From your last post, Another One :
"- i don't submit to al sharia law,But even if i was,i've nothing to fear since i don't
kill,rape,commit fornication,steal..etc my sins are minor thank god..also i cannot sympathize
with the scum from thieves, rapists,killers they should have thought about it before doing it."

Tell that to Hatun Surucu, 25, born and raised in Germany, who was forced to return to Turkey to marry a cousin in 1998. A year later she gave birth to a son in Berlin and refused to return with her husband to Turkey. Shot three times in the head by her little brother of 19, after being lured to a bus stop by all three of her brothers. How proud their parents must be. Her sin? Being born of Muslim parents who didn't do a thing to save their daughter's life. That's my definition of 'scum', Anonymous. Now their daughter is dead and their three boys are in prison, and they are free to walk and breath and look down their noses at the 'sins' of their daughter. What self-righteous hypocrites!!!

Tell that to the 5,000 women were victims of honor killing in the world each year. Killed by their fathers or brothers. I doubt they were rapists or murderers. They probably turned Christian, which you failed to list in your reasons for honor killings.

I wonder if you or God would think it's a minor sin to just sit back and passively allow such attrocities to happen, while deep down agreeing that they deserve what they get, even though you yourself don't practice it. It reminds me of the Christians who provided such great entertainment to the Romans while being eaten by lions in the arena. Was it just a 'minor sin' to be a member of the audience to those events?

Tabari IX:69 "-- We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in Allah's Cause. KILLING HIM IS A SMALL MATTER TO US."

This is the attitude of your leaders, the words of your leaders, and it's definitely being taught to your young children.
