Josh elaborates: "And when I say 'strict adherence,' I'm not kidding around. Men are forced to pray, grow their beards a certain length. Among my favourites is, there's only one acceptable cheer at a soccer match: 'Allah-u-akbar: God is great.' If your guys are getting creamed, then you're on your own. Things are a lot less comic for women, who aren't allowed to attend school or have jobs. They're not allowed to be unaccompanied and oftentimes get publicly stoned to death for crimes like not wearing a veil. I don't have to tell you they don't need to shout at a soccer match: they're never going to go to one. So what bothers them about us? Well the variety of cheers alone coming from the cheap seats in Giants' Stadium when they're playing the Cowboys is enough for a jihad." The widespread misuse of the term jihad is something I have written about elsewhere, so I won't take up your time with it here, save to say that the excuse that "well, everybody's doing it" has never been a good reason for anything, and while words do evolve and change meaning, the consequences of being sloppy and irresponsible with this particular word are very significant. "To say nothing of street corners lined church next to synagogue next to mosque, newspapers that can print anything they want, and women who can do anything they want, including taking a rocket ship to outer space and vote...and play soccer." Thank God our society has achieved perfect freedom and equality for all women. "This is a plural society. That means we accept more than one idea. It offends them. So yes, she does have a point but it certainly doesn't mean that you should listen to her." One girl asks, "What do we do now?" Josh suggests that they're going to need some people smarter than him. Donna: "Definitely." Josh: "Thing is, that's pretty tough to find." But he'll go upstairs and see if he can get some of his friends to join him. He says that he doesn't know what's happening or how long it will take, but he asks if they're hungry. He directs "Freddy" (Billy) to take a couple of people and go to the kitchen for apples and peanut butter. He boasts that he's gotten entire pieces of legislation through Congress on apples and peanut butter. He says he'll be back shortly.
