Just a thing I'm thinking about about the plight of Arab women

What the heck is there in Islamic culture for Islamic women.

Just think about it. As a modest and pious Muslim chick, you live under a blanket, are always under the thumb of your male relatives, never get any sex or have a good time.

And your reward in heaven for being a good girl? You get to be one of 72 sexual playthings of an ignorant, nasty, and damned evil suicide bomber?

Frankly, if I were in the position of Islamic women, I'd leave the friggin homeland and cut loose.

But that's just me.

Maybe we should all pick out some Islamic women to save them from paradise? We can call it charity.

Rather a wide generalization of the Islamic culture dont you think?

To Muffin,

Naw...I'm just poking a little fun.

Think "Mind of Mencia".

Still...don't you think it's a nasty reward for being a good girl?

First, you are talking about generations of people who have been raised to a certain belief system...not unlike Mormons...or Jehovah witnesses...so it isn't a matter of choice...it is a matter of a mind set...not really having an alternative...

Second, I am half Lebanese...my people are all Catholics...

It is good to learn about others but be careful about generalizing...it sometimes makes it too simple...

kind thoughts,
Moonfire

OK...you're Catholic...what are you trying to say? Were you feeling like I was including you in the big generalization?

jeeze...you people are taking these things way to serious.

(by the way...I'm a recovering Catholic...went to Catholic/Jesuit schools untill 15...and know for an absolute fact that god is a pretty cool concept but all of the fan clubs suck)

O give him a break, people!!!!!I personally also think it's sucks to leave there. There treat women as ... you know what.
Did any of you read the book of former Saudi princess who had escape from over there? And she was reach and her husband kinda loved her!

So, yes, if western intelligence would play more thoughtfully, we could find support in unexpected people. We are missing INTELLIGENCE from intelligence sometimes....
