Re: Bhoras faiz in Amman (Mutah) set on fire

Shapur, Don't put all your eggs in conspiracy basket. Before accusing others of being gullible who is to say that you've not swallowed down the counter-conspiracy conspiracy of the Wahabis. Once you set out on the path of conspiracy it soon turns slippery and you end up in a bog of escapism. Arguab...
