Hoping to Dispel a Few Myths
Angered (as usual) over a list forbidding time-honoured traditions of stoning women and covering their faces, Muslim women (with their male escorts, of course) hope to dispel a few myths the residents of Herouxville, Quebec may have about Islam and, in so doing, bring understanding and peace. What myths would those be? That Islam is rational, peaceful and has added greatly to both Western and Eastern civilisations? Sure it has, if by progress one means shooting nuns in the back, flying planes into the sides of buildings, raping women for any reason whatsoever, attacking a country that has been all but fair to you, burning down consulates, bombing buses, trains, and general anti-Semitisim, misogyny and racism. I mean- if you have to actually tell people NOT to stone women to death and someone gets angry about it, then really, yours' is an insane culture. It just is.
