I have a very close friend tell me the same thing. I was flabbergasted and didn’t even know where to begin. Apparently, in college she had a member of the saudi royal family (lower caps intentional), 13th or so from the crown, as a roommate. She had gone to visit her and was treated very well. None of the females at that time were wearing veils - this was maybe 20-25 yrs ago. Once I was able to speak, I told her that things had changed.
I had to regroup as I didn’t want to lose her as a friend. She is a good person but with a severely autistic son, she doesn’t have much time for current events. I asked her to change the subject and never bring it up in my presence again. I am NOT going to forward her articles or pictures. One day, she will see the light and I will be here if she needs any clarification.
Every time I see on TV some outrage and she’s with me she’ll always say well there’s some good ones out there. I come back with “where?” When have you ever heard of an Islamist doing good?
