I didn't mention that to put down your education or to put you down either. I'm impressed and glad that your family is so educated. It's just that no matter what, the West is portrayed so negatively (even when people achieve positive things from the West.) I'm not going to rank on you, Anonymous. Although you keep saying that's what I'm doing. Maybe we have some sort of problem between our dialects. I will apologize for making you mad. I knew the statement about the Q'uran was probably going to make you mad, but I didn't say it to provoke you. I honestly think that is the common thread that has been used to justify the killing of innocent people. Obviously, you don't interpret it that way, but many Muslims do. If stating my opinion makes me impolite, uneducated, and disrespectful-- so be it.

By the way, when you first mentioned the 'London School of Economics' you referred to it as the 'School of Economics' which would be too vague to recognize.
