I've asked before, and I don't think you have ever answered... how many Muslims do you actually even know? I don't mean saw once walking down the street, I mean that you have talked to, gotten to know, (ex?) co-workers, regular at the gas station you go to, whatever.
Actually, I have lived with Muslims in the same household, renting a room for a number of years. (Pakistani)
Worked with Muslims for years. They were good friends.
I have lived in a very "multicultural" city for 20 years in the UK.
But that was 25 years ago. Things have changed a lot since.
I have also lived in the middle east for 11 years, with Muslims, Christians and Jews.
I have served in the Military for 3 years in the early 1960s. (IDF)
I do have some knowledge of the culture. I had even spoken some Arabic (50 years ago).
Until 9/11 I was completely ignorant of Islam. Then I started to study it.
Does this answer your question?
