Mr. GIoK,
As mentioned before - the Old Testament is seen as more or less an historical document. Some of the events and practices of the people living in the middle east in those times (>2000 years BP) were barbaric. Nothing much has changed - but Christians and jews have moved on. Christians and Jews do not use that book to justify child sex or singling out anyone of any other religions for unjust or inhumane treatment. OR use it to justify suicude bombings of non-jews and non-Christians.

My Answer >>> It is true that Jews and Christians have moved on. But they are now using different moral ideas for justifying their amoral actions like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan like "War on Terror" and "Zionism". And they are killing more innocent people now than they used to kill when they used to believe in Old Testament.

You know what if you compare 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan , who killed more innocent people ?

BUt in Iraq and Afghanistan - NATO and the US is asked to stay there by the governments of those countries.

My Answer >>>>> Well those governments are nothing but lackeys of the CIA. What decision those governments make does not matter. The US presence in Iraq and Afghanistan is nothing but an illegal occupation.

Anti-freedom in the Muslim world?? What a joke.The Muslim world itself is anti freedom.

My Answer >>>> This is an inconsequential opinion by an inconsequential western person who is living in an politically insignificant land called Australia.

I would say that technically Chechens are more closely related to Iranians etc.

My Answer >>> Another incorrect remark. Try to prove that the Chechens are not white skinned , western Muslims ?
'I said >>>Talking about WWII you must admit that the Soviets did the bulk of fighting during that war. So should the Europeans not remember them also ?'
You said >>> Why 'must' I admit to a lie? They did the bulk of the fighting in their own country .

My Answer >>>> And who liberated the much of eastern Europe from the clutches of Nazi Germany. First learn some history and then start muttering something to me. Bye the bye how many people did your "Australia" send to fight ? We Indians fought bravely in WWII.

But most of the poor in the US have colour TV's.

My Answer >>>>> Another funny comment. Most of the people in the US cannot eve npay for their home loans and medical insurance premiums. Anyway I consider your comment another insignificant comment by another insignificant Westerner like you.

Tell me one thing what is the contribution of Australia to the world rather than being the attack dogs of British and American imperialism ?
