What fundamentalists have invaded the forum with fear and retribution? I'm not going to waste my time proving anything to you, because it is clear that you are unwilling to see your own errors. As for anybody else, they can simply read through all of your posts made on this thread and others concerning Islam, if they need to verify my claims about your posts. Your posts all speak for themselves.
I understand your intention are good but you are just as much to blame for the decline of this thread. It is the job of the staff to review content reported or otherwise and it is our job to keep things on track. If you have issues then report them and let US, the staff, deal with it. You have no room to talk about his ignorance of certain issues while you ignore his request for evidence. Please back off a bit or, at least provide what xris is requesting. You are letting your emotions take over reason and that is not the point of this section OR this forum.
I agree with Salima. Religion is never the cause of war. It has always been greed and lust for power that causes war. Religion is only the perfect excuse. How can religion devide people when all religions preach the same values, fraternity, justice,etc. Religion is the means, not the cause nor the goal. The Taliban, like all sodiers all over the world and all through history are recruted among the poorest, uneducated classes where there is not much hope for a better future. It is obvious that our soldiers that volunteer for Afghanistan are not motivated by patriotism nor religion; they join the army to have a better future for themselves and their families. It is astonishing how many times I heard a soldier associate going to fight in Afghanistan with bying a house. Many of those that join the army are psychologically vulnurable youngsters who often got into trouble with the law, socially unstable misfits with hardly any education who are brainwashed into thinking that the army will make "real men" out of them. As for the hate propaganda in the Koran, it would be quite easy to do the same with the Bible which is full of violent episodes, treachery and what not. Anyways with all the sexual child aguse scandals that are coming out nowadays about the Catholic clergy, I think we need to keep a low profile when it comes to judging other religions and since we are stuck with that Afghan war, we need not be great philosophers to see that islamophobia is convenient, necessary and just part of the game.
