    Well first off I would say it is because they are still living in the 7th century..
    Women are classified as second class citizens...killing and torture in the name of Allah is accepted behavoir...IMO this is not a religion...it is masked as such...however it is nothing more than a radical political party with 7th century philosophy... :banana2:

    It is largely unreported. Queen Rayna of Jordan has led several marches against Muslim violence in her country. And she's hot too!

    actually what annoys me is that you all repeat the same things without understanding it,, its just cause you heard other saying the same words,,,
    what is the relation between the technology and second class citizen and the women clothes,,, is it when we are civilized or if there are more technology the women should wear less clothes ,, I mean in the 1st century she should wear more clothes than now a day,, who complained to you,, who allowed you to talk for Muslims women,,, imp Muslim girl and I didn’t complain no one did,,,, do you want all people walk down street with out any clothes for example,, I think if Islam said so "which is impossible" you will say see how Islam let women walk down in the street.....
    and again read the concept of Jihad before you say what all of you says,, it is just like a tape every one say what in it,,,
    sorry if I was tough but really all of u say the same,, with out reading why or reading the concept of Islam and understand it well,, sorry again bro

    You're not allowed to complain - if you did, you'd get your ass kicked.

    Arabian,

    Actually, if a Muslim woman wants to wear a bikini, a hijab, or wants to be completely covered from head to toe with only her eyes uncovered that is fine with me....I don't care and I will respect her choices. I just believe that she should be permitted to make those choices without facing violence if she chooses something different then what her neighbor would like.

    What I will NOT respect, is her family stoning her to death when she is raped, or a husband throwing acid in the face of his wife because he suspects her of adultery...honor killings are still accepted and, in some places, all too common aspects of Muslim extremist culture.

    I'm not sure if you are a woman or man...I am assuming by your comments you are a woman...If so please explain to me why in Saudi Arabia women are not allowed to drive...and cannot go about without a escort...a family member of the male persuasion or husband...as for clothes....what are you talking about...I do not believe or have seen for that matter US girls going around half naked in the streets...you watch way too much TV..."Girls gone wild" or movies produced in Hollywood...do US girls dress a little sexy...yes I would say....however I prefer to look at them vs a girl dressed in a tent!

    Islam is nothing more than a radical political party masked as a religion...I can attest...living in Nevada....having seen Saudi men and women in my state...gambling...dancing..drinking and just out partying...then when they get on the plane to go home...wallah a miraculous change occours...back with the tents and head gear...a little hypocritical to say the least...

    You really need to pay attention as to what your leaders say and do...rather then take them for their word...they are taking you down a dark and phoney path...if you prefer to marry someone who you are told is best for you rather than who you fall in love with...well so be it...don't tell me you think everyone in the world should agree with this hypocrisy! :huh:

    Not to argue your point or anything, but when it comes to the above, you obviously never leave your house...Girls running around half naked is the *norm* now...

    In Wisconsin? Your weather must be much warmer than here! :laugh:

    I don't think that most girls are 'running around half naked...' It's gross when it's middle age women running around looking like their daughters.
