    @alonzobistro69 ; Bill Maher is certainly an honorable man and i agree with him in a lot of answers/opinions about political/religious questions, but simply allege Fun-Da-Mental "writing music for terrorist" is really too stupid, especially when you look into his (Zach216) library, where you can found many bands, who have violence against society in their lyrics. Don't they make "music for terrorists" as well??? Simplify your thoughts in this fuckin american (god bless america, coca cola, monsanto and mcdonalds) way of life is also no solution, because the lost/poor people in the third, second and first world have to pay for this decadent lifestyle, and i neither need an TV carrierist nor an religious fanatic to explore this facts. Who is now "the man who lost opportunity to mouth of"? Whatever, thanks for your feedback.

    @benberzerc : You just qualified for "the man who lost an opportunity to mouth off" ! Thinking of Bill Maher and is brilliant documentary "Religulous" as a sort of brainwash Tv is just showing your ignorance ! And as much as I like Fun>Da>Mental music, Aki Nawaz turned into a total asshat regarding the religious question !..

    @ Zach216 ; You seem to be a typical US american citizen, who just parrot, what your TV tells you about how the world goes round. Blow up your brain untill it becomes the size of a typical monsanto pea XD

    Aki Nawaz sounds like a complete moron in Religulous, it's so funny to hear jackasses like him try to keep up Bill Maher. Just trying to be controversial by writing music for terrorists, the stuff you do means you ARE part of the problem, not solution you tool

    All is War is not included under the labums, and it's one of their best. That's criminal.

    Aki is one of our heroes. There would be less war with more personalities like him.
