OK Grand Infidel, you're right about the mentality in the countries that are not secular.

But,

First, I am not non-Mouslim, in contrary I prefer to be a Mouslim. But I'm also very happy living in a country that is secular. To be a Mouslim means to be innocent in every aspect. No lies, no killings, no theft, no explotation, not to be arrogant, instead share your wealth, your food, and if you are not good to people Allah does not accept any of yor prayers and worships. This is the essence.

Islam is supposed to improve accordingly to the human development. Kuran says, Allah gave you mind, who does not use it is not a good Mouslem. Besides, there are many traditions that belong to that time and that place and thus to that community. These are also included in the book and Hadis'. Sheriat laws were meant to improve the social life, to improve the status of women (who were treated lower than animals in those days) to a better being, (now none can be acceptible ofcourse, it is really written in what circumstances can women be beaten-so that they would not be beaten to death as it was then etc.) the trade relations and so on - OF A COMMUNITY LIVING IN THOSE PLACES AT THOSE TIMES.

Instead of the essence, taking nonimproving rules as the centre of your life is far away from using your mind. Belief is between you and God. In Islam one of the greatest revolution compared to all previous religions is that THERE IS NO RELIGIOUS PRIESTHOOD between the person and Allah. You are always all alone with Allah in your heart. And dieties are strictly forbidden. So much forbidden that it turned into prohibiting paintings and sculptures (again an exaggerated decision, far from the real objective).The religious personalities are allowed only to teach. That is all. Other purposes are strictly forbidden. No one can represent you in front of Allah and ifever any one claims that he or she is the worldly representer of Allah's wishes he has done the worst sin according to Kuran. A person should obey only and only to Allah.

But, what do we see now? We see people using Islam to control and exploit his community, with both roles; as the president and as the religious leader, in the non secular countries.

And, there is another truth now. Since the Western countries have imperialistic dreams and goals over the oppressed communities which many are ruled with Islam, when they oppose or contravene this hostility are only and wrongly regarded as religious opposition. And so it became true and the real resistants to imperialism are the Mouslim countries. The others try to zigzag around the problem. If this goes on like that, ─░slam will be the only power which resist imperialism. Then the community of those countries will have no opportunity tochange the sheriat laws, but instead will use all their power to resist the imperialistic savagery of the West. And some of the West loves to name it a religious war, to hide away their emperialist wishes and savagery. And... and also, all the evil will look as doable to the Islamic communities since they are the ones who are killed by the bombs everyday in Afghanistan in Irak in Palastine and without any discrimination of innocent and children,

The world has a new turning point; The effort of the powerfull countries and leaders to make all the people of the world as similar as carbon copies.

Religion is only a part of this dream. The same way of living, the same thoughts, the same beliefs, the same way of consuming, the same food, the same education, the same games, the same understandings about anything, the same children, maybe no children, controlled population, controlled behaviours, controlled entertainment, controlled reading, controlled talking, controlled internet, controlled art.... i.e a very big village full of puppets.

Every single person should resist that.
