What Muslims Think
Muslim Wife is a Muslim woman who lives in Florida and posts her thoughts online in a blog. To represent herself, she posts the illustration above of a woman wearing an abaya robe and niqab face veil, as Saudis do. Here are some of her comments posted under "What's So Good About Fasting," where she describes a conversation with a non-Muslim:
Kaffir: Oooh, you're fasting?Kaffir is an derogatory term used by Muslims to describe non-Muslims. It translates as "infidel," but it literally means "ingrate." Muslims see anyone who denies Allah and his purported Messenger Mohammed as ingrates who reject their truth.
Kaffir: No food?! No Drink?!
Kaffir: Not even water? Oh my gosh...I'm so sorry!
Me: Uh....I'm not.
A reader challenges Muslim Wife's rudeness:
Anonymous said…Another Muslim reader helpfully explains it to him:
You live in Florida in the United States and you use the word "kaffir" to refer to the people who live next door to you?
I'm not trying to be rude but I'm just curious as to why you would do that...
The kaffir (kuffur) are the enemies of
islam. They are less than human unless they revert to the one true way. It is acceptable to be rude to them - regardless of where you live, for they are less than us.

Anonymous: Did I do something wrong by calling a kaffir a kaffir? Anyways, Abdullah explained it well,masha'Allah, but I'll put it to ya like this...if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck....
If you were wondering why no Muslims complain about Islamic terrorism, Muslim Wife explains it in a post called "Tag, I'm It":
What Comes to Mind When I Hear
Car: stupid loud muffler
Murder: non-Muslim: Haha.
The reason the Muslim Wife is not objecting to the murder of non-Muslims is that she's too busy laughing about it. This is a Muslim woman, probably foreign, with a very good command of English, living in the US, who is amused when infidels are killed. And why shouldn't she be? That's Islam.
