Kinda goes against the anti cop anti law and order genre.
Or being gay.

Those 2 countries aren't QUITE as bad as others... but like these kids, they are the outliers in the minority.

Yes, but don't forget that there are more Muslims in Indonesia than any other country in the world.

I am Irish, but I am not an alcoholic. That does not mean that the sterotype of Irish people having issues with alcohol does not have a good deal of veracity.

I've always wondered that, although my father would seem to have proven the stereotype.

You might not be but your brother, uncle, cousin, sister, Muslim buddy, or Imam... is, so my wariness and suspicion are completely justified.

You really are desperate to make excuses, aren't you?

The fact remains... these kids, and specifically their thinking, are NOT the norm in NEARLY ALL Islamic countries. In many of those countries they would be punished, or executed, for their behavior and beliefs.

Pointing out the rare exception to that pattern doesn't exonerate everyone involved in the pattern.

Pretty sad when one of the most supposed Progressive Muslim countries requires you to get your clitoris cut off as a woman. Same applies with Malaysia.

"Female genital mutilation Type I and IV is prevalent in Indonesia 97.5% of females from Muslim families"

I didn't say it did. But a little balance is always appropriate.
