You just need to realise some of your questions and claims are just outside the bounds of sensible discussion, and just become nothing but libel and slander. They do not deserve a response, and in most cases, one was already given long ago, Muslims grew tired of refuting the same old garbage long ago.


Sounds like you have been listening to your own rhetoric for far too long. You deliberatly avoid the difficult and novel questions and prefer the 'same old same old' arguments. You yourself post plenty of threads attacking the west that you admit are rubbish, and you happily respond to similar attacks against Islam. You actively participate in the silly repetitive arguments. You also respond to the difficult questions - its just that instead of answering them you go to elaborate lengths to justify non-answers.

Is this your new strategy - stick closely to the script and avoid the controversial topics?

Foolosophy,

Quote:
And yet the USA has been involved on over 45 overt and covert wars since the end of WW2 resulting in over 14.3 million civilian deaths in other people's backyards.


Surely this can't be right. Muslims are the terrorists, America told us so.

Well, the invasion of Iraq, of course. The US acted unilaterally as a defensive, pre-emptive measure against a rogue state. Saddam had WMDs and a nuclear weapons program it was planning to use on America. The US acted by declaring a War on Terror and initiating a defensive strike against the terrorist state of Iraq.

If this was not the case, the US would have broken international law and its leadership would be liable for war crimes.

As Rumsfeld, Bush and Cheney have not been indicted, I think we can safely say that the US's actions were entirely above board.

Also Abu why did you use the term propaganda? Are you suggesting that the promotion of Islam should not be entirely open and honest about Islam?



What is wrong with the truth abu are you afraid of the reaction?

If Islam is the truth as muslims claim then why do you have to resort to lies in order to promote it?

This is a pretty good description of Abu:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda

Quote:
As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda. Propaganda can be used as a form of political warfare.


Obviously he thinks the outcome of his propaganda is 'good', and this justifies all the little deceptions he engages in.

Can you give us your thoughts on what Abu Rashid said on the Aussie muslims forum in the op?

Does Hikmah = wisdom?
