Harrak,

I knew you'd reply with the Harrak swerve. A kneejerk reaction to being challenged.

Where did I say all the troublemakers were muslim?

"Ok..we can say the Sadr, Daawa, and IRC are muslims. the rest comprise Assyrians, Sabians and Christians..so Sabians + Assyrians + Christians are NOT Muslims"

But Sabians + Assyrians + Christians + MUSLIMS are in part. So at least half then? ( from the links you sent) By the way, .."The rest", where in your sources post did you link to the rest? I never saw any references to Sabians, Assyrians and Christians. Unless you are referring to the cabinet where I stated that 17 of 25 were muslim.

"and this discredits you and the infidel..but that was a good try..I salute your hunger to learn..""

I can see what you are doing but your arrogance belies belief sometimes. Your tone incinuates I am being deceptive and untruthful whilst showing contempt in your replies in some feeble attempt to exude your self perceived superiority over posters on these boards. I am not discredited, in fact it is the reverse. Until you stop posting drivel and actually back up what you say I will continue to point out where your responses are fallacious, substandard and inadequate. Good debate means discussing and addressing points that have been made rather than continuaously moving the goalposts when challenged.

Infidels original post stated:

"1) who are the foreign fighters entering country? Muslims.
2) who are the criminals and thugs who are kidnapping and killing and committing crimes? Muslims.
3) who is the insurgency? Muslims.
5) who are the infiltrators of the security forces and militia members and insurgents? Muslims."

You have still done nothing to dispel the FACT that in points 1 to 5 (not sure what happened to 4 ) muslims are involved in some capacity. Maybe not all are muslims, but muslims are involved.

I look forward to your enlightened and thoughtful reply.
Submitting....
