In the first article it seems most Muslims in Belgium are in favor of it.

In this article religious scholars came to London to find out first hand that the West does not ban their faith. It seems that many are fighting us because of propaganda about the West.
No article on the third tidbit. Saw a documentary on Saudi Arabia yesterday. It seems that they realized that pushing a strict religious interpretation of their religion was a mistake.
Their society is going through major changes. Where as ten years ago women would not even been considered to go past grade school they now are been allowed to learn the professions. (Doctor, lawyer...)
They realize they have to have people in technology and are trying to catch up to the West. Also the courses are being taught in English.
Yes they realize they have a ways to go but the prince that was being interviewed pointed to a hoof print of a camel in the sand and said as a people that is where they were one hundred years ago. That their society was not going to loose its past and culture overnight.
It was interesting to see a little of the veil being lifted.
OK your Muslim moment is over.
Now the abuse begins.
