Islamic questions and answers
Q: Did any Islamic country send troops to aid Palestinians in fighting against Israel during the last war ?
There is all this talk about "occupation", "oppression" and "massacre" by Israel towards Palestinians. Please provide a list of Islamic countries that have sent in troops to help Palestinians fight against Israel. If not, please explain why no Islamic country has sent in troops to aid Palestinians against Israel. Please provide facts only. Thank you!
A: Islamic states don't send much of anything to the Palestinians. Iran and Syria send a lot of money - millions a year. That aside, the Arab nations are not overly fond of the Palestinians. Jordan won't allow them in because when she did, they caused such trouble. Egypt used to 'occupy' Gaza, pre 1967; she mined the borders so the Palestinians could not leave and of course today, Egypt has a massive wall to stop Palestinians getting in. That says a lot! As for 'israeli occupation' - since Israel left Gaza almost five years ago, there is no such thing in that area. Israel only goes into areas to stop terrorism. Other than that she is only too happy to leave the Palestinians to their own devices - which involve teaching four year olds to become a 'shahid' or 'martyr' for Allah by murdering as many innocent Israelis as possible. http://www.arabsforisrael.com
Q: How has the Islamic religion influenced the society and its folllowers?
How has the Islamic religion influenced the society and its folllowers?
A: if you are talking about the middle east than i would say by making sure technology and knowledge does not advance. in the history of the nobel prize only 2 muslim men have won and even then they were only a co winner. if you take every nobel prize won and relate that to the number of people who won it in relation to their religion, statistics says muslims would have won every single nobel prize if they allowed the advancement of technology and knowledge because there are so many of them. thats pretty influential. sucks to. imagine that good that could have come out of it. the person above me is a moron. only a very tiny minority are considered terrorists by the west. everyone thinks they are doing the wishes of god.
Q: How hotly is evolution contested among Islamic scientists?
We all know that nearly all biologists and the like in the western world accept Darwinian evolution, and those that don't are quickly proved wrong, then deemed crackpots. However, is this the same case among scientists from the Islamic world? OK, allow me to rephrase the question: What is the current consensus and status quo of The Theory of Evolution in the Islamic world's scientific community. Any links to any polls, surveys or other statistic would go down swimmingly.
A: It depends on how prevalent the influence of clerics are in their country. Where Sharia law is able to exert power, you find the Islamic version of Creation Science. In places like Turkey, Jordan, or the United Arab Emirates, scientists are relatively free to pursue whatever avenue of inquiry they like.
Q: How does an Islamic Scholar or one who study at an Islamic university make money?
I just read a question on islamic scholars and it got me thinking. Okay these guys are smart and becoming knowledgeable, but how do they make money? if one spends like 4 years at a muslim university, what jobs does he get after wards? And are these good paying jobs?
A: ►► I'll take Sheikh Sa'ud Shuraim as an example. ◘◘ He became a teacher. ◘◘ He learned a lot so he was ranked higher and made a professor at a University. Of course, professors in all countries make much money. ◘◘ He was also appointed as Judge of a high court. There are many other ones, but the majority is teaching.
Q: What is the origin of the Islamic hostility toward the United States?
For year we have been at war with Islamic terrorist but no one that I know of has ever attempted to explain why they hate us. Prior to World War II we were much admired by these underdeveloped nations.
A: It's really quite obvious. The placement of US troops on holy lands in Saudi Arabia, the 1953 CIA coup toppling the democratic government of Iran for our oil interests, the on again off again diplomacy with Iran, Bin Laden, and Iraq before the Gulf War, how we claim to be fighting for democracy but instead give support to the most despotic governments such as those of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, the unnecessary invasion of Iraq in 2003, the prisoner abuses at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib, and of course our continued support of Israel.
Q: How many people were killed in the Islamic conquests (622-750 AD), and how many were killed in the Crusades?
