in response to reader comment: Different point of view

Saudi Arabia is a country of equality? When did this happen?

If Mohammed was any other historical figure we would be able to talk him about rationally and without raising peoples emotions, the good and bad sides. The fact that he defended his own people very well and the fact that he was a modest libertarian by the standards of his time. However we would also be able to look at his imperialism and the fact that views on slavery, whilst fairly normal for the time and place he was living are horrible when viewed by modern standards. Islam is a religion built on imperialism and social control, it's laws and standards of conduct really have no place in the modern world. Talking of Saudi Arabia, just look at the 'freedoms' afforded to women in general. If' that's an idea of a tolerant and merciful society, I'll take my chances in secularism and scientific reason thanks.

I have met many Filipino's worked in Saudi, none who would ever go back.
