What does "Islam asks you"... mean? If I accept that as the rationale for the perpetual state of war Muhammed has designed into his ideology, then there is no hope. Islam "Asks" you nothing. It is your brain interpreting words on paper, and every person interprets it differently. Islam may sak you to be kind, and generous, but it commands you to "Kill the infidel"..

My problem is, i'm an infidel, and it makes me and millions of similiar people uncomfortable when we see "Islam asking"... killing, destruction, and hate. We have supplied the nations if Muhammed with huge amounts of money for oil which was given to them by providence, tolerated the outrageous acts in the name of Islam against our mainly Christian nation, and witnessed the barbaric beheadings, bombings, inhuman behavior and disgusting disregard for human rights. Still, Islam in the collective is not satisfied, and will not be until the entire world submits to the god of Muhammed.
