Topic: 2x03

Argh, they had to make a filler episode before Saul could share the news. tongue OK episode overall, but the scene in the woods wasn't IMO as serious as they planned. I almost laughed when Brody killed the dude so he wouldn't interrupt his phone conversation. wink

Edit: I forgot to comment how awesomely directed and played Carrie's scene was. smile She reeeally deserves another Emmy. smile

Indeed. This was probably the greatest surprise for me as well.

Re: 2x03

Yeah, but since letting the CIA see the vid could end the show the writers have to come up with some way to destroy or discredit the vid. I hope that doesn't mean getting rid of  Saul (Mandy Patinkin, who generally does not stay more than two seasons in a show, even it it's a big hit.)

Re: 2x03

by the way, i'm a muslim and what Brody say in the prayers is not accurate.  big_smile

Also, killing innocent people/civilians is forbidden as per islamic military jurisprudence.

Re: 2x03

Re: 2x03

Yeah, mosque politics can get brutal when the hard-core are involved. Back in 1993, when the first attempt was made to destroy the World Trade Center in NYC, there was a piece in the newspapers the week before about a dispute over who should run a mosque in Brooklyn. Turned out that one of the moderate Mosque leaders there was murdered by the radicals. The leader of the radicals was an Egyptian imam who had fled his homeland because of his radical ways and is now serving life in a US prison for urging his followers to bomb the World Trade Center.

it's not really about mosques. I've never been to a mosque that has extremists and i've been in more than a few in north africa and Europe.

Those people are fringe and they usually live in seclusion.

Also, i really don't like the term "moderate" as it entails that somehow non-violent muslims (which is the overwhelming majority) are not practicing islam "enough" and that's why i hate the word "fundamentalist" even more which means that those extremists are the ones sticking to the fundamentals of the religion, while in reality, they're pretty far from them.

Read this if you want more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_mi … of_warfare for ethics of warfare.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_mi … lian_areas about civilians. (these rules were present and enforced since the 7th century, when islam emerged)

I just think it's important to dispell the stereotypes and come together towards understanding and civil co-existance.
