For those of you who work in corporate environment, do the muslims around the office start showing more "muslim patriotism" the higher political tensions get?

Today, a labanese guy was wearing an olive drab, fatigue-looking blouse with a black T-shirt underneath. Back during the cartoon thing, this Nigerian, who is normally a mild mannered American seeming guy, started wearing a hat with Arabic writing that had Jarusalem in English on it. I hadn't even known he was a muslim up until then.

Does this happen other places or am I just being paranoid?

To muslims, there are no countries, only islam.

You are not being paranoid.

Yes, I'm sure Muslims here in the us like to show solidarity with their brothers around the world.

Right - "many" in my use of the word refers to the fact that about 100 million Indians are muslims. Certainly not a huge proportion of the population, but a very large number of people.

Please get a clue.

Are you a muslim? You didn't say. You just said you were Lebonese. The two may not have anything to do with each other.

"Practicing" muslims that actually believe in their faith, don't recognized government authority over "islam" or "Sharia" law. And if a government isn't under Sharia law, then they don't recognize that governmental body. They "say" they follow the laws in a country, however, I doubt that's the case deep down, especially when it comes to the US. I am sure that out of 300,000 muslims in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights, you won't find too many that would be willing to give up information on actual terrorists that are operating here. As in the case throughout the muslim faith, brothers in faith and blood come WAY before what is right.


And 9/11 and the way the average muslim gets upset over a stupid cartoon does tend to make you sit up and take a look around. If it weren't for all the crap the muslims in the world are doing, I wouldn't have a clue about islam. Never needed to in the past, but now that it may invade my life, you bet I am getting a really good education in it.

Peaceful muslims... 136 times in koran, it says it's ok to MURDER "non-believers". Peaceful? Yeah, right.

actually, most of the sheikhs I know feel that Shari`a law for the most part disappears when you are living in a foreign land.

The only people that feel that you shouldn't follow the laws of the infidel in their land are the followers of Ibn Wahhab.



And 9/11 and the way the average muslim gets upset over a stupid cartoon does tend to make you sit up and take a look around.

Apparently not getting that good of an education. Regarding the cartoon issue, even the Wahhabists I know didn't really care, they are content in knowing that those who published those cartoons are going to hell.



Peaceful muslims... 136 times in koran, it says it's ok to MURDER "non-believers". Peaceful? Yeah, right.

My guess is that you've never even MET a "Wahhabist" in person - and if you do know any, I'd be willing to bet good money that you are lying about their reaction (consistent with your track record of lying about all sorts of stuff when it suits you)

Extremist muslims - ESPECIALLY Wahhabists - have demonstrated over and over again that they are the exact opposite of the "live and let live" and "they will get their just rewards in the afterlife" attitude.

Ask your imaginary Wahhabist friends why their ilk found it necessary to fly jet planes into the World Trade center and kill thousands of innocent people - why not just wait for those evil americans to go to hell, hmmm?

Yeah, the guy I know going to college here whose brother died over in Iraq while fighting American forces; the guy that is moving back to Saudi Arabia after he gets his degree because he "hates Americans"; The guy who practically worships Ibn Taymiyya and considers the madhabs as "bid'a"; the very guy that supports the killing of US Soldiers in Iraq... is not a Salafi.

... and neither are his friends who feel the same way

I will give you a hint, the people burning shit overseas were just looking for an excuse to do it, and they really have no religious backing to support their actions(by backing, I mean support from the Sunnah and the Qur'an, not their Sheikhs).




Extremist muslims - ESPECIALLY Wahhabists - have demonstrated over and over again that they are the exact opposite of the "live and let live" and "they will get their just rewards in the afterlife" attitude.



You're telling me; you "mess up" in your prayer(by "mess up", I mean not doing it exactly how they do it), they will chide your ass, and prevent you from giving the Khutbah on Friday, like they did to one of my friends.

Are you sure the Lebanese guy is Muslim? I know several Lebanese here at my university, all Christian.

Perhaps those you mentioned are just trying to raise awareness that those from the Middle East or Muslim countries are not all lunatics. Or maybe the Lebanese guy is a member of the Lebanese version of Arfcom. Maybe the Nigerian guy went on vacation to Jerusalem and "all (he) got was this stupid hat."

Ahh, I love you guys...its always "its out of context", "you have to read it in Arabic", "Its all who does the translation", "Thats all in the past", blah, blah, blah....

Things are clear to me, I don't care what the context...

