Muslim Lite

Interesting article about the double life of Muslim kids in Iran - which is pretty much true for Muslims everywhere. (try googling "muslim double life" and see how many results you get..)

The article says:
The part-time-practicing young Muslim is one of the most intriguing and unworkable things ever created by the Islamic regime. It reveals both the success of the regime's Islamic indoctrination campaign, but also its failure to keep out global culture and to control public space.

Except that it's not just Iran that has this, this exists all over the muslim world.

It also says:
But being Muslim Lite, for all its fluidity, is ultimately messy. At its heart, there lies a tremendous confusion about values.
