the warm and fuzzy Islam is not what we're talking about

Mr. Ali writes:

"There are so many details in the Qur'an, Sharia and Moslem society. There are so many Moslems who cannot be stupid in embracing Islam."

So many Muslims have no choice. And many who do choose something else, even in the West are then threatened in some way up to and including death threats. You know this.

And do you accept '"There are so many details in the New Testament, Talmud, Bhagavad Gita etc and non-Moslem society. There are so many non-Moslems who cannot be stupid in not embracing Islam." ???

"..... But to generalization runs counter to common-sense."

Not at all. i.e. all Muslims are not bad people - but many people intent on carrying out crimes of destruction are Muslims. Muslims are told that Islam is the supreme religion and many Muslims want to position themselves so that that becomes true. Do you deny this? It is a generalization maybe - and in this case - you are right - because the Muslim aim is not common sense.

" Islam is simple in its teachings and practices,"
so is Buddhism and Christianity - and Hinduism is not that complicated yet Muslims have a real problem with tolerating these religions presence at all in Muslim (and non-Muslim countries). So don't smoke-screen the reality of the hypocrisy and intolerance of your co-religionists. It's not a warm and fuzzy live and let live attitude that Muslims have. This is closer to Mecca the more intolerant Muslims become (or are they equally intolerant everywhere - just hiding it better in the West because they have to??)

" ....You make your own interpretations and believe them yourself."

And maybe you do something different? Take your mullah's interpretations and believe them yourself?
