I'm not gonna go into debate with you on islam. but advise u to not take seriously peoplel like Arundhati Roy.

on a separate note, the ratio of muslims who are violent and fanatic is much higher when compared to other religions. and you cant deny the fact that islam is spread by sword. it is just arab colonialism passed off as religion. would like you to ponder over the life of muhammad. a guy .... who went into wars and ordered extermination of entire enemy tribes.

in no civilization and in no era have people of his nature been looked up to. let alone declared prophet. evil gets support among ppl. hitler won elections. anyways. you may read 2 books by V.S. Naipaul. "Among the believers" adn "Beyond Belief". you are doing a disservice to millions who died in the name of this 'belief'.

just becoz there are christian fundamentalists and US follows stupid policies, it does not mean this religion should be accepted and tolerated in its colonial ways. what are 'arabs' doing in egypt or morocco? just because whites live in america? you are sanctioning colonialism. injustices of the past cannot be tolerated because past is past. ask the armenians whether they have forgotten turkish genocide. put yourself in the shoes of people who have suffered due to islam.

Submitting....
