    Talks about all this decadence in the west. Sounds like we are totally immoral. But we are not. What the muslims don't like are things like women's liberation, that is what they call decadence. The 50's was before civil rights legislation. Later many civil rights laws were passed. I am sure they don't like those either. What about Israel, passing more discriminatory laws against arabs. That is the worst news I ever heard. Muslim countries too, not improving human rights for women, etc. Looks hopeless for eastern countries who are far from civilization, which means human rights for people. Universal rights, by the way, not "Jewish" values.
