in response to reader comment: The ambivalence of muslims

I absolutely disagree with what you said (Arif) "Many people in Indonesia are very dissapointed that many indonesian maids who work in arab and islam countries got the worst service from their employers though they thought that the islam law is executed there even near by the holy places such as Mecca & Madinah."

How many people? Where did you get the data? Is it your assumption or only prediction. What I found in my hometown where more than 200 people work in Midle East different with what you wrote. They are extremely happy to work in that region. They prefer to work in Midle East rather than in Europe or US because of their difficulties in dealing with applying passport or working visa. They are common people who sometimes have no language skills (English) What do you think about this phenomenon.

Then you said that :"Most Indonesian muslims feel happier to work and live in western society and christian culture than the arab society or islam culture."

I am sorry to say that it's fake, brother. Do you conduct research to prove this statement? Where? How many respondents? Do you have any references? I think I am also happy to work and study in Australia but my uncle is happier to work in Egypt because he can easily pray (some thing he find it difficult in Australia) What do you think about this. You have been in France for 5 years so I presume you have no sufficient information, news and recent social phenomenon in Indonesia.

"This phenomenon is real and that is the fact of the portrait of muslim people in Indonesia."

Again, this is fake, brother. If you want to understand and know comprehensively about the portrait of Muslims in Indonesia you will never say that "weird statement".
