There is problem in banning islam. If there are no muslims in europe, on whom will you show your love as commanded by Bible (to love your enemy) You will not be able practice this love as you did in Srebrenisca or in Kosovo. See poor spaniard could not practice this love for more than 4 centuries as they wiped millions of muslims there during reconquesista.

Then only way to practice the biblical obligation would be to go on bombing expeditions in far away muslim lands. But you see, playing kill a muslim game though much enjoyable, does not come cheap. Now majority of christians in USA are against bombing (love) in Iraq, Afganistan or Pakistan as it has become very costly. They are paying some 30 billion every week to bank roll this out pouring of christian love. Some even say with a tiny fraction of that amount you could eradicate poverty in entire Africa, but there in it, neither it will allow you to fulfull the biblical command to love thy enemy.

My advice is not ban islam. Keep them alive, you can have some local fun off and on.