Qur’an 47:4 “So, when you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle (fighting Jihad in Allah’s Cause), smite their necks until you overpower them, killing and wounding many of them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind them firmly, making (them) captives. Thereafter either generosity or ransom (them based upon what benefits Islam) until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded by Allah to continue carrying out Jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam.”

Muslim:C40B20N4676 “Jihad Is Compulsory.”

Bukhari:V4B52N80 “Muhammad said, ‘Allah welcomes two men with a smile; one of whom kills the other and both of them enter Paradise. One fights in Allah’s Cause and gets killed. Later on Allah forgives the killer who also get martyred in Allah’s Cause.’”

Bukhari:V4B52N182-4 “Allah’s Apostle invoked evil upon the infidels, saying, ‘O Allah! The revealer of the Holy Book, defeat these people and shake them. Fill the infidels’ houses and graves with fire.’”

Bukhari:V4B53N386 “Umar sent Muslims to great countries to fight pagans. He said, ‘I intend to invade Persia and Rome.’ So, he ordered us to go to [the Persian King] Khosrau. When we reached the enemy, Khosrau’s representative came out with 40,000 warriors, saying, ‘Talk to me! Who are you?’ Mughira replied, ‘We are Arabs; we led a hard, miserable, disastrous life. We used to worship trees and stones. While we were in this state, our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or pay us the Jizyah tribute tax in submission. Our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says: ‘Whoever amongst us is killed as a martyr shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever survives shall become your master.’”

Tabari IX:69 “Killing disbelievers is a small matter to us.”

Tabari VIII:141 “The battle cry of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah that night was: ‘Kill! Kill! Kill!’”

Bukhari:V5B59N512 “The Prophet had their men killed, their woman and children taken captive.”
Ishaq:489 “Do the bastards think that we are not their equal in fighting? We are men who think that there is no shame in killing.”

Qur’an 2:191 “And kill them wherever you find and catch them. Drive them out from where they have turned you out; for Al-Fitnah (polytheism, disbelief, oppression) is worse than slaughter.”

Qur’an 9:5 “When the sacred forbidden months for fighting are past, fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

Qur’an 5:37 “The [Christian] disbelievers will long to get out of the Fire, but never will they get out there from; and theirs will be an enduring torture.”

Qur’an 9:71 “O Prophet, strive hard [fighting] against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be harsh with them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed.”

Qur’an 8:59 “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”

Qur’an 4:168 “Those who reject [Islamic] Faith, Allah will not forgive them nor guide them to any path except the way to Hell, to dwell therein forever. And this to Allah is easy.”

Oh, I can go on and on...the Religion of Peace indeed!

This infidels eyes are open....and you cannot lull me into a false sense of security...

Yeah ok lets clear this up right here, right now. Mr. Premed gunner (if that is your real name )
Do you consider yourself a salafist? And how do you feel about Isrealis? Do they have a right to exsist? If you (in theory), had the power to erase Isreal from the map, would you do it? And what about the Crusades? Justified? or "imperialism"? I think you should state once and for all what you belive so people wont think of you as a troll or something.

I work for a university, and I see "Stop the occupation of Palestine" protests all the time. At one of the protests, students were standing at the bell tower with the green Hamas headbands and were carrying pieces of plywood cut out into the shape of AK47's (and painted black, too).

The funny thing is, most of them were NOT muslims at all. Most of them are white kids (I'm only assuming they're not muslims because they're white - so sue me) who simply hate Israel and America. Don't get me wrong, there are some legitimate gripes with Israel, but these kids don't care about them. They're just doing it because they are stupid white kids with Che t-shirts.

As far as I can tell, most of the muslims who work on campus are either professors or research scientists. I have yet to see a single one of them wear a Hamas headband or do anything but mind their own business and do their job. One of the guys I work with is from Iran, and even though he sides with the Palestinians more than the Israelis, he seems to be a pretty solid dude and says nothing but good things about America. We argue all the time about Israel, but he has made it quite clear that he hates terrorists, and I believe him. I never knew this, but Iranians think of arabs as filthy animals! (according to him).

I can't tell you what kind of rhetoric the professors are spewing out in class because I don't enter the classrooms when class is in session, but I do overhear a lot of conversations between professors in the hallway, breakroom, etc. The ones who seem to be the most anti-American are of the "do-gooders out to save the world" and are almost always white.

YMMV, but this is what I've seen with my own two eyes.

There's a Muslim guy where I work. He's really quiet but then again, he works far away from me and reports to his boss 1000+ miles away at headquarters... so he doesn't really interact much with everyone else because there's no need to. I went to lunch with him a couple days ago.
