Second, 3 Groups wear black in the middle east:Women. Judges/Politicians/Clerics. Grooms.Obviously second class citizens.
I also like that so many Americans seem to think Arab clothing is sexist, when it`s one of only 3 cultures I know of where both men and women wear dresses.
4th My Islamic teacher wore white, my favorite Kandoora is black. It`s only bad if you`re not used to it. Right now people here in Dubai are wearing coats because it`s gone below 30C.
5th I know the IRA and KKK are different groups, but belong in the same category of non Islamic terrorist groups.
who wants to get in an arguement with her?
You speak the truth, comrade.Hammer and sickle.
Well she was kinda right until she started saying no jews has ever blown up anyone.
Before Israel was made a country jewish terrorists killed lot of innocent people But now they`re refered to as freedom fighters oddly.
Emanuel Rahm, Barack`s main man in DC, has a father who is a well known terrorist jew. So anyone telling me the jews are free of guilt better get their facts straight.
Read my post further down about women. The women are being treated as second class citizens not because of religion, but because of their culture. I live in Malaysia, where our central bank governor is a woman, among other things.
You fail at differenciating between religion and culture.
@GroggleLay off the drugs a world based economy needs a standard of trade called currency resourced based trade is a step back.
Yet for some reason, I`ve very little faith that you`ll consider my opinion as enlightening and awe inspiring as Mrs. Wafa.
However, I have no confidence whatsoever in your ability to appreciate an insider`s viewpoint when it doesn`t agree with yours.
For those interested at least: The entire script of the show.and an opinion peace on her: from NCPAYou might want to read up on the source of this particular translation (read controversy section).
How about this, as a Brit, I suggest that racism against arabs, violence against arabs, and hatred towards arabs is far more severe and worthy of attention than any hatred/violence/racism of arabs towards the western world.
Way to ignore the points raised and bowl out a catchphrase.
As I said, Israel was the single first terrorist attack in that region. They kill the most civilians. They pushed out 3.5 million Palestinians from their homes and refuse to allow them the right of return, meanwhile only 20% of Israelis are born there and they`re encouraging immigration.
If I break into your house and kick you out at gunpoint, it`s not fair to claim self defense to say "Well if I let em stay they might hurt me!"
That`s retarded. Apply Palestinian history to America, if America was treated the way the Palestinians were and are, the reaction would be far more violent than what we see in Palestine.
There are alternatives. A ressource based economy.
Fight the real ennemy. Protect yourself from what you want.
Not every muslims are terrorists, not all muslims think the way that woman wants to make you believe. It is a dictatorial system but one that was created by the people who invaded them ( The british ).
The Sword of Islam: War Against Israel and the West!
Why do you think they`re targetting the West? Because they hate them? Think for a moment how utterly retarded this line of thought really is. It is because the West helped invade them a long time ago and thise invasion was done in secret, why do you think the CIA helped Bin Laden in the first place?
As much as I detest internet debates, I just want to say that you are retarded... Israel is simply defending itself which it has every right to do. Also, whether they have rights to the land or not is besides the point. The extremist muslims in Hamas are killing civilians in Israel indiscriminately, something which shouldn`t be tolerated by anyone no matter what nationality you are.
doesnt the bible say `God loves all` yet there it says `god does nto love aggressors`? thats why its much, much easier to realize the bible contradicts itself in every page and just ignore all religion.
I personally think the Israelis are oppressive and are trying to realize their vision of a pure Jewish Israel by forcing out the Palestine. They strongly resemble Nazi Germany during WW2, but with the military support of a massive superpower (USA) and compassion from the capitalist western world.
Both sides need to quit the racism and accept that they`re all a part of the human species.
That`s assuming it`s a quote, and not just made up.
If it`s a paraphrase it could be one of several, but all end up like the one you just mentioned Pabasa.
Probably the verse she was referring to. Isn`t it nice how people just copy paste specific parts of whatever article that supports them, and ignores the rest, that doesn`t?
How much of that is because she agrees with you? How much of that is because she has facts on her side?
For example, give me something she said that was a piece of information and not an opinion.
I`ll help you out: One (mis)quote. (Prophet says to kill people)Two truths. (Jews successful 19th-20th century)(3 Bhudda statues torn down)
Lies:Jews don`t kill: First car bomb in Israel was the Israeli terrorist group Lehi killing British and Palestinians to end peace talks. Also, the assassination of Yitzak Rabin was Jewish.Israel has killed 1050 Palestinian Children, Terrorists have killed 123 Jewish children since 2000.
There is some utter bullpoo in her "truth" some of you seem so impressed by.
Can I just posit a simple request that everyone who has ever told me that Al-Jazeera is just a brainwashing channel for terrorist to suck on my left nut? Thanks.
