Why can't Muslims Take Criticism? (Page 143)
Leda Muir: Most ask, like if you order cigarettes, alcohol or drugs the medicine drugs they all ask a age are you 16 are you 18,21, because that stuff isn't safe in kid hands
Leda Muir: Pure Vanilla is a cure for toothache why is that forbidden unless you can do more with then i know, i know it is good to put on a sore tooth or for nice pastry and desserts
Zanjan: Underage boozers used to drink it to get stoned. Government thought if they banned it, that would cure their drinking problem.........the idiots finally realized humans can and will find another way. Whenever my friends visited Mexico, they brought me some back - a cake isn't a cake without it. As for the boozers, they moved on to Meth.
Leda Muir: That is something new, I heard Vanilla numbs a bit but make you stoned. Lavender where i live they grow in huge amount, let the purple flower dry and smoke it is like a strong drug, not illegal and not expensive. I bet also not very healthy to smoke that stuff i know i heard it as teen i was 15 and wanted to try i was so high i jumped from a few feet high out of my window and broke my leg, a arm and some ribs cracked. Let that stuff be for what it is, like vanilla is for desserts let lavender be as a good smelling flower.
Zanjan: Yes, some have to learn the hard way; usually, that kind of learning is the fastest. Those who don't learn aren't into exploration - they're on a self-destructive mission.
At least you don't see Muslims having a drinking problem..........not saying many don't do it behind closed doors, just that you wont see them or their kids drunk or high. Not that this makes up for other shortcomings - it means they know what they do.
There's a pandemic of addiction problems in society - Muslims aren't part of that problem.
Leda Muir: Not to be rude but Muslims love the girls of prostitution. I have a lot one ask me yo miss how much, then i think how you even dare to ask do i look like such woman
Zanjan: Um............yes; if not, then fast and loose. No offense - everyone sends a message, consciously or not. Seems you assumed they were willing to purchase, rather than conveying to you the image you represent. My dad once said the same thing to me because I was wearing a mini-skirt. He wasn't religious.
Leda Muir: It is a insult to them because also other males can do it but mostly they guys are from Muslim race
TheCovenant: A comment on most Christians I know:
God will reduce you to tears of shame reciting by heart the poems you would have written had your life been good.
TheCovenant: A horrible anti-Semitic statement I heard from a Palestinian commenting on the Nakba: Israelis are the people who learned their manners from the Nazis.
He also said that Palestinians have land deeds dating back from the 1000s of years from the land registry department, whereas Israeli settlers get their deeds directly from God.
I thought there would be more water in the promised land. Turns out I was wrong. Everybody just gives them shit.

ghostgeek: There does seem to be quite a hot "Cold War" going on in the middle east at the moment between the two great strains of Islam. Shame the rest of us get so much of our oil from that part of the world. It means we can't ignore what's going on.
TheCovenant: Good guess, the Roman wars, The Crusades, the Arab Israeli wars. there seems to be a common thread about the holy lands.
ghostgeek: Political stalemate in Israel, turmoil in Syria and Libya and missiles flying between Iran and Saudi. We live in interesting times, unfortunately.
TheCovenant: entropy, those moments when peace was so close you could almost smell it, then it is snatched into the jaws of war.
"Back up to when they shot the man who said peace could last forever"
ghostgeek: Israel, the last colonial outpost of Europe surrounded by a sea of hate. I can't see it lasting.
Blackshoes: Israel will remain until the return of Jesus Christ It was foretold long ago ', Just as the return of Israel was foretold.
"The Gathering of the Jews
Numerous biblical prophecies foretold of the re-gathering of Israel as a nation.
Approximately 2,700 years ago, God revealed to the prophet Ezekiel a "Valley of Dry Bones" (Ezekiel Chapter 37). God spoke of these bones (the Jews) gathered together and covered with flesh and muscles (re-gathered from the nations) with life being breathed into them (a dead nation brought to life once again).
"Then he said to me, 'Son of man, these bones represent the people of Israel. They are saying, 'We have become old, dry bones - all hope is gone.' Now give them this message from the Sovereign Lord: O my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again. Then I will bring you back to the land of Israel. When this happens, O my people, you will know that I am the Lord." Ezekiel 37:11-13 (NLT)
Beginning in the late 19th Century, the birth of the Zionist movement culminated in the gradual emigration of Jews from all over the world to resettle the land of Israel. Each decade the number of returning Jews increased, until finally the nation of Israel came to life once again in 1948.
Israel Becomes a Nation in a Single Day
God foretold long ago that after He brought His scattered people out from among the nations, He would declare them to be a nation in a single day:
"'Who has ever seen or heard of anything as strange as this? Has a nation ever been born in a single day? Has a country ever come forth in a mere moment? But by the time Jerusalem's birth pains begin, the baby will be born; the nation will come forth. Would I ever bring this nation to the point of birth and then not deliver it?' asks the Lord. 'No! I would never keep this nation from being born,' says your God." Isaiah 66:8-9 (NLT)
This is exactly what happened on May 14, 1948. Having been brought to the brink of extinction by the horrors of the Holocaust, facing persecution around the world, and surrounded by their enemies, the Jewish people gathered together in Israel and declared themselves a nation in a single day. The United States recognized Israel as a nation on that same day, and Israel's victories in the wars since have solidified their place among the nations of the world."
