Jon, Agree with your comments 16 and 17. Even here in the UK my more enlightened Yemeni friends are horrified at my art works and poems. The tell me it is Haram but here they have to bend to our rules (for the most part) and haven't the authority to cause much trouble. Also, most here drink alcohol and step outside their boundaries in any case so I don't get much flak. Safe in the knowledge you aren't going to be in the firing line, it's easy to be an armchair general.
