in response to reader comment: The answer to the problem

Sir, there are more Muslims in China than there are in Saudi Arabia.

Not only does that mess up your whole stereotype of a Muslim, but how do you intend to relocate that many Muslims from firstly China (with a greater Muslim pop. than Saudi Arabia), secondly from Indonesia (with the greatest number of Muslims, ~ 220 million) and thirdly from India (which has more Muslims than Pakistan)...these are three examples and they could go on.

Although your suggestion may have been comical and intended to have been taken with a pinch of salt (which I assure you I did ;) ), I cannot help but thinking there is a underlying problem of stereotyping Muslims and of being ignorant of their religion that is lurking somewhere in your post.

And what do you do with the American/British/European/etc converts to Islam? :P
