what's with you and muslims?
Eliezer wants to be Muslim.
That would be pretty funny-after all, there are lubavs who are descendants of Muhammad in Pittsburgh, now we could have muslims who are descendants of the Alter Rebbe!
1. I like Islam. I can't really explain here and now what's up with it, but I think Islam is a pretty good religion.2. I'm not a descendant of the Alter Rebbe. He's my great uncle.
Maybe because halal is less of a pain than kosher? You're still his great nephew.
1. yeah, but praying five times a day is harder. But that's not it. Whatever. Maybe one of these days I'll post about it.2. true that.
But they're praying is much shorter than even a non-tachanun shacharis...Maybe you're cousins with my friend who is also his great great nephew.
true. In general, in the weird-ritual department they have it much easier than us.What's your friend's last name? (if you want, just email me the name.)
That guy was conned by the ganiv - but it's still a nice thing to do . . .E. Must like Islam b/c he enjoys totalitarian ideals - same reason why he likes the CCCP's glorious marches and anthems.Halal is nasty if you see their shechita . . .
gut gezokt re totataltarianism
have you ever seen non jewish butchering of any kind? not nice at all. and islamic establishments are the only ones that are semi ok to go into because they have no images.
How they kill their animals is only a small part of a religion's overall appeal. One of these days I'm going to write a post about why I like Islam.
e-Shabtai Tzvi would be proud.
"Some Muslims are cool"- What're you talking about?! ..ALL Muslims are cool! mashalla!
I dunno, bearded men freak me out.Oh wait...
ha!he'd have to grow out his beard again....
in all seriousness - lets have that post. it sounds mighty intriguing.
what kind of islam do you like the best? shia? sunni? seveners? twelvers? sufi? ayymadiaa? wahabi? salafis? eh? pony up already!
bearded men freak me out too.oh wait...
shia' are fake muslim, الله يسامحهم!
ooo bold statement, defend your position sir!
Favorite answer from WikiAnswers:"Shiah are kufr because they do voodoo in the Imam Ali Mosque and other crazy thing during the month of Muharram, these shia monkeys also murder the Ahlus Sunnah, ethnically cleansing the Sunni Muslims in Iraq and also Iran!" (!)Also: http://www.kr-hcy.com/askimam/01.shtml(I actually looked up "why shia are kafir" on google!)
lame example. sunnis killed a the last successor and living realitive of their own prophet! not to mention the geneocides they commited themselves (Iraq sunnis have killed way more shia than vice versa) murders in saudi arabia, lebanon, egypt, etc. they do have unique practices specific to (and definatly influenced by) the region they are in. also sunnis love to kill kurds so that makes them lame automatically (despite kurds being sunni) also from sunni islam comes Wahabism (Salafis) or better known as "terrorist Islam".
"Merciful storekeeper changes robber's mind, religion" quite easy when you have the advantage of a gun! lol. btw i think theres a story about a lubavitcher who talked a thief out of it - for real!
I'm not impressed that the robber "converted." I'm impressed that while holding the gun, what came to the storekeeper's mind? "Let me save this guy's soul and give him $40."
((Yiddish syntax alert))
hmm i agree to that. muslims do actually believe what they do, thats what makes them so dangerous.
well this one wasn't interested in killing infidels. He was interested in helping them physically and spiritually. Right now, I'm working on a post about why I like Islam. So check back later.
Forth shall ye all hold.
