        There probably isn't a single Muslim who hasn't committed many of those.

      Number 19 says no wine, so I guess beer is perfectly acceptable. smile
      Number 32; taking bribes is the only way to do business in Arab countries.
      Number 56 sounds a little bizarre. Guess the rich oil pumping Arabs need to stop wearing the Rolex and all that bling.
      I suppose a bacon sandwich is OK after all as Allah hasn't mentioned piggies here.
