in response to reader comment: There is nothing like a "Moderate" or a "Radical" Islam, there is only one Islam.

First of all let's see why people separate Islam to radical and moderate. It's not actually a difference in religion but a difference in actions and reactions of a Muslim individual. Thank god for the distinction that people use, because if they saw the same, would have a conflict between Christians and Muslims.

The reason for the "later version" was in order to make it easier to absorb Christians. In other words Christ is also messenger of God but we have the last and final version believe in our way. That's why you don't accept he is the Son of God because if you did, He would have a greater status so you have to become Christians. Another reason is women, in order to increase the population of Islam. Since biologically is 1 man 1 woman also what Christianity preaches, not 1:4 you need the extra women, which many times had to be Christian which you would take many times even forcibly, Christian women in order to produce more sons and daughters . Don't say no, 400 years of Turkish Muslim occupation in Greece make it a FACT. That's why a Muslim can have a Christian woman give rise to greater Muslim population but no Christian can be with a Muslim woman.

About terrorism, despite Greece having been occupied for 400 years by Muslim with extreme brutality which is a historical fact, we still didn't reach this level of actions. But lets get a closer look who occupies who's country. Jews were there before Palestinians, some people were talking about the last 200 years well that isn't far back. when Alexander the great (2300 years ago) was there Jews existed. where Palestinians comes from Arabs that came much much later. Jews left due to continued oppression and prosecution is clearly mark as the EXODUS in the old testament. I could be wrong. So it is the Palestinians who occupied Israeli territory. Doesn't justify what Israelis do a lot of times to Palestinians.

And for the last paragraph, really, US is so bad and the western Europe as well, then why people leave other countries and run towards them to live and prosper. Lets talk about rapes you think a woman gets raped in Iran or any strong Muslim country will dare to say anything, not reporting doesn't mean lack of existence. By the way keeping women in a virtual house arrest reduces rape I'll give you that. Finally you confuse anarchy with freedom and democracy.

Peace upon you
