Muslims do not attend madrasahs to become great threats to the world...they attend for the same reason that a a christian child will go to a christian school...to learn about their religion. We want to understand it and practice it. That's all. When Muslims teach others about our religion, we dont force anyone. It is all a choice. We dont torture them like the other religions used to do in history. We dont move to other countries to take over and gain power. We do it to gain education, to live a life. ALL Americans dont stay in the US all their lives. They like to travel, right? We do too. We want to see the world and different cultures. We want to live with the americans as equals but if some of them keep showing their hate, how can we? We just want our religion to be understood, then you guys can say what you wanna say...just read the quran first. Read it...and understand it. Compare Islam to other religions, and see if you have as many questions as you had before.
