Dear Dr Sina:
I have been studying your sites since last night and don't seem to
be able to stop. I think you must be a God sent :)! A savior of some kind.
Thank you for all your efforts in exposing lies that have infiltrated our
lives for over 1000 years. Thank you for your enormous courage. I know I
could not have done what you are doing because I would be afraid.
I have one wish and that is to someday maybe sit down with you for lunch
and just chat. People like you are quite rare. I hope that you stay well
and keep up your great contributions to humankind.
26 Feb 2002
I hope you are doing well.
I'm really sorry to inform you that your site has been blocked in UAE! I
live there now and just recently the access to your site has been denied
by the Internet service provider! I can still visit your site though my
AOL account (different proxy) but others in this region can't. Well, I
just wanted you to be informedâ€¦
25 Feb 2002
I wanted to send the following message to the
merciful, comapssionate one but his address seems to have disappeared from
the FFI site:
We Muslims are oppressed in the world. North, south,
east, west, the infidel occupies lands that you have decreed should be
ruled and dominated by we your humble slaves. In these lands, that which
you have forbidden is
permitted! All we wish for are the rights you have bestowed on us to
divest the infidel of his ill-gotten gains as well as his life; to plant
our seed in the most beautiful unbelieving whores so that their wombs may
glory in the nurturing of true believers instead of the spawn of hell; to
sell the unbelievers whelps and less-attractive bitches in the slave
markets of Mecca; to turn his temples of iniquity into houses of the true
These rights you have granted us, oh Allah, but the
unbelieving dogs prevent us from exercising them. If we try, I swear they
will kill us. May you curse them! In the good old days, if the infidel did
not accede to our reasonable request to accept Islam or die, we would take
what was legally ours by force of arms. But that option is not
presently available. For some reason you have given the hordes of Satan
all the best weapons. In fact we have not won a major war against them for
centuries. And they still outnumber us. Even the filthy idolatrous Hindus
have managed to attain a population of nearly a billion, despite our best
efforts to exterminate them.
Some of your people have settled in the Muslim
territories known to their illegal occupants as Europe, Australia and
America. We would dearly love to drive the interlopers out of these lands
of ours as they drove us out of al-Andalus, but our numbers in these
places are still small. The infidels that infest these countries have
strange ideas. They believe that a Muslim man should only have sex with a
kafir woman if she has first given him her consent. Some of our young men
have actually been jailed for breaking this blasphemous rule! They even
have the insolence to give
we Muslims equal citizenship rights with THEM! Infidels equal to Muslims!
such an idea can only have come from Satan himself. Why, oh Allah, do you
allow them to heap such indignities upon us? What have we done to offend
Perhaps we have been allowing our daughters to stray
too far from the straight and narrow. I caught my daughter singing
recently, but only punished her with a beating. Perhaps I should have
killed her, like the good
Muslim father in England who righteously stabbed his whore of a
daughter twenty times after finding her in her bedroom with a man to whom
she was not married.
Or should we redouble our efforts to convert the
unbelievers by that ever-unsatisfactory method of peaceful persuasion?
Bizarrely, most of them find many of your divine ordinances - such as the
chopping off of hands, the stoning of adulterers, the beating of wives -
distasteful. We have endeavoured, therefore, to convince the unbelieving
dogs that your religion is one of peace, toleration, pluralism, universal
human rights, sexual equality and other such
hell-conceived notions of theirs. Frustratingly, only the most gullible or
stupid among them have fallen for this, and our efforts are being further
hampered by a filthy apostate called Ali Sina who has made it his life's
work to expose your holy dissimulation. Tell me where he lives, oh Lord,
and I will silence him for you.
Allah, send us a sign so that we know you have not forsaken us! It does
not need to be anything spectacular. The total annihilation of the United
States by an asteroid will do.
19 Feb 2002
Ali Sina, I never thought it would be possible for my
muslim to break out of the indoctrination that surrounds him/her and
rethink the doctrine with this much lucidity.
Congratulations on your courage!. I am glad for mankind
that there can be some people like you too. I will pray that you don't get
killed for your honesty. And i don't think your site is going to be
refuted, for to do that is to refute truth itself.
