First off, its 72 virgins in their heaven, not 40. The reason for covering up their women is for religious and cultural reasons. Their culture has changed very litte (with the use of modern technology) then how it was in the days of Abraham and Issac and so forth. You have have claimed that most religions have changed except for Islam. Many religions change along with the times, yet Islam stands firm with their morals.

A lot, but not all, of Muslims dislike "the West and Americans" because they consist of mainly Christians who try to change and convert others. Here is my main point, Islam is a religion of love and peace, but there are raticals (just like in Christianity) that hate others and kill others in the name of their god(s).
