We humans are at the knowledge age sooner or later civilizations will find a meeting point to share both similarities and differences. Nations are in the favor of opening their doors to globalisation not isolating themselves from others.

Religion is not unique identity saying who you are, but it might have higher priority among others. People in this discussion group thinks that it is worth knowing who Muslims are, what they believe, the difference between their religions and Islam. Most of them don't like Muslims like you but they still want to know how 1/5th world population think about God. Why? Because unknown is always attractive.

You say that they live in dark. If Muslim countries stop selling petrol to West you might live in dark as well :-)

All nations are not supposed to live and think at the same manner. There will be always Muslims, Hindus Buddhist or atheist. Like or not. It is reality.

You wrote that
"We left the dark a long time ago and we don't want to go back"

That means religion was get rid of from the society. No more inquisition, no more religious opposition to scientist like Galileo, or burning women. No body cares what Pope tells about homosexuality or abortion. This is how people handled Christianity at West. Muslims don't have these kind of things in their history. We Muslims haven´t come to dark age yet.
