F. Gump had a point

when he said, "Stupid is as stupid does."

The next time George Bush, or any other politician starts blathering about Islam being a “Religion of Peace,” remember this.

RIYADH — The National Society for Human Rights (NSHR), Saudi Arabia’s non-governmental rights body, will address the Governorate of Riyadh regarding Yara, a 36-year-old Jeddah-based businesswoman who was apprehended by the religious police and thrown in Al-Malaz Prison on Monday.

You may ask what her crime was.

Yara said she endured a humiliating and frightening hours-long ordeal that began with her arrest by a member of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice for having coffee with an unrelated man in a Starbucks cafe in Riyadh.

And then we have this from the Archbishop of Canterbury.

LONDON - Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, spiritual leader of the world's Anglicans, said on Thursday the introduction in Britain of some aspects of sharia, Islamic law, was unavoidable……..

His unexpected comments were welcomed by some Muslim groups

Oh, really? What a surprise.

There is no doubt, dear friends, that some people are educated beyond their intelligence.
