in response to reader comment: Don't hate muslims..hate the terrorists

...Muslims need to wake up to the fact that their religion is only growing through birth rates in the underdeveloped world, not the spread of popularity of the religion. Therefore they are only causing more poverty in their region. Christians are able to combine prosperity, compassion and religion with a quality of life, whereas muslims cannot. Muslims seek to impose their failed system of governance on more sensible and humane people. I just feel sorry for those muslim women who are forced to marry those... blokes!!

I went to a school that was fifty per cent jewish and not one of them sought to impose their religion on me, I have great respect for jewish people in this country who show enterprise through business, eloquence in politics and also fairness in marriage. Hindus in India are also a progressive and forward thinking people, where religion is important but they are not so fanatical that they attempt to limit freedom of speech. The difference in quality of country between India and Pakistan is extremely evident and only India's way of life is relevant in the 21st century.

Name one liberal democracy with a good human rights record that is a muslim country, there isn't one...
