Submitted by weasel (Spain), Dec 17, 2003 at 02:08

- Violence: Do you condone or condemn the Palestinians, Chechens, and Kashmiris who give up their lives to kill enemy civilians?

We condone or condemn all civilian casuallity caused by muslim militants as well Israeli and US army.

we do not condone or condemn Palestinian's, Chechen's, Kashmiri's right for their freedom ,even if they kill occupation army personals.

- Modernity: Should Muslim women have equal rights with men (for example, in inheritance shares or court testimony)?

First It was Islam who gave right to females property rights 1400 years ago, long ago your western civilization even thought about that.
read this eye opener link :

- Is jihad, meaning a form of warfare, acceptable in today's world?
Jihad can be of many kinds ,
I am writing this post. this is my Jihad. Muslims should do every kind of Jihad ( peaceful )

armed Jihad is only allowed in case if your country is occuppied by enemy army.

- Do you accept the validity of other religions?
why not ? As Christians validate Islam we also validate Christianity.

- Do Muslims have anything to learn from the West?
Yes democracy and tolerance are good Ideas. but we dont want porn industry.

- Secularism: Should non-Muslims enjoy completely equal civil rights with Muslims?
yes , in every country

- May Muslims convert to other religions? May Muslim women marry non-Muslim men?
Oh so this is your plan to exterminate muslims. ask jews if they do so ?

- Do you accept the laws of a majority non-Muslim government and unreservedly pledge allegiance to that government?

And you said Saddam husain was bad . huh ?

I am sorry if majority is ethnic cleansing muslims or people from any other race , i can not stand by and watch them die .

2 good example of ethnic cleansing of minorities by majority governed countries
1. Bosnia ( 200,000 muslims killed by terrorist Christians ).
2. Nazi Germany where majority governed govt killed 6 million jews.

- Should the state impose religious observance, such as banning food service during Ramadan?

no there is no need for that .

-When Islamic customs conflict with secular laws (e.g., covering the face for drivers' license pictures), which should give way?
no there should not be any special treatment for any religion. ( Daniel Pipe I know you are in support for ten commandments )

-Islamic pluralism: Are Sufis and Shi'ites fully legitimate Muslims?
This is only point which is deviding all muslims of world, their population is 1 billion on the paper but all are devided. This will make Islam more power ful and less vulnerable to attack from outside.

-Do you see Muslims who disagree with you as having fallen into unbelief?

-Is takfir (condemning fellow Muslims with whom one has disagreements as unbelievers) an acceptable practice?

- Self-criticism: Do you accept the legitimacy of scholarly inquiry into the origins of Islam?
It is same as asking for legitimacy of Christianity, both can be discussed at same time.

- Who was responsible for the 9/11 suicide hijackings?
some muslim hijackers ( reason may be palestinian, saudi arabia ... ) what ever may be the reasons i condemn those attacks , and will do every possible thing to stop these kind of people .( if needed to inform authorities i will also do that )

- Defense against militant Islam: Do you accept enhanced security measures to fight militant Islam, even if this means extra scrutiny of yourself (for example, at airline security)?
why not ? this is for better ment of muslims too , but racism should not take place on those occassions.

- Do you agree that institutions accused of funding terrorism should be shut down,


Q. when are you going to stop funding state sponsored terrorism by Israel ?

except freedom fighters who are fighting by rules ( ie no civilian casualities ).

or do you see this a symptom of bias?
some times

- Goals in the West: Do you accept that Western countries are majority-Christian and secular or do you seek to transform them into majority-Muslim countries ruled by Islamic law?

( Average muslim opinion ): In All a muslim can do is to invite person from other religion and show his part of truth , It depends on person if he accepts it or rejects it, There is no pressure of any kind . And if the person accepts Islam...no one can stop that person from accepting Islam ( by force ).
