    I dont know about you, but majority of people who live in the west commit adultery. Western countries are in a big mess.
    In America & Europe women can walk half naked, this wouldnt happen in an Islamic country. Your people commit adultery all the time. You have thousands of prostitutes. Sharia law is the only solution to this cancer.

    I empathize with your concerns about alcohol, but people celebrate New Year's Eve (December 31 - January 1) in many different ways and some without alcohol like me. It is not my New Year, but I can find appropriate fellowship. My New Year as a Baha'i is March 21. I also celebrate with friends the Winter solstice on December 21.

    But... but... but... we have been told that Sharia law affects ONLY Muslims, so how would it be the solution to the "cancer" in the civilized world? Billions of us will NEVER submit to Islam. So.... how is that going to work?

    The West is fine. It's the fundamentalist Islamist views you are espousing that is the cancer that needs to be extirpated.

    What you say of the west hasn't been my experience at all. It doesn't represent what me, my family, or my friends do. Every corner of the west is filled with vastly different cultures that are starkly different from each other. Instead of casting judgement, maybe you should truly seek to understand first. You come across to me as someone consumed in hatred and anger, and that can't be healthy...

    Do you live in the West?

    Contrast this to the region that has constantly been at war for as long as anyone alive can remember.

    I have to wonder just what you're considering "adultery".

    So does the Middle East.

    Sharia law is a mockery of law, humanitarian efforts, and justice as a whole.

    I just wondered why you were so 'big' aboput hadiths, that's all.

    .....correction: You don't know about 'us'.

    We do? You know this, how?
    How about you all?

    The World is in a big mess, always has been.
    But I don't think the history of Islamic countries shows a more balanced or peaceful existence, quite frankly.

    Women? Half naked? Look, it's true that a woman could go shopping in any of our cities wearing just a bikini with credit card pushed under bra or pants, that's true. But we're not going to let any group of fanatics interfer with out freedom about that.
    And everybody here is governed by our equality laws so all religions must obey our laws.
    Folks cannot beat up their daughters or kill them here without answering to the criminal law.

    You've already said that...... repeating yourself.

    I do wonder why you're so interested in this perception. Can you spot them easily?
    Have you ever looked for them for any reason?

    What........ loads of self-righteous bullies beating up girls who were on a night out?
    We'd put you in prioson, here, friend. We don't put up with amateur vigilantes here.

    The Scots get (generally) so boozed up that Scotland gets 2nd January as a national holiday so that they can recover, not that I think it's a great idea that the OP will know that, now. :p

    Yep..... great.

    Psssst....... that'll really start him off!

    Excellent and very old tradition. Great.

    Muslims are free to believe what they want to believe. But selective quoting is a characteristic of certain kinds of arguments that I dismiss as invalid.

    The internal violence of Muslim society towards minoritys is a greater cancer than women walking about in short clothes.

    If someone is takfir-ing other Muslims, you can pretty much guarantee they are Sunni (obviously it is not something that the majority engage in though).

    As a Sunni Muslim I can tell you, the vast majority of Sunnis view Shia Muslims as fellow brothers and sisters including those who live in Iran.

    May Allah swt bless the Ummah of Muhammad pbuh.

    I should think once Jesus pbuh returns, the majority of people will happily revert to the straight path. Those too stubborn or proud can expect to fall on the sword of Jesus pbuh.

    Luke 19:27 "But bring here these enemies of mine, who did not want me to rule over them, and slaughter them in my presence.'"

    Always the happy thoughts, eh. Conform, submit or die. Nope. No compulsion there. :)
    What's to dislike about the death cult that is Islam?

    Thankyou for the info..... :)
    I guessed 'shi'ite' because of the mention of hadiths, which I always had imagined that Sunni Muslims ignored.

    Got some strage ideas about us, some folks have..... :p

    This is wonderful news, and it's just great to know that Sunni and Shia hands are held in unity throughout the World. Excellent.

    On the side..... Who do you think is murdering Shia Muslims at their meetings places in Kabul just lately? Any ideas?

    ...and you believe that? Really?

    Do you believe anything written by a Levite Doctor, who never saw or heard Jesus ever, never took part in Jesus's campaign, and who wrote that Nativity account?

    Well...... if you believe it.... :shrug:

    You've hardened up over the years! :p
    I remember your posts to me about the little boy from Cardiff beaten to death because he couldn't remember his Qu'run lines, and the tough treatment in some madrassas here. (All being put right now, I read).

    That is neither true nor logical even if it happened to be true.
