Z - ... You keep saying that there are no true Islamic countries..? Because they dont practice Sharia Law... I say thats a fortunate situation. Lives would be even more miserable if Sharia was imposed completely. Whats is it you are trying to say exactly..? Is it the wests fault that Isalmic countries dont follow their own religion to the letter of the law..? as well as everything else. Blame Blame Blame...& hope like hell that all these rewards come in the next life... you seem to despise this world and your place in it . Thats what it looks like to me.

If Sharia is so important to you - why dont you live by those rules. If you live in the west - you are free to do so... Just dont upset anyone elses life.. thats all that is asked. But it seems to me that this wouldnt satisfy. You NEED an enemy and to shove this cult down everyones throat. Well heres the rub. I reject everything Sharia and this backward mentality stands for. It's warlike, superstitious, and frankly evil. And besides all that - I love music, laughing, dancing, art, theatre, movies, flying kites (outlawed in Afganistan due to sharia). I like women to be my friends and equals - not mistreated baby factories kept ignorant and wrapped up in the burka... .. No Z - I think life under a truly Sharia edict would be hell... pure and simple.

I'm also not saying that Islamic societies havent contributed anything to the greater good of man.. & yes certain mathematical discoveries were made. Congratularions - I think that is wonderfull. My point is that I would like to see MORE of that. You cant rest on (very few) discoveries of 700 years ago & expect to be appaluded still. I dont think I need to remind you of the contributions made by non Islamic societies. Start with the computer you are looking at and then look around at everything in your life. . But of course they are meaningless... What about medicine, science. aviation, communications.....? These have given untold real benefits to the WHOLE world. My guess is that you will think that it has all come about by a smattering of mathematical equations introduced under Isalm. You are deluded. I wish I had a dollar for everytime I have read the same old stupidities dragged out. there is also massive disagreement as to Islams actual hand in many of your so called discoveries... But I say - take the glory and MOVE ON !

Now - you also seem to seem to worry about my soul and the next life...? well thanks but please dont bother. Spend you precious concern on the blatantly miserable lives being lived in many Islamic countries that is, I believe a DIRECT result of Islam and the teachings of the prophet (PBUH..?!?) . Not America, Not Europe, Not Israel, Not the Christians, Hindus, etc.... But thats takes courage. To honestly look at your faith without quivering over the repercussions real or percieved takes guts and a reasonable level of intelligence.

EXERCISE SOME.
