i think you do not want to understand the meaning of what i said, you just read the words.
yes there is an Islamic law ,but as i said Turkey is a secular country. please understand what i mean this time.
Wasn't the people who built that mosque on top of a temple the same ones that conquered that area? If so then it is not the same as the muslims buildings a mosque near ground zero seeing how the same people that conquered that area are the same ones who built that mosque while the ones who flew planes into buildings are not the same ones who are building the mosque.Isn't there a big historical stink in Israel about some Muslim Mosque that was built atop a temple when the Muslim's conquered the area? I seem to remember something like that. Insult to injury. Modus Operandi. Many people, including myself, consider this to be similar in principle.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I think it is lack of sensitivity on their part to want to build it right there. It is also just plain stupid for them to build it as someone is going to strike at it. Perhaps that is their plan to build it and after its attacked they can show the world how evil we are. I don't know it just sucks. Kind of like letting Rev Phelps and inbred clan cavort around the country side.
Why is it up to US to be the tolerant when that word hardly exists in their vocabularies?
There is too much I just do not understand to form a well-advised answer. Wish I could be more help.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
lmfao you can't be serious can you? There was no such thing as equal rights under the Ottoman Empire, women were relegated to 2nd class citizen status; whereas, Christians and Jews were relegated to third class status as dhimmi. And you were basically ****ed if you were a pagan.are we talking about the rights ? if so, then The ottoman empire is better than today's America.
Because they accepted their dhimmitude. That doesn't mean that they had anything that resembled equal rights. Even after the Tanzimat reformations of the Ottoman Empire there was still de jure if not de facto discrimination against and exploitation of non-Muslims.and if what you said is right, then could you please explan me how non-muslims in the empire lived for 500 years without any 'conflict'.
. . . just to make the rest of us happy?
- Do not approve of
- Have not spoken in support of
- Believe no reasonable person would approve of
- Have no involvement in
- Have provided no material support for
Why do we not simply assume that they disapprove of it, unless their words or actions explicitly contradict this assumption?
Hell, if that's the route we're going, I believe Captain America has not done enough to properly denounce murder -- not the crime, but individual murders. He should be ashamed of his lack of repugnation, perhaps even his silent approvals, over that crime. He should stand up on the street and publicly denounce each and every murder which occurs all across this great land.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
