I refer to the article: Submitted by Adem, August 30, 2002 at 15:26, "Why Christians hate muslims".

I have to add one thing that makes people realise why Islam is growing so fast which you raised in point 3.

1) Unlike most religions today, Islam still holds strongly to the fact if you want to marry a muslim (whether male or female), you must convert to islam. However if the person does this for marriage, deep in their hearts they are not a muslim if they do not practice or believe in the religion.

2) In some countries where islam is the main religion, men can still marry up to four wives, meaning in most cases their ofspring is not doubled, but Quadrupled many times over.

If it was not for these two factors, Islam today would only be a small religion. However if the terrorist keep going the way they are and creating more and more global hate for islam, it want be long before those who are not muslim lash out against islam, maybe as far as ethnic cleansing of muslims. People can only take so much before they reach a point where enough is enough. If those who are considered peacful muslims cannot bring these people under control, then all muslims will face the same revault. Why, is because most of the world does not distingish between a bad or good muslim, you are either a muslim or not. History has showed us this.
