    I don't know if you saw the piece "60 Minutes" did on this remarkable woman, but that is what she is. She pulls no punches and tells it like it is about Islam as it is practiced in the backwaters of human society. Those habits...genital mutilation, forced marriage, honor killings, etc... must not be permitted to take root elsewhere and must, ultimately, be stamped out for Islam to have any credibility.

    <b>NO</b> religion or religious view which tolerates or sanctions the abuse, mutilation or murder of another can claim any legitimacy in the realm of human discourse. It must be cast aside for the filth that it is.

    Doggone it Bully, you screw up my whole day when you make sense. You could have at least thrown in "....and it's all Bush's fault!"

    Do the Muslims in the US practice this form of the religion?

    How do you stop people from believing in somethings?

    Not with Guns and bombs.

    You do it with proving an alternative belief is better.

    I missed that, I wish I had caught it. I've read quite a bit about her, she truly is Oriana like. The need for such voices is profound.
