Hey Samy....

at the top of the page Im discussing this matter with Aisha - read it!

Regarding history, its quite true that you were far more advanced than us babaric people in the north, we even owe you some of our own sience that should have been destroyed during the dark ages.
But is'nt it possible that we have come i front despite this? As you know we have had our religious wars in europe untill we finally managed to seperate the church from the state.

Is it possible that you're now facing some unrest in the future were youll be seperating Islam from the state?

A You see in the dark age the state was the nobles and the church who ruled and they thought of man as small, dum and in need of control in order to funktion.

B Later the king was appointed by the church to rule the state with many men who as small, weak and in need of guidence.

C Now the people are intelligent-, elastic-, independent- and free individuals who are the state.

People in the western world sees them self as point C. Where do you see your self if not B?
