First of all, again, I would like to point out my respect for Faiz with regards to his his initial comment regarding canines and what he believes Islam has to say about the matter. I admire his comment regarding dogs, and how he applied his religion to this particular subject.

However, again, his latter comments regarding apologies from the free world are completely subjective and without basis. His argument is that since HE apologized for his fellow Muslims, regarding dogs, the West should apologize for Hiroshima and Nagasaki, etc. What he doesn't, or refuses to, realize is that war is ugly, and decisive victory involves, among other tactics, horrific, "dis-proportionate" numbers with regards to casualties.

This is how wars are won.

They are deterrence to future war.

My question for Faiz is, should Islam one day approach the same type of victory experienced by the victors of WWII, would Islam then hand over the conquered territory to the conquered? The U.S. did (Japan and Germany are not part of the U.S., Faiz - what do you say about that? ).

How about today, with Irac? Think HARD, Faiz, if an Islamic entity were to have taken out Saddam, would that Islamic entity then proceed to spend BILLIONS of DOLLARS in this situation, trying to foment EQUALITY and DEMOCRACY?

I thank Faiz for his reply, it was interesting, but one subject he did NOT address in his reply - DOES HE HAVE THE FAINTEST IDEA WHY HE ENJOYS FREEDOM IN CANADA?


Hint - the freedom he enjoys IS NOT based on apologetics.
