Yasmine,

Thank you for your honest reply concerning dictatorial Saudi Arabia. Your honesty is highly unusual and, I think, brave too. However, I do take exception to the usual problem with regard to ANY problem emanating from Islam: Blaming instead of taking responsibility and correcting your own problems. Islam's problems come from Islam ... not Islam's 'best friend' or 'worst enemy' .. but strictly from Islam itself. Must I really inform you that Islam has been around a lot longer than President Bush? Is it really necessary to point out that the only functional country in the ME is Israel? You mention your religion to me .. but I'm not going to do the same. I'm an American - as such my religion is my choice and it's a private affair. Just know that I am aligned to freedom of choice in every cell of my body and soul.

The totalitarian nature of Islam is not something anyone else created except Islam. As for Iran ... please ... for the sake of any sort of honesty .. any sort ... do not call Iran tolerant or free .. it is most certainly not either. Overthrow your own 'government' ... stop blaming everyone else for your problems and then expecting them to come to your rescue. Alternatively, If you want help - ask for it and stop hating those who would help you. Ahmijinidad is a completely evil man .. that's obvious. Why pretend otherwise? If he gets his way, all of Iran and most of the ME will be blown off the face of this earth .. isn't that a compelling enough reason to stand up for what's right? Stop blaming and have the courage to change, Yasmine.
Submitting....
