in response to reader comment: For Harraq and his flawed Muslim logic!

Dhimmi No More, you need to get with the program, man. I'll speak first hand about Pakistan since I live and work here in Lahore (until my contract ends and I'm out on the first flight) . It's a wonderful, enlightened Islamic country! Where else (except in other Muslim states, many of which I've lived because of my line of work) can you escape prosecution for murdering your sister or wife or daughter if you can prove she had an adultress affair? Wouldn't you just love to be able to claim an "Honor killing?"

The Hodood Laws (the section of Sharia law that applies to the women-folk) allow you to do that. Heck, I could have killed my ex wife had she cheated on me here! (Unfortunately, we were in America at the time.) Or wouldn't you just love to be able to use your daughter or younger sister as a bargaining chip to escape charges from a family whom you've done wrong? Dang, I could kill a man whom I don't like, then get away scot-free if I give the father of my victim my younger sister (or my daughter) to give to one of his other sons as a wife. Of course, no matter that my younger sister is only ten and wants no part of marrying some ox-driving field hand who lives in a mud hut and lives off 50 rupees (80 cents) a day; it's not her choice, it's mine! And it's legal!

Or how about the joy of being a cop here in Pakistan; wouldn't you love to be able to arrest a woman seen in public alone with a man not her husband, father, son or immediate family member? (Hodood laws don't allow that, you know.) You could get a lot of sex being a cop; just harrass every woman you see with a man until you you find one who's with a guy she claims as a "friend," (because she can't produce her Islamic Marraige Certificate) then take her out to the fields and tell her you can arrest her and bring shame upon her famly (who may then kill her and get away with it)... It's a great gig! ... Of course, if your women-folk get an attitude on you or come back with a remark you don't like, you can just beat ...them - another advantage you have as a Muslim in Pakistan and many other Islamic countries. Keep that woman in line!

Well, Dhimmi No More, I could go on and on of the great advantages you'd enjoy as a Muslim man in an Islamic country, and these are just the ones pertaining to those sub-human creatures born to serve us...women. But you get my point: Lighten up on Harrak and Ahmed; they belong to a great religion that produce such enlightened laws as these and give Western cultures so much in the ways of science and technology and medical discoveries and arts and inventions and business and advances of human causes and thought. Now excuse me if you will - I hear Prayer Call blaring down on the corner mosque and if I don't show up the religious police will be at my door soon.
