Like a good desert woman?
Like a good city dweller, I would say.

Wrong reason to look down on someone.
People doing honest jobs and behaving honestly must be respected.

Do he let dogs on his car?

Someone doing an honest job contribute to society; he must be respected
when drive cabs or when teach in a college. I have not much respect for
a few college teachers. They only regurgitate what was feed to them by
their teachers.

It require to give alms for the poor (muslims), the poor unbelievers
come after.

Like many Muslims before him and like him, this appear to be a Muslim
that didn't read his book.
It simply repeat his prayers at the right time, read the text, but don't
understand them. I have wrote about how the Quran is in Arabic Classic,
so near all the modern Muslims have problem to understanding it. It is
like Latin and Italian. They are forced to memorize the sounds but
rarely are told what is in the sounds.

They plan to have children?
They will be Christians, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Buddhist?
I suppose he would like they become Muslims.
But, what will he do if they tell him they want to be something other?
Ask him. Ask him what would do his Prophet in the same situation.

Here you mix what Muslims have contributed to society and what Islam
have contributed to society. The first probably something. The second
nothing of positive.

When did the atomic bomb become evil?
They spared the US, the Japan and the other allies to fight an invasion
of the Japan. They spared 2 million of US soldiers lives only, plus the
Japanese, plus the other.

Your reasoning is all about emotions.
Your in-law is a good man? So you need the urge to protect him (and your
daughter) from harm.
The people that lost relatives in Nanchino would tell you that Japan
received the right retribution for what they did there. Why don't you
think at the river of blood that the Japan Army caused in Nanchino? At
the babies launched over the baionettes, at the people marched to the
death in the forest of the Birmania and so many others that it is too
long to write. Why do you whitewash these dead and give worth only to
the dead you are interested in exploit?

Do you know what is happening in Sudan?
Do you know that the IOC (Islamic Organization Conference) support the
same President of Sudan that is accused of Crime Against Humanity?
Do you know

This is laughable, that the M.E. problem is Israel.
Israel is a symptom, the disease is Islam.
It is easy to blame all to Israel, but other places were razed to ground
after the WW2. Italy, Germany, Japan, Taiwan. Italy lost Istria and a
large number of Italians were expelled or killed from Yugoslavia. My
grandparents and their children. They lost all, but they don't continued
to live in camps (to this the Palestinians can thanks the other arabs
that prevent them from becoming citizens). They don't launched attacks
to the civilians over the border.
Americans have a very limited (not their guilt) knowledge of how much
people where displaced after the WW2 in Europe. What happened to the
Palestinians is nothing special.
They could declare their state now, if they like. They don't.
This is because they are more interested in destroying Israel than to
build a home where they can live in peace.

> Leave the Muslins alone, and they will leave you alone.

Until they will not.
Tell to the Jews of Khaybar.
Google and Wikipedia are your friends.
Study the Quran, the Hadit, the Sharia; it is all online.
Study what Mohammed did and ask yourself who would call this man
"prophet" and "example to be imitated".

For example, ask your in-law about Khaybar

Do you trust someone that consider Mohammed (the apostle) an example,
when the same Muslims believe that he ordered to torture a man for rob
him of gold? After the apostle take the wife of Kinana for himself as
war booty?

This is the "Sirat Rasoul Allah" of Inb Ishaq, a faithful Muslim living
80 years after Mohammed. It is canon for the Muslims. It is like their
