...you said you want sharia only for muslim countries.

Well, here's what the highest cleric in egypt said


He pointed out that Islamic Sharia is the practical application of all acts of the people in life, for both Muslims or non-Muslims, and that it took into account every detail of the conditions of human life from birth till one meets his God, explaining that the practice of Sharia was in the area of general issues concerning the rights of God or the people, namely the 'punishments', as the scholars put it, which have been enacted to protect the rights of God and His servants.

So who should I believe?... because the highest authorities of islam want to impose sharia on everybody


the radicals are not powerful?


ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is more popular in Pakistan than President Pervez Musharraf, according to a poll released Wednesday.

It said it polled 1,044 people across Pakistan between August 18 and August 29.

It said his approval rating was 38 per cent behind 46 per cent for bin Laden, the architect of the September 11, 2001 attacks who is believed to be hiding on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Bin Laden's ratings jumped to 70 per cent in the Islamist-ruled North West Frontier Province.

Seems that Bin laden is a real hero among your fellow muslims
