1. I did not call Dubai liberal. That is misrepresenting my point. I stated that Dubai had the highest concentration of liberals in the Middle East which, if you have bothered to read my other posts in this thread for educational purposes, you would've known is not alot of people.
2. That is outright ridiculous. If you will, please point to where I stated that in the first place. If I recall, all I said was that Dubai does not utilize Sharia law in all legal situations and therefore is unlike most Islamic countries such as Egypt or Saudi Arabia. Therefore Dubai has progressed significantly in comparison to such countries.
If you had bothered to read the rest of the goddamn sentence you would've found that I state immediately afterward "at least for a good chunk of it's history". And not only that, but you haven't responded to my question. What do you even mean by such statements like "Iran and Lebanon have structures stuck in the 80' and 90' because that's when Islam entered, if they didn't had just a few decades in Islam they would be as shitty brained as the rest of their Muslim buddies"? Such statements show a profound lack of the knowledge of Middle Eastern culture and history that you claim to have.
You believe that Islam and political Islam are the same and because of this, you get sentences such as the quoted one above. You get vague, nonsensical rants stating that Iran and Lebanon only became Islamic during the 50s and 60s while simultaneously calling them Muslim, in past tense which throws away any excuses you have for making such stupid sentence outside of either being drunk or not knowing how to write English which are two excuses I can sympathize with.
So you're either agnostic or Christian. Excuse me for such absolutist thinking by the way. It seems to me that most people in this forum self-proclaim themselves as either atheist, agnostic, or Christian. There is also a rare chance that you may be a European nationalist conservative deist which is the first I have ever seen.
1. Yes , you did
2. Quoting you: "Dubai does not utilize Sharia Law IN ALL LEGAL situations, there for is unlike most Islamic countries" . The problem with you is the same with every Muslim: it's impossible to defend Islam or Muslim countries under a logical point of view, specially trying to imply Dubai doesn't use Sharia Law just because a few gated Gringo's neighborhoods are like Switzerland over there. Step out of the gate and Sharia Law is the law, there's no alternative, implying the opposite is either agenda or blunt lies.
2.1- The rest of Muslim countries is a way longer list than Egypt or Saudi Arabia.
Includes Afghanistan, Lebanon after Hezbollah and Palestinian invasion, Algeria, Mali, Mauirtania, Malasia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, Senegal, Somalia, Sierra Leone, UAE, Guinea, Malasya, Kwait, Albania, Oman, Kosovo...list goes on. Not one, not a single one, has decent civil rights. It's quite Amazing how liberal all those countries are. Nothing in common that might unite their barbaric way of living? I mean, there's only one country in the world where is legal to have slaves and by chance is Muslim Mauritania. There's only a handful of countries where is acceptable to have slaves, mind you they are also all Islamic. Hummm.... of course, someone like you will say is a unfortunate coincidence.
2.2- I didn't said Islam political and religious are the same, I said there's only Islam, there isn't moderated Islam or radical Islam. Islam, Qu'ran, Haddiths and Sunna can't exist without political, social, religious and judiciary combined. Being a good Muslim is to Jihad what Jihad is to Caliphate and what Caliphate is to Sharia. Same old thing for 1.500 years. Either take over by sword Mohammad and ISIS style or take over by immigration. Never was any sort of peaceful existence between the Muslim world with any other culture, not even peace between themselves.
2.3 - I meant exactly what I said comparing structures in Lebanon and Iran with the rest. One thing is buying things and brains with oil money, other is creating the blue prints, the technology, have scientific and technological studies and papers, Islam makes any given culture/country go back to the stone ages. Every single time, never fails.
What is the first thing Muslims burn? Libraries, art, destroy monuments. There isn't a single advanced country that got half decent without equal rights for women, protective laws for children, even less countries that give zero value to art and creativity
Islam is the death of thought, imagination, creativity and personal freedom of any kind. What makes you think a system that tells you what to do, to think, say, even what to eat, can generate any sort of advance, discover, tech?
2.4- You seem more interested in my upbringing than facts. If I'm a European nationalist, history remains the same as if I was a Socialist Liberal, Dubai's reality wont change according to my political afilition or religious belief. Islam is Islam if I'm Atheist, Catholic or agnostic.
I don't own you anything, but I feel given today, so i will answer. I'm not a European Nationalist because I'm not European, I do descend from Europeans from most part. I'm not Atheist, Christian or Agnostic, I consider myself a spiritualist. I believe in God, if there's one or 5 I don't really care about that fact, I have peace with the unknown and I'm open to different sorts of realities. I was raised Catholic because that's the main religion in my country, the second religion is Atheism. And yes, I consider Atheist the most religious of them all, they talk more about God not existing than faithfuls talk about their God existing. I like Buddhism too, Kardecism, I believe in energy and Quantum physics to me is a good way to explain what after death might be.
