Reading this. WOW. All other things have totally slacked off as I've been absorbed in this book.
I think I find Islam so fascinating because I have a friend from high school (who is now a neurologist) whose a Muslim. And I see Islam as our future.
Have you heard the statistics (I should probably just find them.) about what percentage of Europe will be Muslim by the middle of this century? It's astounding. I feel like I need to understand Islamic fundamentalism. Of course, my friend doesn't fall into this category--she's not the type whose trying to murder the infidels and force conversion by the sword.
Unfortunately, no one else around my little town is interested in stuff like this so I read alone. Or blog about it!
I have family coming in today so I need to get ready and get this house in order.
Sorry for the lack of posts! I have about 100 pages left--then I'll be back. :)