All i ask from islam is tolerance and respect for others
beliefs. I do not expect it to happen anytime soon however. -
Ali Sina responds:
Dear Asit, Thank you for your email
and kind words. I am happy to inform you that you are wrong. Muslims are
leaving Islam in big numbers. In fact millions of Iranians do no more
believe in Islam. Islam is a religion in fast demise and I assure you this
movement that has started is going to end the Islam.
Feb 17, 2002
Thank you for writing
I'm a little confused.
How do you know that absolute truth exists?
It sound like you are saying that something exists, but can't be
attained. If it can't be attained, how do you know it exists? It sound
like you are exercising your own faith or religion.
Did you get a chance to look up the word religion?
I am curious how you determine right
from wrong in your life?
How is it that you know there is
absolute truth and say no one can reach
Have you really thought it through?
To say that "the absolute truth
is unattainable IS an absolute statement and so you have come to what IS
absolute truth which is there is none. This is called reasoning in a
You say there is no attainable
absolute truth, so doesn't this prohibit you from having any opinion about
If I said, "there are no
automobiles in the world" and then went on to give my view on
automobile parts and how they work, what would you think?
If we see part of the truth, as you
say, how is it that you determined this?
I appreciate your heart-searching
Ali Sina Responds
This is really a simple concept. The
fact that the truth is one and absolute is self-evident. If there is
no truth, nothing can be said to be false. False is what contradicts the
truth. So truth must exist because falsehood exists.
It is also clear that truth must be
one. Can you have multitudes of truths that contradict each other? So
truth is one and absolute. This we know by deduction and by the use of a
little rational thinking. We do not have to know the entire truth to know
that it exists and it is one and absolute. If truth is relative then it is
some times false. If it is false then there must be a truth that it belies
so that truth must be the absolute truth.
Why I say that Truth (with capital
i.e. the absolute truth) is unattainable? Because we are limited beings
and no infinite can be contained in a finite container.
How do I know that we are
finite or limited? I
know that because we are constantly learning new things. If we knew the
absolute truth there was nothing that we did not know and there was
nothing to learn.
So these are facts deduced by
Truth is one.
Truth is absolute
We are limited
The limited can never grasp the
absolute and therefore
We can never aspire to know the whole
As for your question how I determine
right from wrong. I do that through various means depending what “right”
and “wrong” you are talking about. If it is the right and wrong of the
truth, I determine it through science and reason. If it is the moral right
or wrong, I determine it through the Golden Rule.
You asked if there is no attainable
absolute truth, so doesn't this prohibit you from having any opinion about
truth itself? The answer is No. You can always progress towards knowledge
and learn more and know that you will never come to a point where there is
nothing else to be learned. Truth is absolute and I am relative. I can
learn the truth my entire life and evolve but I can never reach the whole
By making the example of the “automobile”,
it is clear that I did not explain myself clearly enough or you
misunderstood me. Automobile is a limited thing. Of course you can
understand it completely and even improve it. But the Truth is an absolute
reality. It is not a thing but a reality. You can never understand the absolute reality but you can understand part of that reality and
Finally you asked: “If we see part
of the truth, as you say, how is it that you determined this?” I already
answered this question. But I answer it once again through a rhetoric
question. You can only hear the sounds that are transmitted with a certain
wavelength. How do you know that there are other sounds that you cannot
hear and that fall out site the gamma of the audible sounds?
Now my turn to ask you a question: Are
you asking me questions to understand my way of thinking or you are
judging me? It seems that with every question you ask you insert your own
conclusion and judgment. Is this the right way to conduct an academic
debate? Are we discussing the issues dispassionately or have we already
come to our conclusion before hearing the responses to our queries and
just are trying to mock each other?
Now what I say may or may not be
I never claimed to be the depository of the truth and therefore accept the
possibility that I may be wrong. This is in conformity with my philosophy
described above. I do not say it out of false modesty. The problem is that
religious people part from the position of know-it-all and reject any idea
before even hearing it completely if it does not fall into their mold of
what the truth must look like.
All wars are fought because one or
both sides have faith to be right. If they followed the philosophy of
doubt instead, if they were a little bit less certain of the truth, if
they agreed that the truth is unattainable and they too may be wrong,
there would be much less fight and the world would be a much more peaceful
place to live.
The only truth that I know is that the
Truth is not attainable, we all could be wrong. We all change our thinking
constantly. This means we were wrong before. So there is no need to fight
over what we would give up on our own. Now you may become a cynic and
claim this is a dogma. If that is a dogma, so be it.
