11. Seems ok to our government....
I've heard no comdemnation of Saudi practices toward women or minorities comming from our government...

The point is this discrimination is in spite of Islam, not due to it. The Quran and Hadith teach against monarchies and kings, and teaches that All Men and Women are equals.

Change does need to happen, but change is not what our government wants to see. This change has to come from within, from within the Muslim world Itself. It cannot be done from outside with a only create more radicals. Moderate scholars need to show according to Hadith and Quran what the Prophet's words and vision was... To get back to the vision of Islam that was practiced in medina and in the first century of Islam... To show that the current opression is bidah, or innovation, not the result of true Islam.
