CAIR's hate crimes list is something to which you might want to address your complaints. You can join a whole host of people who manufacture crimes against them, calling them anti-muslim hate crimes.

Daniel PIpes has more than adequately treated this subject http://www.danielpipes.org/article/2627

Please go back to the Gulf country you speak of where there are bars and all sorts of jovial laughter and obscene lifestyles going on. I can point you to Las Vagas, which is full of Saudis, living far below islamic standards. BUT WE CANNOT WEAR A CROSS AROUND OUR NECKS OR CARRY A BIBLE IN SAUDI ARABIA, even on the US military property.

I can also invite you to any bar or belly-dancing place in Washington DC and you will see many arabs there. (Hey...didn't belly dancing exist as a lust-enticing activity long before the WEST came on the scene??) I rather like to think of belly dancing as having come from an islamic culture.....please cleaan up your own aisle before you come over here to ours.
