Your article is well written - but you seemingly admit to the very true colors of Islam - rapes, honor killings, slavery, second-class status for all women, barbaric Sharia law, terrorism and murder and jihad, the cry for extermination of all non-muslims especially Jews, barbaric executions - but then claim its not Islam thats evil.
Sir, yes it is. These atrocities arise from the heart and sole of Islam - it is a faith of hate. Christians are dragged from homes and murdered (persecution.com) by Muslims in the name of Islam, churches are burned, lives threatened. Islam really is the bastardization of Christianity, a religion of love.
I hate to admit this - but I saw a clip on a website (you can see everything these days online) of an islamic execution - a man laying on the ground tied up and blind folded - then a man comes down with a knife and cuts his head off while people celebrated and chanted "Allah! Allah!" I'm a lawyer, I'm tough. But I cried when I saw this - wish I never had. But one thing was clear - I saw the face of evil - and it was ISLAM.
What is the only religion that praises mass murder? Islam.
PLEASE tell me one good thing Islam has brought to the world?

"PLEASE tell me one good thing Islam has brought to the world?" you ask:
Quoting from my article, "Daniel Pipes Explains 'Islamism' ":
"Not being a Muslim, I by definition do not believe in the mission of the Prophet Muhammad; but I have enormous respect for the faith of those who do. I note how deeply rewarding Muslims find Islam as well as the extraordinary inner strength it imbues them with. Having studied the history and civilization of the classical period, I am vividly aware of the great Muslim cultural achievements of roughly a millennium ago."
