Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

As it happens, I was just playing this album in the car yesterday, so I thought I'd brighten everyone's day with a bit of Neil.

Enjoy

One of my favorites.

He freaked out a lot of people in Locarno when he was there last year, as I think they were expecting an acoustic set, and instead got 20min feedback solos.

Personally, I would have been freaked out had he done the wimpy acoustic stuff.

Anyway, I much prefer this song from that album.

Bumped on this on another forum I frequent.

I suppose this is amusing but the Quran isn't a science class nor does it protect against idiots making videos. The answer to the question must be "the Quran doesn't give this information so I won't presume to guess".

Given that he also faced derision across the Middle East, points to the fact that he is rather naive on scientific matters.
However you have to applaud the efforts of Israeli owned MEMRI in cherry-picking and translating the most idiotic statements as somehow being representative.

Where "Israeli" is an Israeli person rather than the State of Israel. Care should be sought when attributing bias to ethnicity or nationality. Al Jazeera isn't a worse or more biased news agency because its Arab or Muslim owned. Although in the case if MEMRI you happen to be right on the money

MEMRI does us all a service with its translations. Or do you think information should be restricted?

Al Jazeera is biased though, it is owned by the Qatari government, and that in turn is run by the Al Thani family.
