    I actually have some Muslim friends (it's a shock, I know), and some have served with me. They, BTW, despise what is happening to Islam and the actions of the Islamists, and they are under tremendous pressures in their community to toe the line and not break ranks with the Islamists, or their families will suffer.

    yes. and also Sihks and a persian. An ethiopian who happens to be Christian as about 60+% of ethiopians are christian and 30% are muslim. And look who's persecuting whom.

    of the Sihk, muslims and Persian, I would only trust the Persian in a business situation. THIS particular Persian that is.

    I've always found Persian women to be pretty hot.

    I do have Muslims friends. However, these are people who live ordinary lives and have ordinary ambitions - not an ambition to convert Colorado to Islam. While my friends follow some requirements of Islam (no alcohol, no pork, no immodesty), they ignore others. The wife and daughter do not cover their heads, the husband has played catch with my dogs, and they are unafraid to eat fried chicken that is not halal.

    In other words, these are friends who follow a different religion but very much like American culture and want to be a part of it.

    I don't think I would be friends with anyone who despised American culture and who hated ordinary American lifestyles no matter what religion they belonged to. ;)

    I've always gotten along with Sihks. They are very respectful of military folks, and they have a strong tradition of service.

    Yes, which is why the chador is a crime against nature.

    I don't have any close friends who are muslims, but there are muslim coworkers I've known for 20 years or so that I consider friends. I have a lot of muslim aquaintances, though, people I know through local businesses, neighbors, and at the community center. There's even a muslim woman who has found a modest swimsuit and a hijab made out of swimsuit material who takes her kids to the pool and likes to swim with them. Most of the muslim women sit by the side while the kids swim.
