"Muslim nations face AIDS reality"

According to a Yahoo News Article:

An AIDS crisis is threatening to overwhelm many predominantly Muslim countries but their leaders remain in a state of denial and are doing little to stem the deadly problem, a pioneering study says.

The report said that even though the Muslim world was home to behaviors such as premarital sex, adultery, prostitution, homosexuality, and intravenous drug use --which help spread the HIV virus that causes AIDS -- many governments have been slow to respond to the rapidly spreading disease.

"What is especially troubling to behold is the reluctance to admit that Muslims engage in exactly those same dangerous behaviors that support the transmission and spread of HIV/AIDS elsewhere," it said, blaming "deeply rooted cultural and religious attitudes.

Hmm, I thought the Muslims were so much holier than we "infidels," and did not engage in such behaviors. How then, do they justify attacking us? I always hear that they hate us because we are so corrupt and immoral. But are these not immoral behaviors (not to Liberals, of course)?
