The purity of Islam??? One has only to observe the behavior of the Muslims to really grasp the absurdity of that statement. The arrogance and ignorance expressed in the notion that Islam is now, has ever been or will ever be "Pure" is amazing. What you perceive as "Pure" , the civilized world perceives as a draconian, intolerant, brutal, dictatorship. One supposes that "Pure" Islam embraces public beheadings, enslavement of women, etc. Germany was, to the Nazis, "Pure" National Socialism. To the Marxists, the Soviet Union was "pure" Marxism. But to the non communists and the non Nazis, it was a different story. Implicit in your position is the supremacy of all other belief systems. Which, of course makes you a "Pure" Muslim.
