OOPS> hit reply too quick.
I would use the situation to see what makes them tick. I have had dealings with muslims in the past and found them less than friendly at best.
The ones that were "friendly" didnt seem genuine...like they were hiding something.
I didnt like them before 911 and bloody well didnt after. I judge a group of people by their actions.
Beheadings of all kinds,
stoning of women (especially when they were the one victimized,
women being property more than human,
sharia law in general,
the cancer-like infestation that their culture is doing over here and other places in the west.
Michiganistan, Richardson (here in the dallas area), parts of England, the Northlands (Scandinavia-Germania) where the police will not go for example.
Their culture and ours are incompatible. Maybe after they have their own "reformation" maybe they will have a chance.
Until they become humans, I will have no dealings with them that are not necessary.

hope for them. Its too bad we are so spread out (like Rome) too help them out.
Any of them that reform to a different way, I will be the first to offer my hand.
I will stop now before this becomes to much of a rant. Besides this is getting way off topic.
