I guess you do not understand that the problem many people have with Islam/Islamism is exactly that fact. If Muslims practiced their religion in peace and left everyone alone, NO ONE WOULD HAVE A PROBLEM! See how easy that is?

But when you have murders, massacres, terror attacks, honor killings, all in the name of Islam, discrimination suits, demands that everyone eat Halal, build special rooms to wash their feet at airports or on University campuses, segregate men from women during swimming or other sports, refuse to pick up customers who carry alcohol or dogs, or observe Muslim traditions so as not to offend them, then we have a problem. Capiche?
