    The Arab Spring Is Over

    I could have agreed with you but under the Assad regime, there have been no issues of women, ethnic minorities and religious minorities' rights. With the chaos that will follow the fall of the regime, these will become real issues and the LGBT community will be better off as far away from Syria...

    What about the Minority of Christians in Iraq?

    Pardon me ? where did you get the "Lebanese Christians exterminated" idea ? I belong to the Lebanese Christian community and I'm doing very well, thank you :roll:

    Modern Turkey

    The above is by far the most sensible and reasonable post that I've read coming from a Turk on this forum. You join my Turkish friends who give me hope that one day we will be able to come to terms with our common history. On the other hand, the above makes me lose all hope again. I hope...

    Iranian drinkers sentenced to death

    I see where the confusion came from. By "it is called" I meant, "it is considered", "you call it cultural relativism"

    Iranian drinkers sentenced to death

    Not at all, we are talking about the exact same thing. By the way, female circumcision is not exclusively practiced among Muslim societies and has nothing to do with Islam. Traces of female circumcision were even found on Egyptian mummies. It was even practiced in England and the United states...

    Iranian drinkers sentenced to death

    First of all "Islam" does not treat women like cattle, some Muslim societies do. I wouldn't want to be a woman in some Orthodox Jewsih society or in a village in India either, where my chances of survival as a baby girl would have been slim anyway. Does that mean that Judaism or Hinduism treats...

    I think you have taken a decision not to understand my point. So be it. Alla ma3aak :2wave:

    Iranian drinkers sentenced to death

    That is absolutely not what I'm saying. You don't need to compare an exact wrong with an equal and opposite right. Try to see in general. What I'm trying to say is that if one keeps pointing out only the negative aspects of a given society with only the positive aspects of the other, then we...

    Always point out the negative aspects of other societies and point out the good in yours. Knowing well that your culture has negative points and theirs has positive points. You end up always looking good and they end up always looking bad. It is called cultural relativism and it's definitely...

    The Houla Hoaxsters

    Don't get too excited about it. I have been working in the field of photojournalism for the past 28 years, so take my word for it or don't. The picture by Mario De Lauro began circulating on twitter shortly after the massacres of Hula. The BBC picked it up as a photo taken by a citizen...

    Israel: Shock At 'Thank You Hitler' Graffiti

    And you continue to be rude. I did say in the post just above that I did understood after reading the second article. I did also say that the title of the thread confused me. And I still think that those graffitis are more than despicable and I can add that I can understand how shocked the...

    End of the year show at an Islamic Jihad kindergarten

    The way the Hebron massacre is understood by some posters here is that Jews and Palestinians were living together in peace, birds were singing on the trees, the sun was shining ... and all of a sudden the savage Palestinians, for no reason at all decided to massacre their Jewish neighbours...

    End of the year show at an Islamic Jihad kindergarten

    I had little doubt about that. As for the anti-semitic rhetoric, I guess we just have to ignore. It's a card played too often mainly as an attempt to intimidate.

    End of the year show at an Islamic Jihad kindergarten

    That is true , but nothing can excuse the massacres of Hebron. Riots, confrontations ? yes but not entering a town and massacring more than 60 civilians including children. I simply cannot bring myself to accept that. I think you agree, you are not trying to excuse these atrocities, you are...

    Israel: Shock At 'Thank You Hitler' Graffiti

    Ok, I get it. I just read the second link which explains better. The title of the thread confused me. It is indeed more than despicable !!!
