I speak on this subject because I have read and studied two different English editions of the Koran. I have also studied both the old and new testimont of the Bible.

The Koran is a badly edited and organized book telling Muslims how to conquer the world in the name of the warrior priest Mohammad. I found the book and its asocaited texts to be violent and closed in terms of any inner refelction. In fact, Muslams are encouraged not to critically examine the meaning behind the book. This is a recipe to create a stagnate religion as Islam is.

I believe that Muslam's must be resonsible for destroying the radical elements in their own religion who would have them inact Islamic law (Sharia Law) all over the Earth or all other people (Christians, Jews, Shintoists, etc.) will get tired of Muslam intollerance and then all Muslams, not just the evil ones, will suffer.

Currently, we have over 100 wars (mostly small brushfire wars) on this planet this year. In over 90 % of these wars, Muslams are involved. Why is this? Why has Islam never been able to exist in a friendly manner with its neighbors? I believe that the roots of these wars can be traced to Islamic priests who incite their followers. Islam doesn't mean "peace" - it translates to "submission". Many people don't know this.

By the way, many Muslims that I know don't even read Arabic - they just memorize the verses. When I ask them "What does this verse mean?" - they can't even answer. When they read it in English, many of them have been surprised by the evil of the text.
