She was lucky .According to their law she could have been hanged or stoned for heresy.Let's hope she has enough sense to leave the country.If ever these ratbags ever reach a significant majority in our country later in this century we can expect the same.We need to put the brakes on their requests now before they become demands.We still control our parliaments ,armed forces and police force make sure we keep it that way.for our future generations

‘Non-Arab Muslims pray in Arabic without understanding it. They repeat the words parrot fashion. This is also the case when they read the Koran. I have not the slightest doubt that many Christians who live in the Arab world know a great deal more about Islam than non-Arab Muslims do. What is more, Christians who live in Arab countries are more influenced behaviorally and intellectually by Muslim culture than non-Arab Muslims are. … When an Arab-speaking Muslim prays, he understands what the prayer means, while a non-Arab Muslim repeats the prayer without understanding it. … A Muslim prays five times a day, and on each occasion he recites the Fatiha, the first verse of the Koran, a number of times. This verse describes Christians as “those who have gone astray” and Jews as “those who have incurred Your wrath [also God’s wrath].” We see from this that Muslims execrate Christians and Jews a number of times in the course of a single prayer, which they repeat five times a day. Non-Arab Muslims are unaware that they are cursing the Christians and the Jews, because they pray in Arabic without understanding what they are saying. This means that the quantity of hatred they absorb from their prayers is less than that absorbed by Arab Muslims, who are aware of what they are saying.’

“Islam subjugated the cultures of all the peoples it afflicted, but it eradicated all traces of indigenous Arab culture more thoroughly than those of any other. ... Islam, as I said before, damaged the cultures of all Muslim peoples, but, since the Koran was written in Arabic and its translation into any other language is forbidden, Islam was unable totally to blot out the characteristics of other cultures in quite the same way it erased Arab culture.”

‘When I remember my childhood and reflect at length on our teachers’ and clergymen’s accusations against Jews in particular and Christians and other non-Muslims in general, I say to myself: If learned Muslims could replace the enormous quantities of hate contained in our schoolbooks, both religious and secular, with studies that focus on loving other people regardless of their religion, racial origin, or nationality, they would help to save the entire Muslim world from backwardness, hunger, poverty, and ignorance. That hatred could well destroy us before it destroys our “enemies.” For hatred is like acid in that it burns the container that holds it more than it damages the surface it is spilled upon.’
