Did you hear the phone conversations between the Mumbai terrorists and their handlers? Obviously, the terrorists were dumb country folk, really brainwashed by religious indoctrination, and obviously those handlers, safely miles away, were fully aware of the ignorance they were taking advantage of and can hardly be believing in any god themselves.

The people behind this 'sharia' are evil personified. I think some of their subjects are ignorant and vulnerable and easily lead. They are the fodder in this war.

It is ugly that they are now in the US and trying to recruit people. They are a foreign power, having declared war on us and get around our laws by masquerading as a religion, taking advantage of our religious freedoms.

It is a disgusting thing when elements of this religion seem to have so many fooled into thinking Satan is God. They may not call it by that name, but that is whom they serve.

There may be something in the Koran that says people are fooled into thinking evil is good, there are such verses in the bible and the Koran seems to mimic a lot that is in the bible.

This is what can happen when those in a religion are not encouraged to read and follow teachings on their own. Most people, left to their own devices, would do good. It is when the religion is left to a few 'wise' men to interpret for the people that we seem to get into trouble.

Remember, there was a time in which this country feared a Catholic president? Then we realized that most Catholics do not follow every pronouncement of the pope, but think for themselves regarding their religion. I wish Muslims would do the same and throw sharia out for the trash that it is. No wonder they hate to educate their people. The worst nightmare of their leaders is that their people start to interpret their religion for themselves and these impotent leaders would be rejected.[/quote]

??? Many Muslims are educated. Was just reading a NY Times article yesterday about a young Iranian woman coming to the US to pursue her engineering degree because our universities are considered superior, and the wider story was about other young Iranians who go to college here. The numbers had dropped to about 1700 a year since the revolution, but they are picking up now. A lot of people don't seem to get that the atrocities you hear about in Muslim countries are often cultural interpretations of Islam. Saying that Muslims in a hellhole like Afghanistan are the same as Muslims in Turkey is ignorant. Women in Afghanistan have to hide in the house and wear burqas. Don't you know any educated Muslim people, especially women, in the business world? Doctors? Lawyers?

Your last sentence is correct--that's exactly what is worrying the extremist leaders and their followers. The better-educated Muslims are pushing back against them and their medieval ways.
Don't you realize that this thread is about SHARIA, and not Muslims, in general? I know there are forces in Iran which are progressive and, just as in Christianity, not all Muslims are crazed fundamentalists. It is the fundamentalists of many religions who cause most of the trouble and are anti progress and attempt to set civilization back.

I don't think any woman should take part in a religion that denigrates her in any way.
That said, there are sects of religions that just ignore those nasty passages in their holy books and manage a life in that hypocrisy, still considering themselves a part of that religion.

Yes, I just for the life of me can not understand the hypocrisy or justification of such acts even if your 'god' allows it - there is something seriously wrong with any laws that sanction this sort of BS as well as those who act upon it. Very sad indeed!

You seem to forget, Sharia is 100% muslim.

You cannot have sharia without muslims.
