Why do Muslims continue to adhere to a religion whose behavior is atrocious and morally offensive to nearly everyone on earth?

In the Sudan, 2 million Christian/Animists were starved and slaughtered and now that Sudan's Arab Islamist government is slaughtering Muslims, the world is suddenly worried... In America, we have Muslims supporting Hezbollah in Dearborn, MI and NY. The best thing for Muslims is to renounce Islam. It's the only method whereby they can regain their humanity. There is nothing humane about Islam. I don't respect it as a religion and Islam remains the sick man on the planet.

I could never subscribe to a religion that promotes pedophilia, oppresses women, encourages murder and has contributed absolutely nothing to human civilization. Look at the Muslims around the world - they live impoverished ... completely devoid of achievement, high culture, humanity and those qualities which render peoples and civilizations great. In Asia, once one of the poorest areas of the earth, Islamic nations lag way behind other Asian societies who are achieving remarkable success. Compare Israel with the rest of the lunatics in the Middle East and Israel is the only shining star, the only economically viable economy and the only functioning democracy.

Frankly, I'm fed up with Islamism and its hordes of sickos who video tape throat slittings and other hideous atrocities. The endless rage in the streets tells me that I wouldn't want these people as my neighbor. In truth, Muslims have been denied their humanity and the liberty to achieve their human potential. Also, there is something radically wrong with a culture and religious combination that only delivers Saddam Husseins, Qadaffis, the House of Saud, Assads and other wordly butchers.

It's time for Muslims and Islam to focus on their own miserable failures and stop pointing the finger of blame at Israel, America and everyone else on the planet. Islam has a theology problem and a cultural problem. Essentially, Islam isn't compatible with anyone.
