Re: Over the line

A minor clarification: I've been informed by a source much more knowledgeable in the cultures of the Middle East than I am that the practice depicted there is not grounded in Islam. Instead, apparently, it is grounded in the history of the Shia people. (In my opinion, that doesn't make it any more acceptable, but place blame where blame is due. Apparently it's a cultural and not a religious flaw.)
