Wow. Look at the rally in here. None of that is true. non-Muslims can visit Muslim places of worship with the excpetion of Mecca and Madina. Non-Muslims are welcome at masjids to learn or observe.

I really don't know where you got all the child molestation stuff, but whatever, if I've learned one thing dealing with you people by which i mean "racists" its that you guys make crap up. I just can't even begin to reply to all of these posts because they are ridiculous, but you cannot afford people second class status simply based on their religion.

These examples of "Muslim" countries you say are not very "Muslim" at all. Lets think about it. Afghanistan: chaos, lawlessness, nothing rules that country but the laws of the jungle. Iraq: same Pakistan: Military dictatorship, oppressive. Saudi Arabia: Dictatorship of elite, subjugating the people. Syria: Ruling family dictatorship. The only country that has a rather democratic country is Iran, and of course Turkey. You guys look at all those aforementioned countries and think "Islam". That is understandable, if I didn't know any better I would say the same thing.

However, I look at those countries and I see countries in which dictators use harsh laws, masked as religion, to subjugate the masses and stay in power. You think its a religious problem, I think its a post-colonization problem.
