A complete localization effort is taking shape with a large percentage of the work already completed. Mozilla's homepage has also been fully translated to Arabic.

"We invite you to visit and engage us in this work and effort. We applaud and appreciate all those that have helped in the past along with those still looking to improve Mozilla's Arabic support further (do please vote for the bugs listed in the URL above in order to get the last remaining few critical bugs fixed)."

#1 ? religious expressions

I was surprised to see that the first terms in the "news" are religious terms.

I would like to say to the arabic site manager that we have enough sh*t around on religion. All the problems in the middle east comes from religion. All the major massacres in the history of man kind were in the name of religion and nothing has changed.

If the Mozilla Foundation decides to adopt certain religion for each of the projects, please let us know.

This stinks. As if we do not have enough from GW here in the US. Now more sh*t comes from the ME on religion. Please remove these terms from that website.

Thank you

I understand your sentiment, but let's not get carried away here. Your blind anger sounds almost religious to me. ;)

You can also be an atheistic extremist. Not only almost as bad as being a blind faith puppet, but probably also rendering the reasons you are against religion invalid.

That said, you probably better start closer to home. Wasn't protecting against and dealing with berserk government the main reason for your weapon laws?...

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

I am appalled at the anti-religious indecencies that PC1 chooses to share on this forum. I did not see the religous words to which he refers. Was he looking too hard for a reason to protest?

M. PC1, we do not live in a world where atheism is the only acceptable religion.
