This from Abu Daoud:
Folks always say they want someone who can deal with the Islamic nations intelligently and who understands them. Someone like Palin who actually BELIEVES in her religion, unlike pseudo-Catholic VP nominee Joe Biden who supports abortion rights, is that kind of person. My experience indicates in a very solid way that religious Muslims respect religious Christians (who read the Bible and go to church weekly and fast and pray regularly) much more than they respect non-religious Muslims. Need I mention non-religious Christians?