Please continue your debate in out forum

A friend send the faithfreedom link to
my hubby (an ex-muslim). He claimed your site blewup his mind!. My husband
is very wise (beyond words). I knew this when I met him and he was only
twenty. Living with him is and has been a privilege. He has no time to
read your website, but be assured, he knows as much, if not more of what
you say. I did read many of the posts and comments, and I'm delighted to
find another soul down this path, if only for awhile. Some times it feels
like we are alone. I'm just happy you are around.
Thank you for your email. I was also
delighted to see you love so much your husband. It warmed even my heart.

Dear Mr. Sina,
I stumbled upon your website yesterday
and have not been able to pull myself from the computer ever since. I had
always felt that all religions were evil but Islam takes the cake.
It must be that Christianity and Hinduism were much older religions
and were formulated at a time when human beings had not developed the
level of sophistication to manipulate their fellow humans yet.
However, I feel that religion is a
very emotional issue for most people and for those living in Muslim
countries, is the only real positive thing in their lives.
Most of these people live lives of illiteracy and ignorance forced
upon them by a variety of reasons. It
is heart-wrenching to see interviews on television of gray bearded
scholars in Pakistan who had encouraged their teenage students to go die
and become martyrs in Afghanistan. The
wicked Khomeini did it in Iran and almost wiped out the conscience of an
What really disturbed me all along was
the support all of these characters had among educated Muslims here in
America. This is why Islamic
fundamentalism is so pernicious not only to those who are unlucky to be
living in a Muslim country, but also to those in the West.
I wish all Islamic countries make your
website a required reading for all students.
I know this is wishful thinking but it is sad to see these
societies like Pakistan and Egypt wallow in ignorance and be willingly
manipulated by wretched rulers on one hand, and the likes of Zawahiri and
bin Laden on the other.
Keep up the good work, my friend.
The nobility of your cause is very inspiring even for a crass
capitalist like me.

Dear exective members of FFI
You have no idea how happy I am about
the formation of this organisation and congratulate you from the bottom of
my heart. I hope with utmost sincerity for your success in your objectives
which are praiseworthy. You have my full support in your fight against
ignorance, supersitition, terror and tyrranny. Your cause is noble there
is no doubt about it. I request people at large to join in with you in
this great task so that together we could make our world a better place
for all of us. You are surely a bunch of courageous people and if you keep
your courage you will indeed overcome the obstacles in your way. I think
all freedom loving people through out the world are with you.
I love you all freedom lovers.
Wishing you all the best Mr M.F.Mughal

The fact is one does not really need
to read the Koran and hadith to get the low-down on Islam. One only needs
to read some history books, and to see how Muslims behave and Islamic
states operate in the world today.
Everybody can SEE that it is violent,
oppressive, intolerant and misogynistic. Everybody KNOWS that it was
spread overwhelmingly through military conquest and that unbelieving
peoples were sent ultimatums giving them the choice between Islam, tribute
or war. Indeed this undeniable fact has actually been admitted by one of
your Muslim opponents:
"Before any war the Prophet sent
invitations to convert to Islam and only as a last resort the Muslim army
used to take up arms..."
"Of course, in a war casualties
are unavoidable. The Muslim fought those wars to spread the message of
Islam..." (Would that all Muslims were as honest as Mona J who, like
a true Muslim, does not see anything wrong with imposing Islam on people
However many Muslims, particularly
western-resident ones, have been making great efforts over the years to
prove that black is white. A favourite trick of theirs has been to quote
lovey-dovey verses from the Koran knowing that people who have never read
it have to take what they say at face value. But when others use the same
methods to prove that the real Islam is that practiced by contemporary
Islamic States and Muslim terrorists they squeal "out of
Thank you again for blowing away the
veil of deception with which these liars have sought to obscure the true
nature of the religion of hate, war and death.
you so very much

I want to thank you so very much for
your web site
I probably will never know how close I
came to converting (reverting) to Islam but your site, which I had seen a
few months ago, but shelved has opened my eyes.
I guess I owe you more than I know and
all I can wish for you in my own small way is A happy and prosperous and a
Thanks for your site
Thank you Tony,
I am happy to read that. Now it is your turn to help others. The world
needs unity of humanity not a hatemongering cult.
