How to talk to the imams, how to handle a woman, and today's articles from Maria

How to talk to the imams
I'm really liking the Aussies. Via Red State, Muslims read riot act
The Howard Government's multicultural spokesman, Andrew Robb, yesterday told an audience of 100 imams who address Australia's mosques that these were tough times requiring great personal resolve.
Mr Robb also called on them to shun a victim mentality that branded any criticism as discrimination.

"We live in a world of terrorism where evil acts are being regularly perpetrated in the name of your faith," Mr Robb said at the Sydney conference.

"And because it is your faith that is being invoked as justification for these evil acts, it is your problem.

"You can't wish it away, or ignore it, just because it has been caused by others.

"Instead, speak up and condemn terrorism, defend your role in the way of life that we all share here in Australia."
Compare that with Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, who just this morning was justifying the latest Muslim (and internationally photographed and filmed) outrage over the Pope's words, explaining how Muslims are upset over the insult to "the Prophet".
The Prophet, you say, Rowan? Like Elijah, Isaiah, John the Baptist? Or shouldn't you be saying, "their prophet?
