Random Crazy Weirdo Thoughts

Justice is Blind. Justice halls painted green. Does he have the right to do something?
From the beginning of the previous century, the terms right and wrong, good and evil, had a lot of troubles surviving, these terms needed some kind of relation to something, you can say this thing is right for some kind of culture or religion or any kind of ideology.
In the end they depended on power, the one who has power, is the one who has the right. Like did the US had the right to invade Iraq? Well depending on our culture, maybe not, but did that matter, they invaded it anyway, and who could've stopped them, depending on there power, yes they had the right.
And now the question that is lately so much asked, did this Danish newspaper had the right to publish these cartoons? Till now nothing is clear, as the forces are not really visible. And does freedom of speech allows them to do that? well if we can get a couple of years before, when Bin Laden destroyed the Buddha's statues, did he had the right to do so? Well it appears that he had, nobody had complained. Like Buddhism is not a religion or something, and he did not discriminate them. Every day in our life a lot of people discriminates Buddhas, Hindus, Maharishis ..., and you know that is not discrimination, as those people has no power, and depending on our culture they are wrong, and they are stupid, and they are just a few unbelievers, cause they have gods other than ours, and we also swear at Jews, even in the fact that it is forbidden in Islam, but we consider them as enemies of god, even they believe in god, and we also consider them to hate Muslims, forgetting about some Jews who supported us and our case (Like Felicia Langer), but who cares, they don't complain about it here.
I remember before a couple of years, I was watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien on NBC, where I don't really remember whom he was talking to (I guess it was Chris Rock), who said that this is the end of time, implying somethings about the current time (I remember that he said that the best rapper is white, the best Golf player is Black, France is accusing US to be arrogant ... etc.), well I guess it's really the end of time, US is teaching Europeans how to respect religions, Britten is accusing the rest of Europe with being Racist (which the Britons were always not ?!), the Arabs are teaching Europeans the freedom of speech, And Syria is the first country to take her ambassadors out of Denmark between the Arabs based on a religious issue, Man it's really the end of time.
And at the end, what does Muslims really want from all of this Danish thing? aren't we having enough troubles with the rest of the world (Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Iran)? do we need a new one? and what does the other European journals (who republished the cartoons) are up to? and how is it going to end? are we going to forget as usual? or it's going for eternity?
I guess everything is going crazy around here. This planet is lacking a lot of logic, I guess everybody is going crazy (including me). (Eza janno rab3ak 3aglak ma benfa3ak, If your people are gone crazy, your mind is not of good use for you!).

I agree with you Man, Good and Bad, Right and Wrong on the idological,ethical level has gone away in the begining of the 20th Century but I don't why we are still considering it as an issue in the arab world,
I just want to tell them, that faith is not on the earth, and really I don't know if there is any in the sky :D

It's always hard to say who's right or wrong on verious issues. But as a guideline the United Nations Agreements on Human Rights is pretty good. One of the most imoprtant rights is the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion. Read it here
It also harmonizes with every major religion on earth.
And did the US have a right to invade Iraq; well, 49% of all Americans and most of the rest of the world don't think so.

hey man, truth is clear in your words, but what everyone really do is choosing thier side of the fight, especially when there is no absolute right or wrong, i think what really matters not being logical, but picking your side, just let your feelings take you as far as it goes.

with all my love alloosh :)

Thanks for replying on my post.
Aboud I don't think this issue is related to faith, more I guess it's related to where this thing is going to.
Thomas the point is even if we are on the right side, does it matter, yes people made a lot of rules, but these rules don't apply on everybody, did US being wrong stopped the invation on Iraq.
Nabool, it's been a long time man, this world is not a black and white, also we, and the rule if you are not with me you are against me doesn't work, you may have another side to some issue, you are not with both of the sides, you have your own.
And Mr./Ms. Anonymous thanks I really appreciate it.
Once again thank you all for replying.
