Josh, I take your point. But it seems like your information about Muslims is limited, at least as far as their habitat is concerned. I get that from your expression 'God forsaken desert'. For your information, Muslims come from all around the globe, from all the continents of the world. 4 out of 5 Muslims are not Arabs, only one out of 5 is an Arab. The largest concentration of Muslims are in the islands that comprise modern day Indonesia. As a country, they are the most populous Muslim majority country. And if you know about these islands (Java, Sumatra, Borneo, and numerous others), for the most part these are lush green country. Many of the people in the villages have no idea what a desert is like.
