so, after reading that article, it would seem that once again human rights are the casualty in the war for political survival...

just wondering, are women actually allowed to vote there...?

i would have thought that any candidate repealing that law would get an immediate ~40-50% vote...

careful with generalizations. especially if you have no contact with muslims or havent ever been to a predominately muslim country.

you shouldnt let bias and prejudice cloud judgement.

Edit* (WITH LINK :D)

on that basis, unless you a personally familiar with muslims. dont trash them here or i will trash you.

im noting the societies that allow religion to permeate state

often resulting in inequalities and oppression.
i have been to jordan, dubai and egypt. some of the friendliest people i have met were there. and all of them muslim.
i repeat, if you trash and generalise i will prod you in the face. it is the minority giving a bad view of the majority.
