This is absolute trash! Have you actually lived with Muslims in a Muslim community - clearly not. They are a peace loving people who certainly do not wage permanent jihad on the world. Clearly there are some crazy people in the world who do crazy things and actually usually in the name of religion but let's get things straight here. As far as Israel is concerned - they have thousands of prisoners; mainly Lebanese; some of whom have been prisoners for most of their lives (if they are still alive) but no one reports this. Many Arabs (mainly Sunni) do go and fight for Muslim causes all round the world - many went to Bosnia for example and not for money I might add. All of these things I know for a fact as I live and work with the families of these people so do not tell me (a Westerner) about Muslims when you clearly know nothing worth repeating. Although many Muslims hate America, this is mainly as a result following the US reaction after 7/11 - Muslims worldwide were deeply saddened by this tragic event and are disgusted by the actions of fellow Muslims who have resorted to terrorism which is so totally against the Koran. Next time you write such damning words about something you know nothing about just stop and think about the harm you are doing. Do you want Muslims to continue to hate Americans?
