You guys can say it's nonsense or whatever, but I'm just saying you haven't lived their life so you see the world differently. I don't agree with everything in that culture, but I also don't agree with everything in our own culture as well. It's just your projections being backed by other like minded individuals that won't allow you to see it objectively.
I think the most insecure people are those who hide behind an opinion rather than trying to see the other side. The muslims who hate our lifestyle are insecure, but so are the people posting in this thread who hate muslim lifestyles. Two sides to every coin.
You forgot to read the part where I stated that I'm married to a Muslim and live in a Muslim country.
So you grew up in a non-muslim youth, but married into a lifestyle that you disagree with yet live with everyday. Tell me again how you were raised with their ideas to give you an accurate depiction of how someone with that upbringing would view the world. You're basically saying that you don't agree with your wife's culture but love her. So maybe the people of that religion could be decent even if you don't like their beliefs.
You are the one who has the most real world experience with Muslim life, but you are still not a fan. Just like a person raised in their culture could shake their head at ours, yet live a productive life in the US. I'm not here to be a dick so I hope you don't take this the wrong way.
I also wanted to say that I agree with almost everything target the gash said. I just find it ridiculous to group up an entire culture as being insecure based on differing views. The terrorist thing has nothing to do with the entire culture. It is terrible nonetheless.
You missed the major problem, that a whole culture has been radicalized (not terrorism) over the last 30 years by Whabbi money from Suadi Arabia. Muslim cultures that was once quite liberal (Malaysia) have now become more and more insular. And Of course there's loads of decent muslims. That wasn't the question, the question was, were Muslim men the most insecure in the world and in my experience that is borne out ESPECIALLY on how they treat their women.
