Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict
in response to reader comment: Muslims also hostage to culture of violence; polygamy partly to blame?

You are right Shefali. There are nutcases in every religion. But then, this percentage of nutcases is as high as 100% in Islam. Anyone who says he follows the Koran is a ......nutcase of course. A "moderate" Muslim is just a "moderate nutcase", who, inspite of his commonsense, believes the Koran, minus the violence.

As for the correlation of no-wives and terrorism, there is some truth. Mohemmed was at first married to a woman 25 years senior to him. His later marriages to nubile women was AFTER the invention of the tool of Islam. Looks as though Islam was one man's "manufactured contraption" for women, wealth and power.
