    In this case the writer is an agnostic Jew, however there is something here for any:

    Does anyone doubt that the Islamic terrorists target Jews?

    I rather doubt it.

    People downplay it, they negate it, they justify it and they support it by their blatant verbal attacks which agree with Muslim theology and extremism.

    The thing is, Islam as it exists for most of the people who practice it is a violent, repressive religion and its FOCUS is to kill/subjugate non believers and women.

    I recommend the book "Infidel" to anyone who still thinks we are the reason we are targeted for violence by Muslims. See how they treat their own women, and you'll have no doubt they have no issues with striking out at others. The purpose of Islam is to FORCE CONVERSION and kill those who refuse to convert, or who leave the religion (apostates).

    Any religion can be a violent repressive religion for some people who practice it. All religions have extremists.

    And that is exactly what I'm talking about.

    All religions have extremists, but the Muslim religion is an extremist religion which teaches, in the Quaran, violence and the repression of women and death to Infidels universally.

    While we all have our occasional spastics and retards who will use religion as an excuse to nut out; it is an aberration. In the religion of Islam, this is the behavior that is taught by the Quaran and instilled in children from birth.

    We don't tolerate Mormon polygamy or arranged marriages. I'd like to know why we are so tolerant of Muslim honor killings, child abuse, wife abuse, and repeated attacks on innocents in the name of "tolerance" for Muslims? Why should we be tolerant of a religion from which so much violence and hatred comes daily? Why should we be tolerant of a religion which fills shelters in Holland with battered wives and children? Why should we be tolerant of a religion that will NOT speak out against honor killings, the genital mutilation of children, and regular beatings?

    Historically, Islam was spread throughout most of the world by the sword.

    Nowadays, terrorist excesses excluded, mostly its spreading by the green card.

    If that is true, then there are a huge number of Muslims that don't do what the Koran says

    Are we?

    That and by out-breeding Christians and Jews.

    Something along the lines of no one should call NYT the Jew York Times because apparently they now hate Jews.

    I also heard they never reported on the Crusades so they probably are Christian suck ups.

    It is true. If you aren't aware of it, perhaps you should stop jabbering and look into it.
