By the way, intellectuals seeking answers ( or asking questions) are more likely to convert to Islam. Know couple of very respected ppl, a university lecturer, a painter, a musician ( who used to be a devoted catholic), a few Phd students. )

maybe it's a fashion ?! ) kidding.. i don't know anymore .. it's all very complex and confusing

It's not confusing, if you can see a whole picture. We, ppl born in a country with a 'kind of' islamic traditions see islam under a veil of imposed on us (culturally, traditionally, socially) representations. They see it with a fresh eye. The advantage of islam is that you dont need a mediator between you and god: read koran, re-read it and make your own decision. All these institutions of islam ( mullas, mosques etc) are unnecessary.
You know one, one Russian intellectual, married to an English woman ( they both converted to Islam) was persuading me not to drink alcohol. I found it very ironic. )))

these are just exceptions... why would someone deprive him/herself of a glass of wine voluntarily ?!..
besides, what these fresh eyes saw are not really good things, are they? killing, blowing things up, decapitatings, women beatings etc :) .. i don't follow the logic of converts ... i don't know anymore.. the more i live the less i seem to know

You see, you talk about the perceptions and representations, killing, beating etc weren't advocated in Koran; it is mullas interpretation, national traditions and customs of muslim countries thaf ppl understand as a part of islam.
Don't forget, they are intellectuals. They read a book, the dont blame a book if slme stupid p get it wrong. The mosf important jihad is the jihad against your own wrongs. You wouldn't blame a car, if a driver hurted you.

Regarding alcohol, i think its negative impact is much greater than the pleasure it gives. Actually they (my acquaintances) take pleasure in intellectual rather than wordly affairs. ))

Anyway it is a big debate. ))

i do like wordly things i have to admit ) mea culpa )
