So say most Muslims we come across - but - first of all Islam actually means 'SUBMISSION' -not -'peace'. Then - the books in the Koran that we should be paying attention to are the ones that are considered the MOST valid - that is the LATER passages, which abrogate the earlier passages, and these passages are full of hatred & killing of anyone not SUBMITTING to Islam. Now YOU may not personally think they are important or matter at all, but these passages are the ones claimed by ISIS like groups to be the MOST important and representative of what their faith stands for ! So now we have a conundrum - your book says one thing (those are your leader's very words according to the people writing it all down) and that makes him a violent murderer not a peace-loving religious teacher at all ! THAT is what your problem is and why we cannot in the West just trust what YOU tell us -

I prefer to believe what those who have left the faith tell us (even the son of a leader of Hamas !) - they know what the problems are which is why they have left - they say that there is much secrecy about the 'real' ambitions of the cult, and what they tell us outwardly is NOT what they actually want or are trying to achieve, that in fact lying is PERMISSIBLE in Islam, when threatened or for convenience. This puts us all in danger from your religion, not you personally, I do not 'hate Muslims', unless you take up the extremist behaviors, but we have to protect ourselves from the hateful ambitions being encouraged & perpetrated by those who 'take up the rage' and become martyrs for their 72 virgins (laugh - it is actually 72 white raisins per correct translation of old Arabic !) - and we need to come up with ways to make sure YOU cannot decide to be one of those people.

Right now as a Liberal-minded person, with no real hate in my heart for you or your people, I am determined to say what I think is the REAL THREAT to Western civilization - that is from your cult's idealistic book-following people and the ambitions of a cult that is not just religious, but wants to control the world - no other religious group on this planet is a threat in the same way.
