Series of posts on Islam

Gypsy Scholar has some fascinating posts on Islam.

I wish I had the writing skills contained in his pinky finger.

It behooves us all to try and understand what is happening in the Middle East and to understand "Islam." I have spent a lot of time working with people from Iraq, Jordan, Afghanistan and other Middle Eastern countries and I fully admit that I do not understand their culture or religion. Some of the things they say and do just blow me away and seem to defy logic. Yet, it is perfectly logical / acceptable to them. The posts at Gypsy Scholar are a wonderful help towards understanding what is Islam. I hope these posts are only a beginning.
