What if there are people who like slavery and owning slaves, yes even Africans?
What if there are people who think women are less than men, yes even women?
What if there are people who think that Mohammad's way of life was perfect and can't be modified?
What if there are people who think that all the world's ills are because of the Jewish People?
What if there are people who think that violence against the Jewish People, the Christians, and the Infidels is fine, until they submit to Islam?
What if Islam 'light' or Islam 'mild' is only something that appears until the real Islam rears it's head?
What if reforming Islam is impossible because it would reform the Koran and the words of Mohammad, and the words of Allah?
What if all this talk about reaching out to Islam is just talk? What if only one side wishes to reach understanding and compromise? What if only one side wants to live together in mutual respect?
WHAT IF ONLY ONE SIDE BELIEVES THAT ALL OTHER RELIGIONS WILL SUBMIT TO THEIRS AND BELIEVE THAT THERE WILL BE NO PEACE UNTIL IT IS ACCOMPLISHED, IT IS FINISHED? WHAT IF ONE SIDE BELIEVES THAT IN ORDER TO FINISH THEY MUST FIGHT THE JEWISH PEOPLE UNTIL THEY RUN AND HIDE WHERE THE ROCKS AND TREES WILL GIVE THEM UP.? WHAT IF?
