Considering all the stories I’ve read on the net about this, I AM surprised. But then again, I’m finding more and more stories we’re hearing little to nothing about, Like this article on the complete destruction of a Sufi monastery that happened a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it was because I was on vacation when it happened, but this is the first article I’ve read about this.
BTW, has anyone emailed all those links to NOW? I bet the women’s groups will be talking about it in the next couple days….

The fact that certain stories are never told is a historical thing. Of people no one cares about, the stories are never told. It’s kind of depressing. As for the Sufi story, thank you very much for pointing that out. I am going to college for religious studies and the Sufi beliefs are some of the most looked over, people don’t seem to even consider them a religious group.
