My dear friend. you are almost right in your argument, but, then again, not even close. not only are you ignorant, but you have no true knowledge of Islam nor do you wish to. you follow blindly the media and popular thought and give not a thought about whether your accusations are true. it is people like you who give Islam all the more reason to fight, and it is people like you who are proof of the corruption in the West (and the rest of the world, for that matter).

with that said, let me point out a few things. for one, WHERE, in Allah's name, did you find in the Quran or hadith/Sunnah (sayings/actions of the Prophet (s)) that the beating or sexual abuse of women is supported?! in fact, Islam is the ONLY main religion in the world that specifically places the DEATH PENALTY to those who violate the honor of women (i.e. by rape or adultery). unlike your barbaric religion so wonderfully represented by the amazing "superpower" called America, where rape and adultery (not to mention premarital sex and open sex like animals) are not only prevelant (that's an understatement) but in some cases are even PROMOTED in popular culture today. how many women have had their honor stripped of them by a man who couldnt control his desires, and then how many women have had to watch the same people who disgraced them walk the streets (just ask Kobe Bryant or Bill Clinton...they'll tell you)? it is YOUR barbaric ways in the west that condone the dishonoring of women. YOUR barbaric ways that support and encourage premarital sex and adultery (how degrading is it in this corrupt place for one to be a virgin?). and YOUR barbaric ways that lead this world into chaos.

now, about the nations that are Islamic run...you are right in a sense. however, you fail to realize why. in the Quran and Sunnah, it has been promised that those who give up serving Allah's cause (i.e. serve a worldy cause) will be humiliated in this world and the next. now, today, there is NO real Muslim country. NO country in the world follows the Shariah (islamic law) the way it is supposed to be followed. i realize that it is misleading today, especially with all those who proclaim themselves to be truly "muslim" countries, but it is the truth. actually, most "muslim" countries are puppets of the West...that is, they take orders from and follow the way of the West. they have given up serving Allah's cause, and are therefore humiliated in this world. so i do not contradict you when you say that they are not peaceful, because they are not truly Muslim countries...if you had any knowledge of islamic Shariah, and you examined the governments of the so-called "muslim" countries, then you would surely agree with me.

the punishment for stealing, though, is completely just. lets go back to your barbaric ways and make a little comparison. here, it is so easy to steal. so easy. one can steal something, spend a couple years in prison or on probation, and then go back to wandering the streets. simple. nothing learned. no real consequence. in fact today, it is encouraged by popular culture to steal and make chaos...(face the fact, everyone today wants to be a "gangster"). today, being nice and humble is looked down upon (people call you gay, a pushover, etc.), and you dare to call us barbaric for punishing those who steal? if one misuses the hands for evil, then he/she has no right to have them. the feet are cut off when that person tries to run from law enforcement, and again, misusing the feet to try to escape justice means that you do not deserve them. the hands and feet are a gift from Allah (literally meaning "THE GOD" in Arabic) and you have no right to them if you are going to use them to cause FITNAH (chaos, injustice, basically the word to describe the West today [and admittedly most of the rest of the world as well]).

all that said, you ought to take some time to seriously consider whether you know everything you should about Islam before you call it barbaric or before you put down its ways. you ought to look at your own self, your own barbaric ways, and see just who the real threat is. so, to reiterate your words, it is YOU who is uninformed (or uniformed...perhaps a spell error on your part? ). my regards.

Submitting....