On to more serious matters, this is the reason you don`t get more people like her on TV, because they`ll translate her and not the response. They`ll translate 20 minutes of Muslim clips criticizing the west and put them on youtube, ignoring the (roughly) 31.5 million minutes of religious television the middle east has had in the last 15 years. It`s just sad that so many people have yet to even entertain a viewpoint of the middle east that isn`t their own.
On a more serious note, I agree with Pabasa to an extent, but it`s not even "Arabs". Dubai, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, are not Saudi Arabia. Afghanistan is not Arab. The KKK/IRA are not Muslim.
sorry, I got excited and temporarily lost my composure. I agree with what she is saying and for some reason, the dude with the funny hat sounded like an ignorant southern baptist preaching to someone who is of a different faith.
This woman has balls, and brains, and is in a position to actually be allowed to pass judgement on their cdulture and religion without seeming racist (apparently it`s racist for me to say things like that in public, mall cops are stupid)
I had a drunken discussion with a Pakistani cab driver about these issues once, and he agreed with a lot of the points I was raising, and asked why I knew so much of their faith.
To me, as an Atheist, I have to have a valid argument as to why no religion is suitable for me, and there is no better way to prove this than using knowledge. And honestly, Muslim was the stupidest religion outside of Mormonism and Scientology.
No, she`s not assassinated yet.
The sad thing about this is that she will probably be kidnapped by Muslim extremists, and then executed on video to make an example...
I want to meet her and shake her hand vigorously.
Hmmmm thats profound and yet simple. Like Macaroni. And i love macaroni.
Agreed.. I laugh at anyone who bashes Islam by saying women can`t get anywhere. If they bothered to read history they`d see that the prophet Muhammad married a very successful business woman.
...on oppression my view is that there is physically and psychological oppression..There women are forced to wear a scarf to cover their hair..Here women aren`t forced to, but expected to wear make up, pluck their eyebrows, and be skinny..If you don`t you`re not respected.
I have to admit, yes, in Islam there are certain points (such as matters of witnesses, and inheritance) where there are blatant inequality between genders.
Nevertheless, apart from these matters, there are no other actions that prevent women from having equal opportunities from men. Women over here are free to work and even free to lead. The thing I am proud most is that the women over here can do so many things, be a boss, be a top scientist, etc. and still be a good Muslim (modest appearance, supporting the family), unlike in the Middle East, where the women are simply expected to stay at home and be a good housewife.
It is unfortunate that she grew up in this kind of society, and sad that she blamed Islam instead of the culture.
In short, where it matters, in Islam there are no differences between men and women.
Heck, men have dicks and women have vajayjays. That`s gotta count for something
How can she say that Islam forces us to convert everyone non-Muslim (or kill), when one of the most basic surah (verse) of the Quran, Al-Kafirun clearly tells us to tell non-Muslims that "to you your religion and to me mine"? - edit: upon watching the video further she even stated this point.
The only thing I truly agree with her that religion is a purely personal matter. Your actions on earth, good or bad, is all between you and God. So long as you do not insult the beliefs of others.
A good Christian is one who examines the state of reality today, and finds ways to garner respect from those with other beliefs through non-violent means.
A good Jew is one who examines the state of reality today, and finds ways to garner respect from those with other beliefs through non-violent means.
A good Buddhist is one who examines the state of reality today, and finds ways to garner respect from those with other beliefs through non-violent means.
The arian nation is derived from Nazi German beliefs. Its all over the world not just in America. America is mix of every belief you can think of under a free democracy. Dont generalize the KKK beliefs to all Americans as an example. I do understand what you are saying but reread what you write before you post it.
This is a brave, brave woman who speaks the only truth there is. Although she is no doubt marked for death now, as a United States Marine I value this wisdom and would choose freely to defend her with my life. It is about time someone like this came forward to officially and openly challenge entire nations and an entire religion with wisdom and logic.
If her thinking were to be embraced, it has the potential to bring unseen peace on a wider scale than ever seen. I would love to see the day when I am out of a job because of this person and her thinking.
Now that entirely misses the point of the video. A good Muslim is one who examines the state of reality today, and finds ways to garner respect from those with other beliefs through non-violent means.
Although she did seem to categorize all Muslims into the category of terrorists, that may be what the newscasters were getting so upset about.
Her message about respecting everyone`s beliefs I totally agree with, though, and its a message for the entire world, not just Muslim extremists. People like those at Westboro Baptist Church and extreme anti-religious groups need to hear this as well.
Oh, and the "heritic" thing said by the man on the right...it just made me so mad. Having asn open mind doesn`t make you any less worth listening to.If only more people in their culture,(and ours), understood that...
That was beautiful.
did you see the guys face at the end? he was speechless. lol
Fundmentist Muslims make Fundmentalist Christians seem tolerant.
