CNN's Arwa Damon takes a tour of a turquoise jewelry community in Kabul, which is being restored with outside aid.
The Sharya problems lie on the juridical schools. Only 4 are orthodoxic: the Malakita, Hanbalita, Shafi'ita Hanofita. The Wohabita, rappresented by S.Arabia and supported by USA is recent and etherodoxic. It is a modern wrong interpretation of the Sharya born and developed in the last 2-3 centuries. It is the most violent form and lacks of true spirituality. Other customs like women mutilations are just tribal customs diffused in Africa.
The problem is People are getting angry because of Themselves instead of being angry because of the wrongs in the Country are the World!!! If Everyone would work to make things better for Evey One Else things would also get better for Them...
Larry – this is a good concept applied by US after WWII and it worked quite well. Now they are on the wrong way, as they have spread AlQaeda in every direction. When you have a cancer, if you miss the right terapy in the beginning the methastasis will spread all around. The same happened wiith AlQaeda.
@ Salerno- "Killing has nothing to do with religion and if it is not stricly for self-defense it must be punished,"
I applaud you on this one, actually a good posting, the problem lies in interpretations, organized religions, fanatics, Sharia Law and Tribal codes which makes it all more complex (but not any more right) and blurs the lines between right and wrong. Good Post.
It was your reflection
When one is angry ..it effect the whole universe. If one is missing ...then ...family ..has a problem. when one has a problem ...others cant be in peace.
@ Dindy- Positive Thoughts + Positive Actions = Positive Results.
The Prophet has Spoken.
To be a prophet you have to be followers. It is not so easy isn't it ? Only The TRUE Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) has 1.6 billions of followers.
@ Salerno- Those numbers grow smaller every day as Sunni and Shea kill each other all over the world- you don't see anything wrong with that?
It is irrelevant to say it is wrong or not. It is the way things go. Inside christianity very bloodly crusades happpened too (albigesi). People are responsible.
Dan – Islam has christianity inside it. Islam simply added Mohammed prophecy, like Jesus added to Moses prophecy. Killing has nothing to do with religion and if it is not stricly for self-defense it must be punished, as it was in Egypt and Iraq, wher the killers were captured and had death penalty.
Salerno.....you have no religion or God in you because you tell rude things to other people in your posts .That is not Jesus or God or Buddha or Allah"s way. It is the devil who tell bad words to people.
Dindy – It is my problem if I have or have not religion or God. I tell rude things becouse the argument requires to tell so..
Ah yes, for the Glory of Islam, tell more lies pathetic paki worm.
Sorry false prophet, I am not Paki and you are confused.
@ Salerno- "False Prophet"? WHAT!?!? I'm pretty sure I am the real Prophet and I do spew forth Wisdom from time to time.
If you were a prophet you would have known I am not Paki.
@ Salerno- Paki, Iranian, Bosnian, A worm is still a worm in any country.
I understand your frustration becouse you have not billions of followers like Mohammed, so you feel yourself like a worm and try to push away that feeling projecting that to me, but you failed again. You are a insignificant.
@ Salerno- HA, you got me all figured out I guess, not too bad for a Taxi Driver.
Taxi Driver ? You are ridiculouse ! When you don't know a person, making those assumptions is dangerouse, becouse you are deadly wrong.
salerno....US does not defend their country...they are far from their Borders. You are a baby. I was just there in USA. you think these people leave their families and that beautiful country and stay in Afghan just to find crabs in the sand ?? I dont think so.
No, they are in Afghanistan becouse they are paid to do so. They are unable to make a normal job becouse lack in education.
Yeah, lack of education, sure many Rag Heads can speak a few languages because they are all basically the same but very few can even read, isn't that right? Makes it real easy for the Taliban to tell the sheep what the Koran says, doesn't it?
Theprophet – you shift the point. I did not say americans are the ONLY ignorant people. There are many muslims unable to read the Quran, but this is another problem.
Good Posts Prophet Mohammad
@ Salerno, I am well aware being Haji does not allow one to sin, furthermore, Haji's may suffer greater punishment for the sins, that is the point I was making.
That should read about who He is not was.
How can You steal land that belongs to You??? Should the United States, Russia and England give back the lands They won in Wars???
GOD has given His answer in a lot of the Countries with GOD Hurricanes, Tornado, Flooding and other ways things that has happen by GOD!!! The problem the People are listening to GOD!!!
Larry Legel (US Army).....Sir...I think it must be people are not listening to God in your post. You have written people are listening..
Wow. Babble babble, arguement... some math... No progress...
If everyone stopped arguing about a history with a high probability of inaccuracy and looked at what's going on here, we can see that "God," or whatever you want to call it, would be more pleased if we all shut up and helped the person next to us who is starving and shivering. More walk, less talk. It's in front of you, but you're blindfolded by dogma.
