    Providing girls with a Western education: haram.
    Kidnapping them for use as sex slaves: perfectly halal.

      800 years ago, the ottoman empire was cosmopolitan, militarily robust, and a bastion of learning; ‘the west’ was a bunch of petty, fragmented kingdoms engaging in religious wars. Civilization and barbarism have shifted geographically and culturally, but their natures have not.

        I am a bear of very little brain, and am unable to ascertain the true interpretation of all religions. In fact, I don’t even care. All I care about is how its adherents behave. And if a sufficient number of its prominent followers are savages, that will color my wee brain’s impression of that religion. (And as you state, that could change. Ball’s in their court.)
