"They rarely target fellow Muslim women for their sexual or financial exploits..."

Yes, agree. This b/c they generally Muslim men, part. MENA men, do not respect non-Muslim, American, European, women, b/c the majority of them engage in premarital sex, wear clothing that is less classy than it is revealing & engage in other life style choices (swearing, drinking even occasionally, etc.), that evoke emotions of distaste & revulsion among Muslim men.

They do respect their Muslim women, however, b/c they do not engage in the above mentioned practices (the majority, of course do not, their will always be a few that do, but nothing like in European & American culture).

"The fact that you're unconcerned by their doings is slightly apathetic."

Apathetic actually means "showing or feeling no interest, enthusiasm, or concern". So, stating that b/c I am am "apathetic" over the fact that I have no concern w/ I.S.I.S. & their doings, is redundant.

My comments (which put the ultimate blame at the women's feet, not the men's) for the situations they are in, was met w/ Ad Hominem attacks, denial, accusations of "victim blaming", angry, emotional rants, etc. Their is even a "Polly" on here who claimed by comments are "silly", yet she claims she never reads them. You can see there is much irrational behavior here.

End Point - If women don't accept that it's ultimately their fault for their situations, then it WILL keep happening to them.

AND, I'm sorry to say - all this irrational behavior only perpetuates the much cited stereotype, that women are less logical than men & that they blame others for their mistakes.

Submitting....
