as many times as i re-read my prior post, can't say that that is what I said at all, LOL...

You've clearly mischaracterized an individual with limited "reach" and consideration as somehow representing Islam, simply because he is the king of Saudi Arabia...such short sightedness is the backbone of a sadly prominent ignorance world wide (not just the West) regarding Islam...

By having a more complete world view, you can then better encourage and even assist Muslims who represent the actual ideals of Islam - King Abdullah and his gold toilets probably don't cut it - as well as combat the prejudices and bigotry that are roadblocks to these efforts...

anything else is just useless diatribe...no?
