Well Debanjee

I find your response amusing at best for its sheer determination to avoid answering the obvious.

As to my question in relation to countries that have laws that discriminate against other religions, you go straight for the issue of head scarves, well the penalty is a fine, so what? and your example of the 9/11 mosque shows your complete lack of empathy. 9/11 is an example of Muslim extremism that resulted in the murder of 3000 people. The 9/11 mosque was as culturally sensitive as the Nazi party wanting to set up a SS war memorial in the centre of Poland.

How about the laws that prohibit non Muslims to enter Mecca? Or the Muslim countries that allow the death penalty for Muslims who convert to another religion? Or do not allow the building of ANY new churches, or bibles unless defaced?

Your comparisons so how weak you response is. To further show how hard you try and avoid the inhumanity of your Muslim brothers you give this little gem in response to

Hall : 2) What countries have expelled millions of Jews A) Christians B) or Muslims C)

you said

Many countries have expelled their religious minorities in the past and present. Post-reconquesta Spain is good case in point

A good case in point?? Are you demented? that was over 400 years ago and involved a few thousand people. Yet you ignore the expelling of the Armenians, actually any non muslims by the Turks, the expelling of Jews form Arabia, the Greeks from Turkish occupied Cyrpus, or Edde Armin in Nigeria. Not to mention what has happened in Pakistan, and Indonesia. I find it funny you do not mention Stalin and Hitler, as they has the same policy of mass deportations. I guess I know why you avoided these comparisons, as the only countries besides those run by crazy dictators or Muslim majority countries have used mass deportations in the last 100 years.

Crazy Dictators and Muslim countries? Almost an interchangeable term.

Then to avoid the obvious and historical fact that the palestinian refugee problem was caused by the Arabs you say this

A) Regarding the Arabic leaders telling the Arab populations to leave voluntarily , I ask you this simple question , if the Arab leaders wanted to wipe out the Jews then why would they ask the Arabs to live those areas ? Was it not easy that the Arab leaders would ask the local Arabs to stay back and help in the fight against the Jews ?

OMG thats funny, are you trying to say that Arab leaders have a history of making good judgement calls? The Arabs arrogantly and publicly stated they would swipe Israel from the map and drive the Jews into the sea. They believed they were superior, and wanted to try and scare the Jews into fleeing. History shows what really happened Debanjee, you fantasy response is a JOKE.

As to successful societies, well I feel any of the top 25 countries ranked in the UN International Human Development Index is a great measure. It takes into account economic, cultural and social measures, and would all be considered successful secular societies. Sadly for you India is ranked 134th, so I understand why you do not understand what you are saying.

however your comment that

So is America successful ? I would say only a handful of its population can be termed as such while the vast majority lies dirt poor and most pitifully ignorant about their own conditions. So my point here is that the tag of being "successful" is too premature to be permanently bestowed upon any society.

Well Debanjee, compared to India, where you live, the US is successful. Do you really think the 800 million Indians who live on less than $2 per day would think that the poorest in the US are not fabulosly rich in comparison with 90% of the Indian population? You have to stop using Muslim propaganda sites as your source of information, you are sadly and foolishly wrong.

Not Muslim country has been ranked in the top 25 countries of the UNIHDI in the 34 years it has been calculated. India has never been in the top 100.

Your final rant

My Answer : I am well aware of the Jews. I am well accustomed with the works of prominent Jews like Howard Zinn , Noam Chomsky , Gilad Atzmon etc so I do not need your advice regarding Jews. In fact most of my arguments against your views have been formed by reading the works of Jews like the ones I have mentioned.

Clearly your views could not have been formed by these prominent Jews, I guess you Googled their names to try and add credibility to your public denial of reality.

Your final comment

From your overall comment it seems to me that you have basic templates through which you try to judge people whenever you see some online comments which are not supportive of your Worldviews. I call it biased. I wonder what you would call yourself.

The examples you use to justify your position demonstrate your spare peg in a round hole method of argument, your attempts to portray the US for example as a poor and discriminatory country, belies its 10 Ten ranking in the Human Development Index, where you live in a country ranked 134th?

The Bias exhibited here Debanjee, is yours. The proof are the fantasies you retell as opposed to facts and realities the rest of the world knows.
