Syed, your ignorance is pitiful. Why do you continue to quote the Old Testament in your anti-Christian rants? Every Muslim's anti-Christian rant I ever read in this forum only quotes the Old Testament.
As Noah attempted to explain to you, Jesus arrived with a "new covenant," (Jesus' words). This is very basic to Christianity. Very basic. And easy to understand, unless one prefers the comfort of ignorance. If you want to insult Christianity, (you obviously do) then why don't you quote from the Sermon on the Mount? Pretty much the whole religion is right there.
By the way, rape is against the law in the United States. People who do it go to prison. No, the victim doesn't go to prison, the rapist does; we don't have Islamic courts here. And we don't need four witnesses to the crime either.
Syed, pardon my ignorance, we don't have temporary marriages in the USA. Could you please explain that custom to me? I know, Mr. Rafsanjani tried to explain it, but I still have trouble understanding it. Please educate me.
Hey, who has gone to prison for the murder of Zahra Kazemi? Anybody? How about for the murders of Dariush and Parvaneh Forouhar? Anybody? Are there laws against murder in Iran? Do the laws apply to government employees?
But we Americans just can't do anything right, can we? If we take out a vicious dictator like Saddam Hussain (Did he ever kill a Muslim?) then we're crusader infidels. If we let them be, like the Saudis. the Syrians, etc, then we're propping up dictators. Either way we're the bad guys. However, the simple fact is, the Arab form of government, (i.e., the most ruthless murderer gets to run the country) which they inflicted on Persia a long time ago, was in place hundreds of years before the USA even existed. But blame us anyway, who needs facts?
You mentioned Bosnia. Do you recall when the murder of Muslims there came to a halt? Right, when the USA sent troops (crusader infidels) there in 1995 to stop it. It had nothing to do with our national security; we simply risked our kids' lives to stop the murder of Muslims. We received your lovely thank you note on September 11, 2001.
Syed, do you have any Beethoven CD's? Mozart? Don't worry, I won't tell.
