I have a very long question for Muslims...?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_of_hadith If a hadith clearly says the Earth is flat while the Qur'an clearly says the Earth is round, that hadith obviously contradicts it and is unauthentic, but whether this hadith contradicts the Qur'an isn't so clear. Surely it contradicts Verse 60.8, which says Muslims must be equitable to inoffensive non-Muslims, but does it contradict a later Surah, Surah 9 (At-Tawbah), which seems to harmonize with it perfectly? I found a good study of Surah 9 from Islam Online at http://www.islamonline.net/surah/english/viewSurah.asp?hSurahID=52 I quote from the study: “If we keep in view the preceding background, we can easily find out the problems that were confronting the Community at that time. They were: 1. to make the whole of Arabia a perfect Dar-ul-Islam, 2. to extend the influence of Islam to the adjoining countries, 3. to crush the mischiefs of the hypocrites, and 4. to prepare the Muslims for Jihad against the non- Muslim world.”
Waves of muslim invasions were accompanied by massive massacres of Hindus. Each and every general, king, emperor left written records of how many Hindus he killed, enslaved or converted. They made hills of skulls and mounds of janoi (sacred thread) they took from those they killed. Hindu women started to commit sati as a way to escape dishonourable life as sex slaves of marauding muslim invaders.Massacre of Hindus by muslims runs into millions. Francois Gautier in his book ‘Rewriting Indian History’ (1996) wrote:“The massacres perpetuated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger than the Holocaust of the Jews by the Nazis; or the massacre of the Armenians by the Turks; more extensive even than the slaughter of the South American native populations by the invading Spanish and Portuguese.”Here are a few websites you can visit to find out more information.List of massacres in India - WikipediaPersecution of Hindus - WikipediaThe Biggest Holocaust in World HistoryWas There an Islamic "Genocide" of Hindus?Articles: The Greatest Murder Machine in HistoryIslamic Invasion Of India: The Greatest Genocide In HistoryThe biggest holocaust in World History...whitewashed from historyto HARRAK - Muslim invaders killed Hindus in millions :: Reader comments at Daniel PipesReading records of the muslim generals and kings makes us weep.
Information on the black death??
I can give you the info I know, but also check history books(its funny but this is where the info comes from the most cuz we learn about it in school and it was a mojor trauma in history)and the History Channel (the library may have copies of the documentaries on it-also check the religious documentary about the end of the world or revelations). o.k. here goes... !.) It was transmitted by the fleas on Rats 2.)It caused black pustules all over the body 3.)It was spread by touch alone 4.)People used to carry posies in the pockets expecting it to prevent the plague-it's where the nursery rhyme comes from "Ring around the rosies, a pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down." 5.) It was considered to be the start of the end of the world by some people who believed in revelations of the BIBLE. 6.)They had to burn bodies and make massive graves...hence the ashes in the rhyme 7.) It was the biggest thing since small pox. 8.) People died within a matter of a few days 9.)They carried bodies around in carts cuz there were so many 10.)Since people lived in close quarters and didn't know how to stop it, it spread fast! And this is only some of the greusome facts! Good luck..you picked a gross one. :)
America is a fierce and terrible enemy. Islamic conventional armies would be quickly defeated in the field. America would play on the tribal and factional differences in such a conflict. As in the 1979 Afghanistan War, the ummah would try to unite, and many jihadis would be slaughtered. What this questioner forgets is China has a centuries old conflict with Islam. China would side with the USA in mi!Itary actions, but in their own country and perhaps its neighbors. The formal military phase would end relatively quickly, as Islamic forces would be transnational without a capital or country to strike. It would then become an asymmetrical war. Islamic forces will become the classic leader less resistance. They would commit acts of terrorism against non Islamic targets. This will anger the USA and it's Allies to a point where it will launch an asymmetrical war of its own. This will be global jihad. Non Muslims will probably want vengeance for years of attacks and indignities (look to Europe today,namely Germany) . The USA will win the propaganda war first, then the divisions will begin. Decades of multicultural diversity will be undone. Both sides will go to their simplistic beliefs and the polarization will be unbearably intolerant. Soon the Islamic forces will burn out. Generations of war wear down desires and blunt hatreds. The War you ask about would last a short time as a conventional war, the asymmetrical war that follows will last 80 to 100 years. It will claim hundreds of millions of lives, not counting the the famines and epidemic diseases because of the breakdown of infrastructure.
That is not true. Lebanon has a considerable Christian population, around 50% for a long time, but the Muslim part is bigger by now. The country's constitution is based on the 50/50 sharing of power between Christians and Muslims. The president is always Christian (Maronite to be exact), the Prime Minister is always Sunni, and the Parliament Speaker, is always Shiite, while both the deputy Parliament Speaker and the deputy Prime Minister, are always Christian Orthodox. Also, Lebanese identification documents include the person's religious affiliation. That seems strange for us who live in secularized nations.Why Lebanon has a larger Christian population than other states in the ME has to do with its history, colonization and the division of the region by Great Britain and France during the 19th and early 20th century. I do not recall the specifics and the movement of people. But bear in mind that France's influence and ties to Lebanon are still strong. France has continuously offered support and been an ally to Lebanon, long after it gained independence.
Why did the jews choose the middle east to make israel?
Yes, they went BACK to ancient Israel. It wasn't a actual choice. The Jewish prayer has been for 20 centuries "Next Year in Jerusalem," NOT "Next Year in Slovenia" or "Next Year in El Paso!" Actually the Palestinians are the descendents of the original Hebrew Israelis as well. About a third of all Jews were scattered out of Israel 2000 years ago. The rest stayed. Some became Christian, some converted to Islam and some remained Jewish. When the Jewish Zionists reclaimed Israel for the Jews in the 1940s, they accepted the Jewish Palestinians as "Israelis," but rejected the Christian and Muslim Palestinians, and forcibly removed them from the lands they wished to occupy. Welcome to our nightmare.............