Amen To That!!! Every Country should take care of Their Own People!!!
Neuralstimuli......your post is good. But to feed hungry and help each other we need peace of mind. To help poor also people must live first. How can do any work or at least pray for them when suicide bombing take place everywhere in the world.
I am a reborn Christian inside and out! Jesus walks with me and carries me through the good times and the bad. He will never leave my side! I do my best to follow in His ways but when others plain out lie about who He was and what He stood for I will never stop defending Him in any way I can! You do not know me so you cannot call me a hypocrite and if their were any other group or religion that kills my fellow Christians and lies about our Lord and Savior like I said I will defend His name in any way I can!
prophet – To be an Hjai does not allow to make sin, and bytheway any punishment is up to Allah.
@ Salerno- From the Islamics I've met I'm guessing they are all Munafiq since they all wait to complete the Haj once they are old so they can continue to sin all of their lives without fear of greater punishment once they become Haji. I just call it as I see it.
-The Prophet has Spoken
Airman WARfighter.....Take good care of your self as you are still there. May God bless you for serving to protect your country and people from further attacks.!!! Amen.
Munafiq is an hypocrital, who in the exteriority practices Islam, but in the interiority is a non-believer. They are considered more dangerouse than the openly non-believers. Some new islamic fondamentalists are in this category, but you are the equivalent inside the christianity.
Posters get off your own holy wars against each other, and celebrate that something good is happening in Afghanistan. For once a positive story. I've fought there and saw very little positve attributes. Dirt and ruin. Hopefully the site wont become a place of ruin by the Taliban.
To all men and women fighting and giving aid to Afghanistan for their future of becoming a free and democratic state that is a friend and ally with us in our war on terror, MAY GOD BE WITH YOU AND BRING YOU HOME SAFELY TO YOUR FAMILIES!
salerno..... I have a feeling that you are dreaming to wear a suicide west for your self ??? If you do ask God first.
Dindy – As always your feeling is wrong. You are unable to understand even the simplest thing.
salerno...I am sorry because I have to tell the same thing to you. "you cant understand the simplest thing"
I am not sorry becouse you gave me the possibility to show the highest form of charity, the spiritual one: tolerating stupid people. I have no intention to wear a suicide vest. That's your twisted imagination. Keep focusing on reality.
SALERNO...THE REALITY IS ONE MAN CALL BIN THINKS HE CAN PUNISH ANYONE THE WAY HE WANTS. SO HE TRAINS SUICIDE BOMBERS. YOU JUSTIFY THEM . SO I AM NOT IMAGINING OR TWISTED LIKE YOU SAY. WHY YOU THINK THEY ARE CORRECT IN DOING IT? THEN WHY YOU THINK ..IT IS WRONG TO DEFEND ONCE LIFE AND COUNTRY FROM THEM IS WRONG. ?
DAN -1- Bin does not want to punish anyone. He just reacted to US.
2- You justifie civilians killing, I do not.
3- US military does not defend their country, as they are far out the borders.
@ salerno- You know what they say- Practice makes Perfect.
practice make perfects if you have the right disposition.
I am sorry ..the word 'filled" is a mistake. It should be filed.
I truly meant that you would be found and that maybe your parents had once brought Jesus into your life, but please tell me what munafq means?
How would You know??? Have You meet Him???
I wouldn't mind meeting Him!!! I just wish He would stop writing like that... It is better when He doesn't do it!!!
Your rants about Hinduism as criminal make no sense. Can I smack you?!
Yacobi talks in a metaphoric way to indicate the negativity. She is very intelligent. Muslims believe in Jesus and in his second come.
So then he/she is a racist when he/she uses Hindu in his/her sentences, correct? Also how can he/she relate Hinduism with American freedom and democracy? If Islam Is the most tolerate religion why then does he/she say to those who do not adhere to Islam if you play then you pay and that the truth of 360 degrees has the right to hand out the punishment to those who play, according to him/her break sharia laws?
Dan – as you are a "munafiq" for the christians, your preyers sound like a curse.
I really wonder if the Truth is to kill People are like most Bibles is to Love all the People???
Salerno you are a lost soul and I will pray for you.
Nice try Amrullah, but I don't think it would be enough for americans to stop the war. IED are more effective.
Suicide bombers target police officers or nato convoy. Civilians are endangered bu US invasion and american's remorse is higly hypocrital. They intentionally targeted civilians when bombed TV building, or trains in Serbia, or villages in Afghanistan.
Additionally in Sri Lanka suicide bombers were Hindu Tamil, not muslims from AlQaeda. Suicide bombers are the only possible way of fighting against an overwelming enemy.
