I think you bring up a very good point, Lame Cherry.

While Judaism and Christianity has seen it's share of discrimination and persecution, the best Islam comes up with is profiling at U.S. and Israeli airports.

Islam is the only religion in human history that takes offense at cartoons.

While I agree with you that the Koran is a "bastardised version" of the Bible, and to be honest, I would like to shake the hand of the soldier who used it for target practice, the "kissing the Koran" incident is symbolic of why we won't triumph - attributing to Islam the ways of the West.

Won't work. Never has, never will.
