You state that, Obama says there can be peace, "if only Israel &/or America were to." I've listened too many of Obama speeches, but have never heard him state the above. I'm not an Obama fan, since he grew up as a Muslim, and attended Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.

Question 2. You state that; "For all I know, it could be a religion of peace". However, based on Koranic texts that I have read about in numerous articles, it certainly appears to me that no amount of compromise, no amount of appeasement, no amount of apology, will satisfy, until the rest of the world submits to Islam". I agree with your statement except that you say that, "Islam could be a religion of peace". Quotes from the Glorious Qur'an: Sura 3Aya85: If anyone desires a religion other than Islam,(submission to Allah), it will never be accepted from him. Sura 4Aya89: But if they become those who deny Islam, catch them and kill them wherever you find them. Sura 8 Aya12: I will bring about terror into the hearts of the disbelievers: So you strike above their necks and hit hard over all of their finger-tips and toes. Sura 9Aya123: O you who believe! Fight such of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find strength to you.