Today the Arabs claim that the Islamic conquests were mostly political, while the Crusades were bloody and cruel. What is the truth? Bloggers... Do you have proof that the Arabs were merely defending themselves as they took over and looted Persian and Byzantine lands? The Crusade atrocities are well known. What about the civilians massacred by the Arabs in many countries? Isma'il... You haven't answered the question. Can you document where the Muslims helped build churches or cathedrals, other than help rebuilt them after an intolerant Muslim persecution destroyed the previous buildings in Jerusalem? We are talking about a people united by a faith in Islam. It doesn't matter if they considered themselves separate Arabic nations or not.
A: Both were bloody and cruel.
Q: Which nation continued to be ruled strictly by Islamic law despite all of the changes it underwent?
Which nation continued to be ruled strictly by Islamic law despite all of the changes it underwent in the postwar period? Was it Iran, India, Turkey, or Saudi Arabia?

Q: How does Marco Polo describe Muslims and the Islamic faith in his Travels? How do his descriptions reflect ?
How does Marco Polo describe Muslims and the Islamic faith in his Travels? How do his descriptions reflect his European Christian perspective? What biases does his account reveal?
A: I've not read the original book. Some scholars of today believe the entire Polo account of the journey is a fraud, something Marco dictated from a Genoa jail cell. He lived during the time of the final Christian Crusades. You can imagine what popular European opinion was.
Q: Are the Islamic countries that control the price of oil trying to destroy the US economy?
1. The price of oil goes from $35 per barrel to $110 in several years. 2.China and India have increased demand for oil during that period but not by 3X the previous price. 3.Islamic countries are the the major exporters of oil.
A: Back in the 70s, Oil quickly ran up to about $35.00 a barrell. America geared up for alternate fuels. They called them SynFuels back then. Once OPEC realized we were serious about creating different fuels, the price magically dropped to $17.00 a barrell. $35.00 was a "break even" price that meant it was not economically feasible to create alternative fuels at prices lower than $35.00 so guess what.........so here we are. If the socialists and America haters would allow us to develop our energy sources we could flip the bird to the middle east...........but the tree huggers won and here we are.

Q: What is the significants of the symbol on the Islamic flag?
I noticed there will be three planets in conjucture with a quater moon tonight and I seem to remember something about the planet Venus being next to a quartered moon being the symbol of the Islamic flag. Anyone know what the symbol means? Thanks in advance.
A: The Islamic flag is a white flag, not that of which you describe. The moon and crescent was introduced by the Ottoman Empire which is often mistaken to be the flag of Islam.
Q: What is Serbias or Eastern Orthodox countries relations with the Islamic world?
I want to know what do Serbian or Greek or Eastern Slavic countries people think of Muslims? not just the Bosnians but the Arabs and Muslims in other countries across the world? For example do the majority of Serbs or Eastern European people feel sympathy for the Palestinian people or do they support Israle? Do they think it is good America is invading the Islamic countres like Iraq and Afghanistan? Furthermore do any Muslims live in Serbia and how are they treated? Many thanks for your time.
A: The Eastern European people are not something monolitic.So,their attitude to muslims and Israelis is varies from one country to another. Serbians dislike Muslims actively-which is quite logical,after so many years of war;Muslims also dislike Serbians. And also very actively. Russians dislike both Arabs and Jews, but the official position of Russia is traditionally pro-arab (since the time of Cold War, when America supported israel and Russia supported Arabs).It has nothing to do with religion. Ukraine is more pro-Israeli, in part because Russia is more pro-Arab. Poland is actively pro-Israeli,as well as Chequia. Greece actively dislikes Mulims(because of her long conflict with Turks),but she dislikes Israel even more(Greece is traditionally very anti-semitic country). About Iraq and Afghanistan. Russia opposed it, and Russians are in general opposing strike pn Iraq -but supporting strike on Afghanistan . Ukraine supports the attack on Iraq and Afghanistan,and her troops are participating in operations in both these countries. Belorussia is against both Iraq and Afghanistan attacks. Serbia supports the strike on Irak and Afghanistan.actively. Poland and Chequia are in general supporting the attack on Iraq, but about the Afghanistan- it´s simply too far from them and does not matter to them anything. Let´s say they are indifferent. Greece officially supports, but refused to take part in the strikes, and the Greeks, as far as I know, are in general against the attacks both on Iraq and Afghanistan. .
