94. You need to read more than just the Quran, take a look at the sharia
and then maybe experience some of it up close. Then look at muslims in western countries, even those reared there, and consider their statements and actions (Australia comes to mind). Having done all of the above, I can assure you, the issue is not a patriarchal culture. Look at India with its culture and then look at the behavior of the muslims there as well.

Islam would deny rights to all other religions, destroy any semblance of women's rights, and take us back to 7th century. It exhibits this behavior regardless of region, nation, or locale. To blame it on a particular culture is to be an enabler. There are no free speech rights or any rights if it in their view infringes, defames, or insults islam. People died in countries where those cartoons were never even published!

Yes I am passionate on this, but then again, I have good reason to be. See http://journals.democraticunderground.com/Solo_in_MD/1
