Jase, you crack me up.
You are the only person who constantly posts 7 words in the 'Only Six words in a sentence please' thread in Off Topics.
You really should stop taking off your shoes when you count.

I object to that, sometimes it's 5 and others 8, but it averages out to 6 .
p.s. I'm still trying to work out how shoe laces work.

I bet you know how bras work (barbie dolls excluded )

Only on undoing them, never needed to do them up - your area of expertise I hear

Not quite. My area of expertise is undoing them - hands free

Is that before or after taking your false teeth out? ;)

Before. If I keep them waiting that long they'll take their own bar off for me, and we can't have that now

What bar would that be?

Sorry, I meant to say "bra" but mispelt the word in my excitement.

over the Bra or Bar?

I have to say - you have created an interesting piece of artwork with all the quoting going on...

If you copy our artwork and paste it into a Word document, change the font to Wingdings, change the font size to 14, change the font colour to blue, the text changes to a pixilated picture of a mosque

Gave it a try... Got an error message saying it only works on Aussie PCs... That's what I get for owning a Mac and living in the US.

Just gave Jame's idea a go and all I got was Harry Kewell raising the World Cup in triumph while every Argentinian in the stadium was bawling like a baby.

Quoting HeedTaken

And lest someone remind us all of the IRA, let me just say that that example of Irish xtian fratricide only reinforces what I have said about religion and religionists. Also, I do not mean to imply that all terrorism is Islamic, as could easily be taken from my post. I only meant to say that what springs forth from the doctrine of Jihad lately is currently called terrorism by the west, and the religious combatants, terrorists.

Also, to the person early on in the thread (as I was reading it) who referred to the United States as a Xtian country, let me sat that it is no such thing. The fact that many Xtians happen to live here does not ammount to our political state being Xtian. This is an important distinction made very clear in our founding documents, and indeed is one of the existential pillars of the American system.

I don't see any similarity between IRA terrorism and Islamic terrorism, except the fact that GaGa Gaddafi gave them arms and allowed them to train in Libya, and GaGa sure as hell ain't a Salafist.
The IRA had a purely political aim, namely the reunification of Northern Ireland and Eire as one single and indivisible entity.
There certainly is a strong religious animosity between the Fenian and Proddie communities, but the IRA would still have the same political agenda if the Battle of the Boyne had been fought between the Irish catholics and zonked-out (but very well-armed!!!) Rastafarians.
I can't recall the IRA ever proclaiming the desire for a Roman Catholic state ruled by God, cardinals and bishops.
Perhaps the rumours are true, and a group of IRA members, training in the Libyan desert, found an amphora lodged in the walls of washed-out Wadi Jihadi. The amphora supposedly contained the epistle of 3rd century Irish Saint Seamus the Blootered, and the word of Glod was
'Slay the Thatcherites where thouest findeth them, and the caravanserai on Brighton beachfront maketh a wondrous killing zone'.
The IRA and the Basque independence group ETA thought they were hard-ass till the moslem holy warriors came along.
How do you compete with inhumans who decapitate people and get their jollies posting the videos on the net, displaying their love and committment to Islam, God's perfection?
Even the filthy Nazis realised the inherent guilt of their barbarism, and didn't show their people newsreels of Dachau and Bergen-Belsen.

Frpm the dearth of replies, I can either assume that the TP members who read my missive agree with my point (if they even understood it) or don't give a rats arse (moon parties on Ko Phangan are far more enjoyable and extremely unislamic).
Anyway, having consigned mention of the IRA terrorism V Islamic terrorism as a total irrelevance, my next post should remove the rest of the bollocks (crusades/Hiroshima/Vietnam/Imperialism/Colonialism,etc) from the thread so the central point of Islam's inherent and institutionalised violence to it's own followers, let alone the kafir unbelievers, can be discussed and resolved.

I have reread my posts in this thread, and, on reflection, accept that after cikusang's implied threat of violence for expressing my opinion about Islam in my first post, my subsequent posts were more confrontational and sarcastic than I had intended.
I was hoping to get the discussion past the usual, and so far ,unsupported assertions that poverty or the USA's foreign policy explain and potentially condone mass-murder by Islamic terrorists.
I can understand why some members may take exception to criticism of their faith and culture, but I do believe that the salient facts which I expressed about conservative Islam (backed up by speeches and articles of influential moslems such as President Musharref and editor Abdel Rahman al-Rashed, general manager of Al- Arabiya news channel) have merit, and they certainly haven't been refuted as yet.
No-one likes having their culture criticised, but the best way to answer criticism is by reasoned argument, not by intimidation and threats of violence.
If anyone takes exception to my opinion and/or the facts and analysis I use to support my opinion, please post a reasoned counter-argument, as open discussion is far more useful than blind dogmatism (of which I am surely guilty!!!).
I will take pains to ensure that my future posts on the subject remain objective and will curb my sarcastic fingers.
