Our dear Ali Baba wrote this little gem

I'm not sure what the purpose of this criticism is exactly. Alcohol has been universally linked to numerous health problems,

Really? says who? so can you give us a list of the numerous health problems as well as the benefits after all why would Allah create something like alcohol that is bad and the truth is surprise surprise alcohol also has health benefits as well as risks just like eating your barbaric halal meat


most of which are life-threatening.

Sure and so is riding a car or walking minding your own business or flying and so is eating halal meat or any meat with all the cholestrol and triglycerides that can lead to heart attacks and strokes, obesity and hypertension and you know what? we all compare cost and benefit and we decide for ourselves something that you seem to have no clue about

So you tell us if your Allah indeed tells Muslims not to drink alcohol because it is bad for their health how come your Allah does not tell Muslims not to eat meat who is more harmful to their health?

And while we are discussing health: where would i find in the Qur'an anything close to Allah tells Muslims not to drink alcohol because it is bad for them as a matter of the fact Allah says in the Qur'an that drinking wine has benefits right our dear Ali Baba? So why did he change his mind? and was he wrong the first time or was this the silly abrogation you tell us

If any establishment makes healthy choices it should be lauded.

Then stop eating halal meat and stop fasting ramadan because this is not good for your blood sugar levels and stop bending and twisting your spine when praying because it is bad for your back oh and drink the urine of camels when ill so do you drink the urine of camels when you are sick our dear Ali Baba al-tablighee?

Should the FAA come under fire for banning smoking on flights in the 90s?

Then go and tell your Muslim pals in the failed state of Pakistan that the FAA is saying that smoking is bad and they should stop smoking!

Secondly, if the issue is alleged "creeping shariah",

No it is Shari3a and stick to Urdu

I'm not sure why it matters. If El Al refused to serve pork or fly during Shabbat, should it be criticized by outsiders or those who aren't company stakeholders? I think not.

Oh them Joos! Do us a favor stick to the topic
