Debanjan, I see the family structure you suggest in an islamic society as a facade. It is the islamic woman alone who must keep up that facade of a happy family. The man is free to enjoy any activity, any wish to further make the western society crumble.

Here I see this side by side. Ordinary Germans next to Turkish immigrants. I see the full scale beginning with the Efes-beer-drinking so-what?-muslim to the beardy islamist guy. On the Efes-beer end I see women, on the islamist end they are invisible behind doors or behind veils. I'd rather have an open society, open doors, visible faces. Just so that I can see for myself who is happy and who is crumbling with despair.
