in response to reader comment: At the average Muslims are still the best socially

You opinion is always welcome. I am not qualified to discuss the fine points of your mythology. People tend to stress the aspects of a mythology which most reflects their personality. Angry and unstable personalities are drawn to justification by violent mythologies. I know of no studies that qualify the social attributes of so called "Muslims". They may be model citizens. They are identified ,however , with a mythology which historically embraces adversary, hostility, and violence as the primary dogma for the expansion of their mythology, and consequently at risk for "Muslim Personality Disorder" when constant and repetitive exercises reinforce violent aspects of the mythology, and the implied use of violence to silence critical vioces, control other people, restrict individual liberties, and discriminate between male/ female in social constructs of law, education,employment etc..
