Jay Esbee is right to point out Islam is aggressive & violent in nature, and Dr Pipes is correct to say Islam's aggressive behaviour accelerated since last century.

Any extreme ideology or faith is integrated with extreme intolerance to women. Islam is no exception. Frankly to say, I have never seen a muslim attending a mosque with his wife, sister or daughter and praying side by side. Recently I hear few muslims in India revolted against this system and attended the prayer service with with female counterpart. I like to say, is it normal human behavior?
May be exception is there, but that's not the rule.

Holiest shrine of Islam is in Mecca & Medina. This two holy sites are forbidden to non- muslim. If a non muslim visit there with a respect to Islam, will be beheaded. In the eyes of muslim all non muslim are infidel. Their footage desecrate the holy shrine.
I like to say, Is it normal human mindset? Till to date no mild muslim raised objection against this barbaric system. Every religion has it's prophet. Prophet is the intermediary in between God & believer. Believer love to see god through the image of prophet. Image of prophet is inseparable from believer. Image of Muhamed is non-existent in muslim mind. If a muslim paint an image of Muhamed, it will be considered as blasphemy. That muslim will be killed immediately. Mild muslim will cheer, 'well done'. Now I like to say, is it normal human behavior?

Here I conclude, if all the faiths on the earth is one side of the aisles, Islam is on other side. So many people from so many faiths lives in America for centuries. Exclude Islam, we will see harmony, mutual respect & peaceful co-existence among all faiths. All people from all faiths highly appreciate America's secular credentials. Everyone is happy with freedom of religion. Include Islam in American society, here begins animosity, hatred, violence & religious divide. This scenario is not only in America but all over the world. The world is polarising on religious lines, those who surrender to Allah & Q'uran, and those who not.
