  1. It beggers belief. This is what we have to look forward to when and if Allah and his brown men have their way. Thank God that the leader in Uzbekistan is totally against even the mildest expression of islam. He pops people in prison for having a beard! You never can tell where that might lead to! Watch out hippies if you are planning a visit to the least islamic friendly country in the world, Uzbekistan.