Best of wishes.
Please accept my compliments, that if I
had the power and choice to nominate you for “Nobel Peace Prize”. I
would love to do it. I don’t know how I ran into your web site, but
whatever I read, it educated me more towards Islam. I hail from India from
a Punjabi family (Punjabis are known to resist Islamic expansion in India,
not just that but also inflict severe punishment on its followers).
You are right to say islam is not
religion but terrorism. There is absolutely nothing divine and spiritual
about islam. I am an atheist, but I will ask all those moslems, that which
god ever professed/preached to kill people of different faith, kill
innocent defenseless children, even fetuses, rape women, regardless of
their ages, even rape the boys. How sickening and low could one get? God
is perceived in every religion as a creator, not a destroyer. Yet islam
preaches destruction, savagery and cruelty. Compare islamic teachings with
Christianity, Buddhism and Jainism. Love, compassion and forgiveness.
Especially the last two have a doctrine of “absolutely non-violence to
any living creature”. This is why the most Indians are vegetarians.
I don’t think a person could
understand an intricate philosophy of a religion who could not even read
and write (Mohammed). Who ignorantly, claimed that “earth was flat”
where as a century before his birth astronomers in India, were telling
their masses that the earth was spherical (AryaBhatta). In fact there is
documented evidence that Braham Bhatt, a scientist of that time went to
Iraq to teach them the Math and Astronomy. This is just to prove the point
that how wise could Mohammed be without education. Yet he invented a
religion which was shoved thru the throats of people with help of a “cunning
sword” and temptation of infidel’s women and wealth.
Some of your readers are so naïve and
ignorant of the truth to point to atrocities committed on moslems in India
especially Kashmir. Your reader J. Rea and Abu-mohammed should know that
Islam in India did not arrive the way Buddhism did outside India. It
slaughtered the non-violent masses by millions, needless to say that they
were “Idolaters”. The people in Kashmir were once Brahmins, who were
given a choice to either become savage moslems or die.
The islamic monuments constantly remind
the history of yesterday. Nearly all of them were built on Hindu sacred
places. The proof: every islamic monument is built with stones with Hindu
scriptures on it in Sanskrit. These stones were taken from destroyed
temples at the same place, which were replaced, by mainly mosques. Here is
another wonder “the tajmahal” was built on a Shiva Temple, which is
still underneath this mausoleum and has been kept as a secret in present
times to avoid a mayhem. The Babri mosque was built with same scriptured
stones, which were taken from a destroyed temple. “Jim Rea” should
look in his native Pakistan, all those old islamic monuments will witness
the destruction of some great Hindu temple of that time (Turkey’s famous
Blue stone’s mosque was built on a destroyed church site) . Today the
sick people (moslems) talk of desecration of the Babri mosque, despite the
fact how it came in to being. Look what happened after the mosque
destruction, in pakistan, three of the oldest temples destroyed, riots
against Hindu minority and carnage. Among one of that sick killing, some
half a dozen Hindu children who were in temple “stoned to death” the
oldest child was 10 years and the youngest 3 years (BBC news). This event
took place some “thousand miles” away from the Babri mosque. Ask these
savage islamic lunatics, what those children had to do with the Babri
It appears, that it is okay to kill a
non-moslem even in his own home, but if he defends himself from invading
savage moslem, then islam is in danger, and atrocities are being committed
on moslems, and the world community becomes guilty for not doing anything.
India was, is and will be a Hindu land. Its boundaries were from present
day Afghanistan thru pakistan to the rest of India. There is absolutely
nothing wrong to claim our land back and ally with Armenia and Israel to
help them do the same.
India opened its doors to the oppressed
people of the globe since the dawn of its history with all the “religious
freedom”. We are still preserving some of the extinct cultures and
religions from outside India, where there own people gave in to islam. It
is perfectly justified to hate islam and punish what it has done to the
Hindus, Armenians and Jews. In India one of the mogul insane savage ruler
Orange Zip slaughtered half a million Hindus of Punjab in one day for not
accepting islam (recorded by savage moslem historian of that time). And
that savage justified it by saying that islam allows it. How different
statement could this be when compared with the present day coward
terrorist/fugitive “Osama-Bin-Laden” that islam justifies the killing
of innocent civilians?
