They use love

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Islam is all within and outside the relationship

Thanks for your informed response, Numina, not much more to add to it other than recent observations. I've noticed that they will usually have more success with women that are very accepting of others, or with those that feel out of place within their own communities. So they will then go on to lure them in with the promise of love, as well as special treatment. As you said, the culture predominantly benefits men but I'd imagine that many women are drawn in by the idea of being treated like a princess in a tower. Women that like being told what to do, or are codependent.

Then there is the notion that Islam will accept and embrace them, treat them like an old friend. And in the beginning, they do. But, nothing is unconditional and they eventually will want payback for their kindness.

What wonderful people :-)