Salerno....Tamil Suicide bombers were trained out side Sri lanka at the beginning. Names were different. But both Al qaeda and LTTE talked the same language. Overwhelming enemies on this planet are not Americans . But people like you who support devil"s Army. Because many who killed by suicide bombers in my country and in Afghanistan are innocent civilians. . These suicide bombers have killed thousand of civilians here and there more than any official army ever did. We dont want things like that again anywhere. .
Dindy .- Americans are barbarians. They massacred all the civilians in Falluja including children using MK77, a napalm-like material. They tortured prisoners. Suicide bombers are the only way people chan defend themselves from their evil aggression in Afghanistan like in Iraq.
can ( not chan).
Salerno......YOU HAVE SAID .Americans are barbarians...I would say you are really uneducated to say it. You see people from the color of the glasses you wear. Human are same all over the world. There are good and bad in every nationality.
Salerno....Suicide bombers can be any nationality but they talk same language.
When I told americans are barbarian I was referring to the military killers, not to the 63% of americans contrarian to the Afghan war. We are the majority, but we do not count.
@ Salerno- Anyone who glorifies Suicide Bombers is a pathetic coward, end of story.
Theprophet – Suicide bombers are courageous becouse they sacrifie their life. This is a fact.
@ salerno- You are wrong, they are cowardly and vicious and chose suicide as a way out of their pathetic little lives because they felt they were useless to their families rather than try to go through life and make a positive difference0 they chose the easy way out, they are pathetic and so are you.
-The Prophet has Spoken.
An idiot has spoken, not a prophet ! HAHAHA !!! There are different types of suicide bombers. Sometimes they are educated and adults, in many case they are young having lost their father during the war against the US and are trained to do so. It is normal in that situation, but the responsibility is on the US, as they killed their family. Sometimes they are very old like the 64 y/o woman who lost her son. They are a powerfull tool against the americans and the demonstration their policy is wrong.
@ salerno- Yes Idiot, you have spoken but few are listening. Yes there are two types of suicide bombers, the dead and the duds, both are pathetic, I think you are the dud.
Dead and dud are opposite cathegories under a another perspective. If you change perspective you can obtain different cathegories. For istance you can catalogue the suicide bombers by the vehicle used to carry the esplosive too, and so on.
I posted Jan 18th at 10:05 am. It is my reply to the names above my comment. Sorry I forgot to type my name at the first place.
Keep playing your rap ....God has never told anyone to be stupid in any scripture. Buddha gave his wife also to someone in a story in Tripitaka. Also Buddha has jumped into a Lion"s Den one time because the cubs were hungry. Has God told in any scripture to wait till someone destroy you completely. Read old testimony. Coming from Sri lanka I am the first one who does not like war. Because we know how bitter it is. Yet .. we cant unleash a tiger tail. If we do tiger eat us. Please remember God never have told us to be stupid. We dont wait till devil eat us. We are told to crush the serpent under the feet and do not fear. God does not like cowards. That is why God blessed David.
If Bin has taken the law to his hand someone else must take it back from his hand.
Otherwise Bin will think he can do anything to anyone and that is very dangerous.
Sri Lanka ? Buddha ? Tigers ? Your comments are out of the topic. We are talking about an aggression to the Afghan people using religious pretests and weapons of mass destruction. Terrorism is a problem that can be addressed by internal security.
it can onlt be accrued by military operations killing civilians.
please read "only" not "onlt".
salerno...you are not worried when suicide bombers target police officers and kill them with innocent civilians. But you are worried if some else do it as you say they do. very funny.
Salerno ..I used all the example to make you understand that people should not do any more attacks like 9/11. It cant be justified . It was the worst crime I saw in my life time. No one died their from my family here or there. Yet Bin is not the Judge of universe to take law to his hand. I used those words (Buddha..etc ) to tell God is different than anyone and God has not told ..not to defend.
Why then did al Qaeda bomb the USS Cole and the Embassies in Africa and the 9/11 attacks? Terrorism is not an internal security problem it is an international problem! Lets not forget the London bus bombings or the train bombings in Madrid! You Islamic extremists have started a war against the western world and we will allow you no safe haven anywhere in the world! All terrorists, including those who rule or have ruled a government under terror will face God's judgment and may He have mercy on your souls!!!
Dindy-Dan – You were not able to overcome my argument. I told American war created support and enhanced AlQaeda recruitement, even in countries where it was not present ( Yemen, Somalia, Iraq), while they have been unable to capture the main Alaeda leaders and the main people harboring them. 9/11 was not the worst crime, it was a reaction to US similar crimes in Iraq, Sudan. The Cole attack was a military target, but US responded killing civilians in Sudan and Iraq. So you got what you sown.
Thanks to Arwa Damon for peaceful article .
