Lisa, have you heard of the saying "Do not cast pearls before swine". That is exactly what you are doing here. For people like Harrak it will be difficult even to comprehend what you are stating as they have been 'brain washed from birth' and it continues throughout their lives. They can never open their minds to question what they believe, as it's not allowed.

Freedom of thought and action are precious freedoms that we in the west enjoy, after we threw out the shackles years ago. Why do you think that hoards of Muslims leave their so called paradises and creep into the west uninvited? They leave these hell holes to escape oppression, corruption, squalor, poverty, illiteracy and so on, but when they come over, they cannot handle the freedoms in the West and they try to impose the very 7th century stupid ideology that they escaped or left behind. It's pathetic how deranged these people are, so do not try to reason with them; they don't have the capability of independent thought or action. There thinking is still stuck in the 7th century demonology.

Be happy and carry on with your life rather than get frustrated with people stuck in the middle ages. Indeed, today, this is the reality of Muslim society—a society that is on a journey riding a strange camel to fit with religion! In this age of supreme advancement of science, when the chain of religion is gradually being loosened elsewhere, when humanity has achieved so much with the age of reason, the age of discovery and the Enlightenment which all seems to have by-passed the Muslims. They are to be pitied. A relentless effort is mounted by them to perpetuate the religion-based sheer exploitation of the gullible devotees by brainwashing them. It is a very clever strategy, no doubt—trying to repackage religion in modern science. It is a kind of drug and many people are hooked on it. Under the morbid influence of such a powerful narcotic, people have really started to believe that the 1400 years old scripture do augment the theory of ‘‘Big-Bang" or the concept of time dilation is really contained in some verses of those ancient scriptures. What a pity! What a catastrophe! Who will free this nation of Islam obsessed with religion?

The simple question one must ask is, Why are they here if the West is so bad, why don't they just leave? No one invited them here in the first place and no one is holding them back from leaving. Your guess is good as mine, they never had it so good with all the refinements the west has unfortunately they cannot cope with it as they are so brain washed. They cannot think for themselves.
