when you said
(showing the Western society as "hollow": drugs, homosexuality, children born outside of marriage, divorce, old folks homes, blah, blah, blah.)

this is what it looks like to us... you know in Tv's and magazine's. we see what is going on from the outside just like you people seeing some men blowing themselves up and think that we all do the same... and actually this is what you people show us in your movies!!

i dont mean that you all are like that but am trying to prove that you should really think with your head befor judging anyone!! am I wrong with that?

(Let's not forget your obscure study stating we're the unhappiest country in the world. Who did the study?)
well.. this is what does it look like. maybe it's not true.. but you have to know that we are not the unhappiest people either. I havent heard about The School of Economics too .. well I dont know everything that exsisted around the world?? do you?

(How happy are your women? Your man has several wives? Great. Stay in that marriage)
again.... our MEN CAN'T have a several wives anytime he wants.. there is rules for that... his wife has to aprove him getting married... he cant marry without her accept...the law will not take this as a correct marrage.. and the second law is to have a good reason for the second marrage.. like his wife cant have kids or like sexual needs... (again with his wife's accept).
(By the way, many of the drugs in our country come from these so-called non-westernized countries that are apparently looking down their noses at us. I think Afghanistan has a corner on the opium market. Praise Allah.)

WHY DO YOU PEOPLE THINK THAT WE APPROVE AND SUPPORT WHAT OUR LEADERS DO? and why do you think that we accepted what Afghanistan do? yes we know that drugs started to grow here too.. we are trying to fight it.. but not of hands..they are coming up from nowhere....do you have a solution?

(We aren't forced by our government to do anything religious.)
hahahahahahahahahahah who gave you the idea that our goverments does have any religons??? who told you that they are praying to god all the time????
the only country that it's really doing what Quraan says is Saudi Arabia...
and by the way it's not our fault that we have been born uder people who only care about themselves ... so dont put all this on our shoulders...

(God has given us freedom of choice "free will" and we either pass the test here on earth or we don't)
yes that is correct and I agree with you . we have this "free will" that you're talking about .. but please JustMe .. correct me if am wrong... i dont think that this is have to do whith anything we are talking about. you people are mixing everything with freedom and we tried to explain to you that we are FREE and not in a locked box. why are you keeping on telling us somthing that it's not correct....???? we're telling you the truth we are not in a present... please believe it... we are NOT LOCKED UP......we know what does it look like outside. this is our country and we know it more then you people.

when you said (Maybe it's the men in your society that would really hate it if their women had "real" freedom) maybe (if you wanna go back to history) men use to not really like it if thier women went to work ..cos you know they had this stupid thought that he is THE MAN.. and maybe he didnt like her showing her hair cos he dont want other men to look at her or get attention to her.. he wanted her only for himself ...( by the way that was long time ago in your own society too) but now everything has been changed. they are more openminded now...

last part you said was very correct ... yes we dont know you ... this is why we SHOULDNT judge you ... well that goes for you too...

JustMe.... I read a lot of your comments that made me believe you're the most recpectful person in here and i still believe that
you have the right to be mad. it's your society. I wouldnt believe you if you said that anonymous was 100% right about everything she said.. cos still it's your country... you should and have to love it and protect it, even by words.
god bless you

no offence
thank you
