Barbaric textbooks handed out in Saudi Arabian schools teach children how to cut off a thief's hands and feet under Sharia law, it has emerged.
The shocking books, paid for and printed by the Saudi government, also tell teenagers that Jews need to be exterminated and homosexuals should be 'put to death'.
I can only speak for myself here, but I don't *think* all 'islamic apologists' doubt that there is an aggressive strain of Islam (as with any ideology) - some of us just believe that american foreign policy tends to radicalize larger numbers of muslims and provide a bigger soapbox from which extremists can preach, thus legitimizing them instead of letting the moderate strains choke them out by not pouring any fuel on the fire.

The islamic apologists will soon be here to inform us about how this is good and why we are bigots for not seeing it.
"Get two birds. Kill one. Dip the live bird in the blood of the dead one. Sprinkle the blood on the leper seven times, and then let the blood-soaked bird fly away. Next find a lamb and kill it. Wipe some of its blood on the patient’s right ear, thumb, and big toe. Sprinkle seven times with oil and wipe some of the oil on his right ear, thumb and big toe. Repeat. Finally find another pair of birds. Kill one and dip the live bird in the dead bird’s blood. Wipe some blood on the patient’s right ear, thumb, and big toe. Sprinkle the house with blood 7 times. That’s all there is to it. "

I simply find it odd here that in an article you site with numerous things to stop and go 'Hmm' about, you tend to take the one I have the least trouble with while leaving the most objectionable for last and as a 'by the way', in comparison. A world of handless thieves would make for a world with far less theft, I'm thinking. I wouldn't stand for that here, but they is their nation, not ours. It seems to work for them....
The garbage about the Jews and Homosexuals are what is vile and rank. Perhaps all that foreign aid would be better spent helping those people get out and free of a system which would kill them just for existing. Screw the thieves though. Crime is Crime the world over.
