You can pretty much quadriple any number of "hits" you found on yahoo.

Second, even muslims do not agree. When al quaeda tried to turn parts of Afghanistan into a 16th century world, the muslims stated that women covering themselves from head to toe was not part of their tradition.

So please don't make broad generalizations about muslims based on what you find on yahoo.
Redbird, you're my favorite poster on City-Data.

Then title it as a question not as a statement.

The title, "Why does eveything 'outrage' muslims?" shows that you find your "findings" (regardless if theyre from a search engine, reliable source, or from the moon), to be factual.

Oh? My mistake......you do tend to bring up an imaginary US that is a theocracy at the slightest provocation. My bad, though if that wasn't your intent.

So, any abortion clinics being bombed in the Netherlands recently?

Nope, abortion is not an issue here. Every doctor no matter his religion is obliged to give info about abortion to anyone who asks for it, even if it is against their religion.
In Holland the doctors are doctors and not priests, so they have to keep their individual opinions about abortion to themselves.
