Except that Dharmasherab's quotes are full of lies and misinformation about Islam.
We have provided original trusted canonical sources to back up our solid statements. I'm sorry, but it's time for you guys to provide some substance to your arguments.

Re: Muhammad - Worthy of respect?

Calling Muhammad a rapist is not slander - because that is what he actually did. I suspect many Muslims would disagree. A Buddhist discussion forum is not the proper place to make these claims against the founder of another world religion. Why disparage other faiths here? I get that all this is uns...

Re: Muhammad - Worthy of respect?

I have justified my description of Muhammad with canonical sources. I have made my stance against islamofascism clear and morally justified. I have warned in the past about the numerous problems and dangers that we are now living with in our democracies. I am warning about future attacks with chemic...

Re: Muhammad - Worthy of respect?

I'm damn well certain the UK has not allowed any known ISIS fighters to return to the UK, obviously they're talking about unknown ISIS fighters probably being among people returning to the UK. Robert Spencer is a known hatemonger, obviously he deserves to be banned, just like any real ISIS fighters...

Re: Muhammad - Worthy of respect?

They have barred Robert Spencer from entering, while allowing hundreds of ISIS jihadists to return and remain in the UK. If they did not claim it, they did worse: they acted in acordance to it. Do you welcome ISIS jihadists in the UK, Mr Man? So ""claim that Robert Spencer is more dangerous than th...

Re: Muhammad - Worthy of respect?

IMO demonizing Muslims is unskillful. Which muslims are being demonized? The communists muslims, the social democrat muslims, the social liberal muslims, the liberal muslims, the libertarian muslims, the conservative muslims, the ultraconservative muslims, the fascist muslims, or the jihadist musli...

Re: Muhammad - Worthy of respect?

For exampe, if the UK authorities claim that Robert Spencer is more dangerous than the hundreds of ISIS jihadists that have returned to the UK, then they are doing a clear disservice to the British citizens. Pointing this out is not bigotd or intolerant. It's common sense. Hi Modus Do the UK author...

Re: Muhammad - Worthy of respect?

I have noted the “canonical” and classical sources, even tracing the origin of the story. I am not paid to defend Islam and it probably needs no defense from people like me. I doubt any more light will be shed by my repeating the 1,000 and more years old and ongoing extensive debunking of this sort...

Aisha's age is not the only thing criticizable about Muhammad, as can be seen in the following quotes of the canonical texts: The Quran says: 5:38 Cut off the hands of thieves , whether they are male or female, as punishment for what they have done—a deterrent from God: God is almighty and wise. 39 ...

No, that is simply not true. What is the motive for this stream of unreasoning hatred? ......

Re: Is postmodernism "a product of sheer stupidity" according to Buddhism ?

Hello. Postmodernism is also , if not primarily, a product of lies. The Sokal Affair exposed the pretentious lies of that particular group of pseudointellectuals. Better yet, his book "Fashionable Nonsense" (aka "Intellectual Impostures"), denounces the incredible level of lies those people propagat...

Hello DW. It's been a long time since I last loged in. I had to leave because I was adding too much conflict and wasn't speaking effectively. Best I accept I am not effective and turn off the Politics section. I do not regret telling the truth. I regret telling it harshly, which ends up obscuring tr...

Re: Pauline Hanson calls for Muslim immigration ban in maiden speech to Senate

I agree that it's not a perfect solution. Not even a good one. But it's better than what we are doing. The refugee camps in Europe are also breeding grounds for extremism. "The good is the enemy of the perfect". When we try to do everything perfectly we might end up doing terrible things. And that's...
