Thus spake Islam. In Dubai a British woman expat was fined appx US$800 for saying on her Facebook page that she did not like Ramadan.
I can see the fine schedule now:
don't like burqa-US$560
don't like hijab-US$395
don't like mosques-US$750
don't like Muhammad-US$1,000
don't like sharia-arm and leg(or hand and foot)
This is but another in the ongoing examples of Islam in all it's glory.

Briton fined AED3,000 for insulting Ramadan
A British expat has been fined AED3, 000 for insulting Ramadan on a social networking site and calling her colleague a dictator, it was reported Wednesday.
The 31-year old woman, who admitted posting a status update on her Facebook page expressing her dislike for Ramadan, was charged at the Dubai Court of Misdemeanours on Tuesday, according to The National.
The colleague of the accused, an Egyptian woman, said in a statement to the court that she had seen a “disrespectful” status update about Ramadan on September 4 last year.
“I told her to not say such things about the holy month as she was in a Muslim country,” she was quoted as telling prosecutors by the paper.
