Arabic[edit]

Are you a former Muslim by chance? More former Muslims is always great, especially Arabic speakers :D Lord Aeonian (talk) 19:44, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

This probably didn't come to your mind, but in some parts of the world you can get killed for calling yourself a former Muslim, so don't be too surprised if someone declines to answer that question. --Ymir (talk) 19:50, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
I happen to live in the one of those areas friend :) Lord Aeonian (talk) 20:01, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
I don't know if I can consider myself a "former" Muslim because I probably was never one to begin with, and it wasn't for lack of trying, either. I'm irreligious, if that's what you were wondering, and I am an Arabic speaker.--Nay1989 (talk) 06:18, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
Ah ok. I was pretty devout for a while. One day I said "my iman is strong enough to resist Shaytaan's nonsense" and looked at the arguments against religion, confident Islam would prevail. Well, here I am :P Lord Aeonian (talk) 19:19, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

About Bahrain[edit]

Interesting. You're irreligious, but could I assume that you disagree with Sunni rule over Bahrain? The majority of Bahrainis are Shia. Where are you living? Are you allowed to say what you think about the events of 2011, a few years ago? Pbfreespace3 (talk) 03:38, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

I disagree with any kind of rule that involves giving privilege to one sect or religion over the other, so yes, I disagree with Sunni rule, but I disagree with Shi'ite rule if it will undermine the Sunni populace. I certainly oppose any kind of theocratic rule, as well. I live in the United States, but before that, I lived between Saudi and Bahrain. The events of 2011 were a ticking time bomb that happened to explode. It wasn't a protest that came from absolutely nowhere. There were issues from way back in the 60s and 70s, and then when the Islamic Republic emerged, and Arab Shi'ites demanded their rights, they were immediately quashed by their government using Iran as an excuse. Many are afraid that states similar to Iran would emerge in the Gulf. I do, too. But even those protesting who are sympathetic to Iran are a minority, and the bulk of the protests weren't driven by Iran as many were trying to have people believe. Even the Bahraini-government sponsored report following the events cleared Iran, yet they and the Saudis have arrested, executed and stripped people of their citizenship under false charges of terrorism and taking directions from Iran. I don't buy the Iran story one bit. While I'm certain Iran has ambitions in the area, they're not the ones stirring the majority of dissenters. Besides, they're using Gulf autocracy to their advantage, so the ARab rulers are effectively shooting themselves in the foor. There were similar events in Bahrain in the mid-90s, but they were quashed. Then they worsened things by giving non-Bahraini Sunnis citizenship in an attempt to conduct a demographic change. This all, of course, is exacerbated by the Americans, the Brits, the French, the Germans, etc., not only failing to condemn them with harsh language, but they're continuing to sell them arms, too, which are used on the dissenting populace in a continuation of the fucked-up Arab Gulf circle of "life."
President Obama was correct when he said, "I think the biggest threats that [Arab Gulf countries] face may not be coming from Iran invading. It’s going to be from dissatisfaction inside their own countries" during an interview with Thomas Friedman. --Nay1989 (talk) 22:03, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
