Gee, projecting much?

Every now and then, when I feel my blood pressure is getting a little too low, I wander over to a few places guaranteed to get me worked up. One of them is Arab News, the official mouthpiece of the Saudi Royal Family.

This time, I found a truly enlightening story. It was the account of several American women who had converted to Islam and moved out of the US.

I guess Islam is, indeed, the official religion of topsy-turvy land. One woman converted after the 9/11 attacks, which provoked her interest in the Religion Of Peace. Another said she fled her Catholic family in Texas after they threatened to kill her for converting and marrying a Muslim.

As I recall the old joke, the Muslim father tells his child "marry outside the faith, and I'll kill you." The Jewish mother tells her child "marry outside the faith, and I'll kill myself." And the Christian parents just hope their kids will actually marry someone, preferably of the opposite sex.

I probably should be more outraged, but this propaganda is just so bad it's more laughable than anything else. I guess I'll have to just find something else to elevate my blood pressure.

The problem is that these women are only told the nice side of Islam so as to entice them to convert!!

They are not told the cruel elements inherent to Muhammed's deranged teachings...ie. Beating of unsubmissive wives, treating women as sperm receptacles, Women are the majority of people in Hell, etc etc....

Islam is to women what Stalin was too property owners!

Why would any woman convert to Islam?

I've been trying to come up with an intelligent comment, but I can't wrap my head around the concept of a woman willingly converting to a religion that will supress and dominate her completely.

Aysha came to the fold of Islam after the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States. The kamikaze attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon ignited her interest in Islam.

I'm sure they love the part of "if you don't make diner/have sex/clean up after me/ do what I say, then I'll take you to the town square for an' old rock throwing contest until you are dead!"

Filing this under 'asshats' is correct.

Only in America could you find some women who are so incredibly stupid that they would rather live in Saudi Arabia.

There's always someone willing to marry the most deranged psychopath in prison and write him letters.

Truth is often stranger than fiction.
