They are kidding right? Opening up my radical Islamic CAIR alerts necessitates my squinting, turning my head sideways, and peeking as you would at something really vile. Radical Islamic CAIR and the jihad media (in this case PEOPLE swagazine) is exalting the conversion of Judeo-Christian American women to Islam? Just listen to Phyllis Chelser here in our interview, detailing life as an American woman in a Muslim country;
Angela Collins was among the millions of travelers inconvenienced a few weeks ago when British authorities announced the breakup of a conspiracy to destroy U.S.-bound airliners. The ban on passengers carrying liquids made her trip from South America "gross," to say the least. "You can't wash your face, you can't brush your teeth," she says. The incident also brought her more important concerns.
At least two of those arrested in London were converted Muslims, like Collins herself. Yet their actions were so far removed from the religion she loves. "There are those converts who choose the extreme tract, which means they are angry about the way things are working in the world without Islamic law," she says. "It's the opposite of what drew me into Islam." What drew her in, says the 30-year-old school director with pale blue eyes, was a religion that made her feel cared for, something she felt she missed growing up as a latchkey child. The Council on American-Islamic Relations estimates that some 20,000 Americans convert to Islam each year, with women outnumbering men approximately four to one. According to Georgetown professor Yvonne Haddad, coauthor of Muslim Women in America, some, like Collins, are inspired by the rules of the Koran, which they find empowering. Some are seeking a community that endorses a woman's more traditional role as homemaker. Others are purely on a spiritual quest. "I think Americans should see them as women who have found themselves," says Haddad.
