First of all...WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE THE MISFORTUNE
OF ARGUING WITH PEOPLE WHO CAN'T/DON'T
BOTHER TO READ MY MAIL PROPERLY?

****, It takes only a little bit of open-mindedness
to be tolerant of other religions. It takes a little
bit of open-mindedness to accept that maybe other
people may be right and you may be wrong.
BUT SOME PEOPLE JUST CAN'T MANAGE EVEN
THAT CAN THEY?

I shouldn't even be wasting my time on someone
who has closed her mind to everything other than what
she claims to be the truth. It's no fun. I replied
to your first e-mail because you wrote "Please know
that I mean no disrespect towards your beliefs, I was
just hoping you might help me better understand them."
I thought to myself...how nice to find someone
open-minded who is willing to learn so as to understand
better....BUT NO.....it seems to be you
started this whole this just so YOU COULD HAVE A
CHANCE TO HURL ABUSES AND SHOW OFF
HOW YOU ARE A POOR EXAMPLE OF THE
"OPEN MINDEDNESS" YOU CLAIM YOUR
WONDERFUL RELIGION PREACHES.
 
you wrote "I am bound to respect the faith of
all others."....you seem to have the liberty to
break that rule at your own convenience.

>>*****,
>>I have no idea what country you're from, but it
>>sure doesn't sound like any Muslim country.  Let
>>me tell you something.  Are you trying to tell me
>>that Iran is not Muslim?  I think you better look
>>that one up hon, they are most DEFINITELY Muslim.
>>You want to tell me that Arabs are not Muslim?
>>Man I don't know where you're coming from, but it
>>is common knowledge that both places are supremely
>>Muslim.

*****...do you want to have a serious LOGICAL
conversation here? Is there a SINGLE part of my mail
that says that ARABS ARE NOT MUSLIM????

is there? cos i sure can't find it.

I wrote

>>Many people, even muslims have been bullied and
>>taken advantage of by Arabians. I feel it is unfair that
>>you blame it on Islam. That is not Islam is about!

I ALSO wrote that they ARE Muslims but THEY ARE NOT
REPRESENTATIVES OF ISLAM. is that so hard to
understand? I did not deny that some Muslims
can be as your described. So many of the problems
are social ones! How narrow-minded to point fingers at
the religion!

only 18% of the Muslim world live in the Middle east.
The rest are all from other parts of the world!
You claim to know Muslims so well. Have you lived in
Indonesia, China, Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Spain,
England? Have you?

>>Let me also add that you can quote the
>>Quran all day and night......it still does not
>>change the way life is lived in Muslim countries.

BINGO!!!! YOU JUST CONTRADICTED YOURSELF.
I CAN AND WILL quote the Quran as much as I want
but you just said so yourslef.."it still does not change
the way life"...THAT IS PRECISELY MY POINT!

You are critising ISLAM. ISLAM IS PURE. what
you should be critisising is THE WAY OF LIFE of
people. your hostility is completely misdirected!
Just because people don't adhere to the rules of
Islam doesn't make Islam bad! It makes the
PEOPLE BAD. YOU SHOULD BE BLAMING THEM.
NOT ISLAM.

>>Visit one sometime!!! You are looking at the
>>Muslim religion through idealistic glasses.  Just
>>where are you from anyway??  It doesn't seem like
>>you have ever even VISITED the Middle East.  Until
>>you do, I think maybe you should indicate the type
>>of Muslim you are speaking about, because none of
>>the ones I know live as you say they do.
 

I have visited several....I went to Jeddah,
Macca, Madinah..I have LIVED IN IRAQ, LIBYA
AND BASRA.....we live in Singapore now which
has a Mosque every few miles...we live next to
Malaysia which is predominantly Muslim...
everyone here where's the scarf over their heads!
My parents come from Bangladesh and we go
back there every single year....practically everyone
there is Muslim.

You know what struck me the most? For a person
who claims to have travelled so much around the
world you are an awfully narrow minded person.
you say "none of the ones I know live as you say they
do"

just how many do you know??????
 
 
>>BTW, the
>>Muslim religion in the Middle East is one of the
>>oldest, and I promise you it makes no vows to
>>women.  It preaches subservience to men.  If that
>>is how you like your life, that's up to you.

Are you saying that because it is old, it PREACHES
BACKWARD AND PRIMITIVE LAWS? How queer
since YOU are the one who very proudly claimed in
your first e-mail "By my faith, which is older
than the Bible or the Quran"

YOU PROMISE ME THAT IT MAKES NO VOWS
TO WOMEN?

on what basis?
You can claim that some Muslims do not
respect their women BUT you have NO BASIS
NOR REASON TO CLAIM THAT ISLAM does
nto respect women. Islam is the first and only
religion which STATES IN ITS LAW that women
have immense rights. All of which i quoted BUT
YOU CONVENIENTLY OVERLOOKED.

YOU KNOW HOW I LEAD MY LIFE? like millions
of women around the world I live my life in an
independant way...my father does not force and
tell me what I should study in college, he does
not force me to get married to someone i do not
wish to  marry, he does not tell me how to dress
as long as it's modest....WHAT HE DOES TELL
ME IS THAT I CANNOT DRINK, SMOKE OR
HAVE PREMARITAL SEX! Is that wrong in your
eyes?
 

>>I am not a pregnant teen, there were no pregnant teens
>>anywhere in my family.  There also were no wife
>>beaters, slanderers, or any of the other unsavory
>>titles you hang on Americans.

YOU SEEM TO BE VERY VERY GOOD AT
CONTRADICTING YOURSELF.

you are telling me that the people who have
"unsavoury" characteristics are not the majority
in America right? YOU MEAN TO SAY THAT WIFE
BEATERS, CHILD ABUSERS AND MURDERERS do not
REPRESENT AMERICA RIGHT?

THEN WHY ARE YOU SO BLIND TO THE FACT
THAT THE MUSLIMS you CONDEMN ARE
ALSO NOT REPRESENTATIVES OF
ISLAM?

Just like the bad people are not majorities of America..AS YOU
CLAIM, why is it so hard for you to accept the fact that the Muslims
you complain about are not the majority!

>>Oh, and one more
>>thing, America doesn't seek out foreign people.
>>Foreign people seek out America.  I wonder why?
>>You may want to think about that one hon.   :)

This had got to be the funniest part of your e-mail Ofcourse
foreigners seek out America!!! Why not? Job opportunities!
Education! Land! Business! DO YOU EQUATE THESE
TO THE MORALS OF A COUNTRY?

you should read the book "Daughters of Another Path'
by Carol L. Anway....Carol is a Christian woman who
writes an entire book about the growing number of
AMERICAN WOMAN converting to Islam in America!!!
Read that and you will find reasons WHY these women
converted - ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS these
women converted to Islam is because of the freedom
that Islam gives to women....I WILL SCAN SOME
EXAMPLES FOR YOU AND SEND THEM TO YOU!

Now HON, i give you something to think about, if you
can that is....ISLAM IS THE RELIGION THAT IS
GROWING AT THE FASTEST RATE IN THE WORLD
TODAY.....NO RELIGION IS EXPANDING AS FAST
AS ISLAM........

I wonder why :)))))

p.s.
you are awfully hostile for a CL.
