Vodka Zombie: I've met people who actually believe this about Muslims.


what, that there is a hand for doing clean things (right), and a hand for doing unclean things(left)?  That this is so pervasive a part of the culture, that when the Basque controlled what is now Spain, they changed the very word  for "left" - instead of being based on the latin "siniestra" (from which we get the word "sinister") it based on "ezker."

Yes, there is no "clean" hand, and no "dirty" hand.  You win the prize.  The left hand is hell, the right hand is heaven, though.  The left hand - exactly as the post you were replying to said - is typically used for dirty tasks.  The right hand, for clean tasks.  While the Koran itself doesn't say much of anything on the subject, it is very very much part of Sunnah, being mentioned in lots and lots of Hadith.

But go on thinking people who say such things are stupid.

It may not be true for ALL Muslims, but it's certainly true for SOME Muslims.  It's also true in a lot of Asian cultures that aren't Muslim.  Korea, for example, is probably one of the least Muslim countries on Earth, but the left hand is still considered to be "dirty" or "inferior" there, and there are cultural rules against doing certain things with the left hand.  The majority of non-Muslim Indians and Nepalis had cultural taboos concerning the left hand.

Even European culture has had for centuries the idea that the left is somehow "bad."  Witness the English word sinister.

So you've "met people who actually believe this about Muslims," hunh?  Have you ever met any actual Muslims?

He's not a terrorist until there's a fair trial.

It's not a fair trial until Dick Cheney's trial.

timswar: Plenty of peopl can use the restroom with one hand, is this guy's other hand so weak he can't accomplish that?

I'm not sure how reasonable it is that he's allowed any implement that could potentially be a weapon. Of course, it's also unreasonable to hold him indefinitely until you figure out what to charge him with.


The radical preacher, 54, is facing 11 terror charges in the US after finally being extradited from the UK last year.

Reading is fundamental.

Vodka Zombie: As an aside, you are also aware that Jews don't really use babies to make matzo, right?


Take the chip off your shoulder, reread my posts, and realize I'm not in the "All Muslims are evil!" camp.

And then buy a much smaller brush.

I can't even imagine having to wipe my butt with a hook.
I think his lawyers need to realize that if he had not been playing with dynamite in the first place, he wouldn't have lost his hand and his eye in an explosion and he would not have NEEDED a hook instead of a hand. Secondly, is he finding it hard to eat, wipe his ass or turn on the water taps because using his other hand is forbidden by some obscure Muslim law ?
But what REALLY interested me, was the sidebar where Jennifer Love Hewitt is telling everyone about her boobs being worth $Millions$ of dollars - something I can really appreciate.

over_and_done: It's not inherent to the religion.


Except for it being Sunnah, and Sunnah being part of the religion - sure.

To say there is/was a distinction between culture and religion for much of that "geographic region" is a silly thing to do.

I don't mean to sound superficial, but al Qaeda could really use a couple of image consultants on staff.  Why are these guys always so ugly?  There are plenty of good looking men in the Middle East, so there's no reason why these whackjobs have to look this revolting.

Dude, look at how most of them eat.  With their hands.  Go wipe your ass then eat with the same hand then.


I don't see why that would be a problem. But then, I actually wash my hands after I wipe my ass, i'm guessing you don't bother?

Hey, this is America!

Once you're suspected of Terr-rism, it's over.

No charges, evidence trial or conviction necessary.

Why is this guy not worm food already?

Why is this man alive?  Seriously.  You you think you are denying him pillow time with the 72 virgins he thinks he's going to get when he dies?  You must think he's going to get them, you are punishing him by not allowing him to proceed to his reward.  He can't possibly know anything of any intelligence value any more.  Take him to a nice comfortable cell, give him a vitamin hot of something that will put him to sleep forever, done.  Really, I'll do it for you if you don't have the courage, just give me the needle, it's no bother, really.

Maybe we should let him go, because, you know, land of the free and shiat.

Or why don't you take your terrorist-loving ass and move to Afghanistan, you goddamned appeaser.
