You write "It s is amazing what the so-called Democratic West is thinkng of doing this. How in the world are you going to Ban Islam, throw out Muslims or forcibly convert them,or evn try to censor the Quran-e Karim?".

Guess what? Exactly the way the "Democratic" west did to natives in the US and to the communists and to the Japanese during WW2.

Remember the Chinese Exclusion Act? It was a US law passed in late 19th century (or was it early 20th century)

Exactly the same way, they can declare Islam illegal, deny all banking privileges (checking accounts, credit cards, loans, etc) to people professing islam, terminate their jobs and their driver licenses, insurance, utlities, etc.. Guess what? They will be starving very quickly. You cannot live without banking services or jobs; you cannot run your business without banking services. or insurance. They will opt to go to Mecca very quickly.

Never mind, "Democratic" west is famous for doing 'undemocratic' actions; just read its history.

Would you like me to formulate a strategy for it?

Rest of your post was self-serving as to why US should not ban Islam, and hence does not deserve any reply.
