    This seems to be a popular jeer in certain circles, but I think it should be pointed out in reply that it's also true that, if the West were to commit any ground troops to this effort (not including the special forces who already do significant work against the IS in Iraq), the same circles would be crying 'imperialism', 'neocolonialism', and other such insults from the rooftops.
    True, I am not blaming the West, I am just saying that it's stupid to say that Moderate Muslims are doing nothing when they're clearly doing more than those who so easily lay the blame do.

    We all have our weird things. In Egypt we sometimes celebrate some day in the year (can't remember which one) by placing a knife under the door mat Overall, Gulf Arabs are ostensibly the weirdest because of what they wear.

    Seriously why do people don't think Muslims don't do enough about ISIS? you just think that we sit back and watch the news and agree with ISIS 100%. well guess what we don't.

    Majority of Muslims don't agree with ISIS and their dumb extreme actions does affect us Muslims. We cant even get on buses or public transport without people looking at us in disgust or verbally abuse us and act like we are the ones who go blowing up people.

    Even an American school nearby in Jeddah has got an ISIS threat just because its American and the population of the school is majority Muslim. Literally everyone hates our religion now and attacks it constantly.

    So i ask you what can Muslims do apart from educate our Muslim community. its not like we can all hold hands and go to Syria and knock em all out.

    Do you really think that if we knew someone who had terrorist ideologies we would just let them walk free, no because Muslims get killed too and at the end of the day its innocent human life that is killed whether a person is Muslim or not.

    /rant over :getmecoat:
    It's as simple as the Western world listen to what happens in the news - if a news presenter said the world would end in two days most people wouldn't question it, they'd just panic and believe it. You don't hear about Muslims going against ISIS in the news so people don't think they do.

    But yes, we can go out and obliterate the terrorists if we have a good plan.

    bruh that's kinda dangerous I wouldn't say it's too wierd though, how are egyptians with camels out of interest - in comparison to the gulfies? uno there's even a hadith with references how much arabs love camels with big humps...

    what they wear - thobes? I thought alot of arabs wore them?

    Big words from someone who types 'Moselms' deliberately to get a negative reaction from people here.
    Don't be childish. I've been using that spelling for longer than you have been alive (when it was the only one in use) and am not going to stop now because of deliberately hyper-sensitive children.

    1) a muslim prophet? is there a female muslim prophet? how do people even know what she looked like?
    2) why would anybody particularly want to look like a muslim prophet? christians don't dress like jesus, do they? jews don't dress as moses
