What I think of Islam? Having friends in the U.S.A. that are Islamic is nothing out of the ordinary. They live very normal lives as you and I. And I'm uncomfortable asking them about such issues that are brought up in these movies, especially the Stoning of Soraya. I suppose they have become American and are not as extreme. So I believe it's the country's choice to treat their women a certain way and have a system of law in my opinion that is totally flawed and in favor of the men.

So after watching such movies, and reading books and articles about Islam NOT in the USA, I can't help but hate it. Hate the way they treat their women unfairly, how inhuman some events that happen, their way of torture. It's not a countries law to treat people unfairly, it's the universe's law. I hate this religion, and I do not follow a religion myself because of Islam. Shit happens everyday in any culture, but I have never seen/read about it repetitively on one subject; injustice in Islam. I'm speaking on behalf of the women. And they pray for 'allah' to cure them of sins. Hypocrites.
