As we have mentioned atheism and atheist, it's a chance to tell who my favorite atheists are, not for their beliefs which I do not agree with respectfully, but because they are free men who stand up for others, and live not only for themselves, but for humanity as a whole with no selfishness at all imo.

Naom Chomsky
Norman Finkelstein
and George Carlin  ;D

You can find some good reads about the middle east on this site, I recommend bookmarking it:
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said “Surah (chapter of) Hud and its sisters turned my hair gray"

Hud (11)

Whether atheism is a belief (or belief system) or a religion, there is a god that atheists worship imho that is one's self and ideas.

I disagree. Atheists believe there are no gods, plain and simple. I can't speak for other atheists but rest assured I don't worship myself nor anything else. My opinions are based on science and logic, or at last least my interpretation.

Atheism led communists to be inhumane because they hold the values of Marx, Lennon, Stalin, Mao, and others to be holy even if they claim otherwise.

There is no question that the system imposed in Stalinist Russia, Maoist China and today's North Korea have all the characteristics of a religion. The leaders of these countries created a personality cult which, for all intents and purposes, raised them to the level of living gods. The system comes complete with a set of rules and values. It's even monotheistic just like Islam, Christianity and Judaism.

Marx is a different story. He believed organized religion was complicit which those who were oppressing the workers by promising them heaven if they behaved themselves. That's why he called religion the "Opium of the People". Consequently, atheism is the norm (no god, no complicity).

John Lennon was a man of peace who simply didn't believe in religion, or maybe that religion has a negative influence for humanity.

I believe as many other Muslims do that not all atheists are evil, Allah says in the Quran: "They aren't alike" as to Jews & Christians and the same goes for all other faiths including atheists & Muslims who are not an exception as evil exists in humanity in general.

This is great! When I was a child in Catholic school, we were taught atheists were bad people or at the very least misguided. They were clearly on the enemies list. I believe it's illegal to openly be an atheist in the KSA and Iran.

Although I'm openly against nudity.

You are within your rights to hold this or any opinion. In my case it's not so much that burkinis offend me, I just think it's ridiculous for women to have to wear these disgusting rags because their religions says so. One thing is for sure -- neither one of us has the right to impose our beliefs on these women, no matter how much we disagree.

I say this even though I was bullied on a daily basis, made fun of my accent, told to go back to my country many many times.
As to the slogan "Freedom & Justice for all" I believe in that as a principle that all humanity should adopt, not the American way of implementation though, being an evil imperialist superpower that bullies other nations & imposes tyrants upon them in the disguise of "policeman of the world".

Bullies exist everywhere and they always will. I know, I too was bullied and made fun of in school because I stutter when I speak. Fortunately as you yourself state, not everyone is like that. You could have told them this:

You: Do you speak Arabic?
Response: No
You: Then you should be ashamed of yourself for speaking just one language. How ignorant!

And of course I fervently disagree with this country's imperialist policies. Like all empires, it too will eventually die off. And of course I despise this moron who is now the president. Hopefully the new congress will draft a bill of impeachment to remove him from power.

It must be really sad to be an immigrant, both here and in Europe. First you have these evil people smugglers who sell them on the idea that the streets of America and Europe are paved with gold. Then they steal their life savings. After that these people end up in an abominable situation, being hated and rejected with everyone and with no place to go. I often believe people smugglers should be hanged without trial.

And maybe if I come to San Antonio one day, I'll watch a Spurs game with you if you attend basketball games.

I'd love that! Maybe one day it'll happen. If you want I'll take you to one of the mosques I mentioned so you can pray in peace.
