lol @ this thread.

I think most people who know some muslims (like myself) will know that they are like most people - wanting to lead normal, productive lives, have families, stick to traditions, and are at least spiritual. Just like normal people. They just happen to practice differently. From my perspective, all religions are crazy, but that's just me ... .

It is because of a few rotten apples and some shouting and a very violent minority that it gets a bad reputation. And before we forget WHY there's this violent minority, let me remind you of the past 60 years of US and Soviet / Russian messing around in that region of the world, primarily for oil, and a misplaced sorrow for the millions of Jews who died during the Holocaust that spurred the creation of modern Israel at the expense of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians.

Misplaced sorrow? I'm guessing that you didn't check the link a couple of posts back did you. I do agree about the US and Russia butting their noses where they don't belong though. The US particularly has a habit of doing that.
