in response to reader comment: Where is the relevance?

You don't think modern Muslims in the Middle East are predisposed to violence? You don't see the many different factions at war with each other? Or the butchery of innocent people at prayer or while shopping? Haven't you received one newspaper in the last fourteen centuries?

You're right about this, Mr Illian, you won't find the nation of Islam on the plastic globe in your library. But, according to Muslims, there is a "nation of Islam," It's in their teachings and in their hearts. So please don't get all profound on me.

Extrapolate - to use known facts as a starting place from which to draw conclusions about something unknown. When did I do that? I recounted the history of Islam. Islam took it's first violent step fourteen hundred years ago. and is still at it today. I drew no conclusions. Their actions are out there for everyone to observe.

What's humorous to me is that in the 131 words you used to make two paragraphs, you actually managed to say nothing at all. So, extrapolate THAT!