Coming to the point, that moslems do not
get the opportunities in india is another pakistani propaganda. 3rd
richest man in this world is a moslem and lives in india, (Indian Bill
Gates). There were and are presidents, top ranking army generals,
scientists many other politicians and businessmen moslems. The Indian film
industry is another example. We do not discriminate but it is the mainly
the moslems who do. There case is that the body lives in India, but mind
and soul lives in Islamic world. India doesn’t need the islamic scholars
who are nothing but anti-nationals. But on the other hand if you accept
“India” as your own country with true allegiance, then there are
thousands of success stories of Indian moslems.
In pakistan the non-moslems (Hindus) do
not have the equal voting right as their counterpart, needles to say “ON
Compare India with moslem countries. In
50 years we have become the 4th largest economy in the world
with the objective to become number one. Our intellectuals are
revolutionizing in the high-tech and other sciences, whereas our
counterpart who embraced islam (the pakistanis) are graduating as Jihadis
and terrororists. No different than any other moslem nations.
I think that it is the islam at fault
and not the world around it, I strongly believe and agree with you. I have
a great respect for you Dr. Sina!!! Two reasons, a)… your truthfulness
and b)….We have a blood relationship, which is, both You and I belong to
the “”Aryan”” family of Indo-Iranians.
Feb 10, 2002
Dear Mr. Sina,
I have a problem and I need your
Last week, at school I gave a
speech titled "The root cause of the Sept 11th
attack". I explained to the whole class how the
teachings of the Qur'an and the Hadith inspire terrorism and
why those Muslims who oppose Bin Laden cannot be real
Muslims. Your excellent website and Secular Islam site
helped me a lot when preparing this speech.
However, I'm sorry
that I ended up discrediting your cause. Virtually everyone in
the class misconstrued my claim that Islam is a terrorist
religion. Even our teacher was so confused that she asked me:
"Are you telling us to regard all Muslims as our
enemies?" She seems to think that by claiming that
Muslim extremists are real Muslims I'm somehow denying the existence of
'moderate Muslims'. One of my classmates (presumably non-Muslim)
posted the following comment in the Secular Islam Discussion
"to the boy who has issues understanding that
one should not dispairage other people's religions, buddy u know who u r

islam is a religion that preaches respect to all living
things and peace. indeed this is not all that it is saying, and saying
that it is a peace loving religeon may be incorrect, however by picking up
on one point and calling the religion of islam a terrorist religeon you
are being narrow minded, disrespectful and ignorant. you can not accuse
people who call themselves muslims as being not muslims on the basis that
they have not read the religious books as religion is something far deeper
and personal than that :-)" http://secularislam.org/discussion4/_disc4/00000234.htm
How shall I respond to this kind of convoluted
gibberish? I wish I was as eloquent as you.
What you have encountered in your school is one of the
biggest obstacles that we face to get the message across that Islam is not
a religion but a very dangerous cult.
In the West, the great majority of people consider
respect for other people’s belief as the sign of civility. However this
is an oxymoron and a grave mistake. Beliefs do not have to be respected,
PEOPLE must be respected. Human rights must be respected not their faiths
Let us open this point and see exactly what is belief.
Belief is acceptance of something without evidence. This is the definition
of belief. Let me make an example. There are people who believe in
Bigfoot. They “believe” that Bigfoot exists because they have not seen
one and they accept the sketchy evidence that is available. Do you believe
in Bigfoot? What would happen if you see a bigfoot with your own eyes or
better yet their hiding place is discovered and a group of scientists
confirm that bigfoot exist. Would you still say that you believe in
Bigfoot? Not any more! Then you KNOW that Bigfoot exists.
Few centuries ago some people “believed” that the
Earth is flat and some “believed” that it is round. But today the
shape of the earth is no more a belief. Now we “know” that it is
This is the difference between belief and knowing. We
believe in things for which we have no evidence but we know things for
which there is ample evidence.
Now, what is faith? Faith is absolute belief in things
for which there is absolutely no evidence. Do beliefs really have to be
What if I believe that I am better than you and you are
inferior to me? Would you still respect my belief? What if I believe that
I have the right to subdue you, to impose on you my ways and to kill you
if you disagree with me? Do you still respect my beliefs?
One of the problems that we humans have is that we do
not read the history and do not draw lessons from it.
