Translation of your words: Diversity is bad. True peace can only be achieved by killing the competition.

...You're not helping the image of your religion any. I'll stick to Christ, thank you very much. At least He was a teacher and a healer and never touched a sword.

I've got no opinion of Islam. Supposedly it frowns upon suicide and views men and women as equals. Strange how many Muslims practice the opposite. I don't think its fair to blanket an entire religion or its people as evil. But Islam seems to be the most disjointed religion and the most likely to breed troublemakers and violent assassins.

Christianity had its dark spots like the Inquisition and its Bible thumpers who twist the word of God to preach insanities like Harry Potter is evil. But it seems like in a lot of places where Islam is prominent, the whole country seems permanently stuck in the dark ages. Thank God I knew a moderate Muslim while living in England. He reminds that it's not the religion. It's the people.
