If you've got to respect Islam, not drawing caricatures of certain characters and avoiding negative statements about the beliefs and practices may not be enough.
* you will not initiate a sexual relation in a room where a copy or Qur'an is open on a table.
* you will change underwear after you happen to hear the call to prayer in the toilet.
These are just some of the recommendations of this TV preacher, but I also know of women covering their heads, people stopping what they are doing, celebrations like weddings stopping, etc. when a prayer call is sounded. However, there are no problems with using loudspeakers some of which boom towards bedrooms to call people to prayer. There will be serious outrage against those who dare to complain about the decibels.

Some people just get crazy about their fairy tale beliefs. What do I care which books are in a room and if they are open or not, if I have sex.

And I certainly wouldn't change my underwear because someone molests the air with shouting.

Some people are just not satified with the fairy tales made up 1500 years ago. They some new fairy tales.

Yes, we all approve of this message, but if a religion has not weeded out its false interpretations leading to violence in more than a millennium, how is an outsider supposed to sort out the good from the bad? Secular Muslim states did try to monitor and limit what was being said or done in the name of religion, but their controls on religion were labeled "antidemocratic", resulting in the collapse of some of those governments.

Malek Merabet says one must not confuse extremists with Muslims; mad people have neither colour nor religion.

How is an outsider supposed to tell the good from the bad? Isn't it fairly obvious what kind of Islam we westerners want? The kind that condemns this violence.

Afghan women must have chosen the freedom of burqas after being forced to behave like Westerners by the secular elite.

Any time there is a post like:
"Look at what is happening in a Muslim country", or
"Look at what Islam says",
there are standard responses like
"But most Muslims do not do those things"
Well, maybe those responders should make it clear whether most Muslims did not do things because of Islam, or despite of Islam, instead of blaming the poster for overgeneralizing the accusations implied by the post. They should also answer:
* If Islam was not the cause, how come it lets evil go on?
* If Islam was the cause, how come most Muslims deviated from it?
... Feel free to add questions.

A government which has condemned the terrorists murdering people for religious sacrilege is using its powers to prosecute religious sacrilege.

How is it any human shape, even one made up of snow can provoke sexual desire in some Muslims? Yeah, sure, this is not real Islam, but could it be that such nutcases are tolerated with the hope of spreading Islam through any means, but with the reserved option of disowning them later as crazies or false interpreters?

 when we try to infer information about Islam from Muslims' behavior or views, we are asked to distinguish the good Muslim from the bad ones, and not extend the judgement to the religion; that was what I was getting at. How would I know which ones were talking or behaving in accordance with true Islam? For judging people, you are right, we can rely on our own value systems.

Story

A programming generalist with degrees in Engineering, Physics and an MBA
Introduction
Born in Turkey, in 1966, I have majored in Nuclear Engineering, received a PhD from Purdue in Nuclear Physics, and have worked in academic institutions since then. While my wife was getting her PhD, I took that opportunity to receive an MBA from University of Nebraska.
 
Being fed up with faculty employment now I am studying for IT certifications and getting my projects online, so that I can display my programming skills, and maybe find an entry-level IT position. For 20+ years, I have been programming in C, C++, C#, developing visual programming examples and Microsoft Office projects with VBA and VSTO, while also teaching in an IT department.
 
I do not expect to be posting, but if you regularly post nice pics, about news developments, science in general or science fiction stories that involve a look into future societies, please share with me. I am in the process of forming theme-based circles. I am also interested in following people who normally post in French, German, and Spanish, with the hope of grasping words and phrases, so you could also suggest such posters, if they do not mind occasional comments in English.
