No man, I actually laughed when i heard them, just for the people that think every middle eastern is some turban-toting terrorist, just setting them straight.vpraidersfan1 said:You live in Arizona. Why you preaching yourself? I was j/k.
Anyhow, wtf has your panties in a bunch? You sound like a representative, defending your people, and honoring them.
Cut the crap. I'm sorry,and my comments were unnecesary. I'm thinking about sigging them though...

I never meant that praying was a bad thing, it isn't at all, im actually sorry if I came across that way, because I didnt mean that at all. You know how people have a stereotypical image of Middle Easterns in their head, you know, what they see on TV, what they hear on the news, or in all the movies where every single middle eastern is a terrorist or uncivilized. They see the people on CNN and automatically assosciate it with ALL middle eastern people. They don't show how people live. My mother grew up in Iran, she became rich(I think this was in the time of the revoluton, i could be mistaken though) Her and her parents lived lavishly in a house and society, much closer to ours then you would think. She came to the US 5 years before i was born, and made a nice lifestyle here.Fastecho419 said:I'm Lebanese. And proud to be too.
Oh yeah, and born2drive, what's the heck are you talking about that 'muslim' is a religion? Islam is a religion, muslim is the people of the religion. Also, nothign is wrong with people praying. Also, your also dumb for saying we pray at only noon. We pray before the sun comes up, then at noon, then another prayer before the sun comes down. Then one right when the sun comes down. Then we have a night prayer. Ok? So stop acting like all muslims are crazy's. Ok? Jeeze, I hate steroptypical people like you. Not all the muslims are like those who live out in Afganistan.
A LOT of us don't blow ourselves up. Actually, in the Koran it says that suicide is sinful. It won't let you get into paradise. Also, there are three different kinds of muslim. The Sunni's, which are the original group. Then there are the Shiitee's, who are radical and do terroristic acts most of the time. You also have the Wahabi's, who are quite radical in their own way. They have a thin balance on reality, which is where Osama came from. So think before you talk Born2drive, cuz you'll just end up making a fool of yourself and insulting other people.
Oh yeah, and Fiki, there is only a small percentage of the middle East population that has made the rest of us look bad. It's these terrorist Wahabi's and Shiitee's that make the rest of us look bad. We can't help the things they do. I mean, that's just how it is. That's the thing we want to correct, ever since 9/11 people have looked at hte middle east like some terrible place of heathens. Well I've been to the middle east quite a few times and I assure everyone here it's a nice place. Also, the middle east isn't all desert. We have rivers, and oceans and mountains too... Also, Lebanon is up against the Medditeranean sea, and it's really nice there. Beautiful place to visit.
