If you're going to make blanket statements - make sure that they at least appear that they could be plausible. You don't seem to realise that the international banking system is worldwide - not particularly western. It trades in Chinese goods and Chinese Yuan, Russian oil and Russian roubles, Brazilian oil and Brazilian Reals, goods from the EU and Euros, goods from the US and US dollars, UK goods and UK pounds. Incidentally , apart from oil - notice there's not too much in world trade produced by muslim countries.

All you have highlighted above is the Global nature of trade. The fact remains it was the Western countries who caused the financial problems due to their greed and self interest. As for the Muslim countries not producing any goods and having poor infrastructure those in charge of the Muslim countries Karzai, Al Maliki, Zardadri, etc are all doing as they are told by their Western masters. Its more the fact that these countries are kept dependent on the West and not allowed to develop and prosper. Look at the relations between the US and China. If every nation was happy to see another nation prosper the US will be glad to see China grow and overtake her economically and soon militarily which will lead to political dominance in the world. You are naive to think Western governments want whats best for other countries at the detriment to their own interests..

That's because of the exponential population growth rates of humans . And also because of technological improvements. One A bomb can wipe out 120,000 people and a huge amount of property much faster than 100,000 swordsman on horses. Also, Communism has wiped out more people worldwide than the 2 European World Wars. And do not forget that the Japanese in 1941 were NOT a Western power. Had they not been so stupid as to provoke the US into a Pacific War - the death toll for WW2 would have been much lower.

Proportianality is not the point.. More wars have been fought by Western nations then any of the previous nations. The development of technology giving rise to greater death and destruction is irrelevant too. Its more about using them. The West had no problem with using chemical weapons ie mustard gas by Churchill WW1 against Iraq, Atom Bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, depleted uranium during the Gulf Wars, etc

Garbage. Iran is full of people who resent the loss of their great civilisation to the scourge of Islam.

Rubbish... what Iran wants is to be left alone by the West.

If you are genuinely proud to be following a pedophile - how can anybody argue against you?

Does not deserve a reply. This is just ignorance.

Then why are so many, many Muslims sacrificing their 'independence' -- seeking to become part of the fold in those same Western countries????

It is simple. If Muslim countries were left alone and were allowed to prosper then you wouldn't have them coming over to the Western countries. However, there are more and more Muslims like myself who have been born and grew up in West. We work and pay our taxes and are law abiding citizens. So it is not that I as well as many others came over. At the same time, there are plenty of Muslims who come over as tourists and go back. In addition to this there are those who just leave anyway. I experienced all of these kinds of people so it is not true to believe that Muslims are forsaking their own lands to come over to the West. Just like it was not true to believe all Eastern Europeans were flooding the UK and were here to stay. By and large the majority have gone back and that is why we do not see as many sensationalist headlines.

You mean fifth column Muslim hypocrites who live in Western lands and want them to be destroyed so they can live out some glorious muslim myth?

Hypocrites... how many expatriates do we have of Westerners living in non- Western countries? Are they considered a Fifth Coloumn too. If you Muslims want to see the West destroyed and take over the lands you have been reading to many tabloids. The crux of the discussion is that Muslim countries should be left alone just as the Western countries want to not be threatened by the Muslims.

Thank You
