Lawyerdad, youre right. We werent taught that the old testament doesnt count either. But if you put a priest or christian in a corner about something, he can always say jesus corrected it or showed the right way. Islam is specific in the sense that islam is said to be "din wa dawle", which means religion and state. Its not only spiritual belief but an organized system for society to govern itself and for personal life, with rules to follow. Its often said that the...
Islam is a bit worse than christianity because its specific and because in Christianity you can basically bury your head in the sand and pretend that the Old Testament doesnt exist. But theres plenty of wiggle room there to be muslim and a decent person as many are. If the billions that Saudi Arabia and Qatar have spent financing radical sheikhs and mosques around the arab world had been spent on the opposite, you would have a very different islamic world. SOciety here...
Seems like US intelligence helped lebanese army prevent a big operation that was planned in the North by the islamists here. Saudis arent even listening to the states now?...
Greek coast guard stopped a Turkish ship from Turkey loaded with weapons that was headed to Tripoli port in Lebanon, for radical sunnis. Saudis and their plans...
It wouldnt be the first time NATO allied with radical islamists... Saudi Arabia actively trying to destabilize lebanon's finance AND security situation. Reports are theyre trying to get the syrian refugee camps organized to create some sort of chaos and conflict here too. So far it seems the United States has insisted that Lebanon remain stable and has been putting brakes on Saudis efforts
BTW the official story is because of Lebanons abstinence from voting on an arab league resolution condemning Iran. It didnt vote against, it abstained from voting because the official government position is to be neutral in the sunni shiite conflict since half the country is on one side and the other half on the other. And, saudi backed groups here have sent fighters to Syria long before Hezballah entered there. And Hariris men set up shop in Turkey when the conflict...
Fuck every gulf state and its rulers. Im very happy things are escalating. I wish the stupid among the sunnis here would wisen up and we could have some sort of national stance for once but that will never happen. Fuckin saudi arabia, they financed both sides of the civil war in the 80s, then made billions in bonds in the 90s and under Hariri managed to steal billions in lands and assets here. They can shove their aid up their ass. Those billions for the army that are...
Ok. Except its borders are well defined and it keeps wanting to choose and govern outside of them too. Or does it have the right to do that too?That they were forced outIts ridiculous to ignore the fact that those palestinians live on that land and pretend that that does not make them "owners" of that land because all the UN members or whatever havent agreed on it.But anyway, since you want to take UN official decisions as the benchmark of who decides what, then there are...
Medwed, what do you mean rightfully so? First, the zionists before the creation of israel, used the british occupation to force people out, by direct british violence as well as zionist armed groups, in addition to outright land buying. Secondly they brought in a sudden influx of israelis and declared a jewish state for these people, which included within it arabs that had been there and didnt want to be part of it. Anyway, lets say this is all fait accompli. That state...
I remember in the pre-irak war days, hezballah speeches detailed what would happen under US foreign policy in the coming years and they pretty much described it to a word. From the disintegration of iraq and incitation for sunni shiite war to the targeting of syria and hezballah to weaken Iran in anticipation of ultimately takingg it out. Back then it was bush-bandar ben sultan days and they followed that script to the letter. To be fair these days it SEEMS that the US...
