I konw many muslim people having spent a great deal of time in Turkey. i consider Turks to be a very moderate in their religious beliefs,but take the muslim faith as a whole and it is mostly made of from people with a very poverished background. Ask yourself why is this, I believe it is because these people are promised so many things by islam or so they are lead to believe.

Islam is a political force that uses the heart of men to spread anti christianity.Of course there are good muslims that truely believe in there believes and i find nothing wrong with that but there are those within islam that use it to there own ends.I never once heard of one rich muslim blowing himself up in the name of islam it is always some poor idividual that has nothing to lose and everything to gain or so he thinks in giving his life in the name of alha.

What kind of people use religion in order to achieve there ends ,well i will tell you political people not true believers What kind of religion is islam if it breeds violence towards its fellow men. I believe that any true religion if practised right would only want to do good for mankind. Route out those at the top those that fund those below to carry out the terrible crimes against inocent victims.start in Soudi Arabia where all the rich instigators of violence come from finish these people, then maybe islam will become a more accepable religion, because right now it is loathed by the rest of the world for its violent acts.
