Hello jennifer

> Do you know that many muslims will inveigle the Western women, through computer chat, and lure them into marriages and get the green card. They will come to West and live on the earnings of the wife for three /four years. They desert them with two children and go to the native countries and get another younger bride; they will come back and will live on the next street. The lady will be helpless on fear domestic violence.

> Do you know that Islam treats women as dirt: women is like a property, owned by the father and later transferred to the husband; divorce can be made by triple talaaq and also through SMS; Islam permits temporary marriages, morning married and evening divorced. It is, in other religions, called prostitution; women can not start their own business and they can not leave the house unescorted. A girl was seen with an unrelated boy in Saudi Arabia and she was given 100 lashes as punishment; a man, in an inebriated condition, utters triple talaaq and wants a restitution later. According to Shariaa, the man can remarry the woman after a the purification process that involves the lady marrying another man, consummating the intermediate marriage, the second husband divorcing her and then she can marry the original husband. Is this sane? Wife beating is a favourite Islamic sport and they want it to be included in the Olympics. There are more horror stories about Islam.