Please guys!! stop this . If anyone help to build Afghanistan ...let them do it. Why we get upset about it. To understand anything beyond earth we have to be spiritually connected with God. Then God reveal the truth. Any BIG QUESTION is very easy to God. It is wise to ask directly from GOD and see what God say. Jesus is love. There is no question about it. The love for God. Nothing else. When the human fails it is God"s love which keep us alive. Our patents can forget about us. Yet God never does. When we taste our own tears in dessert storms it is God who comfort us. My God is every thing to me. When every one letting me down it is my God who lift my spirit. Almighty God is all comfort and trustworthy.
sorry it should be "parents" not patents
amen to that dindy, I totally agree with you, for his mercys are new every morning , yes god is love , for we are nothing with out god which is love
I forgot this other scripture too dindy, for WE ALL FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD , meaning everyone , yes you and me
May God take all of us out from this terrible situation . Amen!!!
Dindy and mcmurdo – you speak about love and Jesus but support the war in Afghanistan killing innocent civilians (and american soldiers). How to esplain this contradiction ? Jesus never supported violence even towards his enemies and did not push christians to any phisical fight.
Good posting,salerno. Obviously these people are not Christians and so talking to them about Jesus is a waste of time. They simply have too much hate in them.
Yes Jesus said love your enemy and God will throw heaping coals of fire upon their heads and that is exactly what God is allowing the United States to do! WE have offered our love and assistance to the Islamic people in both Iraq and Afghanistan but with the extremists this is a war against the anti-Christ and I do not think Jesus would have us turn the other cheek! After all in the end God will have them crying for mercy while their hiding in caves from the fire pouring down upon their heads and WE THE FREE MAY BE THE TOOL GOD USES FOR THAT JOB!!!
Dan – You have unmasked your evil face right now. You are working for the Anti-Christ as the Americans are exterminating innocent civiliaans exactly like the Nazi did using the same ROE even against children. Americans are even worst of the Nazi
becouse they lie very well and they are more succesfull in deceiving ignorant people.
Dan – you are confused. Muslims believe in Christ. They know the anti-christ will come, like it is also reported in S. John revelation. He will try to imitate religion and to justifie violence through the religion right like you are trying to do. We are not quite yet at that point, but very close.
Additionally Islam criticizes the trinity concept as misleading, if you think God can be divided in 3 personalities. God has attributes but not parts. If trinity would be considered under different perspective, as a process from the human perspective could be correct, but not in absolute terms. Islam provide Allah with 99 names, but those do not alter His unity. The same should be correct for the trinity.
@ Salerno and Dan-
Neither of you can see your problem, you are both arguing about parts, pieces, attributes and labels, Catholic, Islam, Baptist, whatever, neither or you are looking into the VALUE or MEANING as a whole, if you were, you wouldn't be arguing.
– The Prophet has Spoken.
Theprophet – I talk about label (Islam) becouse people are making mistakes about Islam. I esplained the Islam tradition and the relative concept of the God's indivisibility, treathened by the trinity.
@ Salerno- No- like all radicals- you try to belittle other Religions (like I enjoy doing) and try to support the terrorists (Islam, Muslins and most other religions- just to be fair), but you are not here to bring peace- you are here to recruit terrorists.
Theprophet – you are right when you say I am radical, but I consider terrorists like Obama and AlZawahiri moderate muslims, as they do not fully respect the Quran. Anyway I support the muslims when they fight for self-defense after a foreign aggression like in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Those two Children are giving Me a HEADACHE!!!
We are not in Afghanistan to occupy it, we are there to help them to stand up against killers and murderers and anyone that does not believe in the trinity will not see God's glory in heaven!
Jesus never spoke of anything other than LOVE for one another and to FORGIVE one another and to REPENT from all your sins! He also never spoke of truth of 360 degrees, He did however speak of the coming of the Holy Spirit that would help His disciples after His resurrection and ascension to heaven, to do the miracles that He had done when He was with them!
Sorry folks,I didn't post the above. Of course we're there to occupy that country and don't let anyone fool you otherwise!
is it ignorance? or a big shot at humor?
If Jesus talks nothing but love??? Why does that Catholic end up doing everything He doesn't want done??? Do You really think Jesus will take all of your sins???
If you believe he died for your sins they all will be washed away if you ask for forgiveness! The Holy spirit will enter your soul and help you to become more like Him!
Then there will be glory.
All evil will perish! And 360 degrees of death and destruction is the worst evil which follows the way of the devil!
May they have God"s Glory forever and able to enjoy peace. May God help innocent civilians in Afghanistan and save them from suicide bombers!! Amen.
Dindy – You talk about miracles after crucifission, but may be people were distract becouse they continued persecuting the christians for centuries. So it was not so clear Jesus was the messiah.
