Cultural Gulf

This picture from the Kuwait Times shows what one might think is an Islamic-compliant fashion show which took place at Kuwait Basic Education College. However an ultra conservative MP is claiming it violated education law because the attendance is mixed. This imbroglio has nothing to do with terrorism, but it's worth bearing in mind the different starting points of socially acceptable behaviour among different groups before making blithe assertions about Islamic extremists being a tiny minority of all Muslims.
