Sana,

The reason I talk about Islam and will explain it to muslims is because some muslims don't know their religion and in particular, areas I talk about are those beliefs that are in the least uncomfortable and at the most embarrassing. Why you ask? Because it is these "dark" areas i.e. killing apostates, killing infidels, dhimmitude, anti-semitism, that were used in Mohammed's time and today by groups like Al-Qaeda, Ansar al-Islam, Jemmaih Ismalayyia, the GPSC, and other groups to use violence and kill. There are other groups like Hizb ut-Tarir, members of CAIR and Islamic Thinkers Society that want to achieve the same but quietly through becoming the majority in the West. Both have the goal of restoring the Caliphate, the imposition of Islamic law to govern the world, and Islam being the only religion worthy of worship (BTW, the Qur'an states this explicitly.)

You may chose to ignore these areas. You may pray 5 times a day, fast at Ramadan, and give zakat, and eventually go on a hajj. Islam maybe a personal religion with you and help you to be a good person. If so, great. The world needs people to be kind and decent.

But that is not what I see Islam doing when it wants to spread throughout the world. Beginning with Mohammed's comment that his desire is to stable his horses in the Vatican to the genocide in Sudan.

You say dhimmitude doesn't exist. Well, you haven't looked close enough. Let me give you a couple of examples. Malaysia. Until this year, Christmas carols could not mention the name Jesus Christ. The Christian schools cannot teach Christianity as a subject. It can only be taught during Church services. If you are muslim, you qualify for lower interest rates on loans, have access to better education, and government jobs. Non-muslims don't receive these benefits. Saudi Arabia. Bibles and religious articles are confiscated at the airport and destroyed. Is there a world-wide outcry? NO. Do you see Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhist chanting "death to Islam" in the streets or going on ramages destroying and killing? NO. People are imprisoned for praying in their homes. I could go on. If you want to learn more, then read the works of Bat Yo'er on this subject.

If you don't like that I do this, get used to disappointment. When I hear muslims back-up the rhetorical comment "Islam is a religion of peace" with rejection of these "darker" aspects and it's desire to dominate the world, then I will stop pointing-out these facts.
