    This was the second time I’ve heard a reference to Muslims not swallowing saliva during Ramadan. I spent 3 years in Kuwait and never saw this. I even asked a couple of friends of mine about it…one a convert and one a lifelong Muslim. One said, “What would we do with it?!” and the other said, “Don’t believe everything you hear about Islam.” They both thought it was a bizarre notion.

    So I’m curious…where does this idea come from?

    BTW, a Muslim country during Ramadan can be fun. For a month of fasting you sure find lots of really great food available for the holiday…after sundown, of course. Not to mention that the work days are shorter. :)

    We’ll check in with Prof. Francisco on this. I suspect Kuwait may be a bit more “civilized.”

  3. Great show! Was Dr. Francisco able to stay for another segment? Would love to hear more of this, especially in light of current events.
