not if it is fanatic Islam.

The picture we in the west get is that Muslims are fanatics. I started writing a comment to Saleh but I really do not think I can get through. Why would I get through when so many have tried over and over and over and over again to explain to the Muslims what the west is all about? My impression is that they simply shot down and cannot understand. Why waste any more time on explaining? If there is a will there is a way - if there is no will there is no way.

As a female I cannot even put into words how I feel about this religion. The restrictions the Muslim women have to live with every single day is beyond what my brains are able to absorb. If the Muslim men are so insecure that they have to have that power over women they are not men at all in my eyes.
