Islam is a political doctrine that is against democracy and human rights. It professes oppression of women, sexual abuse of children, intolerance of other faiths, brutality and fear as a way to govern. Why did it ever spread? It spread only due to war ( convert to islam and they let you live), fear ( one can not leave islam, nor question it---the punishment is death), lack of education and povery, thus, high birth rates. It spread in poor countries through wars (Arica), through fear and intimidation of other religions, wherever muslims become a majority. Like, Coptic Christians are now a minority in Egypt and being killed regularly, especially during Easter and X-mas. Now there is less that 10% of them.

Egypt is on of 'moderate" muslim countries. In a British town of Luten, i believe, with growing muslim population, now muslims ask for a Sheria law in England!!! There are many changes made in England to cater to muslims (halal meat at KFC, no pork in schools, swimming pool rules to accomadate burka wearers). Our liberalism is being used, and ultimately will be used against us. Why? Because Islam is a against democracy as we know it. We take for granted our freedoms and not really concerned with yet another mosque in town. I belive in freedom of religion, but i think that the religion needs to be studied and examined by legal court on weather, or not it stands for destruction of our values.

After all the crimes commited in the name of the religion by the followers of Islam, the premise of this religion needs to be examined and taken to court. Not only those people who do the bombing, beheading, stoning, etc, but the book that makes them do it. Islamic teachings should be examined by legal institutions. There is no radical islam, it is just Islam. Islam is radical. In USA , it is illegal to form a fascist and communist party. Islam is political in nature.Thus, Islam needs to be examined and put on trial. For long time America focused on an ideological enemy--communism. Nothing close to 9/11 came from communists, no Western embassy was ever bombed in the Eastern block during the cold war.
