    Isn't Pakistan the country that least likes the US on average? (second place being Serbia of course).

    hiding it since its not directly related thread.

    I wasn't just talking about Pakistan but about South Asians in general (Pakistan, Indian Muslims, Bangladesh) and yes agreed about Pakistanis not liking US.

    But whatever happens, any uprising in Saudi Arabia will have more effect than anything so far. Fingers crossed for march 11.

    It must be really awkward for Bosniaks and Albanians when they go to Mecca for the hadj and have to cough and turn their heads whenever the topic of the US comes up lol.

    I went to school with a hot Bosniak chick and a cool Albanian dude with a funny name, refugees own.

    Welcome to America! The only Serbs here are genius inventors who don't really care about irredentistic ethnic cleansing.

    Right?

    I had some Albanian girls at my high school and they were really good looking. Also there was a Serbian guy and he was kind of an asshole .

    If I recall correctly, Bush's approval rating in Albania was close to ninety percent when he left office or almost four and a half times what it was here. I'm surprised that the guy hasn't already moved there and ran for President.

    Listening to NPR.
    One of the correspondents is now in a middle of an attack.
    Also, speaking as someone who loves his Czech grandpa (now deceased), JD, what the fuck xenophobic bullshit are you spouting about Czechs you mafioso bastard?
    I mean, seriously, I know you were joking at first and I just wanted to avoid drama, but not it's just getting fucking stale and you need to shut the fuck up when you speak shit like that in front of member who's trying to connect with family over there.
    Jesus. There's a running gag and then there was....that!
    And no, I don't give a shit that you know more about that area than me.

    Slavs, like the Canadians, make me desire to punch the nearest small animal.

    I'm not entirely sure why, though.

    And if they did....man....that would be the end of the Muslim world accepting them as the custodians of the places, let alone their own people.
    Don't get the muslim world wrong, the large majority of us recognize the need for muslim countries' rulers to get their acts straight or get the hell out.

    Hell, it boggles my mind to think of the ridiculous things that muslim rulers do and continue to do given the severe warnings clearly outlined in the Quran and Hadith for the unjust ruler. In the past, honourable rulers of the ummah would be so selfless that they would live a meager living, the same as his fellow people.
    They were so careful in their actions and judgments because they feared to disobey the laws of God and to be an unjust ruler.
    Now we have these pathetic men.. -_-

    But I digress, whoever starts a protest or riot in Mecca or Medina will be out of their effing mind. Mecca and Medina are not the place to start crap like that. Millions of people all over the world spend their lives wishing to place their feet in those cities, thousands have written in their wills that they want their funerals to take place in the Grand Mosque of Mecca.
    A few billion hearts are connected to those cities.

    No matter what kind of muslim a person is, even one "born into the religion" and doesn't know much about Islam at all, even those corrupted leaders, we all know: you don't start trouble there.

    If something happens there, trust me, you will see an explosion of protests in the world unlike anything you could ever imagine.

    So if Mecca is the holiest city what would the opposite be?
    Newark? Slough? Prague?

    Like in the Koran there's an actual passage telling Muslims to never ever go to these places.

    I mean why else do you think the Ottomans didn't go beyond Vienna?? It wasn't because of the military defeat, no sir, common myth, it was because you know where was right over the hills.

    Hmm.. there is no "abhorred" place in the world which a muslim is prohibited in visiting or living in. If that was so, why would there be muslims living in every country in the world?

    And the prophet did speak on the Jerseyites.

    "You will find yourselves face to face one day with great false tanned spiny headed men of the village of New'ark, they will be known to you as "Quaidos", fear them for they are not of god or man."

    The invasion and occupation of Sicily and southern Italy by the Arab Caliphates was an attempt to spare the world of a coming calamity.

    But the Normans pushed the Arabs out, heedless to the warnings of what had to be stopped...

    "False tanned" XD

    The nice thing about Islam is that everyone is bent on authenticity. If someone says that the Prophet said so-and-so, and it's not a well known quotation, they'll be rapid fire slapped in the face with "What's the reference?!" and if it's proven to be a fabricated quotation, it's completely disregarded.

    It's great cuz there's no room for deviation. That way, when a new sect pops up, it's clearly distinguishable from the true teachings.

    EDIT: Bleh, i've only studied in depth up to the History of Andalus. Was about to begin a course on Ottoman empire but didn't work out. Gotta get on that soon.
