Ever since the Trade Center Massacre, I have been trying to avoid this very conclusion, that Muslims place no value on human life. And now a Muslim is telling me that it is correct! I am still reluctant to believe it. I am going to try to spend some time in a Muslim chatroom this weekend, to see if I can't find Muslims of the opposite opinion. This is a major blow to my attempt to see Muslims as people, capable of civilised behavior and able to be reasoned with.Originally posted by Zargawee
Let me point to something , most of Arabs are Muslims , and the muslim look to life that it worths nothing , so it doesn't matter for us ( Muslims ) to live rich or poor , becuase eventually we are going to die , and what will we get from this life with us ? For You , a dead person gets nothing with him/her , but we muslims belive that a person actions in life is what he takes with him to the afterworld.
we DO NOT care for life.
i absolutely agree with this Siv...i found it funny that Bush stated that the oil fires would be considered a war crime (someone correct me if i am wrong in this claim, i heard it on public radio)...i don't think Americans are dumb, but some can be ignorant...and in our country this is more of a choice because of our freedoms...Originally posted by Siv
But Zargawee probably forgets that Bush was not elected President. So there are a lot of intelligent rational Americans out there who are totally against this war and some other such silly decisions made by Dubya.
Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said:
"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yea, even his own life--he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.
Wow. I have the same dilemna. Even after reading it I still won't accept it. I have too much faith in the human species. Maybe they are just confused or brainwashed?Ever since the Trade Center Massacre, I have been trying to avoid this very conclusion, that Muslims place no value on human life. And now a Muslim is telling me that it is correct!
How can a person who doesn't even value his OWN life place any value on the life of others?i am prety sure he is refering to their own lives, in the sense that good Muslim is not afraid of death.
you have to give up being self-centered for a start.Originally posted by russ_watters

Ok, so only non-humans can be muslims? Sorry, but the PRIMARY instinct of all humans is selfishness.you have to give up being self-centered for a start.
