in response to reader comment: 12 Muslims going after cartoonist's daughter

I 'went and went and went' to tell you about my family members and myself, NOT to show you that you were 'talking' to educated muslims, but to show you that if Muslims women were as oppressed as you said they were, me and my sisters couldn't have obtained those degrees and got respectable jobs.

And what do you mean by 'taking advantage' from the west!? My government, my office and my family paid the tuition fees for our education! It was not a FAVOUR from the west, but was a give-and-take thing! You probably know that overseas students have to pay 8 to 9 times more than the local/EU students. (But well, you're the one who never heard of the 'London School of Economics'!).

But let me tell you very honestly, I have never ever met any student or academician in my universities in the USA or in UK who judged pupils or people by their religion. I am happy that people like you DO NOT represent the western world. I have always found my classmates, teachers, neighbour and colleagues polite, EDUCATED and respectful towards others' faiths and racial background.

And what are YOU doing? you are going on and on and on with your sarcasm regarding other's religion, regarding other countries and even others' education!!!
But I am not angry with you. I quite understand where it hurts!

You said that my posting 'was meant to show that you weren't arguing with some dumb Muslim who rides a camel'. But your posting does not show that I am arguing with someone better ...
