in response to reader comment: Sharia Law

because he didn't invent sharia law and he sent Jesus Christ to save us for our sins. I invite you to consider this.

Um......implement sharia law in the USA? Do you even have that in the UAE, because I'm not a Muslim, and I can think of at least one woman there who is very interested in me :)

Also, have you seen the demographics of the USA? Less than 1% of our country is Muslim! And over 40% of Muslims consider themselves Americans first, Muslims second, and make over 75,000 dollars a year!

Put it simply: Not too many people here want sharia law, and we have our Constitution that has been used as a model for other countries for over 200 years now. So we are doing quite well.

What I would like to see are more freedoms for Emirati women. It seems to me like some of them are not happy in the UAE, and would like to meet a Western man and move to say, Canada or Europe.

Also, can you please allow Christians to preach the faith on the streets of Burkha and Dubai and Abu Dhabi? Is that really asking too much? And let those Muslims who want to convert to Christianity to do so? God would be very happy if you did, Hameed. This is your big chance, so do well in the sight of The Lord!
