in response to reader comment: I do not agree with Daniel's concept of possible "evolution" of islam

In historical time, it wasn't that long ago that Christianity was an extreme militant religion lest we forget the Crusades and the Inquisition. It took almost 2000 tears for Christianity to reach it's golden ecumenical age. Islam is only 1300 years old----it needs more time to mellow. In 700 years, if we survive, we all be friends and no need to mention the war!
