ginmar on respect:

 I saw lots of propaganda in Iraq. Not one piece of it mocked Jesus Christ. For me, the notion that Muslims would protect my(in theory, at least) prophet as well as their own puts a whole different spin on it. They extended to us a courtesy we didn't even appreciate or know about. Kind of like, when the guy in the marketplace averted their eyes from my unveiled self. They were being courteous, because their prophet told them that the veil of modesty should be on their eyes. I didn't know that: at first I thought they were being rude.
