If you are forceful enough in your argument maybe you will win. Unfortunately for you what happened on 9-ll opened many eyes to the Islamic faith and its' teachings. We can no longer say that the Judeo-Christian God and the Islamic Allah are one and the same and only differant words for the same being or different pronunciations of the same word like tomato or potato.

God's promise of eternal life is not Allah's. Allah promises men the pleasure of sex with virgins, being waited on by servants, the drinking of alcohol and any other earthly pleasures he desires. Woman are promised eternal life, I think, and maybe bringing family members with them. To speak as if we are all one people with the same beliefs, in my opinion, shows that although you may have spent many years in Islamic countries you lived a life of isolation and or incuriousity.

Now for the covering of women's heads. I personally believe what Jesus taught, which is that God knows what is in our hearts and not by the outward signs of piety which are for man to see.
