Ireland the most Islamic country in the world

I haven't been on this site for a long time but I though this might be of interest to poster.
It seems that Ireland is the closest country in the world to what the ideal Islamic state should be.

I'm not sure where that leaves most of the Middle East and so-called Islamic countries. None of them make it into the top 50. Israel get into the top 25.

Interesting!
It's a good way to show an open minded attitude about other countries and that your religion has universal values.
But I'm really surprised that he puts Israel of all country at 25!

Not sure where the surprise is actually. Muslims in Israel have complete freedom to live their lives according to their beliefs and the state has an official apparatus that caters to each of the 3 religions' needs.

A Muslim wishing to do so can live in Israel almost entirely according to Sharia law (minus the killing of the infidels and the likes)

That's why Israel is better than any of its neighbours. I say better because it doesn't need to be qualified; it's freer, fairer and more just. By any measure Israel is better than any country that neighbours it. It's not perfect but what country is?

If the choice is religion or alcohol the decision is easy.
I work with two Muslim guys and they both drink. They’ve “gone native”. It’s very hard to hate someone you’ve got pissed with.

I wouldn't mind being Caliph of Ireland..

know your Daddy's a sultan
A nomad known to all
With fifty girls to attend him, they all send him
Jump at his beck and call

But you won't need no harem, honey
When I'm by your side
And you won't need no camel, no no
When I take you for a ride


Maria Muldair!

First, great OP John. I'm Irish Catholic myself and I found the poll to be interesting. Ireland the most Islamic country in the world , boy I wonder what Father John Murphy is thinking! lol

Middle Eastern/North African women are the best looking in the world IMHO. I once meant an Egyptian girl at my local casino, twas an excellent time. We smoked some hash in her hotel room, and had a few beers. She was also a Muslim btw.

I would love to visit both Jordan and Israel someday.

Jordan is Muslim majority, and it also allows for religious freedom. Jordan is of course one of the most hospitable countries in the world, Jordan has taken in many Palestinian and Syrian refugees over the years.

In Saudi Arabia, the youngsters(and I'm sure some adults) enjoy playing video games, drinking, and smoking hash. They just do it w/o the gov knowing, and I have been told if folks get caught with a little hash in SA, then they get a slap on the wrist. Now being caught in SA with say, a few pounds of the finest Colombian coke, might get ya in a bit more trouble mate.

Alawites too.
Though you might view them as Christians with Muslim influence rather then the opposite
