Right, Dihimmi ! Still, she's an interesting case ! Sounds like she is dying for aplause, so she looks to the weak and ignorant minds among us, in hopes she can build a following of admirers, and sympathizers. Believe it or not there are some people who think we are too hard on Muhammad , and sympathize with him. ( after all, he was a great and peaceful leader ! ) I think of a couple of harebrained relatives of mine. They have tried to point out to me that Karen Armstrong is " a lover of all humanity " . They think I'M a case and a shameful bigot. What they can't understand is that I'm tuned in and they are typical "hate America" bleeding hearts. When they think of Muslims all they can see is doe-eyed little girls in pretty scarves. That's their idea of any Muslim moderate.

Karen Armstrong should shut her ...and tune in to reality. You are correct , dihimmi ,when you say she is uneducated when it comes to the history of Muhammad etc. She has a dream: a dream of a world where men riot and intend to behead those who say one "wrong" word against thier religion, and women are ----let's say... MODEST ! It should be shocking to show too much stocking ! Armstrong wants to believe a society is only as good as it's women are pious. Just ask any Saudi prince. Should we be wondering just how many more of her are around ? I'd like to think she's a rare case, but I doubt it.
