30. When we traveled
to Dubai, I saw many Indonesian Muslims....their dress was so colourful, like pale Easter eggs. It was in stark contrast to the others in their dark chadors. We can't paint all Muslims with the same brush. Trust me, some of these characters are analgous to our Christian fundamentalists. And in reguards to Abu Graib, it was an insult to humanity, not just Muslims. The fundamentalists on both sides want to keep the pot stirred in order to keep and retain power. The sooner everyone figures it out, the better off we will all be.
