"in the Islam (like you are, or maybe you do believe in Islam..), are clearly proving this concept."

As You can see from my nick name I AM NOT MUSLIM. If You didn't understand neither this, I am really asking myself how can you really say you are not influenced at all by the media etc. I hope You won't find this comment offensive, if You do -- I'm sincerly sorry because that surely is NOT my intention.

"Please go to Paris suburbs and tell the Muslims that Christ is the father of mankind. They will probably burn you alive."
I don't know if You are really aware of this, but You are making an extreme example. As You know France is a country whit a law regarding the religious symbols that is completely unfair toward the muslim community. A law which is making the 2nd, 3rd etc generation immigrants (or better, FRENCH people of muslim religion) feel completly rejected by their own country. (A country that - by the way - is claiming to be a lay country. But I don't really understand how can a country be "lay" and still interfere with strictly religious issues) In this state of things, the action You are talking about would certainly be taken as provocation.

"Multiculturalism may be a good thing if normal populations are involved. However, Islam is against multiculturalism and the citations from the Koran as well as the Imam's worldwide preaching sessions, inciting and stimulating their believers for violence against "non-believers""
Those imam's that incite violence are a minority and are using their own religion for POLITICAL purposes. Islam itself can stand multiculturalism and all the people around the world who are not extremist and are integrated in the Western society are the proof. (And now I am talking about my experience, about muslim people I know)

As a European, I think Europe oppressed many countries all over the world in the past. Somehow we tend to forget that we built what we have on other people's shoulders (most evident example: colonialism). Regarding the immigration politics: nobody worried about those policies when cheap labour was needed. Don't pretend that Europe ever really cared about those people. If we did, things would be better now. In the end, what those people are asking is religious freedom (which means also respect for their religion) and not to be discriminated as they often are (especially since 2001) in their own countries.
Try to think about relationship between Catholic Church and Islam. The relationship is peaceful. Do You think that would be possible if Islam itself incited violence against non muslim people?

Peace :-)
