    I don't play COD anyways.

    :eek:

    This is however a start to a very downward spiralling situation, and NO I do not agree with it.

    As a Catholic I don't like the fact the Jews had the Pagan Romans murder my "saviour" but here we are. 2000 years later...

    Everyone should smoke some grass and get nekkid! Thats what the world needs; GLOBAL ORGY :rockout:

    Believe it or not, SOME things cannot be reasoned with words, and anyone who thinks otherwise is not realistic at all. I don't care if your Gandhi, EVERYONE has a tipping point, only in his case, he decided to put himself in harms way.

    Secondly, they never asked to be put "in the kitchen". If people wanna get on different sides of a fence and decide to insult each others' ideas and beliefs, that's fine. Just don't go making it public by plastering a flyer on a wall and then feel bad once someone recognized what it said/meant. It's not cool. The freedom of speech argument in this instance is just stupid. Unless it's done to me, I absolutely NEVER use my freedom of speech to make someone or a group of people feel bad. That's just not right.

    Americans tried that in 1967. Only thing that came out of it was incurable herpes.

    ahh I've cancel my sleep :D..

    sorry man, you should dig more about who is taliban, I'm really limited how to say all about it in english, that's is very long story, shortly they are a not a muslim as they should and totaly there is no taliban culture or lecture in our Quran, and IMO that is only kind of stupid government rule.

    I'm sorry again, I don't need wiki to understand word "Allah" :), you know it I guess, what I mean about one religion, this is so need much time for me to explain about it and why I say one religion.

    but simply in my concept, Allah is God, but God is not Allah. :)..

    BTT, maybe in this case COD is one of the famous FPS game around the world and so many people play it, and maybe some of them are muslim, and for that to avoid bad effect and I hope to respect each other Activison give that act. Just in this game what I say..no other thing :)

    I got the jist of what you mean. Basically the taliban aren't real muslims, they are extremists who further their political agenda by pretending to be the best muslims. The book they have is probably misinterpreted (by design), so they could recruit younger people who don't know any better.

    I agree, this should def go to GN

    what am i reading? what happened to this thread? why is this even a pole? this is inciting a religious argument. A pole was put up on whether or not removing a religious insult (in some religions) was ok?

    who cares? i played MW2 for a long time both on the Pc and the PS3 and i never even noticed it i guess i was busy doing other things then checking out the bathroom. that said what does it matter if its taken out? are you going to be sad that you cant hear it?

    super mods?

    Request that a mod formally shuts this anti-Islamic thread down.

    It's about a games company pulling content because it offended someone.

    Islam has nothing to do with this. No more than the time the guy that murdered doctors who carried out abortions was about christianity.

    Anyway, it's COD ffs. POS anyway.

    this is what we scare, the false paradigm about the muslims.

    ah man, I'm not saying I'm a very good muslim but AFAIK there is no Islamization around the world, only the media blew it some crispy news with some seasoning on it, you know.

    I guess we must stay on the topic only about the game, and why that words need to remove, that's what I'm trying to share.

    You do realize that the a great deal of Muslims are uneducated simple minded people ? I say that as a Muslim, and as someone living in one of earth hell holes. And by education I don't just mean academic education. Most of us Muslims don't know the most fundamental parts of our religion.
    I realize you're post is targeting people not religion, but I had to make this fact clear.

    The part where you speak about the change of time, it's actually one of the biggest issues with how we practice our religion today. Many scientists (literal translation, you know them better as Clergy men, but I kinda loved the irony in the literal translation. Point to be noted though, we do consider them to be men of science) argue that some (not all) of the lesser fundamental practices and teachings are era-bound (Though not in the exact argument). The problem relies with defining the changes that should be applied. A very grieve matter in Islam that is.



    I would though. Two reasons:
    A- Islam forbids insulting other religions.
    B- Standing against what is wrong is one of our tasks.

    Of course, Wisdom and Common sense also apply here, I wouldn't go staging riots, but if it was an argument with -say- a friend or a colleague, or even with a fellow Muslim online, I'd definitely stand for what's right.


    Reminds me of the Resident Evil 5 incident, when Quran was allegedly found thrown on the floor .
    Capcom stated that the book was NOT an imitation of Quran. But then again, it's all a western conspiracy against Islam, or at least that's what many Muslims think. Hell, no one even cared to remember that Capcom is Japanese :banghead:


    You may have noticed that it is ignorant. But sadly, the majority out there doesn't.
    Will save you a 757 and accept the apology ;)


    Oi! Don't group us all in the same category! I'm a Muslim and I'm two thirds a pacifist (outside Video games, that is)



    :rolleyes:

    you know there is always going to be someone who will be offended by something so fuck em. There is a reason why most of those countries dont have things others do. So If the Muslims that are in the 1st world countries are crying about it, well dont buy the games then.

    2 Persons interviewed on the street, the first doesn't mind his face being shown, the other does. Both are well within there freedom of choice, no ?

    Of course, the second fella can always refuse to be interviewed all together. In this case, the interviewer will have to remove him completely from the aired footage. After which the interviewed has no right what so ever to complain.

    Do pardon the poor example :eek:

    at a Restaurant up north news were trying to interview service members I turned down the interview because i didnt want to be disturbed while I was eating. Also most media love to twist peoples words, or say they say this organization endorsed this person speaking their mind.

    For Service members being interviewed the news has to go through Public Relations Department of the Military.

    AFAIK this is not about one or a country problem, this is found by one of players and maybe a big fans of COD, and maybe they contact the activison and they ask activison whether could they remove that words.

    but you know since the mw release , the story begin in somewhere middle east and I believe that's in muslim country, but no complain about that, BF 3 too... but because in this case there is name of God, maybe some fans feel little bit annoyed.. just maybe, anyway this is just a game buddy, we must know why activision do that and share each other what is the possible reason for that.

    ahh yeah in my country, one of the biggest muslim country if may I say .. actually the government and the people don't really care about this issues, because this is not very essential problem :) and perhaps they don't really know at all :D

    there is no news about it on our national television, instead I've found it in local game forum. but notting really big reaction about it.

    In all, I'm really appreciate the move from activision, they were really care with their fans.

    @Shihabyooo : where are you comefrom man :) ?
