elegantly said but for this debate you cannot comment if you are merely going to read supporting evidence.

after all ,your faith is strong as is the fervency of your beliefs but there are no rich, countries wthat give a hoot about religion, and the flow of muslim traffic seems to be that way, so really none of you are coming to spread your faith per se. most arab (and of course pakistani/bangladeshi) muslims are coming to work. sunrise, sunset.

After all i could find prostitutes and gays and gamble in any country in the Middle East, even Saudi Arabia (one of the more ridiculous countries out there), seriously your women might be chaste and religious at home but the ones i met a university were total whores, drunken coke taking ones too, so were the visiting family members. If my girlfriend wants to wear a short skirt and walk down the Edgeware Road in London then so be it, maybe she should in exchange fo rnot being able to wear a Santa hat in Riyadh

Islam holds well in the middle east and iran because by and large these are poor, repressed countries where the majority of the population are poor and uneducated - or stupid as you might be forced to conceed.

I mean the Jews predate you as do the christians but you neglect to even think about that when complaining about rich, successful Israel. Of course sour grapes over them having some a;sp rich and powerful christian allies might be part of that, but really 'you' have hated the Jews long before you found oil or Zionism existed. lord knows they were the reason why the area was rich at the time europe was poor - not to say that the christians wre better, they were far worse for a long time, but what kind of idiots can't make a rich country whilst sittin gupon the most valuable commodity on the planet? stupid people of course.

It it just co-incidence that after Oliver Cromwell invited the Jews back to England, that the country became phenomenally wealthy? I doubt it, not that coincidence is correlation but you get my drift.

Islam is as ridiculous as Christianity and Judaism in that merely having a bunch of stories (or in Islams case, a bunch of drug and alcohol induced arguments between friends) transcend the realms of man kind of defeats the object. Indeed, British Common Law and the Cope Napoleon were definietely NOT attributed to religion per se and have been more successfully applied (even to Middle Eastern Countries) that Sharia or the Ten Commandments and so on.

I mean even the Dhimmi laws point out the inferiority complex Islam must have had if it felt the need to make someone else inferior by statute than merit. I mean look at the UAE, Saudi Arabs and Kuwait. All the work is done by foreginers who are thought of as the underclass, but travel to a more successful more enlightened country and the Arabs become the underclass, pitied for their beliefs, the women laughed at for being weak, the men disliked moreso for being so afraid of women that they need to control them.

I mean dial down the Islam and you might find everyone will care about you guys more and maybe not bomb you from a large boat in the waters you can't even control. Saudi Arabia is a country that exits as a reward fro Euroeans, if they had decided they wanted more they would have taken more. If Amerca had reaied 30 years earlier how little oil they had in Texas they would have definitely got involved and picked them off long before OPEC.

Really you need the Jews because history has shown the Middle East to be utterly incompetent and making money without them. my thoughts are that it would be best for everyone to abandn islam, Chrsitainity and Judaism because again (but particularly Islam because it requires the ritual which really must affect productivity - keeping you broke and ineffectual of course) the MIddle East and The USA seem to be incapable of using it responsibly. Swap Islam fr drugs and alcohol and you would definitely be better off, nobody woudl be willing to die in the name of those things are they're very real and just great!!!

my final point is, none of the things you have quoted for the Koran (or Bor-ing, (a stretch i know)) actually defend the point that religions are stupid. no matter what you can remember they don't validate what you think therefore you cannot be in this argument because you don't think what the Koran thinks, you consciously make the effort to supress your free thought as you have been taght (Indoctrinated) as a child (i imagine, if you're born again, geez get a hobby or get out there and meet someone, or come out of the closet, my top three likely outcomes for you)

so either say your own thoghts or don't bother, by yor logic, if i remembered the phonebook listings i would KNOW the people who were listed......... and we all see the flaw in that viewpoint don't we?????????
