Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: muslims, the west is sorry

Submitted by Mark (United Arab Emirates), Mar 7, 2006 at 13:15

Ghady, if the west is way behind Islamic countries civilisation-wise, then tell me why you didn't spend 15 years doing your studies in an Islamic country. Why would you study in the US when its civilization is way behind?

Oh and why for that matter are there not a huge line of American students trying to get into nice Islamic Universities in Arabic countries for example.. why would so many muslims choose to get their education in countries that are way behind their own?

Are you guys doing some kind of forensic anthropology or something?
