    Not as far as I know, nor your statement either. But it's also not up to me to defend the statements of other posters.

    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Oh...I could post dozens of Youtube videos showing violent diatribes by American Muslims...but you would just poo poo them as not being representative of ALL...to which I would agree. I could post videos of Muslim terror training camps in America, but again...you would just dismiss them as the fringe and not ALL Muslims to which again, I would AGREE. I could point out the leaders and membership of the Nation of Islam and pose a query as to your thoughts on their allegiance. Like Muslims worldwide, the MAJORITY are peaceful...but its that distinct minority that think it is glorious to rape and behead 12 year old schoolgirls in India or rape and torture to death families in Tibet that always cause the problem.

    And since you are pointing out majorities...what percentage of Saudis do you think are fundamentalist Muslims, and how many are third country nationals not at all affiliated with Muslims? How many are businessmen that follow the faith because if they dont they get beat down by religious police with orange beards and bamboo canes? How many are members of the Saudi royal family that only go along with the religious fundamentalists to maintain power and balance in SA? How many are Bedouins, similarly managing tenuous relations with fundamentalist extremists?
    In fact 61% of American Muslims are concerned about the possibility of Islamic extremism in the United State. It seems quite possible they know something the liberals don't.

    so yes, it does matter
    This fits nicely with your blaming women for physical abuse.

    Islamophobia is an interesting word. Are you familiar with its origin?
    Considering i spent over 12 months in the Middle East living and working with Muslims in a medical capacity, it would be rather ignorant of someone to assume that about me.
    It was a joke. I was pretending to be a leftist.

    Though in fact many people who have spent time iin the Middle East often dont have a high opinion of the area. I've always been a little concerned about their Jewophobia myself.

    Yes, honor killings are despicable but you'd be surprised how often posters make the everybody does it claim whenever this Muslim tradition is mentioned.

    Well you're not talking to everyone right now, you're talking to me. I've never made the claim. Can't say i've ever seen anyone defend it either. I don't read every post though.

    You don't need to have a high opinion of the area to work in a medical capacity. You do have to be resilient and not bigoted to do your job properly though. No doubt some would struggle with that.

    Actually it isn't a muslim tradition at all, it's a tribal tradition inherent to the area.

    It's not part of the religion.

    And by the way, woman are executed in Africa for witchcraft as well...
