The fact of the matter is that not all religion is good. Not all religion is peaceful. Forget interpretation and context for the moment. One should at least admit that there is justification for good or evil in many of the world religions like Judaism and Islam, the religion as well as the scriptures themselves. So yes, I believe that there is danger lurking in Islam as well is in the other "western" religions. What I'm really trying to say is that I don't know why it is so shocking for some people to hear that some aspects of a religion are dangerous. If we continue to be too tolerant, we will end up in the same dilemma as Europe.
