Another one. In your post Mar 23, 2006 at 02:13 Justme ( More it's ! )

You predictably quoted from the Old Testament

"Deuteronomy 22:22 "If a man is found sleeping with another man's wife, both the man who
slept with her and the woman must die."

Deuteronomy 25:11-12 "If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue
her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you
shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity."

P.S "correct me if i'm wrong about those verses "

Yes those verses are as you say. Is this punishment carried out anywhere in the western, or
Christian world today??? That'll be a NO then !!!!

Yes there is a lot of fire and brimstone in the Old testament. Is it practiced no. Is Sharia law practiced today ?? ... YES we've got the videos to prove it.

You also said

"- The "westerners" aren't that much bounded by religion as they are by "freedom and

- In the middle east the girl MUST be virgin before marriage "that also includes christians and
jews",such a relation as boy/girl friend are practiced but never reachs "bed"before marriage.

- Ofcourse rules were meant to be broken,hence you can find some exceptions ."

Some exceptions?? This will be why young muslim men are trawling the nightclubs in cities all over the UK and I would imagine any western country in the world, preying on admittedly drunk infidel women to carry out their sins of the flesh, so that your own muslim women "remain pure". You'll see them every night walking out with a white girl. It seems Muslim men have got their cake and can eat it too. Carnal knowledge with anyone as long as she isn't a muslim girl. From what I have seen very few muslim men would be a virgin when taking to the marital bed for the first time. So far more than a few exceptions I'd say. I don't know for sure but I'm sure I've seen people quote passages from the koran that permits this behaviour. Or as you'll probably argue, they've just been corrupted by the decadent, morally barren west.

Reminds me of when I was at university when I got chatting with an Asian girl, Pakistani in origin. We were chatting , having a dance when a gang of young Pakistani men basically accused me of soiling her. I think the words were along the lines of "What are you doing with this infidel pig" She was doing nothing we were dancing. I thought I'd have to defend her as they were getting quite aggrressive, she didn't even know them. Yet more people living Islam. Wonderful!

I'm not going to get into a religious debate with you. I know nothing of your religion so I wouldn't disrespect you in that way. However, nor do I want to know anything about Islam. My personal opinion is that Sharia is wrong in a modern civilised world and cannot be defended, end of story.