70 years ago Nazis was a triumphant ideology. Millions
of Germans believed in it. Unfortunately not enough people stood against
it. Most people in the free world taught that what the Germans believe is
their own business and their beliefs must be respected. The result was a
disaster of such magnitudes that the humanity had no parallels in its
annals. If 70 years ago, enough people had spoken against Nazism, perhaps
this evil doctrine would not have taken Germany by landslide and millions
of lives would not have been lost in vain.
Today Islam represents the same or even more danger to
the stability and peace of the world. We are in the threshold of a
catastrophe that would thwart the WWII. It is naïf to assume Islamic
terrorism is a phenomenon independent from Islam. Only a quick review of
Quran reveal the fact that the Islamic terrorists get their inspiration
and their instructions from that book. The fact that the Westerns and even
masses of Muslims are unwilling to read the Quran to find the truth on
their own and base their beliefs on pure hearsay and the tittle-tattle of
uninformed people and the lies of unscrupulous Islamic apologists is a sad
thing that is taking us into the precipice.
More lives would be lost. Thousands and perhaps millions
of innocent people would be sacrificed before these blindfolded “moralists”
open their eyes and see Islam for what it really is.
Would these upright Western moralists condemn the person
who speaks out against the dangerous cults that burgeon everywhere and
cause the death of many foolhardy people among their followers? Would
theses people condemn me if I write against the Heaven’s Gate cult, the
Supreme Truth cult, the Moonis cult or the cult of David Koresh?
Then why they are so shocked when I write against the cult of
Islam? Islam is far more dangerous than all those cults. Only the
brainwashed Muslims are ready willing and able to kill millions of people.
London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, New York, Toronto and many other cities,
where millions of people live, are the target of the Islamists. Muslims
have access to atomic bombs, chemical and biological weapons of mass
destruction. These weapons can be easily shipped to or even manufactured
in the cities that are going to be the targets.
After what happened in Sep. 11, only a fool can afford
not to read the Quran to see that the inspiration of that attack came from
that book. Only a fool would say beliefs that call for killing people must
be respected. Only a fool would believe that the attack of Sep 11 will not
be followed by more attacks much more catastrophic.
I salute you for not fearing the onslaught of ignorance
and for speaking out the truth and risking being labeled with derogatory
names. But know that ignorance is like darkness. It may look too dense but
it is also very vulnerable. Just as a beam of light can smash the darkest
night a word of truth can destroy the greatest of ignorance.
Your classmate wrote
“islam is a religion that preaches respect to all living things
and peace”. This is sheer ignorance of Islam. Does he know that Muhammad
ordered killing the non-Muslims and said the Jews and Christians must be
Jizyah a penalty tax for being unbelievers? Does he know that Muhammad in
his deathbed ordered all Jews and Christians be banished from Arabia and
Omar executed his master’s wish? Does he know that Muhammad raided the
quarters of the Jews in Medina and Kheibar, killed all their men, looted
their belongings, enslaved their young women and children and banished the
elderly and the sick? Does he know that Muhammad ordered his followers
fight and kill the unbelievers until the whole world submits to Islam and
he said the only acceptable religion is the religion of Allah?
Call upon your teacher and all those who want to be nice
and play the “civilized game” with Islam to face me and defend Islam
publicly. Should your teacher or anyone else prove that Islam is the
religion of peace and deserves respect I will remove my site from the
Internet. But if s/he refuses to debate with me s/he must stop teaching
falsehood and advocating for evil. I question the honor and the
intellectual integrity of that teacher who would tell his/her students to
respect a belief without bothering to investigate that belief first.
Soon the world will learn the truth of Islam. Soon you
and I will be vindicated. Soon Islam will be put to shame and eradicated.
But let us hope this happen before it destroys millions of lives. Let us
hope we do not commit the same mistake that we made when Nazism was
strengthening its foothold in Germany.
Not to speak out against evil is supporting it.
Feb 10, 2002
I've been taking this position for
sometime now, and it's not very popular even among the Christian ranks.
But when you analyze most of the major flashpoints worldwide right now,
it's impossible not to notice that Islam seems to be at the center of most
of them. I'm in favor of religions competing in the free market place of
ideas, regardless of my personal feelings about them. Islam does not wish
to do this, and the world cannot continue acting as if it does.
I admire your courage to take a stand,
particularly given the violent nature of your foes.
