in response to reader comment: Threat of Islam

I'm glad you feel that way, but I feel plenty of Imams and scholar of Islam have openly disagreed with your interpretation by issuing fatwahs, and we see there are plenty of people to take to the streets and start killing in mobs and burning buildings down.

It's nice to say Islam is nice, but there are a lot of practioners of Islam who aren't nice. A lot of them. I think Daniel Pipes is known for estimating 15% of them support jihad terror in some fashion to full blown. I've seen poll numbers a lot higher than that, too.

It's nice to say it's all nice, but it isn't all so nice. Maybe some day.
