Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Separation of church (mosque) and state is necessary to protect women's rights and block Islamization

"Sweden was recently scandalized by the murder of Fadime Sahindal by her father. The Kurdish emigree family objected to the young lady's choice in boyfriends."

You name one (tragic) incidence of bad behaviour from one Muslim man and then jump to the conclusion that all Muslims treat women badly. What about the millions of other Muslims? You judge everyone by one case you read about? Even if you brought forth a thousand examples, it would still not be sufficient for you to judge a whole race.

Women get killed and raped in the world all the time unfortunately, so if a Christian or Jewish or any man from any other religion killed his daughter that makes all Christians or Jews or whatever bad people? What kind of logic is that?

And you saying seperation of Church and Mosque from the state protects women's rights?? Are you saying Christianity and Islam oppress women? I can tell you for a fact, as a Muslim woman, my rights are NOT oppressed in any way, in fact Islam gives me my full rights and equality.

As a fellow woman (I am assuming you are a woman), I would recommend you read the Koran and see how many times God commands men to treat women well, seriously, read it and try to understand it with no hate or biast in your heart - find out more about Islam and women in Islam. There is even a part in the Koran that raises mothers to a very high level, to be reverred.

In fact I invite all women to read the Koran and try to understand how wonderfully respected women are in Islam.
