What you observe, we Muslims observe too, and many of us do not agree with it

A woman covered from head to toe and covering her face and wearing black is not islamic.

The dress conduct for women in Islam, is to cover her hair and body, she can show her face and she does not have to wear black, in fact the recommended dress is white or light colors - The fact that Iran Shi'a dress this way and some other countries does not make it right, even I can't say it is extreme, because it is not islamic.

what you see is not Islamic, so don't take it on Islam, take it on the Muslims who do not follow the book.

similarly, behaviour of Christians we don't take on Christ or his teachings, we take it on the bad behaviour of the Christians

There is only stoning of married adulter or adulteress, no other stoning... and they deserve right

Gang-rape is way way way out of Islam, not two agree on such behaviour, if it happened, it should have been punished, I am sure punishment for those will come later, either in life or in the hereafter.

Female genital mutilation is also wrong, what we call Circumcision for the man is not valid for the Woman. some countries do this but against Islam. only men should be circumcized.

A group of women sitting together in a cafe without a strange man is allowed, there is no problem with that.

Saudia is not a good example of Good Islam. it is infact a bad example.
