i dont fully agree with your implosion theory. due to brainwashing or whatever, they are perfectly happy with what they have and in addition want to convert the whole world to their way of life

a proof for this is the educated muslims in india and in western countries where they are exposed to various ideas. but they appear to be fully satisfied with the teachings of their faith and do their bit in islamising the world

i think that a question which should be fully explored is: why even educated muslims are so committed to their faith and can not see any fundamental shortcomings in it.

'brainwashing' is a facile explanation and i strongly feel that there is something more. unless we find it we shall not be able to tackle the islamic menace
