    Some amazing pictures, very beautiful scenery. I heard somewhere in the news that the Swat valley was a major tourist attraction once. To bad for Pakistani people that the Islamic terrorists extremist have moved in the area and is no longer save for tourists to visit that part of the country.

    That's copyright infringement, ofcourse Macdonalds, paypals and other big companies won't touch Pakistan with a 1000 mile long bargepole so you get away with it. But still I don't understand what's there to be proud about in this?

    Not one woman in the photo, why? Phyza IMO you should show your activism in the country to fight for women rights rather than defending it.

    And all those beautiful photos of north Pakistan are from the part of Kashmir which is under illegal occupation by pakistan. Keep it beautiful till we take it back. The beauty of the part of Kashmir with India is already destroyed by the terrorists sent by Pakistan, there's something to be ashamed of.
    You want to see more beautiful pictures of terrorist camps north Pakistan? Here you go:

    The Bombay attacks reportedly killed the people who had uncovered links between the terrorists and elements of the Indian military.

    "The Mumbai Anti Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare and other officers of the Anti Terrorism Squad have been killed.

    "These were the same people who were investigating the Malegaon Blasts – in which Praggya Singh, an (Indian) army officer and several other noted personalities of the (right-wing 'fascist') BJP-RSS-Bajrang Dal-VHP were arrested."

    And Remember Gujarat Massacre Orchestrated by High Ranking Officials who are members of the RSS Terrorist Group including Modi? Do I show you half burned pictures of muslim Kids from the incident? And Remember The Banned Movie in india "The Final Solution" which isn't made by a Muslim, reveals the face of Extremist Hindu Politians from BJP & Shiv Sena.

    Check Yourself, and they are from Indian Newspaper:
    Ramesh Dave VHP's point man who planned attacks on Muslims in Kalupur and Dariyapur

    http://www.tehelka.com/story_main35.asp?filename=Ne031107spycam_videos.asp

    Enough of childish gimmies-abusing here does not help anyone…and neither this is some sort of competition of blames. Helvetii, I can show you hundreds of screenshot like that & you will bite your fingers that whats going on behind the scene. You guys can never learn.

    I'd difficult to think positively of a nation which is currently most famous for:
    • Trying to blow up Times Square
    • Trying to block free speech on the Internet
    • Murdering each other during church services

    Perhaps the PR blitz should be put on hold until the bad acting is under control.

    You compare red rep to what, the penalty in Pakistan for blasphemy? ;0

    By the way, something interesting a Muslim friend has shown me the other day:
    Islam and most Christian churches: Controlled by the same people?
    [​IMG]

    As for the issue you raised, we’d like to state that “the crescent moon and star symbol actually pre-dates Islam by several thousand years. Information on the origins of the symbol are difficult to ascertain, but most sources agree that these ancient celestial symbols were in use by the peoples of Central Asia and Siberia in their worship of sun, moon, and sky gods. There are also reports that the crescent moon and star were used to represent the Carthaginian goddess Tanit or the Greek goddess Diana.

    The city of Byzantium (later known as Constantinople and Istanbul) adopted the crescent moon symbol. According to some reports, they chose it in honor of the goddess Diana. Others indicate that it dates back to a battle in which the Romans defeated the Goths on the first day of a lunar month. In any event, the crescent moon was featured on the city’s flag even before the birth of Christ.

    The early Muslim community did not really have a symbol. During the time of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) Islamic armies and caravans flew simple solid-colored flags (generally black, green, or white) for identification purposes. In later generations, the Muslim leaders continued to use a simple black, white, or green flag with no markings, writing, or symbolism on it.

    It wasn’t until the Ottoman Empire that the crescent moon and star became affiliated with the Muslim world. When the Turks conquered Constantinople (Istanbul) in 1453, they adopted the city’s existing flag and symbol. Legend holds that the founder of the Ottoman Empire, Othman, had a dream in which the crescent moon stretched from one end of the earth to the other. Taking this as a good omen, he chose to keep the crescent and make it the symbol of his dynasty. There is speculation that the five points on the star represent the five daily prayers, but this is pure conjecture. The five points were not standard on the Ottoman flags, and it is also not standard on flags used in the Muslim world today.

    For hundreds of years, the Ottoman Empire ruled over the Muslim world. After centuries of battle with Christian Europe, it is understandable how the symbols of this empire became linked in people’s minds with the faith of Islam as a whole.

    Based on this history, many Muslims reject using the crescent moon as a symbol of Islam. The faith of Islam has historically adopted no symbol, and many refuse to accept what is essentially an ancient pagan icon.”

    Excerpted, with slight modifications, from:

    http://islam.about.com/library/weekly/aa060401b.htm

    The American Muslim scholar, Sheik Yusuf Estes, Director of islamtomorrow.com, and National Chaplain WAMY, adds:

    “The symbol of Islam IS NOT the crescent moon and the star, but it was used by the last Islamic Dynasty, the Ottoman’s. The Ottoman Empire deemed it appropriate to use the star and crescent as their symbols, but not the symbols of Islam. I repeat, the star and the crescent moon are not a part of the religion of Islam. Because Islam is so strict on the concept of no other gods with Allah; and no images of any kind; it is a mistake to consider that Islam authorized the general use of such things. Additionally, Islam forbids the images (statues) of any kinds of humans, animals or any of Allah’s creations, so how about using a symbol for Islam?”
