Safrawrites: "Turkey has a 98% Muslim population - and how many radicals? It's probably the most moderate Muslim country on the planet due in large part to its functioning secular democracy."

And do you know the reason why Turkey is a "moderate" country, if that's what you want to call them??? It's because their leader Kemal Ataturk separated the religion from the governent to modernize Turkey as opposed to what all other Muslim countries do. Although the present day Islamists in Turkey are bringing the religion back into the government and don't worry,Turkey will also soon become like the rest of the other Islamic countries.

"Indeed, Britain is probably more radicalized than Turkey (as shown by the recent bombings in London). And the reason Britain is more radicalized is because its democracy does not reach those who are isolated and marginalized in ethnic ghettos - those people do not feel like they are part of the system and so do not participate in the system. As a result they feel that they have no voice.

What nonsense !!! Blaming others for theri own faults and problem is an old Muslim trick . Muslims in Britain are behind because they do not want to modernize and assimilate with the rest of the society and they continue to cling to their old ways creating the same society tha they left behind wherever they came from. And they want to impose their ways on the host country. How ungrateful. Britain has immigrants of other religions, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, etc. Do these people have any problem with the host country??? Why don't they feel marginalized as Muslims do??? Why don't they become terrorists like Muslim do??? No, it's always the Muslims who cannot live anywhere peacefully.

"So Britain is not a perfect democracy, but it will learn and it will get there and bring those who feel marginalized into the system, and radicalism will be minimized as a result - I have no doubt. Same thing with the rest of the European nations."

Total nonsense!! Muslims are terrorists because of their religion

"The Phillipines is a separatist rebellion, where the rebels happen to be Muslim. They are no different from the Kurds fighting the Turks, but because they are Muslims fighting Christians you somehow see it in a different light."

Once again, as I said, Muslims cannot live peacefully anywhere. Period. They are fighting in Phillipines, Thailand, Chechnya, Kashmir, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Somalia, Nigeria, Kenya, or any other part of the world where the Muslim population exceeds 5% or more. Muslims and peace do not go together. It has never happened in past and it will never happen in present and future!!! ...
