I can't believe how smart she is."
...I guess it's a compliment. ...
"By the way. I dont have to apologize if my co-religionists 1000 years ago enslaved Christians (evidence?), "
no ...it didn't happen 1000 years ago, LOL
The Janissaries comprised infantry units that formed the Ottoman sultan's household troops and bodyguard. The force originated in the 14th century; it was abolished by Sultan Mahmud II in 1826 in The Auspicious Incident.
1829 is not 1000 years ago, but we have already established you muslims are really bad at math
Again, who's the smar one?
And about slavery nowadays:
This is also to reply to your assumption that in darfur muslims are killing muslims, unfortunately it's not true, as everything you say.
"Those who are racist against Jews or Christians need to not be, as God tells us they are our brothers and sisters in monotheism."
you are polytheistic idolizing a caravan robber and a rock
"by the way susan, you cant deport me, i was born here, and my great grandparents came a looooong time ago. by the way, also, im not a convert."
"But seriously, muslims have to change and become better representatives of our prophet and more fair just people."
illiterate? You are very close anyway
robbers? (70% of people in jails are muslims)
rapists? (majority of rapes are by muslims)
I guess the fact that you fail to address that your prophet used to steal goods and money from jews for personal gain and you started thrown tantrums shows we are pushing the right buttons. ...
Mina Ahadi is a 50-year old Iranian human rights activist, who now lives in Germany. Along with 29 other people, she announced her apostasy from Islam, forming the "Central Council of Ex-Muslims in Germany". As expected, almost as soon as she had declared her abandonment of Islam, Muslim extremists began to send her death threats, and she has been placed under police protection.
In an interview with der Spiegel, Mina explains her position. She aims with her council to assist women who wish to leave Islam. Tomorrow, the group will hold a news conference in Berlin, to set out the Council's aims.
She states: "I haven't been a Muslim for 30 years. I'm also critical of Islam in Germany and of the way the German government deals with the issue of Islam. Many Muslim organisations like the Central Council of Muslims in Germany (ZMD) or Milli Gorus engage in politics or interfere in people's everyday lives. They were invited to the conference on Islam (hosted by the government in Berlin last year). But their aims are hostile to women and to people in general."
She adds: "They want to force women to wear the headscarf. They promote a climate in which girls aren't allowed to have boyfriends or go to discos and in which homosexuality is demonized. I know Islam and for me it means death and pain."
Mina sadly sees no hope for Islam to reform itself, to rid itself of its pre-medieval and sexist attributes.
