Sorry I'm late, I was so busy last week. Anyway, I fully agree with you on the head scarf issue, that it should be considered as personal right except in the security matters, and it should be practiced only by personal choice, but I have too comments first, the Muslim man does not impose head scarf on woman in overwhelming Islamic countries except few countries like Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan and may be Iran, I'm not sure. Secondly I understand that Christian woman should also wear head scarf inside the churches beside that all Christian sisters should wear it inside or out the churches. Am I right? If so why is that?

I don't have a clue about Sultana, and ACLU, could you explain please

Also, I agree with you that both Misiar and Orfy are legalized forms of having a mistress, but the fact is all and all the well respected families refuse completely these kinds of marriage.

Regarding mistress, I didn't deny that there are no mistresses in the Islamic countries, which would be stupidity because humans are humans everywhere, but at least both man and woman are trying to hide this illegal relationship because it is rejected in the society contrary to the west that maybe a girl goes to her father tilling him that she is going to have a baby without marriage. This happens because of the extra freedom and secular values which is against the church's values itself.

Moving on to polygamy let me till you practical example I have gone through myself, one of my friends in Egypt had been married for more than seven years without getting a baby because there was medical problems with his wife, they went to the doctors and spent thousands of pounds but for nothing. At last his wife gave him two choices: to get divorce, or to let him marry again. He told her that he will never divorce her and he accepted his destiny, but under her continuous pressure he agreed to take another wife. Now he is living with his two wives and two children in peace. My personal opinion is that polygamy is just like a knife, you can use it to cut an apple, or to kill.

As for conversion to Islam, you posed a very good point that the concerned authorities should impose a studying course before allowing to anybody to convert. By this way the one willing to convert will know his rights and commitments.

Regarding the American invasion to Iraq, let us try to see the whole truth and not only part of it.

Saddam was criminal and dictator, that is a true, but America had blessed his war against Iran and even provided him with weapons, that is a true also. Furthermore, almost all the Arab leaders are dictators like Saddam, so why America is keeping them?

The only truth is that policy is always dirty, and seeks only for the interests away from any values or humanitarian matters. Don't you agree with me with that ?
