Your points on polygamy are quite valid

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?

Although your points on polygamy are quite valid, there are far more problems with Islam than mere polygamy. Many of these men who volunteer themselves as"cannon fodder" have wives and families that they leave behind while they tend to the higher calling of deadly jihad. Immediate entrance into paradise while bypassing judgment appears to be a powerful motivator.

It's really quite unique in human history that a combination of theology and culture can produce such a deadly and combustible ideology. Execept for those admirers of Daniel Pipes and other dedicated scholars who work tirelessly to educate us, the vast majority of Americans remain clueless. But 5 years after 9/11, I'm relieved to find that more and more Americans are finally waking up to the threat of Islam.

I only wish that our PC government would acknowledge that the religion of "peace" is anything but peaceful. With the State Dept. issueing tens of thousands of visas to Islamist nations, we can be assured that the Wahhabist Muslim Student Association will be inundated with new members. Also, it was recently reported that under Bush, Muslim immigration to America in 2005 exceeded all Muslim immigration for the preceding 20 years. This is very dangerous and government policies are increasing Islamic numbers in America. Accordingly, Muslim power and influence will accelerate as they reach a critical mass. In Minnesota, a Nation of Islam, CAIR supported Democrat will be the first Muslim member of Congress. We can be assured that any legislation offered by Mr. Ellison will be drafted by CAIR.

Why does our government fail to look to Europe to learn the bitter lessons that have so traumatized Europe?
