    I heard your lecture on 'why didn't jews become suicide bombers', and there is one point I hear over and over that I havnt got a coherent answer to, namely 'that maybe the those suicide bombers are just the "bad apples" of the lot, as there are a few billion muslims (I am talking about outside Israel) although your second point that the muslim leaders don't condemn it -at least enough- is well taken.

      Muslim leaders don't condemn suicide bombers for 2 reasons:

      1 - they fear retaliation from other suicide bombers and is practically impossible to avoid them, and

      2 - if the leaders have the courage to condemn publicaly the bombing and killing of innocent lives, nothing would change at all. Those that decide to inmolate themselves in a suicide will not change their mind and those that consider it a total waste would feel just confirmed that this is a waste of lives for no intrinsic value. The best outcome that may come from a bombing by suicides is that eventually some streets will be named after them.

      it is irrelevant how many muslims are out there just look at history

      there were billions people out there but that did not stop the holocaust. so using that "statistic"doesnot work.

    כמדומה שכבר שלחתי את זאת אבל כיון שהוא שייך להשיעור על פרשת ראה בענין מעלה גרה אשלח עוד הפעם

    אחד מהזכותים הגדולים להגאולה בב"א הוא בכיית רחל אמנו ע"ה וטעניה שהכניס צרתה לביתה

    והנה נעיין קצת למה היה עושה סימנים, ועי"ש בהגמ' מגילה שהיא אמרה ליעקב שלבן הוא רמאי, והיא אמרה שצריכין לעשות סימנים. ובשעה זו מה היה בדעתה שיהי' עם לאה. ע"ז לכאורה צ"ל שהיא אמרה שאין עניניה בלאה הלא היא צדקה בענין זה ואינו ביושר שלבן ירמה את בעלה יעקב אע"ה הצדיק ואם לבן תכניס את לאה לחופה והיא אז תבזה מאד עי"ז אין זה ענינה וחייך קודמים וכו' וכו

    ומה שהיא נותן הסימנים ללאה היה משום שחזרה בדעתה ממה שחשבה בתחילה

    ואחר חשבתי זאת ראיתי במדרש שמוסיף דבר אחד. ונמלך רחל ונתן הסימנים ללאה

    הלא כל הזכרות הגדול הזה בא ממי שאמר אפשר איני צדוק במחשבתי

     עיין תרגום יונתן פרשת ויחי בראשית מט, ח. 

     וז"ל (מתורגם בלשון קודש): יהודה אתה הודית על מעשה של תמר בעבור כן יודו שמך ויקראו יהודים על שמך.

    You do realize that Muslims mainly eat the same animals we eat (though it seems they do eat shellfish. In one place it says no carnivorous animals, but it some other sites I checked it's anything but pig)?

    I guess you also have to go back to the Ramban about Sarah Imeinu and Hagar....

    here is the website on Halal:
