Islam in a nutshell.

I have spent a lot of time reading and trying to reason with many comments posted on this forum. I must say, there are a lot of underlying hateful tones towards many religions. As I read about Islam and its teachings, I am utterly baffled as to how people willfully choose to practice it. Every few posts, a "Devout Muslim" springs into action to defend the teachings of Islam by saying things such as:

"Hey, Islam is about peace!"
-Is it? OK. Fine. I will give you the benefit of the doubt. Now show me where the peace is? I see a lot of different situations, none of which seem peaceful.

"They are not true Muslims!"
-They aren't?...Are you?...Wait a sec, who decides? I'm sure they think they are the ideal Muslim, I'm sure you think likely as well. Well what exactly is a true Muslim? On Allah's bill of sale who gets the stamp of approval as a genuine "100% pure Muslim". How do you get the brownie points? Is it by praying more? Or killing and raping more? - or both? How does the same faith stem out to such different ideologies. Oh wait, I know - Hypocrisy!

"Look at Catholic churches and the priests. Look at the child-sex rings in Europe!"
- Wait, I think I know this game, it's called: "When Someone Questions Your Way Of Life, Quickly Change The Topic To Avoid The Problem". But back to the statement...What about it? Yea, it's wrong. We know that, and condemn it. Can you say the same about your practices?

After much research, I have found some groundbreaking new evidence!

If we take the word: I-S-L-A-M
and if we apply my theoretical "co-efficients hypocrisy" where,

I = F
S = AS
L = C
A = IS
M = M (note: this is unchanged)

we get, the following equation:

ISLAM = FASCISM

I'm not here to argue, I'm here for insight, the likelihood of which seems unlikely.
