in response to reader comment: Islam is what it does

I do not condemn a religion on the actions of 1 person, I do condem a religion on the actions of entire nations claiming to be islamist, on the scriptures in their holy books and on the actions they still commit while having their holy scriptures' permission.

That Islam allows it's followers to lie to all in any manner as long as it benefits their religion is troubling me a lot. How can a "non-believer" trust an Islamist telling him/her the truth when it is ordered by his faith, the faith he follows, to lie to me?

When drawings can cause civil unrest, and even murder. All with the support of it's "church"- and country-leaders, how can you then still claim the belief to be favorable to all, peace loving, etc...?

When the Q'uran, the Hadith, etc... all are filled with contradictions and even asks of it's followers to lie to, rape and kill non believers unless they pay a very humiliating tax to the elders of the community who are followers of the Islam.

... Why do you still hold so dearly to this faith, religion, way of life, culture, etc... that all is part of the Islam you so strongly try to defend.?

No honor killings? When 2 daughters go out with non Muslims, their father kills them with the aid of their brother(his son). Please reconsider that idea as well. The recent events do tell another story.
