Wow! I get to go buy some new earrings (they'd have to be really big to show up under that hijab), while my brother has to take care of me until I can find another Muslim man with an inheritance who can afford to marry me and buy earrings for me (that of course only he is allowed to see). That is the way we in the West treat our young children -- i.e., they can spend their allowance on whatever they want, while their parents pay to keep the roof over their heads and make sure they wear age-appropriate clothing. And what's this about buying a car? In Saudi Arabia, women aren't even permitted to drive! Something tells me you're an American convert to Islam, despite the fact that your spelling and grammar are so poor.

Everytime I see a Muslim woman walking ten paces behind her husband and dressed like the Wicked Witch of the West, I am disgusted and wonder why American feminists are so silent about this growing threat to women's liberties in this country. I've known many Arab Muslims through the years, and regardless of how smart or educated they were, each harbored a seething resentment and anger toward the West and the U.S. that would surface with regularity. If it were up to me, we in the West would kick out all of the Muslims and wouldn't have anything to do with the Muslim world, including their oil. We'd figure something out...we always have. And it would be interesting to see who has the greater need: the West for Arab oil, or the Arab world for Western dollars.
