I guess discrimination is not outlawed in every country,
what ever happened to multi-culturalism?

I have never seen a church with catholic and non-catholic entrances, everyone is allowed in...
Some Muslims complain (or worse) about the west, but they are just as bad...

(sorry, I had to comment on the road sign, back on topic)

Nice to see the centre tower has cleared the rest of the structure, this is one massive building.
Does it have more space than the largest (not tallest) building in the world, the Pentagon?

I may be wrong, but I remember that while Beijing Olympics was being held, not everybody could enter the city, reason: it becomes difficult to manage such a big number of people in the city. Makkah is in such a situation throughout the year as Muslims from all around the globe visit Makkah. To manage the visitors, they have to put such restrictions. Other than Makkah and Madina, I believe, rest of the country is open for all. As I said earlier, I may be wrong, but thats what I think very logical.

A question popped into my head just now--if islamic zeal and it's holy war are all about converting all the non believers then why make it so difficult for a person who might be investigating the religion to visit macca?

I have no idea why you people insist on going off topic and posting something that has already been discussed a million times in the same thread. Seriously, it gets annoying...

I'm a Muslim and believe it or not when I pass Mecca, I take the non Muslim road. You have no idea how congested it gets during hajj or omra season. There's a reason for everything... even the non-Muslim road in Mecca.

Discrimination is outlawed in Saudi Arabia. It's also outlawed in Islam....

Now can we please get back on topic? And if you still feel like bringing this topic back up, you can go back a few pages and I'm pretty sure someone has posted your thoughts before.

Dream on, or read the koran, the so-called 'word of god'...


(e.g. [Qur'an 4:56]: Surely, those who disbelieve in our revelations, we will condemn them to the hellfire. Whenever their skins are burnt, we will give them new skins. Thus, they will suffer continuously. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise. source: http://www.submission.org/)

How is that in any way related to discrimination?

121- The Messenger of Allah p.b.u.h. said during the Farewell pilgrimage: O Mankind! All of you belong to Adam, and Adam is from dust; there is no preference for an Arab over a non-Arab; neither is there any preference of a non-Arab over an Arab except through piety. (Reported by Muslim)

And I've read the koran more times than you ever will. Don't try to use it against me. It's disrespectful. You don't have to agree with me, but show me some decency. Making fun of the koran by calling it "so-called word of god" just shows how belligerent you are. I'm sorry if I crossed any lines and I apologize if I did, but it truly pains me to see people posting such absurd comments with no regard to some of the people's feelings on the forum. That is by definition, true discrimination.

I apologize again for going off topic even though I was suggesting we get back on it.

Noone who complained about the sign would ever go to Mekkah even if it was allowed. I would go, so this affect me, but i don`t complain about it. Maybe it will be allowed in the future.

I would like to see the Abraj A-Bait in person. Maybe someday....
