    Yes and this does what to prove "Muslims are the most violent religious zealots on the planet"?



    Yawn.

    You're a walking straw man.

    If you're going to go around spewing "liberals!" and "religion of peace" and contribute nothing intelligent, please don't waste our time.

    In that way.

    Is it really necessary to go through the litany of Islamic crimes against humanity over the past few decades? If you have no awareness if history, what are you doing on these boards?
    More nonsense. Cherry picking the "Islamic crimes against humanity" still do not show that "Muslims are the most violent religious zealots on the planet".

    You're out of your league here Grant. Go back to the ME threads.

    spewing liberals? Please don't waist our time? Who is our, do you represent everyone on this forum? I think maybe you should speak for yourself.

    Dont know why this is such a crazy and outlandish thing. Some daddy here in THIS country beheaded his own daughter to save her honor because she was dating the wrong guy.

    The "state" no...but a whole lot of people including clerical leaders believe it is the 'right' thing to do (and those clerical leaders tend to be the ones sanctioning things like the OP in fundamentalist states). Where? New York (wife) Texas (twin daughters), Georgia, Canada, lots of others. All in the name of love.

    Bah, I think y'all are being too hard on the Saudis. They're not as backward as some of you seem to think. I mean, they understood that the woman was actually defrauding her clients and practicing medicine without a license. Unfortunately, those laws don't carry a death penalty, so they charged her with one that did.

    You see? It was all perfectly logical.
