"You are correct my friend"

Dear Oliver, before you affirm, I wanted to take a moment to look into these countries (Iraq, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and other Islamic paradises where Islam is practically the only religion?) and do the justice yourself.

Just to take economics (leaving politics and social life aside), you must be aware that all these countries that you have listed allow interest based banking prohibited in Islam and do not collect Islamic Zakaat (instead have other taxation systems).

Dear Oliver I tell you what, they are all practically non Islamic countries.

My love to you.
