As much as we all fight submission, we all submit to something often without realizing it. By submitting to Allaah(swt) we feel freed from the shackles of the physical world and gain freedom not loose it.

Woodrow LI...

Your a good person...no doubt...

But right now those living in Iraq, could use your lessons...

Cause like yesterday 69 or more destroyed by bombs...Sunni vs Sheite...it's fixin to get ugly over there...

They seemed to have set their Islamic beliefs aside (Islam means peace right?), for the sake of old tribal vendedas...

The headlines are going to get gruesome over the next few months, years over there...

I think a lot of people like to submit to another authority because it frees them of responsibility. Maybe that is the appeal of religions that give people a lot of rules.

I suspect we will soon see a very strong attempt at an annexation of Iraq by Iran. In Iraq the Shi'i are predominately of Iranian ancestry and the Sunni of Arab ancestry. The Shi'i in Iraq will most likely support an Iranian takeover, which will almost certainly result in a Genocide of the Arab Sunni.

I suspect Iran is preparing for a takeover of the Arab nations the Sabre rattling about Israel was a ploy to get Hezbollah entrenched in the Arab nations.
