Good for them, they can continue the fight against the non believers, as those verses say.

But I have to say it again, ah those moderate Muslims...

Maybe they started citing verses from the Qoran as well? I see news say at least 27 dead, I guess they couldn't learn the Qoran.

It's a fine line. I don't think that particular post could be said to cross it on its own...

Edit: but elsewhere...

Alright, fair enough....

But, if I may, a guy got banned for saying piss off to someone and this is all right?

Allow me, please, to scratch my head and look at you with a bemused look while my lips are silently pronouncing W-T-F.

Oh honey, I'm sure! I don't mind it.

I just don't see any sense in banning someone for two little innocent words compared to the amount of brown smelling digested food some people are talking here about people from a community of this forum.

I like to know what people are thinking. Free speech isn't just about being lovely - it's also about knowing which buggers you've got to watch.

Indeed, that is something I got from you and try to follow.

Sometimes, it is difficult to accept and let go, especially when the putrefaction of the said rejected food reach a level of stomach twisting that create a gagging reflex.

18 according to the Beeb and two gunmen dead though whether they're in that total or not the article doesn't say. One of the dead was a Belgian MP - Geoffrey Dieudonne.

Nobody who told us yet this was all due to Western interference in the ME
