    We saw the tyranny over democracy in Myanmar but it does not matters to America. But in the same case in Libya we see another picture. Many countries Israel has nuclear weapon but America has no headache on Palestine Issue. But when Iran has just nuclear plant, they enforce embargo. Is Islam really a problem?

    Islam is Not the problem.

    Islam is the solution.

    Islam itself isn't a problem.....but what it breeds is.

    It's like the belief that all Muslims must kill the infidel when you find him.

    The actual verse says to kill the infidel when you find him burning down your house, or something to that effect.

    Some believe only in the first version.

    The problem lies in the interpretation of the meaning of this verse.

    Man's pride along with all of his flaws is the problem.

    Islam didn't become a problem until they found out there was oil under the sands of the Middle East.

    It became a problem when somebody else found oil under their sands.....and they started having to interact with infidels.

    It's exactly the same thing that happens in Christianity.

    People take a Bible verse out of context.

    And that's when the problem begins. :doubt:

    I guess when a thieve breaks into your house you have to interact with him.

    Islam is merely plagiarized Judaism and Christianity concocted by a caravan hijacking pedophile married to a 6 year old when he was 53.

    You don't have very high standards for your "prophet"

    It looks like this thread is in for some serious StoneSpamming!! I predict 25 pages of entirely irrelevent quotes from assorted American sources!!

    To answer the OP - I think there is a problem with Islam, but I don't think Islam is the problem.

    By which I mean, 95% of Muslims live perfectly peacefully and never do anything to hurt anyone, whilst being perfectly good Muslims. They are invariably polite and hospitable to visitors of other religions, and want only peace.

    But there is that 5% that clearly are a problem. The extremists and radicals who use Islam as an excuse to wage war. If they were not Muslims, they would be Communists. If they weren't communists, they'd be nationalists - they just want to fight. (In the same way we see posters like Stone use religion to justify racial hatred. If it wasn't Islam - he'd hate some other group).

    I do think we in the west need to guard against extremism - but I don't think we need to guard against Islam.
