2000 Vol. 5: Sept/Oct

She's a Muslim, I thought as my eyes caught sight of the veiled woman in line ahead of me. Probably an immigrant. But when I heard her speak to the checkout lady, I realized that she had a very distinct American accent.

Having studied Islam for many years and knowing its teachings concerning women, I cannot understand why American women marry Muslim men.
