the Muslim idea of enlightenment

Reader comment on item: The West's Islamist Infiltrators
in response to reader comment: Dr. Anwar Ul Haque: Koran 6:32:…..Will ye then not understand?

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Aug 17, 2008 at 23:03

Plato - you must be slipping! y You left out: "55:70 In each there shall be virgins chaste and fair. Which of your Lord's blessings would you deny? Dark-eyed virgins, sheltered in their tents (which of your Lord's blessings would you deny?), whom neither man nor jinnee will have touched before. Which of your Lord's blessings would you deny? They shall recline on green cushions and fine carpets. Which of your Lord's blessings would you deny? "

Why are people living in tents? Are there deserts there as well? I maintain that green cushions have absolutely no place in good interior design. So that one sentence precludes me from ever reaching the Muslim nirvana. I just wouldn't want to be there! And dark eyed virgins? I prefer blue-eyed blondes - so, what do I do? And how do they stay virgins after the first week? And as others have pointed out - what do Muslim women get? So many questions .......... so few answers..........
