Mohammed heard one of his wives was leaving him, so he rushed home where he found her on the carpet in front of the tent with her belongings; he sat beside her and said, “I heard you were planning to leave me?”

She replied, “Yes, I heard your other wives saying you were a pedophile!”

Mohammed responds, “That's a mighty big word for a 6-year old."

'I've  got about  1½ quarts of that orange wine .. but it has taken on somewhat of a bitter taste.  I have a lot of that orange infused sugar syrup left, so maybe I'll mix it all together. Because I'm not enthusiastic about it however, I know in the long run it's all going down the drain.  The Orange peels though ... holy crap, to die for.  Actually, they taste  like those soft orange candy slices they sell -- and are just as good [diabetic coma] for you.. 

Thanks to everyone who sent me advice, all of it good, but all of it requiring more effort than I'm willing to spend.

My name is Bosch and I’m a recovering Muslim.
Non-Muslim Muslims and the Jihad Against the West

Recovering Muslim

That is, if Muslims don’t kill me for leaving Islam, which it requires them to do. That’s just one of the reasons I’ve been writing and drawing against Islam and its Jihad for a number of years now. But fortunately for us, Islam hasn’t been able to make every Muslim its slave, just as Nazism wasn’t able to turn every German into a Nazi. So there is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t.

But that doesn’t mean we should consider these reluctant Muslims allies against Jihad. I’ve been around Muslims my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam. The problem I have with many of these essentially non-Muslim Muslims, especially in the middle of this war being waged on us by their more consistent co-religionists, is that they give the enemy cover. They force us to play a game of Muslim Roulette since we can’t tell which Muslim is going to blow himself up until he does. And their indifference about the evil being committed in the name of their religion is a big reason why their reputation is where it is.  [Full]

This nicely explains why Muslum communities in non-Muslum countries represent a huge danger.  Kind of like how the Medellin drug cartels were able to co-opt Columbia's political, law enforcement, and  military establishments — "go along or we'll kill you and your entire family" resonates.
