do not know - hidden area, hidden self, avoided area, avoided self or 'facade'
  4. what is unknown by the person about him/herself and is also unknown by others - unknown area or unknown self

"........I am NOT "scoundrels, liars, murderers, terrorists, worshippers of the nomadic death cult and primitive brainless savages that want to deprive me of my freedom and my civilization."

You as a person living in a country which aspires to EU membership , may not be exhibiting ALL those characteristics but you believe in myths which we do not . But many Muslims in many areas of the world , when acting together under the auspices of their 'religion' quickly find the lowest common denominator . See the exploits of the Taliban for a recent example.

what a incredible sound(s).. who inserted that 'islam' your brain.. jewish media..??

What a fine example of this inordinate hatred of the Jews. We find it on this board as a consistent thread from Muslims in parts of the world as diverse as Indonesia , Pakistan and India. What on earth have the poor Jews done to ANY of these people? What have they done to you?

And you talk about Pavlov and conditioned stimulus! What reaction do you have when you see the characters 'J', 'E' & 'W' strung together on a paper or a screen. What synaptic cascades happen for you?

Why don't other religions have problems with Jews? Could it be because their scriptures are not completely littered with anti-Jewish sentiment as the corny Koran is?

"stop insulting to muslim.. because a stupid guy have to be quiet if doesnt know.."

So anybody who criticises your world view is stupid, by your definition? How can you possibly expect to progress if you're not open to seeing fallacy for what it is, when it is? And if you want to talk about insults, Muslims should stop insulting the collective intelligence of the rest of humanity by actually believing the absurdities you do believe in and acting them out. In short, Muslims insult themselves by their actions toward non-Muslims (and other Muslims vis a vis Darfur currently.)

"Unto you, your moral law, and unto me, mine !"

Moral law is not negotiable - evil is as evil does.

"i wish, you,ll learn about the truths.."

They have learned the truths of Islam - that's the whole point and that's the part you don't get - and you will forever be unable to unless you have the courage to mdrop the myths you've cocooned yourself with.
