Thanks for calling me Light, as that is what my last name means
I can't call you two-faced, Janus, Ianus, for it's a distasteful name. How did I know, I googled it.

Anyway, I promise not to bomb this forum. Don't make it seem like all Muslims blow themselves up, that's not fair. You seem to be an educated person, and for you to say that shows ignorance.

Ianus said.

> Barely exists? Or there no statistics as any statistician trying to do reliable research and display the result would risk his death...

Muslims are taught to hide their shortcomings, as not to affect their siblings, family, society etc. For instance if a boy has a girlfriend, and he makes out with her in front of his little brother, its most likely the younger brother will do the same thing, and that will lead to sex before marriage. Jan you know that is HARAM right. In the west we have Sex in the City, etc, it is freedom of speech to show whatever in TV but I wonder what that teaches to our young ones. " don't say anything about censorship because they have sexually suggestive material in cartoons". Don't tell me the gay parades don't affect the minds of young ones who might have a broken heart, etc.

> How about happy harem life with regular husband-beating over there?...

A beating, which is not whipping, or can cause injury. It's to scare more then it is to hurt. Note, a wife can divorce her husband for a simple reason as snoring.

Harems, living quarters reserved for wives and female relatives in a Muslim household. I don't know why you said this, but if your referring to polygamy, we can talk about its benefits on the next posting.

> It's the fifth commandment, Light ...
If you're not sure about something , google first , will you!
Which commandment is it in the Quran, though ? My googling brings no results.

According to the Qur'an, killing a person unjustly is the same as killing all of humanity, and saving a person is the same as saving all humanity. (See 5:32.)

Critics of the Quran now a day have habit of quoting phrases to make them look bad. Anyone can do that with any religious text. Take the following for example

"I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the long-haired heads of the enemy." (Deut. 32:42),

so don't do that when you answering me back.
> Suicide bombing and terrorism is legal instead, isn't it?

Suicide bombing is not legal in Islam. Its frustrated people who are doing this, who are being mentally enslaved and being told everything they believe in is wrong and should follow the west or else. You know most of the Slaves from Africa were Muslims, we see what happened to them. "After this, whoever exceeds the limits shall be in grave chastisement" (2:178

> ...'Convert or die or pay jizya'...- a Muslim invitation card...Thanks, the Nur (Light)...I'd better do without.

That is if there was a truly Islamic state, and it was attacked, and it captured the attackers, Like POW's. But sense there is no real Islamic country with the Sharia as its supreme source of law, I don't know what your talking about. No time in history did a Muslim ruler attack a non Muslim country without provocation first. So the convert, die, or pay jizya rule is in place if a Muslim country is attacked without provocation.

> Jinns exist , the Quran(=God's word) says they do. If Renan is of a different opinion "I guess I have to disagree with Ernest Renan on that point."

I don't know what you were trying to say there, but if Jinns do exist, like the devil, same concept.

>Do you think I am an idiot , Light?

No not at all, I actually think you're an intelligent person. But "here it comes", I think Allah has closed your heart to the truth, and made you see this life as the everlasting one, forgetting one day you will die, and one day you will be placed in tiny grave, and everything will come back from the cemetery except you and your deeds. So when your in that small grave and the angels are questioning you, your going to say, Woe be on to me, why did I not believe in Allah and his messenger. LOL, I really don't think you're an idiot just in need of some repentance.

> How can you do this, Light? Some intellectual jihad (your main mission),refreshing brain terror, hadith-intimidation, quran bombing , Middle East-style verbal beheading here and there...your weaponry must be infinte as the ways of Allah who has sent you on this "main mission"!

LoL, your style is plain. If any Muslim says anything you immediately term him A terrorist, a jihadist, etc. Weak

I am not even out of college yet, and I can debunk most of your ridiculous hateful statements. What do you think if I was educated, lol it wouldn't really matter, because most the people that come to this website only want to hear one thing, ISLAM IS THE ENEMY, LETS BOMB MECCA.
