wow, you must be desperate, my friend. i excercise enough for the both of us, and i do feel that i'm quite in shape. if that is your last statement (which is usually the one which is supposed to leave an impression), then im honestly not amused. i say there are no islamic countries because there arent any. shariah law is to be implemented by a state (i.e. the Islamic State); for the individual, the law is to follow the Quran and Sunnah. If it is your opinion that living under Shariah law will be bad, then i can do nothing to change that opinion. the facts, however, we will all come to see. I do not blame the west entirely (though i may have made it sound that way) for the situation of the Muslims today, however, i do blame the ideology they follow as the reason for us being in such a terrible situation.

Again, Shariah law is to be implemented on a State, not a person (discussed above). Islam does not need an enemy (why would we be fighting against the enemy if we needed them?!), however, it seems that it will inevitably have many enemies for quite a while. that's out of my hands.

in regards to women, your statement is dispicable. mistreated baby factories? i have to tell you, my friend, that you are quite wrong in that statement. Islam gives many rights to the women, and if you knew anything about Islamic texts, you would see that their rights are emphasized more than the rights of men. in the Prophet's (pbuh) last sermon, he explicitely told his people to respect the rights of Women. in the Quran, there are numerous references to fair treatment (that is, just treatment) of the woman. in regards to their being covered up, you would never understand. your being a slave to your desires, you want nothing more than women to walk around half-naked, dont you? modesty means nothing but slavery to you...but that's out of my hands too.

in regards to the computer i'm looking at, it would never be possible without the advancements in mathematics made by the Muslims. so you're out of luck there. also, i didnt state that advancement because i wanted glory...i said it because you asked for it in your replies to me.

as for your last statement, i think you ought to take your own advice.

my regards.
