Oh really? 'There are some baddies in every religion' Why is it that we see Islam commiting terrorist acts again and again, why is it that ISLAM is the one that produces protests and death threats from THOUSANDS when Muhammad is portrayed? WHY IS IT?!

WHY IS IT that nations which are predominantly ISLAM treat women like second class citizens or worse. WHY IS IT women are considered less than men? WHY IS IT that women are lashed/stoned/jailed for being RAPED under Islamic laws? WHY IS IT that ISLAM is the one thats having big rallies calling for the death of cartoonists? WHY IS IT that ISLAM IS THE ONE THAT DEMANDS TO BE SPECIAL AMONG ALL THE OTHER RELIGIONS? WHY IS IT THAT ISLAM CANT JUST SHUT UP AND GROW UP?! WHY CANT IT TAKE INSULTS/HUMOR WITH A STRIDE? Like a child it thrashes and has fits and temper tantrums when others pop their little bubble. WHY IS IT THAT THOSE THAT WANT TO LEAVE THE RELIGION ARE KILLED OR JAILED? FROM MY POINT OF VIEW ISLAM SEEMS LIKE A CULT!

The only nation I know of which is predominantly Islamic but respects the rights of its people and are compatible with the west is Turkey. Which has a SECULAR government, and a SECULAR military that has KEPT the government secural through the use of force should the government move toward religious radicalism.

Some call Islam a religion of peace, I say BS! A Caliphate invaded and conquered much of Iberia (present day Spain) and it took centuries for the Europeans to expell the invaders. This was called the Reconquisita, and this led to the Crusades which the Christians saw as a war of liberation.

Ill accept Islam as a peaceful religion when and IF Islam wakes up to the wide world and stops these horrific crimes against humanity.

Hate begets hate, revenge begets revenge. But to end a cycle of violence you sometimes need a greater violence. Islam must grow up or be ground to dust for the out of date and mysogynistic and anti-freespeach, slavery allowing religion it is.
