hate, murder and terrorism! After all, actions speak louder than words.

Reader comment on item: [Beltway Snipers]: Converts to Violence?
in response to reader comment: Islam does NOT spread terrorism

Islam is the only religion allowed in countries such as Saudi Arabia. Islam is the primary religion in the Middle East. And the Middle East is a cesspool of violence, murder, and rage. From the Muslim Sunnis killing the Muslim Shiite, to the Muslim Shiite's killing the Muslim Kurds, to the Muslims spreading out world wide to attack everybody else (Buddhist, Christians, Jews or Hindus), the whole region is a nightmare.

Furthermore, historically Islam was spread by the sword. Convert, die or pay a head tax was the options giving to the infidels when Muslim holy warriors overran the Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia.

There are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia, the center of Islam. The Muslim Saudis are so intolerant they won't allow it! There are no equal rights for women in Saudi Arabia, Syria or Sudan etc. Islam has brought the world such terrible terms as "honor killings" of women and female circumcision (which is nothing more than female genital mutilation). From this region, we have Muslim Chechen rebels attacking schools in Russia shooting 6 year old school girls in the back with AK-47s as these frightened children flee from the school gym that these Muslims had just blown up. Muslims fly planes into buildings in America, attack Olympic Games in Germany, shoot toddlers in baby carriages in Israel, murder school girls in Thailand, blow up buses in India and bomb nightclubs full of young people in Indonesia

It is amazing that in 2007, the Jews don't attack the Buddhist, the Buddhists don't attack the Christians, and the Christians don't attack the Hindus. But where ever Muslims met the Buddhist, Muslims met the Christians, or Muslim dominated societies met the Jews, there is war. But the Buddhist, Hindus, Christians live with each other in relative peace. The only religion, the epicenter of the World's violence, comes from one place, the Muslim dominated Middle East.

If Islam is a religion of peace, then why do the Muslim Sunnis, Muslim Kurds and Muslim Shiite kill each other, and why is this whole area so intent of bring death and misery to the rest of the World? Actions speak louder than words. And the only words coming from Muslim dominated countries are words and acts of murder, rage and hate.
