Mecca vs. Medina

Muhammad: Legacy of A Prophet is a very good PBS documentary. It's interesting that Islam was supposed to end tribal warfare, revenge, and the killing of women and children. Islam was supposed to liberate women and bring peace to Arabia. I wonder what Muhammad The Prophet would think of Muslims who claim to carry out "jihad" these days.

Watch the part about hijab, which shows how one sixteen year old chose for herself to wear hijab, and that her father did not want her to wear it. Watch the entire film here. Shukren Ammu for the link.

PS: It's also interesting that the Iraqi Imam in the documentary says that Muslims in America have more religious freedom than in many Muslim countries.
