I've looked into the issue of general Islamization around the world and found very little to be gained if anything at all from Mohammad's ideas. Mostly there is no real virtue in sharia at all and democracy in a rational way is much more effective, less threatening and fairer for females by far. In this contemporary world why not just avoid the violent patriarchal colonizing assault that Islam brings and aim for true democracy with equality and equity for all.

There is no value in following the violent Mohammad into a lot of war and controversy. We should aim to ... look towards better democracy than the world has seen so far by being extremely critical and not trivializing the pain of others past and present.
