Speaking out takes courage and until you lot clean up house from the inside, you will continue to be viewed as barbaric, uneducated, immoral, and archaic. You really cannot blame how the world stereotypes muslims.

Only when education and civilization is allowed to flourish in the backward muslim countries, will you be accepted as you want to be. The folk that carry out acts of violence against their own are never prosecuted, the punishment never fits the crime if they do, stuff like honor killings, throwing acid in girls faces etc.


Do not bring me one or two of people that gaves your media, then say the Muslim world be that, so these crimes are happen in your world more but, because your media is focus on Islam Only

and I think that you had Misconception about muslim countries who was said that they are backward!!!!



Do not tell us this is tradition or cultural, it is simply barbaric and has no place in the modern world.

The point being the Mideast nations that are not under constant bombing are developing. Some of the sad results of the "War on Terror" are that many of the countries have fallen into anarchy.

I doubt the anarchy and lack of development can be blamed on the war on terror or the West. But there would be no war on terror if the islamist weren't bent on committing terror acts both against the west and their own co-religionists.

They were third world countries without any rights for their citizens before the war on terror started.

You can blame the rulers of these countries (autocratic dictators) and their need to hold onto power for the conditions of these countries.

Lack of education, lack of human rights, etc were there already. What these autocratic rulers have done to hang on to their own power and to stop their citizens from seeing where the real blame lies is to blame the West for their problems.

All the Gulf countries where an excellent education, Development in the economy and construction


All Muslim countries, education is also excellent but the states that your country launched a war on become their education,economy very bad

As for the lack of human rights in some Muslim countries was the Dictators rulers have a big role to it, for that were revolutions in the Arab countries to change these rulers

Woodrow LI: I believe that Dubai is the richest country per capita in the world. If not from oil, where does it get all its income? What could it replace it with?

Jazzymom: Great post. Dictators and religion go together quite well, don't they?

And there has been a long battle to kick out the Autocratic Rulers. Sadly they are often backed by forces from other nations. some examples of recent years Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Saudi, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Algeria. It is true the USA did topple Saddam in Iraq and the Iraqi were very gratefull for that. The problem is the USA stayed in Iraq after Saddam fell.

At the moment I can not think of any Muslim country that has a leader who represents either the people or Islam. They are all despots that need to be removed. There will no peace in many of the Mideast countries until every leader is replaced with a sincere Muslim who does represent Islam and the population.

Yeah they did because the vacuum left after Sadaam was filled by the influx of Islamist influences and the militias (shia and sunni) and the onslaught of suicide bombings, genocide and ethnic cleansing that took place. I think the forces would have been glad to leave a stable country but it was anything but stable. Personally I wish my country had left and Iraqis could have dealt with it themselves.

There will be no peace until all countries have democratic forms of government that are secular and respect the human rights of all citizens, no matter gender, religion or political outlook. Leaders should represent the people not a religion.

Religion has no place in government period.

I know these things without your links, After America's entry to Iraq and her destruction began the war between Sunnis and Shiites and was Shi'ites betrayed to Sunnah but Before the war this was not found in

Blame your country

This is what war is doing in each place, does not make but division

The second time, give me the links for the millions killed by America also

It wasn't found because Saddam ruled his country with an iron fist and kept the shia majority under control. The shia once he was gone understood that they were no longer being ruled by the Sunni or the Bath party.
