16. There is no monolithic "Muslim world"
Many Muslims to NOT "cover their women" & MOST do not "beat themselves bloody".

Several times, I've tried to compose an answer ranging from the role that Genghis Khan's relatives played in ending the great age of Islam through our imposition of the Shah on the Iranian people. With stops along the way for such events as the Crusades & the Versailles Conference.

However, that's a lot of information. With such a gaping maw of ignorance to satisfy, I'd rather try to fill the Grand Canyon one pebble at a time.

May I ask, what stagnant backwater do you inhabit such that you've never actually MET a Muslim?
