You said "With the internet, I concur with Dr Ali Sina's prediction, found in www.faithfreedom.org, Islam will colapse. By itself."

Being exposed to Muslims media, and living in Arabic Muslim Country for most of my life, I think the young muslim are so much brain washed that they can't even think of leaving this cult. Fasting for them is becoming cultural habit, it means to them delicious food, night gathering, parties, etc. Some families save money all year long in order to spend it in Ramadan

They have new programs on Arabic channels directed and produced by young, modern and handsome guys, which are so appealing to young muslim generation, these programs are only talking about the peaceful and what so called qualities of Islam, they describe Muhammad as a unique person, muslim guys propose to girls who are wearing hijab only, but not girls without hijab. The social pressure is very high on girls to wear hijab. They look at uncovered girls (even with decent clothing) as if they are whores.

The Arabic countries I have lived in and visited are getting more religious day by day and more backward day by day. I see more beards, more hijab (women cover), more mosques , hajis, etc.

Muslims preachers are taking advantage of Israel and USA presence in the middle east in order to spread their hatred against the west in general. I heard one of the preachers a week ago saying that they are very close to control USA, Canada and Europe, they will defeat the west by the growing numbers of muslims living there. The more they are the more power they will get thanks to Democracy and voting system.

I get so frustrated when I see what is happening in Egypt, or Lebanon who used to be 80% Christians, not to mention Iraq that is getting worse by the day.

You can't imagine how much hate toward Christian Copts in Egypt, or Toward Christians in Lebanon

I really hope that you and Dr, Ali Sina are right though

On the other, I am wandering why AMK is ignoring my last reply to him, is this a boys club?
